This is my first Taking Stock for 2017 – like I always say, I love doing these posts because they sort of put a time stamp on my life. I can always look back and see what was happening and how I was feeling at a certain point in my life. This version of taking stock will be quite pregnancy heavy, because it is one of the biggest things that is happening in my life right now and it is dominating every aspect of my life as I get closer to my due date.
It’s February! This is the month usually dedicated to all things about love, you can’t walk in a mall without seeing a heart, a teddy bear or something along those lines. I am not a big celebrator of Valentine’s Day, in fact it’s like another day to me. However, this year I did want to create a Valentine’s Day inspired lust list of items that fit the theme of the day (red, white, hearts) that I would love to own. So check out which items made me cut!
Trimming ones hair is one of those unfortunate things that need to happen if you want to maintain healthy ends and healthy looking hair. When I had relaxed hair, I hated trimming my hair because it equated to a loss in length. Since becoming natural, I have become the opposite, in the beginning of my natural hair journey, I was so scissor happy – luckily that has died down now. I recently trimmed my hair and I have decided to share the knowledge of the whole process.
I haven’t done one of these hair products haul and empties posts in a while because honestly the movements in my hair products stash haven’t been that interesting. I decided that in 2016 I will pin down my staple products, and I achieved that goal. Thus, this meant that I really didn’t buy that many new products and those that I did buy were mostly replacements. However, I have finally come to a point where I have finished quite a number of products that can constitute a meaty empties post. If you want to see which products I have finished, which I will be replacing and which new products I have bought…keep reading.
Choosing which colour lipstick to apply is one of the *tough* decisions that I face each morning when I am getting ready for work :). I own quite a number of lipsticks, I end up wearing the same colours over and over again, sigh! To combat this, I am doing a recon of my lipsticks per shade just so I can see what I have. This time around, I did my purple lipsticks, you can check out my collection of pink lipsticks here.
It’s a new year – well it has been for the past month now :). In this time of the year, I like to set yearly goals for my hair and a general theme of what I want to do with my hair for the year, and for 2017 it won’t be any different. Although, this coming year I will have limited control of what my hair does because of my pregnancy and possible post partum shedding that I might experience – I still want to set some goals that will help me go through the phase as smoothly as possible. Along with that, in this post I will go through a bit of how my hair has been since my last hair update.
