I'm an Afro Glitz Web Award Nominee!

Lovelies - I am an Afro Glitz Web Award nominee for "Best Hair Blog"!!!  There are some other really great hair blogs that are nominated as well, so the catch is that the category  must be narrowed down to 6.  Please vote for me if you enjoy the content and what I'm doing.  I truly appreciate the love and support!!!

10 Day Veggie + Fruit Cleanse

I have been a busy bee preparing for my move to Ithaca and my last day at work (YAY - 10 days and counting)!  In the meantime, I am doing a 10 day veggie and fruit cleanse with my boyfriend's cousin.  She suggested that this would be a good time for me to cleanse my system and get ready for the next big step in my life - business school.  So I already don't eat meat (yes - I do cheat every once in a while), so I am hoping this won't be too bad, but I will miss carbs (oh how I love carbs)!  I'm sure my hips won't miss them!

This morning I had a great mint fruit salad full of watermelon, pineapple and grapes and I am pretty full.  For lunch, I made my favorite soup - Vegetarian Ribollita, but without the sourdough bread, cannellini beans and Pecorino-Romano cheese.  So basically it is a hardy cabbage soup.  For dinner, I am going to have some yukon gold potatoes and steamed veggies and maybe a strawberry watermelon smoothie if i get hungry after that.

I'm curious to see if this will have any effect on my hair.  Granted it is only 10 days, but I am still wondering if I will notice any kind of change in how my hair looks and feels.

My hair is still growing very fast which is great because I hope to be able to cut out the rest of the color at the end of this year.  I am still adding coconut oil to my deep conditioner and my hair is loving it.

**Let me clarify.  Yes potatoes are carbs, but they can be used in moderation in the plan that I am following.  You are only supposed to resort to eating potatoes or other root veggies after you have eaten steamed or raw veggies and are still hungry.  I know me and I will be hungry tonight, so I will be having some potatoes lol.***
