xoxo Music & Soul

Lately I have been listening to all the throw backs my heart can handle. I started this year on
such a good note, and even though am facing so much in my life right now, I couldn't be
happier. It's really weird to explain where it's coming from, I feel like it will all be okay, am
looking forward to all the joys 2012 has to offer. I want to share my play list with you guys
hope you all enjoy.

  • En Vogue- Don't Let Go
  • Lucy Pearl- Dance Tonight
  • Janet Jackson- That's the Way Love Goes, Again, I get so lonely
  • Toni Braxton- You're Makin me High, Unbreak My Heart, Let it flow
  • Omarion; Ice Box, Touch
  • Jon B- Don't Talk
  • Ideal- Whatever
  • Next-Too Close,Wifey
  • Ruff Endz-No More
  • 112-Dance With Me, 

And the list goes on and on...Really do you remember when music literally had you closing your
eyes with your hands in the air as you snapped your fingers. That's how some of these songs
make me feel...What are some of your favourite throwbacks?

10 Simple Ways to spice up your Relationship

10 Simple Ways to spice up your Relationship

Has it been a long time since
you have done anything
romantic in your relationship?

As a woman waiting for a man
to plan a romantic night maybe
a very long time.

I have always taken it upon myself
to plan a romantic night whenever
I feel necessary.

Fortunately for me, I have a
partner who believes that a
little romance everyday or
thoughtfulness goes a long way.

I find that relationship are always going to need more than just the day to day, it takes so much time
and effort to build the relationship you dream of. In every relationship one may be better at just buying
gifts and the other at planning a romantic night, the easiest thing to do, is to 'do' so your partner can
learn along with you on planning a romantic night. So maybe next time when you walk through those
doors you will have that romantic night we all wish for.


Natural Way to Whiten your teeth

Lately I have been so concerned about my teeth. I am use to have pearly whites and notice that
they had gotten a little darker in shade. Naturally I wanted to get rid of it, but knew that spending
loads of money at the dentist was out of the picture for me. I decided to do a few quick follow-ups
on research I had done a few years ago on baking soda.

It has been a few days I can already notice the difference in my teeth.

How to use?

It is quite simple, brush your teeth with baking soda as you would with tooth paste.
*put a tiny bit of toothpaste, water and baking soda into a cup and mix
*Use the paste to brush your teeth for about two minutes

Try not to do this too often, it is recommended that it is done twice a week until you have reached
the results you desire. Once you have nice white teeth, try doing this method once a month or two.

What Happens if it is done too often?

Baking soda will wear down the enamel in your teeth if it is done too often, and make your mouth more susceptible to cavities one sources says. I have many sources that say other wise some claim that
baking soda prevents cavities by eliminating the bacteria existent in our mouths when use accordingly.
I will say if you are going to use baking soda use it at your own discretion. There are always good and
bad in anything you use.

Update on My Natural Hair Journey

This was back in late September of 2010, I believe between September and October was the 
last time I cut off any damaged ends. My hait was about 2-3inches. I have always been natural 
but never really knew what to use or how to care for my hair. I was introduce to youtube by 
a friend and never looked back. I have always loved hair, working in salons, doing shows. 
I learned at an early age I had to do my own hair, besides I had no one else to do it.
I learned to braid, do weaves, twists, wigs and everything in between. 
I can braid, weave, or do any style just by looking at it, am a very creative 
person so it only comes naturally. The only thing I never learned that was 
in between the styling...I had to learn to take care of my hair. I am glad I am 
on this Natural Healthy Hair Journey.
To date I am please with my journey and 1 year and 3months later. 
Here is where I am today...

Two months before Jan 1st
Jan 1, 2012
You can also check out my journey in my page called: MY HAIR CHALLENGE 2012
My goal is to hit bra strap length and have healthy hair. I will discuss my regimen and what I 
done to see the progress I have seen! I will also
put together a year update on pics, styles and growth

Until Monday have a wonderful weekend


Let's start the year right....Happy 2012

Let's start 2012 in a great way. I am so happy to start a new year in 2012. I love all the memories
of 2011 but am ready for 2012 to make new ones. It was such a hard, heart breaking memorable year for me. I went through so much in one year, I never thought I could make it through. I am just glad
I had this blog to take my mind off things from time to time. Thank you all for your time, continuing to
read and follow my journey. Let's start the year right.

I know what helps me through anything is music and writing so what is a better way to start the
year then music. This first artist I was introduce to by a close friend and instantly fell in love with
him. I think his music is so real, truthful and simply soulful. Hope you enjoy him as much as I do.
