☺My 1 Year Healthy Hair Journey Anniversary! YAY!!☺

September 23rd made it one year since I have been on my HHJ. I got started when I was looking for some products to take care of my hair since the stuff that I had been previously using was about to finish, and my hair was breaking badly. I was anxious and depressed because I didn't like the way my hair was looking, and I had no idea what to do.

I started researching products online and I came up on some You Tube reviews, that is when I found Traycee's (of K.I.S.S' -Keep It Simple Sista) channel (Kissseventyseven on You Tube)! God bless her for sharing her knowledge with all of us, and for free too! I watched several of her videos that day, and I joined her site. She was actually starting a protective style challenge which was to last for three months the next day, and I joined the group to participate. 

I bought myself a copy of The Science Of Black Hair by Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, and this book helped my immensely! I refer to it as my hair Bible, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has textured tresses whether it is relaxed, colored, or natural.

In the video, you will see what I started with, and how far my hair has come.  Love your hair, and it will surely love you back!

Highlights From Fashion's Night Out 2012 - Galleria, Dallas

FNO was held in various cities throughout the country on September 6th. It marked the start of the Mercedes Benz - New York Fashion Week. Here in North Dallas, I attended the FNO event at The Galleria. We (fashion industry folk) were all there, bloggers, vloggers, fashionistas, MUAs, hairstylists, photographers, editors, videographers, divos, divas, models, dancers, and designers! The runway flowed all around the ground floor, and had two step-up ramps. The models were dolled-up by Toni And Guy, and they were made to look like fabulous shoppers, with their big Texas hair et al!! LOL! 

They were glammed out in all the AW12 designer wear as they 'put the base in their walks' strutting by the retail stores and patrons. I loved it! 

Dallas fashion icon and renowned model Jan Strimple did it again! She is well known for organizing awesome fashion presentations here in D-Town! Various shops in the mall had their own in-store events taking place and some of them even had their own Djs! The event was well-organized and executed. It was fah-bue-lousssssssss!!!

I was able to capture some footage and images  to bring to y'all. Enjoy, and see you next year!!

If you are a beginner, then check out my "What's My Face Shape" video. That tutorial explains how to determine your face shape, and how to apply blush to it. It will also help you to understand which parts of your face you need to highlight, and which parts need to be contoured.
