Over the weekend, I did something I never thought I would ever do. I have always dreamed of shooting a fashion film, but I never had the opportunity to do so. One of my friends asked me to shoot her styling videos for her. She is going by Lexis-Style, so be sure to check her out. I love the outfits she wears to school everyday. She really lets her personality shine through her outfits. Follow her here. I have to thank her for this experience because it was fun and challenging. Moving from location to location. Shooting guerrilla style in the streets. I loved it! I can’t wait to do it again. Photo from here. View the short and long versions below. Continue Reading
I received the Perlier Volcanic Thermal Spa Thermo Renewing Scrub from iFabbo weeks ago, but wasn’t able to review it until this weekend, and I can honestly say that I love it. The scrub is made with volcanic stones that don’t feel like they are striping my skin. Actually the thick liquid texture of the scrub makes my skin feel very soft and smooth after I exfoliate. I used it on my feet, and I had my dad use it on his feet. We both liked how smooth our skin was afterwards, so I know this is definitely a product I will be using to combat fall/winter dryness. If you remember I tried their Lemon Sorbet product and loved that as well. Perlier makes some great beauty products, and they are all available on HSN. Make sure you check them out and don’t forget that you can get $5 off with coupon code iFabbo5.
I went to the mall and did the Sephora Color IQ thing and ended up buying the uber expensive Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation. It really does make my skin look smooth, but it also left it looking ashy since it has a really matte finish. I also think the Color IQ machine scanner thingy matched me wrong. Watch my video to hear about the rest of my experience with the Sephora Color IQ.
I wanted to do this video to show you how to prep your skin before and after you do some kind of hair removal process since the weather is getting warmer. To prep your skin before and after you have to follow a this regimen. It is super easy to follow, and has been working for me. If I don’t follow these steps, my skin hates me later. Here’s to happy, non-itchy/irritated skin! Happy Waxing!
I love this copper and red colored makeup tutorial from NikkiTutorials on YouTube. This is the perfect look for a holiday party. I can’t think of a more beautiful look to wear with a little black dress. I feel like this look is so shiny on its own that maybe the outfit could be toned down or understated, non? Oui! Anywho. How do you feel about this tutorial? I want to try it right now!

Hey guys! I got rid of that awful horrible, no good, trash that was the Bobbi Boss IndiRemi in the Ocean Wave. Thankfully the good people at The Fabulace Hair gave me two packs of their 16 inch Brazilian Loose Wave in 1B. So far I am in love with it. My parents and my hairstylist have already noticed a difference in the hair. Check out my video above for a more in depth review.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dark and Lovely 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum’s is a horrible hair product. It is supposed to help your relaxer last longer after you wash your hair. Fail!!! My hair had more ripples in it than the Blue Ridge Mountains. It did not help anti-revert my hair or whatever you call it. It left my hair very dry and brittle. The product sucks. I give it two thumbs down. If I had more thumbs…
This video is my ode to the introvert. As an introvert, I love being me. I do not want to be an extrovert, so stop trying to force your extroverted ways on me. There is nothing wrong with being an extrovert, but come on…being an extrovert is not the only way to be in the world. So this video is going to do exactly what the graphic says it is going to do…show you how to care and respect the introvert! Photo from Tumblr.

A lot of women wear weaves and extensions, and a lot of them know how to deep condition the hair once a week. But how many of you weave wearing sistas know how to wash the hair braided under your extensions. There are a lot of confusing/convoluted ways to do this, but I finally found a YouTube video that shows an extremely plain and simply way to cleanse the hair under your weave. All she does is scrub the dry shampoo on her braids with a towel and blow dries for extra penetration. It is so easy peasy.

On Sunday, I along with Make Me Over Eb and XO Gallivanting Boy went to the Who Got Flava Hair Show at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, and we had a BLAST!!! It was a far cry from the hair show last week. This show was more along the lines of a Bronner Brothers type hair show event. I mean you know the salons had to bring it if they were going to win $10,000!
