#Frotober Days 12-17


Okay, yeah, I know. I’ve been MIA for several days. I’ve also been delinquent!!! I owe you guys an NYCC post (sooo many pics!!), some guest posts, hairstories and, most of all, GOC Final Updates!!! I even shot video of that satin-braid out take down!! I’ll get it back together soon, but I’ve just been soooo burned out from work and 6 weeks of busy weekends, including Comic Con and a work convention this past Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. My mind is mush in the evening and it’s all I can do to wake up in time to get coffee, showered and dressed for work in the morning!

Anywho, I have been “flash” posting on Instagram every day as part of the#Frotober Photo Challenge. And, by virtue of that, I’ve also been posting on Facebook and Twitter. So, this one is for you guys who aren’t on those outlets or don’t subscribe and are interested in my “goings on;).” Now, remember, I posted these on IG on the actual days, so the captions were concurrent.


Day 12: OOTD (Friday, 10/12)

#OOTD for #NYCC2012!! Comfort and warmth were paramount! Got some new “combat” boots this week for the occasion!! Kinda diggin ’em! Saw Adam West, Burt Ward and Seth Green at panels today! They were all so awesome and so nice and appreciative of the fans! Can’t wait for the #Firefly panel tomorrow!! Hoping Joss and Nathan will make surprise guest appearances!!

10/18 Update: Yeah. I didn’t get into the Firefly panel. Got to the room at 3:45 to get in line for the 5:15 Walking Dead panel that preceded the 6:15 Firefly panel. The 5000 seat theatre was a full house and there were probably another 10000 sitting outside of the room in the holding area hoping to get into it. They told us that we weren’t getting in. And, guess what? Nathan Fillion made a surprise guest appearance. Can you read the bitterness in my words??

Day 13: Homemade (Treatments) (Saturday, 10/13)



Honey hair lightener? Tried it overnight on shed hair. Didn’t see a difference.
Maybe a 2nd or 3rd time is the charm?

Day 14: DVAM /Purple (Sunday, 10/14)

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Day 15: Red/Orange (Monday, 10/15)

#bazinga #TBBT #Sheldonrules

Day 16: My Town (Tuesday, 10/16)

Meh. This one is boring.

Day 17: Favorite Style (Wednesday, 10/17)

Ummm, yeah, that is ever-changing!! Lately, it’s been the #braidout, a #bigbun never fails me and I rocked the #TnC for close to 2 years. A couple of months from now, who knows? What I really FAVor is versatility!!  http://instagr.am/p/Q5nzrFM1Vq/

And that brings us to today, which I haven’t posted yet. I don’t even know the topic and it’s time to hit the shower!! So, I’ll have to share that one later!! In the interim, have a question for you guys!

What topics would you like me to cover? Any questions that you want me to try to answer? I’ve kind of been running dry lately! So suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)!!

Alright ladies, have a Terrific Thursday!

    • Thanks Katherine! I’m Hairscapades everywhere:)!!! Instagram, Twitter, Facebook … all Hairscapades. Even though I’m user Skillsgill on YouTube, my channel is Hairscapades too. Branding;)! LOL!!


    • Alwina, I think that you already saw my Comic Con post and yes, it was a great time! Totally enjoyed it, despite not being able to get into the Firefly panel:(. And thank you ma’am!!


  1. What ever you post I will read! LOL! I know it is a challenge finding thought provoking items – but so far so good!
    Even though my 4c coils are different from yours, I value your product reviews and tutorials. Whenever you get freebies, bring on the reviews. I’m now on the lookout for grocery store Hispanic HBA (oils & etc), saw some in my local Pathmark the other day, but I was a wee bit broke.
    Continue to post Natural hair sightings, natural hair in the media, and GOC participants. It’s helpful that you crossover to CurlyNikki, and I’m sure many of her faithful readers follow you when they’ve read her posts! Do you ever post on the “Mothership”, NaturallyCurly.com?
    Thanks to your article I know about Jaded Tresses, and must save up my money to make an appointment with Tameeka before my visit to Barbados.

    Keep up the good work!


    • Awwwwww, thank you lady. And gurrrrrrrllllllll … OMGosh, do you see this timing?!?!? Do you see I just posted an amazing flash sale and you can book with Tameeka?!?! It’s unprecedented from what I understand!! And no, never been on NC.com via a direct post … but, they did link back to Weusi’s interview with Chester Gregory one time!! LOL!! And I have some natural hair sitings coming up … from ComicCon!!! I didn’t take as many pictures as I wanted b/c I would have been chasing women down! But, I got a few who agreed to let me snap their pic for the blog:)!! Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. They really do help to motivate me:)!!


  2. Queen, we know you are busy and get tired sometimes. I don’t know how you post as consistently as you do! You are entitled to take as many breaks as you need. We want you healthy and rested. Did you wear your avatar hat to NYC CC? The hair is working! Some topic suggestions include the following: postpartum hair care, has you hair regimen (shampoo, conditioner) changed when your started graying, hair style challenges while working out, natural hairstyles for formal events, etc. Rock on!


    • Awwww Queen, thank you ma’am!! Yup, sure did wear my Appa hat:)!! Posted the pics yesterday. It was a HIT!! I should have had my friend make several to sell b/c people kept asking me if I got it there!! As to the topics, thank you for the suggestions!! I don’t know if I have enough to say on those topics to write a complete post on them (know nothing about post-partum hair care, nothing changed when I started greying as I’ve been greying since I was a teen;) and I did a post on Exercise Hair last year [I’ll link it below] and my PJ was have declined due to freebies, so no Curlbox subscription for me). But, all that being said, I can put on my research cap for some of these to see what info I can compile together and share:)!!

      Thank you for all the great suggestions, I’ll have to get to work:)!!!
