Natural Hair | The #1 Reason I Got Rid of My Blonde Hair


If you have seen my latest post, I'm sure you may have noticed a change.  I changed my hair color!  I don't regard myself as a spur of the moment type of person, but changing my hair color was indeed a random moment.  I started contemplating going from blonde to darker tresses a few months ago, but I wasn't completely sold on it because quite frankly I love blonde hair.  As I was sitting in Tiffany Denae's chair a few weeks ago, I decided to make a quick change and it was for one reason and one reason only.

Personal Style | Fab Werkwear Series: African Prints in the Office


I believe in creating a wardrobe that is multi-functional.  I love having a piece that can be worn not only to the office, but to church, date night, etc.  African prints are like a delicacy in a wardrobe.  They are gorgeous, bold prints that are so unique and fun.  I have been wearing African prints to the office for quite some time now.  You may be wondering if these prints are appropriate for the office, but trust me, it's all about how you wear them and the cut of the garment.  I have worn a vintage African print jacket to the office and received compliments all day long as well as a knee length skirt.  The cut and styling are keys.

Personal Style | Thrifty Plus Size Valentine's Day Lookbook


With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be great to share some love day style with you.  I created a Valentine's Day lookbook with a slight twist.  I created a thrifty lookbook because I believe in not only thrifting, but finding incredible deals even in regular retail stores.  Each look I created with key pieces I found for prices ranging from three to ten dollars.  I hope these looks will give you some inspiration whether you're hanging out with your girls or you boo.

Beauty | Black Opal True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review


I think I am one of the few beauty bloggers of color who has not used many Black Opal products.  I have been hearing so many positive reviews of Black Opal for years, but after choosing the wrong shades for myself a few years ago, I hadn't tried Black Opal since.  I was recently volunteering in a Walmart in Charlotte when I came across a pretty impressive selection of Black Opal products.  I had seen most of their products before, but the True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation was new to me.  I was easily able to spot a shade that looked similar to my skin tone and you all know I love trying new beauty products so I figured I would give it a try.  After using it the last week, I wanted to share with you all my full review and thoughts.

Personal Style | Chokers and Frayed Hems


Change is good.  Over the last six months, I've changed my hair color twice and brought more fun, adventurous pieces into my wardrobe.  One of my favorite things about no longer working in a traditional office environment is the ability to dress how I want, when I want.  Don't get me wrong, though.  I loved throwing a little spice into my office attire, but there's something nice about being able to wake up and throw on jeans and a t-shirt.  I've been trying to step out of my norm lately so when I recently saw this choker t-shirt, I thought it would be perfect for my wardrobe.
