Funny thing, I was paired with Schevashea of Curves & Confidence. How ironic is that?! We met a few months ago while attending a blogger’s brunch at Elle’s. You can read her post here and see all the goodies I sent.

Tomorrow we are volunteering to feed the homeless. It is our last gift as a family to someone in need. I want to instill in my son the true meaning of this holiday and that's to celebrate the birth of CHRIST and the unmatched gift given to the world.
For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His should, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Enjoy the reminder of why we celebrate this holiday,

Christ wasn't born to provide me, you, the world with joy only during the month of December or when the day was difficult although I am truly grateful that His joy is available. He came to provide me, you, the world peace and joy 180 days of each year.
This song is so fitting. Enjoy!

Are you ready for Christmas?! This song should make you want to be in the arms of the one you love. Oh how I miss Luther! Mr. Vandross can sing anything, anytime, anywhere for any occasion. It is definitely fitting to share a song from his This Is Christmas cd. Do own this cd? What's your favorite track?
Grab some mistletoe and kiss the one you love!

Hello divamoms & divas,
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am going to celebrate the 12 remaining days until Christmas with you by sharing some of my favorite songs. I only have 138 songs in my iTunes Christmas list. Plus I tune into to 105.5 in November so I am all pumped up to sing, Sing, SING.
My favorite part of this song is around the 2:56 mark when Fred breaks it down & takes us to church! Amen :) Hope you enjoy.
Be sure to go and tell of the Savior's birth!

Good morning divamoms & divas,
I heard this song yesterday as I prepared myself to attend church. What impacted me tremendously is this song spoke the answer to my struggles, cares and concerns.
This post is to remind you that GOD is always working on your behalf and mine. Don't focus on the video but the lyrics. If you know Andre Crouch from back in the day, you know him as a prolific song writer.
After you listen, let me know how this song encouraged, uplifted and inspired you.
Praying GOD'S richest blessings on you today,

I’ve been reading so many blogs which is why I haven’t been writing. I felt it is necessary to learn to care for my hair this time around if I am serious about a growing healthy well moisturized head of hair. So these photos mark one month. I co wash once per week and keep my hair spritzed with jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil & water and seal with EVCO. My leave in conditioner is Cantu Shea Butter and I co-wash with Suave almond and shea butter conditioner. I really like to Shea Moisture’s Curly Smoothie as my daily moisturizer because it makes my hair curly tightly and hides the awkwardness of the length. I can’t wait until I can two strand twist it again. This process is teaching me patience! As I mentioned in an earlier post this won’t become a hair blog but I’ll keep you all updated.

I won't apologize for not posting. I've been relaxing, enjoying KT, working, and reading a great deal. I believe your visit here is so much better when I give you quality rather than quantity. Plus I want to share some personal things that I've been pondering and praying about. Or should I say some lessons I've learned and am learning as I continue to travel this road called life dealing with the good & bad. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving break from work and seeing my family. What are your plans?
I wanted to share with you in case you don't follow me on Twitter that I recently made the decision to grow out my brush cut. I know how much many of you love it on me. I do too. Truth is I've been rocking this cut for almost 3 years and I in need of a change. I'm actually prepping myself to move towards consuming only chicken, fish and turkey. That's another blog post and I hope my best Q isn't reading this :).
So instead of posting here on my blog, I've been educating myself about natural hair. SERIOUSLY! I have spent hours on YouTube and reading natural hair blogs. I even joined a forum. I've been natural for many years on and off. I've worn my hair bald, brush cut, fro, long in a puff because I didn't know how to care for long natural tresses, braided and two strand twisted.
Yesterday I was looking through old photos for motivation to take this journey. I pulled out photos where I liked the way I looked with mid length/longer natural hair. Others not so much. This is where the doubt comes in that I can let it go and grow. I hate the in-between stage. I don't like the pull back look with a hand-band on me and I'm too old for two strand twists on a fro (not sure how to explain this).
My mom is natural and my best returned to the community as well as fellow blogger Roodlyn at www.supermomplace.com. The support is there. I'm working on learning my hair and becoming a better divamom on the inside as the outside changes. I'm not sure how much I'll share on my blog. I don't want to talk products and try and re-teach what's already out there. Maybe the pictures of the journey? Let me know your thoughts.
Hope each of you are well. I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE 171 FOLLOWERS. Thank you oh so much!

Before I go let me welcome my new followers. I hope you've taken a moment to catch up on my blog to get a glimpse of what I do here. I pray that you are encouraged, motivated and inspired through my struggles, victories and love for fashion. Muah!!
