Hey guys! How’s everyone tonight? I hope that everyone is staying warm tonight! I will be headed back to work tomorrow so please pray for my safe journey to and from work in all of this mess!

I wanted to stop by to let you guys know that I have new hair from an aliexpress.com vendor by the name of TD Hair! I will do a total of four post about the hair. These post will consist of an initial review, an install review, a first week review and a one month update. Now I will give mini updates about the hair weekly letting you guys know how the hair is holding up. I have not decided if I want to color the hair. If you guys would like me to do so, let me know. I will be happy to document the process!

I am excited to share this experience with you guys. This will be my first time making a u-part wig with a closure, but I have faith that it will turn out good. I will be using methods from the ladies of YouTube.

If you guys haven’t read my Virgin Hair Nightmare post please feel free to here:

New Kinds of Talent: IceJJFish Daniel Mcloyd

LuLuNews, Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion, Pay It Forward, Uncategorized

So I know you guys have been seeing the videos floating around from a guy named IceJJFish or Daniel Mcloyd! Wait, what you haven’t? Well never fear I have some to share with you here! Before I share them I want to just talk a little bit about Mr.Mcloyd and I how I found out about the viral sensation.

One day someone, who shall remain nameless..Chanity, shared a video on my timeline. Now most of the time when someone shares a video, the person has some type of vocal ability. Not always Beyonce  but hey we can only have one Queen Bey! Btw it’s JayZ‘s birthday. Happy Bday Hov! Anyways, back to the video. So I tapped on the video and received the shock of my life.  This guy was interesting. He had made my day. I had to watch more. I subscribed to his YouTube channel a month ago when he was at 6,000 views. Now he’s at 20,000. Just like Sharkeisha, Mcloyd has WorldStar Hip Hop to thank for helping him to become somewhat of a household name. 

He even has covers of his music!!!! Hey he’s doing something right?

Despite the overflow of tone deaf, pain staking, but yet sometimes funny singing in each video, there’s a something about the songs that he have written that keeps them stuck in your head. His Itunes hit “On the Floor” has been a favorite of many since he debuted it on his  YouTube channel. Love him or hate him, you can not deny this man has some type of star quality.

How do you guys feel about the new star? Hey I want to say that if you need a Stylist Daniel, hit me up.

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.

These Are The Makings Of You!!

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday

So guess what day it is……..Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday!!!! Yes it’s actually the day when thirst is real and okay! So I am going to quench today’s dehydration with Tyler Lepley and Curtis Mayfield! I bet  you guys are like “What the Hell”? Stick with me here, it will all come together below, lolx.

So yesterday   “The Makings of You.” By Curtis Mayfield popped up on Itunes Radio while I was trying to find material for today’s posts. I didn’t have anymore skips. Now the funny thing is Jay-Z and Kanye sampled this song for a song on the “Watch the Throne Album.” This one one of my favorite albums of 2011 and two of my favorite songs were the song at the beginning and end. ( I actually have more than 2, hey it was a dope album) The song in the beginning was “No Church In The Wild“. This song appears everywhere even in one of Tyler Lepley YouTube videos. He even quoted what I say is  Hov’s best line from this song as his caption for his Instagram photos.

20131119-095844.jpg

Now the last song is “The Joy” featuring Pete Rock, Charlie Wilson and Kid Cudi. One of my favorite favorite parts was when Jay come in on his verse with “This is Mama’s sh#%”. That made me love this song.  This is the song where they sampled “The Makings Of You.”

Now how do Curtis and Tyler mesh. Well I never really liked the song by Curtis Mayfield until I had a chance to listen to it yesterday and listened to the words. While I listened to the words and how sweet they were someone popped in my head and a picture showed up in my Twitter Timeline of a gentleman wearing a pair of Jordan Sneakers. Jordan sneakers are the favorite shoe of  that someone who popped up. ( That I am pissed off at right now) He favors the guy in the picture. The guy in the picture was Tyler Lepley. It happened to  have always been one of my favorite pictures of Tyler. Now do you guys see how everything relates? Isn’t it just grand???  You guys know how I love the power of coincidence. Now this song will forever remind me of Tyler, lolx.

Listen to the words of this song. They are beautiful beyond belief. I can’t begin to describe the feeling I get when I hear this song. I was actually moved by some of the comments on the video.

My “Bad Virgin Hair” Experience!

Broke Girls Diaries, parent family fashion, Pay It Forward, Reviews

Hey guys!  I wanted to stop by with a quick story about my bad virgin hair experience with a virgin hair company. Before I get into this story, I want to tell you guys about my displeasure with the company’s product. It’s not to bash the company, it’s just to inform you before you purchase from this company.

So in 2011, I was out to eat and I met this young lady. We started to talk about weaves. I love to meet a girl who knows about hair so that I can learn more. I was telling her about my install and how i felt that the hair in my head had been processed. I’m ok with processed Indian Hair just tell me before you charge me. She recommended a site to me that sold quality virgin hair, The Virgin Hair Fantasy.  Well I don’t just go by the word of mouth alone, I went to YouTube. Also, she hadn’t purchased the hair yet. She was going by what she seen in her friend’s head.

The same hair  straightened after a month of wear.  Yall don’t go in on my eyebrows lolx.

20131111-143336.jpg

After seven months of wear and straighten. This “Indian Virgin Hair” always returned to its “natural ” wave pattern but I didn’t like the wave pattern that it had.

My  Virgin Hair Fantasy Experience

What Made Me Buy:

I typed in on YouTube “The Virgin Hair Fanstay” and a slew of good videos came up. I kept visiting the website and watching reviews. At this time, I was new to the YouTube review game. What I did not know was most of these ladies ( well actually all that I had seen at the time) received their for FREE!  So not seeing any bad reviews on this company  seeing nothing but positivity on their website and wanting “The Virgin Hair Fantasy” t-shirt, in March 2012, I gave in and purchased the hair! I purchase two bundles of their Brazilian Virgin Body Wave in 16 and 18 inches! I also purchased a 14 inch Brazilian Virgin Body Wave closure. I went with 2 bundles because of the length and the size of my head. I would love the whole Dianna Ross look but at that time I worked for a boss who was not trying to allow my greatness, lolx.

20131111-143917.jpg20131111-143844.jpg

The 14 inch closure and weft in Brazilian Virgin Body Wave. This picture does not belong to me. It’s from The Virgin Hair Fantasy

The Price:

I actually had my pricing wrong in my head before I had started to write this piece. I am glad that I am an email hoarder!  You will see an invoice inserted in this post. Yes, it is my actual invoice that was emailed to me. Back to the subject at hand. I paid 481.89 for two bundles and a closure. Now to break it down on the price here goes. For the 16 inch bundle the price was 145.00. The 18 inch was 155.00. The 14 inch closure was 140.00. Now I needed my hair done by the weekend so I asked for next day shipping and the price of that was 41.89.

20131111-150837.jpg

This is my invoice. No I did not copy and paste an invoice from google either.

Receiving The Hair

I honestly didn’t think that the hair would come before Friday but it did! I had ordered on the 13th or 14th and received it on the 15th. I just remember it was a week day because I had to go in to work at 11am that day. Anyways, the hair came Fed Ex and my grandaddy was here to pick it up. When I finally came in from work that night I was excited to see my package! Back in those days, TVHF was sending the hair in Robin Egg Blue style envelopes with the TVFH dolls sticker used to tape it close, well at least that’s how mine came. On the front of the envelope was a label stating what was inside. Almost like the Avery mailing labels you buy. I honestly can’t describe the smell of the hair, it didn’t smell bad like the infamous corn chip smell but it smelled like something I had smelled before in hair. If that makes any sense. Inside of the package also contained two other things and guess what one of them wasn’t, The Virgin Hair Fantasy shirt! I was confused. I thought that everyone who bought the hair received a shirt as a thank you. I wasn’t reviewing the hair for them, so no shirt for me. They did give me a handwritten thank you note with the TVFH dolls on the front and a church flyer style hair care instruction sheet. You’re  Welcome The Virgin Hair Fantasy!

Who Styled My Hair

Now you guys remember at the beginning of the story when I stated that I was rocking the “virgin indian hair” so the stylist who sold it to me was claiming, well I was not making the same mistake twice and going back to her.  I wanted the best in Anderson County and probably the in our whole state of SC to do my “real virgin weave.” Who is the best you may ask, Well it is Ms. Kalisha West of Kalisha’s Creations! She has worked with stars such as Beyonce and Angie Stone, just to name a few, so I knew I would be in good hands. My good friend works for her so I messaged her to ask her how could I get an appointment. Well it just so happened that the owner was on vacation so my friend offered to do my hair. I agreed. I had known Kamisha for over 10 years so I trusted her.

Just to give a side note about Kalisha’s Creation, it is a very good salon. I say this because all of her stylist, including herself,f go through extensive training to not only provide the latest and greatest in styles  but they provide each customer with proper hair care. My real hair was actually healthy under my sew-in and grew the longest that I had seen it grow in two years.

When I got there, I showed her the list that was provided by TVHF for styling and maintenance of the hair. She followed all of them but one, sealing the wefts. Now I am not throwing fault at her at all. If you watch the virgin hair fantasy review videos to this day, I will say 99% of the ladies reviewing this hair will say that they “DID NOT” seal their wefts. They will also state how little the hair sheds.

The hair

This hair shed like  none other. I was ok with a little bit of shedding but when people know that you have been in a spot because you left hair there, that’s not cool at all! I was not trying to mark any territory. I had clogged my drains in my house, just from getting in the shower and wetting my hair. The hair matted and tangled even in the closure. I brushed the hair daily and it still tangled. I know that all weave has the tangle  potential, especially curly but this was something so new to me. I tried every product that I could think of and still no luck. Even after my install time was up, I took the hair out of my head and let it sit in detangling shampoo over night and tadaaa… nothing. The hair, just in case you were wondering, is in the trunk of my granddaddy’s car.  His car is in the shop but look at the pictures. My hair looks a lot thinner due to the shedding and matting.

20131111-143602.jpg

It’s blurry but you can see the hair. This is the first day of my install. I had just left the salon. The hair is in its natural state and we used both bundles and the closure. The Virgin Hair Fantasy Hair.

20131111-143633.jpg

The second day of my install. I was at my sisters baby shower. The hair was already shedding then. No that is not my boyfriend, lolx.  The Virgin Hair Fantasy Hair

20131111-143703.jpg

A better and clear picuture of the hair during the first week of the install. That’s my sister whose baby shower I was attending. The Virgin Hair Fantasy Hair

One month after my install. My closure had started matting so bad that started pushing back and the part was no longer showing. See how flat the hair started looking! The Virgin Hair Fantasy Hair

20131111-143811.jpg

One month before removing this hair finally in June. Compare the hair to the first install which was in March. Its thin and sparse.  The closure is matted.

The Bad Truth About My Whore Hair

So the funniest thing happened after my hair fiasco! I went back to YouTube to figure out what I had done wrong with the hair and all kinds of “The Virgin Hair Fantasy” videos were popping up. Even the bad ones. So then I started to learn about “The Guru Game.”  Women who had paid for the hair was telling the truth about this hair. Some of the videos were made before bought the hair. “How did I miss these videos?”  I thought to myself. Well for one, I only typed in the name of the company. When I type in “Bad Virgin Hair Fantasy” a good bit of videos came up. I wish I had known to type that in the box before purchasing this hair.

The Guru Game

Well those ladies that I watched the first go round were and some still are YouTube Gurus. How the Guru game works is that companies will  send out their best of the best merchandise  to Gurus for review. So yes, a lot of the times when Gurus give their “honest” opinion, it is just that. They are not receiving the same product that we are. That is why it’s always best to watch product reviews on hair and some other items that were purchased by someone who had to pay to get it. Now I am a business owner myself, so I understand why companies do it. You get a popular person with loads of views to review your product. Once they rave about your  product your sales go up. I would never do that because I have integrity. If you pay your hard earn money for something, You deserve the best product. I actually  let a friend of mine review one of my products for free and she received the same exact product as any paying customer would. Now I am not against gaining exposure, just send everyone the same product.  Let me know if you guys want me to write another post on how to find reviews.

Will I purchase hair from or recommend this company

Hell No! I will never waste anymore money with that company. They could send me free hair today and I still would not recommend them. When you find me 10 young ladies that paid for their hair with their hair earned money and says the same thing that Morgan Taylor or Lakiastar states about the hair, then I would maybe recommend their product. What prompted me to write this post was the women who were posting about their bad experiences in the comment sections of many of these Guru’s videos. The funny thing is, if you make a  negative truth video with a lot of views they  will then want to rectify the situation with you.  What about these women who are commenting? I have commented on several videos and they have yet to extend any type of offer of exchange with me. Instead of sending the gurus good hair, how about taking a day and contacting the women who actually paid for crappy hair and offering them some of the good hair that you send out. It’s not like they hadn’t already paid for the hair. Now if you want to still purchase the hair after my review and story, that’s fine. You may actually have a better experience than I did. I am just sharing my story and my “Truth” about this company with you guys.

Now it’s Your Turn

Speak up and out! Let me hear some of your horror stories about some “virgin hair” companies. Has anyone who has paid for their hair from TVHF received what I like to call “guru style hair”? Did I leave out anything? If so, feel free to ask any questions below! Be sure to share your thoughts, opinions, stories or whatever you feel with me in the comment section below!

5.)e.l.f 11 Piece Brush Collection. I payed 15.00 for the set during a 1/2 off sale over the summer and I actually love them. I have never payed more than 3.00 for a set so I figured why not step my game up and purchase some “real” brushes. I was going to invest in a luxury line of brushes but I thought I’d start off light. Once I get the jist of what I am doing, lolx, I will purchase the Chanel or Napoleon Perdis set!  Seen Below!

Fashion :

1.) My Flannel Shirt. I purchased this shirt last year at The Goodwill when I used to work in that area. It’s a boy’s size from Target by the Cherokee brand! It has been my go to piece all year because it’s light enough to wear in the warmer months but thick enough to layer with in the colder months.

 

2.) My Combat Boots! Military is on trend again and thank you God! I paid more than I wanted to for my favorite pair of combat boots in 2011 but it was well worth it! Just like my flannel shirt, my combat boots have been my go to piece this whole year!

combat boots

These are the exact boots that I purchased from Kmart 2 years ago(just different linning). I found these on Amazon get them here: http://www.amazon.com/Military-Combat-Fold-over-Multiple-Apparel/dp/B00BFMCNL6/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383336970&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=bongo+combat+boots Not sure if they are the same brand but the make is the exact same!

3.) My Fresh Prince Shirt! Unfortunatley, I was not able to cop the Bel Air 5’s that dropped last month but I did recieve a dope Fresh Prince Tee that I blogged about from an Etsy Seller, ClothingHub. Be sure to check out my review on that piece!

Fresh Prince

To find out where to purchase this click here: https://luluchris58.wordpress.com/2013/10/27/tee-review-from-clothinghub-and-ootd-fail/

4.) My LA Hearts Sweat Pants. Here’s another piece that I have worn all year around. I am  here for sweats! I purchased these sweats from my then local Pacsun at a closing sale. I also purchase a shirt about Nachos but who knows where that is? I am a lanky and shaped so odd so I hate sweat pants that shirnk in the dryer so these pants get an A from me! The only thing is I think they use to have writing down the side and they have faded.

Since they no longer carry my sweats and hoodie I decided to just add the link here :http://www.pacsun.com/la-hearts/womens/?OriginId=GOG&medium=tsa&XCID=P:google-La+Hearts%7CEnhanced_Search%7CUSA-La+Hearts-la%20hearts&gclid=CPL7oOe1xLoCFfFj7AodU2sA3w

I figured you guys could find some great pieces and they are having a sale!

5.) My DIY Camo Jacket. Like I stated before, Military is on trend so my DIY camo jacket gets a slot on must wear list! I thirfted this jacket last year and reconstructed it with diy patches and and some of my favorite buttons! I only paid a 1.00 for it because the clerk knew my cousin!

I have two Camo Jackets for sale! Be sure to visit my Instagram @LuLuChris58HWShorts to check those out!

*Next Month this part of my list will be more diverse, I promise, lolx.*

Food and Beverages

1.) Eggs! I have been loving eggs like crazy! I have been making them in almost every way possible.

2.) Cinnamon! I am officially addicted! I eat it on waffles, drink it in my tea!

3.) Chocolate Chip Eggo Waffles with Jiff Peanutbutter and Cinnamon. I have my son hooked now.

4.) Lipton Tea hot with lemon and cinnamon. I am already a hot tea and lemon lover! The cinnamon just gives it that extra kick.

5.)  Roman Noodles. I dont know how I renewed a love in this struggle menu item but I am back on the noodle train! I have been eating these babies like crazy!

TV, Books and YouTube.

I decided to combine these three together because  there isn’t enough to make five favorites in each!

1.) Tyme the Infamous. I do not know why but I have been watching her videos again, alot. I think it may be her music. I will add one of her videos below!

2.) Notorious Kia. I have always loved her videos. She’s hilarious, crafty and stylish! Sounds like someone I know.

3.) I really do not have any favorite books but I will be reviewing the book “Getting Back Together.” so I thought I would mention that here!

4.) Days of Our Lives. Yes this is my favorite show. I have been watching this show more because of the drama with Nicole and Eric! I can not wait until Kristen is finally busted!

5.) Scandal!  Yes guys, Olivia Pope is back! Its time to break out the Gladiators!(no not really). Even if you are not a Scandal fan or wanted to jump on the Pope Dope bandwagon, watch the episode that gives you notes on Season 1. It’s so to point. You could go into Season 2 feeling like you know everything. Get your life with Scandal.

Random Faves:

Ok in this section I am just going to talk about some random favorite stuff!

1.) Tamar Braxton’s “Hot Sugar” video. It has me amazed. Everyone hated on that video so bad, even some Tamartians, but I don’t see the problem with the video honestly.

2.) New Atlanta. Everyone is saying that there will not be a season 2 nor a reunion. I hope that these are just rumors. I actually liked that show and the tomchuckery that came along with it. I was here for it!  Also, I got to tweet with some of the cast!
3.) Tyler Lepley! If you do not know why then check out my link here.

4.)ITunes Radio Jazz station. Although ITunes Radio plays the same music over again, it’s soothing!

5.) Au$tin Martin! We follow each other on  Twitter and is a very cool and humble guy! He also shouted my blog out for me! Be sure to check him out if you already haven’t! I have a link above!

Be sure to show all of the Bloggers, YouTubers, merchants and Artist love!

Sorry this list was so long. Hopefully next month’s will be recorded for you guys!

Hot Sugar? What’ s All The Bad Fuss?

LuLuNews, parent family fashion, random

So I know I am late to talk about this subject but to be honest *tbh time* I didn’t watch the video until yesterday. Here’s why; I am not a Tamartian, so I know her music but I am not a true stan. Does that make any sense. I hope so. Anyways I had been hearing how horrible her latest visual for “Hot Sugar” was and finally yesterday I heard something that made me decide to finally watch. When I went over to check it out on Tamar’s YouTube, I  was expecting a hot mess.  Instead I watched the video and was wondering where did all of this bad fuss come from? I’m not saying that the video was great but I am saying that it wasn’t as bad as people had lead me to believe. What are your thought on this? If you haven’t seen it, guess what, I linked it below. Yes, you’re welcome.

 

 

The first time I had heard the video just flat out sucked was here:

Friday Favorites: Another Segment Featuring Au$tin Martin!

Friday Favorites

So before I get into everything, I want to shout out rapper Au$tin Martin! I got to tweet with him last night and hear some of his music! Infact Im vibing to it now! I just want to say that after tweeting with him I was inspired to create Friday Favorites. I was telling him that I was mad that I was late to the party and I had to add him to my “Monthly Favorites”. I just couldn’t wait that long, lolx.  Each Friday I will name five of my favorites. I will still have a monthly favorites. I just wanted to bring a few good things to you guys.

Friday Favorites List 1:

1.) Chocolate Chip Eggo Waffles with Peanut Butter and Cinnamon

2.) Cinnamon! Yes I am about that cinny life! I have been eating it on everything and drinking it in my tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

3.) Au$tin Martin “I am Au$tin Martin Vol.1” and my favorite song on there is a track called “Wake Up”. I also want to tell you that just like Ty Lepley, Au$tin is very humble and sweet. He writes his own music and produce his own beats. He also follows me on Twitter. Find him at @IAMAUSTINMARTIN. Oh and Ladies he’s eye icecream!

4.) The Club Takeover video of Au$tin Martin and Ty Lepley! Yes you guys know I can’t have a favorites list with out Mr. Lepley and the biceps. Who ever made this video with the Marvin Gaye track “I Want You” playing in the back ground while Tyler and his biceps are being featured is a genius! Tell your mama thank you!

5.) Bitstrips. Although its going to get me in big trouble, I now see that it can be used to market and advertise for my business. See there’s always a positive light at the end of the tunnel!

Now you guys know sharing is caring so here’s the Club Take Over Video Starring Au$tin Martin, Ty Lepley, his Biceps and many more!

Sweet Baby LeBron Check out those Biceps!  You’re Welcome Ladies
