4 Years, 5 Months Loc Journey Update: Length Check


Hey guys!  I'm back with another loc journey / dreadlocks journey update.  I haven't done a length check in a while; my latest measurement was in November 2016.  I spent about a month experimenting with a more earthy look fashion wise, and I'm not a fan of what I came up with.  Instead of scrapping all the photos, I decided to at least share my hair styles from each outfit.

I kept my hair simple, wearing a headband created with a long brown scarf and added a creme and brown flower for flare.  I wore one of my favorite pair of gold hoop earrings with a woven design around the hoop and my usual assortment of stud / post earrings and cartilage hoop earring.  I also wore my go to stacked rings as well.


I've been itching to color my locs again, even though I typically only color my locs once a year to celebrate my loc anniversary.  The month of March is almost here, and I only have to wait until June; I think I can make it.  I'm proud of my hair growth and length retention thus far; waiting to color my hair each year is a part of my maintenance routine to retain as much length as possible, along with low manipulation hair styles.  After viewing these photos again, I'm almost sure that I can wait. πŸ˜‰

Thanks so much for reading!  See you in my next post. ♥

New Year's Eve Party Looks: Day to Night


It's almost 2017!  To celebrate the upcoming new year, I created two (2) New Year's Eve party outfit ideas.  This first outfit is a daytime look and the second outfit is a night look.  I love wearing pants that make a statement, so a metallic gold pair of pants was perfect, paired with a funky white top and navy blue boots with buckle details.

Chicago Bulls 23 Sweatshirt & Wedge Sneakers | Casual Fall OOTD

Since the Chicago Bulls have an away game today...


Before it suddenly got cold, I wore one of my favorite Christmas gifts from last year:  my "Street Bulls" sweatshirt!  It is very comfortable and warm, paired with a faux leather jacket and it kept me in a great mood while running errands.  I like to pair skinny jeans with wedge shoes in general, but my favorite has to be wedge high top sneakers.  I really need to add more pairs to my shoe collection very soon!


I wore my usual assortment of rings on almost every finger and my Chicago Bulls drop / dangle earrings (a Birthday gift from my mom).  I've been wearing my ear cuffs on the center of my ear instead of the top; I've always wanted a piercing in that spot but until then, the cuff will suffice. πŸ˜„  Also, I got my nose pierced almost three months ago!  Yay!


The design on this top is so cool!

I've had this pair of Sketchers for years, but I don't wear them very often.  I usually save them for cute casual outfits.


I styled my hair in a really quick half updo, using a quarter of my locs in the front to create somewhat of a french roll or hump.  I used two locs from my crown to tie the hump in place, instead of bobby pins or straight pins.


My mom picked out a pair of sunglasses / sunshades for me when we were shopping in Target.  I absolutely love them.  Target has the cutest clothing, shoes and accessories!


See you in my next post and thanks for reading! ♥

πŸ€ Hopefully, the Bulls will win tonight against the Nuggets. πŸ€
