Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday!

Go over and subscribe to my new page at http://www.nettafied.com

It is 6:53am on Thursday morning and it is now 54 degrees, when yesterday was 72. Too much of this kind of weather can drive anyone crazy. I love cold weather because it gives me the okay to throw some thick leggings on with boots under a pea coat and scarf and still look somewhat fashionable. I just wish our cold weather were more consistent.

This week I am thankful for the warm weather we have had lately. The weather in NC is far from normal. It can go from 40 degrees one day to 72 the next. This week we actually had two beautiful, sunny days! Yes, I am very excited about that lol. I am over winter at the moment and can not wait for the first day of spring. I have it marked on my calendar, although around these parts it doesn’t exactly mean that the weather will be warm, still I am hoping for the best.

This spring, I am looking forward to quite a few things:

  1. Gardening, I am obsessed with trying to not only master planting, but growing my own vegetables. So there will be a lot of YouTube watching in the near future.
  2. My usual park runs! I love my treadmill, but I really don’t use it the way I should. The reason, I need fresh air! My treadmill is crammed in a corner of a guest bedroom with the view of a wall. It only does the job for so long. The park in the spring is great, it’s not too hot, the air is crisp in the morning and it provides me with scenery that isn’t a wall. There are two seasons I love the most and that is fall and spring. You get the best weather in both. Not too hot or cold, the leaves changing colors in the fall are beautiful, the sun shining just right in the spring is the perfect warmth. Yup I am reminiscing. It is definitely time for spring.
  3. Last but not least, my baby pie’s birthday! On May 4 my son will be 1 years old. It is so hard to believe my little 7 pound baby will be turning one in two months. He is growing so fast, I was warned to be ready for the day I turned around and he is a toddler. My heart sank just a little yesterday as I was leaving a store and the sales clerk asked how old Ty is. I accidentally said 9 months and had to correct myself. “10 months, he is 10 months today.” My little baby pie is growing up and somehow I wish I could slow him down just a little.

What are you all thankful for this Thursday? Leave it below if you would like to share.

Have a happy Thursday and Stay Inspired!

Natural Hair Banding Method

Hey Hey!

I have used the banding method lately to stretch and dry my hair. I love it! My curls are smoother (provided I do not separate too much and cause frizz), the length of my hair is longer and I found that my halo braid is so much easier to put in after using the banding method.

I was even able to wear different styles longer  Tuesday through Saturday. See below!

Tuesday Hair I re twisted Monday night and the curls came out what I like to call "wild child" but I liked it, so I rocked it.

Wednesday Hair Yes, the curly puff is back by hump day but I added a little something new in the front by letting my bang out. My hair still had lots of volume and length.

Saturday and Sunday Hair I decided to go with my braided halo for the weekend. Because my hair was stretched previously, this made the halo braid easier to attempt.

 Sunday is wash day for me so the halo braid made detangling super easy.

Caring for your skin naturally

 

 

Hey Hey!

I thought I would do a skincare video and share all of my tips on natural things you can can do to promote healthier skin. I have had eczema for some time now and I spent some time trying out over the counter products that did nothing but irritate it further. I finally feel confident enough to say that these simple natural tips will help keep skin healthy and glowing.

Bantu knot out

 

 

Hey Hey!

I decided to attempt a Bantu Knot style on my hair. It was not a complete fail because the curls came out better than I thought it would after discovering my hair was still a little damp. One thing I have learned is Bantu knots need longer than overnight to dry, at least for me. I decided to post it anyway. I am not ashamed to say I need some help with this style, so with that being said, can anyone suggest a different technique so that my curls come out more defined? Leave suggestions and comments below. I welcome any and all advice. I want to attempt it again but I think I could use some pointers first lol. I hope everyone’s new year is starting off great! Check out the video below!

DIY Lipstick

 

 

Hey Hey!

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?! My son and I caught husbys cold, but other than that all was well my way. I have successfully made my own lipstick or maybe I should call it lip gloss. Either way I made it and will be making more. You shouldn’t have to buy anything for this DIY. I bought some container from Target for 1.52 just to store my lipstick in but everything else was pulled from my makeup bag. Check it out below!

Items Used

  • Vaseline
  • Eye Shadow
  • Blush
  • Utensil to stir with
  • container to mix ingredients

DIY Lipstick

This turned out to be both fun and useful. I always end up throwing out eye shadow  or blush that I buy and don’t use for a while. This DIY gives me the ability to turn it into a lipstick and customize the colors I want. I urge you to give it a try if you have some leftover makeup laying around. I hope you guys enjoyed! Stay Inspired!
