Affordable & Comfortable |Halloween Costumes

Tis the season for frights for some and comfy sweaters for all. So you’ve been invited to a Halloween party but you’re not sure what to wear? Well you’ve come to the right place! This year I am focusing on affordable ways to dress up once again with a twist called comfort. Many girls dress up to look skanky on Halloween, however, here I try to keep it classy without looking frumpy. Seeking some Halloween d.i.y. costumes? Don’t worry d.i.y.’s are definitely on there way, patience, starting Saturday will be the first Halloween d.i.y. of this season, for now enjoy the d.i.y ideas in this post.

The Boyfriend, The Fiancee, The Husband

Are you the creative one and him not so much? Would he feel tortured to walk around in a full blown costume made of itchy fabric and hours of your hard work? Try a onsie, he will love you even more for it! If you want to be pooh bear try a yellow dress with a cropped red top paired with d.i.y ears. He can be Eeyore to match plus you’ll both be able to reuse the outfits thoughout the year. Want to be Sally? This one is a little tough to diy so I would suggest heading to Hot Topic to pick up the costume dress which you can still rewear thoughout the year, if you’re a die heart fan. He can be Jack in comfort and style, who wants to really walk around with a giant skull head anyway.

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.

Every time I show her a photograph of what I wish to look like, this time it was Tori Kelly. Yes, I realize my hair is not the same exact curl type as her. Throughout experimenting with various curl products I thought it would be nearly impossible to find something to work for my unbelievably thick curly hair. Diva Curl was a brand I had tried in the past however, I shut them down as a brand altogether after the first couple I tried did not work for me. However, it was the Diva Curl ultra-defining gel that turned out to be MY product along with their new shine product.

In spite of finding something that works for my curly locks my curly hair journey is not over by far as there are brushes, shampoos and various products to experiment with. I never want to have a huge haul of products to create a naturally curly hair routine so hopefully I don’t end up adding too many more products.

Watch the video below to see what my hair looked like right before and after the appointment.

What kind of hair do you have?
