BET Honors


Just a quick post to share a couple pics from an event that I attended tonight as the site is starting to look like it’s a fitness blog instead of a hair blog!! It’s not, I promise!! LOL!!

Anywho, Wei and I attended the BET Honors and after party last night. The First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama, made a surprise guest appearance! She was absolutely STUNNING!! Some of the honorees were Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee and Mariah Carey. It was fun. And, at the after party, I stood RIGHT NEXT to Jill Scott!! But, I didn’t say anything … and no, didn’t get any pictures. Wei works a lot of things like this and is often around performers, so he tells me certain events aren’t for pictures. The after party happened to be one of them. Oh well.

As to the hair, I did a TnC set on Friday night after my henna treatment. The only thing that I used to style it was Kimmaytube leave-in made with 2 tbsp Giovanni Direct Leave-In, 2 tbsp aloe vera juice and 2 tsp jojoba oil. I set it in 6 twists, 1 on each side of my face and 4 in the back. I secured the roots with large doobie pins and then rolled the twists to the roots on pink flexis. I fell asleep for a couple of hours with the bonnet dryer on Friday night. Then, I allowed them to dry all day until I released them at about 6 pm on Saturday. Do you know the jokers in the back had the nerve to still be dampish *smh*? Oh well, I was still pleased with the results! My hair feels really good and soft! So, it looks like, despite the trauma of the 20 hour Take Down, all is well. In fact, I think my hair feels even better than before I got the twists!

Okay, gotta go! Here are a couple more pics!

This is the RaVon convertible dress that I got on ideeli for $49!!

  1. Awwww, thanks everybody!! Terysa, when I got the dress, I really debated whether I had the guts to wear it since it’s sooo much print and it’s a big print too. Like, I thought, “Is this too much?” But, when I put it on, I was sooooo pleased! Because, despite the animal print, it really is an elegant dress. I think the neutral colors really tone it down. And, $49?!?! Can’t beat it since you can wear it soooo many ways!!


  2. You look FABULOUS! When you first mentioned the Ideeli dress I checked the website but wasn’t sure how to work it, but I am sold! It looks great on you!


    • Thanks Viv! You know, I was the same way. But, I saw my sister work it and that’s when I went for it! I’ve been trying to get her to do a post on the dress as she is a mix master with it;)!! I’ll try to hit her up to do the post again. She sent me some pics, but they are blurry and I’d like some sharper images for a post on the dress.


    • Hey Mishie! Thank you! And yes … well, I’m using Dulhan, Jamila and Rajasthani Twilight. I used a frozen batch this time and I think it was 100g RT with 100g Dulhan.


  3. ETA – Please keep up the fitness tips! I’m relaxed but I’m a regular user of henna and a nutrition nut so I enjoy your blog. As soon as I get some good photos of my mother’s hair, I’ll submit them as a hair story.


  4. Thanks Jai and Erica!! And Mishie, okay, I will! I just wanted to make certain everyone knows that this is still a hair blog:). It’s just a hair blog with some health and fitness mixed into it! I definitely espouse the philosophy that a healthy body results in healthy hair and that means exercise and eating the right foods! So, that’s why I think there is a place for this stuff on a hair blog:).


  5. hold on … she didn’t talk about the abundance of great natural hair styles that were all around us! oh … maybe i was the only one looking … oppps … let me shut up!
