Lisa explained the rules really well so I’m going to quote what she wrote.
The rules are quite straightforward, you

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 to tell that story after this one because that one is quite complicated. Today, I’ll be telling the story of how my bathtub beat … Read More
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 even now, it’s a dream come true as a new blogger to see your work on another platform. And they were willing to do … Read More
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 bit of my health situation in a previous post before (#WhatTheHealth|Hips Don’t Lie), but the majority of my time is spent at doctor’s … Read More
Previous #TackleThatFro post:
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 month. I had friends that had gone that route and they did it so they wouldn’t lose the length of their hair. So as their

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 every once in awhile so I thought, why not?
I’m really excited about this because this was my first time not only trying … Read More
(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 I’ll be sharing my personal health journey and stories. I wasn’t supposed to make a post today, but after spending most of … Read More
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! Now, this was sent to me from BzzAgent. They will send you products just for your reviews and I think this is awesome … Read More
(PAE note: I didn’t put a #hashtag title with this because I’m still unsure if I want to make this a series or not. If you want me to, please just let me know.)
As soon as I learned my colors, I knew something was different about my family. There were so many colors involved. The various hues and saturation of browns with rich undertones of yellows and reds. I’ve always been a curious person, even at a young … Read More
Happy #FRIYAY ya’ll! Once again we have gathered here to discuss the products you may want to stay away from if you want your #FRIYAY joy to continue all weekend. Today is a little different because I have the first hair product for this type of review. It’s a little interesting too because it’s a product that’s very well known. But I will say (type) that I gave this product more than one chance.
So I admit that I gave … Read More
