My 1st Tree & Happy Holidays

IMG_0324Of Course – I placed my Hello Kitty from my make up container that was given to me from a co-worker on top of my xmas tree.  Our tree is so small and I bought the normal size bulbs to go on it.  Big mistake – I was only able literally to get three different types of ornaments on it.  Wal-Mart was out of the pink trees so I had to get the green Sad smile  I’m happy with the outcome and so is my boyfriend since he doesn’t have to look at a pink tree.  lol here are a few snaps.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays to EVERYONE!

2 Shoes and a Free Ring

So, today was my boyfriend and I’s first official couple picture session even though we’ve been together almost 2 years ( well over a year and not really a half – lol ).  I basically used Picture People as an excuse to indulge in the Idea of buying two pairs ofIMG_0326 new shoes! 

Charlotte Russe of course, is doing there sale of buy 1 and get the other for 15.50.

I currently have the cute pair of Black V. Suede shoes that I love that goes with everything.  I wear them with my basic Jeans and etc… etc…. etc…Any who – I was in desperate need of a replacement pair and as IMG_0330any girl knows its hard to find that one shoe that you can basically just throw on and run out the door.  So here is my replacement and another a got just for giggles!  I figured a nice pair of skinny jeans and black shirt and BAM!!!! Bowtie Cutie-Pie Shoes!  I did get this ring of my  choice for free since I spent over $20.00.

Victoria Secret’s Brilliant Lip Shine

This may come as a shocker but I don’t shop at Victoria Secret.  They sent me a gift card for 10 in the mall so I went to the store to see what I could find of course I went straight for the make up.  I will admit I am the type of person that believes some companies should stick to what they are great at aka what they are known for.  Victoria Secret = Underwear and sexy wear 

IMG_20111213_140301

  I got the color Charm.  Its very sheer and sparkles are everywhere.  Sorry for my added up nose shot. 

You have to press the button on the bottom to get the color to come out on a swatch tip.

 

 

 

 

Jamaican Black Castor Oil–I’m in love thus far

I heard that Jamaican Black Castor Oil is great for hair growth as well as a view other things.  So, I after my workout this morning I went to Kim’s Enterprises and picked up an 8oz bottle for 13.99 which is way cheaper than the 12 – 24.00 that Ebay and Amazon are asking for the 4 – 8 oz bottles of the same product.  Any who – Here is what I think so far.  Today is my first time trying it in my hair and I will try it in my bf’s hair later since he has dreads and I really bought it for him.  ( I just as well get some use out of it also – lol )

IMG_20111213_140141What Do I Think?

 

It’s a thick oil.  Its not runny like other oils and extremely greasy.  It has an almost heaviness to it.  Its brown which is different.  I’m going to have to store it in my squeeze bottle in the closet.  It comes in the darker bottle to protect the oil’s essentials from the sunlight exposure.  It doesn’t smell but it did come in 3 different aromas apparently.  Once, I did my applicator spread on my scalp and rubbed my fingers through my hair to add some moisture to my entire head.  I didn’t have that left over grease look or feel.  I just gentle massage my hands with the rest.  I haven’t had the need to wash my hands yet.  A little goes a long way with this product so don’t go crazy with applying it to your scalp.

Amber Rose

Love her or Hater her but you have to admit – Chic has style.  I have to say the one things I love about her style is that it is her and not what is cute or in trend according to whatever Fashion Guru is stating at the moment.  Not only is she beautiful but since becoming one with Wiz, I’m noticing she is doing a lot more charitable work.  Upgrades are always nice.

Loving her accessories with the zebra print.  I’m not a fan of overly done of any animal print ie dresses.

Loving the mixing of business with sensual.  Makes this look extra sexy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This image is from www.theybf.com and I am so feeling the zebra print stockings, white blazer, and shorts.  I’m on the search as I type from some exactly like hers or similar.

Fish Tail and Silver

Fish Tail I did in my sisters hair.  I finally found someone with hair long enough to do this hair style to.  
Needless to say, not to many brown skin middle schoolers new this hair style but i'm pretty sure they are trying to copy it.  She's setting trends. 




Thankful for silver to keep away evil but not bad grades.

Snow White Tuesday & Wednesday

111_0084

Tuesday was well Tuesday but Wednesday is the start of the long days of the week.  I dedicated Wednesday to my #449C Wet-n-Wild nail polish. 

<---- Check out that nail strawberry art I created – took several shots but I got a good one.  Of course, I didn’t think of it until afterwards but it would have been easier with the other hand. 

I dedicated to wearing a low key outfit to my nursing lab today due to it being one of the long days.  it was super hard to tell me I was to cute for school.  Presentations aren’t my favorite so hoping the look takes away from the shaking, stuttering, and consent hand wipes from me sweating standing up in front of my peers.

Good Morning to Red Mondays

Day one of operation get toned and fit.  I’m having my Foojoy China Green Tea with my swirl of honey and Yoplait ( YUCK!)111_0068, lol.  I rather be having some of my hard food right now that I cooked last night but I’m determined to be sexy for New Years eve.  Wish me look. IMG_8073

 

I wanted to show off my new favorite nail color by NYC its number 221 this morning.  I have my 4th exam for Nursing 101 and I’m hoping this beautiful red helps guide me lovely hands to all the right answers that my brain knows.  Sorry about the bad pictures of my nail color.  My camera was not trying to be my friend last night when I was trying to attempt the picturing of the fingernails.

Crème Crack in a Box

So, of course I went part time so I am trying to spend my money more wisely on certain things but not on nail polish, cosmetics, and shoes ( you know the important things). 

Well one major schedule beauty spending I cut out was going to my hair dress for a relaxer.  My boyfriend’s mother has a cosmos license “Surprise” so I went and picked up “ Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil No-Lye Relaxer normal”.  ( Recommend by one of my friends that also has thick hair like myself)

unnamedOf course, I didn’t know which one to get so I went the safe route and got the normal for fine to medium hair.  It worked fab!  My thick kinked roots are now smooth as butter and with the help of my bf hand drying it with two blow dryers and smoothing it into a ponytail with pink oil.  I flat ironed it a day later using my Suave heat protective spray and Shea Butter oil sheen.

I got the picture of the relaxer from google.com but I have 1. overpaid for this crème crack by a whole 5 dollars.  Walmart is not the best place to buy your box relaxers. 2. will be buying this again and so in love my capabilities of balancing.  3. I feel so much closer to my hopefully; one day; future mother-in-law because in my family putting relaxers and doing each others hair is bonding time and just a woman’s moment.

 

111_0020

Of course I have my Herbal Tea to sip on since its freezing in SC right now.  I left pictures at the bottom of the Suave Heat Protective Spray!  It worked beautifully.  You spray it on throughout your hair wait a few seconds then go to work.  I sprayed my Oil Sheen on my sections near the top to give me that nice shine and to also tame some of my shorter hair.  I love the smell of both and the Oil Sheen is AMAZING for just setting a style also.  I don’t care where I am the fellas always love the smell of my hair when I spray some of it on.  Its not greasy or sticky.  Once again Wal-Mart is not the cheapest place to by the other to products.  I recommend hitting up an of the Asian beauty stores first for any hair care products.

ARDEN B. Virgin

Yes, Its true!

I’ve always passed by the window of Arden B.  1 Reason:  My friends always told me how much they paid for pieces and I didn’t bother because I’m just to cheap for those prices.

Today I was walking through the mall and they had a sign outside that said, “ Sexy pieces for $5 and up “  I instantly thought to self.  Hey, Self your Sexy and $5 and up we can do that.  So, off into the store I went.  I got these two items for the 21.40 and I joined the Arden Club.  Supper excited to get my 20.00 to spend in the store.

Nature’s Natural Bath and Shower Gel

 

When we got to our hotel in Puerto Rico we got this amazing gift basket of Nature’s Products.  I am finally using the Bath and Shower Gel and I love it in the shower.  A small amount goes a long way and lather is great.  The smell is amazing and it did give me that energy feel.  Once your out the shower however – apply some type of moisturizer.  My hands feel dry but my skin feels smooth and not overly moisturized at least to myself.  My boyfriend performed my skin touch test and he did agree it felt soft.  So, that’s a plus.  Its not itchy or that ashy look but it is dry.  I will happy update this blog once I’m finished with the whole bottle to see if there is a difference in my skin. 

 

111_0007

  On the back of the bottle some of the ingredients mentioned are:  “ Myrrh, Ceylon Tea, Maca, and Myrtle extracts, tonifying and stimulating, with the refreshing multi-vitamin action of Kiwi Water.  Formulated with vegetable cleansers.  The bottle does say when under hot water, it releases a fragrance which gives an immediate and long lasting sense of wellbeing. “

Thanks to my amazing hotel I have the secret of the Nature’s product line. 

Glitter Gold Saturdays

Loving this nail color.  Its medium in coating ability so I coated nails 2 times.  It doesn't cover the nail that has extended from the nail bed very well as you can see in the pictures but I'm still in love with this color.  Once I went running this morning and noticed it in the Sun.  Its very eye catching.

Hair on a Budge

I had to go part time at work but I’m trying to make the best out of it by finding things I can do to budget myself with making sure my hair looks decent and of course, I’m happy with my overall appearance.  Nursing School sucks!  I had this product for a while and I finally used it.  I previously washed my hair and braid it and placed rollers on the ends then let it air dry.  Well – one of my friends came into tCurlandWaveDefiningGelown so to give a little extra curl and left.  I used my Curl Goddess Curl and Wave Defining Gel.

It is a self conditioner also with conditioning sunflower in it.  It smells really more like a perfume sunflower smell more than anything. 

It worked great!  If you want your waves to be tight and smaller then of course braid your hair tighter.  If you want loose then of course braid it loose.  I don’t have any really great pictures of the process to show you but I do have one picture from that night but you really can’t see it as good.

E.L.F ♥ @ Target

IMG_20111001_193517

Sorry about the bad pictures but I used my camera phone, lol  Trying to post quickly before getting ready to go bowling tonight.  I finally got myself a eyelash curler.  I picked up:

♣  # 10506 Black Natural Lash Kit, Brush Cleaner, New Shadow brush, and Curler.

 

 

 



IMG_20111001_193543

   E.L.F had a Zit Zapper and Concealer Collection that I had to get.  The Concealer is to light for me but this was a better buy than just buying the Zit Zapper by itself.  The Concealer will be used as a highlighter for other uses or even an eyelid base.

   I’m not pregnant but I hope for a little girl.  I love Hello Kitty.  Some socks for two of my friends.

Hey Ladies!  I've created a new tab on my blog just for drinks.  I always have get together and I am a proud member of the at home bartenders club, lol.  Please check out my reviews and if y'all have any suggests for any great spirits I should try then let me know.  I have several bottles in the top shelf so I'm just testing my first three posts right now.  Enjoy.  Please leave your comments if you know a great way to mix any of these spirits.
