The Fabulous Outifts of NoMinusPlus:2013 Version

Hello All of my Darling Divas! Here we are on the last day of 2013! Can you believe it? Cause I know I cant!. Now alot of my fave fashion bloggers put up an outfit recap of their top fave outfits they wore for the year. I decided to choose my top 12 to represent the 12 months of the year. Its always great to look back and see how fabulous you are! Now alot of these outfit post you may or may not recognize due to the fact that for the majority of this year I posted outfits only on my stoical media. It wasn’t until recently when  I decided to put my OOTD post back on my blog. So here are my faves! The deets on where I got everything will be above each pic since there arent blog post for them. So please join me as we go in back in time for the Fabulous Outifts of NoMinusPlus:2013 Version.

This look is perfect for the diva who is like me! Glitter! This dress just screams NYE! Don’t be afraid to swear sequins, colorful ones at that. Be bold! After all it is the last day of 2013.
Look#3
Top-Fashion to Figure
Leggings- Forever21
Shoes-Ashley Stewart
Going for something that has a good mix of elegance and boldness? This look is perfect for you! The white peplum top gives you a touch of grace while those studded leggings with faux leather paneling will show that you came to play! Pair with a comfortable pair of booties and your ready to dance till the break of dawn!

Merry Christmas to all my darling divas! Well ok Christmas was yesterday but I can still say it right? I hope that you all enjoyed your quality time with family and good friends! If you celebrate another holiday, I hope that it so far has been wonderful, or will be wonderful soon! NYE is right around the corner and I wanted to get out allll my NYE things out before time runs out! So to start off my NYE goodies, I have created a super cute hairstyle that you can rock on NYE or got any holiday parties that you sill may have to attend. So enjoy the tutorial! Meet me below the video for more details and pics!
Did we enjoy the video? I hope you did cause I had alot of fun making it! Now if your hair is a bit longer than mine you can still make this work! When you have finished all your flat twist you can twist up the loose ends up into your exposed hair, or in a low bantu knot and hide it with your hair accessory. If your hair is shorter then pin those sides as much as you can and use a big accessory to hide all your ends! See it works for everyone!

ThMakeup Info ( Click on the title of each item to take you to the website)

I purchased the Medium and Dark Palette which are pictured in the middle and last. These palettes are awesome sauce!!! Im still experimenting with the correctors but I can tell you that so far they have been working out well for me. Once I get it down pact of course you will all be the first to know about it! The concealer is great for medium coverage for all of your blemishes. Def recommend you to try it 

I purchased all three Brow Trio’s and I must say they are all the bomb diggity. My is always changing colors which is why I decided to say what the heck and got all three. All of the palettes have a cream based brow shadow on the far left followed by two powder based brow shadow after. The tiny applicator brush is perfect for filling in any spots you missed. Also a great buy 
Clothing Info( Some of the items are no longer available, so some will have links, others wont)

I LOVE THEASE BOOTS! I will say however that they are a little snug but I know that once I break them in they will be fine. They are the perfect cowboy inspired boot. I purchased these in a size 11. 
Tall Black Studded Combat Boots( No Longer Available)- Deb Shops
Im so bummed that this wasn’t available for you ladies 😦  This I also purchased in a size 11 and they are the perfect tall combat boot. Its rhinestone detailing gives it a punk rock chic flare that I love so much.

No Fuss Skinny Jeans-Forever21 ( No Longer Available)

Now these babies right here are EVERYTHING! I purchased them in a 2x and they are a bit snug on me, but still roomie. The detailing on the sides are what really make this legging stand out! I cant wait to style these for you ladies
 I have been secretly obsessing over this dress for weeks now and im proud to say that I finally got it! I purchased this in a 2x and  it is a little tight around the bust so all my big boobied divas beware of that and go for the next size up. Other than that this piece is super cute and very versatile for each season. I can see myself wearing it this winter into spring and then summer.

Fave Hair Products

Hello Darling Divas!

I’m here again with another video! Two blog post in one week? Im on a roll! Lets hope I don’t drop the ball. BUT ANYWAYSSS! In today’s post were going to discuss my fave hair products. I decided to do my top 5 fave hair prodcuts because I have soooo many favorites and my faves are always changing so I picked the lucky number 5. The Video explains more in detail about why I love each product. So after you watch the video join me below for some more info and where to buy!

Did you enjoy? I hope you did! I tried to make it as short as possible. The one thing that I hate are long videos, so I generally try to get what I need to say out so that your not watching a 20 min video!. I’m rambling though, so let me get to the deets!

Fave #1- Homemade Shea Butter
I make my own personal mixture and put them in whatever jars I have handy, so that explains why its in a gelato container( It was yummy!) But my Shea Butter Tutorial and more info about it is Here. I probably will redo this tutorial so that its more detailed because honestly that tutorial sucks! BUT you get the idea. Stay tuned for me redoing that later on.  You can get Shea Butter from your local beauty supply store and I’ve also purchased some from my local Walmart.

.
Fave #2- Murray’s Loc- Lock Gel
I LOVE THIS STUFF! I have already expressed it so much in the video but man oh man this stuff is great! Below is a picture of a twist-out I did using the sheabutter, loc-lock gel, and high gloss setting lotion. See I told you its the best combo EVER! You can purchase Loc-Lock gel also at your local beauty supply store and Walmart for around 4 bucks. You def wont pay more than $5 for this product. 
My twistout using this great stuff!! DEFINITION BABY!!! 
Fave #3- Design Essentials High Gloss Setting Lotion
I ALWAYS use setting Lotion with my twist outs just because of how I like how it define’s my curls. I always use LottaBody Setting Lotion, but I decided to switch it up and try a new product. Switching to this setting lotion was a great decision! Now I’m not saying this a permanent switch, but for now its awesome! You can buy this product at your local beauty supply or on the Design Essentials Website (Click on that sentence to take you to the product) 
Fave#4- Design Essentials Leave-In Hydrating Conditioner
This stuff rocks! It kept my hair feeling extra soft after my co-wash and wash routine! A lil goes a long way so dont use to much! You can purchase this at your local beauty supply store or on the Design Essentials Website(Click on that sentence to take you to the product) 
Fave#5- African Royale Hot Six Oil
This all in one oil also works for your body, but I mostly use it for hair. For all of my hot oil treatments, and sealing the ends of my hair, this baby is what keeps my hair looking awesome! Also now that I have my hair in braids I also use this product as scalp oil to keep my scalp moisturized while its put away. 
Alight Darling Divas thats about it! Feel free to also share with me you fave hair products! Natural,Relaxed, Somewhere in-between I wanna see them all!! Until Next time love you lots like  tater tots! And see you next week!

On Wednesday’s We Wear Black

Hello My Darling Diva’s

Soo I haven’t posted an OOTD picture up on my blog in a while! Back in the beginning of the year I sated that I would be doing my outfit posts on my social media. While that works out just fine, I want to get back into posting on my blog as well! After all this is also a Fashion Blog so lets get back to the basics! If you don’t follow me on any of my social media and have missed out on what I’ve been wearing this whole year don’t worry I will leave my stalker links below and you can search through my pics and see what I’ve been wearing. Enough of the Chat Lets get to the pics!

On Wednesdays We Wear Black

I dont know about you guys but I am OBBSESSED with American Horror Story Coven! It my fave show ever! It comes on Wednesdays nights, so what better day to wear an inspired AHS outfit than on Wednesday!

To match the look I’m going for, I decided to take pics by the most creepiest part of my backyard; my abandoned shed. Ok Ok so maybe I was little bit too dramatic with this look today, but I was in character so the setting had to match.
