Since moving into our new space, I’ve been pretty obsessed about decorating and really making our apartment super homey. I think my Pinterest obsession has fed into this a lot too! LOL! My latest project was to find a vanity/makeup table. The most popular table that everyone usually gets is the Malm dressing table by Ikea. I ALMOST got that table but I wasn’t to hyped about paying $150 for it. That’s like me paying for another desk! So I decided to just wait and then we randomly found this cute desk in Office Depot on Monday. It was literally a random find because I never go into Office Depot!
The desk is by Aitra and it’s the color changing desk. It originally retails for $89 but I got it on clearance for $44 plus tax. The frame is black metal and the top is wood with a glass top. The desk comes with interchangeable sheets in chevron and solid colors to change the base of your desk under the glass. I chose to keep it black and white to match the theme of our bedroom, grey, white and black.
I’m still working on my vanity area but I love where it’s going. A new chair, some accessories and we’re good to go! I’ll give you guys an update once I’m done.
It’s been a while y’all! All summer to be exact! Life’s been pretty busy on me end, work, moving, ministry… It’s been a lot to juggle but I love it. In the mist of it all I’ve really been thinking about my blog and how it can grow as I grow. When I first started TheHaiRazor it was ALL about hair, I mean it’s called TheHaiRazor, lol! As the years have gone by “TheHaiRazor” name became more than just a blog, it became me. Folks will call me TheHaiRazor before they even call me by my first name, which is Ayana, for those who didn’t know. Anywho, there are so many things outside of just hair that I love to share with you all, things about life, health, and of course beauty. At first I was a bit scared because folks try to put you in a box and when you jump out of it, stomp on it, then set it on fire, they act real funny about your actions and the change you made.
I really want TheHaiRazor to be about all things women, all things beauty, all things life! Let’s focus on the right things, working on us from the inside, out and not just the superficial icing on the cake. So with all that being said, I’m gonna do me, I’m a vegetarian on a quest to better health, and working on me from the inside, out. I want to share tips, tricks, everything about life with you! I pray you enjoy and continue to ride with me…. TheHaiRazor!
The summer months are fun but can be so damaging to your hair. With the sun, pools, and our carefree attitude, our hair often feels dry around this time. I have color so sometimes it’s like a double whammy! To help moisturize my hair during the summer months, I of course deep condition. But instead of just my favorite conditioner, I also add coconut oil. Y’all know how much I LOVE coconut oil! It really does wonders! Sometimes I will put straight coconut oil on my hair before I shampoo and let it sit for a few hours or over night. Other times I will add the coconut oil to one of my favorite conditioners ( Paul Mitchell Super Charged or Clear Shea Butter Conditioner, purchase HERE ), let it sit for about 20-30 minutes then rinse, mold and style. Either way, my hair feels softer and more moisturized. I know we can be very busy and on the go in the summer but please take time to care for your hair! XOXO
