Recently I was approached by Divatress to check out some of their lace front wigs which was great for me because this is the time of the year that I start looking for my fall and winter wigs. I usually wear lace front wigs during these two seasons because they are protective styles. Protective styles are hairstyles that protect my natural hair from damage.
I’ve been trying to write this blog post for what seems like forever. Last week when I was trying to write my Dollar Tree haul post, my internet kept going out. My internet has been cutting off and on. I am about to lose it to ATT on the phone if it doesn’t stop acting up. UGH!!!
FTC: I was given this bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil for review. This is an honest review.
I love using oils on my skin and hair. When Actually Organic Argan Oiloffered me a free bottle to try, I was very excited. Not all argan oil is created equal. This particular brand is very good because it actually made from 100% pure and cold pressed argan oil from Africa. This isn’t the synthetic-kinda mixed with other questionable things type of oil. The owner of the company went to find the purest, best smelling oil. I have been using this oil for a month now. I use it on my cuticles, my hair, the corners of my eyes, my lips, and my elbows. I really have been getting my use out of this oil. I really talk about how I use the oil in the video below. The 4 ounce bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil is on sale at Amazon for $23.99. I was actually given the 1 ounce bottle. It costs $11.99 and lasts a long time. After all I have been using it for, I still have a great deal of oil left. You really don’t need that much oil for each use. Check out hte video below for more.
Holiday parties are in full force now and everyone is looking for a great holiday beauty look to wear. I found this video on YouTube at Jordan Liberty’s channel and it is the hottest holiday beauty look for parties and more. I also think red and gold are very festive. Gloss also makes a flossy glossy holiday look. This look has the best of both worlds-red and glossy. If you just like the the red look, you can stop there. If you want to keep going with the glam, finish the video to find out how to get the glossy eye.
The weather is finally starting to get cooler, and this is the time where my scalp starts to get itchy. I am so glad Canviiy showed up in my inbox with a free sample. Thank you Canviiy for the free sample. Y’all this product is so good. Canviiy is a combination of different oils and ingredients that, when used on the scalp with the easy to use applicator, stops the itch. It truly works. I tried the samples they gave me, and I was so amazed by it. I usually use tea tree oil to stop the itch, but Canviiy swears by their product and claim that it gives you a long-lasting scalp soothing sensation. Continue Reading
Halloween is right around the corner, and I am sure some of y’all still haven’t figured out what you all want to be. I’m not so sure if I know what I want to be either. I don’t even know if I am doing anything special that night. Hmmm… Maybe I will go as a nasty woman? Anyway. Here are five Halloween makeup tutorials that will surely inspire you to trick or treat or just wait for the 50% off candy sales the very next day like I do. Continue Reading
It is that time of the year again where I start to look for some wigs to use as protective styles for my natural hair. Half wigs are great because they are easy, usually cheap, low maintenance styles that can protect my natural hair from the cold, dry air. I always start the wig search process by going on YouTube and checking out the latest tutorials and wig hauls. I’ve seen quite a few wig hauls on these new Outre half wigs, and I think these might be the best half wigs for natural hair. Continue Reading
Thanks to BrandBacker and Valentia, I was recently given the chance to try the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. I have used and reviewed another Valentia product before and loved it. When I was asked to try this product, I was very excited because I know they have some really good products. The Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum is another keeper.
I decided to collaborate with fellow beauty blogger/vlogger Luv Mika to share four affordable conditioners for detangling natural hair. I love Luv Mika’s videos and Instagram. She has a wealth of knowledge that I couldn’t wait to let my readers know about. I hope you all will subscribe to her channel and blog. Also please follow her on her Instagram page because she has awesome beauty and product reviews and fashion posts on there. I love her outfit posts. because she is really good at thrifting. I don’t know how she does it, but she needs to teach me her ways.
I just recently received my Fall 2016 Sephora inside JCPenney catalog, and now I can’t wait to show you my fave pre-fall beauty picks from Sephora and some of my fave beauty stores. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and fall beauty is my favorite type of beauty. I love the dark lips and smoky eyes. I love all those things that make fall beauty great. Check out my pre-fall beauty
Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website. I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.
I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.
This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.
I recently received the And I Don’t Care: Whipped Hair & Body Moisturizing Butter from Heritage 1933, and it is another winner. This $30 whipped product works great on both the hair and the body and is made from natural ingredients. Heritage 1933 is a company that is trying to empower women. For ever purchase, the company will give free hair care products to women and children in need. They also have other bath, beauty, and hair products on their website. Make sure you check out their body scrubs and kinky curly weave.
As you may remember from a few months ago, I am now a paid subscriber for the Beautycon Box. I love these boxes and recently did a video and blog post about my first Beautycon Box– The Bethany Mota themed box. They give you over $100 worth of products and gift cards to awesome stores. This box was curated by YouTube beauty guru and internet phenom Grav3yardGirl.
I found out about the #BeautyConBFF beauty box on Snapchat-follow me at thefatandskinny- and decided to get one to unbox for you! Honestly…let’s be all the way real here. I saw what was in the box and said, “OK BeautyCon! Take my money!!!!” So they did. They took it all, but I can’t even be mad at them. Inside my box are items from Nike, Colourpop, Garnier, Maybelline, and more!
Vivica Fox Cornrow Caps might just be a dream come true. I’ve never seen anything like this before, and it’s really exciting. A part of me is like wow this is really really really freaking weird, but then a whole nother part of me is like this is kind of convenient, and I might need to go out and procure me one of these contraptions.

Hello everybody. This video of me unboxing my winter 2016 Walmart Beauty Box is kinda late because of the holidays and such. I purchased this beauty box myself. It is $5 a box, soooo $20 a year. The $5 covers the shipping and handling. Not bad. I usually suggest this box over other beauty boxes, especially if this is your first time ordering one.
FTC: Influenster sent me this can of Dove Dry Spray. This is an honest review.
Happy holidays everyone! I just received my can of Dove Dry Spray from Influenster for the Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox challenge, and I couldn’t be happier. This isn’t my first time trying Dove Dry Spray. I received a sample earlier this year, and I loved it.
Ok guys and dolls! Please get me out of this hair dilemma. I need your help in picking out a yaki lace front wig. I have been looking at different yaki lace front wigs for months. Since I am natural, and very fond of protective styles, I want a wig that will mimic straightened hair so I don’t actually have to straighten my hair. I am so afraid of damage. After being natural since 2012, I want to keep my hair growing and strong. Protective styles, like twists and wigs, help my hair to grow because I am not playing in it or adding heat to it all the time. The thing I like about yaki lace front wigs is that they look more natural on my head. Sometimes I want a wig that looks like it could be my hair.
