Déjà Vu: Cute Protective Updo


Last summer, I saw this Lilith Moon style tutorial video and attempted the style on an old TnC that had been stretched from bunning.

Well, it didn’t work out too well. I couldn’t keep the headband from popping off of my head and my ends seemed a little too tangled to make the style look like it was studied messy instead of a plain old, unintentional bird’s nest!! LOL! That’s why a picture of it never saw the light of day.

However, a few minutes ago, I came across a picture of a similar style on Naptural85’s Facebook page that was accompanied with a link to her video tutorial!

I knew that this style could be accomplished on natural hair:)!! If I ever get around to washing and setting my hair today (got a Vatika oil/EVOO pre-poo in now), maybe I’ll give this the ol’ college try again this week.


Project Scale Down: Days 18 & 19


Blah … got 10 minutes in really late the last two nights … like, after 11 pm and just got finished before midnight tonight. Really need to exercise and get to bed earlier. On another note, saw Red Tails tonight. It was pretty decent. I support it for the same reason I support comic book movies. Even if a movie is bad, mediocre or just okay, I want to show Hollywood that there is an audience so that they’ll keep making the genre. Hopefully, the more they make, the better they’ll get. If those of us who want these types of movies don’t support them, we’ll prove the Hollywood execs right and we’ll never get those truly brilliant stories.

Day 18:

  • 10 minute Abs of Steel routine. 

Day 19:

  • 12 minute Lauren Brooks Full Body Blast Kettlebell intervals routine.
