Bantu Knot Fail

17'

Hey Ya’ll! I decided to try Bantu Knots. I wanted to branch out and see what other things I could do to my hair. Well… it didn’t go so well.

I don’t have a picture of the actual bantu knots but as you can see there is a lot of frizz.  That is because my hair was still damp when I took it down. Big. Mistake.

My hair shrinks severely when it dries and it is super coily. So the bantu knots became tighter the more my hair dried. I had to keep loosening them… it was just too much work.

My arm and hands were hurting from all that twisting and I was kind of over the whole process.

The next time I attempt these again my hair will be dry. It will save time, edges and scalp. lol

Curls: Go-To Summer Style

SARA

Hey Y’all… Erica here! I usually do this style when the front of my hair does what it wants. It’s cute, simply and easy. I used Cantu Moisturizing Curl Activator to moisturize and olive oil to seal. To maintain this style I just two strand twist the back and tie it up with my satin scarf.

Simple Life Hacks

Simple Life Hackscurlscurveschic.com

 

We all  want to make our lives as simple as possible. With so many things going on in one day,  sometimes the simplest tasks can become overwhelming. So here are some life hacks that can make your day a little easier…

Stinky Garbage Disposal

So at some point the garbage disposal will have  odor from all the food that is chopped up in it. Here is a way to keep it smelling fresh and clean…Lemons. Yes, Lemons, cut them in half and run the garbage disposal and it will smell fresh for up to two weeks.

No More Makeup Highlight…OMG!!!!

Don’t fret you can use any  shimmer eye shadow of your choice from a palette with your brush and apply. But don’t forget to blend, blend, blend!!

Out of Color Corrector

Red lipstick can be used to get rid of dark under eye circles. You can use either a brush or apply the stick directly to the skin, blend out that red color. Then apply your concealer and voila…no more dark circles.

Clear Nail Polish

So for my ladies who wear stocking or panty holes clear nail polish will help stop the run. Apply it to the end of the run and it won’t go any further. Also, when wearing a button down shirt and one of the buttons looks like its about to come off, apply the polish to the thread and it won’t unravel.

Love the Candles But Not the Smoke

We  love candles and sometimes we don’t have a match, but we have dry spaghetti in the pantry. You can use the dry spaghetti as a match and light the candle. Also, when blowing out the candle the smoke can be irritating because it lingers long after the candle has been blown out. So use the top that came with the candle and put it on top of the lit candle and snuff out the flame and  the smoke stays trapped in. F.Y.I…when you go to open the candle next time to light it, it won’t smell like smoke just the candle.

We hope that these life hacks can help you just like they have helped us make our lives just a little bit easier! Have you tried any of these hacks? Let us know!!

Lessons Learned

 

 

 

 

Lessons Learned

 

 

Life is full of lessons that teach you to move forward and be our best selves.  Some lessons we learned as children and some we learned as  adults. Either way they made us in to the people we are today. Here are some that we have learned…

Keep God first and keep Him in everything you do

Life is what you make it

Love is pure and it should come from the heart

People will talk about you whether you are doing good or bad… they just have to have something to say

Work hard and smart

Be humble…it will take you further in life

Be yourself

Take pride in what you do and who you are

Don’t take people for granted

Show love to everyone because you never know what they are facing in their lives

Texas…

Texas

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to Texas. Some of them are quite interesting. Here they are…

No there are not tumble weeds just rolling down the streets.. In some places yes but not the city

Not all of us ride horse as transportation

Our accents are beautiful

Our Barbeque is the absolute best

We all don’t wear cowboys hats

Everything in here is big and that’s just how we like it!!

Much Love,

Friendship

Espresso Shot

Hey Ya’ll! We all have friends. Some we talk to daily and others not so much.  A friend is being kind, supportive and honest.  A real friend is going to be there for you no matter what  you are going through.  They are like our extended family and we share things with them that we don’t actually tell our own family members.  Friendships should be cherish and appreciated.  But there are those friendships that are toxic. They are based on superficial motives. You know the ones… they are only friends with you because of what you can give them. As soon as you can’t give them what they want they stop all communication. No call , text and they are to “busy” to hang out.  No one has time for that. As you get older the less friends you have the better. The “circle” gets smaller and that’s a good thing. Quality over quantity.

Much Love,
