Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career!

 I had a great time at the recent Beautiful Textures event in San Franciso. And I hear natural divas across the pond also had a good time when the Beautiful Textures crew traveled to Paris and London.  For my Cocoa Fly readers in the U.S. you can try some of these products that I took home.

It's simple to win.  Look at my previous post about Beautiful Textures here.  Stylist Felicia Leatherwood delivered priceless hair tips. I've taken her advice and have noticed a difference in a matter of weeks! One style I love to sport are two-strand twists. She dropped a major tip about two-strand twists that I was clueless about. All of this time I was damaging my hair because I was doing something wrong with my twists.


What was the advice Felicia Leatherwood shared about two-strand twists? Find the answer in my previous post. The first two readers to email the CORRECT answer to me win!!! Just send your answers to cocoaflyblog@gmail.com.  Good luck!
