Life Lately: Big Chop Update and more!

Happy October everyone! Man, it seems like it was just summer yesterday. Today, I wanted to check in with you all and share a few things that has been going on in my life lately.





First, Let's Get to the Obvious




Yes chile, I changed my blog name again. Oh my gosh, Stacie make up your mind already! I know, I know. This will be my fourth name change but I promise this is the last time. I started out as the Coupon Sista in 2008 and then changed it to Stacy Says So about six years ago.

I always like the name Stacie Says but at the time it wasn't available. I went by Stacie Raye for a year but felt it didn't communicate what my blog was about. Stacie Says does a better job of getting my brand message across which is that I'm sharing all the things I love. Food, fashion, fun, family, and of course all things beauty.





Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

I buy everything pumpkin spice as soon as they hit the shelves. From pumpkin spice coffee creamer to pumpkin spice cereal, and of course desserts. It's all pumpkin spice. I have so much pumpkin spice flavored food that I get that I end up getting tired of it.










Natural Hair Update 






Since going natural in May, I have been wearing a wash and go. I blow dried my hair once in the beginning to see where my hair length was. 


Now it's getting too cold to keep wetting this hair so I decided to flat iron it instead. I was so surprised to see how long it actually is. I can even wear my ponytail y'all!


It's funny because I notice that when I straighten my natural hair it is not much different than my relaxed hair. Go figure. Either way, I'm loving my new do!






That's what's new for me. How about you? Anything new happening in your neck of the woods?

  12. I have thought of changing my site's name but, never have. Only the look. Congrats on finally grabbing your name! I wish I liked pumpkin spice everything. I feel like a misfit, lol. I do love pumpkin muffins, and bread though. I'm more of a fall "caramel" girl. I know, how are we mid October? The rest of the year is going to fly by! Ga haaa!

  14. Congrats on the name change and site. I love it! I do not love pumpkin spiced anything though (haha!). I see your hair growing in so long and thick. Glad you are happy with it, and it looks fab! We are over here getting ready to really purge our home from having so much stuff. I really want to have less and it seems like somehow MORE keeps appearing? I blame Amazon Prime for that!
