Having Fun With YouCam Makeup App

So just for fun I wanted to post some pics I took on #YouCamMakeup App.

I really love this app, whenever I am feeling stressed or need to clear my head…this is where I go.

This app is so much fun but yet I don’t get lost in it like social media. It allows me to be creative and expressive while trying so many different fun looks.

I recommend this app to anyone who loves to have fun with makeup and changing their looks without the commitment. And it’s a great way for makeup lovers to test different colors on their face before actually applying makeup.

This app has been my go-to in choosing the right makeup for my skin.

So I suggest trying it out, what have you got to lose…it’s FREE and it’s FUN, can’t get any better than that!

WOW! I Crochet Braided My Hair!

Happy Labor Day Everyone! I think that’s correct 🙂

This has been an interesting weekend…starting with Tropical Storm Hermine which dumped so much water here in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Well I decided, hey why not try something different with my hair…something I have been wanting to try for so long. So I did.

I am natural and have been for over 5 years and it has been quite a journey. With me raising two children (9 years old and 20 months old) and being a wife…Life gets busy along with my entrepreneurial journey. So I was sitting thinking what can I do to hair that will help me have one less “to do” on my list.

Then it hit me, why not try to crochet braid my hair. Hmmmm…..well I have never done it before, will it look okay? *Yeah, I am always having conversations with myself.*

So I watched some Youtube videos and did some research and decided to give a go. I went to our nearest hair supply store and bought my hair and crochet hook; went home washed my hair.

These are some of the products I used, all purchased from Wal-Mart.

Natural hair care products

First I used Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo. Next I used As I Am Coconut Cowash to wash out any residue I may have missed while washing my hair. After that I use Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Conditioner, placed a plastic cap (or maybe 2) on my head and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

Conditioning my hair

 

I rinsed the conditioner out and toweled dry my hair. And took a fun pic with my baby 🙂

I checked my length and I am very happy with how my hair has grown these past few years while natural.

Then, I blowed out my hair and braided it in cornrows.

And here is the final result.

So I decided that I would rather un-twist the twists and this is what I got 🙂

My Emmy Awards Best Dressed

My Emmy Awards Best Dressed

 

The 67th Emmy Awards…yes! It was great watching last night, for those of us were not glued to the football game. And then there’s those of us who were flipping back and forth hoping not to miss a touchdown on the red carpet! As we Tweet, Facebook our excitement of the awards given out last night especially to the Beautiful Viola Davis, fashionistas like myself couldn’t hide our excitement of all the beautiful dresses on the red carpet. We all have our own opinions of who are favorites were last night but here is a list of my 5 Favorite Best Dressed Women who wore it best:

 

 

1.
viola davis

I may be biased but Viola Davis looked stunning and angelic in this beautiful white gown by Carmen Marc Valvo. She WON huge last night as the First African American Woman to win an Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama. Viola Davis has made history and she represented with such charisma and humility. And her speech…I can not describe in words. She spoke from the heart!

 

2.

Taraji P Henson

Taraji P. Henson, star of Empire, took the LBD – Little Black Dress to another level, from the chain straps, the heart shape cut out bust line…this Alexander Wang dress gives her sex appeal without being too revealing. Always looking stunning, she pulled off this look with such ease. With her shoulder length straight bob she definitely has given us the motivation to go find that LBD.

3. Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter, star of Modern Family, looked flawless in her Romona Keveza dress. She rocked this form-fitting red dress with confidence on the red carpet with her beautiful curves. The asymmetrical top of her dress is unique and the mermaid tail at the bottom gives me life! She knows her body and her curves and she embraced in this dress.

4.

Teyonah Parris

Teyonah Parris, star of Mad Men, is giving us that innocent and girly look in her Francesca Miranda black and white polka dot dress. I just love how playful this dress is and it works with her personality. And her natural hair is gorgeous, giving us that 50’s look.

5. Gina-Rodriguez-

Gina Rodriguez, star of Jane the Virgin, is a sparkling beauty in her Lorena Sarbu dress. She accessorizes with simple diamond jewelry and her hair pulled back in a ponytail. I love how she put all of this together without overdoing and over-accessorizing. With a beautiful dress like this, it should not be overshadowed with a fancy hairdo or fancy jewelry.

These women turned heads on the red carpet last night and they will continue to display their style as you watch them television. They not only represent well on the set but off the set they are trend-setters!
