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! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life. I'm here to tell you not to give up. 
You know, death inspires life. A number of my relatives and friends have passed away, ranging in age from 20's to 80's. Actor Luke Perry, my middle…

Thank God It’s Natural Butter Cream Was My Moisture Miracle





I really, really love Thank God It’s Natural or TGIN productsI’ve blogged about them before, but have since fallen in love with a another TGIN must-have. While attending a conference in Austin last year, it was just my luck an ice storm decided to pass through. Thankfully, I checked the weather before leaving and packed a heavy winter coat, cute hat and TGIN products. The temperature dipped into the 20’s. For a Cali girl, 20’s are like Antarctica. 

The company sent me a sample pack to review of their shampoo, conditioner, twist cream, and the Butter Cream Moisturizer.  I knew my hair was not going to be happy with the cold. Hours before heading out to 6th Street to get my par-tay on, I moisturized my hair with TGIN’s Butter Cream.  My hair stayed really soft and hydrated throughout the night. 

I dabbed on just a tad bit more before I went to bed, rolled my hair and tied it up in a satin wrap. By morning my hair had a nice bounce. I had no worries about my hair the remainder of the trip. 




Warning: My Hair Looks Good! This is right after
I did a presentation in Austin. My hair wasmoist and soft. 

The great thing about the Butter Cream Moisturizer is that you don’t need very much. A little really does goes a long way. It doesn’t weigh down your hair, or make it greasy. I don’t even think there’s a fragrance. 

I finally finished my other tub of daily moisturizer and immediately bought TGIN’s Butter Cream Moisturizer. I ordered it on Wednesday and it was on my porch Saturday morning.  

TGIN creator Chris-Tia Donaldson has great products. I’m also a HUGE fan of her lip balm. And kudos to TGIN for making travel size natural hair products so I don’t have lug a big tub of Butter Cream in my bag.  

Check out TGIN. Trust me, I don’t give favorable reviews to stuff I don’t like. 


Butter Cream!
