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.


~**Drea Notes**~

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!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
