Several retailers like Bake Shop Butters and Shi-Naturals have deals that start this weekend so make sure you read the dates carefully.
Most Black Friday deals will run the entire weekend but certain vendors have special deals on Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Thank God I’m Natural is doing a different deal each day. After shopping in the comfort of your PJ’s early Friday morning be sure to hit up local small businesses on Saturday. I am making my way over to Lexie’s of Louisville for bath and body gifts. I love their Shea Butter & Olive Oil Moisturzing Creme.

Make sure you are subscribed to the blog so you know first-hand when to enter, trust me you are going to love it. As always follow me on facebook, twitter and youtube. May the deals be ever be in your favor.

It’s here! You may remember me talking about Jessicurl’s new strong-hold styling gel. I was part of the testing process and even got to submit suggestions to name the new gel.
Well Spiralicious is officially released to everyone on Jessicurl website available in you favorite scents Island Fantasy, Citrus Lavender or unscented.
This styler provides great 2-3 day hair for me and gives my wash-n-go’s the definition I love without the crunch.
My old friend Rashani called me one day and asked the question, “Hey you got 20 minutes?” And thus that started my interview on the hot new podcast 20 Minutes, hosted by Rashani of Single Simulcast fame.
Rashani and I go way back. Back before I actually got my first perm. We grew up together in northern Cali and have kept in close contact over the years. So in this 20 Minute interview Rashani wanted to talk about this new trend of natural hair something he is seeing take place in his own house with his wife and daughter. Luckily that is a topic I am well versed on.
