Those Natural Girls

That is what I was called a couple nights ago by the fiance. To be honest, I smiled a bit at the thought. I mean I had transitioned for 6, almost 7 months before doing the BC and that was the end be natural. The more I have been reading and experimenting I am going more towards all natural products for not just my hair but my body as well. I can make most of the things that I use and or need.... Does this make me a natural girl. I'd like to think so.

What do you ladies think of when the term "those natural girls" are used. Most people tend to think they are vegetarians, who grow and make everything they use from toothpaste to diesel fuel (lmao), pot-smoking, reggae/neo-soul listening chicks. True I love reggae and neo-soul but I am also a HUGE pop music fan and even some rock. Sure I make body cream and hair products but I am not above trying the new product or eating NY strip.

I am just a normal girl who happens to be obsessed with my natural, chemical-free hair.I love the hair GOD gave me and love being as pure, fresh and simple as possible when it comes to eating and hygiene.

So what about you ladies? How do you feel to categorized in the group and what does it mean to you?

Kissably Soft Feet (DIY Pedi)

...okay so maybe nobody's kissing your feet, but they will be soft enough to....

I got the initial pedi procedure from but I tweaked to match what I had on hand. Most of these things were steps that I already take but adding Borax (yes Borax) to the mix was new to me and also the foot mask.

I followed her procedure but I didn't have any flowers and let my feet soak for twenty minutes. I made my scrub using whipping cream, sugar, vanilla and honey. Also I used some Bath and Body Works shea butter because I haven't received my 100% unrefined shea butter yet. I then wrapped feet in the saran wrap (have been doing this for years). I skipped the mask because I didn't have any on hand and I just wanted to work onmy "runner's feet".

I like to do it myself because as I often as I need this done, my pockets won't allow and not to mention I hate the mani/pedi salon as much as a hair salon. I know you are thinking my feet must be horrible, no they are not but to keep them from being horrible I have to pay alot of attention to them. I run about 25-30 miles a week.

I won't sleep in the saran but it has been on about 3 hours and will be about 5 by the time I take it off. My feet felt wonderful before this process and I can't wait until bedtime to check out the finished product.

If anyone tries this let me know how it went and if you tweaked anything or not. Ooowee I have summer feet!!!!


After taking out braids from under the quick weave. Not bad. I may wear it like this for the party.

I have not updated in a while. I have had braid for about three weeks and rebraided with my own corn rows underneath a quickweave. I wanted the straight look for a little while, to appease the boy over the holidays. However I miss my own hair.

You guys *me whining* i want my hair to grow faster. I am trying to have patience. I have been stalking fotkis and what not for days. I have been faithfully taking my vits though I have stopped taking them twice a day for a while. Oh I just got the Gueye Fast Growth Oil in. I haven't exactly figured out if I should use it every day or a few times a week.

I have taken out my braids from under the weave and I think I going to pre-poo with olive oil. I have found a site called to order 100% unrefined shea butter and I now I need some EVCO and Jamaican Black castor oil to add to the collection. I am going to try my own concoctions.

I am still learning ladies so bear with me. That is why I started this blog to go through this journey with other newly natural babes.

On another note I have a holiday party this weekend and I have no idea what to do with my hair. Any suggestions....
