So I finally took the big leap and had a design cut into my sidecut! I took to Facebook with a picture from pinterest of a sidecut design on natural hair. Few of my friends immediately tagged their barbers. Most of the barbers were too far away.

When my friend Antwan tagged his barber, Jay Kutti, I should have know that he was destined to cut my hair, lolx. After being tagged, Jay reached out to me via Facebook inbox with his business number to hash out the details. He was only 20 minutes away and he had been wanting to do the design that I was wanting.

Located at Hairnette’s, an Anderson SC salon and barbershop in the heart of downtown, Jay Kutti was very professional, organized and at 20.00 I must say reasonably priced. He sets appointments, very quick and as you guys see his skills are excellent! This was his FIRST time doing this design.

Quick Deets:
1.) I only paid 20.00 for the cut and design.
2.) My wait time was not long. ( Roughly 15 minutes)
3.) The process wasn’t long at all.
4.) Customer Service was excellent. Jay was very friendly and professional. He went above and beyond to make sure that ALL of his customers were satisfied with the services that they received.
5.) The atmosphere was very laid back! It truly felt like I was amongst friends. The room and his tools were very clean and fresh.
6.) He accepts debit and provides receipts!

I have decided to make him my barber and strongly feel that you all should too!

Surprise party outfit pick

So for Lauren’s party I decided to pick up this little number or should I say pieces! I stopped by Ross with my brother and couldn’t resist shopping. I came across the bottoms first and the peplum top second. The price of the “set” was less than 10.00. I felt so accomplished, lolx.

I’m stumped on what type of shoes to wear and how to wear my hair. Let me know any thoughts below.

What To Wear To A Surprise Party

parent family fashion, What She Wore/ OOTD

So my best friend Lauren is having a party Saturday. I can’t say where because she reads this blog but I can tell you she’s having a party. ( she knows this but doesn’t know where)

I’m stumped on what to wear! I have a few outfits in mind but I honestly don’t know!

Here’s some things I do know:

1.) I don’t want to be off beat with the place and atmosphere. By this I mean I don’t want to be over nor under dressed.
2.) I want to wear flats. I hate partying in heels! My feet hurts really easily these days so heels are out for this event.
3.) I want to be comfortable. Nothing too loose but nothing too tight.

Here some of the pieces I’m thinking of. Some I actually own already.

I’m also on this gladiator high! Ask anybody who knows me and they will tell you I’m the gladiator queen! I love those shoes! With the thigh high being all the rave, I want to incorporate a pair into my outfit Saturday. My problem is will I be able to find a pair before Saturday???

I’m loving these but I know there’s no way I will have them by Saturday ( but I will be purchasing them!)

20140723-133608-48968926.jpg

These are perfect! They are the Haus Von Lila Dogma inspired sandal! I love them. These babies will give me the sex appeal that I crave without the pain I don’t need.

Well what would you guys suggest? I’m going to Instagram and my other social media outlets for feedback.

So I’m totally late with this post but it’s my ootd from Independence Day! I was going to style the Lauren James “shorties” featured in my ” First Look” but I ended up straying away from the whole “red, white and blue” theme. I went to a Independence Fun Day style cookout hosted by my friend Lauren. ( photos will be included below) I met some great people and I’m now a card trick master.

So what did you guys do for the holiday? What did you all wear? I hope it was a safe and fun one.
