#WhatTheHealth| Bathtub 2 vs Me 0- Severe Ankle Sprain

I have this great talent of injuring myself in the weirdest ways. People always ask me, “Erika how did you do that?!” But the stories I have for my injuries are never that interesting, sometimes it’s just downright dumb. When my knee finally gave out, I was getting out of bed, nothing crazy. I will have… Read More #WhatTheHealth| Bathtub 2 vs Me 0- Severe Ankle Sprain

Friends & Brands| Style Comes from Within

At the beginning of the month, Style Comes from Within reached out to me on Twitter. The exchange stood out to me because they were honestly the first to do so. They only wanted to know if I would be interested in having on of my blog post published on their website. At the time and… Read More Friends & Brands| Style Comes from Within

#LifeInView| Where Would We Be Without Support?

I’ve been contemplating a lot lately. Entering the fall season always does that to me. The main focus of my thoughts has been on family, but since starting this blogging journey I realize the importance of friendship more, too. I mainly started blogging because I needed an outlet to express myself. I’ve discussed a little… Read More #LifeInView| Where Would We Be Without Support?

#TackleThatFro| The Big Chop & TWA

  photo cred: pierre_artista Previous #TackleThatFro post:  Introducing, #TackleThatFro Natural Hair Series #TackleThatFro| I Give Up Creamy Crack! At first, I started to stretch the time in between my relaxers. Then I just stopped with the relaxers completely so I could transition from relaxed to natural. I’d been told to clip my hair a little each… Read More #TackleThatFro| The Big Chop & TWA

#SPOTLIGHT Review| 7thHeaven Black Seaweed Peel-Off mask

These last couple days have been rough, I’ll admit. See previous post, #WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie, for more information on that. Earlier today, I was trying to think of ways to relax when I remembered that I had a mask pack that I never got around to trying. And let’s be honest, everyone needs to pamper themselves… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| 7thHeaven Black Seaweed Peel-Off mask

#WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie

(PAE note: Whenever my hip is bothering me like a toothache, I play this song. Sorry, I have a morbid sense of humor. Shakira- Hips Don’t Lie) After thinking about it for the majority of the day, I’ve decided to make another title series. This time though, it will be a little bit more personal, because… Read More #WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie

#SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk

I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found this in the mail when I came home from lunch. I mentioned in the #SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex post that I was looking for new skin care products to try and boom, found one!… Read More #SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk

#FRIYAY #3 Review| SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

So I admit that I gave into the hype when I first big chopped and went natural. I made the mistake of buying products because I heard a lot about them and I saw they were popular. (But doesn’t everybody?) In the beginning of my natural hair journey, I never really took the time to get to know my hair and figure out exactly what it needed. This is more so true when I had a TWA (teeny weeny afro). Because at the time, I would slap products on my head, think I was done, and call it a day.… Read More #FRIYAY #3 Review| SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
