Showing posts from December, 2015


Like many, I've been guilty in the past of setting new year's resolutions and not fulfilling them. So, I'm not going to call it that any longer. I do, however, have some goals, which are more general.

Better my health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Take time to enjoy the people, hobbies and things I love.
Continue to make time for myself.
Get back to writing.
Enjoy life.

Initially I had included furthering my career, in this list, but for me, that goes without saying. I have always been on top of my professional aspirations, but I tend to lose sight of me. That's the main thing I need to work on.

I wish everyone the best in the new year and hope you all enjoy your holidays thoroughly. Be safe!

Use up the Stash: Update #12 (Mini Reviews Included)

Every time I used it, it created a mess in my hair. It's too light to hold my hair on its own, but the Gelo cannot be layered with any other product! Whenever I tried to layer this with my leave-in and oil, it would tur…

Why the Hiatus...Again?

This keeps happening lately, huh? Well, this year has been an interesting experience to say the least. I've accomplished more than I than I thought I would and lost more than I could have imagined. Kinks of Nature has undoubtedly been reflective of my highs and lows throughout the year. There were times I just lose the motivation, and interest, in blogging.

For 2016, I am going to make Kinks of Nature more than a natural hair blog. That way, even when I've lost interest in my hair, there'll still be tidbits I can post. That was my intention when I initially started the blog. It's not just hair, it's kinks of nature! All of my little quirks and idiosyncrasies in one place.

I'm hoping I can stick to this, and update the blog more regularly in the new year. However, if I'm able to accomplish some of my other goals, my time will be even more limited. My IG and Facebook pages are usually the most up-to-date. My YouTube, I only use for sharing videos I liked and/…
