Natural Hair Tutorial: Curly Fro’ using Beautiful Textures and Flexi-Rods

Hey Loves!

 

I recently wanted to try my hand at FlexiRods. I had them for a while but never really tried to style my hair using them. Well, I recently purchased a few products from Beautiful Textures and thought that it would be the perfect time to try a FlexiRod style. Check out my video below and let me know what you!

Wearing a Twist-Out is always fun, but there are days when you want to jazz it up with some accessories. I love using an abundance of hair accessories such as scarves, headbands, barrettes and flowers to give my twist-out a different look.

Finding the Perfect Curvy Jeans & OOTD

Plus Size, Fashion, Plus Size Fashion, Outfit of the day, OOTD, Leopard Sweater, Pencil Skirt, Blogger, Plus Size Blogger, Curvy, Clothing, Lucky, Naturally Curly KinkyWe love jeans! They’re comfortable, versatile and virtually go with just about anything, but finding the perfect pair can be a very daunting task no matter your size. There are some many variables to think about such as style, color, pocket placement, low-rise vs. high-rise and the list goes on and on. For curvy women, it’s truly about finding a good fit without having the gap at the waist because they fit in the hips but not the waist. And don’t get me started on the saggy butt look. Placement of the pockets is more important that you think. If you want to create a flattering butt, go for pockets that are larger and avoid any decorative details and flaps, these only bring attention to your backside.

My Natural Hair Journey: Flat Twist-Out

For a very long time, I loved watching YouTube videos on flat twist-out styles, but I just could not get my fingers to get the motion right…So, flat twists were not in my routine. One day I made a decision to keep trying until I had it and can you believe on my first try, I finally got it…Well sort of, the next few flat twists were not pretty…lol

My Natural Hair Journey: Deep Conditioning My 4C Hair

During my natural hair journey I’ve learned so much about caring for my 4c hair. Deep conditioning has become one of the most important parts of this journey. Deep conditioning my hair is very important as I can see the difference in my hair when I don’t deep condition on a regular basis.

My hair is more manageable, soft, moisturized and has lots of sheen. Exactly what I want my hair to have. So, what so important about deep conditioning natural hair? Deep conditioning fortifies the hair with moisture and/or protein. Conditioners play the most critical role in maintaining hair’s protein/moisture balance. Formulated to help us achieve one of the two healthy hair characteristics, strength or softness. Conditioners are positively charged and contain humectants, moisturizers, oils and small amount of proteins to improve the overall quality of hair.

My Plus Size Fashion Style: High Waisted…

Plus Size, Plus Size Fashion, Fashion, Style, OOTD, Outfit of the day, HOTD, Hair of the day, Natural Hair, Kinky Hair, Curly Hair, 4c, Plus, Blogger, Lucky When something makes you laugh, enjoy every moment of that laughter. Life sometimes brings us so much stress and we allow that to weigh us down. Laughter is one of the best ways to lift your spirits and reduce stress.

Laughter also helps to increase the response of tumor and disease killing cells, increases vascular blood flow and brings oxygen to the blood. The physical and mental health benefits go on and on, so enjoy that hardy laugh. Try to find more moments to laugh such as Karaoke, miniature golf or bowling. Or how about getting the girls together for a game night. A little wine and a fun game will definitely bring some good laughs.

The weekend is over and we are full swing into the work week after most of us having MLK off of work. Unfortunately, I was not a part of the lucky folks that had the day off. I had to go into work. Not only did I have to go in but I had to be there at 7:30am and worked until 5pm. Although I had to work, I did have several moments of thinking about Martin Luther King Jr. and all that he did to fight for equality. We are so blessed to be in this moment of freedom and joy. So, I hoped that you had a wonderful MLK Day and enjoyed it to the fullest!

Ladies, we all have the Little Black Dress that we pull out for professional and social events, but do you ever think about wearing them on a work day or weekend? Well, you should!

LBD’s can be dressed up or down with just a few simple touches. We all know that a LBD goes perfect with a classy heel, cute clutch and of course something to make a statement such as a pop of color statement necklace, but what if I want to wear my LBD to work? If you would like to remix your LBD and wear it to work, try styling it the way I did for a work day.

I fell in love with this Calvin Klein faux leather skirt the moment I saw it at the Macy’s shopping event hosted by Reah Norman. She was wearing this skirt and looked amazing, so I politely asked where she found it and rushed over to find my size…lol I didn’t really run, let’s just say I quickly glided across the room.
