Catching up from catching up!

Sooooooooo... I wonder if anyone even noticed I was gone. This last week as been a testament to the fact the procrastination is the Anti-Christ. It creeps up on you and consumes your every waking moment. I won't bore you with the details but I literally have been waking up early and going to bed late because I have so many backed up errands that needed taking care of before school started back. 

So a little recap of the passed week.

I tried styling my hair with bantus but it came out horrible. What hurt the most was that I was so looking forward to wearing my hair in that style and then it let me down big time. I took out pics but they look terrible so I'm opting out of sharing them.

I'm still using the below products that I went over in a previous post. The moisturizer is really great and I have yet to see a split end since my trim.

Also I bought a new polish...

I'm making up my owm name for it since my dear sister took off the name sticker at the bottom of the I dub this color Pink Rose. Pretty color don't yuh think.

Oh before I forget, I have really been doing a lot of reserach into the best way to get my hair to the healthy point that I want it. After seeing a fellow blogger post about cleaning her hair with an organic soap rather than shampoo...bulbs went off in my head. You put so many good things in your hair to help it out then you break down that process with a shampoo that strips out everything. Kinda like taking two steps forward and one step back, don't ya think. Anywho, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in the Almond scent has been added to my haircare routine. I'm going to try it out tonight, then moisturize and seal with an oil mixture containing Olive, Peppermint, and Rosemary oils, the smell drifts you to sleep.

Ummmmmm.... I lost three more pounds. Yay me, I guess, my pouch is still poking out. I'm getting serious about exercising though, aiming for a concrete schedule of 5 days a week. I'm drinking water ONLY, and trying to eat whole wheat everything. Try it, if you find a great way to dress is up with healthy condiments I garantee you won't miss the refined whites.

My sister and I went shopping for engagement party things and we are coming up with a lot of ways to have fun at this party.  I have yet to let people know that they are cooking but how long do they actually need. Jeez... one month to go to get all the details under wraps. 

So what's been going on out there in the blogging world. I'm going to be catching up on everyone's posts tonight.

Until next time,
