Fall Protective Styles:Wearable Twists Tutorial

So I am a subscriber of Hair Crush (Chime Edwards) and I love it when she does her wearable twists. I was waiting until my hair grew out more and I finally decided the time was right. As fall has already come I wanted to embrace a more protective style for my hair as I move forward to my 2 year natural anniversary. It took me over 3 hours to do my twists and I am hoping that they last 2 weeks. Then I will take them down and wear the twist out.
The great thing about this experience is that I have finally found a combination of hair products that work well for me and produce and beautiful twist out as well as wearable twists.

Love at First Sight (3.1 Phillip Lim Animal Print skirt and Just Fab heels)

I just love the flow and style of this skirt. When I first saw this animal print I was not an immediate fan of it. I showed it to my husband and he said "What are you channeling Betty Rubble?" LOL. But as the Phillip Lim for Target release date got closer it grew on me. This skirt is a new favorite of mine and it can be worn so many different ways. Despite the bold print it is completely versatile!

FYI I am going on day 3 of having my twists in and  love them! The video tutorial will be up Thursday!

September 2013 Just Fab Haul and Review (Fall Jewel tones)

Hi loves! So I was inspired by fall to do a haul showing off jewel toned heels. As many of us know jewel tones are a fall staple. This year is no different than others with the color pantones being emerald green, Mykanos blue, royal purple, reds and burgundy's as well.

Fall Smokey Eye Tutorial

I watched one of my favorite YouTube beauty gurus do a similar look a few weeks ago and decided to try it out. I hope you all like my version, but check out BeautybyJJ when you get a chance. She has amazing makeup skills and techniques.

Fashion Friday: Kittens on Parade

Ok, so who is excited as I am that it is Friday? This weeks running (but unplanned) theme is kittens. Kittens or Cats have been trending in fashion for a while this year. I have been hesitant to jump on this trend for fear of being labeled a crazy cat lady for sure, but also because some of the prints can be a bit juvenile for my taste. While at the fashion show a couple of weeks ago I picked up two really cute items with kittens on them from H&M and I was so excited. I hope you like how I styled this dress ;-)

P.S. This makeup tutorial will be on my YouTube Channel as well as blog later tonight. The hair tutorial will be up next Thursday. Everyone have a great weekend!!
