Hi! I'm Shanticka. My blog is about any and everything that I want it to be. Me, my family, work, personal style, friends, etc. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy getting to know me. Live, in living color.



Happy Hump Day!! Welcome to post #3 of my birthday week!

This post is special to me because it debuts my new look. I "BIG chopped" y'all!! I have always had thick, long hair. I've had short cuts in the past, but it's been relaxed since I was 12 or 13 years old.

Cut to present. It has been around 10 or 11 months since my last relaxer. I didn't start with the expectation of going natural, but it slowly but surely shifted that way. Today, as I sat home and chilled (I have the rest of the week off), I watched a few YouTube videos about natural hair, and suddenly I got the itch. Although I was scared, I knew I would do it. To be honest, the only opinion I was worried about was my husbands. And since he loves me regardless, I knew it would be ok.

Then… I did it! And you know what?! I love it! =D When my daughter came home, she told me how much she loved it as well.

The first pic I took after I cut it. That's my "don't mess wit me" face =D

I can't say that I will never go back to relaxing, but for now, it's time for me to get to know my curls/coils.

Until next time…
