Twist Out

I know I haven't had many updates about my hair, because I have been super busy(nothing new) and am trying to wait to style it for my good friend's wedding this weekend. But anyhoo, here is a twist out with some eyeshadow on the end. I'm still on the fence about adding it to my hair for this weekend. 
P.S. Yes I have on a shirt...even though I know how it looks

Attempted Flexi Rod Set

So my very good friend is getting married in a few weeks and I have been dying to get dolled up and have a great time. I have been saying for months how I wanted to straighten my hair again, but I know that I do not want it bone straight for fear that it won't revert back to curly so I refuse to let anyone touch it but myself. Anyhoo. Friday night I washed my  hair and set it in 14 flexi rods using Lottaboy wrapping lotion and the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil leave in and some Ecostyler. My hair took for ever to dry, but I figured that I could sleep in the flexi rods...big mistake! My head was tight and uncomfortable from the flexi rods so I hardly slept, I was up super early hoping and praying that my hair was dry. I sat under the hooded dry for what seemed like hours but it was only an hour and 15 minutes. The front came out great but the back was wavy with a spiral curl on the ends. I smoothed my hair with a flat iron and pulled it in a bun. Overall, I'm pretty pleased I think my hair came out good for it to not be completely dry...I'm rocking the bun this week and then will try again soon. 
P.S. Excuse the pjs in the photos I was beyond sleep, the last pic is of my bun today! 

Hmmm not sure why this never posted it is from a few weeks ago


So no new hair updates because I came down with a horrible cold on Thursday and spent the last few days in bed. I'm beyond upset because that cold couldn't have come at a worst time...I was headed to the beach this weekend...but had to stay home. Anyhoo, I snapped a pic of my almost organized makeup collection...I know it's a lot.

Twisted Up...Again

So the semi straight hair didn't last long, I washed my hair last week and then twisted with Ecostyler Krystal. I have been keeping my hair up in a scarf at night to keep it looking fresh, I did also realize that I have been touching my hair way too much and that seems to cause it to frizz up a lot faster than it should...I'm working in keep my hands out of my hair and flipping it ( I have no clue were that habit came from lol)

Stepping Outside Of My Comfort Zone: August

Ok so I am a few days late, but as mentioned before in a few posts my good friend is getting married and so I have been super busying running around with her. Anyhoo, I attempted several bold and bright lipsticks this month. Its no secret that I am into makeup but I am almost always caught with neutral makeup, simply because it works and looks nice with everything. I wore a red lip to work and a bright pink last weekend. I of course didn't get any photos in it, but will attempt to re-create the look and get a few pictures of it.
