Wash Day | Lazy, Curly & Cute!

Ebony-C-Princess-Kinky-Curly-Weave-Longing-4-Length (400x400)

I still have the braids from my flexirod updo but they are fuzzy and not really presentable for the world.  I was going to redo them, but truth be told, I'm lazy about my hair right now.  I've always said lazy can be good provided you are doing the bare minimum of moisturizing, washing and conditioning your hair, which I am, otherwise leaving it alone is actually a great thing. My hair is currently 28 weeks (7 months) post relaxer and … [Read more...]

Jane Carter Solution Hydrate Moisture Mist Quench Seal & Shine

“Night Out” Hair & Makeup – Get Ready With Me

MAC Girl About Town Fishtail Braid - Longing 4 Length Ebony-C-Princess1

It seems many of you are enjoying my "Get Ready With Me" video tutorials?  Thank you for your appreciation!  This week's look is PERFECT for a night out on the town...hence the reason I used MAC Girl About Town lipstick.  To be real, I'm a little scared of rocking a full out smokey eye look...sometimes they look like the person was punched in the eye! Instead I prefer a softer look that is well blended as the photos show. As for the hair, I … [Read more...]
