“I was having a meeting with our lovely blog editor (hey Kim!) and we were talking about our weekend plans. At the top of Kim’s plans, she mentioned that was going to be sleeping in on Saturday morning. I gasped! “NEVER SLEEP IN!” Kim looked at me in shock like most people do when I say that because well … it’s Saturday! Everyone sleeps in on the weekends, right? Wrong. Because I LOVE lists, here are 5 reasons why I don’t sleep in along with some tips for you!” – Myleik Read More…
Every now and then I log in and decide that I want to do a blog post and today is one of those days. It’s pretty obvious that like half of the world, I too am addicted to instagram. I’d stay on it all day if I didn’t have work to do! Here are my tips and tricks to help you enhance your instagram game!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
How long are people allowed to say that? I think this is the last week I’m going to be wishing people a HAPPY NEW YEAR but I think it’s totally fine here since I haven’t blogged since September. I just went back and read that post and WOW. It’s great to document feelings because you can go back and see how much you’ve grown (changed).
Myleik Teele, founder and CEO of curlBOX, suggests finding your hair’s favorite oil, one that is easily absorbed and moisturizes without feeling heavy or greasy. ”My hair happens to love coconut oil, and [certain] oils – olive, apricot, grape seed – will help during the styling and conditioning process,” she says.

I had this idea to share what a typical day in my life is like and every time I think about it, I start and then I get busy or I try to remember and when I actually have a chance to sit and document I have forgotten most of it and I’m just so darn tired that I just say to myself, “they’d much rather have good products and service and images or WHATEVER as opposed to ME sharing MY daily ins and outs.” I felt differently today … Today is my first day off since July 7th.
It’s September! It’s the infamous “fourth quarter” … A chance to finish strong or accept defeat and prepare to start 2013 out the right way (focused, disciplined, etc). Either way you cut it, it’s a good time of the year. And I love Fall! Don’t you love it? You’re right on the edge where you can pull off some of the looks that could be side-eye worthy … Or maybe I’m the only one ready to wear daisy dukes and cowboy boots (don’t judge my life). *lol* I guess that’s more like those few weeks right before Fall begins. Anywho … Without further ado … This is what I’m feeling this week!
Last August I spent every Wednesday night for a month with my good friend Fredara. Each morning we’d get up and talk about new technology, new businesses, men (she even had me signing up for e-harmony) over my infamous spinach and mango smoothies. One of the mornings that we were talking about business, we started talking about beauty sampling programs and it hit me almost immediately. I had to do this for the natural hair community. Sure, there was sampling already happening but I wanted something that I would love – something wonderfully attractive. I always felt like other groups of women have a different experience with their beauty products; they experience things luxuriously and high-end. That is what I wanted for curlBOX. I wanted something that not only looked good but felt good when it showed up on your doorstep.
