The hair came packaged in a nice box and was already shampoo’d and deep conditioned. I re-shampooed and conditioned the hair as I always do to make sure it was sew in ready. During the washing there was no issues with shedding or tangling. I allowed the hair to air dry and it went right back to

Single Ladies Season 3

This episode of Single Ladies was a bit ho hum, but there was a surprise that had me screaming “Let Me Find Out..!!” Raquel is still on the hunt for an investor to replace Eve for her boutique Indulgence so her and April hit up a party so that Raquel can speak with a friend to get an in, in the investing world. While Raquel does her business April mets none of other than one of the Wayan’s cousins Damien.

Lada Gaga Alexander Mcqueen

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 fashion trends become more and more outrageous and shoes are being made to seen and not worn.  In 2009 Lady Gaga was the first celebrity seen wearing Alexander McQueens  Lobster Claw 1o inch stilettos.  I’m not even sure how her feet conformed to wear this shoe for an extended period

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 her mind and said yes to becoming the fourth wife to a prince. So what’s happened to Reggie and Charles? Supposedly Reggie’s family hated April so much that they staged a fake intervention insinuating that he was gay when he really wasn’t. This made me scratch my head a bit

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 launching a collection of shoes appropriately called “SJP” with Nordstroms in early 2014! The collection is said to have a price range of $200-$375 and we can expect to see shoes that are reminiscent of SJP’s time spent as Carrie Bradshaw. You can read more about the collection and history

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 but all in all I was pretty happy with the result. Afterwards I washed and deep conditioned the hair and left it air dry. The following day I curled the hair using the wand. I had no shedding or tangling issues whatsoever! If you take a look at the first

My Resolutions

Written by Posted in Makeup Comments 1
Bright red female lips

Here we are jumping right into 2014. This past month of December was a very hard month for me. A friend and a family member went home to be with the Lord. While one of the passings was very unexpected the passing of my Grandmother was something that I knew in my heart was going to happen, something that I thought I was ready for, but when it happened it took me by complete surprise. Over the past couple of days I’ve had time to sit down and just reflect on life, my goals and my dreams. I want to live my life and do things in a way that would make my Grandmother smile if she were still here. She’s always been so proud of me and my  one of my biggest cheerleaders regardless of any decision I made. For her I’m willing to let go of what’s comfortable
