The Baker And Beyond Series: Getting Started

Planning For Wedding Planning

I don't know about you, but marriage has been one of the things I've daydreamed about since I was a little girl. Who would it be? When would it happen? I had the questions, but of course, the answers were a mystery.

I was shocked when we got engaged (see our story here) and I still am! It doesn't seem real, but it is. No two stories are the same. I've heard many horror stories about weddings and wedding planning but my unique dealings with the wedding world have been kind (knock on wood). I want to share my story with you.

Gearing Up For Change

Preparing For A Life Shift

I've blogged for three years. I was resistant to starting a blog because I didn't think it would be "successful". I thought, who would want to read what I have to say?...and that thought kept me from starting.

I eventually got over that by convincing myself that I would blog for me. Over the years, I noticed 3 things: 1. People I thought would be my biggest supporters, weren't. 2. People I thought wouldn't care, cared so much. And 3., Blogging can create a lane for new people in your life; allowing strangers you would have never met otherwise to become close by sharing stories over internet space. Dealing with those 3 things alone allowed me to become even more comfortable with blogging for me! Over the years, I created a space where I could document my hair journey and share what I was learning about my hair with others who were interested in being a part of this journey with me.

Have You Ever Planned A Wedding?!

...and where I am!

Filter of a wedding veilIf you didn't catch this post or you don't follow me on social media, then you're unaware of what's been going on. It's been about a month since my last blog post and I'm starting to realize that I'm not able to be here like I was pre-wedding planning. The want to write more blog posts than I've written during the last couple of months is there, but the time isn't. I have to be honest with myself.

I'm smack dab in the middle of planning my (and my fiance's) wedding! I haven't shared many details here, or anywhere for that matter, but I plan to share a few things once our special day has passed and I'm looking more like the Joanne in the picture on the right!

Protective Styling

Braided Updos

Before I moved to DC, I was in the salon every two weeks! I rarely got protective styles because I didn't care much for that look. It's been three years since that time and things have changed. What's changed, you ask? Let me explain.

A New Hair Routine

I have a home salon in North Carolina. Moving to DC made it almost impossible for me to see my cosmetologist like I need to. Now that I'm planning my NC wedding, I'm home more and I'm able to see my cosmetologist on a more regular basis.

My last visit to her salon was 2.5 years ago. In the fight for having and maintaining healthy hair, I have to change what was once routine, in more ways than one. My life is much different now than it was 2.5 years ago. Things are happening that I didn't correlate with the health of my hair, so I'm taking my advice and using these 6 things to get me back on the right track to having healthy hair.
