NBR Hair Extensions

Okay mamas, this one goes out to you. Particularly working moms.

I wanted to share about some difficulties my kids and I are currently experiencing, and how we’re navigating such a pivotal time inside their lives… Because maybe you can relate. Did you know as a parent that you have to preregister and apply for schools THIS early if your child starts school for the first time in August? I did not know this until a fellow mom told me. So as Kingston turned five earlier this week, this is the year he will start kindergarten… and let me tell y’all… having to find a school for him has been very tumultuous. Not only have I been looking at schools for him, but am now having to figure out what to do with Houston as they will now have completely different schedules.

When December becomes January… January then has to become December.

Huh? I know, it sounds confusing, but let me explain. Every year my November into December looks exactly the same. It’s all about goal-setting and prepping for the new year. My goal-setting has become so regimented that it’s almost like breathing. I don’t even have to really think about it, it’s just in the plan and I set aside time for it at the end of every year. You would think that would mean that nothing could keep me from sticking to my schedule…

Well, this year went a little bit differently. Typically at the beginning of November I hand out goal packets to my entire team and I give both them and myself about 60 days to go through their goal-setting and really reflect on the upcoming year. THIS November, I traveled to Laguna for two separate trainings, and was gone for just about 10 days right before the Thanksgiving holiday. It was my first time on stage at an NBR Extensions Convention as a platform artist, teaching to everyone in attendance. Talk about a whirlwind where I did literally nothing else but breathe extensions. Then as soon as I returned the Thanksgiving holiday was underway and before I knew it, it was December. Half of my typical goal-planning time was gone.

December rolled in just as full of hustle and bustle as November had been. Before I could even realize, December took on a very January-ish feel. Newness was happening constantly, I decided to buy a house, and it felt very much like one chapter of my life was closing as the next opened. I knew throughout the midst of everything that I could force myself to sit down and knock out my goals worksheets, but it kind of defeats the purpose if you don’t take the time to really reflect and focus while going through the process. I decided to break my routine for the sake of the routine and push off the goal-planning until I was settled into my new home.

The month finished up even more chaotic than it began as I closed on my house on December 28th, and was set to move in on the same day… Until the movers refused to move me in the pouring rain and I got stuck in limbo between two houses. After staying with a friend for two days we finally got everything moved and the past week has consisted of slowly putting my life back together.

Thus my January is about to become my December. I plan to take the next 30 days to reflect, plan, and work through my goal-planning for the rest of the year. With the chaos behind me, I feel like I can finally start the year in a place of peace, even if it takes a few weeks into the year to get there. This whole experience has reminded me that it’s okay to take a step back and course correct and try something different if your typical routine isn’t working for you. It can be a temporary course correction to get you through a crazy time, or it can be something that you shift permanently.

Either way, it’s okay to change things up and move forward differently. Even if that means swapping out your Decembers for Januarys and vice versa. Happy New Year, my friends! Stay tuned for more as the Mot Blog gets back on schedule… 😉

When it comes to being healthy, we all know there are two main categories—what you eat, and how you exercise. Typically, I have a pretty good routine for both, but I got knocked off my game recently and it led to me having a pretty huge realization. What is this miraculous new knowledge? All the little things that comprise my routine actually turn out to be what makes the biggest impact on my daily health and wellbeing. It’s not groundbreaking information per se, but when you really truly understand the value of each individual part contributing to the results as a whole, it hits home.

From Blonde to Bronde: The subtle shift into deeper color

A couple of weeks ago I told you all about my favorite fall trends, and today I wanted to dive a little deeper into one of the color trends I mentioned. It’s been around for a couple of years now, but it’s become more and more popular and it’s easy to see why. BRONDE is the perfect blended goodness of brunette and blonde. It’s not dark enough to be considered brunette, but it’s also not light enough to still be considered blonde. It most often fades from a more brunette root into blonder ends.

There’s one thing that I absolutely have to have in my life every day.

You might think it’s exercise, chocolate, or even hair extensions, but it’s something far simpler. FUN. It may sound crazy to talk about incorporating fun into my daily life as an adult, but it’s so necessary. You know I’m all about some personal development, getting shit done, and slayinggggg all the hairs… but I need to have a great time doing all of that as well.

Never did I ever think I would join the 22” Club. You all know that for most of the time I’ve offered extensions as a service, I’ve had a pixie… and even when I started wearing extensions I started off with a lob. It’s grown ever longer, but I really thought I would try these 22s for a few days and then cut them back to my previous length. Man was I wronggg. I am absolutely ADORING my 22” life. To the point where I keep asking myself why I haven’t been wearing this length all along.

Wake Up Warrior

WOW

“Wow” was the overwhelming thought in my mind following my recent experience at the first ever Warrior Women event last week. When I first signed up for the event I didn’t really know what to expect, and even if I had thought I’d known—it still would have blown me away completely. The event was hosted by Danielle and Garrett White, the creator of NBR and her husband who created “Wake Up Warrior” a men’s retreat. Together they decided to adapt the Wake Up Warrior idea into a format for women. Unlike every other time I’ve traveled to Laguna, this time had nothing to do with hair and everything to do with leveling up your life. And they chose to do that by challenging us to dig deeper than I thought possible within a three day retreat.
