Twist Out For Beginners

So I’m trying to figure out my curls & what they like or need rather. Part of that will require me doing less protective styling (a moment of silence for my faux locs & braids ☹︎) & learning what products my hair actually likes & showing the curls some serious love.

So, now i’m trying to use less hair ties & let my hair… View Post

Traveling to Punta Cana – República Dominicana

I have visited four different countries in my life, for that I thank my parents. However, now that I am older & have a much greater appreciation of various cultures & experiences I’ve decided to visit new places at least once a year. My first stop this year was the Dominican Republic! Specifically, I visited the town of Punta Cana. This area is at the eastern end of the Dominican Republic. It’s a very tourist oriented area well known for its beaches, fabulous resorts and tourist activities such as zip-lining & water sports. This was a birthday trip for one of… View Post
