New Hairstyle: Short Curly Hair from Aliexpress

IMG_1079

TGIF beauties! I am coming to you with this new short curly hairstyle that I am rocking and loving at the current moment. Y’all know I normally love long hairstyles but it’s getting hot in Texas and I felt like venturing out. I purchased three bundles and a closure and sewed them together to make this full unit (wig). The lengths that I purchased were 12, 14, and 16 inches with a 10 inch closure. I did have to trim a few of the bottom pieces and a couple wild curls that wanted to do a little something on their own. I am pleased with it thus far and haven’t had any shedding or tangles […]

Nyx The Skinny Mascara

Nyx Skinny Mascara Wand

I recently posted a picture on my instagram of the latest products that I’ve purchased by Nyx. I figured I would go into more detail since I’m deep in love! I have really tiny bottom eyelashes and I have been looking for a mascara with an itty bitty tiny wand. I almost flip my lid when I found Nyx’s the skinny mascara. I have been wearing Nyx’s the skinny mascara for about two weeks and I am ready to tell you how wonderful it really is. Let’s start with the wand. It is one of the smallest wands that I have ever seen. I knew it would be perfect for grabbing my bottom lashes without […]

Twirl…..Outfit of the Day

Maxi skirt

Good day beauties! My addiction to maxi dresses and skirts are still in full swing. I found this beautiful blue maxi skirt at Forever21 and instantly fell in love. There was no way I was leaving her in that store honey! I debated on pairing this skirt with several tops and decided on a dress. Yes, a dress. The animal print top is actually a halter top dress. Have you ever wore a skirt on top of a dress? If not, then you should try it out. There is no limit to fashion creativity and how much you can swap out pieces. The big black bow belt was found at the thrift store for only […]

Snippets from my Journal: Unexpected Sunshine

Unexpected Sunshine

Last night I decided to flip through the channels on the television as I was updating my planner for the week. My curiosity stopped me when I saw that Joel Osteen was on. He was speaking about “Unexpected Sunshine”. When we feel like we are in the lowest moment in our life, there is unexpected sunshine. When we feel like our prayers aren’t being heard, there is unexpected sunshine. When we think that our situation can’t get any better, there is unexpected sunshine. When we feel there is no way out, there is unexpected sunshine. In darkness, there is unexpected sunshine. I started to think of my own situations and how I have experienced “unexpected […]

Indigo Wild Zum Bar Goat’s Milk Soap

Indigo Wild Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap

As I walked through our local Basic Foods, an advertisement of Indigo Wild Zum Bar goat’s milk soap stopped me in my tracks. I have never heard of goat’s milk soap, so my antennas definitely went up. The way the soaps were displayed allowed customers to smell the many different aromas from so many different flavors of the soap. Of course, I had to try out a few to satisfy my own curiosity, plus it made for a good review to share with my blog family. I am sure some of you haven’t heard about this company like myself (at the time) and I love sharing something new that I’ve stumbled upon. Basic Foods sold […]

Outfit of the Day feat. Cato Fashions

cato fashion 4

Good day loves! Most of you are celebrating the arrival of the weekend, whoop whoop! I remember those days. I am still currently on maternity leave which means that I have my days all mixed up. That includes my days and nights. My new son wants to be up all night and asleep all day…. oh the joys of motherhood. He is adorable though. I could literally stare at him all day. Anyway, I am two and a half weeks post delivery and I am feeling good! I am so excited to be able to fit into my clothes again, most of them anyway. I am only eight pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I […]

Ulta Haul: Retail Therapy

IMG_6456.JPG

I haven’t been shopping in soooo long beauties. My entire focus has been on my new son when it came to spending money. I couldn’t really do too much shopping for apparel anyways because of all the weight that I put on.  Now that my little man here, I felt like it was time to treat myself to a little retail therapy. The main reason for my trip to Ulta was to finally get the Urban Decay Naked 3 pallet. The pallet contains 12 rose-hued neutrals. This pallet is perfect for the spring and summer season. I am so excited to see what color combinations and makeup looks that I will come up with. I […]

Nails of the Week 4/5/2015

IMG_6442.PNG

Good day beauties! Have your nails ever looked so bad that you could hardly look at your hands? I needed a fill before I went into labor. By the time I had Bryson and was home for a few days, I couldn’t take looking at my hands any longer. I know I’m suppose to be in the house for 6 weeks but honey, I had to make a trip to the nail shop. Yes, eight days after delivery, I was in the nail salon. I was welcomed with cheers as I entered the shop since everyone knew me and clearly saw that I had my baby. I must admit, I was a bit surprised by […]

Welcome to the World Bryson

IMG_6313.JPG

Good day beauties! If you have been following me on my facebook page or my instagram, then you are aware of whats been going on in my life. Bryson is finally here! I have been living in the moment to just take it all in. He is so perfect and precious. He was actually due April 1st but was born on March 25. I decided to breastfeed him and that was a learning experience in itself. I couldn’t get the “latching on” part at first and boy, it was very frustrating. Eventually, I caught on and now I’m a pumping machine lol! I would describe breastfeeding as driving a stick shift car. Once you learn […]

Milani Lipstick in Teddy Bare Plus Swatches

Milani Lipstick Teddy Bare

Milani Lipstick in Teddy Bare easily grabbed my attention during one of my drug store makeup shopping sprees. I am a huge fan of Milani lipsticks as it is, but when I saw the color of Teddy Bare, I had to have it. A girl can never have too many nudes, can she? First off, Milani lipsticks are creamy, smells good and has amazing color payoff. I would say Milani and Maybelline Sensational lipsticks are my top drugstore lipsticks. I immediately put Milani’s Teddy Bare lipstick at the top of my favorites list because she is so perfect for my skin tone. She doesn’t give me that washed up look at all. She is a tad […]

Weekly Grabs #4

Weekly Grabs #4

Good day loves! Spring is finally here and holy smokes, it’s raining cats and dogs today! Last week I didn’t post a “Weekly Grabs” post because I really wasn’t grabbing anything new or different. I made it a point to grab a couple of products out of my ordinary this past week.  Most of you know I am at the tail end of my pregnancy. My energy is at an all time low and applying a ton a makeup in the morning is only a dream. I have been sticking to the basics for the most part. My basics include eyeliner, mascara, and a lip product. L’oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner: I have been using […]

Pregnancy Photoshoot

Pregnancy Fashion

Good day beauties! It’s Friday and I’m dancing. I’m actually dancing because the time is near for me to deliver my son. I can’t wait to meet him, get my body (and energy) back, and to adapt to our new addition to the family. I have to admit, I need to get use to saying “my kids” instead of it just being jellybean. We had a conversation yesterday. I told her mommy was ready for Bryson to come out. She said, “He is afraid to come out.” Let me remind you that Jellybean is only 4 years old and she cracks me up every time. In this shoot, I was 37 weeks pregnant. We hadn’t got around to taking […]

Girl Talk: Almost…

IMG_6238.JPG

Today I am 38 weeks pregnant and I finally feel like the end is drawing near. I am in the miserable stage. You know, feeling anxious, impatient, nervous, excited ect… Besides being an emotional mess, my body is stuffed to the max and my back pains are constant. I’m actually feeling relieved that it’s almost time for delivery. For the last few days, I been training several coworkers on my job duties that they will take over. This makes everything so real. I only plan on taking a month off for maternity leave. I hope that I don’t go crazy. I actually miss my job when I’m gone too long. I know my new son, […]
