This is my second time transitioning and will be my third big chop. Wow, my third big chop… when I think about how long my hair would’ve been if I never big chopped the first time… Actually let me not. I BC’d the second time because my hair was consuming my life. The literal “wash DAY”, the fairy knots and the constant product junkism got the best of me.  About 2 months before my wedding I just chopped it all off. My husband was surprised, I was liberated and  I loved my cut cropped cut. I’m BC’ing a third time

The older I get the more I realize that my feet just can’t handles certain types of shoes anymore. When I was a young whipper snapper I used to be able to walk back and forth across the yard to my classes rocking my newest pair of stilettos. Now, before purchasing a shoe I think about the time of wearablilty that’s associate with it. Is this shoe just for show? Will I have to sit down immediately after walking through the door? These questions and many more run through my head before purchasing a shoe now. Each and every year

Single Ladies

Single Ladies is back, finally!!! Hasn’t it been like a year since the Season 2 Finale? It’s been so long that I was beginning to think that they’d taken it off the air and just left us hanging like they did the show Girlfriends. I’m still a little salty that Joan never got married… Anyways Season 3 of Single Ladies starts off with the premise that one of the ladies is actually tying the knot. Surprise Surprise, two of the ladies are single and it’s actually Raquel’s employee from her boutique Indulgence jumping the boom. It seems she  has changed

We’ve all lusted and drooled over the many fashions and shoe choices of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw during her run on Sex in the City. While the show has long rolled it’s final credits we’ll never forget the impact this show had on many of our closets. I often wish that I had enough confidence or enough stamina in my feet to wear some of the many fashions of Carrie. We lived vicariously through her and now we may be able to walk in her shoes… Well, ladies hold on to your Credit Cards because SJP will be

Chocolate Colored Hair 4

Remember back when I showed you my awesome Chocolate Bundle Remy Hair? No welp, click here and refresh your memory a bit. This hair is 100% human and has not been previously chemically treated. This means you can custom color this hair to whatever shade your prefer. I decided that I wanted to do something funky and change the hair to a dark brown with purple highlights. Now, we all know that the color of the swatch you see is not always how the color comes out. It probably would have had I left it on a little bit longer
