Lava honey 

I have one more week left before I’m done taking my antibiotic  and numbing medication for my esophagus burn. Remember I almost died last Monday for chugging hot melted honey in a tea cup with cinammon and a little bit of water.  I did not realize how hot it was and the water had spilled and evaporated in the microwave. I learned that you are not supposed to heat honey in the microwave.  You are supposed to pour the honey after the water has been heated. I still feel sore and it still hurts to eat or drink. I hope I look like a super model when I’m done with all this food and pain drama. The only way I can describe my freak accident is that it felt like hot lava was going down my throat😭😭

Hot tea

You won’t believe what happened to me this past Monday. I heated water with lots of honey and cinnamon in the microwave. I forgot that I had already reheated it…I took the cup out the microwave and cleaned up some of the water that spilled out the cup..I was rushing to go off to work and took a big chug of the cup. I wasnt paying attention and did not realise how hot the honey was. As soon as I swallowed the big gulp of honey tea I felt like lava was melting my insides. I started coughing and screaming and crying for dear life. I threw myself on the  bed crying in agony. I barfed and was in pain the rest of the day. Tuesday the next day I sleeped in bed all day in misery. It hurts to eat or drink, it feels like a torch turns on every time I place food in my mouth. The next day which was Wednesday I come to work in pain and tell my client what happened. She encourages me to go the doctors and so I did after I was done with her hair.  I went to see my doctor he sent me to Urgent care. I had to get two shots on my buttocks, antibiotics and a numbing medication.  I am on my way to pick up the antibiotics when I’m done typing this. I was placed on a liquid diet and can only eat baby food, soups or gello for the next couple of weeks.  I can’t laugh I can’t sleep..everything I do hurts my esophagus and stomach.  This was by far the worse pain even worse than my surgery last year. I don’t wish this on anyone. The only good thing that will come of this is weight loss. This experience taught me to slow down, take it easy, go to bed early and don’t rush. You can loose your life by not paying attention. I don’t know that I could ever drink teas or coffee again. I have to go back to the doctors in two days. It’s affecting my work performance. I can’t move freely. I’m  tired and exhausted. There is no time to give up now.  I have to many clients this weekened and bills to pay and hair extensions to buy😂
Slow down take your time and do it right. Until next time…talk to you later🖑

She told me I could 

I was at the shop till 3 am doing hair listening to tales last night. After I’m done with a client I have to clean up count my money whine down before I take the long trip home. This is Ashley I’ve known her since she was 11 years old. I haven’t seen her since and she hasn’t let anyone touch her hair either.  She told me that I could blog about her drug addiction experience and her stripper days. It all started with pain killer addiction which led her to go as far as injecting other drugs. She was homeless for three years sleeping in alleys, cars or sleeping on people’s sofas. She did three months in jail and was making six hundred dollars a nite as a stripper. She taught me how they are trained not to wear too much perfume, glitter or makeup so that it doesn’t get on the client’s clothes. Most of them are married and the club dont  want drama with their wives. I asked her if good looking men go to the clubs. She said the finer and more handsome they are the more twisted in the head they are. She’s been sober for five years is suffering depression but finally got out that dark lifestyle.  One part of her story that stood out to me was how she was drugged by other strippers the first or second nite she showed up for work. She reminded me how vicious women can be when it comes to competing for money and men. The story goes on but I must go rinse my client now her color is done. 


I made Ashley my new hair model , she’s going to let me try different colors and cuts. I’m so happy she’s alive and well. She’s not bitter or angry at her past, she found love and is happy with a good man that saved her from herself……how does her hair look.  To be continued.  Gotta go!!

Usher 

The talk at the shop this week is Usher.  People are coming up 5 years later after being with him that he gave them herpes. One of the girls suing says she tested negative. I was believing the girl’s story first until I got fixated watching the TMZ videos.  I did research on herpes and it says it takes up to 20 after you’ve been infected to get an outbreak. How can you sue someone 5 years later? I’m sure she’s been with more people since then. This is when I thank God that I’m not famous. I can’t imagine what he’s going through.  People will sale their soul to Satan just to be able to sue someone for money.  

Survivors 

Let me tell you remember last year when I disappeared and I didn’t blog. Well I was in survivor mode. I was homeless in my car for two months. Steve Jobs, Harvey and Carmen Electra were homeless too at one time in their lives.  I don’t feel like a victim I feel  humbled and very greatful for ALL that I have. I won’t go into details on how I ended in the streets..it’s too long of a twisted story. At the time I was sick..I had cancer in the lining of my uterus but I still managed to come to work make my clients laugh and smiled like I always do. I didn’t miss my Christian meetings I missed 3 times the most. I did my makeup, payed bills etc. Some people knew others didn’t. Sometimes I would sneak a load of laundry in the back room at work and my coworkers would find a missing sock and ask me if it was mine ..LOL.  I would just smile and say “Oh! And  grab the sock and stick it in my purse. I would take showers at the gym, do my makeup at Sephora or mac. I was very tired from the lack of sleep. It’s not comfortable sleeping in a small Ford Focus…I knew Jehovah wasn’t going to leave me in the streets forever..I prayed, I cried, I was angry..but at the end he came through for me like he always does.. my childhood friend took me in and left me her apartment fully  furnished, clean, good hot water,comfortable bed. I can’t ask for anything more. I tell my story now because I survived the storm. I look at how pretty Carmen Electra is, how funny and successful Steve Harvey is and all that Jobs accomplished and I’m in awe. You see its not what happens to us but how thankful we are when our circumstances change. Are we going to make the best of it and keep pushing forward towards our dream or are we going to give up? The choice is yours. Be be very thankful for ALL that you have you never know when your coworkers are going to find your socks in the lunchroom 😊😇🤗

Some random lil  girl came into the shop this past Saturday  and told me she found  this wig and gave gave it to me. She told me I could use it on my bald clients. I busted out laughing. .and took it…it reminded me of Shaggy’s hair from Scooby Doo. ..she was very  persistent  and told me to keep it. The other kids that came with her were all laughing and spinning the wig on their  hands like a top…..I can’t use that wig on anyone. .who knows where it’s been.  For all I know this wig might of been used on some crime scene..haha…

Tales of the chair

It’s been a loooooooong  time. Sorry I haven’t been posting I’ve been  venting to my friends instead. I like how we end up laughing our heads off at by the end of the conversation. Client is sitting  with her color. We were just discussing Sonia  Risken. She was a hairstylist  who had two of her husbands killedfor insurance  money. She had a shop in the next city over named Lomita. Google her. This is the stuff that movies  are made of. One of my coworkers use to work in her salon.  First of all killing your spouse  for five thousand  dollars is ludicrous. Number two are you nuts!! There is not enough to money in the world to be going around killing people. Heck if you were short on money open a instagram account  and hustle and network there.  Anyhoo..Sonia ended getting shot by her nephew. I take it she owed him money for the hit he did on her last hubby. So  sad indeed. Suffering is worse than death. She caused a lot of pain to her ex in laws who have to mourn for rest of their lives. ….

I colored my hair a black violet color today. It was time to change my whole attitude.  Behind every dramatic color change or hair cut there is an emotional  change or growth. Not for everyone  but for some of us.
I went through one of the craziest, saddest unexpected change this month. Thank goodness  today this month is over. I don’t want to remember it or relive it. Well time is up! I gotta rinse my client’s hair color now. Chao!

Salon talk

Stuff my clients  and I talk about. Mostly celebrity gossip second relationships. I’m a underpaid  therapist. ..haha…
everyone  wants love but it’s how you go about it. If you keep doing the same thing  expecting different  results. You know the rest ☺…try and conquer yourself by pushing your emotions to the side and take care of you. Notice how your life is fine intil you start catching feelings for someone then you loose yourself. You can’t think straight.  You get brain freezes..you over analize, ..etc..your focuss is all about them.  A dear loved one just got his heart broken like 3 times in the last two years. I try  to explain to him that you can’t show too much too soon. Always telling her he loves her. Flowers, candy, stuffed animals.  Whenever  they talk on the phone she’s always finding fault in him. I try and tell him till I’m black and blue that she’s using him to stroke her ego. Of course. He tells me I don’t know what I’m talking about.  Please  I do know what I’m talking   about. Broken  hearts is  my  rodeo..it doesn’t matter the color the gender it’s a fact that that more you call, text,  and show too much interest something  in the other person’s brain clicks and it tells them that they are all that and a bag of chips. There is NOTHING wrong with showing that there is potential  and that you are interested. What’s wrong is to keep doing  more than you should when they are not responding. It makes you look weak  in desperate even though  you are not. I actually think that the one who opens their heart is the bravest. Weak are the ones running  from  a  good person.  Use balance judgment before you loose your dignity. Dignity and self respect  is all you have. If you don’t have that you have nothing.
