People will write you off. Let them!! They’ll read about you later...😏

Someday, someone will call back to a time when your connection with them made an impact on their life. Whether they know you personally, or feel connected to you through the small boxes on this platform, they will recall how their interactions with you made them feel and how your presence made a difference in their world!

Today, my heart is still heavy mourning the loss of a true inspiration @kyrzayda_. It took me several days to cycle through the entire emotional process from disbelief, devastation, anger, hurt and sadness to reflection, peace, acceptance and hope. To know Kyrzayda was to love her, there was no in between, no grey areas at all! My love and admiration for this beautiful soul began in 2015 when I discovered her account! I fell in love with her style, passion, dedication and consistency! After stalking her page for months, I reached out to her through a DM for blogger advice. Her response was more than I ever expected and marked the beginning of an insta-friendship that we would maintain for 2 years before meeting in person. When we finally met in NY, I recall us both bursting into laughter when we saw each other shocked that we were both like a cool 5’2... we joked about how we like to shoot from low angels to look taller and how we thought the other was at least 5’7!! In preparing this post, I couldn’t help but go back and read our many DM and text message exchanges where she constantly offered words of encouragement, advice, suggestions and resources. All I could do was read and smile, feeling blessed to have known such a remarkable woman!
We all had the pleasure of having a front row seat to her life loving her style and hair, but inspired by her passion and hustle. And that never changed!!! Watching Kyrzayda fight that fight everyday and allow us all to be present for her journey represents the strength and dedication this women had! She will continue to inspire us as women to follow our dreams, push through adversity, overcome obstacles, shatter glass ceilings and never every give up on what we love! “Go, do it, don’t wait for another day, or another hour, or another time. Go and do it now.” -Kyrzayda #fckcancer #kyrzaydarodriguez

If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask for it, the answer is always no. If you don’t take that first step, you’re always in the same place... just go and figure it all out along the way!! 💃🏾💃🏾 Jacket by @houseoflayllah

When it comes to styling curly hair I’ve learned that less products = more volume!! I’ve been using the @SmoothNShineUSA Curl Defining Mousse, Styling Custard and Curl Defining Gel to style my curly unit after my wash and have been getting more defined, voluminous and bouncy curls since making the switch from my old regimen. Whether you’re styling your natural curly hair or your curly extensions like me, this line delivers a quality finish that leaves your curls soft and fluffy. I’m thinking about adding a few more of their products to my line up! ♥️ Grab @SmoothNShineUSA for yourself today from @FamilyDollar and tell me what you think!!! #SmoothNShine, #FamilyDollar, #LoveItEveryDayEveryWay #Ad

It seriously takes a village to keep my curly unit nourished, moisturized and bouncy. Most curl products I use leave my hair filmy, weighed down and sticky, so I‘ve been on the hunt for a new regimen! My curlfriends @SmoothNShineUSA wanted me to give their line a try and sent me a few styling products to use as a part of my wash ‘n go routine..... and I’m officially in love. The beautiful thing is you can grab this affordable line of products at @FamilyDollar. After my wash, I used the spray bottle to re-wet my hair and saturated my curls in the lightweight @SmoothNShineUSA Curl Defining Mousse to define, add volume and help prevent frizz. I scrunched the curls to help work the mousse in before applying the Styling Custard which promotes 24 hour curl definition, while moisturizing & conditioning my hair to help keep it soft and bouncy. I brushed the custard through and scrunched the hair again to better form the curls. I finished off with the Curl Defining Gel to get that flexible hold I love when rocking this style. To speed up the drying process and add volume while drying, I used the diffuser and am in love with the finished product.. lightweight bouncy defined curls with NO filmy residue!! #SmoothNShine, #FamilyDollar, #LoveItEveryDayEveryWay #Ad
