First Wash and Useful Products

Reviews, Uncategorized

Hey guys! I wanted to stop by with an update on this hair that I am currently wearing from the companies Carina Hair Co and Worlds Best Hair. Links to my initial review and one week update will be linked below. 

Yesterday I went for my first wash on my hair since the install. Because I’m natural, I only let my stylist wash my sew ins. The Carina Hair Co hair returned to its wavy state after its first wash. The World’s Best Hair hair had a wave pattern but it wasn’t a prominent as before.  Both companies’ hair are still shedding minimally and I am getting no matting what so ever. The tangling is manageable. It’s nothing that a paddle brush won’t get rid of. 

The products that are used to maintain this hair are: 

Spectrum Coconut oil ( when needed) by me
Products used at the salon

Wen shampoo and conditioner 

Mini smoothing oil 

Kenra Siliking gloss 
Please do not hesitate to let me know if I missed anything.

Dare or Spare, Haul, parent family fashion, Reviews

Hey guys! How’s everyone’s Saturday going? I hope that it’s going great. It’s going to be a lazy day for me today!

Anyways I wanted to stop by with part two of the mini haul! I know it has been a while since I wrote part one, but I had to wait on my items to come from the other sellers. Thanks to the snow storm, some of the items took a while to get here.

The first item is from a fellow Etsy seller, Rax Clothing! I saw this item while searching for a vintage sweatshirt. It’s a slogan from the Breck shampoo line.
20140301-103750.jpg20140301-103821.jpg20140301-103845.jpg

The total cost of the sweatshirt was 25.00. I do recommend this seller! The shipping was fast and inexpensive. The packaging was nice and I loved my mini coloring postcard! Order vintage items here! http://www.etsy.com/shop/raxclothing

The next item was purchased from a bigcartel seller that is no stranger when it comes to LuLuChris58, IllicitRags Vintage! I did a feature on this boutique for Christmas gift ideas. Since I couldn’t convince anyone to purchase this vintage beauties for me as a gift, I purchased them myself! They are the Vintage Reebok Joggers!

Although they come off as a powder blue on the screen, they are teal. ( which was mentioned in the description). I only paid 16.00 for these! *I do need some styling ideas if you guys would love to share any.* I do recommend the seller. She has loads of hip vintage items from many different eras. Her packaging was simply and neat. I loved her thank you note that she included. The shipping is reasonably priced and I received my item in a good time frame. Check out her items here! http://illicitragvintage.bigcartel.com

The next item is from Classic clothing. Classic Clothing is a UK based clothing brand found on Big Cartel and Asos Marketplace. I decided to use the stock photo for two reasons. I forgot to take pictures in the top and of the packaging. The top was 23.00 in USD. If you are in the UK, the price will be a lot lower. I would recommend this company but be aware that if you are in the US, the shipping will take a while. It was worth the wait. Next time I wear the top, I will take pictures in it! Promise! Shop with Classic Clothing here! http://www.justclassic.bigcartel.com

My last item is a vintage inspired item from the Nicki Minaj Collection from Kmart! I purchased these online from Kmart and got them at a great deal. I only paid 10.00 for them and that included shipping! I will say that these jeans are made for the curvier girl. I ordered a 4 and when I received them they had a perfect fit. When I wore them to my nephew's party, they felt a little loose. Either way, I still like them. Nicki has a lot of cute and affordable pieces. From cute link necklaces to hip galaxy bombers, I'm here for it! My only advice is if your curves are hidden like mine order a size down.

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*

The Fuss: Bound 2

parent family fashion, random, Uncategorized

Kim-Kanye-Kimye-Bound-2-620x350

Just like Tamar Braxton‘s “Hot Sugar”, I’m late on asking this question about Kanye’s “Bound 2”. I had heard so many bad things about the video that I had to go and see what the fuss was. It had been posted on my timeline on Facebook and one of my favorite YouTuber had mentioned how much she hated it and the song.
Before I give my thoughts on this I have to say that before “Yeezus” came out, I was a HUGE Kanye fan. I have owned every Kanye album. In fact the first album I ever bought, that wasn’t a bootleg, was “My Dark Twisted Fantasy”. I still have it on my IPhone. When I heard “Yeezus”, I was disappointed. I like a few songs on the album but it wasn’t the Kanye I was use to. Something was missing.

hotmess

Still can’t figure out why everyone went in on this video????

Bound 2 was one of the songs I liked. I love the Brenda Lee ” Sweet Nothing’s” sample. It’s the part that sounds a lot like Kim Kardashian saying “Uh huh honey, alright!” For the longest I thought it was her.
So I went to watch the video co starring Kim K after seeing Kanye on The Breakfast Club. I saw nothing wrong with it. I thought it was hilarious. Because I listened to the interview before hand, I was able to understand Kanye’s thought process behind the video. I’ve seen worse. I think that due to the fact that public opinion of Kim K isn’t one that is too good, people look for reasons to hate anything she does. If Kanye had casted another female as his co-star of the visual, he wouldn’t have caught as much flack! I hear a lot about how masoganistic Kanye West is and I have to disagree.(another topic for another time)

For Kicks and Giggles:

I know I’m late but how did you guys feel about Bound2? What’s the fuss? Do you guys love the song and hate the video? Do you guys hate both? I love it, if anybody cares, lolx. Oh and btw, the chrous says “Bound to falling in love” not “I am falling in love”..uh huh honey! Lolx.
