Mambo Hair review 

As I promised here it is, my Mambo Hair review! 

You all know I love to change my hair styles, to see what marvelous styles I can come up with. Months ago, I saw a girl on instagram with the most beautiful twists I have ever seen! Of course I saved the picture and started researching. Take a look.

Aren’t they gorgeous!?

 I was asking everyone, “Do you know what type of hair this is?” Do you know where I can find this hair?” “Do you know what type of hair coils and curls like this!!?” I needed answers! Very few people knew….. but then an answer arised out of a hopeless place.  (Sounds dramatic, but I was starting to think I wouldn’t find it.) Someone mentioned Mambo Hair. So I started to research Mambo Hair and found out that was the exact hair I had been searching for. The perfect hair for kinky twists!  

From what I read it was supposed to mimic kinky hair, it was light weight, could get wet and super easy to style. I was given a website to purchase the hair. So I went to the site found the number to contact the company and inquired about the hair. To my surprise the lady that answered was so sweet and helpful! She’s also based in southern California, and has multiple distributors in Los Angeles. I was able to go pick up the hair and they gave me a list of hair braiders who know how to use the  hair properly. 

Some interesting things about the hair. It’s super thick and curly which is great! It also comes on a weft. There’s a picture below, so you can see for yourself what I am referring to. 

 (The hair comes in different colors. As you can see I got dark brown)

This photo is just to show you what a weft is. It’s when the hair is sewn on to material so it doesn’t get tangled or you can weave it in. My hair braided just cut it off the weft and started twisting. 

(This hair is not the actual hair. I just wanted to show you a visual of a weft.)

I got my hair done pretty full because I hate when braids or twist are spacey. I will do another update on the hair when I get it wet in the Bahamas next month. Also, on how well it lasts. 

I really like this hair and will be getting this again, very soon! I might keep it styled like this for awhile.

If you have anymore questions let me know! I love to share.

Losing a pet

I was always taught when you take in another living being, you are to treat it as your own and with respect! Making sure its well feed, excersised, happy and healthy.

How self centered is it to believe, humans are the only beings on this planet with feelings and emotions. Pets definitely have them too. Hence, why people have therapy, service and companion dogs. They play a tremendous role in life. I belive  everything has its place here on earth, and fulfills a divine purpose. God created everything with a beautiful thought in mind. 
 This dog pictured above has been with us through some super tough times. Consoling us when we were sad, and even showing us love when we were wrong. You can’t even find that in everyday in humans. There’s something special about coming home from a tough day or beinging in the midst of a difficult  situation. Then being able to come home to a bushy tailed, bright eyed being. Who only wants your attention and to love you! It’s so fullfilling. A sincere type of love ❤.

I’m posting this in honor and memory of a beautiful spirit, Comise. She recently passed away at the young age of 5. The ending of her journey with us, was completely devastating. Our dogs generally live for 14 years minium, and  pets in our family really grow to be apart of the family. We eat together, sleep together ,play together… and in Comise’s case, watch TV together. (I only wish they could speak, that would be amazing.) 

While she was sick, some people  couldn’t fathom the thought that I was concerned and mourning over the well being of my dog. Or even trying to raise money to save her life, the audacity??? Right? ..   Beleive me, if I would have had the funds for any surgery or health care services she needed, I would have paid every penny. In order to know she was going to feel healthy and whole. However, her health was rapidly declining, and she would have been in pain for the remainder of her life. We did not want that to be her life.

We honor many things, but it’s  rare that I see people truly give thanks to our furry friends and family members. So today I send so much gratitude, love and respect to Comise. For being loyal, being kind, being a friend and not biting us when we were irritating her. I’m forever thankful that God would have blessed us with your amazing presence. 

I know there’s this belief dogs don’t go to paradise, I believe they do. I believe every being is awarded for being kind and living out their purpose in excellence. Comise, you’ll always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for all the positive feels and energy! 

May you live in perfect peace.

A Night at the Museum

Hey All! 

I said I would be updating you about my adventures in LA. Especially since my boyfriend is away, pursuing dreams! 💃🤗 Things have been pretty good. I’m staying busy with work and catching up with friends. I’m also spending a large portion of my time, getting me together! Writing goals, getting organized, spirituality; you know just finding out more about myself, to live the best life possible! 

This week a friend invited me to Broad Museum, in Downtown Los Angeles. I usually like museums, but this one was better than I expected. You can find a mixture of artwork here. Modern, classic, urban, sculptures and thought provoking  peices. I’ve been to a few art galleries and museums, where people know about Picasso, Frescos, the difference in textures and canvases. This museum is not like that. Here one can be well versed in art, learning about art or just down to see some awesome images and have fun. I once tried to get into the fascinating world or art…I  took an art history class in undergrad.  .  . Let’s just say it was a decision that is going under the category of…. Ebony’s dumbest ideas! 😅 Although, I still enjoy viewing  beautiful, exquisite artwork and letting my mind wonder. 

With all that being said let me show you some photos from the night. 

As you can see I defiantly enjoyed myself! I thank my friend for inviting me! ❤ If you ever find yourself in Downtown Los Angeles, check out the Broad Museum. They continuously swap out the art and every time is a new experience! Welp thanks for reading hope you enjoyed. Comment below! 

BTW, for those of you that love hair, as much as I do. I have mambo hair twist in! I love love this hair. -Reveiw coming soon-

My dogs health 

 During a time when our lives were in turmoil, 5 years ago, we were given a puppy by our neighborhood. We named her Comise. She immediately brought our family joy, healing, and She has been very sensitive to our needs and emotions. We have had to move several times with her by our side and she has been a trooper through it all. She even comforted us in the lose of another pet and her best friend 3 years ago. 
Yesterday, when arriving home after work. I found her laying by the front door unable to get up and walk. We tried to aid in getting up for about 10 minutes. Then we noticed she could not move her back legs. Me, my friend, and daughter lifted her into the car then drove to the pet hospital. At the hospital we were told by the veterinarian that she has a herniated disk in her back, which may leave her legs paralyzed. She has to see a spinal specialist at UCDAVIS school of medician, Veterinarian Hospital before this becomes permanant. 
The surgery to correct the herniated disk is $8,000. If I had the money I would pay without any second thoughts. However, I am unable to afford that. I make a modest salary at Saint John’s shelter, for real change, as a vocational culinary instructor. I have paid all I can towards her medical needs, and I am simply running out of funds. Currently I am just trying to keep her comfortable.   
Comise has a great personality and is very loving and active. We would like to keep her up going and help her reach her potential of living healthy to the age of 13 or 14, like our previous German Sheppard. She is only 5 years old now, but she has made such a terrific difference in our lives. If you are able to contribute to help us get her surgery, we would greatly appreciate it and so would she.
