Dear Diary: Preparing for Mexico

Preparing for Mexico



     I decided against installing my weave and opted for jumbo cornrows. I saw a picture of Keyshia Cole's jumbo braids done by an LA stylist and I was inspired. I wanted to try the "add in/feed in" method of installing the cornrows. Mind you, I had no idea how to do them. After a couple of research hours invested into YouTube, I was confident I could teach my friend to do them so she could do them in my hair. We practiced for about an hour until she perfected the style. 




   I was taught better than this but I'm such a last minute person. I just packed today. I know. I leave in the morning and will be heartbroken if I leave something behind. This is a family trip so my wardrobe will be PG-13. Usually, I like to dress for the scenery. And for the beach, that usually means half naked, and Rated R. That includes small bikinis, mesh skirts and sheer shirts. I'll be toning some of that stuff down with kimonos, longer shorts and coveralls. Some of my favorite brands along for the trip are Jeffrey Campbell, Forever 21, PacSun, UNIF, LamodaUK and Victoria's Secret.


    I returned to my usual clear coated stiletto finger nails. I got a gel overlay to avoid any instances of chipped or discolored nail polish. As for my toes, a classic French tip will suffice.
