Farewell :'(

For anyone who still reads this blog, I would like to say a big thank you for your support thus far.

Z and I started this blog in 2008 when we were still super excited about being natural. Over the years however, life got in the way. We've all changed a lot since 2008 and life has moved on.

In the past year, there have been some major changes in my personal life. I got married to my incredible man and am now the mother of a beautiful baby girl. I've had little to no time for hair related stuff and I know that my hair will be taking a back seat for the foreseeable future. 

While I still love my hair and will always be natural, I am no longer passionate about spreading the word. So this will be the last time I post here...

 I will be leaving the blog up so feel free to browse through the nearly six years of information we have in our archives. I will continue to write about other stuff on my blog Chaotic Order, so feel free to follow that if you are interested. I haven't decided what my focus will be but I'm guessing there will be a lot of mum stuff.

So thank you all for growing with us and I wish you all the best in your loves, lives, careers and everything else. 

Lots and lots of gratitude and love!

Mrs Fizzy xx

The Goings on at the WITJ Event

Hey y'all!

Here's a quick recap of the event.

There were a lot of people and lots of beautiful natural hair everywhere. There was no shortage of vendors either, a product junkie's dream! The actual program of events started fairly late and I was a bit disappointed that some of the perks promised to the people who purchased VIP passes were unavailable (and no prior notice was given) but overall it was a good show.

It was hosted by Annalise Dayes from America's next top model. She had gorgeous hair and a bubbly, vibrant personality. She did a good job hosting. There was a live big chop, product and hairstyle demos and lots of stands to purchase accessories and products from.

The swag bag I received had a couple of full sized products in it and in addition, I purchased a few things from Entwine Couture. I've been dying to try their products but they aren't easy to find in the UK so I was very pleased.

Next, I went crazy over the accessories and picked up a few from Super Funky Me and Meen Clothing. I just love earrings. The funkier the better. I also picked up this handmade fabric flower but I can't remember the name of the stand I got it from.

I also bumped into the lovely Nibi of the Kinky Apothecary.

I left early so I didn't get to catch the whole show, but I was pleased to find out a few days later that I'd won a raffle for a Pure Bliss Cleanse! I'm not able to undertake a detox at the moment so my husband will be doing this and writing a review at some point.

So that's my recap. Later y'all!

Hello Everyone!

Hello everyone! I know, I know... Where have I been? Well all in good time.

I'm currently on my way to London for the Woman in the Jungle natural hair and beauty show. I will be back later in the week with pictures and stories. Can't wait! If you're there and you see me, do come over and say hi :)

Chai. I remember the days when we used to post all day every day. Life has been interfering, other pursuits, the 9-5 struggle. I'd apologize for the lack of posts but we all know it's a gamble at this point. We love you all deeply and appreciate your seemingly endless patience with this erratic posting schedule.

Nothing has been happening with Poofy, which is why I can't seem to come up with anything to say. I'm growing her out again because I got bored with short hair, so it's just been a TWA, nothing fancy. Still the same old scalp issues, the most dramatic thing that happened was that my hair supply store ran out of the shampoo I've been using for ten years. So I'm managing Head and Shoulders for now until their stock fixes its life and choices, and going to try yarn braids again in the fall. That's about it #exciting.

Yarn braids like the little sis

Fizz has been uber busy in Ireland, otherwise she'd be filling in for my irresponsible absences haha. If you'd like to know what else I've been up to, check out my new website HERE or stalk me lovingly on Facebook or Twitter. In the meantime, I'll step up more with posts and keep wondering why I'm still getting notifications of people commenting on the sisterlocks post...#confused

New Cut, New Color

I just got back from a week in Mexico where I tried my best to get as brown as I could. Somewhere during my last day, I decided that I was tired of my haircut and wanted to lower the top. I could have waited to get back to Brooklyn the next day and have my barber do it, but no, that wouldn't do. Fizz was totally against me randomly chopping off my own hair, but I dipped next door and borrowed a pair of scissors from the girl next door, then spent the next hour or two snipping away.

I forget how long my head is. It's like an egg, it's got this rising dome on top.

Anyway, I wasn't too keen on the cut but I figured it would grow out. When I got back to Brooklyn, it occurred to me that now was really the best time to dye my hair. I couldn't go too out there because I didn't want to shock everyone at my job by showing up with platinum hair. Sigh. If only.

A box of hair dye later and some messiness in my bathroom, and I had a new hair color. Which I love!! My skin is just browned enough and when I pair it with a bright lipstick, it's just fabulousness all around.

The curls at the back are longer because my head is actually flat and I don't like that, so I create an illusion with longer hair at the back. Don't judge me. 

What's your summer hair color?
