D.I.Y. Makeup Wipes

Hello All My Darling Divas,

Today I decided to try my hand at my first D.I.Y. project! I really love doing D.I.Y.’s, and I plan on making plenty more in the future. I came across this pretty cool D.I.Y. project on tunblr, and couldn’t wait to give it a try. So enjoy the video below, and meet me under it for more deets and info!

So did you all enjoy the video? I hope so! Now feel free to use whatever size container you want. Just as long as it has a top. I tried to pull the paper through the hole, but it was suchhh an epic fail! If any of you figure out how to do it right, leave me a comment and let me know lol

I got my plastic container from my local dollar store. You can also reuse any container with a top to save you a bit of money. This whole project cost me under $20! Not to bad for my own makeup wipes!

Ladies that’s it! I hope you all have enjoyed it! If you try out this D.I.Y. please show me a pic! Post it on any of your social networking sites and hashtag #TeamNoMinusPlus! You can also follow me on any of my social networking sites. They are all linked above. Until next time ladies, love ya lots like tator tots, and talk to you next time!

My Top 10 Skincare/Makeup Essentials for the Summer

Hello All My Darling Divas!!!!

Sooo as you know it’s getting a bit warmer out. So that means that my skin starts to act crazy, and my makeup is always melting off my face. My top 10 products help me keep my skin clear, and my makeup on. I also created a Top 10 list of my essential natural hair products a couple of years ago. This post is inspired by that. You can check out that blog post here. Meet me under the video for more pictures and info!

 
Did you enjoy the video? Did you love my Flawless moment in the beginning of the video? I added that in there especially for my Beyonce lovers. But anywhooo, listed are my 10 products, a lil more info on them, and where you can buy them.
1. Cleanser- St Ives Apricot Scrub
So this stuff is BOMB! And its super affordable! I purchase mine at walmart and it usually comes in a two pack so I get two for the price of one. You cant beat a good deal! 
2. Astringent- Clean and Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent
This stuff REALLY cleans my skin! I purchase this from target, and trust me a lil bit goes a long way. 
3. Toner- Shea Moistrue African Black Soap Toner
Im just now starting off with this product, but so far I like it! Shea Moisture already makes some of my fave hair products, so its only right that I test out there skincare products. I purchased this also from target. 
4. Moisturizer- Up&Up Target Brand Moisturizer
This stuff right here is def a Staple product for me. Its cheap and always gets the job done! I purchase a pretty generous sized bottle from target. Try it and I swear you wont regret it. 
 
Like I said in my video, my brows have to ALWAYS be snatched to the gawds! I feel naked without throwing some brows on. My go to brow kit since the new year started is this BH Cosmetics pallet, and I don’t plan on ever looking back!
Brows and Concealer go hand in hand. So I cant have brows as an essential, without following up with my concealer. This is great for me in the summer because I clean up my look without packing on the makeup. My concealer can keep up with the demanding warm weather, which makes it perfect for the summer. 
7. BB Cream- Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
On the nights where I need to be flawless and perfect looking, I grab this BB Cream because it is truly the best! It gives me great coverage while still being light weight on m
y face. Its perfect for the summer, but I don’t use it all the time. Only for special occasions. I purchased this from Target.
8. Beauty Blender-Forever21
Now this isnt the ACTUAL beauty blender, but this faux one from Forever21 is just as good! I love how it easily applies my makeup.
9.Blistex
This keeps my lips feeling really moisturized during the summer. The summer sun can make my lips feel really dry and cracked. My Blistex ensures that my lips stay hydrated to beat out the summer sun. 

10. Lipstick
This is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT item on my list! I have various shades and colors, and the summer time is when I really express my look using my lipstick. I have really become a makeup junkie, and will soon be recording a lil lipstick collection lookbook to show everyone!

So that’s it ladies! What are some of your favorite summer essentials? Comment and let me know below! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites, they are all linked above!
Until next time ladies, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you in my next video! 

4 Ways to style your braids

Hello all my Darling Divas!

Welcome Back! Are you loving this 2 blog post a week deal? I kinda decided to kick it up a notch, and Its fun showing you guys things this often! If you didn’t get a chance to check out this weeks other post, check it out here! It was a super fabulous fatkini lookbook!
So last week I made a video about my jumbo box braids, so now I’m gonna show your 4 hairstyles that you can do on your braids. You can even do this style on your regular natural hair if braids aren’t your thing. These four styles have been my go-to styles for this past week, and I thought they were super cute so I figured I would share. So watch the tutorial, and meet me below for more pics and deets!

Did you enjoy the vid? I had alot of fun making it! So now for more pics and details!

Look #1 The Braided Bun
This is just a lil twist on the popular high bun. Braids can be pretty heavy, so this is a great way to pin them up out your way with it still looking amazing.

Look #2 The Elegant Updo

The great thing about braids is that they are so versatile! This look can be worn for a formal event, or even for work! Braids are perfect for switching up your look. and is appropriate for any setting!

Look#3 The Double Bun
This look is my fave! I always love experimenting and adding flair to my hairstyles. This can also work for a formal event, or work. 
Look#4 The Braided Crown
This look is super casual, and very cute and fun. Its perfect for a running errands, lunch with your girls, or even a nice lil summer date. I feel this look is better on regular styled box braids, but I rocked it always with my jumbo ones.
So that’s it ladies! I hope you all enjoyed the tutorial! Check back next week for two more blog post! I’m excited about posting 2 times a week! It means I get to share more with you. If you haven’t checked out the new addition to Nothing Minus About A Plus, the store Styled By No Minus Plus, click here to check it out!

So I decided to do an inspirational photo shoot with all my fatkini;s so that you all can go rock a two-piece if you aren’t already.  The shorts in these pictures are my shorts from Styled By NoMinus Plus. They are perfect for the beach! I opened up shop last Monday, so click here for more info on all of that.  Now lets get into what we are here for today….FATKINI’S!!!
