My goal aside from healthy hair is to also curate the perfect regimen for my thick and curly mane. One that adds to and maintains the moisture balance in my otherwise dry hair, while also promoting hair growth and length retention. Everything so far is so good! I have managed to fall even more in love with my natural curl pattern, more than I ever thought I would and these products are part of the reason why!

Now that I’ve completed my transition to natural hair, it has inspired me to look at other aspect of my life and beauty regimens. Apparently, I was not out here living my best life. Going forward I have decided to work towards a healthier state of living, living today for tomorrow’s satisfaction. This entails taking care of my skin, hair, body, and overall well-being. It would be easiest to stay in the mindset of how I don’t need much to take care of myself now, but the goals is to take such tender care now so that I’m not playing catch-up later. Too often beauty is reactive instead of proactive, so I’ve decided to be proactive in how I maintain my health and beauty.

Jessie James Decker (JJD) is a woman of many trades, and there are many aspects of her life and character I admire. I have been a fan of her’s since 2008 when I heard her single “Blue Jeans” from her self-titled debut album, Jessie (maiden name) James in both “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “Sorority Wars”. Since then, she has continued her pursuit and production of her own original music; gone on to marry, start a family, and creatively direct the production of her own hair, lip kit, and clothing lines. Finally, she has collaborated with the ladies of Fave 4 (hair care) to produce her own body care line, a.k.a Bless Your Body (BYB) ($24).

I’ve decided to initiate a new series here on the blog, this series will be comprised of foundation tests where I swatch all types of “foundations” from BB/CC creams to tinted moisturizers to full-fledged foundations. I will cross the spectrum of sheer, medium, and full coverage; powders, creams, and liquids; high-end and drug store quality, all for your viewing pleasure. The purpose of this series is to showcase the foundations’ color profiles, texture, and wear in combination with my skin’s complexion and chemistry. Hopefully, the posts consistent with this series will help y’all identify if these are some things you wish to spend your money on, whether it be for the formula, wear, cost, or color range availability. I hope y’all enjoy!
