Lol.  I am a riot. 

Anywho, today I am enjoying my first cup of coffee since late December.  I stopped drinking coffee because apparently my thyroid is a hater and doesn’t want me to be great.  Lol. But  if you know me, you know I will find a way to rationalize any choice I make, good or bad.  Thus my cup of coffee.

The way I see it, I’ve been eating fruits and salads consistently since the first of the year and I figure my body can take a little coffee every now and then.  Hell, i ditched Pepsi! Cut the girl some slack!!!! Sheesh!

We shall see…… I’ll come back with an update.  Smooches!!!!

A Mother Should NEVER Have to Bury Her Babies

Filed under: Uncategorized — naturallykish @ 10:56 pm

Time and time again because of the utter disregard for life, parents are burying their babies. 
There was a time when the young actually were allowed to live life without some asshole deciding to play God and take life.  Those days are way behind us and the
time we live in now, our babies are being murdered WHOLESALE!!

This subject hits so close to home that its sickening. I mean literally makes me ill.  On Friday, January 11, 2013 a young brother, my 21 year old nephew, Delroy Davis lost his life in these Baltimore streets.  He was seconds from his home and someone decided it was OK to kill him.  This young man wasn’t a street thug, a gang banger, a hell raiser, or a trouble maker.  He was a hard working guy coming home from work.

This shyt has to end!!!!! So many of our babies are perishing to senseless violence. THEY ARE OUR BABIES!!!!!  THEY ARE OUR RESPONSIBILITY!!!!! WE MUST PROTECT THEM!!!!! 

As my family and I prepare to return this young body to the ground I implore us all to do our part in saving a life.  Become a mentor, reach out to those lost family members and offer them an encouraging word, smile at someone instead of cussing them out, and most importantly Pray to God asking for an answer and then work feverishly to make a change.

There is a lesson in this for us because nothing happens without the permission of God.  That doesn’t mean it hurts any less…… Give your loved ones flowers while they are still here to smell them.  I love you all.

It’s been a little over a week since our sister abandoned us for the West Coast. Hmphfffffff

I cant speak for Tray and V but No, I’m still not over it.  I understand change and growth and all that malarkey but I’m still not completely over it.  Yes, I’m selfish.  Yes I want to be able to drive to “The Terrace” and she her chocolate face whenever I want.  Yes I want to be able to beat the crap outta my nephew (in love of course) just because.  Yes I want to be able to come over and get a chopped fish sub from Bro. David.  YES I WANT THESE THINGS!!!!!

But more importantly, I want my sister, my best friend, my confidant, my second mother (in her mind) to be free to expand her breasts and grow.  I want her to make decisions that are best for her family.  To be able to share the love that she has shared with us Baltimorons with the great state of California.  Her example of sisterhood is unmatched and I would be a fool to think that because she is 800 thousand million trillion miles away, that something would change.  lol  Yeah, I’m extra.   So what!!! lol

With that being said, I can finally say, enjoy California Reah!!!!! I love you and I pray to Allah that all your hopes and wishes come to fruition. 

I guess we can talk and Skype now….. HA

Sometimes I actually blog about hair……..

Filed under: Uncategorized — naturallykish @ 4:33 am

Hahahahahahaha. I swear I crack myself up.

Well…….

From the title of this blog entry, you can tell it’s gonna be about hair.  I posted a pic of my hair on FB and my sis asked me what products I used, what i did, etc.  Since I dont Youtube (yet) I didnt document my process but I can type out my steps here.

So here goes,

On Monday I did a pre-poo using conditioner and castor oil.  I took large sections of hair, moistened with the conditioner and applied castor oil.  I then twisted each section.  I did not detangle my hair before doing my pre-poo.  Last night I shampooed my hair while it was twisted  with Garnier Fructris shampoo for dry hair.  Now, normally I would use my Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle but b/c Ive used some new products and my hair hadnt been washed in a couple weeks, I decided to use something that would take care of product build up.  I then used my Tresemme’ Naturals conditioner. I smoothed it onto the twists, and put on my shower and steam cap.  I was being lazy and didnt feel like doing a deep condition (big mistake).  After rinsing out the conditioner I smoothed in some Aunt Jackie’s knot on my watch 12oz – Instant Detangling Therapy that I received in my December CurlKit.  Now, I was putting this stuff to the test since, like I mentioned before, I hadnt detangled my hair in a couple weeks.  Baby Jesus be kind!!!  Surprisingly, it actually worked. And well!!! THANKS CURLKIT!!! 🙂

Ok, so after detangling I noticed my ends were bushy as hell.  I dont know if it came from the shampoo, the fact that I didnt deep condition or the detangling product.  I decided that I would skip the rod set because I didnt have the patience to deal with those ends.  I had to get ready for Scandal.  lol So. what I did was smooth on some Olive Oil paying extra attention to the ends.  I then, smoothed in my Shea Moisture Curl Milk and then twisted my hair.  Since I wasnt pleased with my ends I decided to twist my hair in small twists and create an updo so I could protect my ends instead of my usual twistout .  I have attached a pic of the finished product.

I may start doing the ACV (apple cider vinegar) rinses for clarifying my hair instead of the harsh shampoos.  I honestly wanted to start the shampoo process over after feeling those bushy ends.  Hopefully its just my hair crying to moisture and they will revert back to normal after a couple days of TLC.

Thanks for reading.  Toodles!!
