Operation: Back to School Organization #FAIL
  • September 23, 2015

Being a mom and wife, things don’t always go the way we planned. Life happens, right?

Well, with that said, do you recall my post in August about my plans to organize my children’s clothes each school week? Well, It worked for 2 days! Yup, you read right! Not 2 weeks… TWO DAYS! I hung up my children’s clothes (Monday thru Friday) and after day 2, they didn’t like what they picked out! All of my planning went down the with the rest of my failed ideas! All of the prepping wasn’t all a bust, I lay out their clothes daily after school. They chose what they wanted to wear the next day and set it out for the next morning. No fuss, right? WRONG!!

There are still some days where my son or my 2nd oldest daughter would change their minds 15 minutes before the bus arrived. But, like an experienced mom in the attitude department, I just wake them 15 minutes earlier just in case! LOL

Life sends us curved balls all of the time, but when you know the game, it is not so bad to deal with! Well, I’m signing off! I have kids clothes to fold! LOL

 

What are some of your failed back to school ideas? We all have been there! Please share below or on my Facebook blog page https://www.facebook.com/hisproverbs1822

 

My Softliss Keratin Treatment Experience: Week 2
  • August 21, 2015

As you may know, I am natural (hair not chemically treated) and have been for nearly 8 years! My hair grew, suffered damage, grew again and has been trimmed away. A few months ago, I’ve experienced stress related breakage which caused my armpit length to become barely shoulder length today. Now that that I am started this new hair journey, I wanted to try something different. Something that will make my hair more manageable and will promote growth. So for 7 months, I’ve been researching alternatives to relaxers (yeah it got serious). Luckily, my research ended where I found a stylist near by who specializes in Softliss Keratin Treatments.  I messaged her with questions and she educated me and reassured me that I would be grateful if I did it, but did tell me to continue my research. And I did!

After our family vacation( blog to come) and a few weeks, I scheduled my appointment July 31. THE BEST DECISION I’ve ever made!!

The process is pretty simple. My hair was cleansed 3 times. Then it was set for about 10 minutes…blow dried and flat ironed…then washed again and finally blow dried, flat ironed, trimmed and styled. The process was 2 hours total! Just as my specialist promised! She walked me thru the entire process the whole way through!

Well, two weeks later in 90+ degrees in Texas, my hair is still holding up! I washed my hair August 14 and here’s my hair after a wash. Pictures below documents my 2 week old hair before my first wash post treatment….my hair after the wash and condition…..then after blow drying and flat ironing.

The treatment will last up to 4 months depending on my wash schedule. Only stipulation is that I wash my hair with sulfate free products! Not a problem! I love the manageability of my hair! This was a great decision for my hair. Being natural, I’ve learned so much. My hair is unique and what works well with one person does not means it’ll work for me. I can’t wear my hair in its natural state comfortably without the fear of tangles, knots and breakage. The Softliss Treatment takes away those fears. I can style my hair easily and confidently. The price tag of this treatment was well worth the investment!

Stay tuned for my One Month Update!
