I Love This Style–Harlem Fashion Row by Dark and Lovely

Nzingha Knight Model - Dark and Lovely

I don’t know how many emails I’ve recieved from Fashion Week with “sleek hair” or “the high pony”. We wear those styles every day. While they look great on the runway, they aren’t really fun to share. However, when I saw this style, I thought–Yes! Finally! Fun! Great! Pow!

Dark and Lovely provided hair for Harlem’s Fashion Row this week. I became a fan of Dark and Lovely a few years ago when I found their at home hair color (here’s a video of how I did it. I was terrified!). I particularly love the texture and substance behind this style. It’s something I’d wear for a night out, and I could even pull it off with my locs.

The End of My Jiggly Juggs: An Ode to Vanity Fair

My Old Bras in the Trash

Throwing out my old bras, replacing them with new ones!

As a blogger, I am often sent products for review, and I also purchase and test my own. There have only been a couple of occasions when a free product made me loyal to the brand.This is one of them.

I have a dear friend, Meagan, who absolutely cringes when she sees my lack of support (trust me, she tells me all the time). I’m aware that I needed improvement. I’ve been on the hunt for better bras for a couple of years now. I’d buy the so-called supportive bras that had larger cups, but no strap support. Some of those bras would be so thin that the slightest breeze caused “hardnippleitis.”

By the way, I’m absolutely obsessed with Christina Hendricks in Mad Men. She was a curvy girl with a full rack, but managed to keep them up and perky. I knew she wasn’t doing the average things. I asked Kathryn Finney, and she said they might be using duct tape. I also asked The Lingerie Addict, and she explained that bra shapes were different back then. All in all, I just want my breasts to be sky high and to defy gravity.

Blog Sale: Nars and MAC Cosmetics

Blog Sale

I’m having a very small blog sale! These are all products that I purchased, but haven’t used in awhile. Everything will be sold on a first come, first served basis based on the google doc at the bottom of the post. I’ll have the status of each product beside it (to say if it has been sold or pending).

Prices: To make it fair (and easier for me), all Nars products are sold at 30% off of their current retail price, all MAC products are sold at 40% off of their current retail price.  This is the price that I paid for the products. I don’t really want to sell any of these products, but someone else might be able to use them more than I can. It was hard for me to part with them! If any products don’t get sold, I’ll be happy to keep them in my collection!
