So it has been three months since I’ve had this hair in from the Ali Express Company Sophia Hair. Here’s a quick review on the hair so far.
To see my first look and initial review click the links below:
First Look
Initial Review

In the three months that I’ve worn this hair I’ve had shedding and tangling but only from the 20 and 18 inch. My 14 inch almost NEVER sheds. If you follow my blog, then you’ll know that the 14 inch bundle has been dyed and still minimal shedding. I say minimal because ALL hair sheds. I just rarely see any Grey hair anywhere. The 20 and 18 inch de tangles but with a lot of time and maintenance put into the process. The more I de tangle, the thinner the bundles become and the shorter the lengths get. Also, as mentioned in my previous review, once heat hits this hair, the hair was not returning back to it kinky state. Well it that’s still true. Even after my first wash with my stylist. That’s annoying to me because I left my hair out for a vixen sew in and I’m natural.

I can say the hair takes color well and holds flexirod curls well. I still have my 16 inch bundle and I plan to use it as clip ins. I will make a separate review for those.

Please feel free to let me know if I missed anything. Do not hesitate to ask any questions. I will let you guys know if I recommend this hair in my final review.

My mom said I look like Boy George in my hat! Culture Club vibe it is then, lolx!

The Deets:
Head wrap: local Beauty Supply Store Scarf. ( I think it was a 1.00 I bought it in 2009)
Blazer: Local Thrift Store: .50 Talbot’s kid brand
Shirt: Goodwill: .50 Not sure of the brand ( I cut the lace collar off. People thought that I was lying when I told them it was a “grandma shirt”)
Shorts: Goodys : 9.99 Not sure of the brand
Shoes: TJ Maxx: 29.99 Report brand

So my sister had her baby shower at her old job, Wild Wings, on a Sunday. My outfit choice was last minute. I saw the shirt that I had thrifted and my black shorts just hanging around so I felt it was destined to be paired together. The blazer was just my signature touch.

Catch This Beatdown: Introducing Unicorn Beauty 101 with Dameion Lorenzo

Beat Face Beauties, Broke Girls Diaries, diy, Files of Style, The Challenge

20140228-210428.jpg

Hey guys! How’s everyone on this lovely Friday? I hope that everyone is doing great! I had to get my IPhone repaired today and it was a price tag. I’m just glad to have it functioning again, even if it is at the cost of a flat wallet!

I wanted to stop by with some exciting news! I am starting a new segment with a hot, young, fresh and new Florida make up artist by the name of Dameion Lorenzo! Dameion, or Dame as I like to call him, is a dear friend of mine! His brand, Unicorn Faces By Dame is about to take the world by a glitter storm! In this segment, Unicorn Beauty 101, Dameion will be teaching us how to give the perfect beatdown! From finding the right foundation shade to achieving the perfect brow, we will get the scoop on it all! Think of it as DIY for the face!

How it will work:

There will be advice and challenges done in this segment! For the advice part, Dameion will offer his knowledge on certain topics that we may struggle with in the make up and skin department. For example, finding the right skin foundation for full coverage or finding the right BB Cream for oily skin. We will also be happy to take your questions on social media and in the comment section below for a segment topic!

For the challenge portion, Dameion will create a look on himself or a model for me to recreate. Once I have recreated the look, it will be posted on this blog with full instructions as well as mistakes that I may have made and Dame’s advice on how to correct the problem. The teacher will be grading my work, hunny!

I can not wait to bring this to you all! I think that it will be so much fun! Don’t worry if you don’t get the look quite right, Dameion makes house calls!

Mini Haul Karmaloop, Rainbow, Body Central and Other Stuff

Broke Girls Diaries, Files of Style, Haul, Mommy's Corner

Hey guys! How’s everyone doing today? Who’s enjoying being snowed in? I figured this would be the perfect time to pump out a few blog post!

I’ve been shopping! I’ve been shopping! *drunk in debt* I wanted to stop by with a few items for you guys! This will be part one. Since Mother Nature will not let me be great, I am having to wait on more packages, lolx.

I would like styling tips and ideas from you guys as well! So let’s jump right into it!

I have two items from Karmaloop.com! I used my rep points to purchase two black crop tops for 6.12! That was the price for both items together, including shipping!

20140212-155030.jpg

20140212-155047.jpg

The top crop top has faux leather on the shoulders. The crop top on the bottom overlaps in the back!

I was needing some simple cropped tops so I figured those two items would do!

Want items from Karmaloop.com at 20% off? Use code LULU58 at checkout and save big!

Next I have a Varsity Jacket from BodyCentral.com! I saw on ebates.com that there was a sale on all outerwear so I had to head over!

20140212-155603.jpg

This jacket was marked down to 10.00! With shipping and tax the item was 25.00!

Next item that I purchased was from Rainbow.com. Every time I think of this store I think of what one of my favorite youtubers calls a “Get it Girl Store”. Anyways, I came across an email stating that Rainbow was offering free shipping on items over 13.00! I had been eyeing a skirt that I wanted so I figured this would be the perfect time to grab the skirt!

20140212-163226.jpg

I love this skirt! I love the stained glass artwork style print. My grandad found the skirt offensive. How do you guys feel about it? Only con was that my skirt was coming unraveled at the seams but it wasn’t anything too bad. The cost of the skirt was 13.00 so I wasn’t too upset.

The next item was purchased at a store called Hammerick’s. I’m not sure if any states besides North and South Carolina has this store but this item should be available online.

20140212-163741.jpg

This shirt was on sale for 12.99. It’s sheer material and has the cutest little cats printed on it. My two favorite details are the gold collar tips and the opening in back! Also during that trip, I purchased a faux denim shirt for 7.99 but I’ve worn it already. It’s in my dirty clothes pile, lolx.

The next item was purchased from an EBay seller! I have been on the hunt for this for a while.

20140212-164457.jpg

A black faux leather skater skirt! I am so frugal at times so when I saw this item on google shopper for under 6.00 I knew I had to have it. I order it from an overseas seller, so the wait was long. I was fine with it. My only downside was that the skirt came wrinkled and just like the Rainbow skirt, the thread was coming unraveled. It’s not too bad for 6.00. I can make it work for me!

My next two items were from a quick trip to the thrift store in my town. I went in to purchase a few tees for work and I ended up finding these two pieces!

20140212-165812.jpg

20140212-165832.jpg

The camo jacket was 6.00 and the cardigan was 1.50. I think I may do a DIY project on the camo jacket. I know that I will distress it a bit. Let me know if you guys think I should add my DIY touch to the jacket and if I should do a post on it!

My last item was a gift from my boyfriend. He purchased it from GoJane.com.

20140212-170700.jpg

I’m not sure of the price that he paid for these but I’m loving these faux leather joggers!

That’s it for the mini haul! I hope that you guys enjoyed it! I want to know what was your favorite item and how would you style each piece! Also, I want to see what you guys are hauling! If you blog or make YouTube videos leave your link below or on any of my social media sites. Part two coming soon!

*Disclosure: Everything was purchased with my own money unless stated other wise! All opinions are my honest ones nor was I paid or compensated for this haul/review. Picture of Stained Glass Skirt belongs to Rainbow.com*
