Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection

This post is sponsored by P&G. Compensation was provided by P&G via Mode Media.

Wash Day: one of my least favorite days of all time. Something about the process of cleansing the hair and scalp, that isn’t what I’d call a jolly good time. I do it because the results, those thick, soft and bouncy twists are well worth the effort. Cue in the new Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection.

3 Career Transition Tips

career transition tips

Two weeks ago, I started a new gig, 401 days since I left my last corporate position. Yes, I counted.

It feels good to be back in a corporate setting. Being among peers my age for the first time is certainly welcomed. I have two computer screens, which, the non-techie in me is amazed by. I’m doing much of what I’m skilled at, social media, and learning new techniques along the way.

Dare to Win

I took these shots in December, thinking I was going to write something about restarting for the New Year. That’s not really what I want to write about at all. I want to talk about winning.

Happy 5th Birthday, Lucy’s Pearls!

Lucy's Pearls 5th Birthday

I can’t believe five years on this blog has finally come. If I’m honest, I thought about closing up shop and ending this space at the end of 2014. Blogging is work. But when I look back to my first real post, I remember how excited I was to start a new journey. That, and you, remind me of what I’ve started and why I can’t let go just yet.

And It’s Not Even My Birthday: COCOTIQUE

My good friend Kim reached out to me about checking out the December box from COCOTIQUE. What is that, you ask? It’s an amazing company providing a monthly beauty subscription service to women of color. This box contains all things hair, skin, makeup, nails and even fragrances. It is what they call the “Ultimate Beauty Arsenal”. I am rarely, if ever, surprised. But when I finally opened the box, I couldn’t believe what was inside.

All I Want For Christmas – Blogger Holiday Guide

LUCY'S PEARLS (1)

Okay, I’ll just come out and say it: I hate Christmas. Maybe when I was a kid, it was all cute and enjoyable. We didn’t really celebrate the holiday but the streets felt so alive and everyone was filled with Christmas cheer. There was plenty of hot cocoa and endless holiday movies to watch. But now as an adult, it’s just another day off. BUT, I do like gifts. Thoughtful ones. If you have a blogger or budding blogger in your life and you’re contemplating what to get them, I’ve got exactly what you’ll need.

Manuka Honey is KING

So brief disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist or an herbalist. I am someone who tries to find the simplest ways to get maximum results, naturally. I’ve been very vocal on this here blog about my skin. That time I called myself not so pretty and healed my face in a week was really the beginning of my slight obsession with natural products. Now I won’t say I get all Martha Stewart in the kitchen and make everything myself. I don’t have time or patience for that. But I do try to find products that have the least amount of chemicals. And thus began my slight obsession with manuka honey.

It’s been almost three months since my summer internship at Caren West PR ended. Since then, my life has literally been a juggling experiment.

When I thought God wasn’t listening, I realized that He gave me exactly what I asked for and more.
