In my last post about twerking, I talked about how I’ve found plenty of deals on Groupon for fitness and clothes. Still using Groupon. My last class for twerking is tomorrow and I may still pay for the classes outside of Groupon. The classes were just that good! The season is changing and now I’m looking for new fitness classes to expand my fitness game.

One of the most frustrating things when moving to a new city as a woman is finding a new place to call your salon. When you’re black naturalista it’s even more complicated because you’re not sure who’s really skilled and educated in caring for natural hair. The black hair salon search is sooooo exhausting!

Well I’ve been here in the DC Metro Area for the past five and have been through plenty of hairstyles and phases.

Back in February 2016, I went to the Groupon website on the hunt for some new fitness classes to get me out of the rut of being bored to death with going to the gym. I entered 2016 ready to move pass my plateau in fitness but got stuck with the same fitness routines. Ughhhh! I wasn’t ready to commit to monthly payments to different fitness classes I haven’t tried before,

I’m sure by now if you follow me on social media you saw a flow of pictures and posters related to the Naturalista Hair Show. Although it was one day only, it was definitely an event to remember. While in attendance I caught a few classes and a panel for bloggers. To be honest, the whole vibe was just on point. The vendors, the finger food, the people, the location and the information were all just right.

Last week, I had the pleasure of making a (last minute) trip to Memphis, TN. It was seriously last minute but so well worth the stress. If you already follow me on Snapchat (skinnygotcurves), you witnessed my entire trip with me.  I shared some of my experience on Periscope (skinnygotcurves) too. My family wanted to visit the National Civil Rights Museum along with other sights in Memphis. I was interested in seeing the museum along with getting a taste of Memphis food.

Guess who’s late? Me! 

This post is dedicated to the ones who are thinking about going to the gym, are annoyed with the gym, or just want to see what I have to say about the gym. Welcome all! Last night, I shared on Periscope ways to make the gym suck less because let me tell you, the gym suck sometimes. Being the solution oriented person I am, this post gave me a chance to vent and create solutions all at once.

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share with you some fitness hacks I wrote about earlier this year that helped me stay focused. While getting closer and closer to my goal I realize how important consistency is to me. But in order to stay consistent, you have to have tricks up your sleeve to get rid of excuses.

Here’s an excerpt for the fitness hacks I wrote about on For Harriet.

No expensive expresso machine. No microwave. Simple and affordable way to make your green tea latte at home. Someone requested that I share how to make this and of course I had to oblige. But before you take a look at the video demo, take a look at all the benefits of consuming matcha green tea. Some say that one cup of Matcha Green Tea is the equivalent of 10 cups of regular green tea.

I had the pleasure of attending Boulevard of Chic in Baltimore, MD. This event features local vendors with jewelry trucks along with jewelry, beauty, and fashion tables. It was very hard to stay within my personal budget because there were so many pretty goodies that I couldn’t walk away from. The day was perfect with fashionable finds, perfect weather and food. Couldn’t ask for anything better. Here are some the vendors I had the pleasure in meeting at the event.

Finally I’m aware of this event way ahead of time. Unfortunately even with knowing in advance I still waited to the last minute to purchase tickets. SMH. Missed out on the opportunity to get the VIP tickets which would have been a sweet deal. Anyway, this International Natural Hair Meetup is taking place in most major cities so be sure to check out the site for your city. nnhmd.com

For the DMV area we will have the pleasure of meeting some of my personal favorite youtubers,
