Grey Day with a Statement

I got this statement necklace a while back from Burlington Coat factory. If
you didn't know,  its a great place to cop
some inexpensive jewelry.
This was the 2nd time I wore this necklace and I wondered
why I don't wear it more often. It was the center
piece ( as it should be) of my casual fit.

Christmas Eve Snapshots

Hope you're having a great Christmas Eve. Today was a very uneventful day for me, mostly because
I have a cold :/ It sucks to be sick esp. during the Holidays. Hopefully
I feel better soon.

 Some snapshot of things around

I spent most of my day here. My bed is so comfy and I love my new sheets.
Glad I decided to get lights for my bed frame. They add a nice festive,
girly touch to the room.


Early gift from my mom. This Gold Canyon candle smells exactly like its supposed to;
'Clean Sheets'

My din din. Callaloo with ham. NOM
Grapes for snack

HOLIDAY Lips feat. Saphora lip stain 01


Just sharing my favorites lips to wear this season! All lip combos include Sephora's red lip stain "01"
On its own, its a lovely matte, long lasting, vibrant stain but together with lips sticks, its even better...See for yourself

Technique: one coat of desired lip stick followed by "01" then coat lightly with same lipstick.




Smooth, vibrant, unique, long lasting color that goes no where after dinner and/or your 2nd glass of wine ;)

(I did not use a lip liner for these looks)

Hope you try it

My Holiday Wish List

I feel like the older I get, the shorter my wish list.

This year only tidbits for my bedroom would suffice.

Love this black and white sheet set. Found here


I fell head over heels in love with this chair. (Found here) I'm so mad it was sold. On the hunt for one similar. I'll DIY if I have to! Will be checking the thrift stores first ;)

This rug would just UP the chic level in my room. I need a similar one. Yes, need! Found here

A similar pair of ankle booties won't hurt :) Found here I recently got one at the thrift store, but
its a size too big. Wearable though...

Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving Outfit +

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving!!

Just sharing two outfits I wore this week. This one I wore to run errands. I finally got my paint (white) for my room!! By Christmas, my room should be close to "perfect".

Anyway. Wearing le wig, thrifted men's cardigan, stripe sweater (old) and scarf from Conway , h&m jeans (last year) and boots from Dr Jays. I was super comfy and warm under my winter coat (not pictured) I  forgot to snap my hat, but there will be time for that. Its getting colder brrrr!


This outfit I wore on thanksgiving to my aunt's house.Top and skirt from Danice. Love this skirt. Its was only $5! Bought it this past summer together with a red one. Should have snagged all the colors. Random pantyhose and boots from DSW, a while back (Steve Madden).





My day was filled with food, drink and relaxation. Forever Blessed!
check out my video

Did go shopping today/Black Friday?

Happy Holidays!! (too early? lol)

First Wash and Go

I did my first wash and go 3 weeks post big chop. I think i'm late. I feel like that's the first thing I should of done. Anyway, it was a success!

My hair was conditioned and I used a little castor oil in my thin areas (left side of my head. I plan on putting castor oil every other that in that section). I massaged a generous amount of pure coconut oil in my scalp and hair. I then proceeded to part my hair into small sections, spray with water and massage the eco style oil in.

Didn't check to see how long the process took me (not too long nor short), but it took forever to dry. I was finished at 4.30 pm and at 8.30 pm my hair was about 60% dry. The next morning, the middle was still damp.

Its probably better to do this on a warm day but my hair was completely white when I was finished. There goes the wash and GO! Couldn't go anywhere if I wanted to looking like that lol

Ok so these pics were taken the night of the first day.


This is second day hair. 

The Second Day... sigh
I experienced a lot of flaking. My fault though. My hair was a bit flat so I played around with it a bit causing the flaking. Next time I would use the pick to just raise the roots. Problem solved. Oh, and i'll probably use a little coconut oil together with the gel for a less crunchy hold.

I plan on doing another wash and go for Thanksgiving. It might actually be my go to style this winter ;)

Check out the video

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving. Stay warm!!
