Endless Summer

Summer cyah done. Kes was right.

I suppose that it is with this in mind that the school instituted Culture Day. There, staff and students have the opportunity to sample cuisine from as far as Nigeria and close to home in Jamaica.

Ten things a Fledgling Cosmetologist can't do without

I've been at this Cosmetology thing for a minute. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I'm fighting battles with teachers for an extra 1% on my test results, ( You can read all about my epic Spartan battle here.)  and I'm nipping away at pieces of  my finger with cutting shears (please don't ask). Mostly though, I'm learning.

Here's my top ten list of things cosmetology students just can't get enough of.
