New Business …. Who This?

Hey lovelies!!!!!

I know it’s been a while, like a whole year. I’ve been experiencing life after Howard and the whole adulting world. However, I plan to be back in full effect. New hair, new outfits and new topics.

Now that I’m 24. I want to start something that has always been on my heart. I’ve always been obsessed with hair and everything that comes with it. I want to own my own thing and make something magical out of it. I want to be classic like Fenty Beauty and leave a legacy for my kids like Jay and Bey. So here it is or the start of it anyway…..

Heir Extensions. Virgin Brazilian and Malaysian bundles and wigs for sell. I’d like to add more pieces so tell me what you guys think. Buy and try some pieces if the spirit moves you. Let me know things you’d like to see and send in some reviews so I know how to perfect the brand.

Thanks for listening! I hope you share and click and buy and all that good stuff. I’ll be back in a few days with an update from my closet. 💋

How I: Keep the Curls Alive 

I recently had my old hair sewn in again by a very talented Baltimore stylist. The hair was from my frontal install last summer featured in Stylist Alert! and dyed black featured in From Brown to Black

I believe the texture is Brazillian deep wave or beach wave or something of that nature. To keep my curls looking fresh every day I have two go to routines. 

One routine is simple bantu knots. About five small ones at the top to blend my leave out and the twelve inch bundles. Then the bottom is sectioned off into either three or four large bantu knots. 

Another routine is the same five small bantu knots and then four or five braids at the bottom.  

The last routine is just five or six braids, braided from the leave out down. 


In the morning, I simply unravel. I spray a little water on the individual braid or bantu knot add some Miss Jessie’s Soft Curl and let it dry. 


And this is the end result! 

Cardi B, Will 4Ever B Poppin 

I must admit when Cardi B first hit the Love & Hip Hop scene I was like this chick is ratchet at its finest. However, my opinion of here has changed. 

I don’t see Cardi B as the ratchet, annoying, stripper chick. I see her as the real, down to earth, I’ll f*ck you up on sight yet still be cute friend that we all need in our lives.  Plus, her comebacks are classic comedy. Between she and Chrissy Tiegen I can be on theshaderoom all day! 

And let’s not forgot, she slays us daily with the style. 


And we can’t leave out her sissy Hennessy


You can’t get prettier than her! 

I truly admire their dedication to each other. You can see sisters beefing so often and they really ride for each other. Yet another reason Cardi will forever be popping! 

Our History = Their History.

An experience worth experiencing! 


I have a deep love of history and an understanding that knowledge of the past helps us to make better decisions for the future. All of us should take the time and visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The history of black people in America isn’t solely our story. Other people’s know similar struggles just as much as other people placed us in situations where we as a people had to rise up and overcome barriers and obstacles and show that melanin is a gift for the strong. 


Through this museum you realize the strength, resilience and genius our ancestors possesed. I always make a joke about flipping negatives into postitives but that’s truly the attitude that was demonstrated here. 


I won’t give anything away because I want people to experience it for themselves and draw their own conclusions. What I will say is that you should definitely take the time to see what the museum has to offer! 

#ArmoireAddict: All Eyez On Me 

Who doesn’t love Pac?  Answer. Very few, well in my opinion anyway. 


This Tupac inspired “Trust Nobody” tee comes from a completely random eBay vendor. The tee is accompanied by a jean jacket and black cargos both from Forever21 and a pink, dad hat from Express. 

Rainy day ready, this look provides a carefree yet stylish approach to bad weather. Raindrops shouldn’t stop you from dressing well! 

This is a bit of a rant but the two items from Forever21 I’ve had for a LONG time. I say that because rencently within the last two years or so I’ve really stopped shopping at Forever21. We all know everyone shops at Forever21 and everyone basically buys the same clothes but that’s not the reason I’ve put the brand out of my mind. Truth me told I literally just hate going in the actual store. It’s like a constant swarm of fifteen year olds and their mothers and I just can’t take it.  Online ordering is cool until it comes to the shipping. I think their shipping takes like three years. Ok, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but I just got really frustrated with the brand. 

Sidenote: Don’t forget about the new Tupac biopic coming soon! 

DevaCurl 

As a curly girl I’ve found a good combination of products that seem to meet my needs. I typically the OGX brand (coconut milk, coconut water) and Silk Elements for heat protectant and what not. I’m pretty comfortable with my routine and all the products. I started hearing about another set of products and decided to look it up.  

DevaCurl is now on the top of my list to try my very next wash day.  From what I’ve seen the brand does an extremely good job with their products. I hear that the products are good for those of us with natural curls. It keeps our hair fresh, moisturized and easy to maintain. I’ve also seen that there’s a large product line. All hair types can benefit from the DevaCurl brand. 

So look for an upcoming review on the DevaCurl brand! 

It’s limited edition online at Sephora!!!! 

Miracle On A Stick

Since I’ve started going to my stylist Tea this summer I’ve always wanted to know her method to keeping my edges laid. Edges are of the upmost importance to me but sometimes they just won’t stay. It irritates my whole soul and I just give up on my look for that day. Well I started paying more attention while she was doing my hair and this stick thing caught my attention. Everytime she would finish my hair she would use this stick and slick back my edges and lay down my hair at the top. Wanting to know more I googled and came across the answer to my question. Tancho Tique Stick, now I’m not sure if it’s the same brand my stylist uses but it handles the job all the same. 

I’ve tried all types of edge controls and they never seem to work when I need them the most. The best one besides the Tancho Tique Stick is the Jireh Edge Control. 


Anyway, I love this product because you only need a little slab on both sides and it lasts you for days, especially if you keep your hair wrapped up. This product is truly a God send. When I use this my edges don’t curl up like they usually do after I apply edge control or when it gets hot and I sweat.  

Moral of the story I support this product. If you’re looking to invest in an inexpensive product that keeps your hair exactly how you want it, I recommend this for you. 

#ArmoireAddict: Butter&Gold 

Are Timbs a regional thing or a racial thing? I ask the question because Timbs have become a staple in the African American and Hispanic  culture. Everyone knows that any man, woman and baby has at least one pair of Timbs in New York.  That analysis makes the answer regional. However, the same can be assumed of those in D.C.  Whatever the real answer is one can’t deny the effect that the boots have on culture. You can even widen the scope. It’s no secret African American culture paves the way thus making Timbs culturally relevant to the fashionable and trendy.

90’s culture saw the rise of Timbs as a fashion statement and the 90’s rewind of the recent 2010’s has recovered its visibility.  Timbs relevancy in our daily life has even gone so far as to project the status of the wearer.  Like who doesn’t want a family picture with hubby and the baby and everybody’s wearing Timbs? Pictures like that exude prosperity and happiness. Ok, that might be a stretch but you get the point.
