T. D. Jakes - Thy Brother Shall Rise Again (2/10)

Tangle Teezer for Little Girls *REVIEW*

i LOVE this brush and for my daughters hair, i LOVE it even more. She does not fuss as much anymore, and it takes me only a few mins to get the tangles out. It works like a charm on her wet curly hair and still does amazing on her dry hair. The only con is the brush shape, it does take some getting use to holding it and brushing. But other than that, i would highly suggest you tryin this brush out for your childrens hair. You can find this brush at AMAZON (JustForHair) and TANGLETEEZER.COM.

The brush is too cute, it even has a compartment for storing. =-) and it also comes in blue.

Feeling MINTED =)

Alright...so first off don't mind my nails, i KNOW its "messy" lol but, i was polishing them in the dark (everyone was sleep) ...don't judge me =P

Do i like this color by Revlon? Now that I'm not too sure..i don't dislike it. But i will say its a color i will really have to get use too. Its a pretty color buuuut I'm not really sure if this color suits my skin tone. But i like the color, just now sure if on me. The color reminds me somewhat of Tiffany. They should come out with a polish name Tiffany lol. Do any of you Beauties know of a color very similar to Tiffany????

Beauty Tip:: How to Save that NOT so Pretty Shade of Lipstick?

Have you every brought a shade of lipstick from the store or online, and it looked pretty in the tube but once you got home and tried it on...you were like, WTH!!??!! lol

Well I'm sure you have just like myself. I have done that so many times, even just recently. I ordered some MAC lippies, first did my "research" online on YouTube and thought i would be "Safe" but ummmm...no!! So i ordered the Vegas Volt, i feel in love with this color...once i got it home and actually tried it on my lips (yesterday)...my heart was tore in pieces lol. I HATED IT!!! Its just way to BRIGHT for my lips, my face, my everything...it makes me look like a CLOWN!

So...what did I do? Like the past mistakes lol! I apply my lip gloss first and then i apply just a very little of the Lipstick of Horror lol, and it makes my gloss pop with a nice little tint! Tones the color down BIG TIME! And leaves me happy and not feeling like i have wasted my money =/

New Hair & New Lip

Hey Beauties! So in these pics, I'm rocking my new MAC Creme Cup lippie with the MAC Bountiful Gloss over it. I'm loving it, i think its so cute...The texture of this lipstick glides on so smooth..i love it. Ill post more pics of the new lippies once i wear them.

Also I'm rocking a new doo...its a Lace wig actually, Isis Sabrina. Its a curly wig, i love texture wigs, its more realistic IMO. Also with this brand, i notice the wigs aren't shiny like most..that's a must. I decided to rock my lace because I'm 8weeks post relaxer and my New Growth is KICKING in now...so I'm using this style to protect my hair 100%...i still do my daily routine with my hair Reggie. I may rock some half wigs during this period...but right now,i want my hair to be covered to the fullest. I'm going to relax at the end of March/Beg' of April...i hope to be on my way to BSL...But I'm not expecting to reach that goal until June...*crossing fingers*

Heres more Pics of MAC's Creme Cup=)

1st Bantu Knot out (AirDry Hair)

Happy Sunday Beauties!!=-)

So a few days ago i did my 1st Bantu Knot out on air dry hair..the results were cute. My husband actually loved it, so thats always a + right?!


I co-washed my hair with my fave conditioner, Tresseme with Vit E and i deep conditioned with One n Only Argan Oil Mask for (15 mins) no heat. I then proceeded to my way of air drying (i already have a YouTube video on this, check it out). After it was dry i applied my LTR & Oil. I also used a little bit of Carols Daughter Loc Butter on each section of doing the knots. I did 4 knots on each side, left & right, with a part down the middle (made with my fingers, no comb) I secured them with bobby pins, applied my satin scarf and went to sleep....

Next morning:

Applied a little oil and rubbed it through my knots before separating and fluffing.

I liked the results, gave me like a short curly look, i think this would deff be a cute summer style.

Nite Time Routine:

Of course i still did my moisture and seal =-) but instead of doing 4 knots on each side, i decided to do 1 knot on each side, lightly finger combing so smooth out just a bit, then did each knot.

Next Morning Results:

The waves are a bit looser...

And theres my post Beauties...Also to let you know, you may not see *MY* hair because im going on 8 weeks post and NG is kicking in, so its time to protect my hair and give it a break,i want to retain my length so its very important i pamper it...I will be doing my 1st love of protective styles, lol, half wigs and even some lace front wigs until my next relaxer at either 12 or 13 weeks post...hey maybe even 15wks, i will see and of course keep you updated =-)

All other tutorials of my heat free styles will have to be after my relaxer =-(

Beauty Tip:: Aloe as Face Primer

ALOE VERA GEL anyone??

Aloe Vera Gel works perfect for a face primer! It leaves your skin feeling SUPER soft and moisturize. Face Primer in general gets your face ready for makeup, creating a smoother and even canvas. So does Aloe Vera Gel, and it leaves your pores looking smaller. Sounds good to me, lol. If you are using a powder foundation you can apply your aloe vera gel before your makeup (make sure to let the gel DRY!!) or if you are using a liquid foundation, you can mix the two or just apply it before...the choice is yours.

I actually like this as my face primer now, better than my MAC, ELF, Revlon...im in love with my simple Fruit of the Earth Aloe, which only cost 4 bucks....=)

You can use any aloe vera gel, or fresh aloe Vera, but make sure it is 100% aloe and its CLEAR!!!

Also Aloe Vera Gel is GOOOOOD for your skin...all natural & healthy. You cant beat that right?


Not SO Blueberry

Hey Beauties!!!

This Polish is by Revlon, and omg it smells so good...yummy blueberries!!!! Im happy they now have nail polish that actually smells good...You can pick this up at any drugstore.
