What Does My Smarter Commerce Mean To Me?

Since I am one of the bloggers a part of IBM’s My Smarter Commerce campaign, I decided to share a video to tell you a little bit about what #mysmartcommerce means to me. If you see the hashtag #mysmartercommerce roaming around the internets on social media and the like, join the conversation!

My First Time At Fro Fashion Week Spring 13

Fro Fashion Week Spring 2013

Fro Fashion Week Spring 2013

Last weekend was my first time at Fro Fashion Week, and I am so glad I went. My friend and fellow blogger Ebony from Make Me Over Eb spoke at this event last year. She told me it was a really great event that I should try to go to and see what it is about. Since I’ve decided to go natural again, and the event was just three hours away I said, “why not?” Well… so far, so good.

All of the women here at Fro Fashion Week Spring 2013 have been so inspirational. We shared our hair journeys, and special hair tips. It was like we were sharing some kind of special hair bonding experience. We laughed and joked and had us a good ole time! I bought a VIP pass, so I received a box full of natural hair goodies that should help me transition from chemically relaxed hair to fluffy and full natural hair. I miss my old hair texture, my natural hair texture, and seeing all of these women with beautiful natural styles is making me impatient for hair growth, but excited for change.

Bronner Bros. Mid-Winter Hair Show Recap!

Bronner Bros. Hair Show

Bronner Bros. Hair Show

I am finally home from the Bronner Bros. Mid-Winter Hair Show 2013. I am so tired and sore from all the walking and standing and doing, but I had a blast! I can’t wait to go back again. I bought a ton of items, and handed out several business cards. I really think I found some new brands to cover for the blog. I never made it to any of the classes, but that is okay. This was my first time at the largest exhibition in the world. I learned what to  expect for next time so I can plan accordingly. I want to leave you with some of pictures that I took at the event. Also, check out the blog in the coming weeks when I review some products from the show!

Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer by Lori Greiner

Have y’all seen the Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer by Lori Greiner at QVC.com? I have looked at this thing for months, and now I think I am finally going to buy it. I could use a better cosmetic organizational system in my bathroom. This spinning organizer can fit up to 100 pieces of your and my cosmetic junk. Plus it has a removable top as well! The Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer by Lori Greiner is only $29.82, so I won’t be breaking the bank when I buy it. Then again, I might end up buying new cosmetics to fill up all the space I just freed up. [SOURCE]

Battle of the Model Model Invisible Part Wig and the Freetress Equal Invisible Part Wig Part One

3/4 wig, u part wig

Check out this battle between the Model Model Invisible Part Wig “Yura” and the Freetress Equal Invisible Part Wig “Spotlight.” I am really loving these wigs. For the uninitiated, these are basically 3/4 or u-part wigs. If you are still confused, it is basically a wig with the top cut out of it in a “U” formation so you can pull your own hair out on the top which allows the wig to look more natural. Get into these things. They will save your life on a bad hair day all for around the price of $25. Not bad ehh?! Check out the video and look for part two.

Beauty Bit-COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation

COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation

I decided to to try out the COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation because everyone was talking about how great it is. Umm yeah! It is pretty freaking awesome. This is an all day full coverage foundation with a primer and concealer built into it. It looked really good after it dried. Later in the day, it still help on but looked a little powdery. It wasn’t that bad, unless you prefer a dewy finish to a matte finish. This foundation is pretty good. There are only two full coverage foundations in drugstore beauty aisles, and I like this one more than the Revlon Colorstay. I recommend the COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation.

FCC: I bought this foundation with my own money.

Bronner Bros. Mid-Winter Hair Show Day One

Bronner Bros. Hair Show

AHHHHHHHHH!! Mom and I are having a blast at Bronner Bros. braving the wind and the cold, and all of the incredible vendors inside. I have already bought things that I plan on reviewing later and sampled other products. My hands have more creams and oils on them I’ve ever had on them before. They should be baby soft right now. I think I am going to put some pictures up of all the crazy hairstyles I’ve seen so far on my Facebook page, so stay tuned for that. They are wild, and I know you want to see them. Tomorrow we are going to go to some makeup classes and peruse the vendors again. Mom is acting as my assistant. She is helping me tape things, and is really having a blast! I would also like to say thank you to the media coordinators for the event. They were really helpful.
