Reminiscing on My Starter Locs



Reminiscing on my #starterlocs, I take you back to where my #naturalhair journey began. From perms, itchy scalp and hair weaves, to my transitional #hairstyles to avoid the big chop, to finding a loctician that I trusted, to starting my #locs on short hair and choosing the right method. Do I get two strand twist, braid locs, sister locs, comb coils? My loctician used the #interlocking method and I was able to wash my dreads whenever I wanted. 

Take a walk with me as I discuss my thoughts that led me to my hair transformation and discovering the #beauty of my natural hair. Also, embracing my new hairstyle that is more than just a style, it is a spiritual awakening bring me back to ME! My #locjourney has been similar to my health and wellness, happy and would not turn back.

I Dig This | Idahoan Signature Russets Review



I received a package of Idahoan Signature Russets complimentary for testing purposes via Influenster. To my vegan visitors, please know that this product is not vegan. Preparation was easy and the potatoes tasted great. My son really enjoyed them even though mashies are not necessarily his favorite side. There was a great balance of seasoning in the potatoes and I only added pepper to mine to taste. Creamy and good!

Youtube Creator Rant | Frozen View Counts, Getting 100+ Subs, Copyright Rabbit Hole and more...

Refocusing on being a deliberate creator on Youtube after having a channel for 7 years, has been an interesting experience so far. In the month or so that I been creating content, I have encountered frozen view counts around the 300 or 301 magic number and have researched the fix. Also, the whole culture of having less than 100 subs and the benefits or lack there of at that level in the Youtube Creator Community has been challenging. Also, copyright to knows and the sub for sub culture of Youtube are also challenging. Here more about my experience so far here. If you are entertaining the idea of becoming a Youtube creator or reinvigorating your existing channel, I hope this information is helpful to you. Share your insights with me as well!
