Brown Girls Adventures with Mickey & Shamu!!

We took a family vacation last week and I thought I would share a few pictures of Brown Girls Adventure with Micky and Shamu!


Our first stop was a Jekyll Island! Brown Girl had a great time swimming with her cousins. Unfortunately, she got sun burn while swimming, but it didn't stop her from having fun! Thank God it wasn't painful for her. We certainly won't go without the sunscreen again!!

The next stop was Orlando, Florida to visit Sea World and Magic Kingdom. She has already been to Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

If you've never been, it is an awesome but VERY expensive trip! BE prepared to take out a second mortgage especially if you have more than 2 children....geesh!!

 *Side note* I suggest you take your kids between the ages of 5-10. Ages 8-10 are perfect because...

1. They are independent (can eat and go to the bathroom alone, no diapers and bottles) 
2. They will remember it (won't be sleep in a stroller) and 
3. They will appreciate it more (won't be crying for a bottle or because they are hot and irritated!)
4. Last but not least, They can wait in those LLLOOOONNNGG lines. The waits can be more than 1.5 hours for some of the attractions.

For the life of me I don't understand why people take infants to Disney...but it ain't my money so I'll move on....... The second stop was Sea World!


Sea World reminded me a lot of the Aquarium in Atlanta. It is a ocean adventure. They have all types of sharks, sting rays, dolphins, whales etc. We had a great time at Sea World. We went in July which is the rainiest time for Orlando so they weren't able to do the dolphin or Shamu show due to lightening but we still had a great time and were able to experience the sea otters show.


Brown Girls 2 oldest brothers weren't able to come (they are grown 20 & 23) maybe next time!



Is Brown Girl Mixed? This picture should answer that question! LOL!!


Brown Girl is scared to death of Jelly Fish but she's always eager to see them!


Next Stop.....Magic Kingdom











In my opinion, you need at least 2 days in each park to really experience them fully with the exception of Sea World. Sea World can be covered in one full day. I hope you enjoyed looking at our pictures.

A video of how I cared for her hair while on vacation is coming soon!

4th of July Hair & Outfit




Hi Brown Girls!

I hope you all had an amazing 4th of July! I just want to share with you what my daughter wore for the 4th along with how her hair is braided for the remainder of her summer break!

Yes, I said this is how her hair will be for the remainder of her summer break because she goes back to school on August 1, which I know is super early!

I decided to braid it up because we will be going to the beach soon and I ain't doing no hair! I will record how I maintain her hair after summing etc because I get that question a lot. So stay tuned for the hairstyle tutorial and the summer swim hair maintenance video's coming soon! This hairstyle took me about 5 hours to do.

The outfit is by Apple's Eye Designs and I purchased the shoes from a local Burlington for only $5.99!











For those of you who like to sew, the top is Simplicity 1674 and the Skort is McCall M6918.








What did you do for the 4th? How did you wear your hair and nails? Share your pictures with us on Instagram/@Browngirlshair or Facebook!

Side Cornrows Tutorial on Natural Girl







This is a cute and super easy style that will last for at least a week!

First make a cornrow around her edges. I like to do this to keep her edges neat. This step is optional.

Next make a slanted part and cornrow the hair to the edge and stop. I put a hair clip on to keep the cornrow from unraveling.

Repeat the step above all the way down.

Last take the remaining hair and cornrow it down to the end!

That's it! A quick and simple style that you can repeat all summer long!

Twists~Styled Wet & Air Dried







This is another twists style that I did on her hair while it was wet then I let it air dry. I washed and conditioned her hair with TRESemme' shampoo & conditioner. I used As I Am Twist Defining Cream to style her hair.



This style was done 2 weeks before the wedding. You can read that post HERE.

I choose to do it because I knew that I was going to use heat on her hair for the wedding and I didn't want to use any heat on it at the time of this style.

This style was done on June 1, 2014. The wedding was on June 15, 2014.

You see a more detailed video on How I do Twist HERE and How I Maintain them HERE.

What products do you use to do your daughter's twists?
