Sooo my birthday was almost 3 weeks ago and I spent it in the Dominican Republic with 4 of my cousins and one of my best friends!
I turned 24 :-)
None of us had ever been to the Dominican Republic so it was a new experience for all of us.
We stayed at Majestic Colonial, an all-inclusive resort.
It was so much fun! I love interacting with people at all-inclusives!
As soon as they know you speak the language they immediately treat you like your their best friend lol!
Before I do this photo/video dump, I just want to thank everyone that wished me "Happy Birthday", bought me a gift, a card or helped celebrate!
I love y'all man! *sheds single tear*
I know I said I don't use heat on my hair.
This is the first time I've used heat since Dec. 2012
I needed to a protective style for the trip so I got my hair blown out for Goddess Braids
