I took my 2 strand twists out this morning but didn’t have time to separate and fluff them out. I’ve been locking the moisture in my hair with Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti-Shrinkage Sheen Sealing Nectar. This stuff smells so good it’s ridiculous. I picked it about about 2 weeks ago at walmart for around $9.

My hair retains the shine it gives for hours and the smell too. I spray it on my hair in the morning as I’m getting ready and maybe once again in the middle of the day. You have to be careful not to spray a whole bunch because everywhere you lay your head will have a grease stain on it. So far it’s doing a really good job at retaining the moisture in my hair.


Tapered TWA!

Purple and length are gone! I’ll be doing a hair update video this week. I have a lot of hair don’ts to share about fading purple hair. All I can say is that the struggle was real.

I’m happy with my cut and love the length at the top! My hair probably won’t be this color for long but that’s another story. Hope you guys are enjoying your day!


Happiness has finally been put into a lipstick form with a great price!

I’m excited and you should be too! Earlier this week NYX launched their Maracon Lippies in 12 bright and fun shades. Only $6 a pop I couldn’t resist the purchase. These smooth, creamy, and pigmented lipsticks are everything you need for the perfect bold lip.

These lipsticks apply very smoothly with a great color pay off. From left to right is Chambord, Blue Velvet, Violet, Rose, and Key Lime. The first swatch picture is what they look like without a flash and the last one is with a flash. You don’t need to put a lot to achieve the product color either. On go around on your lips will give you a great color.

I’m sad that I didn’t purchase the rest of the lipsticks in the collection because they are definitely going to be my summer lipstick choices. All I have to say is that you need this in your life.

Full coverage, highlighted, and natural looking foundation tutorial!

I don’t do this full routine everyday or every time I wear makeup. This is a good way to wear your makeup to formal event, like prom, if you want a naturally perfected look. 

Hope you guys like this tutorial! I have a hair update video because my hair has been through some drastic changes!
