So back in February I randomly cut off all my relaxed hair one night. I don't know why I did it, probably boredom honestly but after I finished I had about an inch of hair left. The next day I weaved it (I know, make no sense lol). This was the second time I attempted to go natural. The first time, I tried to do a long term transition and just slowly cut off my relaxed ends, but after a few months I got so frustrated that I ended up relaxing it again AND cutting it all off. This time I didn't transition at all..I just cut it. The last 7 months I've been wearing weaves and braids and just decided that I would love to start wearing it out. Let me tell you....I am utterly in love and totally obsessed with my hair. Below is how it looks...not bad for being almost bald 7 months ago lol.
My hair straightened
My hair curly (Rod Set)
P.S I am updating my Hair Regimen on the site right now! Can't wait to see what it will look like in a year..super excited!!!

My birthday this year was EPIC...There is just no other word to describe it. Every year I do the most lol and usually celebrate for a month and this year was no different. I started off with a pre birthday celebration with my friends in Miami which I recently posted about. A few days before my birthday, my family threw me a surprise party. They decided to do it early because my grandmother is a nurse and had to work so they did it on her day off. Then the day before my birthday (my actual birthday is July 25) I had a really nice dinner at Umberto's which is here on Long Island. The next day, my birthday, I had an event but afterwards I had dinner at my favorite restaurant Philippe's and then went to Suite 55 with my friends where we had food, a few bottles of champagne, and Hookah. I love it! The following night, we went to W.I.P and this is where the epicness reached it's peak. Check out this video just to get an idea
A day later, I had another birthday party at Zachary's here on Long Island (I had a lot of fun!). The following week my friend Crystal threw me a BBQ at her house where we sat around, ate, drank and chatted it up all day into the night. Finally a few days later, my friend Eddie invited me and my friends to celebrate my Bday at his event, First Fridays at Greenhouse and again, I had a great time. I have to admit though that by my last party, I was utterly exhausted and I was so over my birthday lol. Here are a few pics.
Cake and balloons from my surprise party my family threw for me (oh I'm not 23, I switched the candles lol)

We shot a video in my boutique, Samantha's Consignment about 2 years ago (the actual video is on my Youtube Page). This was a cute behind the scene clip that my videographer Chuck Holliday recently sent me :)

Last month my friends and I went down to Miami for my pre birthday celebration and I had such a great time. We stayed at the Chesterfield Hotel right on Collins and I was pleasantly surprised. I've never stayed at a boutique hotel before (because I am really anal when it comes to hotels...like really, really anal!)..but this one was nice and was just a block from the beach. Unfortunately the hotel doesn't have a pool but thankful we also got a hookup at the fabulous Loew's Hotel a few blocks away and were able to use their pool for the duration of our trip. We went to a couple of parties, ate all day and all night and just had a fabulous time. I was very, very happy and it was the perfect way to kick off the best birthday that I ever had :)...Here are a few pics!
With the girls at the airport super early in the am!!
