Time for a Trim!

Since I’ve decided to take out these twists and get a good old deep condition, I’m going to trim my hair. I am not of fan of trimming, but I know that my ends aren’t in the best shape, so I’m just going to get rid of them. No pain, no gain right??? I have a pretty basic trimming technique, as many of you may have. I clip the ends of my twists. I might not even be cutting off enough to keep the split ends from spreading, but hey, it’s worked this far! I typically trim 3 to 4 times a year, just because I don’t want to get carried away.

Do I Really Want to Lock???


Okay, I can’t lie, I’m having second thoughts. Within the past 2 months, I’ve spent over $100 stocking up on my favorite hair products, moisturizers, oils, conditioners and things of the like. And then, I started looking over my pictures, various fotki‘s that I have saved, loctician’s prices. I’m having second thoughts!!! So, I’m thinking that I may just wait it out a bit, use up my products, do tons more research, and then set the date. My hair has been growing pretty well, and I’d kind of like to see what more I can do with it. Oh well, I haven’t used conditioner in my hair since the week before I decided to lock. I cannot WAIT to deep condition!!!

I swear, I hate being so indecisive.

MAC Azalea Blush


I don’t mean to go on and on and on and on and on about MAC Azalea blush, but it owns the right. I am starting to turn into a blush freak. As the years have rolled on, I have realized that I am steadily negating eye shadow from my “it” list, and bringing in blush. I love a fresh, clean look on the face. To me, there is nothing more refreshing! In this picture, I was about to hop into the shower, and decided to play! I threw on a bit of Studio Fix, Feline kohl power on the water line, then put on my beloved Azalea!!! Mmm, mmm, mmm, I can’t get enough.

The thing about this blush is that it is a complete shocker. When you check it out in the container, especially when viewing it in the light, you can see a heavy sheen to it. The blush is bright, and I mean bright pink. It could be intimidating to anyone, but once you see it on the skin, you’re hooked!!! With a color like this, and any blush, shadow or random piece of makeup, you have to start with less product and build! In other words, don’t schlap on a bunch of shadow and expect for it to look natural. Use a little bit, and add more to get the desired effect.
