About Me

My photo
Hello, My name is Sharlinda Faith B. and I'm 25 years old. I have been a wife to my husband Nick for three and half years, and I am also a proud mother of our 3 year old son Lil Nick Jr. I'm the oldest of four children born to my black father and white mother. I'm also their only girl! Growing up our parents always told us we were mixed race and to be proud of both our heritages. Over the years my brothers and I have faced racism from both ends of the spectrum, but that never changed how we viewed ourselves. Time and Time again I've had to answer questions about my racial background, or have people angrily challenge me on how I define myself! These experiences along with the desire to know about others like me, lead me to read anything I could on the web about being biracial. I remember it as being one of the most amazing revelations in my life to find others who embraced both heritages just like I did! These last few years I have wanted to voice my opinions to the others. If enough people like me don't speak up then the world will never change.

Tool Product of the Week

This week I actually have a ceramic iron, that I personally use, to reccomend. It's called the HerStyler Forever. It heats up in about 60 seconds and can get up to about 400F. You can adjust the heat to your liking. So far it's the best flat iron I have ever used! It straightens my hair much better and faster than anything else I have tried. I first saw this product in the mall which was being sold for a 100.00 or more. I really wanted one after the sales man tested it on my hair, but I held onto my money and looked online. I bought one on Ebay for about 40.00 brand new! I ended up dropping it one day and had to buy a new one. I bought the second iron off of Ebay for 35.00. I spent less than a 100.00 on two Herstyler irons! The average suggested retail price is about 170.00. Go check Ebay or Amazon. Amazon also has some very good prices. check this link out

Also, take a look at the HerStyler website so you can look at all their products first and then price match on other sites. They have a new HerStyler TurboLite which looks like it is a replacement for the Forever.
