It’s Big Hair Tuesday! Since I didn’t have time to deep condition my hair last night, I used oils (just blended stuff together) Butter than Love Pudding then Butter than Love Whipped. Air dried for a couple of hours then sat under a hooded dryer for another hour. Hair in a bun last night. This morning I fluffed. Visit WonderCurl.com to learn about the super moisturizing products.

Curly hair is still prone to split ends plus single strand knots.

DIY Custom Chalkboard

I have obsessions with a few things: mason jars, the color pink and chalkboards. After realizing that I can easily make my own chalkboard paint (read how here) I knew that I was in for a lot of trouble. I was so close to painting an entire wall with my custom chalkboard paint, and then I remembered that I am just renting, so that would have been a very bad idea. Instead, I decided to make this chalkboard instead.

You will need:
chalkboard paint
paint brush
wall art or plywood
washi tape (optional for borders)

I picked up this lovely wall art from Target at the clearance rack one day. I bought it with the intent to paint over it to create my custom chalkboard.

You want to do 2-3 coats evenly with your custom chalkboard paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats. I did 3 coats to cover the drawing on the wall art.

Once the paint was dry, I added this pretty washi tape along the borders to create a frame. You then want to use the side of your chalk to ‘condition’ your brand new chalkboard.

Conditioning your chalkboard will keep any writing from burning onto your new canvas. I also like that it gives the chalkboard a vintage look.

Now, what to write?

Nothing but blue skies! #beautifulday

#ThrowbackThursday and #Today. This is the first time my hair has been blown out in over 4 years.

I had to whip something quick for lunch since I didn’t cook dinner last night. Sautéed shredded brussel sprouts using olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper. Sprinkled vegan “Parmesan” (ground cashew, nutritional yeast, garlic powder & salt).
