Hello All my Darling Divas!

Ok so the video will pretty much explain everything soo watch the video first, and then meet me below for all the extra info. And if your lazy and don’t feel like watching the whole thing, don’t worry I sum up everything below.

Ok so are we all here? Alright awesome. So do you accept the Healthy Hair Growth Challenge of 2012-2013? Because I think it’s going to be a pretty amazing journey for not only me, but you guys! Lets sum up what was said, since I know the video was crazy long( or maybe its just me, I HATE long videos!) 
RECAP
The purpose of this challenge to challenge yourself to grow your hair healthy. Now the tips I give you will not promise you a full long head of hair by next year, but if you keep on through with the tips, you will know what steps to take to keep your hair healthy and growing. If takes 1 year, 3 or 5, hair growth ranges from person to person and it all takes P A T I E N C E.  
  • I will post a healthy hair tip for you to try out each week. This tip also include interviews with other natural women, salon owners, and current hair school students. You can choose which tips you want to follow, or rather not follow. And also revamp them to make them work for your hair type
  • Take 4 pictures of your hair at the end of each month for personal motivation and to track your progress. Label each  folder of the four pictures with the Month and Year that you took them Ex:: the 4 pics you take this month will be labeled October 2012.
  • Labeling your pictures are completely optional, but it just helps to organize your pictures under some type of system so that you don’t have to go looking for them. 
  • There will be hair tools and product giveaways during this process (hopefully) so stay tuned for that!
Ok I think I summed everything up. If ya have any questions, let me know in a comment below or on the Facebook Fan Page.  Ok that’s enough of the pictures I will leave you with my 4 hair pictures for the month of October 2012.

Turbans Galore

Hello all my Darling Divas!

Ok so this has been a highly requested video that I decided to finally sit my butt down and do. It’s a how I wrap my turban video yay!! This is going to be yet another Jam Packed tutorial, so ladies and gents brace yourself, lots of reading ahead. But the purpose of all this info is to ensure that any questions you have get answered and to further explain the looks I’m going to show you since the video below is in high-speed. Reason for that is because I personally would hate looking at a 15 min video, so I shortened it to 3 mins! Now you can wrap your hair in peace and you don’t have to hear me ramble on in a voice over. If the video is going too fast for you, feel free to slow it down or pause it so that you can do it on yourself. There is no limit on how many times you can play this video, so the more clicks the better! So go on a head and press play, and meet me below the video for all the info.

Ok so since the video is super-duper short, I know it didn’t take long at all so let me just answer some questions that I know you’re thinking….
1. Why is the movie going to fast lady? You didn’t even break it down and explain!
Ok so the reason that its super-duper fast is because when I did to all the explanation’s the video was 20mins!!! Who wants to sit and watch a video that long! And besides, a lot of looks are repeating steps, so I know that speeding it up will focus more on showing you what I do instead of taking 5years to explain it step by step. It’s better to watch, then to hear.

 2. Where did you get your scarves from?
The scarves I’m using in the video are just my fashion scarves that I usually wear around my neck, with the exception of the African printed scarf. That is just a random long piece of fabric that my mom gave me. So what does that mean? That as long as it is long enough to fit over your hair and tie up, then use it! I’ve cut up pieces of old clothes that I didn’t want, found old scraps from Halloween costumes, and I’ve even used a shirt! So if it works, then use it. No need to go out and buy something, get creative! If you like the print, make it a turban.

 3. Do you really wear these looks out the house?
Yup I sure do. I’m a generally lazy person, so when I forget to tie my hair up at night, or just don’t feel like styling my hair, a turban always helps to save the day. It turns my bad hair/lazy days into a true fashion-forward day. As you can see in the video, my hair was all poofy and had no curl. I did that on purpose to show you that you don’t need any curl in your hair. Even a wild and crazy poof looks good. These turbans are also a good idea for rainy or windy days. It keeps your hair protected and allows you to go on about you day with one less thing to worry about.


Ok so that’s enough of the question round; let’s get on to the fun stuff…Pics!! A lot of these pics are pics from my instagram(@BrieBlondie)  and facebook, so if you follow me on those sites, and the pics look a bit familiar, that’s where you see them before! 


Now feel free to create your own looks and styles with your turbans. These are just all the ways that I wear my turban. If you think of anymore turban ideas and/ or have tried any of the looks I wanna see them! Post em on the Facebook fan page or put them up on instagram and tag my instagram name (@BrieBlondie) in the comment. That way I see your fabulou
s look and can feature it on my site. I
 hope you ladies enjoyed this post! If you have any questions, post a comment below, or post a comment on the Facebook Fan Page and of course I will do my best to help you out. Until next time, XOXOXOX

Pop of Peacock

Hello All My Darling Divas!

So just because today is rainy, doesn’t mean that you cant be cute and trendy. This weather inspired me to look as fashionable as possible and ignore the grey clouds above me. I decided to pullout my handy-dandy Sonsi convertible cardgian that I wore in my last post. You will definitly see me wearing this cardigan in a whole bunch of creative ways this fall.  If you have no clue what im talking about, click on this link —> Last weeks OOTD. Ok so enough of the intro, lets get to the outfit.

The Top Half 

Ok so I told you guys that this Sonsi Cardigan is the bomb.com! Today I decided to wear it it as an open cardigan so that I can expose the highlight of my outfit which is this peacock printed shirt! I got this from the deep-dark parts of the clearance rack at Burlington coat factory. Its a bit big on me, so i decided to bring in my shape with this thick rhinestone belt that I got from Forever21. Please excuse my belt being all twisted. I had no clue it was all messed up until AFTER I took the pics 😦 .

The Bottom Half
Thease jeans have got to be the greatest pair of skinny jeans that I own! Sad part is that since they were a gift, I cant tell you where to get a pair of your own. Since  I was rocking my brown oxfords from Simply Be, I decided to cuff the ends for a preppy feel to my jeans. And also to keep them from the big rain puddles on campus. 
Whole Pic Pictures
Alright everyone, It time for me to tackle this research paper. ( wish me luck) See you lovely ladies next week.
