New Dreadlock Accessory!

Hey guys, I've been super busy with my website lately & not hanging out here nearly enough. I run a sweepstakes & reviews blog where I have contests for things. Recently, I came across a product that I wanted to use to decorate my dreads. If you're interested at all, check out the cut...trying to not be spammy!

Dreads, music, and TAKING ACTION AGAINST SLAVERY!

There's a lovely dread mama on American Idol this year!
This video doesn't showcase it, but she also plays a mean harmonica.

On another note, I went to a Victor Wooten groove workshop on Monday... he is QUITE incredible and QUITE dreadlocked. I was close enough to snap this shot! He's a very cool guy. Little did I know that when I went, I'd be learning just as much about life as I did about music.

So i finally made the decision to dread my hair. After many years of wanting them, i finally felt like the time was right to get them. I've had many recent changes in my life - the dreadlocks feel like a new and exciting chapter!
Thankfully my beautiful boyfriend agreed to do them for me. It took 15 hours over 3 days and it was very worth it!! There are 22 of the darlings. They are now 3 days old and i am so happy with them.
Hope you guys like them as much as i do :)
