Hairstyle Battle Me VS Finger Coils

Hello All My Darling Divas!,
Welcome back to the blog! It’s been all about hair this week and I couldn’t be more excited! So earlier this week I came to you with my first CurlBox Unboxing! If you want to check it out click here! February’s curlbox came with alot of wonderful products this month, and I had to of course figure out a way to incorporate the products in the box. I decided what better way to use the products then to do a Hairstyle Battle video! Now I have always wanted to try finger coils, and now that I had some amazing products to try I figured now was the perfect time to test it out! So enjoy the video, and meet me below to see who won: Me or the Finger Coils!

So I think it’s pretty safe to say that this hairstyle battle was a TIE! I won because the style did look great and stayed in place. The Hairstyle also won because I ended up not liking how it looked on me. You guys be the judge. Who do you think won? Me or the hairstyle? Leave your comments below! Now lets get into more info and of course pictures!



The two videos that help me achieve my finger coils feel free to use both of the  full out tutorials to show you how to achieve finger coils.
Charyjays Tutorial on Finger Coils- Chile I loveeee a Charyjay Tutorial! Always very informative and simple to follow. I chose her because we have a similar texture, and she showed two different methods of products to use to achieve this style.
Jouelzy’s Tutorial on Finger Coils- Jouelzy is my go to guru for 4C Hair! What attracted me to her tutorial was because we have similar length and texture.

 For this video I used 4 out of the 6 products that came with my CurlBox. For a more detailed description of the products featured, click here for my Curlbox Unboxing Video.

Ok So I started off with super dry hair that was tangled and lacked moisture. I used the Cantu Shea Butter Coil Calm Detangler. It left my hair feeling super soft and manageable. I will definitely be using this again! 

Then after that it was time to condition and I decided to grab the Carol’s Daughter Mirabelle Plum Conditioner. It put shape back into my curls, and kept my hair feeling and smelling great! 
After that I let it dry using the Dove Quench Absolute Cream Serum as a leave in. I showed how soft my hair was in the video. I showed you that I used the  Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste and it really held the finger coils! I loved the curl control paste! I was really pleased that it held my curls 
So since I didn’t really dig the finger coils, so I decided to take them out and rock a finger coil out and I loved it! The Control Paste really defined my curls and I have been rocking this super defined coil out for the past 3 days!
So ladies that’s all! Maybe I will revisit finger coils once my hair gets longer! If you try it out let me know! All my links to my social media are linked above. I hope you have enjoyed the second video in the Hairstyle Battle Series! I am having sooo much fun testing out new hairstyles, and I wonder what I will come up with next. If you want to see me try out any hairstyle just comment below and let me know! So until next week ladies, love ya lots like tator tots!

My birthday persona was Brieyonce and chilee she was fabulous! I seriously became another person this weekend! So meet me below for all my birthday outfits, and details!

Brieyonce Day 1( My actual birthday Jan 29th) 
For my actual birthday I wasn’t doing much, so I wanted my outfit to be very relaxed and casual. When I saw this Letterman jacket I just knew I had to have it! And the I woke up like this beanie just brought my whole Brieyonce persona to life! Beat my face to the GAWDS, and went out to celebrate with dinner and drinks with my fam

For my makeup I just did a simple black and brown smokey look paired with a red lip to match the jacket. Let me know If you want a tutorial!
Brieyonce Day 2 Daytime ( Jan31)
Saturday morning my bday continued with me taking a visit to the city with one of my Best Friends Danielle! We had a blast drinking bottomless mimosas, and chomping on brunch! If you are ever in the city go visit Mezetto it was the bomb!
For the outfit I want to look like I came straight from The Devil Wears Prada. I wanted to be fabulous, but comfortable, and more importantly WARM! I absolutely LOVEEDD this outfit! I felt like a fashion editor!

For my makeup this day I kept things simple. I wanted to go for a natural look. I did my usual everyday makeup. Pretty soon I will be recording my foundation and concealer routine. I’ve switched it up since the summer. I gave myself a nude lip using Circe from NYX. This nude is the truth! It doesn’t even look like I have lipstick on!
Brieyonce Day 2 Nigh-time (Jan 31)
After being in the city all afternoon, I rushed home to change so that I could go to my next bday destination which was a Hookah Bar in Wood bridge called Fire and Ice. I had such a wonderful night with my Big Sis Natasha, and I felt like a million bucks! There were drinks everywhere, Beyonce playing all night, and I even ran into an old friend. Best night out in a long time.
 Shots all night!

Brieyonce Day 3( Feb1)
My birthday weekend always falls on super bowl Sunday ,so I always share my cake and ice cream party with loud men scream
ing at the TV! It’s all good tho because I’m so used it! I was surrounded my all my close friends and family, and it was a great way to end my birthday celebration!
 My best friend Asha owns a Polaroid camera and she took some shots of the whole night and gathered them in this mini collage! It was super cute, and a great way to keep all my memories of that evening! I must get my hands on a Polaroid camera now!
Look at my cake! My family were such good sports about my Brieyonce theme! I felt like Queen Bey herself! This is an ice cream cake from coldstone, and if you have never had one CHILLEEE go get one ASAP!
I of COURSE had to have a Brieyonce T-shirt! I got crafty and just took a plain V-neck and some iron letters and BOOM! Shirt done! This was the perfect ending outfit to my weekend! The makeup look also gave me LIFE! It was so simple and that’s what I loved about it. On my lips is Black from NK cosmetics, and my lashes are from Wet and Wild.
