Hairstyle Battle Me VS Flexi Rods

Hello All My Darling Diva’s!
Welcome back! I announced yesterday on my FB Page that you will be getting FOUR blogpost this week! I had alot of technical difficulties that got in the way of me posting up here last week, so that leaves me with two extra blogpost! So I figured why not give you all a treat, and post FOUR TIMES! So yesterday I posted the first video out of the four which was my Christmas Haul ( I know kinda late!) Click here to check it out! Now lets get into what today’s video is about!

In my first blogpost for this year I explained that there would be new content coming to the blog. I already started the Curve Maintenance health and fitness series, and today I am starting up the Hairstyle Battle videos! In these particular videos I will be trying out hairstyles that I have either always wanted to try, or have tried and failed at terribly. These videos will be me trying out these hairstyles with no practice! So I have no idea how the hairstyles will come out! So in the first Hairstyle battle video I will be going up against the Flexi Rod: A Hairstyle tool that I have failed at so many times! So in the end who do think will win? Me or the flexi rods? So check out the video, and meet me below to see who wins.

So In the end I WON!!!! And I was sooo excited. I can honestly say that I didn’t think that this would work out for me, and I finally realized what I was doing wrong all these years. I was using flexi rods on DRY HAIR! I always avoided doing Flexi Rod’s on wet or damp hair because I thought I wouldn’t achieve great results. So you can only imagine my surprise when I found out that the reason why flexi rods weren’t working for me was because my hair WASN’T WET! It was really funny for to me, and that just goes to show that you should try something out instead of just assuming that it wont work.

List of products used
My Personal Shea Butter Mixture

So here are the two videos that I used to learn how to flexi rod
I gravitated towards the Chic Naturals tutorial on flexi rods because she achieved a great style on short hair. Since my hair is shorter length, I defiantly appreciated seeing this hairstyle done on hair that was close to my hair-length! She started hers on damp hair and our textures are different, so I decided to check out one more video just in case starting on damp hair was not the way to go.

So then I remembered that Joulzy made a hair tutorial on flexi rods. Joulzy is pretty much my go to 4C hair god, because all of her hair tutorial catered to Type 4C hair. When I saw that she also started on damp hair, I  knew right away that that was the missing element to my flexi rod hairstyle! That was why I always failed at this hairstyle!
After flexi rods I was left with beautiful defined curls that lasted for a couple days! The video footage did no justice, so I was def glad that the pictures captured all of my curl greatness! 
Now that I have got flexi rods under my belt,  I will def be using them more often! I was very happy with the way my curls came out, and I cant wait to do them again! Moral of this story ladies, never under estimate starting on damp hair! Since my hair is Type 4C, starting on damp hair isn’t ideal. I achieve most of my style starting on dried hair. It was nice for a change to switch things up!
Ladies I hope you all enjoyed the first video in the Hairstyle Battle Videos! Let me know in the comment sections if they are any other hairstyles that you want me to try! Feel free to follow me on social media! They are all linked above! So remember to come right back here tomorrow for the third video out of the four being posted this week! Until then, love ya lots like tator tots!

Curve Maintenance Episode 2: The Follow Up

Hello My Darling Divas!!

Welcome to another episode of Curve Maintenance; the health and fitness series here on NoMinusPlus. This is a follow up video for my juice vlog that I posted earlier this week. In the vlog I showed you what juice I drank, when I got them,what times I drank it, and even my facial expressions on the taste of each juice. ( All of them were soooo good!) Since the vlog was about 10mins long, I decided to come back up here with a follow up vlog on my juicing experience. I figured I could talk more about how I feel after a couple of days have passed. If you missed the Juice Vlog video, then click here to check it out. It’s filled with alot of info including a groupon for the juice packaged I ordered from JusbyJulie! So enjoy the video and meet me below for more details.

Did you enjoy the video? I tried to be as detailed as possible! Overall I really loved doing the juice cleanse! Next time I do the cleanse( YES I WILL DO IT AGAIN!) I’m going to juice on my own. I am going to experiment with making juices and I figured that would also be alot more fun! I would definitely order from JusbyJulie again though. It was the perfect start to my healthy journey, and I wouldn’t mind just having a bunch of these drinks hanging around in my fridge!

Post-Cleanse Eating
As stated in the video, I am going to show you what I have been eating since my juice fast ended. I would have to say eating was the hardest part! I know, sounds crazy right? I was actually craving so much healthy stuff, but didn’t have the right items in my fridge. I ended up working with what I had on hand, and ended up creating some really awesome creative meals! I plan to start some healthy cooking videos pretty soon ,so let me know if any of the meals below you would like me to show you how to make!

A list of the foods pictured below
1 Green Apple Topped with Peanut Butter with Omega 3’s Granola and Raisins
 Morningstar Veggie Burger with white American cheese and Sweet Potato Fries
 Grilled Salmon with Black Beans
A Chicken Ceasar Salad Wrap from Blimpies
Breakfast Frittata with Brown Rice, Broccoli, Chicken, Cheese, and topped with Salsa 

So that is all!  I hope that you all have enjoyed this video, and the curve maintenance series so far! For those of you who aren’t into the healthy stuff don’t worry! All the fashion, beauty, and makeup videos are coming for the next couple of weeks! Feel free to follow me on social media! All of them are linked above! So until next time Love ya lots like tator tots, and see you soon!

Curve Maintenance Episode 1: Juice Vlog

Hello All My Darling Divas!!!
I’m reallllyyy excited because today is the first day of the Curve Maintenance series! As stated in my update blogpost last week, I’m going to start incorporating health and fitness in the blog! If you want to know more about what to expect in the Curve Maintenance series, then click here for that blogpost.

Ok so I have been interested in juicing for a longgggggggg time now, but was always afraid to do it. So I decided that I would stop being a punk and do my first juice cleanse! I decided to only do it for 1 Day because I wanted to first see if I could actually do it. There are a couple of amazing benefits to juicing such as

  • balanced pH and blood sugar levels,
  • a cleansed and regulated colon,
  • weight loss (fat, not water),
  • diminished toxin load,
  • strengthened immune system,
  • increased mental clarity,
  • heavy metals cleansing,
  • increased liver function capacity,
  • loss of cravings for sugar and other stimulants,
  • cellular cleansing and rebuilding,
  • radiant, glowing complexion,
  • diminished pains and allergies (some disappear completely),
  • blood, tissue and organ cleansing,
  • restored liver function capacity,
  • increased energy levels,
  • emotional cleansing and release,

Now I’m sure that one day of juicing is not going to make me loose 20 pounds, but the reason that I’m doing this is beyond weight loss. I decided to do a juice fast because I wanted to introduce my body to something new, wanted to challenge myself, and I wanted to flush out all the bad foods that I have been consuming since THANKSGIVING! Now juicing for more than a day would produce maximum results, but I feel that one day of juicing will start the cleansing process, and get me on track to eating better.

If you would like to do a juice cleanse then I suggest doing all your research and talking to your doctor. You want to make sure that you are healthy enough to begin this process even if it’s for a day! I don’t want anybody passing out from juicing them blaming me!(lol)

I decided that I would vlog my juicing experience so that both you and I can see the process. It’s always good to document things that happen so that you can go back to them later on as a reference. So lets see how good I did on my juice fast.

Did you enjoy the vlog? I have to say I really enjoyed vloging! I have never vlogged before, but am so obsessed with watching other people’s vlogs! 

Now I’m going to do a follow up video later this week telling you how I felt during the fast, and how I feel after if your interested. I feel that this blog has given you enough to watch and read, so I’m going to break it up.

As stated in this video, I got my juices from a company called Jus by Julie located in NY. Click here to visit their website. Jus By Julie also has a groupon, so you can save some coins! Click here to check out that group deal! There are plenty of other juice company’s, so if Jus by Julie doesn’t have what you want, feel free to look elsewhere. You can also juice at home! Grab some fresh veggies and fruit, grab yourself a juicer from Target, Walmart, or order online, and get to creating! The internet has a bunch of different juicing recipes, so you don’t have to get them delivered to your door. I just ordered it because I cant turn down a good groupon deal!( lol)

Ladies (and gents) I hope you have enjoyed the first episode in the Curve Maintenance Series! Be sure to come back later this week for Episode 2: The follow up! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites. They are all linked above. Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you soon!
