Dec. 2006 Atlanta- new city, new home

It's been simply ages since I last posted. I don't know how or what, but there's been sooo much going on in my life that I NEVER seem to have the time. I have the greatest admiration for bloggers who keep updating regularly. (especially those with kids).
Well, my sisterlocks journey now finds me based in Hot 'Lanta, where my husband has been transferred. We moved here mid-July so it's been all of four months now and I LOVE it!!
Atlanta is soo green and the city is so different from London. The weather has been fab. My sisterlocked twin came to visit for Thanksgiving and we had a wonderful time. Her hair is growing like a weed- so is mine for that matter. I'll post some pics for you. Hurray for sisterlocks.
Now the family is pretty much settled, I'll be looking to start working on getting some sisterlock clients. I've also become an independent beauty consultant with MaryKay cosmetics
  • Amba's MaryKay store
  • Now many of you might have tried MaryKay products in the past but might not have seen their newer lines in skin care and colors. They are the bomb! Please take a look at their website and my personal Marykay link and online store. Call or email if you need anything because you can buy products directly from my store which of course, gets me some income:). MaryKay has a wonderful make-up product line that is great for black skin, although many women just don't know about it.

    OOops! Forgotten one daughter!

    Sorry! I left out one family member in the snow photo I published. Never update your blogs at 2 am.(smile) This is Soila or Lala, as we affectionately call her, in her fairy costume she got for her last birthday(third). I promised her sisterlocks, so my sister and I will put them in for her next month when she comes to visit. Watch out for photos.

    The Family

    The snow photo is of me, my husband Matt and the girls on holiday in Switzerland in February (my Sisterlocks held up!! No hassles).
    Next is me and my twin sister taken in Jan this year(she's also sisterlocked see my last post) in Ghana after our dad passed away. The last photo is our son Tilay and Nina, the youngest, in Paris a couple of weeks ago when we took a short break. So there's the family.
    Yet to come - close-ups of my hair...coming soon...

    The Journey Continues

    So I promised I would do some updating and here I am at 00H15 in the morning trying to do just that. It's been a looong day but guess what? I still love my sisterlocks 33 months old now..
    As I said in my first post, I live in London and have been trying slowly to build up a client base- not easy with three kids(nine, three and one) smile. But it's been great these past nearly two years.
    My routine for my sisterlocks is really simple - freestyle most days. At night I sleep in my LB soc...
    I wash every fortnight because I have really dry hair and put a light application of almond oil on my scalp. Since the winter, I use Sisterlocks reconstructor or moisture cream after every wash to counteract dryness and leave my hair feeling softer. Here are some pics....
    This shows my hair a year ago shortly after the birth of our last daughter Nina Silole. Notice how thick the locks are...they've condensed much more now.
