Skin Care – Acne & Hyperpigmentation

Throughout my life my greatest insecurity has always been my skin. Unlike most people I know, the gift of clear skin was not in the cards for me that being said, I have always struggled with oily, acne prone skin along with post acne scarring, blemishes & an uneven skin tone.  As I write this post I can’t even begin to imagine what my skin would look like without the issues I mentioned before, never seen it! My primary concern is hyper-pigmentation because my skin scars VERY easily. Once I get a pimple I’m almost guaranteed a scar. In the…

Natural Hair Journey – Update 1 (July 2018)

  If you’ve been following along with me on my natural hair journey from the beginning with my initial natural hair post, you know that I’ve been fully natural since December 2015 after transitioning for one year. That would mean I am currently 2 years & 6 months natural! The time has flown by so fast! That also means I am well over due for a natural hair update. For the summer, I’ve decided to give protective styles a small break (well, we’ll see 🤔) & give my natural tresses some time to shine. I always wear my hair in…
