How to Cheat a Holiday Meal

It’s that time of year again–Thanksgiving, Christmas caroling, presents, and oh the food! If you’re hosting a holiday party or, like me, have a large number of family members coming in for the holidays, preparing that holiday dinner may seem daunting.  I know I had grand plans of creating an elaborate menu from scratch.  But . . . 16 is a large number of mouths to feed and I don’t really want to spend the entire day cooking.  So . . . here’s a holiday meal hack that will save you on time and keep your sanity in check.

A Natural Hair Inspired Halloween

Happy Halloween, Everyone!!! The costumes are out, the vibe is spooky, and fall has finally arrived in Virginia! With all the costume ideas out there this year, I decided to not only have some fun at work, but to work a costume around a fabulous protective style: Paying homage to the iconic Janelle Monae, a little extra “umph” to the classic pomp transformed this work look into a perfectly fashionable (and work-appropriate) Halloween statement. How are you rocking your natural hair this Halloween?

In this review, I use the full line and we’ll see whether it lives up to its claims!
