VIDEO: 4 Month Update for My Natural Hair Journey + The Products That Have Made It Easier

I cannot believe that it has been 4 months since I stopped relaxing my hair and began transitioning to natural! So far the transition has honestly felt pretty seamless.

Ladies, Let’s Get Real About Facial Hair Removal. I’m Not Talking Eyebrows!

Lumina Finishing Touch Personal Hair Remover

About five years ago I started threading my brows. Prior to that I had been waxing them but realized pencil thin wasn’t really my look, and decided to switch to a more shape-driven hair removal process. This was also the time in which I got tired of having beauticians ask me the extremely invasive question, “upper lip?” So I decided to tackle my lady ‘stache as well and got a two for one special… When I tell you real tears were…

How To: Flexi Rod for Beginners | Transitional Hair Style

Let me tell you, I have been trying to Flexi Rod my hair since before I decided to go natural. I’ve seen so many photos of black women with these perfectly spiraled and full curls that they achieved by using Flexi Rods, and wanted in. I’ve been doing my own hair for a very long time so I figured this wouldn’t be that difficult. I’m pretty good at perm rods, what’s the difference? I watched one or two videos and thought I…

New Year’s Eve Beauty Inspiration

I’ll admit, I tried to skip going out for New Year’s this year, but I’m such a sucker for getting dressed up that when I was doing the shoot for this post I got a serious case of FOMO. Afterwards I texted my girlfriend like, what we doin’?! I just love an opportunity to go all out with my look and New Year’s Eve is always the most fun. Whether you decide to keep it to an intimate house party,…

My Favorite Products: November

With being a beauty blogger I am of course constantly scouting and trying new products each week or even each day. However, I feel it’s important to have a routine in the products you use and stick to what works best — this is when you really see results. So, I decided that each month I’d highlight the products I use most consistently that don’t necessarily fit into my weekly reviews. Here are my favorite products from November. MAC Studio…

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic. Here are some purse / wallet friendly beauty must-have items I’d recommend keeping on…
