Thursday HAUL: Thrift Store!!

Here I go again :)

I went back to the Family Store/ Salvation Army on Archer ave Jamaica NY. Found out that their family day is Wednesdays where they have half off etc. *big smile* I'm tempted to go next week!

Anyway, I went for t shirts mostly.Left with 6 items totaling $14.95. Not bad at all.




This shirt looks two tone, so cool, but it's a bit small...size 0! Wtf was I thinking? lol

~~Favorite Find~~

Quick Outfit deets






Hair: Top bun    Blouse: Gift (worn before, here)
  Jeans: H&M     Wedge Boots: Rainbow (recent)     Bag: Mom's
 
 
(I decided to do a quick review of the place. I would have more pics but this decsion was not pre meditated.)
 
We got there about 7.40pm Monday night. There was only a small group of girls there hanging out.
 
Orders:
 
 Jerked Chicken Satays (ahmazingg)
 
Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas


I LUV the fact that you can create your own drink; juice or smoothie... with alchohol. Yeah!

The Special of the night & Kewi, Strawberries & Tequila Smoothie


~Judging from the portion of food served, I gather i'ts more of a place to grab drinks and have a snack as opposed to dinner and a drink.
 
~The staff was cool. Not overly friendly, but that was ok! I also liked the picnic seating and how diverse the menu was
 
No cons about the place really. My rating 4/5
 
Would be returning on a busier night!

HAIR: Twist-out on Stretched Natural Hair

~It took my hair 2 nights to fully stretch after wash
1st night- twist-out
2nd night- jumbo bantu knots



~I two strand twist medium sections of the hair using no product




~ I lightly applied some blue magic conditioner to each twist making sure ends were fully coated



Prep & Style
~ I slicked the front & back of my hair with an oil (argon) and little gel and tied it down with a scarf


~ The twist-out from the back were randomly pinned up


Results of twist-out
Soft, bouncy, light, cute...

** I've bin setting my hair in jumbo bantu knots for bed lately...
