Happy New Year (English post)

So, another year is upon us, the older I get the faster time flies. Last week, I was just thinking of my boarding school years and how long I thought the semesters were- and they were only 3 freaking months long. It feels like yesterday when I was 17 and all giddy about heading to the U.S as an exchange student, and in the blink of an eye, I’ll be 32 this summer (Geminis stand up!) ok, in 6 months worth of eye blinking, but you get my point. Anyway, this year, I didn’t set up any new year’s resolutions because last year’s was to be punctual (among others) – and well, what had happen was…lol.

So I’m just going to keep it moving this year, no resolutions, hehehe, just try to do things that are good for me and make me happy; enjoy my  family, be helpful to others in any way I can, blog about hair ( I have a ton of stuff in draft) and enjoy my crazy kids- seriously, observing Maya and Ella is like having a psychedelic experience sometimes, and Noah, is just too adorable.

As far as the hair goes, I’m keeping it as simple as possible as Noah takes up all my time- so I just wash, DC, moisturize twist.  No pre-poo, henna treatments, hot oil scalp massages nada. Although I recommend them to you :) I miss giving the hair a treat and will hopefully get back to those in a few more months. What about you? Any new year’s resolutions for your hair or life in general? Let’s share…

Curls curls curls…

About Laxmi

Hello there; thanks for stopping by, my name is Laxmi (Lakshmi is the Hindu pronunciation, but pretty much everyone calls me 'Shimi' for short). I was born and raised in Accra, Ghana (Ashanti tribe) but did most of my 'growing up' (including college) in America; my 2nd adopted home. I moved to Germany in the summer of 2006 and have fallen deeply in love with Germany and Europe as a whole. My husband is German, hence the move to Germany and I am a mom to 3 of the most awesome, beautiful and coolest kids in the world-true story. So in short, I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, natural hair fanatic, music addict (especially '60s and '70s stuff - although my favourite band is TOOL) yoga enthusiast, foodie, dance lover, English teacher, movie nut and entrepreneur in the making :-). My online shop luckycurls.com is a hair product haven for natural curlies. It is a work in progress so check it out and let me know if you notice anything is off and needs to be fixed-while you're filling up your shopping cart of course :) . I started lucky curls because there is very little access to good quality hair products for naturally curly hair in Germany. My blog is mostly about natural hair care, but I will be posting my musings on anything else that I find interesting. I will attempt to post in German- or 'Denglish', is more what it will be. I'm not a licensed beautician, I just love learning and talking about natural hair. Writing in a foreign language is a big adventure for me, so come join me and let's all share in our love for healthy hair :) If you have any questions, just leave a comment here on the blog, e-mail me via laxmi@luckycurls.com or join the facebook page through www.facebook.com/luckycurls for updates and all things hair related.

      Thanks :)I wish you a fantastic 2013 as well. I didn’t announce Noah’s birth on the blog, I really wanted to do a blog post on it, but i just never got around to doing it. I did put up a picture on the lucky curls FB page though;that’s all I could manage,lol.
