90s Inspired Hairstyle | Buns on Loc’d Hair

Almost 2 years into my loc journey and I feel like ive master the styles. I feel would look cute on my face with this length of locs lol. So I took it back way back to my favorite era which is the 90s and googled a wide range of fly hairstyles. I was torn between two like Letoya Luckett but then I knew this style was for me. Then i began second guessing myself because i didnt think my locs where long enough for 2 full buns….. I was wrong! Check out how my stylist created this 90s Inspired Hairstyle

Definitely cant wait to rock this hairstyle with some dope chokers

Lovin My Yoni Eggs

Over the past year, ive really dove in head first learning about the yoni eggs and how they help heal and strengthen my sacred vagina. A friend told me about Gemstone Yoni Egg ( http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) looking over their website taught me so much. One thing that stood out was all the eggs where GIA certified and the prices were very affordable.

The benefits of using Gemstone Yoni Eggs

Each yoni eggs and crystals comes in different color with different properties. Gemstone yoni eggs (http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) are the only natural , holistic , non-synethic vaginal exercise weights in the world.

I received the chakra amethyst yoni eggs from gemstone. I chose this particular egg because it’s know as the ” all healer”. Intuition and Calming are also properties , I find these properties will assist me in keeping my energies together.

The package was silver and chic with 3 yoni eggs (small , medium nand large) , wellness guild and a white sack to store the eggs. Everything about Gemstone (http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) is professional and educational. I love how the website and wellness guide that comes with each order is beginner friendly as well as a refresher for the pros. You can really tell they put alot of time into making their costumers happy.

The eggs where smooth as ice and very easy to insert. I used a thread on my drilled yoni eggs and so far so good.

Gemstone Yoni Eggs definitely made this experience magical. Im on my way to a holistic naturally healed vagina and its all thanks to Gemstone Yoni Eggs.
