Never Nude…

21 Aug

Blouse: H&M. Necklace: H&M. Rings: JewelMint Ludlow Trio. Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviator. Shorts: Calvin Klein. Shoes: Steve Madden Gretta.

Shout out to all of my fellow Arrested Development fans out there. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to reference one of my favorite shows ever!  Anyway, this outfit is a bit outside of my normal style comfort zone but hey I had a YOLO moment. Also best believe you will be seeing this graffiti background again… real soon!

That Moment When You Realize Your TWA Is Not So Tweeney Weeney Anymore…

14 Aug

After a failed attempt to do my usual coil out on Lola this weekend I realized that my adorable twa is not so teeny-weeny anymore. Perhaps in part due to shrinkage and not really taking the time to accurately measure her growth I have been thinking Lola was shorter. Imagine my surprise when I  took a moment to actually measure her and found out she’s about 3.5-4 inches long!  Has Lola officially outgrown the twa stage?

Price:  S16.00 for 8oz of product.

Don’t Believe the Hype?  Believe it!

Final Thoughts: I got a sample of this product in my July curlBOX and I have to say that I really like it; so much so that I have been using it sparingly to try to preserve the rest of the sample. I have used the product underneath a curl cream, a butter and a gel with great success each time  Lola felt moisturized and soft.  I am definitely going to buy the full size product and you should too.

Have you tried this or any other Shea Radiance hair products? What did you think?

July curlBox vs. CurlKit

12 Jul

I did an unboxing video for both the July curlBox and July CurlKit. I am going to do a separate post listing the products that were in the box/kit and links  for where you can buy them. If you guys would like me to do a review on a product(s) let me know. Oh, and one more thing tell me what you guys think of the July CurlKit/curlBox and or subscription services in general. I would love to know!

Finally, a tutorial on how I achieve my coily/curly hairstyle…

Sorry about the quality of the video which leaves much to be desired this whole blogging thing (including videos) is a work in progress and I am learning as I’m going along. If you have any questions please reach out  as I am more than happy to answer them.
