September. The month we all begin to dream about pumpkin spice, hot cider, warm color palettes and leaf peeping. While I love this month for all those reasons, I am excited to start this season with my new curly hairstyle!
Update on 5/15/2020 – It’s been exactly two years and I am still enjoying a single scoop of collagen peptides with my organic coffee each morning. My skin and nails are as healthy as can be! I have a confession to make…I hopped on the collagen peptide train! It’s not usually my thing to follow trends as they come and go. I am more of a traditionalist. However, my sister-in-law posted about this health conscious trend and I was intrigued. The supplement brand I am trying is Sports Research Pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. I purchased via Amazon because I like to read reviews. This one currently has over 3,000 with a 4.5 star rating! It is paleo friendly, GMO tested, KETO certified, manufactured in a GMP facility, grass-fed and pasture-raised and gluten free. The container states that results may be seen within 30 to 60 days.

If there is one thing I have learned as a curly girl, travel is not always my friend.
November 7th, folks. We are already one week into the holiday season. I feel as if we are in a race to finish 2019 and I’m slamming on the brakes to slow it all down. Anyone else feel that way too? In an effort to get ahead, I took our family portraits last weekend. Let me define the term family for you…my husband and I. ha ha! I design our Christmas cards each year and I like to be ready for the print sales. Thank goodness I did, because the next day I received an email marketing campaign with 25% off! When I was searching for couples poses, outfit inspiration and curly hairstyles for our Christmas card portraits, I was disappointed by the lack of results. For instance, type in “curly hair couples portrait” or “curly hairstyle for portraits” in Pinterest search. You may find headshots of naturally curly women,…
