Organizing the Blog

Hey curls,

You may notice that things are movings around. I am organizing the blog before I change and update the design. I would love your input of what you like and don’t like and also what you would like to see, mostly in terms of design but also content. I want to clean things up and make navigation as simple as possible. There is nothing worse than a cluttered website but I still want some spice so I won’t go to minimal. Thanks for all the love especially those that have subscribed either email, facebook, or twitter! Continue to stay tuned and thanks for being patient on this journey. I’ve been learning as I go but this year I want take things to the next level. I have lots of goals for this blog the biggest is posting on the regular. I can’t believe I only posted 3 times last year. My goal for this year is to post 300 or more times. One thing I don’t want to stop is posting while I get things in order. Sometimes I get caught up with the appearance and neglect posting but I am working on both. The mission of this blog is to promote self-love. It started with my personal journey to loving my hair but it has turned to me finding joy and passion in several areas of my life and I plan to share that with you all. Enjoy your weekend!

XOXO,

Angelique

Coming Soon….

So as you can see I decided against featuring the 30 day of products. Since I haven’t tried all of them I didn’t want to encourage any PJism (product junky). So instead I will just feature ones I have tried and ones that have been reviewed by my fav and most trustworthy bloggers and vloggers…

I have some good stuff in store for you this week so look out for posts on:

  • Avocado Hair Mask and Deep Treatment
  • the Benefits of Avocado Oil
  • My Search For a New Stylist
  • Review and Q&A with Deneen at Sedwick’s Salon and Spa in Chicago
  • My Winter Reggie and Staples
  • My Official Hair Update and Length Check
  • Product feature: Qhemet Biologics
  • Linkworthy: Best Natural Blogs and Youtube Channels of the Week

Thanks so such for the continued support through my hiatus/neglect of this blog…for the latest updates for me on Twitter @SuiteAngelique (for lots of randomness) and @DiamondsCurls…If you have any questions or suggestions email me at DiamondsCurls@gmail.com and don’t forget to like the fan page of Facebook.

Much Love and Peace!!!

ReLaunch Coming this month…

I’m now on Twitter @DiamondsCurls. Stay tuned for the latest updates. I’m in the process of cleaning up the site so you may notice some things moving around but my goal is a clean and simple finished product. I will do an official update of my hair and my Halloween hair ideas and in November I will be featuring 30 products for each day of the month. My inner PJ couldn’t resist. Until then much luv….

XOXO,

Angelique

I Haven’t Forgotten About You…

I know I have been neglecting this blog due to my own hair crisis, computer problems, and no time but that will be changing in the next few days. I am currently working on the organization of the blog so you will notice changes daily. I am no longer worrying about the layout and design I will leave that to a professional. (Looking for a graphic designer now some for now this template will have to make due) It’s time to take this blog to the next level so I will focus more on posting daily and bring you what you want. So thanks for the continued love from the stats it seems that you are still reading and that’s a ton of motivation for me!!!!

Peace Luv and all things Curly,

Angelique

Bare with me……

Ok so a few weeks has turned into some months but I will start posting this week again and do a length check. I’m still working on a new layout for the blog but there is no need to hold out on all things curly 🙂

Under CURLstruction…

I know you are wondering where on Earth did this girl disappear to this time. There is no way I would leave you hanging with V-day tomorrow. I’m working on a new design and organization of this blog so bear with me the next few weeks. Feel free to leave suggestions as well.

P.S. Stay tuned for some giveaways, contest, and Valentine hair treats!
