Tween Trends Wk1

Here she is, my Tween showing off her Trends! Yaya, has to wear uniforms throughout the week for school so she has more time on the weekends to actually wear what she wants. We decided that it would be cool to show off her style on the weekends.

We all know our kids have their own creative sense of style, so feel free to share a pic of your own kids/ tweens creative style on our Facebook Page!

Spring Break Wk: Hanging Out at Sea World

As you already know, Yaya had spring break so one of the other things we did was hang out at Sea World. It was so beautiful out, we decided just to go and walk around. I got to use my new camera to take pics with which I LOVED! Hope you enjoy the pics!

Simple Half Up Half Down On A Braid Out

Just as the title says! It was very simple! This was done on a braid out before we left for a party. I just un-did her braids she had from the night before which were already moisturized. I parted across the top to make a ponytail and left the other half down. That simple!

I would say she liked this style! Wouldn't you?! :)

Spring Break Wk: Semi Homemade Donuts

It's Spring Break!!! You know what that means?! Yaya is home with me ALL week! O_o Haha... So, of course we had to come up with a couple of things to do. I will try to post what we come up with as we go. Yaya, suggested that we should make some yummy donuts to have for a snack.

Here's Yaya making a hole in the biscuits carefully to form a donut. We used canned Great Value biscuits.

Ready for frying. I took them out when they were lightly golden on each side.

As soon as I took them out, Yaya quickly dipped some in plain sugar and others in cinnamon/ sugar.

All done! Perfect to the taste!

Although I'm trying to watch what I eat, I must admit...I did have a few! Did I feel guilty after?! Sure I did! Haha... But they were soo good. Oh well!

Yaya's Lunchbox: Cheese & Crackers!

Can you believe we all forgot about Yaya's lunch last night! We were so tired that we did not even think about it. We've just been so busy lately! :/

Anywho, early this morning I told Yaya that we forgot to come up with something for her lunch. So, I tell her to just eat school lunch today because I did not get a chance to go food shopping yet. O_o Well, if you remember a previous post I did, she HATES school lunch! Hahaha... Hey, I figured I try right! Lol... That girl will do just about anything to NOT eat school lunch at all.

So, she pulls out the crackers and then ask if I can cut up some of the sharp cheddar cheese we have. I said sure, I completely forgot that we had that in the fridge. I also grabbed an apple and cut it up in slices for her and sprinled lightly with a bit of cinnamon sugar and gave her a side of Hershey's Syrup Caramel to dip it in. (YUMM... We love apples and caramel! Lol) You know what, that was a quick little lunch we put together in no time. Yaya, can sure eat crackers for days! We always get the Keebler Export Sodas Crackers, we all really love those. Here's a few added pics! :o)

If you have any ideas for lunch, that I can try out with my picky child please let me know?! Lol...

Yaya's Braid/ Bantu Knot Out

So, I had some stuff planned for Yaya and me to get into this weekend, but she took off to her friend’s house for a sleepover and came back with pink and purple hair! O_o Haha… it was just the stuff you spray! (I forgot to take a pic) I then had planned on doing the whole Sunday weekly routine we do, but with everything we had going on I was so tired and did not do it.
Yaya, just did a light wash and condition with Cantu Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner. I pulled that out from a box of products I have from back when we started this whole journey; you know you go product crazy when you’re first learning and try everything. Hahaha… I figured we should start using the stuff we have left over before going out and buying anything else.
Yaya, decided that she wanted a braid out. She has really liked them! I then sprayed her hair with a little water and since I didn’t really have anything else on hand I added a very little amount of the Suave Proffessionals Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Conditioner only to all of her new growth to help with detangling. Wish I would’ve took a pic, that bad boy is coming in! Haha…
I sectioned off her hair and added Coconut Oil and ORS Olive Oil Girls Hair Pudding. At first I just braided her hair, but since she wanted a curlier look to it I put the braids in Bantu knots.

The knots were falling because she kept bouncing around, lol. I love that Satin cap! It stays on her head all night! :)

She was not thrilled about taking this pic! Not a morning person! Lol...
