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!

[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

I wish I could get my ponytail to look that good! I'll work on it in the morning. Lol.

Summer has arrived!

Summer is a time for bright colors, isn't it? Now or never.

New shades for the summer from Charlotte Russe

Bright Pink nail polish and French tip

OOTD for my friend's 20th birthday.

Just got this A'gaci dress yesterday. I love the store!
Snapped this at work. I am in love with Coral nail polish this week.
So you can see what my style is looking like for the summer. :-)

Natural Hairstyles

Here are some natural hair styles that I saw online that I thought were so cute!

"Towards the front of the style, all the strands are turned into soft twists and rolled at the crown. A bang is formed from the drooping of a few of the twists that are pinned into place. This style is a great style that can go from  day to night with no problem. It would take around 3 hours to complete, and the cost would be an estimated $100. This style can last upwards of 5 weeks if well cared for."

I just thought this was hot! If my hair could look like this, I would go natural! Lol.

This is soft and feminine. I'm loving the color, too.

Down-dos (?)


Tyra Banks Hair

From :

Tyra Banks Hair, Past, and Present

The real Tyra Banks hair length and color was a bit of a mystery until she shocked the world when she removed every piece of weave from her head and showed the world her real, dripping wet hair.I greatly admire her for her courage and for hitting so many milestones and covers of many magazines worldwide.

Why not?
Everyone’s heard the stories about woman who refuse to believe that the hair they spend hundreds of dollars on isn’t their real hair, and I deeply admire Tyra for being strong enough not to hide behind store bought hair.

5' 10" (1.78 m)
This isn’t to put people down who wear extensions or weaves or any type of false hair, because there is nothing wrong with that. However, I think she should be respected for her courage.
Birth Name: Tyra Lynne Banks
Birth Place: Los Angeles, CA
Date of Birth / Zodiac Sign: 12/04/1973, Sagittarius
Profession: Model; actor; TV personality
In 1994, she was included in the list of "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" from People Magazine.


The supermodel likes to play basketball and tennis, but loves to box.


She also appeared in Michael Jackson's Black and White as one of the morphing faces.

At 11, a growth spurt turned Banks into "this tall beanpole freak all the girls would laugh at." She says at one of her interviews that, "I wasn't just skinny and tall; I was sick looking. If anybody called me skinny, I would just smile, then run into my room and burst out crying. It was a really unhappy time." Aww, poor Tyra.
For the record, I LOVE Tyra Banks! She is one of my most favorite celebrities in the world! And I've watched every single one of the shows :D

It's a New Year, 2012!!

Glitter nails for the festivities. (I feel like such a girl! I haven't done this since I was nine. Lol.)
Happy 2012!!

This is my first post for the new year. O_o. Wow, there's so much to be expected for this year and I can't wait for what it has to offer, the good and the bad. chronicles:
I tried the famous "Scarf Method" for the first time today. I really wanted to roller-set my hair for the first week of classes, but to no avail. My schedule was too tight and stomachs were growling, so I had to replenish the house with nourishment.

I can say (to no surprise), it works.
Ignore the impression the scarf made.
Look at those roots! Laying down and flat like I just got a relaxer yesterday. I will use that method until it no longer works.

Recently, I've had an itch to get a sew-in weave, a color, a tattoo on my back, and a tongue ring (today)! I have no idea why I wanted to all of these things and I probably won't do any in the near future. But, I know, it's just being young and reckless while I still am young.

During winter break,
I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time and it HURTS! By the end, I was flinching and grinding my teeth. I couldn't take the sound of the thread and the pulling any more but it looked amazing.

How you like them apples? Those things are arched!
So, I think threading is a superior method of choice for shaping brows because it gives more freedom to shape all-around the brow as opposed to a one-shot with a wax.

I had a cute bun for New Year's Eve!
Inspired by the Tyra Banks in the opening theme of ANTM
Ooh! I have to show you guys my new add to my product collection.
Every time I saw it in the store, I thought "what a way to waste $5 on a product that does the same thing that some grease can do". I really did. I bought it over the break when I had some extra cash and I was surprised at how much it works! My baby hair slicks down and stays down. I like it because it 1) finishes off my look and 2) makes it seem as though I've put time and effort in to my appearance. Two thumbs up!

That is all I will slam you with. Let's enjoy 2012 and look good doing it, too!
