Beauty | My Tour of Jeffre Scott - Charlotte, NC

Hello Beauties!

A few weekends ago I had the absolute pleasure of touring Jeffre Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Jeffre Scott is a beautiful cosmetic store located on Providence Road that offers unique cosmetic, candles and beauty services.  Whether you are looking for a new lipstick, candle for your home or brow waxing, you can find it all in this store.  Let's jump into the tour...



Upon arriving at the store, I was immediately greeted by one of Jeffre Scott's makeup artists, Erica.  She began to show me around the store.  I was amazed by all of the unique beauty brands they had like Susan Posnick and eco-friendly cosmetics by Alison Raffaele.  They also sell the all natural skincare line, GOLDFADEN MD,  I recently shared on the blog.




It was great to see some familiar brands like Becca, Clarisonic and one of my personal favorites, Beauty Blender.  Charlton, another Jeffre Scott makeup artist, began to show me some of the hair and body products housed in the store.  He also shared with me that they offer facials.  You all know I love a great facial!





I definitely fell in love with Juara.  It smells so good!  I loved the fact that they also sell a candle made by a local Charlotte resident who even makes a signature Jeffre Scott scent.



Before leaving, Erica gave a subtle smoky eye.  I have never worn a smoky eye with a red lip, but the sublty made it look fabulous!


A little camera phone action!

Thank you Jeffre Scott for allowing me to tour your store!

God bless & stay fabellis,

Natural Hair | Everyone's Natural Hair Goal Is NOT Long Hair

Hello Beauties!

I felt compelled to write today's post after a few conversations I have had recently regarding my hair.  One of the joys of having natural hair is the somewhat instant bond you have when you meet other naturalistas.  It's almost a sisterhood.  I can be out doing grocery shopping, see another naturalista, ask her about her natural hair journey and end up engaged in this beautiful conversation.  The common question I have been asked a lot lately is how long I have been natural.  This is where it gets interesting...

Natural Hair | Koils by Nature Soothing Herbal Curl Defining Unscented Gel Review

Hello Beauties!

Today's review is Part One of a three part series.  It has been a few weeks since I removed my crochet braids and I am back to styling this thick head of hair again on a weekly basis.  With my tapered cut, I prefer to style my hair with gel to create defined coil outs and twist outs.  Pam of Koils by Nature sent over a few products for me to try from her collection, including one of her gels.  Today I will be reviewing the Soothing Herbal Curl Defining Unscented Gel.

Fashion | Pardon My Fro

Hello Beauties!

I remember three years ago when I went natural, I was apprehensive about two things.  I was worried about how I would look with short hair and I had no idea how to style my own hair.  Today I can say that going natural was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I have learned to love the natural curls that God uniquely designed for me.  Plus, shirts with sayings like, "Pardon My Fro," make natural hair even more dope!
