To be a Nurse is to be an Angel

When I was born, I was diagnosed with spherocytosis which is a hereditary disease that affects the spleen and red blood cells.  In other words, my red blood cells are deformed and my spleen destroys them because they are not recognized as perfect cells.  My first crisis with this condition began at age ten when my whole entire immune system shut down.  I was in the hospital for a while and the nurses who took…

Beauty Blogger Favorite Heat Protectants

Beauty Blogger Favorite Heat Protectants

  [colored_box color="grey"]Affliate Links[/colored_box]     Since I'm transitioning, protecting my hair from heat damage is very very important. I've had heat damage before and so when half of your hair is damaged and straight and the other half is naturally curly it really makes you rethink things.  I usually try to keep to only using heat on my hair 2-3x's per week and when I do I always reach for a heat protectant.  Heat…
Nourishing the Educator Within Me.

Nourishing the Educator Within Me.

Education has always been a huge part of my life. My mother was a pre-school teacher so she raised me to love reading and writing. I was speaking in complete sentences at 2 years old and writing stories by the age of 5. I always loved school and did really well. Often in childhood, I would say that I wanted to be a teacher just like my mother.I think three significant things happened to me…

There aren't many Women of Color with Swatches of the Naked 3 palette up. Usually when the first previews…

Quiet as a Hair Dryer?? GlamAlley Q Zone Quiet Dryer Review

I've had my fair share of run in's with a hair dryer. Their hot, heavy, and noisy. I'm transitioning so I'm taking a lot of care in all aspects of my hair, including the blow drying process.

I recently received…
