For Roxanne on her 4th Birthday:
When I look at you and you look at me, I wonder what wonderful things you will be.
When you were too small to tell me hello, I knew you were someone I wanted to know.
For all of your tininess couldn’t disguise a heart so enormous...and wild...and wise.
I know you’ll be kind...and clever...and bold. And the bigger your heart, the more it will hold.
When the nights are black and the days are gray~ you’ll be brave and be bright, so no shadows can stay.
And then you will discover all there is to see...and become anybody that you’d like to be.
And then I’ll look at you and you’ll look at me...And I’ll love you, whoever you’ve grown up to be.
-Emily Winfield Martin
A quiet morning of catching up on emails and texts....I’m always behind.
After a sick kid and a weird week...the peace is nice. I guess fall is here? It doesn’t feel like it but, the pumpkin is a nice touch to try and fool me.
I don’t get excited for fall flavors. I think they’re nasty. #pumpkinspice Anything is nasty. I’m not #basic ...I’m #OG . I drink regular lattes that haven’t been violated by squash and cinnamon. ☕️
Let’s talk about @brazilianblowout ...
I get a lot of questions about this treatment.
Q: “Will my hair be straight?”
A: The BB is a hair smoothing treatment. Not a hair straightener. You’ll see curl reduction and frizz reduction but, your curl pattern will still be present.
Q: “Is it permanent?”
A: No. This treatment dissipates over time with washing. If maintained properly it lasts 3-4 months depending on how often you shampoo.
Q: “Will it damage my hair?”
A: No...it will actually help to heal some of the damage from previous chemical processes. The B.B. will also help reduce your styling time and protect your hair from further heat damage.
Q: “Why are they so expensive?”
A: The BB starts at around $250 and goes up depending on the amount of hair you have. This treatment is expensive because it is a daily time saver. It’s #highmaintenance to have #lowmaintenancehair .
I have this treatment and I’ll never be without it if I can help it. If you have unmanageable or uneven curls or frizz and you prefer to wear your hair blown out...this may be a viable option to solving your hair problems.
They’ve been together for 11 weeks straight...Literally every second of every day. They’re sick of each other and they fight but, they still find things to laugh about every day. There are still moments of kindness between them. They think of each other. They love each other. They’re #sisters .
