Do you remember your favorite YouTube vloggers from back in the day Circa 2006 -2012? I do. Specifically when it comes to natural hair vloggers. I remember going natural in 2008 and being obsessed with finding new vloggers to watch. Since May is Natural Hair Meet up Day and this year is the 10th anniversary for YouTube, I thought it would be fun to stroll down natural hair memory lane each week.

Woo hoo! Shea Moisture has a new professional line of products (along with the price) that are three separate collections. I first heard about this on the blog Beyond Black and White, where the writer talks about her experience with the Smooth Finish line. Check out her post here!
After reading her post, I was interested in trying this line out for myself. I have been experimenting with straight hairstyles lately (I’ll write about it later),

Welcome Back!

Spring is here and Summer is a month away. If you’re an oily girl(or boy), then you know it’s time to gather your products to add to your skincare toolbox. I made sure to provide a list of primers that work for any budget. Here are the primers that are best for a matte face.

Woo hoo! It’s that time of year to try yet another new drugstore foundation. What I love about testing drugstore foundations is not spending all my money it. I had an interesting revelation when trying out this new L’Oreal Pro-Matte foundation as well as the Maybelline Poreless + Matte foundation. I’ll save that for later.

So I had to travel to different CVS locations and apparently all of them didn’t have shades darker than 108 Caramel Beige which is way too light.

Last month, I did some serious damage… on a budget. I thought I was able to escape my addiction of Bath and Body Works and yet here I am again. Under the spell of this company. It’s the emails, I swear. That’s how they get you. Anyway, now that I am addicted again, I’ll be sharing my favorites with you. Also, these videos are meant to give you an idea of what to get for the Semi-Annual Sale starting Dec.

Just when you thought all hope was gone.

By now, I’m praying that some of you didn’t fall into desperation mode and purchased the Lorac Mega Pro Palette by the overpriced Ebay resellers. As of right now, November 18th 2:37pm you can purchase your Lorac Mega Pro Palette on Amazon.

Words can not express the relief of FINALLY placing my order after days of stalking the Amazon listing.

If you’re a make up junkie like myself and was part of the craze this past weekend with the Sephora VIB Sale, then you are aware of the hunt taking place to find Bobbi Brown’s LE Highlight Powder in Bronze Glow from the Holiday Collection 2014. When I tell you this weekend I was mad as all get out, I was UPSET! So there were many items that were sold out on Sephora’s site during the sale,

Here’s the actual demo of my wash and go routines that I talked so much about in my previous post.
As you can see in this video the techniques are very simple. I don’t like to complicate things especially when I’m a busy woman. Hope you enjoy and I hope this is helpful.

P.S.
The music being played in this demo is by this DOPE D.C. producer RODDYROD. You can find him on Soundcloud or his BandCamp Page.

As you already saw in my informational piece about this, you knew how excited I was about the arrival. If you follow me on my Instagram, then you saw when I hauled this item. Sorry it took so long but hey, better late than never. LOL! I hate when people say that.

Anyway, as expected, this palette was hard NOT to use once it arrived in my possession. At first I thought,

I’ve been playing around with Wash N Go’s All Summer Long. Here’s a recap of my coils in LIVING COLOR! LOL! Had so much fun and got so many compliments on really good wash and go days. Every wash and go ain’t perfect but you learn to appreciate the imperfection. My wash and go routines are pretty simple. Sometimes I feel like coiling my hair and sometimes I don’t. I go with the flow really.
