My Top 5 Summer Nail Colors

 If you all have followed my channel for a while then you all know I am pretty serious when it comes to my nails and nail polish. I love to have pretty nails and I find it sooo relaxing whenever I paint my nails. It's so fun! So of course every season I have certain favs, but it's always so hard to narrow down. Here I'm going to share with you all my top 5 nail choices for the season along with a few honorable mentions because of course I really just couldn't choose five!!

1. OPI (Mod About You) 2. WetnWild (Sugar Coat) 3. Essie (Bikini So Teeny) 4. Sally Hansen (Lacey Lilac) 5. WetnWild (I Need A Refresh-Mint)
 1. OPI's Mod About You is hands down my current favorite nail color. It's a beautiful super pale pink shade with no shimmer. It looks super clean and class. 2 coats gets the job done!
2. The past couple years I have obsessed over this color and still do! WetnWild Megalast nail polish in Sugar Coat is the most absolute perfect manicure color. It's a pale pinky milky shade. It gives your nails a sugar coated look lol... I'm so corny. But it really's my fave. Especially for a really awesome pedicure. I can't even count how many compliments I continue to get every time I wear this color. Def check it out if you haven't already!!
3. Essie's Bikini So Teeny is a strange color for me to subscribe. I would say it is similar to a Tiffany blue shade, but not really. It's almost periwinkle... Idk, it's a nice color and I would recommend checking it out! I would say def give this one 2 coats. 
4. I really love the formula of these Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail colors. I own about 5 of them. 1 coat would actually do these colors justice but I'm usually a 2 coat kinda girl, so that's just what I do and it works out wonderfully. This color though... Lacey Lilac, is such a beautiful delicate shade of purple. It's just so pretty and girly. I usually only do pinks on my toes but I have worn this one on my toes a few time and got tons of compliments. If you're into soft pastels, I would say def try this one out. And the price for this polish is so awesome for the quality. I have never seen them priced over $3. 
5. I Need A Refresh-Mint is def my favorite shade of blue. I'm not sure why it's referred to as mint, but it's not much of a minty shade at all if you ask me. It's very pretty though. The WetnWild megalast nail colors are also a favorite formula of mine. The colors are so opaque and 1 coat would be just fine with them all. 

1. Sally Hansen (Coral Reef) 2. Julie G (Oh Em Gee) 3. China Glaze (Something Sweet) 4. China Glaze (Aquadelic) 5. Essie (Splash of Grenadine) 
1. Coral Reef is my favorite coral nail polish that I own. As mentioned before, this particular Sally Hansen formula is really nice! Love Love!
2. Oh Em Gee by Julie G is such a fun hot pink color. I would def recommend 2 coats. The color dries to a matte finish so if you want a nice shiny finish def use a glossy top coat. I also own quite a few of Julie G's nail polishes and I must say they are fab!
3. China Glaze Something Sweet is very comparable to Mod About You. It's just not as pale. I would def recommend 2 coats for this particular color. It's very very pretty for pedis as well!
4. Aquadelic is an awesome color I received my the May Onyx Box. It's a really pretty pastel blue shade. Simple and pretty, but fun because it's blue!
5. This color is a really unique shade of purple. Essie's Splash of Grenadine is fun without being too out there. Purple is always a fun color you can get away with without it looking too "colorful"... you know what I am talking about if you work in a corporate or fairly conservative environment. 

I must also mention that all the colors mentioned are all flat color and contain no shimmer, sheen, or glitter. I prefer flat colors, but that's just my preference. I hope you all enjoyed this post and maybe you can try out some of these fun colors this season. Please let me know down below what are some of your favorite nail colors are for this season. Take care ladies!!

3 Days with my Natural Hair

Hey everyone! It feels so weird to be back on my blog again, but now that I have more free time I promised myself I would be more active on here. I'm so excited to share more on here that I don't get the chance to film or always remember to snap pics of on my Instagram. But any who, I hope that you are all doing well and I am so excited to be sharing new updates in my hair journey with you dolls. 

Let me begin by explaining the 90% of the time that I have been natural (which has been all of a little over 3 years) I have spent wearing wigs, weaves, or having my hair straightened. I have now decided to actually embrace my natural texture. Keep in my that was always my intentions, hence why I decided to go natural in the first place, but I never really wanted to take the time to figure out what works best for my natural hair. The most I would ever do is a twist out... sad sad sad. Now adays I really want to see more of my curls popping! I have been experimenting with new styling and products which I have noticed have caused my curl texture to really intensify. I am sooooo happy about it!! Below are some pictures and a group of products that I have used in my hair over a course of 3 days. I just wanted to share a bit of my new routine with you all. I plan on doing more post such as this and just letting you all know what I am doing to embrace the styling of my natural hair. (Smiles)

Pictured above (Links to all these products are provided below):
-Organic Root Stimulator Smooth-n-Hold Pudding
-Design Essentials Strengthening Therapy Shampoo
-Design Essentials Organic Cleanse Shampoo
-Josie Marine Argon oil 
-One-n-Only Argon oil hair mask
-spray bottle containing conditioner, olive oil, and water

Day 1: 
On the first day I decided to rock a twist out. I shampooed my hair with the two Design Essentials shampoos mentioned above and deep conditioned with the One-n-Only hair mask. After rinsing out my deep conditioner I sprayed my hair with the CD leave in and applied a small amount of Miss Jessie's Con dish Leave in conditioner. I applied the Noodle head to each section along with some of the ORS smoothing pudding. If I felt as though my hair was getting damp, I sprayed it with a bit of my mixture in the spray bottle. The video pretty much explains it all...
My hair air dried over night and I removed the twist and separated the strands for a bit more volume. 

Day 2 (Sorry no pictures): 
That night I decided to secure my hair into a few Bantu knots in order to preserve some curls. I moisturized my hair with a bit of the ORS smoothing pudding then sealed with the Josie Marine Argon oil. My hair sat over night and I removed them the next day as shown in the video. It had lots of body and texture which I love!

Day 3:
I did not any more product to my hair that night. I simply created larger Bantu knots, tied with a scarf and went to sleep. The next day I removed the Bantu knots and decided to do a little front twist at the front of my hair. It was super adorable, but when I began filming I threw it up into a high bun. 

 I hope you all enjoy this post along with the video. Any questions, comments, or concerns; of course just leave in the comment section. Look forward to more post such as these. Thanks for stopping by my page!!

Virgin Filipino Hair: Final Review

This is the review I did on Exotic Tresses Virgin Filipino Hair. I really did love this hair! The color came out beautiful and the texture blended very well with my natural hair. I would def recommend this hair to anyone that is interested.

I'm Baaaack!

Yikes! I can't believe it's been literally almost a year since I've updated this blog. I feel so bad about that. I'll be playing catch up on what's been going on in my life because trust me, there's been so much going on. As of last August I began my last year of undergrad only to find out a month later that I'm pregnant!!! The news was super shocking at first, but I'm over excited about what's to come in the future with my little princess. If you've kept up with my videos then I'm sure you're already aware of all that lol. So I intend on posting most of the stuff concerning my pregnancy on here and more details about my everyday. I think I will keep my YT channel a little more devoted to beauty and what not because some ppl prob aren't interested in all the baby stuff. So expect to get up close and personal with me on this blog and I look forward to having you all follow me on my journey with my little girl! I will play catch up posting some pics starting from this summer and my wonderful vacation I had with my family in Cali and Houston.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll catch you later!

I know... I know.. why the heck haven't i been updating this blog?! My bad you guys. I've just been so crazy busy ever since school let out. I'll tell you aaallll about it!! 
It all started with my honey's graduation on May 6th 2012! (sooo proud of him). The graduation was help at the Georgia Dome (Home of the Atlanta Falcons).

Congrats Ga State University Class of 2012!!

His name up on the big screen!

The key speaker was the CEO of Feeding America which I expected to be super interesting, but she practically put everyone to sleep. 

Me, my honey, and his mommy. My hair was a mess and my face was so shiny from sweating outside. it was ridiculously hot!
 We went to his mother's house right after and she prepared a big yummy feast! 

He and his sister and mom
 The Graduate!
 This picture would be so nice if it wasn't so blurry...
 Clearly he was in the middle of blink lol. In case you are wondering; my dress is from F21 about a year ago and so is the belt. 

I had to fly out for Houston the next afternoon, so we ended the night by going see the Avengers and relaxing.
Thanks for stopping by and reading about this very special day!
Congratulations to any graduates out there and good luck in this crazy world!!
