Where am I?

I never make personal post on Kinks of Nature, but this is certainly an exception and hopefully a motivation for others.

I am now in London! It was a long and hard road getting here, but I'm finally doing it. Two years ago I said I would do it, and now I'm here. On Monday, I'll be beginning my postgraduate education at one of the best universities. I'm extremely thankful for the opportunity and ready to embark on this journey.

Last year after not having adequate funding, I deferred all of my acceptances and even reapplied to a few schools, one of which I am now attending. In all honesty, I didn't have my hopes or any expectations for this year. Last year was too much of a blow!

A couple months ago, literally 20 minutes before my loan appointment to attend another university, I received an email informing me that I had received a full scholarship for a different university, the one I am now officially attending! That moment of joy...words cannot describe.

Review: Original Moxie Hair Bling

I don't typically review butters and oils because for the most part, they do the same thing, seal, some more effectively than others. What makes Hair Bling noteworthy is that it really imparts a shine that I don't get with other butters and oils. Well, I could if wanted my hair to be a greasy mess, but I don't so I just stick with Hair Bling.

Product Claims: This product is solid gold - literally! Hair Bling™ lives up to its name, with an ultra-lux blend of oils, butters and waxes that deliver high shine along with amazing softness and subtle hold. Mango Butter provides long-lasting moisture and protects hair from UV radiation. Tucuma Butter is exceptionally high in Vitamin A and helps to soften and strengthen dry, course hair. Everyone needs a little Bling!

Three Years, and I Forgot...Again

Every year without fail, I forget that I my "natural hair anniversary," as some call it. It's not exactly a major milestone for me; I'm not thrilled with my hair this year and had a few setbacks.

A disastrous "professional" trim that left patches of breakage...

Mid-strand splits coming out of nowhere...

Single-strand knots popping up everywhere...

I'm just not feeling it!

True, my hair is the longest it's ever been, which is nice, but this ish is annoying! I'm going to eventually trim about 2 inches to remove the splits and knots. I need to do protein treatments more regularly. I started using henna again, but it's such a long process that I don't have the time to do it as often as I'd like.

I predict...Havana twists in the near future!
