Do you accept the challenge?

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.

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. 

Simple Fall Makeup

Hello all my Darling Divas!

Ok so fall is here and I have to say its my favorite season! It’s the time of the year that I can pull out all my best clothes and put on my best makeup because I’m telling you in the summer and sometimes spring, it gets way to hot to put on a full face! But the other day was my first official full face for the fall and I just had to do a tutorial. It came out way better than expected so I introduce to you my simple fall makeup tutorial.  Now I know on my site that I usually don’t do makeup vids, but its actually the reason that I started this blog so I decided to get back to basis a bit this week. The best thing about this video ( to me) is that all the products used are under $10bucks! With the exception of one product, but I gave an cheaper and in my opinion better alternative. So for the divas out there on a budget,( or are broke college students like me) this proves that you can still be fab on a dime. All the products and more pics are below the video. And enjoy my lovey ladies!
