I Cut My Hair!

Heyyy Luvs!

It’s been so crazy! My family and I just moved into our forever home, renovations are still going on so I’m living in a bit of chaos, AND on top of all that out of nowhere I decided to cut my hair. I’m talking like big chop!



But why right!?? I’ve got all the deets here. I absolutely adore my new short hair. I’ve been playing with my new short tresses working on different quick, creative and captivating style ideas. It’s been a challenge but y’all know how I love a challenge! Lots of new content to come for sure!

Sorry I’ve been gone a bit, but your girl back and working.

XOXO

Purple Valentine’s Day Glam

Hey Luvs!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and tonight I wanted to share a purple and soft pink Valentine’s Day Glam Makeup look. 


I adore the way this look came together. I used 2 different pallets from BH Cosmetics (2nd edition and 6th edition) and I’ve got two different colors from ColourPop Cosmetics on the lips, More Better and Bianca.

Bianca

So Wavy


These matte lippies are great together! Perfect for Valentine’s Day.


If you’d like all the deets on how I achieved this look, check out the full tutorial here. You can also check out the how-to fir this natural hair stand up twistvout here

Well, that’s all for now! 😘

Dirty Hair Never Looked So Good

Hey Luvs!

Wash day comes way to quick sometimes! It can just sneak up on you and you’re either not prepared, don’t have the time or just don’t feel like it.  For days like that I’ve got a quick, creative and captivating style for my naturalista Fam.


I love the detail in this embellished bun style. It’s so nice and takes no time to achieve. Click here for all the deets.


Well, that’s all for now!

Black Head Scarf & Pink Pout

Hey Luvs!

So I know that spring isn’t quite here yet but I am so ready for the season change. And although my wardrobe still says winter I’ve been bringing in not so subtle hints of spring with my makeup!


I adore the high contrast in the colors with this look.


Of course the eye shadows are all from my 2nd edition BH Cosmetics palette and on the lips is a simple black liner combined with a beautiful pink from the Wet ‘n Wild Matte Liquid Lipstick line called Too Tulip To Quit



The headwrap is just a simple black scarf. If you’re interested in seeing how I tie my scarves you can check out a tutorial here


Well, that’s it for now!

Old Twist Out? Bomb Bun!

Hey Luvs!

Happy Monday! Today I’ve got a quick, creative and captivating solution for an old Twist Out. Three, four or even five day old twist outs are perfect for creating full buns. I recently took a three day old twist out and transformed it into a beautiful bun.


Of course I filmed a tutorial for this look. Check it out here.

That’s it for now Luvs!

Our Forever House!

Hey Luvs!

I’m back! And boy have things been crazy. First I want to say Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We spent Christmas and New Year’s Eve back home in Florida. It was great to see and spend time with family and friends but it was tough with Zakai. He is in a super clingy phase that didn’t allow for much kid free time AT ALL. But, ah well!

Now we’re back in Georgia and are starting 2017 with some really exciting news. If you follow me on Instagram then you may already know that we have closed on our forever home!

I can’t tell you how excited I am for my family to grow and build memories here.  The house needs a ton of work but we’re going to take it on in phases.  The first phase of renovations has already started and we’re forging ahead.  What an amazing start to the here.  God is so amazing!  If you’re interested in seeing a complete house tour click here.

That’s all for now.

Earth Tones For The Win

Good morning luvs,

What is it about simple neutral colors and earth tones that can make you feel so glam? Never mind red lips and tons of color (as much as I love color). Sometimes all you need are earth tones for the win. Check out this look I did full of beautiful neutrals.

I love how this look pops! The lip and eye combination just radiates. On the lips are two beautiful colors, Take it like A Vamp by Wet n Wild and Molten Bronze by Black Radiance.


The eyes of course are all compliments of my BH cosmetics 120 color palette, specifically the colors to the left of this level of the palette 


The earthy colors are so beautiful. This definitely has to be one of my all time favorite looks.

Well, that’s all for now!

XOXO
