“I Peed My Pants a Little”



Okay, so this isn’t as funny as the life changing farts story (I literally thought I would die of asphyxiation I was laughing so hard at that one), but it’s still a great laugh. So, of course I had to share. This one was sent to me by my bestie, Yutonya. I’ll preface this by saying that I can empathize, but I can’t relate! I wear lightweight shapers because those heavy-duty things give me a stomach ache. I swear that they puncture kidneys!!

Saturday, the bf and I went to a friend’s wedding. Actually, we just went to the reception (I have to be honest, I didn’t even want to go) and had a great time.

What made it a great time? I looked great! Haha. Ok, not really. But I looked all nice and svelte. Smooth. One smooth operator.

What helped me achieve this new trim figure? Why, Spanx of course! You know, those spandex like apparatuses…apparati….uh…garments that take forever to climb into, but once you are in, they hold you in place like nobody’s business? Yeah, those.

Well, you know that’s not the end of the story. So, to find out how the rest of our writer’s evening went, click here. And … don’t pee your pants ;P!!

evalongoria_spanxHappy? Ho.

(Go to the link and read the rest of the story!!! THEN you’ll get it. LMBO!!!)

And, if you’re a fan of Spanx humor ;), here’s another: My Love/Hate Affair with Shapewear. But, be warned, the language isn’t as nice in this one. The pay-off is in the comments AFTER the post though! LOL!


Hair Journey: Relaxed to Natural … to Relaxed Again!

Okay, so obviously this is a natural hair blog. That is my focus. But, I know that I have texlaxed readers and also suspect that I may have some followers who are relaxed. And, I think that is GREAT! I am not a person who believes that every person’s walk has to be the same. I believe that everyone has the right to choose what journey is best for them. So, I don’t judge those who choose to wear their hair relaxed, texlaxed, natural but straight, weaved up or with extensions. If it’s healthy and flattering and you aren’t judging others for THEIR choices, DO YOU BOO!!

So, I say all of that as a preface to sharing this healthy hair journey video by a young woman who transitioned from relaxed to natural and BACK TO RELAXED. I came across this video a couple of weeks ago and was soooo impressed by the growth and health of her hair. It also proved something that I’ve suspected. Some women can experience great length retention and hair health with relaxers IF they use them and heat judiciously and practice the moisturizing, strengthening and protective techniques that so many of us only learn upon going natural.

Hope that you enjoy and appreciate the sharing.
