Beanitos? Bean Chip

So you all know that I am Diabetic.  Trying to lose weight and be more healthy.  It was time  for me to go grocery shopping.  But one thing that i been having a challenge with is eating healthy, is finding a  healthy SNACKS.  Hard for me to find a healthy snack that is good and that want to eat.  I don't know about anyone else, but I am a big chip fan.  So I went down the chip aisle looking for something that's not to bad.  I ran into something that I never heard of..... BENITOS? I was very curious about it.  I deiced to try there Restaurant style, they are like a tortilla chip.  I grab up some salsa to go with the them. 

My 1st thought, Wow they are crispy.  They are so good with a scoop of salsa or guacamole. I was so excited about these chips since they are healthy and taste good.  So I had to snap chat and post on my IG.   They reach out to me to do a review on there chips.  So got to tried some other flavors; Crunch mac n'cheese, Sweet Chili & Sour Cream, Honey Chipotle BBQ, Nacho Cheese, Garden Fresh Salas and Better Cheddar & Sour Cream.

Crunch mac n'cheese: 1out of 5
taste really weird, didn't taste nothing like cheese

Sweet Chili & Sour Cream: 3 out of 5
love the kick in these,  but not really spicy. I think since the sour cream is in it makes them mild with a little kick with hint of sweet.

Honey Chipotle BBQ: 3 out of 5
like these but these, but wish had more chipotle or bbq flavoring. Maybe its becuase it used black beans.

Nacho Cheese: 2 out of 5
Something about the cheese they used not feeling it, and plus not enough cheese flavoring.

Garden Fresh Salsa: 4 out of 5
Omg I love these. I am a big fan of salsa.  Then put that flavoring on a chip.  The reason why i didnt give it and 5, because need more flavoring.

Better Cheddar & Sour Cream: 2 out of 5
MORE Cheese Please 

So as you can see not a fan of any of there flavors with cheese in it.  I do love love there Restaurant style and there hint of lime flavor.  its one of my staples now.  Thank you Beanitos for letting review your chips.

MOTD: Makeup of the day

So I wanted to do something different, something that i used to do all the time.  A colorful look. I been rocking neutral looks. But girl.  When I 1st started doing makeup, I would do bold looks. Then I felt like maybe the bold looks are not good for everyday. So I started to do more neutral looks.  Next thing I knew i wasn't doing color at all.  So when I did this look, thouught it was way to bright up.  

What do my girls think?

Hairstyles for Natural Hair

Hey ladies, I have been natural since the begging of summer.  I wanted to give my hair a break from all the stress.  From press, to flat ironing.  In June, told myself lets go natural.  Let's see how it works out.  The 1st couple of days I was struggling.  Tryng to find what my hair need and love.  On top of that, find some styles that work for me.  I still working on that but, still want to show you some styles that i wear.  Plus when i find a new style will show you ladies that as well. 

So lets get to the styles..............

Hairstyle #1
2 hair curly puffs: this is a easy style. just part your hair into two puffs.  Can do this with a zig zag part, think that would be really cute.  I just thought of that.  Now going to have to try it and show yall.This is a very vestigial hairstyle. Can wear the puff high or low

 Hairstyle #2
half up: so my front in high pony-tail with my back down.  This is one of my favorite styles.  Can do it on wash and go hair.  Well not my hair, I have really bad shrinkage's. 

Hairstyle #3
Fro-hawk: so this is a cool hairstyle. It maybe look hard to do but it is really easy to do. P art your hair into 3-4 sections.  Slick down your sides and put it into pony-tails.  The fluff your puffs, and you are good to to. This style will last me all week.

Hope this makes you want to try natural, or give some new styles to try on your natural hair. 
Love, Annette

Last weekend, I was hanging out with my mother and cousin.  We were going to the movies but had got there a little early.  So we decide to walk around and maybe get something to drink. Then we saw a sally's beauty.  We decided to go in and get some goodies.  While we were in there my cousin was tell me that she wanted to try a clarifying shampoo. I was like omg what do that do? Since I been going natural, I notice used way more products than I need when i was press/flat ironing it.  So she told me that the clarifying shampoo removes product build-up the hair and scalp. Better than regular sulfate free shampoo or co-wash.  So I bought a bottle of As I Am clarifying shampoo as well.

I got a chance to used the shampoo last Saturday.  I had my mom was it for me.  She said that she can tell the difference of my hair, while shampooing it.  It felt squeaky clean.  They recommend to do this between your co-washing your hair. When I touch my hair  it felt so clean, just like my mother said.  So go try this shampoo or any clarifying shampoo.

Hey ladies, so today was my wash day.  I wanted to to show you all what I been using in my hair, since I have went natural.  I was so scared to go natural.  I didn't know how my hair will look? Will my hair curl? what will people say about my hair. One day I just got the courage and said F everyone and did it.

The 1st time I put the product in my hair, some of it curl really good.  You know the girls I am talking about.  Those little ringlets.  The other part of my hair was fighting back. I know it takes time for your hair to get used to being natural.  Not being press or flat iron.   Now its been 3 months and things are going well. I will show you my hair and some of the hairstyles that i rock, in a future post.
