Hey Coily Girls!! Happy July!!! I've been very busy with end of school activities and I'm also teaching summer school which began this week. In addition, I have gone through a lot in the past few months emotionally, financially, and health-wise, which just hasn't had me in the mood to blog. Thankfully, the storm has passed, and I feel like myself again!
I just got a trim and color last week, and this is actually the best cut I think I've gotten. My regular girl was on vacation, so I got a much older stylist, and was reluctant at first. Turned out she did a much better job than my regular stylist. I told her I wanted to start going darker with my color, so she darkened my roots, and I love the result. I got a lot of compliments. Also, my hair has so much body after the cut she gave me. Not sure what she did differently, but my hair just lays better than it ever did.
Today, my bf and I are hitting the beach. We will probably go to Wildwood.... haven't been there yet this year. I'm a Jersey Girl, so I grew up going to Seaside Heights (where Jersey Shore is taped), but that series has made "our beach" so trashy that I rarely go there anymore. Now all you see are fans and groupies of the show hanging out, and emulating the people on the show. Please.... lol.
I have a few pics..... I'll post them tomorrow, if I have time. Until then, enjoy your day!
I have my hair pinned up in the back with spin pins.
I've been gone for a minute, I know, so I decided it was WAY past time for a new post. Here's what's been going on with me. My bf and I went to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands for a much needed vacation last month!!!! I will post a few pics from that. I wasn't feeling so good, so I did basically NOTHING to my hair the entire time we were there. We had a great time, though... and although everything in the V.I. is overpriced, I plan on returning there again. I just loved the vibe on the island. We also got to take the ferry over to St. John. We wanted to go to Tortola, British Virgin Islands, but I don't have a passport. Maybe next time.
I didn't particularly care for the food there though. I am a huge fan of Caribbean food, but for some reason the food in St. Thomas was lacking something. Maybe it was the restaurants we chose, but I was NOT a fan at all! There was only one place I enjoyed, and that was in St. John, and it wasn't even island cuisine.
OK, so I'm having technical difficulty posting pics, so I may have to come back and add them later. As you can see, I have been growing out my color, so my roots are black, which is my natural hair color. I'm probably going to stick to the black and just do highlights from now on.
So.... I'll keep working on posting those pics. Talk to u soon...
Better late than never! Here are the pics I promised! As you can see, my bad hair days started the minute I got off the plane. I have NEVER seen my hair shrink up like it is in these pics. I had a puff from that point on!! lol
MY bf.... chillin on the beach!
LMAO! Can't believe I even posted these pics!!! I barely recognize this hair!
