Hot Town, Summer in the City… (Updates)

Hot Town, Summer in the City... (Updates)

  Check in later!

Pit stopped in St. Louis after the Charlotte meetup to kick it with the fam and to attempt to rest my soul.  I’m still awaiting that full recovery after coming down with a bug last month, and have started yet another round of antibiotics… third times a charm I suppose.  Nothing much else to report… unlike ‘The Hangover Part III’ aka the Orlando meetup, I didn’t miss my flight out the next morning, well I almost did, but we made it and I arrived in STL greeted by Momma’s smiling face with red Gatorade and burnt up hot dogs.  Before I fly out to New Orleans next week, I plan to score some Peach Vess and a box of pork fried rice… maybe even a bag of Red Hot Riplets… and some Imos… *whispers to self* yeah… Imos.

Check out the view-

 I hadn’t washed my hair since the Charlotte meetup and that mess was dry, angry and tangled.  Out of sheer laziness, I raked some Ouidad Hydrafusion through my damp hair (on top of a little Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat), in sections… maybe 10, and allowed to air dry. 
Forgot to add that I added a bit of UltraSheen grease to my ends once dry.

Apparently Boogie feels the need to be a bit more ‘revolutionary’ than Mommy #BabyPowerFist

It’s 110 degrees in St. Louis… we probably could’ve just set these mugs outside for a few minutes and got the same result.

    OMG – so homesick! I tell you no lie – no fried rice tastes like STL Fried rice. I enlisted in the US Navy at age 19, and have been around the country and the taste of STL Fried Rice still whispers to me 30 years later…

    I have found style close to it!


  • Angel54 says:

    Your hair is beautiful…btw-I agree with you on the hot dogs. If they aint burnt I can't eat them. Hope you feel better.

    Beautiful wash and go results, I love that you use grease! I do too and now I dint feel as bad!

  • Pamela says:

    Love your hair, Nikki. Get some rest. Me and my daughters LOVE burnt hotdogs! Everytime hubby grills we make sure to tell him to "burn" some hotdogs for us – LOL!

  • Auset says:

    Like Anon 2:01pm said, yogurt that has live cultures in it will replace the good bacteria in your body that the antibiotics are taking out. You should try So Delicious Culture Coconut Milk Yogurt. Very good. Or Whole Soy.

    I have that same bonnet I wore it last night lol. I usually pineapple if I am tired/lazy I just put it on and I wake up look like marge simpson too. I use my Jane Carter revitalizing leave in as a curl refresher to get my hair down sometimes and fluff as well until I get my desired look.

    I love your hair. You are a true inspiration. Seeking all kinds of encouragement to continue my 4c journey. I'm in STL too and you are right..the hot dogs would have turned out the same in this heat.

  • Pecancurls says:

    Feel better soon Nik. Eat some yogurt or get some probiotics to ward off the yeast infections from the antibiotics. Fight the power Boog!!! Nothin' like some home food to do a body good. πŸ™‚

    @ Curly Nikki. Just as an FYI if you want to export fried rice properly you get it, let it cool down from like 2 hrs and then freeze it for safe travel. I just got back from home wit 2 boxes of special fried rice exported to Cali. Locve the site. A.J.

    Hot dogs & sausages are good grilled but when you burn them that's when the real flavor kicks in. I don't see any other way to eat them, lol. Hope you feel better soon.
