And To You And YOURS Indeed...I'm SO Done.

A great woman(albeit a fictional one)once said "We're so over we need a new word for over". You hit the nail on the head with that one, Ms. Bradshaw. Sometimes, a man knows he loves a woman only after she's gone. But when does the woman want to know said man loves her? When she's there. And then sometimes, the love is just not reciprocal on his part no matter how good of a woman she is...and that is when you put on your big girl panties and exit.stage.left. DO NOT CONTINUE TO THROW YOUR PEARLS TO SWINE. Leave him to wallow in the mire with his other ho(g).

I'm back with a new 'do and "product" review. I told you last post that I'd be changing my hair soon, and this time it's a(nother) wig. This wig is from the company FRIDAY NIGHT HAIR, which is known for their high-quality synthetic wigs. The style I got is numbered GLS11, which is about mid-back length and has long layers in the front. While a basic style, I got this one solely due to the "99J" color, which is a purplish-reddish, deep wine color. You like?
The long and short of this wig is, I like the style, LOVE the color, but the wig as a whole is a FAIL! I'm not sure whether mine came from a bad batch or not, but the synthetic fibers rub against my clothing and tangle like the cheapest of beauty supply store wigs. Considering that FRIDAY NIGHT HAIR's synthetic wigs are supposed to be of superior quality and can last about a year with proper care, I have trouble understanding why I'm having problems with this wig after only one week...... Anyway, the wig was $49.99 with free shipping (due to holidays), which is still considerably less than what I would pay someone to blow my own hair out. And while I will chalk it up to I think I just got one from a bad batch, I still consider it a FAIL. For me, if I have to do a whole bunch of work to a wig to make it wearable daily, that defeats the PURPOSE of even wearing one. My own hair is long - it just takes a lot of work. I certainly don't need A WIG that mimicks it's high maintenance.

Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself...'s me, Chicki Tee. The UN-blogger. smh. I know, I haven't blogged in quite a long time, but I have had a lot of things going on. For one, we've been crazy busy at my job, and secondly, I got a "side gig" as a...wait for it...FREELANCE MAKEUP ARTIST! Or MUA, for those who like to stay on trend. So far, I've only done 2 weddings, but I have a larger job coming up that I - STAY TUNED FOR THAT!!!! Ok, really I wanted to talk about my hair. I've told you guys how I'm super low maintenance (read LAZY) when it comes to hairstyles, right? Well, in the past few months I've just been wearing my hair in braids that I did myself (uh-oh!), rather sloppily, if I'm being honest. However, I just took out the braids and I was amazed at how long my hair has grown. I hadn't been doing anything in particular to it, except using my Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil (little bottle of awesomeness-luv it!), but everytime I braid it up and just leave my hair alone, it grows like a weed.
I think I will eventually blow it out & flat iron it, as I haven't straightened my hair in a good 2+ years so I can't wait to see the actual length. But for now, I will just put it back in a bun and throw on a hat. I got a.n.o.t.h.e.r. hairdo coming down the pipe. STAY TUNED FOR THAT!
