Since I packed up my stuff and moved from my childhood home of over 20 years, I thought that I would start this blog to allow all the family and friends that I left behind to keep up with my life. As everyone knows, I ran away for opportunity in Las Vegas. Opportunities that still remain fuzzy at the moment, but one opportunity is quite clear, even if he happens to be short and absolutely adorable. Being apart of my nephew's life was probably the biggest draw.
Now I'm here in the middle of July where the temperatures are normally over 100 degrees. Crazy I know, but yay for no more insane blizzards. This is kind of why I decided to entitle the blog "Hot Pursuit." One, I'm in a hot desert climate, and two, it's a shout out to one of my favorite John Cusak 80's films. Nothing says me like an 80's movie. This blog is to keep you informed of all my new discoveries and mishaps as I continue down the path fate dropped me on.
Right now I'm working on employment. That is the main key in obtaining my other goal of an apartment. Not that I'm not enjoying living with my nephew and sister-in-law. We get along very well, so well, I think my brother is in trouble when he returns home. Lol! I do want to finally have a place to call my own. I think it's long over due. In order to accomplish this, I'll need money, so employment is kind of key. I've had a couple of interviews, and I have been picky about where I've been applying. I have a system of tiers that are based on my desperation. You'll know when I'm desperite. Lol! I'm sure that everything will work out the way it's supposed to in the end. Wish me luck!
Just to let all of my friends and family know, I do still miss and love you all. I hope that everything is going well for you. I am going to try to keep in touch with you all. I want to be honest and let you know that keeping in touch is not one of my strong points. If you need me just call or email or even text. I'm still here for you!! Another quick note, I am also starting a film review blog, which is honestly long overdue for me. It is at blondiesflickfind.blogspot.com. I'm still building that one up, but I'll let you know when it's officially up and running.
Until next time.....
I am still in the process of getting this blog up and running smoothly. My intent is to start making film reviews. I have a varied opinion, so please feel free to comment. Just to get the ball rolling, I am going to start by reviewing my film collection and other films that I see along the way. My goal is to keep up with the new releases and share my expectations for the weekends upcoming films. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you will enjoy and laugh a little.
I do not know what is going on with my hair this week. It seems like I cannot put enough moisture into it. (Authors note: This is not me above…I wish I had that much hair) How is the weather in everyone's area? Tonight it is all rainy and dreary and I think it is affecting the hubs and I. He is aggravating me to no end. My grandmother's 70th birthday bash was this past weekend, where I met a surprising guest in my cousin's wife. Why is this surprising you say? She is a naturalista too! We sat and discussed products and things like that.
Anyway, just didn't want anyone thinking that I wasn't alive or kicking. I am here, and I should have a new product review in the next couple of weeks. I just ordered a new product from a different website.
Have a great night!
So the product that I am reviewing is not a hair product. However, I did review a Carol's Daughter hair product over on Beauty and the Bitch . You should check that out as well. Today on my blog, I am reviewing their Almond Cookie Shea Souffle.
First off after getting this product, I took a big whiff… and fell into a sea of soft loving almond-y goodness. Oh wow this stuff smells good! I have really dry skin so I was praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster (google it..You're welcome) that it worked well.
My prayers were answered.
Instantly my skin felt soft and smooth and luxurious. It is a small jar but a little goes a long way. I slather some on after I've had a bath and I feel all soft and touchable. My husband agrees with me too. If you read my blog over there on Beauty and the Bitch, You will see I wasn't the biggest fan of their leave in conditioner. But their Souffle? Sign me up! It's totally worth the money. I am just jealous of all the people that live near a CD!
Good day my lovelies! I hope all is going well with you in natural world. Things are….well, they are okay over here. I would be lying if every now and again I didn't pull on my hair to see its length and think "If my hair was relaxed, it would be this long.
But then I realize, this is about more than long hair. It is about healthy hair, hair that I can manage and take care of, without having to spend several hours a week in a salon. Yes, I loved the silky feeling of my hair when it was relaxed, but that silky feeling only lasted a week at best. The rest of the time I was walking around like Pippi Longstockings!
For you that do not know me, I have a type 4a Curl. That means my hair is very kinky with a visible curl pattern. I need to take some pictures of my hair, I don't have any really recent ones. Maybe that will be my next entry.
For those interested about the classification of curls, you can check out: http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types . It breaks down each type of curl pattern, and also offers you some products specifically for your curl type.
Right now, I am doing very basic things with my hair. I wash it using a suave shampoo and conditioner. I moisturize using olive oil. I pick it out into a sassy fro' and then I dash!
I'm loving the ease..I just wish my hair was a wee bit longer.
I know i have not been writing at all lately. I promise I will get it together!
