Andddddd I Got NEWS!!!!

So, my life is about to change. But for the better. I don't normally talk about my personal life much on here because I know you all have more interesting lives than I do. Lol! Well I hope. Lol! However when it's something that I am excited about, I try to share it with you guys. 

So what is the big news? Well, remember back in April I shared my Engagement News? Well we initially planned to get married next year after a yr of being engaged. However things sometimes never go as planned. So my big news is, I will be getting married in a week. Yes, I did say a week. Lol!

Over the memorial holiday weekend we decide to plan a vacation to Jamaica, (where I am from), as we have never travelled outside of the country together before. While planning, we asked ourselves, 'why wait'? Let's just get married now. With just our parents, my sister and a friend names scribbled on a piece of paper we decided, let's do it! So that night we booked everything. Lol. Hotel, flight, wedding package.... everything. 

Call me weird, but I am never one for big weddings. I entertained the idea of having a real traditional wedding next year. But that barely lasted a week. The price, planning and all the shebang got to me and I am like nah, city hall is good. Luckily my fiancĂ© want whatever I want. Also, wouldn't that money look nicer in my account on a downpayment for a house one day? Yea I am one of those people that are very practical and money spending has to make real sense to me. 

So, Jamaica it is. July 22, at 11am I will be a married woman. Omg, I will be a WIFE! Ain't that crazy? Lol. Yes, you would need to call me Shelly Ann Elizabeth Aiken. I love it! Hehe! So you must be like so where are your friends and stuff? Well see I think if they are friends and know me well they will understand that this was suddenly planned and that I also I wanted this wedding to be about me and my husband without messing with with my life savings. Call me's ok, I embrace it. Lol!! Eloping would have been great. Lol. But you would have to come to my funeral after my mother kill us. We don't want that. No we don't. Lol. 

So, if you want pics and updates when we get back from Jamaica I will certainly share. It will be one of the happiest and intimate moments of my life. This will be my first time going back home to Jamaica in over 4 yrs so I am super stoked. 

And the there is other news. Lol
Dang, it just keep getting better right? Lol. Well we are expecting a lil bundle joy in December of this year. Yes folks. Your girl is preggerssss. Lol. Four months down and excited to see how this pregnancy change my body and enhance our marriage. 

I am so happy at this stage of my life. I hope you would like to go on this married life and motherhood journey with me. Until next time, live well! 

What is going on in your life? Do share!

  12. Whatever I did with these products, the styler, the Afrodisia 9 and the moisturizer all left my hair dull and flat. I gave it to my daughter in law to try and she had the same results. Glad I got them during $10 days.

  14. I think that it hard to consider plants more unassuming and disregarded, yet completely magnificient, than the glade grasses. There are wild blossoms in abundance too obviously, and the hectically murmuring creepy crawlies that feast upon them. hatton gardens jewellers

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
