St. Louis Fashion Week Caleres Fashion Entrepreneur Competition

Review of IndianHair.Net Hair Extensions

Exactly one year ago, I set out on a journey to be a naturalista. I was on a mission to go without applying heat to my hair.

It isn’t because I drink sugar-filled beverages in place of water, I simply don’t drink anything at all. I’ve been told people often mistake their thirst for hunger and that this can lead to overeating and subsequently weight gain. Since learning that, I’ve been trying to drink more water, but it isn’t always easy. Simply having a water bottle on my desk doesn’t inspire me to drink it so I decided to seek out some ways to increase my daily water intake. (more…)
