Sweet Home Pensacola...…good to be back in the state where I was born. Although I’m embarrassed that it’s been 5 long years since my last visit, I’m elated to share that I’m here for a good reason, a happy occasion: Uncle Chocolate is getting ordained! So it’s Pastor Chocolate to you… which oddly enough, sounds like a character in the Baptist version of Candy Land. So proud!

The view–

Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home Pensacola...C’mon Grandpa! My goatee was JUST starting to come in!

Sweet Home Pensacola...

Faux Leather Pant- Urban Outfitters
Sweater- Express (old)

Sweet Home Pensacola...
Sweet Home Pensacola...The crew!- Cousins Ethan, Ellison and Evan!

Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home Pensacola...Sweet Home hair post humidity shrinkage… that TIGI Glaze Haze was no match for this panhandle weather. #fail

Sweet Home Pensacola...Oh no she didn’t wear my color! But she can’t be cool as me – I got my stuntin’ shades!


Want full size bottles of CURLS’ new Cashmere Curls + Cashmere Curl Jelly?

Caption that last pic of Boogie… what is she thinking?

Tomorrow, I’ll select three winners! Good luck!

p.s. giveaway tomorrow…stay tuned!
