Long time no blog! At least, not on back2curly.com. For those of you who aren't active on Instagram, or may have missed my posts due to the Instagram algorithm, I want to start a new blog series: Instagram Catch-Up! Click on any of the photos to see them on Instagram. The first part of this series will be an update from the first part of my summer: my trip back home to Hong Kong after completing my first year of college.
The day I arrived back at home, my sister (right) and I had the chance to meet Lesley from @boutkinks (left) while she was studying abroad in Hong Kong. She's actually from Boston, and we met through the curly hair community on Instagram! It's always cool to meet other bloggers and followers in "real life", and we enjoyed talking about natural hair, Hong Kong vs Boston, and everything in between.
Being reunited with my sister Jazmin meant being reunited with a Back2Curly model! I shared how I did her makeup for prom, we filmed a makeup tutorial feature the Sheabassador SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil line, and tested some Maybelline lip products for Influenster!
I also tried out a new hairstyle, explored the smaller outlying islands of Hong Kong, celebrated two years since my last hair relaxer, and was featured in the Boston Voyager (http://bostonvoyager.com/interview/meet-trailblazer-shayla-sandoval/)!
As always, check out @back2curly for posts about natural hair, travel, skincare, makeup, food, and more! Stay tuned for the next Instagram Catch-Up: Kunming Summer Part 2!
