Checking in

 

Hey there!!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve made any posts. Thought I’d do a quick check-in.

All is well these days. I’ve had quite a trying year, being pulled in many different directions and didn’t have a lot of time to put into here. But hey, the year is almost over and things are smoothing out.

Though I have not been very active blogging, I have been keeping up with all things related to natural hair and all of the going ons in the community :-). Including being in on curlBOX and the NaturalBOX, trying various natural hair products and deciding on a newer set of staple products.

I have some ideas and plans in the works for this blog including a new look/layout. In the mean time I thought I’d touch base, say hi and share a few pictures that I’d taken showing a recent wash & go.

August 2012 CurlBOX

Earlier in the year I began hearing about these monthly beauty subscription box services and became intrigued.

I did a bit of digging. Because I follow and research so much relating to natural hair I started stumbling across something called CurlBOX in the natural hair community. At the time it was in its infancy, and I didn’t completely understand what it was, how it worked etc.

Then a few short months later, through Beautiful Brown Girls I was given the opportunity to interview the founder, Myleik Teele, as a guest blogger on Beautiful Brown Girls online magazine. Read the interview.

Because of that interview opportunity I did a lot more research about CurlBOX and became so enamored with the busy savvy, marketing genius and genuine excitement that Myleik has for her business, brand and community that she is servicing with her company I couldn’t wait to be a part of CurlBOX some way somehow.

I learned that CurlBOX is a monthly beauty subscription service, $20.00 per month, which delivers a variety of products for curly natural hair. I signed up to be on the waiting list and I finally got into this exclusive service. In July I received my first CurlBOX. And I must admit I awaited the arrival of it with anticipation. I got my second one yesterday. Again, I couldn’t wait to see what would be in there.

Included in each CurlBOX have been full-sized products, samples, coupons, hair care and styling tips and a card with such positive words.

If you have even a tinge of product junkieism, lol, like variety, trying new products or still on the hunt for your holy grails a service like CurlBOX is definitely the way to go and it helps you stay mindful of your budget. Plus the anticipation and surprise factors are priceless!
