Obsession: Hair Crush

Tis’ the season for a new do! Hair-do that¬†is. We all develop crushes on something or someone, which started back in our childhood years. As I dove deeper into my own personal journey to natural ¬†unprocessed hair I realized I was crushing on more women than normal. Now it’s not the women themselves but what they may personify to me.

With the hair styles in the movies, at awards shows, of musicians and street-style. Seeing a style, loving the style and going out to get the style can be a bit neurotic, especially if it doesn’t come out just as you imagined.

At the moment Corinne Bailey Rae is my crush, I love her vocals, music, personality, and now more that ever her hair. I love how soft and carefree her tresses look. It’s the effortless styling of it all.

From where I started to where I am today I have a little ways to go as far as length and the styling as we speak I am mastering the technique.

The Gift of Thrift

A new year brings, new seasons, and with new seasons come the latest and great and many, many come backs of classic looks.

For as long as I can remember I have been a bargain shopper. I will go near and far for the best deals. As the spring is approaching, I look at my seemingly full closet and I am more that ready to revamp and add to my collection.

I’ve scoured my local Goodwill and thrift stores for years and have found the best deals as well as some name brand items. Consignment shop are great places as well, they may be it bit pricey, but remember that the condition of the items are so much better. Even at my regular shop spots I go from clearance rack to clearance rack I’m looking for things that problem won’t make a come back as well as things that can be  worn for years to come. So next time you get the itch to shop or do some browse shopping stop by your local thrift store, Goodwill, consignment shop or Ebay!

Red Carpet: THE 2011 OCARS Highlights

 

“I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me, It’s where I wanna be …. Lady in Red…..”
