After a lot of research and watching numerous YouTube videos lol, I decided to start my loc journey. I have been thinking about locking my hair for a while but was nervous that if I didn’t want them anymore, I would have to cut them off.
BUT I found out that you DON’T have to cut off your locs, all you’d have to do is comb them out (which would be a lengthy process) and you’ll still have all of your hair!
I have been loc’d for about 2 months now and I’M LOVING IT! It’s so much easier to maintain than my natural curly coily hair.
I have a detailed video with my 6 week loc update that include pictures and what I’ve experienced in each week.
Here’s the link! Hope you get a chance to check it out! =)
When I get flowers as a gift, I always want them to last forever because they’re so beautiful! But then I thought maybe there is a way to make them last! So I did some research and found out that I can preserve the flowers by pressing them!
To press flowers, you need parchment or wax paper, fresh flowers, 1 piece of copy paper (optional) and a few heavy books.
Open a book that has a lot of pages and lay a large piece of parchment paper on a page in the book. Half of the paper should be laying flat on the book page and the other half should be loose.
Take 2-3 flowers (depending on the size of them) and lay them carefully onto the parchment paper that’s in the page of the book.
Then carefully fold the other half of the parchment paper over the flowers so that they are enclosed in the parchment paper. The flowers shouldn’t be touching any part of the book. Then close the book and lay other heavy books on top of it. This will allow the flowers to flatten.
Leave them for about 3 weeks or until the flowers dry out. I would say to check the flowers maybe once a week to see their progress. I pressed a lot of flowers but some of them didn’t survive because some of them were discolored or some of the petals came off of the flower and couldn’t be used.
Then you’ll take 2 picture frames, I used 8×10, and only use the glass part of the frames. I used a white piece of copy paper and placed it on the glass but this is optional. Then you’ll lay the pressed flowers delicately on the glass. After that, you will take the other glass frame and lay it over top of the flowers and secure the frame with those pieces that are around the perimeter of the frame.
And now the project is complete!
Check out my YouTube video to see the result of my pressed flowers! =)
Hey y’all! In my previous post, I mentioned that I’m working on some creative projects. Well I’m finally ready to share that with you!
I have decided to start my own YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!! I have been contemplating and thinking about it for a while. I wanted to start this channel to share with you all of the creative adventures that I get involved in!
I’m always getting into something new and exciting lol and I wanted to take you along this journey with me!
So I found a spot literally right up the street from my place so I don’t know if this is a good or a bad thing lol. I might end up going there like everyday haha!
The place is called King Fu Tea and they serve milk tea, slushies, and other assorted drinks that have many flavors and add ons!
I usually order a milk tea with the flavored bubbles and I love it so much! I’m already a big tea drinker so this is like heaven for me!
I have to say that I enjoy this version of bubble tea more than my first bubble tea. Mainly because the first time, it had the chewy tapioca pearls which I’m not a fan of. This tea has the bubbles that are flavorful and have a nice pop to them!
Have you tried bubble tea before? If so, what is your favorite combo?!
So my hubby and I don’t really make it a big deal to celebrate Valentine’s Day. But we figured that this is our first V Day living in a new city, new home, new everything pretty much lol. So we wanted to take advantage of this holiday and celebrate!
We decided last minute that we wanted to try and go bowling. Unfortunately every place was packed so we just decided to stay home lol. And yes we’re being safe out there for those who are wondering lol.
We ended up ordering dinner from a nice local restaurant and ate it at home while watching a movie. We loved all the food that we ordered so we are definitely ordering from them again!!! Here are a few pictures of what we ordered!
I also told hubby that all he has to get me is a bouquet of flowers, I didn’t want roses because I wanted to be different lol. So check out what he got for me!
Funny story is that I planned to make my own chocolate covered strawberries so when I saw his strawberries I was surprised, but I definitely wasn’t complaining! Haha! Here are how my strawberries turned out!
So I have to say that I enjoyed my V Day! Did you do anything for Valentine’s Day?!
