Running Armband

I changed my mind about the cell phone case after I saw this pattern.

Crocheting Again

crochet to be awesome #crochet #quotes @Corina Gray

I have started back crocheting when I have the chance. I’ve already finished one item of mine. It’s a cowl and even though I know that I live in Florida, I know that I will need to use this on one of those very few cold days that I will need to cover my face when I’m outside. I can also use it as a really nice headband.

My next project is a cell phone case from, Crochet Geek, Love her btw, for my iphone since I KEEP DROPPING IT. Anyway, I tried to do it last night but it was too tight so I’ll have to do it again and lengthen the first chain that I will do. Below is the youtube videos for those of you that would like to try to do the pattern yourselves. I’ve also copied the pattern directions for those who would like to read the pattern instead of watch the video.

Loreal EverSleek Smoothing Deep Conditioner

Hey guys. I was reading one of Michelle Phan’s post on her website about the treat hair and she talked about this deep conditioner called Loreal EverSleek Smoothing Deep Conditioner. She’s all about being as natural as possible when it comes to skin and hair so I wanted to check it out on other sites. This is what I found below;

EverSleek Smoothing Deep Conditioning Treatment is an intensive, rich treatment that nourishes hair to control frizz and improve manageability. Natural argan, sunflower and olive oils penetrate the hair fiber to smooth and soothe without weighing hair down. Hair is left soft, shiny and virtually frizz-free. Deep, rich conditioning that nourishes even damaged, sensitized hair. Free of harsh sulfates and heavy silicones.

• Sulfate, paraben & silicone free
• 100% vegan – formula not tested on animals, no animal byproducts
• With argan, sunflower & olive oils
• Nourishes hair for 48-hour frizz control
• Leaves hair shiny & manageable

Directions: After using EverSleek Shampoo, apply and comb through wet hair. Massage and leave in for 3-5 minutes. Rinse. Recommended for weekly use.

So it’s easy to say that I have a new deep conditioner. She says that it’s suppose to be used once a week. Another thing I found out over the week is that it would seems that Walgreens doesn’t want to carry renpure argen oil anymore. *sad face* I don’t know why. I found the conditioners are clearance, great price but that means that it’s the end for it. I see that they still sale it online but I don’t want to have a shipping fee. *sigh* I went to Whole foods and found some natural shampoos and conditioners I could use but I feel as if I’m cheating. But is it cheating when they don’t have it available around you? *shrugs* Anyway, if there is a way that I can still use the product I will but since I don’t at the moment, I have to look else where. *Once again, sad face*

Chomping it off

Hello everyone. My most recent post was about the hair product Argen Oil that I’ve been using. It’s been working great. The only problem is that ever since I’ve taken out the twist, I have clumps of tangled hair. I can’t comb them out. So I decided to just cut it all off! My hair will be really short but it’ll  grow back. It’s hair after all. In the future I want to my hair to be styled like this:

I wanted my hair to be like that in the past but my hair was so long that I couldn’t part with it. Now that I have the chance to start over, I’m going to try it out once my hair is long enough. Oh yes and since I’m cutting my hair, I’m going natural as well. Now harsh chemicals. All natural products. I’m already starting off with the shampoo and conditioner that I’m using. Anyone else have any other suggestions for me for hair products, Thanks!

T.C. – Day 21

Day Twenty-One– What are your clothing sizes?

My clothings size right now? I would say that they are 5 in jeans and a medium in shirts. Dresses I don’t know because of the different styles. Like I said before, the problem with my size is that some clothes I can’t wear because of how they fit on me. But all of that will hopefully change when I’m down to a 120.

Question Pic

Merlot and Garnier

For a while now, I haven’t been taking care of my skin like I should. I use to be a fanatic about it. My favorite store was Bath and Body Works. Someone would have to pull me away from that store because I would drop $40 on different body washes and lotions. I guess it’s because of my job that I don’t have the time like I use to. I’ve been tired lately and rushing out the door all the time for work.  Now I’m trying to get back into the habit. I went to Walgreens and looked over the products they had for your face. I came across a product called Merlot 3-in-1 Blemish/Acne Treatment. It was on sale for a good price so I grabbed it.

This 3-in-1 treatment gently removes impurities with a purifying cleanser, combats blemish-causing bacteria with salicylic acid, and freshens and firms skin with a renewing toner. Natural grape seed skin care suitable for all ages and skin types.

  • No more kits
  • See results quickly

Apply a quarter-sized amount to wet skin.  Rub gently in a circular motion.  Rinse well, pat dry, and finish with Merlot’s Moisturizer.

Next I wanted a moisturizer for my face after I washed it because my face gets dry afterwards. I use to use Olay and Walgreens brand night and day screams. They worked and I was happy with them but when I went to Walgreens, I couldn’t find the night cream. So I asked a sales associate, a really nice lady who saw me in distressed, and she showed me a product from Garnier called Garnier Nutritioniste Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream.

Belly Dancing

What got me into belly dancing was going to 24 hour fitness. For the money they charge monthly, they have some classes I can go to. But anyway, I went to the belly dancing class there and I fell in love. I left the gym and now I need to find places that I can do the belly dancing. I went to meetup and found a place that seems nice. The place is called GODDESS DANCE, YOGA & CULTURE They offer a free classes for 30 mins. That’s enough for me. I want to own a belly dancing outfit so I went online and looked around. I feel in love with the outfit below. I don’t care if it covers you almost completely, it’s a favorite in my book.
