July 4th & 5th

Sometimes I have a hard time being serious lol 








Hey everyone ! I know its been awhile, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend !
Mine was pretty cool, it could have been a tiny bit better ! But hey I always have next year. For July 4th my co-worker invited me to her apartment in Long Island City, and she made us delicious food ! We tried to see the fireworks but there was buildings blocking it  ! What a disappointment that was. The next morning I got ready and headed out to the beach. I always like to get off at 116th street Far Rockaway Beach, 105th street has an amazing arepa place, You guys totally need to check that out this summer. The weather was so beautiful this weekend, I look forward to more !

Anti-Dress

Jumpsuits



Jumpsuits




















For all my girls that dont like wearing dresses this one is for you.
I know a lot of girls that dislike wearing dresses and I get asked a lot about what you should wear if you have an event to go to and dont want to wear a dress.
The first four jumpsuits above are formal and can easily be worn to any event.
The black one shoulder romper is great for an outdoor event where perhaps the weather is pretty warm.
The last two jumpsuits above are the best for those events where it is mandatory to wear a dress, and guess what ? They'll never know you're really wearing a jumpsuit ! You'll be sneaky and gorgeous at the same time LOL.

Back To Curls !

If you want your hair back to its natural curly texture then you must stop everything you're doing. Straightening, dying etc...
When I was blond I was a fifteen year old girl dying her own hair at home (awful idea)
After a year I started to notice my curls were looser and that was enough for me to dye my hair black and start my repair process. 

 I stopped dying my hair, I stopped using flat irons (haven't used a flat iron in over two years WOO !) I cut my hair into a short bob so my repair process would speed up. I switched to organic products, I used treatments every two weeks, and I got haircuts every three to four months. After a year and a half my hair bounced back ! I was extremely happy and grateful for that. Since then I have had the urge to be blond again, but let's face it curls do look amazing blond. Every curl is much more noticeable and vibrant when it's a lighter color. Recently I did research on some curly hair salons and I decided to go to Hair Rules salon to start out with some highlights. My experience was okay, the colorist was amazing and very gentle with my curls but I was not happy with how the stylist styled my hair. Their method on how to style curly hair is unheard of. First of all they refused to listen to what I wanted, I told them that I always diffuse my hair because I'm too Impatient to wait for it to dry and also because my hair takes the product better when I diffuse my hair. They refused to do that because they so strongly believed that their styling method was much more effective. After washing my hair they left hair drenched in water they didn't even bother to at least squeeze some of the water out of my hair. The stylist kept insisting that I had wavy hair which we all know isn't the case. She parts my hair down the middle brushed the top down and adds wavy moose. Then she puts my chair back to the point I was almost hanging upside down and begin to diffuse only hair of my hair. Fifteen minutes later she has me sit under a dryer because according to them the dryer will give my hair volume. When I was done drying under the drying they sit me down to "fluff" my hair. I made it known that I hated the way my hair looked so to make me happy she tried giving my hair volume by roughly shaking my hair with my head upside down and then she proceeds to add hair spray in my hair. Boyyyyy was I upset !!! Especially since I ended up paying $208.

Here is what my hair looked like....


The next morning I styled my own hair and here is what my hair looks like NATURALLY !...See the huge difference ?



 After going to the salon I thought about starting to go to the Frederic Fekkai salon but nothing made more secure than going to Hair Rules to see just the colorist. I couldn't risk going somewhere that would ruin my texture I had come too far repairing my hair so I knew that if I was going to ever go light again I was going to pamper my hair everyday and go to a good colorist that understands curls to make sure it stayed beautiful and healthy. Since I've lightened my hair I have used new treatments. 

Here are the treatments I'm trying below
Deep Conditioners



So far I have only used the Morrocan Oil treatment and I have reviewed this product in the past. It is a must have, treat your hair with this mask atleast every two weeks.




My styling products haven't changed much but I just recently purchased the items below. They all smell amazing, Shea Moisture works wonders, I cant say much about the other products because I feel like I need to use it a bit longer in order to give an honest opinion.

Back To Brooklyn















Around Thanksgiving I moved out of Brooklyn and I miss it so much. I can't wait to move back, hopefully during summer or after summer but hopefully sooner than that.
The weather was beautiful on that day even though we had a random cold wind that kept coming and going.
It was really nice to finally take some time out to hang out with friends since Ive been busy working and interning. Im trying my hardest to find a balance but its not easy and my blog has been suffering because of it. Ive been thinking of new ways to keep my blog going so I think on days that I cant do an outfit post ill do reviews/beauty post etc. 

stay tuned !
