reflection '13

It's so crazy that in a little over 12 hours, it will be a new year!  2014!  Wow!  Where did the time go?

In 2013, I converted my blog over to Birth of a Fashion Blogger because I wanted to showcase more on my own style to everyone!  
I think I did pretty well for being a freshman at this!

Hey everyone!!  We all know how TERRIFIED I am of hair color.  Even though I have experimented with all kinds of hairstyles, the technique that I am most afraid of is the art of color!  Mine always end up with some sort of ombre effect (which is most likely to happen with this unit), but I wanted to share some photos of it before I changed it up!

Hey Guys!  5th week of Holiday Glam is all about texture!  The lines, angles, frills, ruffles, etc of it all!

Hey Guys!  Back with a weekly dose of Holiday Glam!  This week, I am embracing the color purple.  This is one of my favorite colors (for my daughter and myself).  It's girly enough without going into PINK overload.  (I still love my pink though)

HI EVERYONE!!!  I am super excited about this series that I am working on!  
It's my Holiday Glam 2013 GRWM (get ready with me) series where I am going to share a Holiday look from head to toe every Friday, up to the weekend before Christmas!  
I have been challenging myself to start and finish sets of videos/posts related to holidays and events.  
I must say, it's a bit harder than I expected, but I am up for it!

Let's show some love for the body cons!!  This dress just makes me happy.  So very happy! lol  
It hugs in all the right places.  With the print, if you are NOT having a "I love my body" day, it's sure to conceal whatever it is that you are not happy with.  The length is perfect, not too short/long.  And it's easy to style.  You can pretty much add any color to it, but I had to pop it out with some red!

Hey ladies and gentlemen!  Dropping in to show you this BOMB sweatshirt that I got from Mart of China.  Mart of China is an online clothing (and everything else) site.  
I have worn a dress from them before and the whole transaction went by smoothly!

uncertain thoughts....

2:25:00 PM

Lately I have been going through so many emotions.  There are so many things going on in my life right now that I can't even begin to organize my thoughts correctly.  I have EXACTLY 60 days to find a new place to live, I really want to find a new job and I was thinking of going back to school.

O NECKLACE REVIEW

10:00:00 AM
I received this gorgeous necklace c/o O Necklace.  O Necklace provides MonogrammedName, Engraved and Initial necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings.  They are available in a variety of metals, as well as Swarovski crystal and Diamond options as well! Something for every price point!

I chose the 24k Gold Plated Two letter Monogram showcasing a smaller first initial and and larger last initial.  I was a bit skeptical at first because I have had monogrammed necklaces before that just wasn't up to par.  Either they bent after the first wear or looked cheap.

I hope that everyone enjoyed their Independence day festivities!  I sure did!  My day started off in a blur because I had to work (I haven't worked on Independance day in FOREVER!), but afterwards, I hurried home, changed up, combed my daughters hair and off we went to my family's house!  We ate all sorts of fattening foods and the fired off TONS of fireworks later in the evening!  I was so out of it that I didn't take one single photo, which I regret, but I had a lot of fun last night!

Just wanted to share with you a few items that I'm DROOLING over from JustFab!  I have been on the watch with a couple of these, but for the most part, everything is from my July showroom!

There is a little bit of history as it relates to this hair!  I can't seem to find the post, but I did a review {video} on this hair from DS Hair Extensions earlier this year, and I just wanted you guys to see the transition it has been through.  This texture is called the Brazilian Petite loose curl.  



I decided to make another unit using this hair a few weeks ago {video} straightening it out to see how it would react.  Here's an instagram photo:


As you can see, it straightened really well!  Until the humidity hit it!  It did exactly what I knew it would and try to revert back to its natural curly state once the humidity (and some rain) hit it.  After thinking about, I preferred this hair straight just because it was so much easier for me to maintain, so I decided to relax it using a Lusters relaxer kit.  I purchased 2 kits from my local Target and this was the outcome of it!









Absolutely LOVING this hair!!  When I relaxed it, it still had a slight wave to it (I didn't expect it to be bone straight) but nothing that a blow dryer and curling iron could not fix!  I am so excited about this unit and I can see me having it for a very long time!  DS Hair Extension Brazilian Petite Curl Loose + Me = LOVE!!!

WHAT YOU'RE LOVING
