After the week I’ve had when Friday comes I am running to my flats. Oh how I love Casual Fridays. This week has been filled with running around like a MAD WOMEN as I prepared for 2 events. Last night I had the pleasure of attending a fundraiser event for a Cook County Commissioner and this weekend I will be STYLING the StyleQueue segment of the Industry Standards Fashion Show that is taking place this weekend at LaCuna Lofts. I will put details below. But anywhoo, this morning I twisted my hair with my go-to-product, Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner, I let it set for about an hour then untwisted it, and now I have these defined curls that freaking LIVE! LOL. Threw on my Urban Outfitters army and jean combination jacket, black denim jeans, DIY necklace, and my studded flats I purchased at CW Price. Super cheap casual and INStyle. And of course this kitty had to top the look off with Ririwoo Matte Lippie.

Cubans with The Jesus Piece
Saturday styling day has begun and I’ve been helping MeechyMonroe and MsVaughnTv prep and prepare for the annual Industry Standards Fashion show. For today’s show rehearsal I kept my look pretty ON TREND. I’ve been dying to wear my Digi Jesus Piece by Cease + Desist. I won this gold chain off a Twitter contest that Ebony Mag sponsored last year. I’ve been yearning for a bold yet Fem-ish Jesus piece chain, so when the contest opened up I was all over it. Paired this video game + hiphop inspired Jesus piece with a Roaring Wolf Printed Tee from Urban Outfitters, black H&M low rise skinny jeans, THRIFTED leather combat boots that freaking serve, Urban Outfitters denim and army jean jacket and Ririwoo Redlips.

What is a girl to do when she literally lives less than 5mins away from Chicago’s own, Akira! Now stopping in to try on fun and trendy looks has been added to my weekly walking routine. I wanted to look for new Spring 2013 looks. These were a few things that sorta kinda caught my eye… The LBD was my fav!
Throw it up.. Throw it up.. Watch it all fall out…
Say HELLO to #TeamStraightHair!!
I decided to go into this new year with straight hair instead of my kinky curls. I went to the local Egyptians (Mena’s Hair Studio) and for a quick deep conditioner, blow out and ends trim. I’ve been neglecting my ends terribly, which caused him to have to take a few inches of hair off. But, I’m cool with it. I’m not the type of person that’s overally obsessed with length. As long as my hair is health it SERVES!!! LOL
Anyhoo, I plan to wear my #teamstraight hair for the remainder of the month of January. I will play around with some straight styles (we shall see how this goes)
Didn’t twist my hair last night…So this is my hair pile up today!
The beautiful Mourhia Wright owner and creator of Profound Coils featured me in the November spotlight section of her blog. Mourhia wanted to know my take on Natural Hair in the Workplace. This was the first time I’ve ever done an interview that was not solely focused on my natural hair journey. Check out her website for informative natural hair reads!!
Wet&Wild Silk Finish Lipstick: Cashmere 541B
This season’s natural hues are becoming more common for us bronze toned belles. I found this bomb bronze Wet&Wild Cashmere lipstick from my local CVS store. And the best part about my purchase was they were having a bogo sale. So I purchased this and also a blue cream shadow pencil. This bronze lip tone is BOMB, the shimmer/glitter gives the effect the lipstick has a little gloss to it. It has a very light and easy to apply feel. I’d say A+ER!
A+ Price $1.99
