Breakfast Review

After running a 5k earlier this month me and a friend, and my kid, had an awesome breakfast.  We are at Cafe Brazil in Dallas’ Deep Ellyn neighborhood.  Food and atmosphere was great.  I had pancrepes and for 7.99 it was way too much food. 

If you are in Dallas, stop by one of their locations to experience the yumminess!

DIY Clip In Extensions

My friends daughter did clip in extensions that she made.  After seeing her results I figured I could do the same.  I watched a few videos on YouTube like the one here:

Afterwards I followed the steps and made my own.  I washed.and.conditioned my hair.  I used these products as leave ins:

Next, I part my hair and clip in my pieces.  The end result:

Getting a Bob…

So my hair appointment will be on Thursday.  If you have followed my inconsistent posts, my goal was to grow out my pixie cut.  I was hoping to be at full bob by Jan 2013.  I’ll be getting my bob on Thursday!!!  Can’t believe I made it. 

I’ve been letting my hair grow out without shaping since April 2012.  Mostly I’ve been protective styling with buns, braidouts, and most recently clip in extensions, more on this DIY later.

I’ve posted some pics below of my before hair, and I’ll update the blog with the reshape once it’s complete.

Enjoy.

I’m hoping to lose.an inch off the back and cut the  bangs to mid nose. My hair in these pics is 9 weeks post relaxer.  I’ll be getting a relaxer on Thursday.
