Protective Style - Flat Twist It
This kitties MANE has had enough! I’ve been wearing my hair in this flat-twist, easy go-to protective style since my hair is screaming LET ME REST! Of course I can’t oblige and my FACE must serve this look. I brought this new Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil Cream for Dry Hair and Cantu Leave In Conditioner and flat twisted it up. I’m sure the fro will be back this weekend but geez, I musta break was needed. I’m on the look out for a new protective style…Maybe CUT Maybe Color Maybe Braids Maybe Twist…Just something new, it’s time for some CHANGE….Aint nothing wrong doing something strange for a little bit of change! SIKE! HA!
In Urban Outfitters trying on shades. Thought these were funny.
Beautiful Textures - Final Results
After my curly to straight experience from using the Beautiful Textures, Texture Management System product, I am back to curly. There were a few concerns regarding if my hair would go back to it’s normal texture, but as I stressed in my previous post, this product is not a perm/relaxer. It’s simply a conditioning treatment made up of natural products and amino acids that allows your hair to stay straight practically as long as you’d like. You could go from having a straight mane 1-day to being curly sue the very next. (It’s just that simple.)
I did notice that my hair is softer, well moisturized and easier to detangle, which is a major plus for me because detangling my 4c hair texture can be real work, (whip it work, work!!!)
I plan to use this product again in 6 months when it’s time for my next trim.
Thanks Rachel O for the Amazing Birthday opportunity.

Quick weekend #TurnUp. Decided to throw on my ever so NOW favorite HM boyfriend jeans and Shoedazzle Micah heels to serve up this winter Chi-city.
I have been on the lookout for the perfect pair of bedazzle styled booties. Finally ShoeDazzle released this awesome bootie. When it comes to such a statement shoe I’ve noticed that it’s a trend that can easily be over done. So these are what I like to call, Liberace inspired, were PURFECT for me.
Shoedazzle Saves the Day Again! Werk Me Out! Let me live!
Beautiful Textures- Texture Manageability System - Chicago Event
I was granted the awesome opportunity to test out Beautiful Textures new Natural to Straight texture manageability system at Chicago’s own, Christian Fields Beauty Bar.
The purpose of this product/demo is to allow your natural hair to go from curly to straight. I thought this would be a great trial for me because I have tightly coiled hair (4a-4c hair type) and sometimes I find it hard to detangle and manipulate my hair into different styles. This is NOT A CHEMICAL! It is made of all natural shea butter, coconut oil and AMINO ACIDS.
The Beautiful Textures kit comes with, Cleansing shampoo and Inner action leave in conditioner (this is the actual product you use to achieve your straight hair.) You will also receive Anti-Reversion Shampoo and Anti-Reversion conditioner in order to maintain your straight mane.
I plan to revert my hair back to curly within a week. You will have a final review then.

Went to Bartolini’s Restaurant in Midlothian, IL with Mum for some birthday lunch. I wanted to achieve a dainty look, so I decided to two strand twist my hair with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner, bobby pinned it down then attach my floral Akira Chicago headband for a romantic look. This is the first time I’ve jumped on the floral headband trend and I must say it’s A KEEPER!!

Sarah Jessica Parker + Manolo Blahnik Shoe Launch
SJP- Graced the Windy City with her GLAM this past Friday, March 7th, 2014. I was so excited when I was presented this opportunity to preview her collaboration with Manolo Blahnik through The Frockshop Dress rental boutique, in which I am a Brand Ambassador for the company.
Before SJP’s arrival, I decided to take a peek at what is expected from her awesome shoe line. This shoe collection is for EVERY women, no matter the age, whether you prefer a 2inch heel verses a 4inch heel she has whatever your toes are screaming for. Sarah Jessica Parker’s collection had a lot of range, everything from stilettos, flats, lace up booties, clutch purses and spring jackets.
You’ll see a few of my favs above!!
I decided to throw on my HM boyfriend jeans paired with my MUST Have Shoedazzle Beau+Ashe Katrice pumps
Art Vibes - [Allen Jones]
What to say? What to say? Or shall I say what not to say… Recently a picture of, British socialite Dasha Zhukova has been circling fashion blog since Martin Luther Kings birthday, displaying her sitting on a rather interesting chair. Some felt the image to be racist and objectifying to black women, since the socialite is of Caucasian descent. I decided not to post the photo of Dasha because I want to focus on the art itself.
After doing a little bit of kitty paw digging (lol), I came across the actual artist whom work has been controversial for decades. Allen Jones, is a British pop artist, best known for his over the top sculptures. He is known for making controversial art and being obsessed with the art of a women’s body.
When I first saw the image of Dasha Zhukova I automatically thought, “whoa what a dope CHAIR.” As an artist myself, I was taken back by the extremity of the pieces. Things I go crazy over is ART + WEIRDNESS + PUSHING THE ENVELOPE, and these piece literally widened my eyes of inspiration. I immediately thought "purr kitty." LOL
The entire Allen Jones collection is priced at 2.6million. I think I’d prefer to make a knock off and save my "Millies" for a trip to London and check out the art exhibit for myself.
I say live on…PlayA.
Getcha Dominatrix on..PlayA.
Do ya thing PlayA!
It’s ART PlayA.
- Happily Nappy ha!
