As a member of the curly hair club I wanted to share with you five trendy hairstyles. These will all work no matter what your hair type is however, I am trying them all out on my natural curly hair. All of these styles were experimented on day two hair. Dirty hair is easier to work with than day one when it comes to styling at least. All of these looks are practical since each one keeps your hair out of your face while still being effortlessly on trend.
Curly Hair Transformation | Easy & Affordable
Time to confess, my hair had not been cut in over eight months, which means it was only two months’ overdue right? How often do you cut your hair? For the last couple of years whenever I go for a haircut my intention is for more than a little trim. This time I did something I have never done before, a three-inch haircut with a natural hairstyling. Any other time I would have my hairdresser blow dry and straighten or even curl my naturally curly hair. As I am trying to embrace more of my natural roots I wanted to see what magic my hairdresser could do. For some reason she always amazes me with how well and fast she styles my hair.

Accessories Trends | Spring / Summer 2019
Previously we discussed in an earlier post that trends are not the be all end all in fashion. If you happen to love a trend try it. On the flip side if you hate it you do not have to wear it just to be fashionable. Fitting in goes against fashion as it should be a unique personal thing that varies from person to person. Your style gives people a personal glimpse of your personality, likes and dislikes without even uttering a word to them. Trends are simply to inspire creativity in fashion and usually they are on a wide scope so it is unlikely someone would adapt all of the season’s trends.

Does Makeup Expire?
Simply put yes, it absolutely does. Similar to certain food products makeup has a sell by date rather than a strict expiration date. No, there are no rules or regulations that require beauty brands to place a physical deadline on their products. The reason why is simply the start date is determined whenever you first open it and place it on your face.
While they could place a small disclaimer saying the recommended expiration time frame, like some natural juice companies that say best if used in 7 days after opening, they don’t. There are other factors to consider which may be why: If you put on your mascara to make yourself feel more alive than you do on the inside, you probably shouldn’t put it back on your face again. The basic use by standards are placed below that scientists recommend due to the rate of bacteria growth on the products. In other words, your makeup could be making you sick.
Beanie Hairstyles | Natural & Easy
In the chilly California winter months I find myself more often than not reaching for a beanie. On these days I do not want to fuss with my hair or have that lingering burnt smell of fried hair. Years past I would constantly iron my hair and it was honestly so irritating how people reacted that it was so “beautiful”. Recently I started taking more pride in my natural roots so all of these hairstyles are basic, fast and all natural.

For those of you that have seen my what I got for Christmas post/ video, you saw this product that I received for Christmas. I told you in the video that I wanted to do a review on it and I finally did!

Was it painful ?
Was the peel off satisfying ? ha
Did you have an allergic reaction ?
Is it worth the time and money ?

Aromatherapy for Anxiety: Does it Work?
Anxiety has been a constant roller coaster that I am tired of being on. After some research on how to surpass anxiety I came across aromatherapy as an all-natural remedy. The company Plant Therapy came up as a premium brand for aromatherapy, so I purchased the pre-diluted roll-on Worry Free Synergy.
How to: Love YOUR Hair
A bit of background
Until college I was hair shamed into straightening my naturally curly hair. From being teased in elementary school that I had an afro to waking up early in middle school to straighten my hair before school. In college I started to lose the stamina to straighten my hair every single day, so I didn’t do it all the time. It was not until a classmate asked well what are you, as she touched my hair that I started to feel weird again.
