Goals: May 2015

Friday, May 1, 2015




Goals!!! We all make them some of us keep them and some of us don't. Not that we don't intend to keep them we think about them and that's it. Personally, I think goals should be written down and kept some place where we can see them daily.

I've always been good at writing down my goals, but here lately everything has been getting in the way and I kinda stop writing them down and started keeping a mental note and that is when I stopped reaching for my goals. So, when Drea started her monthly goals link-up I knew this was my chance to get back on it as this will help me be more accountable for my goals.


MAY GOALS

  • Not to gain any weight
  • Engage more on twitter 
  • Not to spend $$ frivolously


HOW I WILL MEET THESE GOALS

  • Continue to workout 2-3 days a week and eat cleaner
  • Just do it! I'm going to jump in and start chatting
  • Do not go to the mall with my sister

I will let you know how this goes in June! 

What goals are you working towards this month?





Review: UBER

Monday, April 27, 2015

Hey guys! I just landed back in Atlanta from Detroit and I had to come on and tell you real quick about this new personal taxi service called UBER. 


I flew into Detroit this past Friday and decided to try UBER to transport me to Enterprise Rent-A-Car for my rental. I was skeptical at first because I didn't know what to expect or how it really worked. I also didn't know anyone personally who tried UBER either. So, I did some social media research for some reviews and was surprisingly pleased with what I read.


What is UBER? UBER connects riders with drivers within mins in various cities thru their mobile app 


Check out my quick process requesting my UBER driver:


Once a driver is requested...the driver name, license number and time of arrival is showm

A free ride! Yesss!!!!



Full receipt via email detailing my ride






PROS:
  • You can reach a personal driver within minutes via the UBER app
  • Payment is via credit card...as well as the tip
  • No $$ is involved between driver and rider...not even a tip (see above bullet)
  • My driver was very personable
  • You can select the size vehicle to suit your needs
  • Once contact is made with the driver, you can see from your phone the approximate time of arrival of your UBER driver
  • I received my receipt via email detailing my ride and fare
  • My first ride was FREE...yes free! UBER will give a code or you can search for a code for your first ride


CONS:

  • None

As  you can see overall I was pleased with UBER and it was extremely easy to use. I most definitely will use this service again. 

Have you tried UBER? If not, would you give them a try?

Natural Hair: My Spring/Summer Survival Kit

Monday, April 20, 2015

Yessss!!!!! Are y'all excited like me that it's spring time? So, that means summer is right around the corner. Although the winter was not bad here in Atlanta this year; I'm just glad that winter is over.

During the spring/summer I keep things simple with my hair. I let my natural curls be free as doing this require very little time from me and little to no manipulation. But all this would not be possible with out my spring/summer survival natural hair items.


My spring/summer survival kit


  1. Co-Wash: Suave Naturals. I wash my hair every 2-3 days with this conditioner and I love, love, love it. It provides so much slip that my hands just goes thru my thick coils with no problem at all. 
  2. Coconut Oil: LouAna. There is no particular reason why I chose this brand. I just liked the price and it gets the job done. Very moisturizing.
  3. Leave-In Conditioner: Kinky-Curly Knot Today. This leave-in works great on my curls. It keeps them poppin' for days.
  4. Spray bottle with water: This is for the in-between washes to add more moisture to the hair.
  5. Satin bonnet: This is a must, but I do forget to wear is most times. 










Do you have a spring/summer survival kit for your natural or relaxed hair? What are your must have items?
