An open letter to San Antonio...

Dear San Antonio,

One year ago exactly, I was in a rut and needed a change in life. I knew the place I was in wasn’t my final destination so I began researching and exploring different options that would fuel my fire and put a spark inside my soul. Let’s just say, after visiting you for the first time in January 2018, I knew it was meant to be.

You’re sassy with a sweet side, just like my personality and you better believe it drew me in. Your plethora of hot spot Mexican restaurants lining the picturesque river walk, the history you show off so naturally, and beautiful big city, yet small town feel are just a few of your award-winning features. Eight months ago, when I decided to pack up my life, move across the country, and give myself a new beginning, I was terrified yet thrilled. I craved your beauty, southern charm, and friendly people. And that’s just what I got.

San Antonio, you have given me new opportunities that I could’ve never imagined. You gave the privilege of being a third grade teacher opening a brand new school. You blessed me with the best group of eight year olds I could’ve ever asked for. You have led me to friendships and opened new doors with blogging that I only thought were possible in my wildest dreams and for that, I am forever grateful. It hasn’t been easy to get where I am now; San Antonio, you really do have a sassy side. You have pushed me out of my comfort zone, made me really look at the person I am and aspire to be, and taught me some life lessons.

I will say, moving my life across the country and completing starting over, I set myself up for some challenges. And let’s be honest, it was really what I needed. Because of you San Antonio, I am better. I am a better teacher, friend, daughter, blogger…I am a better version of myself.

All that’s left to say is… thank you. You have yet to let me down, you pretty little thing! Thank you for being exactly what I’d hoped you’d be. The adventure is just beginning and I know it’s going to be a wild ride. Buckle up, baby! We’re in this together!

All my love,

Sew-in Hair Extensions Before + After + Review

Happy Monday! I have wanted hair extensions for SO LONG so when I got the chance to do hair modeling at Indigo Child in Dallas, I thought why not?! I have had them for about a month now, so I thought I was answer some FAQ’s and fill you in on my actual thoughts! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or DM me on Instagram if you have any questions!

  1. Where did you get them done? I went to my girl, Summer at Indigo Child in Dallas. She absolutely killed it and I would highly recommend her!

  2. Is it painful? No, not at all. While you are getting them done and for the next 24 hours, your scalp is a little sensitive considering you have something foreign in your hair. Honestly, after a day or two I didn’t even notice they were there.

  3. Are they annoying to sleep with? To be honest, the first night was so weird. It took me a while to get comfortable and figure out the best position (I’m a side sleeper). Also, the sensitivity played a role in how uncomfortable it was the first night. But like I said, after the first couple days, I didn’t even notice them.

  4. What is the care like? It is pretty easy and low maintenance if you ask me. I only wash and style my hair once a week; the less you wash and put heat on it the better. I do my hair routine every Sunday and the Bellami hair we used along with my natural hair, holds my curls all week. I never have to touch them up and I like them a little more each day! In the shower, I use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to help keep it healthy. You kind of have to be strategic when washing and get in between the wefts. After the shower, I use a wet brush and blow dry just the scalp area to make sure the roots are dry. I use this heat protectant from Dry Bar and curl them that night. I use this finishing spray to give texture and finish with this oil on the ends. Wha-lah!

  5. What is the price? It varies depending on where you go, the type of hair, and how much hair you get. Where I went, the hair itself costs about $300-$400 and the installation is about $800. It is recommended to go every 6-8 weeks to get them moved up and that costs $200. Definitely an investment, but look at the results!
