Two Strand Twist Tips

Two strand twists are by far my favorite protective style for myself as well as my daughters. Although they are a bit time consuming while styling, the end result greatly out-weighs any arm-ache you will experience…lol. Versatile and long lasting, two strand twists will give you weeks of time off if/when you grow tired of…

Book Review: Prey Till The End

Mild Spoilers: ✨ Prey till the End was action packed from the very beginning, which is exactly what I expected from Eaves. I would have given a 5 star review, but there were a couple of issues that I couldn’t get past. I didn’t think it was necessary to escalate Lori and Crina’s relationship to…

Mented Cosmetics Nude Lipgloss

I am a very busy mother of three, so my morning routine can get a little hectic. Trying to make sure that everyone arrives at school on time with everything they need takes priority. Makeup is the last thing on my mind.   But thankfully the women behind Mented Cosmetics (KJ Miller and Amanda E….

Plans

This Week’s Verse: Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” (NIV) I have always been the type of person to write down my plans. I have an agenda book that is filled with my “To-Do Lists” as well as sticky notes and an excessive amount of…

Vogue Knitting Live 2018

I had so much fun at Vogue Knitting Live! Spending time with family, touching all of the yarn, and meeting up with Instagram FiberFriends made the day perfect (I learned the term “FiberFriends” from GGMadeIt). Click the video to watch my highlights from our Saturday adventures. I’m not the type of person to walk up…

Grace

I’ve been debating with myself about sharing Bible verses since I began this blog. I didn’t want to come off as too pushy; forcing my beliefs onto you all. But, I also don’t want to censor myself. I want to present 100% pure Cherrelle; I want to show my true authentic self. If I never…

Why H&M…Why?

You know what…I don’t even want to know why H&M made this completely terrible addition to the internet. I’m sure they have some half-assed apology about how they didn’t realize the wrong in this post. Maybe this beautiful little boy’s guardian didn’t realize this was the sweatshirt they would put on their baby. Maybe the…

My Favorite Natural Hair Product Line 2017

In 2017, I tried a bunch of natural hair product lines. But, my favorite line of the year is Mielle Pomegranite and Honey. It smells amazing and my hair loved it immediately. On day one, my braid out was defined yet soft. As the week went on, my hair only got bigger…the volume was perfect.I…
