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.

New Fav Product! Garnier Fructis Serum

Right before Christmas my family and I ended up having to drive to Chicago because my Granddad passed away. As it is with all  trips, the whole family was rushing around , making sure we had all the necessities. I didn't have much money to spend since our trip there was so last minute, so I of course went through the Wal-mart aisle searching for a good find. I needed a serum that would moisturize and leave my hair looking shiny without making it really greasy. My eyes settled on the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine anti-frizz serum.I squirted a drop of it on my hands to get a feel of it and see what it smelled like. The serum has fruit micro oils in it , but just enough to make your hair shiny and soft without feeling oily ( should work on most biracial hair but could possibly make the hair more oily if your hair texture is more Caucasian ). I use the serum in my hair wet, dry, curly, or straight. You don't have to use very much of the serum to get it throughout the hair. You can use one full squirt, or two if your hair is extremely thick like mine. It also works as a great heat protectant when straightening with a flat iron.The fragrance in it is strong , so if you don't like strong scents it might not be for you. As for me I really love the fragrance in it. It is pleasant and makes my hair smell wonderful!
