My natural hair journey has ended up being a whole lot more than I initially bargained for, in a good way! It has allowed me to work on my research skills and practice patience during my sessions of how-to videos via YouTube. The videos have been more than phenomenal in making this transition back to natural one with more options than just looking like a hot ass mess everyday. I have learned soooo much from the naturalistas before me, that I wish I could repay them somehow! …and then I realized, hey, I can do alil video-making of my own. Then, after an entire day of playing around with some videomaker on my tablet andnintroducing it to YouTube these fingers said “hey! This ISSs kinda fun!!”
The next day my creation had 17 WHOLE views haha (this number is low compared to the billions of people who watch some of my favorite vloggers like Naptural85 and Joulezy)but hey its a start! And a very fun one. I have no expectations to become youtube famous or anything. Just extremely exciited to have found a new hobby that will hopefully help someone a half as much as my favorite youtubers have helped me.
….Never know, this skill may be useful one day

ok, so Im gonna let you in on alittle secret. This secret is very stupid, so if you tell people they’ll think I’m some crazy chick… okay… here it is…You ready?
– I am a product junkie!..yesss the big PJ!!! lol not only with like hair stuff, but nail polish, scarfs, body stuff….home remedies.You name it. I’ve probably tried everything under the sun, most recent being Apple Cider Vinegar-YUCK!
I originally picked up a bottle of Braggs Organic ACV because of all the raving reviews I’ve see from people using it on their hair- and I must admit…I incorporated it into my last wash day ( with the straighten and trim) and my hair is literally theeeeee softest that I have ever found it to be without leaving the salon. Even three days later! I’d absolutely co-sign this product for hair rinse, does wonders! However, that’s not why I said YUCK earlier.
Last week right before Aunt Florina decided to visit I began to drink a teaspoon in of ACV in my tea. Here are the observations:
1. It was extremely disgusting and hardly maskable with even the Rawest of raw honey ( the paste kind)
2. The acidity gave me a case extreme heart burn ( which I never get)
3. It made a bunch of little itchy pimples pop up all over my face ( YES this is the problem)
Now me being the soldier that I am, tried to disregard the bumps on my face and blame them on Aunt Florina. I let my face clear up and then, even with the terribleness of #1 and #2, on Sunday I decided to politely have another cup of Diluted ACV with raw honey. Monday my entire body itched!!!! and those damn tiny bumps are back and I woke up today with the same symptoms!! The good thing is my city is -8 degrees outside today so I don’t have to leave the house and expose my stupid rash. GRRRR!!
I’m done with our drinking relationship! But my hair loves you, so in that case you may stay in the cupboard
I ran across this on Pinterest the other day, whomever put this little gem together was speaking my language 🙂
This time of year is notoriously known as a period of both reflection and new beginnings. I am no exception. 2013 has been very good to me in ways, and very humbling in others. After being layed off in the summer, I was given a chance to reflect and rediscover “self” . I have always been the very social outgoing type, but when finances restrict you, you really have no choice but to spend time with YOU. For this I am grateful. This past few months has opened so many doors of discovery that I had never knew existed.
First and foremost I have learned to trust God’s will and Promises, and along the way I have also learned
…. to be myself
…. to be creative
…. to take care of my health
….about my history
….about the food system and our environment
…. to be financially frugal
…. as well as ALOT about friendship and LOVE
With that being said I will be taking my new found knowledge (and vegetarianism) into the new year. I have been sketching out 3 big plans that I would like to achieve during this lifetime -God willing. So stay tuned for updates!!!

What is fear? Why am I afraid to let my light shine? I have so many gifts that God has given me yet am just beginning to notice them,we’ll they have always been here but… to tap into them. I have the heart to take on the world but I chose to sit on the sideline with the normals . Dwelling with the sidelines as if tomorrow is set up to come slower. It was that bitch confidence all this damn time-fear vs confidence- two words I allowed to rule my thoughts. No more! Thank you fear for instilling humbleness but I have started a new relationship with confidence, she has allowed me to realize that no one will believed in me unless I believe in me.
Thank you confidence! For allowing me to wake up from that bad dream
It isn’t a crime to shine, just love God, be humble, and treat your neighbors better that you expect to be treated. That’s life ,lets live!
Hi, My name is Tonisha. A (late) twenty something year old lover of Jesus. I have learned a lot of lessons along the way,still learning. Coming into the woman God created me to be takes improvement, coming to this realization awhile back i now see that I am changing everyday, and i would like to bring people on my journey.
