Blogger Box Swap Party


About a month ago my girl Mo of Curls and Mo tagged me in a tweet about a Blogger Box Swap Party sign up happening over on Keep Sitting Pretty and Melissa Chanel. After clicking the link, I thought “wow what a fun way to mix & mingle with other bloggers and score some cool stuff too!” So I immediately signed up! A few weeks later I got an email from Melissa of Melissa Channel stating that I was chosen as one of the bloggers…I was super excited! This was going to be my first Blogger Box Swap and I couldn’t wait to find out who I was paired up with.

Well about week after receiving my confirmation email, I received an email from Kelly of Keep Sitting Pretty with my Blogger Box Swap buddy’s information. And guess who I paired with??? My girl Mo…I laughed because the entire time I was thinking who coincidental and funny it would be if we had gotten paired up. One, we already know each other via social media and emails. Two, we have been working together for several months as natural hair staff writers for Longing4Length. And three, I like to think of her as one of my virtual BFF’s (if there is even such a term) because she has been super supportive since we virtually met months ago through Bloggers Like Me. Needless to say I was thrilled to be paired with Mo! I immediately started working on her box and you can check out what I sent her here.

I was so excited when I my box from Mo came in the mail, y’all know I opened it immediately! She sent me some awesome goodies…see for yourself.

Can you say MANICure Monday...Mo good looking out!

I love all of the goodies that Mo sent. But if you have been following my blog for a while then you know how much I love Shea Moisture products and I have been dying to try out their body scrubs…so those would have to be my favs!

I would like to thank Kelly and Melissa for hosting such an awesome Blogger Box Swap Party. I had so much fun participating. And thanks Mo for sending me all the great goodies; I can’t wait to try them all out!

Have you tried any of the products in the box I got from Mo?

The Twist Out…Revisited

Since I recently got rid of those “ratchet” ends (mentioned here) my hair has been on point and my curls have been poppin’! I don’t mean to sound like I’m bragging or anything but my naturalistas out there can relate…when your hair is doing it you can’t help but to feel good! Lol. Anyway, if you follow my blog then you know that my favorite style is the braid out. I never had much luck with twist outs simply because my hair just wouldn’t stay twisted…like I said my ends were awful; they suffered from a bit of heat and color damage. However I decided that I would give the style another go. Check out the results of the twist out….revisited!

My night time look…don’t judge me!

Twist up close.

Side view – Day 1 of twist out.

Day three of my twist out.

The twist out was done on freshly washed and conditioned hair, I used the Shea Moisture Organic Shea Butter Curl & Shine Shampoo and a killer combo of leftover conditioners mixed with sunflower seed oil. To achieve the style I used my favorite…Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and I retwisted my hair every other night.

So what do y’all think of the twist out revisited? I’m thinking that this may be my new fav style…twist are so much easier to do than braids (lol).

Have you revisited any styles lately?
