Natural Hair: Straight to Curly with no Heat Damage!

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

I love natural hair! It's so versatile. You can almost create any style your heart desire. Although, I wear my hair in its curly state 80% of the time, I like to switch it up and have it straighten at times.

Natural Curls


Straightened :)

A few weeks back I decided to straighten my hair and after a few days it was time to return the curls, using my favorite hair products for proper maintenance and styling.

Maintenance products used to restore my curls

Styler and Moisturizer used to hold curls together

Upon washing my hair, I wasn't worried about any heat damage to my hair. During this time I used the flat irons only twice.

And heat damage!

Back to curls, back to life!

How do you protect your natural hair while styling?

Review: My stay at LaQuinta Inn & Suites

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Let me tell you...why have I been sleeping on LaQuinta Inn & Suites? I first stayed at this hotel while traveling on business about a month ago for work. When I was looking for lodging this hotel appeared in our search. I will say I was skeptical at first, because I have never heard anyone mentioned ever staying at LaQuinta Inn & Suites, but because it was within me and my co-worker budget, we decided to give it a try and boy are we glad we did. Fast Forward to a few weeks back....

I was home visiting in Michigan and decided I would stay at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites again during this visit. Upon check-in at the Detroit Metro Airport location, I was greeted by Trina, the front desk clerk, who was very courteous. Check-in was speedy and I was in my room in no time. 

Entrance of the hotel

I selected the Premium Room with a King Size Bed, Microwave, Refrigerator and Premium Cable Channels on Direct TV. 

I liked the mirror in room.

I loved the shower stall

The room was cozy, the bed slept comfortably to where I slept past 8am(and that's late for me) most of my stay there. I really liked the bathroom shower, because it was glass instead of a shower curtain and there was no tub-perfect! 

Now for the Pros & Cons...

Reasonable Priced
Modern Decor
Complimentary Continental Breakfast Daily
Complimentary Coffee and Fruit Bar 24hrs
Personable Staff
Free, No Hassel Wi-Fi
Fitness Center

Premium Cable Service did not come with the BRAVO channel
TV could of been a little larger maybe like an 40" instead of 32"

Not having BRAVO as a channel on the TV was a bummer, as I wanted to watch the Housewives of Atlanta, but its not a deal breaker. I will most definitely be a guest at this hotel again.

If you are looking for an hotel that is reasonable in price and friendly staff...LaQuinta Inn & Suites is your place to stay.  You can check them out here
