Just Because!

I received these today and when I asked why, my husband responded with, "Just because!  I received a "Just Because" gift!  Such a nice and thoughtful surprise!

Life, friendship, purity, faith, hope, wisdom and have so many meanings. Their fragrance can be refreshing, soothing and relaxing!  Their colors can evoke warmth and or excitement.

Today, for me it's all of the above mentioned!  I love my life.  I'm growing in my faith.  I have hope in my future and I am thankful for wisdom.

I cherish both my husband's friendship and his love for me!  I have been blessed!

Just Because is a great way to show those who you care about how much you love them.

I'm Twisted out!

Wet Twists (left)/ Straightened (right)
I haven't been doing much of anything with my hair lately.  I wear my hair 95% of the time in the twists you see in the picture above on the left.  I have been telling myself lately, "I am bored with my hair", yet haven't made any attempts to change what is working for me (twists). I realize that I am just being lazy with regards to implementing the change I seek, because for me twists are easy to create and requires little to no maintenance. I would wear it straight to change things up a bit, but it's currently too hot to wear my hair straightened.  Besides, humidity and straight hair for me do NOT work!  Also, I want to do something different from just straightening my strands and pin curling.

In an attempt to motivate myself to begin the process of doing more with my tresses, I started viewing archived images of my hair to remind me of what it (my hair) and I can do when I exert energy and allow a little bit of creativity to flow.  I am eager to try new styles such as top knots (a style that is hot now that my Mom use to rock years ago!!!),  perm rod sets, flexi rod sets, etc....

Time to let the twists OUT!!!

What to do, what to do?...I know, let's try an updo!

I recently straightened my hair and a few days prior to wash day I wanted to try something new, so I did a search on-line for an updo style to recreate on my own tresses.

It's called the Gibson Tuck and can be found using the link below the above image.  My version is not as nice as her's, but it's not bad.  I think I'll try it again, but after my hair has been freshly straightened.  Give this style a try for yourself as it's a great protective style to wear while the hair is straight.  Hmm, I may even try it on a dry twist-out :0).
