Retro Hair & Menswear

Good Morning loves!

I’ve been out of commission for a bit because I’ve been under the weather but I’m trying to work my way back into some normalcy! Today I’m wearing this retro hairstyle paired with a mens Claiborne button down and a charcole blazer both thrifted from the Good Will.  I am absolutely in love with this look. What do you think?





2014 Natural Hair & Purpose Recap

2014 was definitely a year of natural hair creativity for me. From my highlights in February to my undercut in October I had so much fun with my tresses! Challenging myself to come up with unique styles virtually every day was tough but rewarding. It allowed me the opportunity to inspire other naturalistas. Those looks also landed me features on CurlyNiki, Curlbox, Essence.com and tons of Natural Hair social media sites like @naturalhairdaily, @protectivestyles, @naturalhairdoescare, @myhaircrush and @naturalhairmag

2014 was definitely a great year for my hair journey. Here are some of my favorite looks from the year.

The only thing more exciting was the launch of Curly Christians, the blog where Christ, curls and fashion collide. I am so blessed to have found a big part of my purpose in this amazing blog this year. As the Editor-In-Chief I pull two mega industries I adore and my passion for Jesus Christ together onto a platform that is inspiring thousands every day! God is so awesome. I can’t wait to see what incredible things 2015 will bring. One things fore sure, I’m ready!

Edgy

After blogging about Combat Boots And Curls on the Curly Christians blog I knew that one of my must haves this fall was a pair of combat boots.

I took a very timely trip to Target last Friday and happened upon an awesome BOGO 1/2 off sale on women’s shoes! And because of this fantastic sale I got not one but two pairs of seriously dope combat boots, black and cranberry.

I couldn’t help but pair up the black ones this weekend. I kept the clothes simple with a black tee shirt and red leggings and set it off with a pair of statement earrings my Mom bought me last Christmas.

To go right along with this edgy look I wore big crazy hair with a peak of the undercut.

I’m going to have so much fun this fall with these boots. Here are some pics.

Inspired By Purple Tones

This week I seem to be extremely inspired by purple tones. Blending various combinations of purple can create some great looks.

It all started with a simple nail polish change. I decided to start the week with a great color by Sinful Colors called “Fig”. I then went over that color with one coat of Pure Ice “Cheating” for a little sparkle.

Yep! I can definitely see myself playing with more purple tones as we move into fall.

Crazy For Cobalt

Hi beauties!

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

A Night of Coral Black & Inspiration

So…Saturday night I met up with an old friend and co-worker of mine who also to my surprise lives in Atlanta!

For my outfit I paired a high-low coral dress with some black leggings a black and silver belt and my black and metallic Carlos Santana heels. I kept the hair simple with a super high bun.

We had a great time catching up and indulging in some wine and dinner at a nice spot called Twist. Unfortunately for me she’ll be moving back to NY soon to embark on a new adventure. She is fearless and inspires me so much.

Neon Nike’s and a Flat Twist

Hope you all are having a great Saturday. Mine has been pretty relaxing after a killer workout this morning. Didn’t do much except hit the grocery store so I kept it pretty casual today.

Decided to pull out these neon and gray Nike’s I found at Ross and paired it with some gray leggings and cute neon and gray top I found at Forever XXI. Topped it off with a side flat twist and low bun.

Easy & Professional Yet Fun & Protective

I sure hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing these twisted updo’s ’cause there’s a lot more to come!! Lol!

Here’s how I got yesterday’s brand new look…

First I took a medium size section from the front and made a loose chunky twist to the left side. I pulled the rest of my hair into a ponytail. I split the ponytail into three sections and twisted each section loosely. I pinned down each section of the ponytail and pulled the front twist back and pinned it on the right side of the bun.

That’s it! Easy and professional yet fun and protective.
