In the Midst of the Storm!!! Literally!

Cleveland Snow Storm

So many Clevelanders experienced the crazy drive home in last nights blizzard. I left my job at 3:30pm and did not arrive home until 7:00pm! It was quite the experience being in bumper to bumper traffic while it’s dark, snowy, slippery, cold, and your miles away from home and it’s nothing and I mean nothing you can do about it except wait. Not to mention I only had a quarter of a gas tank! Silly me… So wait I did.  Last night taught me a lot about patience. So what does this have to do with hair you ask? Cause patience is the one thing we need in this natural journey…and that’s exactly what it is, a journey. So I talked to God, asked Him to keep my safe, sang some songs, tried to text message my family to let them know I was safe but I couldn’t…I had no signal of course. But time went and went and I reflected and I just smiled and marveled at the beauty of the fresh fallen snow of the branches of every tree. It was so amazing I took photos! Check them out below!

Happy Monday!!


Happy Monday Curlycakes! I missed  you all over the weekend. So now it’s December and I’m tracking my hair growth from now until my 3, yes 3 year anniversary! I cannot believe it’s been three years! OMG! I had a great weekend, yesterday was first Sunday as you can see my churchfit in the photo. A Rocakes classic! lol. No peelbox hat though, couldn’t find one to match. I had a wonderful evening reading a book and hanging with my family! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Hit me up and tell me all about it!

Design Essentials SuperFantastic Curlycreams!!

Okay Curlycakes! So I’m here to dish on how much I love Design Essentials Curl Creams! They have an entire line dedicated to natural hair. The shampoo and conditioner just didn’t do it for me….but their creams are a total winner! The daily moisturizer was okay, sometimes I use it and sometimes I don’t. But any who, I love those darn curl creams. They have two types, The Curl stretching Cream and the Curl Define Gel. And let me tell you…The NAmes Don’t Lie! The products performed their duties, well worth the price!  The products kept my hair soft, moist, non-greasy, manageable and I didn’t have to reapply every night. My hair type is 4a/4b very dense and loves moisture. It can’t get enough of the stuff! So I have to tell you ladies…I swear by this stuff. The next test will be to see how it holds up in the winter, I started  using the product in the fall and it worked wonders! Keep reading to see how I use my Design Essentials Curly Creams!
