In the September issue of InStyle magazine, Beyonce dished on her love of Carol’s Daughter moisturizers. Hmm, I wonder if that’s because her hubby is an investor??? Oh well!!! I love Carol’s Daughter Hair Balm, in fact, I need to head over to Sephora and pick up a bottle! But, for the fun of it, I’d love to go over to the flagship store in Harlem when I’m in NYC next week!!
It’s amazing how as time changes, so do trends. The other day, I caught a few minutes of Waiting to Exhale. I wasn’t allowed to watch it when it came out, because I was too young. But watching it now, I see exactly why it was a blockbuster for Women of Color all over the world. I also couldn’t get over the matte eye shadow and bland lip colors. True, they were professional women, but damn, were the 90′s reaaaaly that boring when it comes to beauty??? I’m assuming so. Did everyone have to wear tomato red lipstick, really? Essence has featured Angela Bassett on their site with a photo gallery marking many of her most memorable roles, including Malcom X, Waiting to Exhale and Vampire in Brooklyn. Of course, we can’t forget How Stella Got Her Groove Back and What’s Love Got to Do With It. I even found some old makeup books from the 90′s (that shall remain nameless) that showcased makeup for Women of Color, it was terrible. Absolutely terrible. And no, I am definitely not referring to Sam Fine’s Fine Beauty! Whew, I feel better now. Just had to vent!! Have a lovely weekend!!
I am on a quest for super cute styles as a natural. Do I really have to have some sort of twist or puff in my hair all the time? NO. I was going to wig it up, but I really want to rock my hair. I found a few random images of naturals wearing bantu knots, so I thought I’d try it for myself. Check out this video from my Natural Hair Video Journal of my results. I’ll definitely have to try a new technique…practice makes perfect!!

Now that Fall is right around the corner, you can take a look around and see which fashion predictions actually came true. Keep in mind, all of these trends are showcased 6 months in advance, at Fall/Winter Fashion Week. I’m such a Spring/Summer girl, and I don’t follow too many Fall guidelines. I swear, I should be living in Miami, where the heat is constant and the threat of storms are always out there. Nonetheless, fashion call my name. I frequent NYMag to get the dish on all of the fashion up’s and down’s.
Some of the trends for this Fall:
Take a look at some of these looks…would you rock them this Fall?
