Atlanta Sisterlocks Consultants Refresher Class -I'll Be There

I'm taking a SISTERLOCKS Consultants Refresher Class next month and I can't wait. It will be my second refresher. They are a great opportunity for consultants to review and refine their technique, meet the most wonderful Master Sisterlocks consultants and get answers to niggling questions(especially troubleshooting). We also get to make new friends. In addition to being able to sit in for the complete training sessions, you can have tailor made refresher classes where you can focus on a specific aspect of the Sisterlocks technique. And all for the price of only $75.00
I count myself particularly lucky this time because Dr. Joanne Cornwell herself will be participating in some of the training. I think every consultant/consultant trainee should take regular refresher classes.
For those who have had their Sisterlocks for more than 6 months, don't forget that there is a retightening class available next month during the training session. Sign up on the website now if you are a DIYer- but ok it with your consultant first.
Lastly everyone don't forget the amazing photo shoot opportunity.
In case you might not be aware of it, Sisterlocks Home Office is setting up professional photo shoots for all Sisterlocks wearers for a really reasonable price. Details can be found on the Sisterlocks Home Page. The photo shoot will be at the same location as the Atlanta Consultants training. Go onto the site directly and fill out forms if you are interested. Hope to see many Atlanta Sisterlocks wearers there.

Me and my gals

Here are a few shots of me and the girls. Nina's hair(photos 1 and 3 ) is settling nicely. She's had her Sisterlocks for about 3 months now. I retightened both girls' heads last weekend (the first for Nina since she had them put in so you can imagine the growth) and will post photos of those when I can get her to sit still. Soila's hair is 16 months. These photos were taken last month.

Freestyling -2

Low maintenance. I must admit that for me was a key attraction in considering Sisterlocks. What's easier than putting a scarf over your head at night, sleeping then simply running your fingers through in the morning? This wavy freestyle braidout has held since I washed my hair on Sunday night, braided it into about a dozen plaits and removed the braids Monday morning. I did wear my Tomokatwists to vary it for a couple of days but otherwise nothing else. What freedom!!

I've been tagged(thanks Knotsnlocks)but oh dear, although I'm terribly pleased, I'm scratching my head to think of 6 non important/quirky/random facts or habits of mine to share and to find anyone who has not been tagged already. goes...
1. I love sea food, especially lobsters and giant prawns, cherries and creme brulee.
2. My fantasy would be an eight week-long world cruise with my hubby, kids, mum and sisters(and their kids and husbands) stopping in the Caribbean, South Pacific and Italy(with a stop in Milan for shopping). No diets, no work, no schedules and unlimited spending money.
3. The Chronicles Of Narnia are my absolute favorite books in the world. Can't wait till Prince Caspian comes out in May.
4. I talk to my 2 sisters almost every day(they are are my best friends). We are separated by thousands of miles but thank God for skype, or there'd be a hell of a phone bill to pay.
5. I'm a fan of the tv series "24" even though I find Jack Bauer loathsome. I don't have the patience to watch it week by week, I buy a season at a time and stay up all night for 3 days in a row to finish it.
6. I love board games like scrabble, monopoly, draughts and ludo.

1. link to the person that tagged you Knotsnlocks - done. Thanks for tagging me.
