I had my 4th natural hair anniversary this past weekend!!!!! Eeeeekkkk!!! As I shared on Instagram account, (@cravingyellow) , the excitement of it all is unreal!!! I went to New York to have my hair professionally blow-dried and straightened. It took 2 hours and cost me an arm, a leg and more! But it was so worth it! My hair is finallly waist length!!!! Who would have known when I started out four years ago that a Kenyan girl with coarse and coily 4C hair could have such long tresses!!?? 

I took lots of pictures to capture the full process with you! (Scroll through for a Vlog and to the very end for a MEGA GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT!!!) I'm looking forward to sharing all the behind-the-scenes images, videos and stories of this eventful weekend over the course of the week, so feel free to stop by again!! ;-) 

 But firssttt.... THE BIG REVEAL!! 


"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to your fullest potential and fight for your dreams. " - Ashley Smith.

Girls love to twirl...especially if they're in white fluffy tulle skirts! (PS-That wind was cued by the angels!) Press Play :-)
