My Instaweek 10.21.12

Last week was a pretty tough one for me. Lots of ups & downs, disappointments and uncertainties. But
as time passes I'm learning the true meanings of patience and perserverance. When you believe in something, never give up on it. "You become a champion by fighting on more round." - James Corbett.

Cece's Curls Update: In natural hair news, my 2 year natural anniversary is coming up! I can't wait. I've been rocking a top knot for the past few days because I haven't had time to style or twist my hair since taking down my extensions. Can't wait to do a blow out and see my length since these TWA days. Lately I've been obsessed with two product lines -  Eden Bodyworks (the Peppermint Tea Tree Leave-In and Hair Oil are everything!) and Carol's Daughter Hair Milk 4 Piece Starter Kit (talk about everything you need for your curls in one place!)

New Shop Stop: UK retailer SuperTrash has officially made its US debut. They've set up shop in SoHo at a new boutique store off of Prince St (29 Prince St, to be exact) and it's chock full of super fab goodies from lead designer Olcay Gulsen. I popped by the launch party last week and had a ball. I even ran into Angela Simmons. Good times!

One Girl's Trash: I've been slacking on the thrifting front! A few weekends ago I went thrift shopping again for the first time since early summer and I felt like singing "Reunited, and it feel so goood." Top right is a picture of one of the handbags I scored. A leather satchel in mint condition - only $5.99. Sigh, how I love a good bargain.

Anyone else have a high-low week like me? Soundoff below!

  1. I am about ready to put in extensions... hair is dry and needs a serious rest. Arkansas is rough for a sista.

    1. Do it! Extensions are the best thing since PB & J. My hair grew so much while it was under wraps.

  2. I had a week where I just felt like I was spiriling out of control. I took the weekend to stay home and get my head together and recharge. This week although there are some challenges I feel renewed and full of faith that I will be okay.
