[Syle & Hair Inspirations] Tamera on "The Real" Daytime Talk Show

So, I was watching Sister, Sister on TV and I saw Tamera Mowry at a young age. I immediately thought of how much she has grown in front of the public eye into a respectable individual. I also saw how much her style has changed and matured with her! She's on the The Real Daytime Talk Show and I loved every single one of her looks, and her co-hosts as well. They all seem very comfortable in their skin.

Let's get this started!
Here's Tamera!

For this one, I had to do a double-take because I'm thinking of trying this for a grad school recruit weekend trip. Woo-hoo!

Now, isn't she fly? I hope that gives you ideas for your own personal lookbook.

Now for the rest of the cast, here are some of their notable styles from the show.

Jeannie Mai
This girl is a fashionista and her style was impeccable. She knows how to accentuate her features and still show her personality. Her style is characterized by simple straight lines, straight hair and floral patterns.

I don't know much about her, but I do know that she is comedian who has a degree in engineering. I liked this particular look on her because it was the brightest thing she wore while she was on the show: a bright white jacket with a white shirt underneath. She doesn't normally make style a priority but she doesn't need to because she has the most effervescent personality of all the hosts!

Everyone knows Tamar by now. Everyone. She needs no introduction.
This first outfit (below) she paired with red pumps, believe it or not. (I couldn't get a quality picture). I thought it was an interesting pairing but it was perfect.
 What I liked in 2nd look is the color combinations. Her honey-colored hair and her complexion went great with her green jumpsuit, I believe it was.

 The girls just all looked great in this shot.

I didn't realize how much of a fashion icon Adrienne has become since her days on the Cheetah Girls. She is the epitome of fabulous. Everything from her makeup and attire to her hair and shoes is on a super star level.  In these pictures, pay attention to the colors and cuts she uses for her outfits. Also, I noticed that in each episode, she was sporting a different nail color. Come to find out, she has her own nail polish line called Fingertip Fetish. (Click here: ) Her time in the industry has given her an eye for hot looks and trends and it's a step in the right direction for her. I wish her much success with her line!

I'll throw in an extra picture from an interview she did floating around on YouTube. Adrienne is the best! I love her style and demeanor!

Anyway, that's a wrap and I hope this is a good reference page for anyone looking for hair or outfit ideas. The girls all looked great on "The Real".

Possible Summer Hairstyles

I'm quite bored with my hair. It's getting longer which is great, but I want a short-do for the summer. I may do a sew-in of a light brown weave cut into a short bob or in defined curls. Keri Hilson is my go-to for inspiration this summer!

Ignore my obsession with the blonde. It just signifies how dramatic a color change will feel like to me. I dyed my hair in 2010:
It was a bright honey-suckle color. I loved it a lot but it damaged my hair and I vowed never to do it again. Lol. But I can get my color fix with a weave. :-)

Preview of the Fall:
Aaliyah! I don't think I've ever done a post on Aaliyah but I would love to rock my length. My hair isn't this long but I would want to re-create the body of her hair in this picture come Fall.

My fro-hawk right now

I saw this cute style a month ago and I am currently rocking it. Great style to end my Fall semester with and I'm happy to have my hair out of the way for these next two Finals weeks.

My people at school was like "I didn't even recognize you!" This one girl in my classes said to me "You did that? I can't even believe that." Lol. Y'all like it?

The style I'm wearing now

So, I suppose I'm what you would call "stretching". I haven't gotten a relaxer since early June and keeping these roots in check hasn't been too hard. I've found that keeping them braided has allowed me to work with the two textures (coarse and relaxed)  for at least another week or two.

My hair looks very classy and neat. I'm loving it.

Check out the thirsty roots website to get inspired!

A nice little post off of Candace Cameron Bure's Roo Mag website. It's just what I need to get inspired for a 5k next March!

[Beauty Post] Russian Red lipstick

It is really hard for black women to find a red color that looks good on them. I myself stayed away from true red lipsticks because if it's not just right, it is borderline trashy. However, I found this lovely color called "Russian Red" that MAC has out. I love it. It is my go-to summer color! :-P
