This week I am going to be featuring a series of YouTube videos that helped my transition to natural hair. My natural hair journey wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I really think that was because of the many YouTube videos that I watched every night. I have been natural for two years now, and I finally big chopped about one year and change into my journey. I know for some that may seem like an eternity when you are used to having relaxed hair. I hope this video series helps on your own natural hair journey.
I have stylish relationship goals. I promise you I’m not vain, however I want the ability to have my future beau and I look effortlessly cool. I don’t want to look like we try to hard, because when it comes to getting dressed everyday…I really don’t try that hard. When I look at this picture of style icons Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, I just see cool. My future beau and I may never be that cool. That is a-ok, but…we can try.

A lot of you all love to budget and save. Why not save early by shopping sales early? I wanted to bring you some great spring shoes that are already on sale. I love to save, and you do too. The shoes below range from flats to platforms and everything in between. Prepare to see some white and brown shoes. Also look for some colorful flats to help brighten up everyday outfits.
FTC: I paid for this Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.
I love the items I received in my Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box. This box is one of the cheapest beauty boxes around because you only get charged $5 for shipping and handling four times a year. So four boxes are $20! Most beauty boxes will cost you $20 or more for one box. I could use or enjoy most of the items. I do have a problem with some of the samples. I can’t really use them because they are for lighter skin tones. Oh well. check out my unboxing video, and let me know what you think in the comments.
I wish I was near Atlanta. Plus size store Ashley Stewart is having a #LOVEYOURCURVES tour featuring Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista and more special guests. They are also giving away two scholarships. Great right? Yea it is. You better get yourself together, call your friends and head out to Ashley Stewart’s #LOVEYOURCURVES tour.
Friend to the blog and friend in real life, designer Washington Roberts created a spring 2015 collection that is architecturally sound. Roberts’ designs always look good, and in the three years since he started his namesake line you can see his attention to detail and sophistication. When his first came to America from Nigeria, he wanted to be an engineer.

I can’t believe it. The Fat and Skinny on Fashion Blog is six!! The little blog I started as a hobby and then became my graduate thesis project is growing up. I am so proud of my baby. Because of my blog, I have gone to various fashion weeks-including New York Fashion Week, met a lot of cool people, and made some awesome friends. I have experienced so many wonderful things because of my blog that I would have never dreamed of doing.
A new year, new me #STARTSHERE with Walgreens and P&G. I have been thinking about my new year’s resolutions recently and I want to do things differently this year. I am still going to make my vision board, but I also want to make a few new resolutions. As always I want to keep up with my healthy living journey, but I also want to work on personal organization and personal appearance.
FTC: I was given the Argan Oil Hair Mask products by Instanaturals and Brandbackers.
The Instanaturals Argan Oil Hair Mask is perfect for natural hair. My hair hates cold weather or constantly changing temperatures. This crazy weather has been wrecking it. The ingredients are really good. They have Argan Oil, Amino Acid Complex, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin B5 inside, but they also have a lot more natural oils listed as well. The hair mask smells so good. When I opened the container, I feel like I sniffed if for way too long. It kind of smells like chocolate, so don’t leave it open near any pets.
FTC: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
I recently received my #FrostyVoxBox from Influenster.com and I love it. Most of the products I actually love and will use again. I got two eye products from Rimmel, a tea sample from Celestial Saesonings, some Fruit Vines, a lipstick from NYC New York Color, a paddle brush from EcoTools, some thyme from McCormick Gourmet, and the Perfect and Protect Serum from Boot No 7. Check out the video to see what I thought about everything and check out all of my social media channels throughout to week to see more of what I thought.
PS. While I am on the topic of this box, I recently have started drinking tea like everyday. I can honestly say that you all need to run out and buy this tea because it is bomb dot com dot edu dot whatever!
