Cleaning Out My Closet

THE JUNK MUST GO!!!

Image

So its that time of year for me to really clean out my closet. I have to much junk that can be someone else’s treasure. As I clean out my closet I realize I purchased a lot of things that I really didn’t need in the first place. So I have decided to stop with the wasteful spending (yeah good luck with that). So I decided that I am going to donate some stuff and sell some stuff on eBay. So let me know what do you do with all of your stuff in your closet? Do you donate, give them away to friends, or pass them off as hand me downs to your love ones? Leave a comment below. Thank you for checking out my blog.

Earth’s Nectar

I have been searching for a pomade that is heavy enough to lay down my fly aways to give me a sleek and clean look when styling my hair. When going to Wal-Mart or Target I found various brands of pomade’s but had different chemicals that I couldn’t pronounce and never heard of. So I went to Google and googled natural hair pomade and the first thing that popped up was Earth’s Nectar Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade. Earth’s Nectar Hair and Skin Care are all natural products created by the owners of Natural Hair Resources Salon, that is located in my home town Houston, Texas. The Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade is an all natural pomade created with a blend of jojoba oil, almond seed oil, soy bean oil, cocoa seed butter, shea butter, vegetable wax and citrus essential oils. Earth’s Nectar products are pricey but you do get what you pay for, the Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade comes in a 8oz container for the price of $18.50. The Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade is a thick creamy pomade that melts very easily in your hands when rubbing the pomade in your hair. The citrus smell is strong but is not overwhelming, the scent will fade over time but remember a little goes a long way. I used the pomade to help me gain a clean and sleek look when styling my hair and I use the pomade to seal my ends as well. What I love about the Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade it leaves my hair very soft and helps with my flat twist and twist outs for a more polish look. Before I made my purchase I looked up and down on Earth’s Nectar website to see if they had a cheaper and smaller container but sadly they don’t. Usually I would complain about high priced products, but the Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade is really good and the amount you get for the price is not bad at all. I recommend this product to anyone who doesn’t mind spending a little money for hair products, there are other pomade products that are made with the same ingredients and work as well. But for me the Sweet Orange & Honey Pomade is what works for me and I just had to share this product.

Thank you for checking out my blog and see you next time.

Natural Hair Vs Weaves

Hello people how is everyone doing today? I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!!

So I was watching a video on YouTube video called Weaves Vs Natural Hair is a five-part video created by Gerreka Gilliam. First let me state my opinions about weaves, I have no problem with weaves, I don’t care what people put in their hair or don’t put in their hair. Everyone has ways to take care of their hair that make them happy. I love weaves but I made a decision to stop wearing weaves, because I just didn’t feel like spending the money to get my hair done when I can watch YouTube video learning how to do my own hair, it was to time-consuming and I notice how the friction from the thread was breaking my hair.

Now with that said I was watch Ms. Gerreka Gilliam video about Weaves Vs Natural Hair, which was pretty cool I think Ms. Gerreka Gilliam created the topic for a project for school I am not sure. I love watching videos like this on YouTube because I like to listen to people’s thoughts on natural hair and just African-American hair in general. But the girl who was dressed in all black just rubbed me the wrong way about what she thought what “Real Natural” hair should really be like. Let me say this if your going to talk about hair or natural hair period you should try to educate yourself before you try to make a counter argument. I am not trying to be rude or disrespect this young lady I was just going to ignore the video but I had to share the video, but when this young lady said your hair is not really natural when you put shea butter or conditioner to make your hair soft I was like PAUSE, I was like no that didn’t come out her mouth. I really thought Gerreka Gilliam did a good job with her talk show school project or not, I just think we need more conversations like this in order to erase the negative views that blacks and other races have on hair both relaxed, weaved or permed. Like I said earlier do what makes you happy just educate yourself and see if it works for you. Check out the video below and leave a comment about he video. Thank you for checking out my post.

Will the new iPhone 5s debute in multiple colors?

If your like me and are an Apple fanatic then you probably know that a new iPhone is just around the corner. Apple has already sent out their invites for a September 10th event that will be held at their campus in Cupertino, California. I am pretty sure the event will be about the new iPhone 5s I don’t know about the iPhone 5c (those crazy rumors) and probably other new things Apple has up their sleeves. If you have an Apple computer or a MAC laptop you can view the live event on Apples homepage, if you don’t have a MAC product and want to see the event live. I believe you can view the event by going to Apples homepage, or you can follow a live Twitter feed by following @PhoneDog or just go to www.Phonedog.com. If you are going to get the new iPhone and don’t want your old one, Apple has a buy back program for the following iPhones: iPhone 3s, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5. For more detail on Apples buy back program click on the links below. But I am pretty sure you can get more money by selling your old phone on eBay if it’s still in good and working condition. If your going to buy the new iPhone let me know by commenting below, if you’re not still comment below.
