Get Ready With Me TWA Chit Chat

This short hair journey is almost one years old!  I can't believe that I will celebrate one year since cutting off my locks in June.

It has been wild, with newbie vibes all over again as I learn barber shop lingo and that one should definitely be paying attention to what the barber is doing with his clippers.  I'll never forget when my reward for texting and browsing Instagram was the bomb hair cut I never asked for.

Live and learn.

In this video I share my plans for the future and reminisce about my locks while doing the simplest make up application EVER because it's all about the hair.



  1. Mocha Mom, I can't thank you enough for the wisdom you share! We have six kiddos through adoption (four born in China, our two youngest born here in the US). My youngest is a girl and I have been on a steep learning curve ever since she came home 21-mos. ago! Several of our kiddos were sick over the weekend, so we stayed home from church Sunday morning. With some extra time on my hands (I am a homeschooling mom like you, so I NEVER have "extra" time) I was determined to NAIL (finally) my cornrowing technique! I have had the mechanics down for about a year, but I could see by watching many (SO many!) videos on YouTube that my hand positioning wasn't optimal. My braids weren't as neat/clean as they should be and I knew it was also taking me longer than it should. Well (Praise the LORD!) I found your cornrow tutorial and watched it. And watched it. And watched it again. And then again. And I turned my iPad around so your hands were facing the same way as mine. And it was so helpful to have you showing the technique on a little bit bigger section of hair than normal, and your hints and comments along the way. I finally got it down! THANK YOU!!!! When I cornrowed my daughter's whole head a couple of weeks ago it took me about 3.5 hours. When I did it after watching your video, it took me just less than 2 hours! I thank daughter thanks you! Blessings on you and your precious family! Love, Joli

  2. You should see the big smile on my face. Your comment made my day! You are very welcome!!! Thanks for taking the time to let me know how helpful the video was for you.
