Book Review: The Glamtwinz Guide To Longer, Healthier Hair

I don't know if it just me, but the weekends go by a little too fast lol! I look up and it is time to get ready for the school and work week. We got a lot of wedding stuff done over the weekend and of course I'll update you guys in the wedding series. Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? Today I am going to be doing a book review and it has been a while since I've posted one.

If are you are not familiar with this duo, they are an Atlanta based YouTube sensation that is famous for their long locks of hair and makeup tutorials. They recently wrote a book that gives an insight on how they achieved their hair length. I was really interested in reading this book to learn more natural hair tips and tricks plus I wanted to know how to get long hair too lol.

It did take me a little while to read through this book but I'm glad I finished it cover to cover. The GlamTwinz get so many questions on how they grew their hair so long, how long did it take and so on. I am a fan because it is so long, beautiful and healthy. It shows when they do hair tutorials that they really take great care of their hair and take so much pride in keeping it healthy.

I really love how they broke down everything that they do from washing, deep conditioning and trimming their hair. Each chapter is dedicated to explaining each process in their hair routine which is great so you don't get confused and can concentrated on each step. They gave some really great analogies on how important these hair care steps are. For example, they compared hair to growing a plant. That plant needs water, sunlight and soil in order to thrive and grow. If you don't water the plant, keep it in the dark and don't have healthy soil, that plant will not survive. Just like the plant, you hair needs those important things (well not soil lol) in order to be healthy and grow. I like that they stress the importance of taking care of the inside of your body as well as the outside.

The only thing is I wish they gave some product recommendations. I know that may of been a little hard due to people running out, trying the product and complain about not liking it or not working. There may be people who do not watch YouTube or know who the GlamTwinz are. When they are reading this book, they may just be starting on their natural hair journey or may not know what products are good to start with or try out. It would of been nice to see a few.

What I really love about this book is that they stressed the importance of being patient. They stressed it throughout the book but at the end they really broke down how important patience is. I would know that first hand with my hair journey lol. There were so many times I wanted to give up and not want to deal with my hair. I had to be patient to learn about my hair, know what it likes and doesn't like, how it reacts to certain products and just how to work with it. I find being patient the most important thing when starting on a natural hair journey or any hair journey. Long, healthy hair does not happen overnight. You have to take the necessary steps in order to achieve that goal you have in mind,

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. I learned a lot of great tips and tricks that I can apply to my hair routine. It was very well written and proud of the GlamTwinz for writing a successful book. I highly recommend this book. Honestly, this book isn't just for those on a natural hair journey, I feel anyone who wants to grow longer and healthier hair can benefit from this book.

So that is it for this book review. What is the last book you read? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday.

I tried the new Cascara Latte from Starbucks and I liked it. 

Yesterday we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and wanted to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from him. I'm so thankful for his fight for everyone to be treated as equals and fairly. Also for showing us there are peaceful and non violent ways to fight for justice.

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward".  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the book and have learned tips from them on your own natural hair journey! Its too bad they didn't tell you exact products because I'm sure it would be easier for you.

    1. Yea it would of been but overall a really good book. Thanks for reading Tanya!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
