    Just Blow it Out Blow it Out Blow It out..

    I never wear a blow out so now I wear a blow out. As I prep my hair for elongated twist I decide to blow it out and rock it before I twist it up. I always blow dry my hair on cool and NEVER forget your heat protector my natty beauties.

    Let your hair blow in the WIND, before you commit any Summer Sins. Ha

    LiveIt.

    Wicker Park Pop Out + Lobster Roll

    Summer pop outs is a must. Hey man, I’m from cold ChiRaq when we get a little sun we go all in! Lol. I threw on my all black (H&M mini cut out dress + my sheer black long skirt) and added my favorite Urban Outfitter kimono and said Wicker Park here we come.

    Ran up to Wicker Park for shopping and new summer eats. Stopped at the graffiti wall and played around a little. Jamel crazy butt looks like he’s trying to get some “top” from the graffiti misses. He’s such a character lol. I like to think I’m a GOOF that finally found her BALL. Ha

    We finally made our way to De Lobster and lawdy it was delicious. I don’t know why I expected a hot&ready lobster sandwich, it was actually room temperature but the lobster meat was quite filling as it was soaked in a garlic marinade. So soooo yummy! It’s a must try! A bit pricey but hey when is lobster ever cheap?!

    I had the Surf and Turf Roll and Jamel had the Lobster Roll Grill Cheese.

    CareOn! And EatOn! Lobster Roll

    Driver roll up the partition please
    I don’t need you seeing Yoncé on her knees
    Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
    We ain’t even gonna make it to this club

    YONCE YONCE YONCE YONCE!

    So as you can see, my friend wanted him and I to imitate Beyonce’ Partition video. This scene was super dope. I’ve always wanted to do something a little risque, so this was perfect. In order to come up with a risque and sexy look, I went digging in my closet. Hey no need to buy anything new, especially when I can basically dive in the threads that I already own.

    LET ME WORK:

    1. Ostrich fur coat from Urban Outfitters

    2. Cut Out Black Leotard from Akira ChIcago (I wore it backwards to add a little more sex appeal)

    3. Lace up black pumps from Akira Chicago

    4. Vintage Necklace worn as a head piece.

    Say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Birthday BOY PIERRE!!!

    XOXO Partition

    Ready + Set + Shoot

    Soooo… My best guy friend Pierre, decided to schedule an editorial shoot for all of his friends, in celebration of his BIG 25th Birthday. He hired photographers, make up artist and booked the shoot to be at Borris Powell studio located downtown Chicago. IT WAS TIME TO WORK!! His theme for the shoot was ALL THINGS BEYONCE. Each scene with friends was a representation from one of her albums.

    Guess what scene I was in…Can you say PARTITIONER? Leggo

    Kitty + Huetiful Experience

    Finally took my protective style down. They actually almost lasted 3 months, hey I was short a couple weeks. I love love the result of a protective style. I swear right when my hair is screaming at me, “Hey girl, I’m about to fall out.” I throw my twist in and it GIVES my hair the life it’s been trying to live. Nice fluffy and full hair. I’m HAPPY.

    Yass Yass natty is back on the scene. I ran to Huetiful Salons, Chicago location and got a deep conditioning treatment, cut, blowout and style. Let’s see how long I can be apart of Team Straight! Straight hair because you care. Live

    Let’s HENNA..henna..nna…aaaaa

    A couple weeks ago I went to my local Bridgeport neighborhood eyebrow threading shop and received my first henna temporary tattoo art. The lady rushed and the design sucked so bad. Let me tell you, shaky hands are no good for henna art. Me being the artist I am, I waited until the ugly design faded and said, “I’m certain I can henna myself.” So let’s WERK.

    I ran to Michael’s in the South Loop and purchased a Medhi Henna kit for $15. This kit was super easy, even came with an applicator which made it easier to apply your henna with out shaky hands and results. This is my very first henna design that I completed on myself. I think it came out FAB!! So summer-time-chi READY!

    Walking out.. Let me market my skills.

    Live.

    Summer Loving + Urban Outfitters

    Let the jumper do what it was made for = SERVE!

    Did I mention…

    I had Dede African Hair Braiding Salon add a little pink in my Senegalese twist… I THINK NOT. I wanted a mix of Chicago ratchetness + fun, therefore I added a couple fuchsia hair pieces just to add something different to my twist. I have not worn multiple styles, other than high ponytails and buns because these braids/twist are soooo long. No regrets at all. I’m a pretty simple on the go chick.

    Did a quick pop-out with my friend Kellee for some Wicker Park late night fun. Boyfriend wanted done kitty-tention before I left. So purr. Ha!

    Hitting the scene, with pink hair all in between.

    My Milkshake…bRINGS ALL THE boys…

    Hey man when it’s a $15 concert in your city to see the beautiful Kelis it’s a must that you go get entertained. Hey it’s basically free. My friend Kawanda and I ran to the Chicago Parkwest Theatre to see this haute kitty perform. She was awesome. Of course Milkshake and her version of I’m Feeling Good were my favorites!

    Chicago Life ain’t just for the Rich & Famous.

    Let’s PAINT

    So in my love pad, I have a wall full of old school albums, and one in particular that’s a favorite of mines is an oldskool Funkadelic album which had crazy explicit images on it. The entire album is full of crazy art that you have to stare at to really get an idea of what the artist was trying to portray.

    So one day I thought hmm.. how about I paint one of these images on a tee. This lion tee screamed FEMINISM to me. The lion portrays a women’s lady part as it orgasms. SHOCKER lol. Crazy wild to me. But very unique in a way.

    So I say Le’ PAINT. I ran to Michaels to purchase fabric paint as I hand painted the image on a old black cropped tee I had.

    Hey not an exact replica BUT it got the point across.

    Le’ Painted. Le’ Feminist. Le’ KITTY
