My 2nd year loc-versary

Tuesday, July 19, 2011
Guess what y'all? Today is my second locversary *throws e-confetti*. Time surely flies! Wow. I didn't even take much pictures this month because I didn't realize July 19th was approaching so soon. I don't even know what to say. During this year's journey I had a slight thinning of the locs scare, no bueno, experimented with different products, and experimented with different styles. In regards to products, OMG. I fell in love with  Taliah Waajid Black Earth Products

Let me tell you. She is the truth. My hair never felt so lively before. I noticed that CVS carries a few of her products, but to find more of her collection it's best to go to a black hair store. If your hair needs some uplifting, some soul into it, I definitely recommend using Taliah Waajid or EO Products.
*Side note: These people do not, I repeat do NOT pay me to advertise for them. I'm simple a good Samaritan who loves to share time and money worthy products*

Anyway, EO which stands for essential oils is 100% organic and you can feel the difference in your hair. Very refreshing. I only use the Rosemary and Mint conditioner and it leaves my hair feeling soft, healthy, squeaky clean, and smelling good. I found it at TJ Maxx, and I've been using the same bottle for 5 months now.
I also use castor oil on my scalp and a little bit of "Nature's Blessing" pomade on my hair to keep it shiny.

Well. Like I said earlier, I didn't take a lot of pictures this time around. Been so busy preparing for the art festival in Philly and time seems to be super speedy this year. Gosh lol. Anyhow, I don't know what else to share other than pictures so enjoy!

P.S. I won't be doing monthly updates after this. I'll post different styles here and there but monthly. negative. I want to focus more on my art now and less on my loc journey so I figured to discontinue the monthly updates.
Anyway, I hope you check out the two products I've mentioned and stay inspired!

I have a thing for ink. I love drawing with ink. I also now have a thing for string gel. It's simple AMAZING. Anyhow, I just finished a painting that took about 5 hours. Here's the result.

"New vibration"

Hello all! I've been painting/creating a lot these past few weeks and of course wanted to share my work as well of show my creative process.

This piece is on a 18x24 flat canvas panel. I used acrylics, glass beads gel, and lumiere acrylic. I want to call this piece "New Vibration" because I believe we're in a stage where we're going through a social change. Metamorphosis.
Human Evolution...

We've all heard it. Once again the world is supposedly ending soon but this time we're following what the Mayans predicted. Although I agree that the Mayans were highly intelligent beings, I don't believe what the media is saying is the accurate interpretation. I believe that we're entering a period of conscious revolution. A time where people will stop being afraid of the unknown, leaving their cocoons, becoming free, and embracing unity and love. Funny enough, I started noticing a shift in human consciousness via social media and non-mainstream music. More and more people are becoming open minded and being in tuned with their Higher Self.

Higher Vibration....

I don't know what will happen in 2012, or how a social change will happen. But what I do know is that people are discovering themselves and recognizing their mind power and listening their hearts.

Focus on the positivity...
