When I first transitioned, I had not clue what I was doing so I relied heavily on blogs & YouTube videos for advice. I tried EVERY & ANY tutorial advice much to my disappointment. Once such experiment was an Aloe Vera & Water mixture which left my hair drier than chips.
Last Sunday, I felt idle so I decided to GoogleAloe Vera and found that it can be used as a conditioner thanks to a Wikihowpage.
So I got a knife, headed to my garden & got harvesting :)!
It has been awhile since I did a DIY & I had so much fun with this one. This DIY was inspired by Sharifa Creates A Little Box of Hope post & Tishan Lee’spresentation at the We Inspire Women Workshop (Part 1, Part 2).
I had a gratitude journal before but unfortunately life happened & I didn’t really follow through with it. I think the main reason I fell off was because it was a book & it ended up amongst all my other books until one day it was eventually forgotten.
After reading Sharifa’sblog post though it dawned on me that writing down at least one thing I’m grateful for & storing it in a jar or box may be the best way for me to keep a gratitude journal.
I had so much fun making it & I am elated to share it so here we go!
I got inspired to do this DIY from Instagram. I was looking through Carnival pictures and came across a very creative young lady who transformed her T-shirt into a romper. So I thought maybe I could experiment with the idea but instead of a romper, I made a body suit from a T-shirt!
On Saturday, May 24, 2014, my service club hosted a fundraising party called “EVOKE”. This was the fourth staging of the event and the second staging under the name “EVOKE”. This year’s theme was the “Braids N Bumpa.”
Easter time is party season in Jamaica. Usually I stay home but this year I decided to check out one party (only because Sizzlawas performing)….Frenchbook! I opted for a very casual look because I thought it was more ‘live music appropriate” & it was also a beach party, so my look fit that too.
