The Run Down: New Car, New Hair, New Favorite Song!

Welcome to this weeks edition of the rundown! Finally, I bought a new (new to me) car! My poor PT Cruiser was on its last leg and my last nerve. I was also down to my last penny in repair money. It stopped on me while I was finding a parking spot to my cousins baby shower. I was scared I wasn't going to make the 45 minute drive back home. I looked online for cars that were in my budget and decided on Nissan. After looking at several, I found the perfect gently used car for me. Meet Lola!

baby shower 003I have been bouncing the ideal around for a new hair color for weeks. I finally got the nerve to do it. I have been natural for four years and the only color I use is very black Clairol. I just think black makes my natural hair look healthier. Well, I was getting bored with it. I love the new look! Here’s a look at all angles!
This Thursday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Dream on Dallas holiday mixer (post coming soon)! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! I won two passes to the Black Girl Social. Black Girls Social (BGS) is a networking company supporting women of color to be who we are, unapologetically free to dream, create, explore the unknown and pursue all possibilities on our terms. I’m beginning to love to network so this is the event for me! Also, I love to see women doing well and exploring different areas of life (no matter the race). Excited!
I also have a new favorite song. Special delivery by Bridget Kelly. The first line had me at “Wrote him a good bye letter today.” Ladies, I know you feel me!

That's our Rundown for this week! Tune in next week for Top Five and my 21 day challenge finale!



  1. Love the car..really cute! And your hair is sooo long! It looks so pretty! I'm afraid of color so I'll stick with my henna and live vicariously through you ;)xo, Angela

  2. Thanks Angela! I'm still afraid of how it's gonna act once I go back curly. We shall see :)!

  3. Congrats on the new (to you) car! Loving your hair color! I can't believe you did it! Can't wait to see it curly! I'm sure it will be great! Looking forward to the finale of your 21 day challenge!

    1. Thanks! I just washed it yesterday and it looks great curly. I already see I will need to condition a lot more. I'm working on the weigh in post now! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. What fun! I've been debating on dying my hair too, I just don't know if i can trust anyone to make my vision happen .
