Update: Beauty purchases…

beauty products 2

Last week I discussed what new beauty products that I would be purchasing soon (HERE). I’ve been snowed in AGAIN here in VA, so yesterday I was lounging around my house and I ended up doing some online shopping. I decided to give five a try first! I purchased Sephora’s – Cream Lip Stain in Forever Fuchsia (HERE). Beauties, they are regularly $13, but that particular color was only $7! I can’t wait for it to get here, so that I can try it out!

Natural hair woes…

IMG_4254

Ya’ll. I can’t even begin to explain how annoyed I am with my hair. No matter how many twist-outs, bantu knots, or twist-n-curls I do my hair will not cooperate with me. It has gotten to the point where I haven’t even bothered doing anything to my hair for the past few nights. I’ve worn my hair in a messy puff for the last few days and kept it moving. I am getting a protective style next week and I can’t freaking wait. This might sound shallow, but when my hair will not cooperate with me, I just do not feel right. Say whatever you want, but that is just me.

Here’s a few tips when dealing with crazy hair…

1. Try a protective style. They are an easy way to allow your hair time to get it together while you do not have to be bothered with it. A few protective style options are braids, updo’s, weaves, or a fabulous wig!

2. Maybe you’re in need of a trim. Sometimes when you’re hair won’t cooperate with you it could possibly mean that you are due for a trim. I get my hair trimmed every three months and once I get one my hair is back in business.

3. Be daring and try something new! Try a sassy new cut or color! Sometimes you need change and getting a sassy cut or getting highlights might do the trick.

4. Always remember that healthy hair is most important! As long as you give your the TLC that it needs then it will grow! Eating right, taking your vitamins, and drinking lots of water also plays a role in your hair growth!

Freezing weather…

Hi loves!

It was been FREEZING here in VA for the last few weeks! My outfits have consisted of sweatshirts, tights, and UGGs!

On yesterday my fabulous cousin Kornisha became a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Incorporated! I am SO happy for her! The weather was in the 50’s yesterday, so I had the luxury of not having to wear a big jacket. I loved my look too! Side note: I am obsessed with my fur vest and it will definitely be making quite a few appearances this winter!

Purchasing soon: Beauty products…

Hi loves!

I’ve been snowed-in for the last few days therefore I have been super lazy! However, I have enjoyed my classes being cancelled, sleeping, and reading. I love the snow, but all I have been doing for the last few days is snacking!  So, I am definitely ready for all of this snow to melt, so that I can get out of my apartment!

I am always trying new beauty products, but it dawned on me that I never share with you all. That is so silly of me! So, now I will definitely be sharing any products that I have tried or am interested in trying.

The products that are pictured are items that I will be purchasing soon. I have heard great things about all of them, but I want to try them for myself! I know for sure that I will be trying out one and five very soon, because I would more than likely be using them on a daily.

My 21st birthday!

IMG_4123

I had the most AMAZING 21st birthday ever! My parents, family, and friends made it very memorable! I am truly blessed!

My entire weekend was perfection from the beginning up until the end. On Friday I painted pottery with my friends and we ended the night by going to my favorite mexican restaurants. On Saturday I had my annual shopping spree, which is something that my parents do for my birthday every year. On my birthday on Sunday I went to church that morning then my parents surprised me with a birthday dinner. I was totally shocked! Side note: So, Charlie Wilson is one of my favorite singers and he is performing here in VA next month. I had literally been begging my parents for those tickets every single day! My aunt got my mom and I tickets to the concert! I almost cried from being so excited. 

I had so much this weekend that I only captured my look on my birthday. Also, I searched high and low for a trench coat as I stated (HERE), but I did not find one that I had to have. Anyways, I was totally obsessed with my entire birthday look!

Operation: Trench coat!

Hi loves!

A few weeks ago I talked about looking for a fabulous trench coat for my 21st birthday (HERE). I’ve been on the hunt for one like crazy and I have yet to find one that I am really crazy about. This is driving me nuts, because I just want a super fab one to go with my outfits for this weekend! Yes, I am whining a little bit (LOL)! I will not be happy until I find one. On Friday I will be on the hunt all day to find one before my birthday festivities begin that evening! Beauties, please send good energy my way in my hopes of finding the perfect trench coat!

Blogging break: Over for now!

I know my blogging break wasn’t long, but the little break that I had was much needed. That last two weeks were rough! On top of that my passion for blogging had been forced and that frustrated the crap out of me. Anyways, I am back and I am feeling great! I got my groove back…YASSSSSSS! My 21st birthday is on Sunday and I am SO excited! I found a cute dress for my birthday and it was only $10! I liveeeeee for a good sale! I am still in the process of planning my other looks for this weekend, but I am just looking forward to an amazing weekend!

As always I appreciate ALL of your support! I hope all of you have a fabulous day!
