Spicy Brown

Hey beauties,

A while back I shared a new foundation I tried with you all. It was the Maybelline FitMe Matte Pourless foundation. I’d done a demo and review video that you can see here if you missed it.

Originally I bought two different colors, Coconut and Classic Tan Bronze


I combined the colors and the result was very nice. I adored how truly matte the foundations were.

Well, last week I re-uped on the foundation in a new color, Spicy Brown.


The results, AMAZING! This color gives me a deeper even more bronzed look. Either way this FitMe Foundation is life! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. You can find it at Walgreens for around $8. Well, that’s it for now, but first some pics with this beautiful Spicy  Brown color.

 

XOXO

Headwrap Heaven

Good morning luvs!

Wash days that are filled with other to-dos can be a struggle. But, today I want to show you how a standard scarf can make it all better. Over the past few weeks I’ve adorned my tresses with three different scarves while I deep conditioned/moisturized my hair. Here’s a look at those looks.


In each of these looks the scarves are tied exactly the same.  I got so much love and requests for details on how I tied the scarves that I decided it could definitely be beneficial to a lot of you. Sooo, I filmed a detailed tutorial in hopes of showing you all how to get a dose of headwrap heaven with scarves you currently own. In addition, I also filmed this beautiful purple and gold makeup look.

XOXO,

June curlBOX Demo

Hey luvs!

Sooo, my June curlBOX came in the mail while I was in Vegas but when I got back I jumped right in and found some new products by SoftSheen-Carlson called AMLA LEGEND.


I had never heard of these products but was really intrigued since they focus on nourishing and repairing damaged hair. Being in the midst of my color damage restoration journey I was eager to give these products a try.

For styling I decided to do my damp twist out since I’d gotten some interest/questions on that style.

Viva Las Vegas!

Hey beauties!

Last weekend Hubby and I took a trip to Vegas. Part quality time kinda vacation for us, part celebration for hubby and his business partner for killing it last year.  I was so excited to get away with hubby since we haven’t been on a real vacation just the two of us since before my 5 year old was born! 

Our trip was full of relaxation and good food. We honeymooned in Vegas so with this being our second trip there we decided to forgo the shows and walking the strip since we had done that before. Nope, this time we just want to relax and enjoy each other. And man, it was great. I wanted to share some outfits I wore a lot of which I showed in my birthday haul video. So…here we go

Friday evening we decided on dinner and dancing. For that I wore my simple black one piece bathing suite as a body suite and paired it with some super comfy black pants all complimented with some extra long statement earrings



Saturday day we chill axed in the pool at Luxor. Even though it was over 100 degrees outside it was still really nice. At the pool I wore an older one piece I’ve had for a while and paired it with a long black sheer cover up with slits on both sides from RoseGal.



Friday night we decided to have dinner and then just hang out in the casino so I kept it pretty casual.



Sunday was the first day of hubby’s company event. They started it off by moving us from the Luxor to the Palazzo. Upgrade! We spent the day doing a little shopping so I went with this white pencil skirt with a gold belt embellishment a teal mesh fringe shirt and some statement sunglasses.


Then it was off to the pool party with bottomless food and drinks.  So, I decided to take it up a notch and wore my black one piece bathing suite a pair of mesh pants with attached shorts underneath my black Michael Kors sandles and a gorgeous piece of body jewelry I got from RoseGal. I also pulled out my white rimmed circular mirror shades I got from the World Natural Hair show this year again. LOVED this look!


On to Saturday night the company hosted a cocktail party followed by VIP night club service. I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking that night so I wanted to keep it comfy but chic at the the same time. I decided on this super cute black and yellow bodycon dress I got from RoseGal and my black Michael Kors Sandles.




Monday hubby and his business partner attended a luncheon while I relaxed in our gorgeous room. Later it was back to the pool. This time I brought out this sexy white suite I got from RoseGal


Since it is a bit more risqué than Im used to, I paired it with a black mesh top.



And for our last night in Vegas the company hosted an amazing dinner for everyone. For this occasion I decided on a dress I got from a vendor at the Atlanta World Natural Hair Show and paired it with a pair of blue Steve Madden heals.


Dinner was amazing! They seated over 100 of us at this incredibly long table and served us some of the best food I’ve ever tasted.


All in all, we had a fabulous time! Well, that’s it for now.

XOXO

Textured Twist Out

Great morning luvs!

Today I wanted to share with you all my best tip for achieving a super textured twist out. You know that bomb 3rd or 4th day twist out look? I like to get that look on day 1! 

   

 Don’t get me wrong, I love a defined twist out, but I love a nice, fluffy textured one more 😊. So, how do I achieve this look? Here is the step by step for this look:

1. I used my OGX Beauty Coconut Curls Hair butter to twist my freshly washed hair. 

2. I let my hair get about 80/85% dry 

3. I unravel the twists

4. Separate the twists towards the front  slightly

5. Fluff roots

Here is what my hair looks like after (still damp)

   
  

 

Here is my hair about 90% dry.  

   

 

And this is my hair completely dry.

   
   
That’s it! My preferred twist out/twist out method. I adore this look! That’s it for now luvs 😘

XOXO

Birthday Haul!

Good morning luvs!

My family and I spent the long Memorial Day Weekend in Tampa Florida with family and friends. We had a great time! Hubby and I enjoyed some alone time since the Grandmas and Aunts wanted to spend time with our little guys. Two back to back date nights celebrating my birthday a little early (My birthday is May 31) was a total win! I love when I get to spend quality time with this guy.

 
After a great long weekend we drive back to Atlanta on my Birthday. We left early in the morning and arrived in the early afternoon. Although I was super tired a tried to put myself together a little since it was my birthday! I didn’t do too bad. I decided to wear a new cute dress I got for my birthday, paired with my Michael Kors sandals and adorable Betsey Johnson purse all from Marshall’s.

   
    
 
I spent the rest of the day with Hubby and my 5 year old Zavien❤️. 

I ended up getting a lot of great things for my birthday. If you want the deets check out my birthday haul here.

XOXO
