This combination is great for weekends! Sunday I decided to roll with this combo for our first BBQ since moving to ATL. I pulled together two great colors and got this look! The shadow is from my BH Cosmetics 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette and the lipstick is VaVa Violet by Revlon.
Last night I had a bit of free time and decided to set my hair in 5 chunky flat twists using Dark & Lovely’s Au Naturale Super Softening Hair Butter. This is the first time I’ve tried a flat twist out and I absolutely love the results! I didn’t do much for styling, pretty much just unraveled the twists.
This style is great for fall when the humidity is low. We’re not quite there in Atlanta so I’ll be staying inside today :o)

Today, the fam and I attended a BBQ which I honestly wasn’t looking forward to mainly because I had so much to do around the house. Fortunately, it actually turned out to be a really nice time.
To help get some pep in my step I decided to go with my favorite color as part of the OOTD, cobalt! I paired a pink maxi skirt with my “I am a woman of God” cobalt tee that I cropped on my own. I also decided to color my nails in SinfulColors “Endless Blue”. Love it!
As for my hair I haven’t yet loosed my curly fro at work so it’s pretty much become my go to style on the weekend. Today was no exception. Here are some pics
Yep! Pretty much made my week. What a surprise it was to spot myself on Essence.com! Two of my Instagram posts made the cut for their EssenceHair page. You can check them out here along with some other great naturalistas.
Shout out to this great publication for keeping pace with the natural hair movement.
Hope you all are doing great. I’ve got that natural hair style new new on deck today!
Decided to try out a new style and I’m seriously digging it. This is a simple chunky flat twist and bun. It’s great for work or to keep your hair up and out of the way on weekends.
Here’s a brief how-to:
First I separated out some hair in the front (this is typically how I start most of my styles). Then I flat twisted that chunk of hair to the left side. I pulled the rest of my hair into a bun and pulled the flat twist back and pinned it close and snug to the bun. That’s it!

After a long weekend visiting family and celebrating my 7 year wedding anniversary in Tampa I’m behind on blog posts. Here’s some major texture and curls from the weekend to help get me back on track.
I achieved this look with Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk and Eco Styler Gel with Olive Oil.
