I just ordered my second jar of Shine and Define Gentle Styling Serum from Oyin. As you may remember, I wrote a post about Oyin products earlier this Summer. And I’ve found yet another use for this bad boy!! I told you all that it helps bring out coils on wet hair. But, now that I have started to twist my hair, this is my BFF. I like to twist on clean, dry hair, becuase it makes the length of the twists longer, in my opinion. So, I like to section off the hair, and add a dime sized amount of this serum to slightly dampen it. I make sure to coat as much of the hair as possible. After I’ve twisted the hair, the ends curl right up! Every few days, I run a bit more about this through my twists to control flyaways. I freakin’ love this stuff!!! I wasn’t a big fan of twists, I’ve said it in a few videos. But in the You Tube video below, I’m rocking my second ever set of twists! I pinned them up to give them a different look.

Also in this video, the winner of the Billy B. Beauty Brush Set!!!


Off Topic…My Fear Realized..

I got this image from Post Secret’s Blog, which is absolutely outstanding. People write a personal thought, feeling, or secret on one side of a postcard, then send it in anonymously. It’s astonishing to see what some people say. There have been several books made, and the leftovers go onto the blog, and other places. This one disturbed me greatly, which is my biggest fear. Seriously, I am furious just looking at this image. It reads, “It’s only a matter of time”. And even after seeing this, I still think he would be an absolutely amazing President of The United States of America. If they hurt him….nationwide chaos. Just my thoughts.

Seriously, these things are amazing. I made my final decision to lust for a MACbook after I watched this crystal clear video from Billy B. tonight. It took a fraction of the time for me to upload and share it. My brother made me go to the Apple Store with him and play with them for hours before he purchased his. My Auntie, a professional photographer, raves about her MacBook all the time! It appears to be so animated, up to date, full of fun features that I don’t really have on my laptop. I’m not complaining, by any means, just lusting! All of you MACBook owners, shall I take the big switch? Any advice is highly recommended. Which type do you have and why do you love it? I see they came out with a new one today!
