I did it again..

Oh yes, I colored once again, I couldn't help it.  In my past coloring experiences color hasn't take as well as I would have liked it too so I didn't do my best in applying the color to my roots in the middle or the back.  I also did not do a good job of putting color in the back. I opted for Texture and Tones Honey Blonde.

Honey Blonde 6C

I put the color in more so the front and put on a plastic cap.  After putting on my plastic cap I wrapped my hair in a towel and clipped it.  I had just bought my daughter Just Dance 2 for the Wii so we played for 30 minutes with my hair wrapped up.  I didn't think much of how the color would come out but when I took the towel off I was SHOCKED. 

Shea Moisture
 Before I got too excited I tried my new shampoo and deep conditioner made byShea Moisture. I love how it smells and makes my locks feel heavenly.  Its nice and creamy and feels like it can penetrate the lock.  It even got some of the debris out of the back of my locks, you know the lint that accumulates at the nape of your neck.  So I sat with the conditioner for about another 30 minutes and walaaaaaaa, this is what I ended up looking like.....

New Hair Color (Honey Blonde)
Oh yes ......I actually have honey blonde hair and I didn't have to pay out my wazooo for it!!!!! I know this picture isn't the best, because I need to take a picture of the back. Honestly (as I'm laughing) there is nothing new to see in the back, the color is still dark brown!

Pattern Change

An interesting question was posed to me the other day about my pattern change.  As you recall I changed from a Pattern 4 to a Pattern 3 sometime ago, you can read the reasoning here (just click, "here").  Now the question was very simple:
noticed you started with a 4 pattern and now use the 3. As a result, have you noticed a difference in the size or appearance of your locks?

I must say that I have not noticed a difference in the width of the lock at all and its now been close to a year and a half since I did change the pattern. I took a picture to see if there is a difference, you tell me?

Two locks in the left front side
 They actually look thinner at the root to me, but I know that's also due to them still being in the pattern and not locked yet so they haven't swelled.

Stylish Blogger Award

OMG!!!!! I received an email that I was nominated for the stylish blogger award. I have to say I'm so surprised that I was nominated, I can't say my blog is stylish but I will take it anyway :-). 

I just want to give a special thank you to Kreyola for nominating me, and she gave me a great compliment:

"I love her blog. I been following her for a while now and love all her sisterlocks updates."

Here's what you have to do nominee's

Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award

Share 7 things about yourself.

Contact these bloggers and tell them about it.

Now, wow 7 things about myself....that's a hard one, here goes nothing...

  • My friends call me Dancehall Queen.  As you know my parents are from Trinidad (mom) and Tobago (dad) so any soca music that I hear seems to get into my blood and I really just feel the music.  I LOVE TO PARTY!!!!
  • I LOVE to workout, its becoming one of my favorite things to do, of course its a huge thank you to having Sisterlocks and not having to worry about my hair afterwards. I started after having my daughter because I used to be a toothpick prior to having her.  Not as if I'm large now, but instead of just being slim, I want to look and feel fit and I am.  I have really gotten into it over the past three years, if I could just stop the cocktail consumption I would be better :-)
  • I have a beautiful daughter who just turned 7 on Saturday 4/30.  She is a joy, wakes up smiling, goes to sleep smiling and is so smart (who doesn't say that about their own child), but hey that's what everyone tells me :-) 
  • I have an undergrad degree majored in Finance and minor in Economics, I also have a MBA in Accounting. I've used all of that to earn a living working with Hedge Funds first as a Manager and now I work in an analyst role.   
  • I am anti-social when I just meet people, unless I'm in the mood to be social.  However, once I get to talking I'm a talker and can dominate a conversation and room.  My mood normally comes more often than not to be a social butterfly:-) that doesn't sound like a good thing.
  • As you can tell I take a lot of pictures of my face.  This all has to do with trying to figure out what styles work for me, what makeup works and doesn't work.  And this also has to do with having a blackberry.  Prior to blackberry with the camera I hardly took pictures from the phone.  I take a lot of pictures with my camera, never download them so I'm the only person who sees the events I have gone too :-).
  • I am addicted to my blackberry, I really cannot leave home with out it.  Nor can I go longer than 10 minutes without looking at it even when I have all the notifications on to let me know I have received a message.  Its addicting, I also have an Iphone because I wanted to test out all the clever applications they have.  I got tired of paying two bills so now my Iphone has turned into an Itouch :-), but trust me I'm debating giving my blackberry up full time for the Iphone 4. 
Since the blogger award has been going around for some time the ladies who have already received it as well as passed this along are the same ladies I would nominate such as Dewdrop, Saabira, and Blaqkofi I always find myself going to there blogs to read up on things I'm questioning.  In addition, I have to give a great shout to my girls, we all started the journey together Bajan Lily, Cshan, and Kay Exquisite.

Thanks to all my fellow bloggers as well as followers.  I truly nominate you all, because we all deserve it!
