Angellic Beauty Products – Shampoo, Conditioner, Oil Review

I was sent some goodies from Angellic Beauty for review, and I am now here to share my thoughts on how it worked out on my Natural Hair!

(As always, my reviews are 100 % honest, and 100% my own experiences!)

Angellic Beauty has three products designed to be used together on Natural hair; a Revitalizing Shampoo, a Rejuvenating Conditioner, and a Restoration Oil.

All of her products are oil based, an awesome characteristic, which I find really helps lock in moisture… but before I get a head of myself, let’s look at each of these products one by one :

Revitalizing Shampoo:

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Peppermint Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Coconut Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Shea Butter, and an all natural secret recipe.

Thoughts: Honestly, I was a bit anxious about using a “Shampoo” made up entirely of oils. I figured I would end up with an unwashed head, and maybe more buildup than I had started out with, but this was not the case. I was so incredibly happy with the revitalizing shampoo, that it didn’t even feel like a shampoo! My type 4 hair was soft, and shiny, and tingling-clean. It didn’t feel stripped either.  I honestly was able to detangle with it, and probably would have been okay ending my wash-day there, twisting my hair, and going to bed. But of course… I knew I had to use the Angellic trio all together, as designed, to give a proper review.

Photo Shoot for Tilda’s Kimonos (Behind the Scenes)

I was feeling sort of nostalgic for the sun, the beach, and good company, when I realized I had a whole collection of photos from the famed TildaKimono Bikini photoshoot that the world hadn’t seen yet.

So first, let me give you a bit of back story. Many months ago, Tilda asked if I could model some of her Kimonos. First of all, I was extremely excited (and honoured) to be asked, and second, it would give me the opportunity to go to the beach, and rock a bikini. (In case you weren’t aware, I have a mild Bikini buying problem, but that’s another story for another day…)

Through another talented friend of ours, Xandria (who you can read about HERE and HERE), we met Daniela, who is an absolutely amazing photographer who would be taking the fashion shots for Tilda.  (You can check out her work at

In short, everything came together beautifully; the weather, our schedules, the people that got to be involved! And it all worked out to create some pretty rad pictures. While Daniela worked her magic, Xandria had my camera in hand, and took some bomb behind the scenes shots!

I do my Own Braids and Sometimes it Looks Pretty OK, I Guess.

Guest Post by Xandria Thomison

Hi! You might remember me from such guest posts as ‘10 months post Big Chop’ and hilarious photos with Kaya. Well guest what? IM BACK FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME with another guest post!

This time I want to share with you all my experience with doing my own box braids! Recently me and Kaya spent the weekend going to buy hair, and then braiding together all night and morning long in the most epic of sleepovers.

I first got the idea to do my own hair way back in 10th grade in Calgary AB. High School. What a fun time for all involved. It was summer, and I had just started transitioning to natural. I was obsessed with Jada Pinkett Smith and her bad-assery and hardcore cornrows she was currently rocking, because I was a hardcore angsty teen that needed to prove how hardcore and not here for your nonsense I was. I also wanted to hide the weird texture change in my hair. So I went downtown to the salon and paid 250$ for three lines of box braids in the back, and hardcore cornrows in the front. It was the modern 90’s black girl mullet, ooooh yeeaa. But Cinderella 1997 was my favorite movie and I wanted to be Brandy.

I looked fantastic, but unfortunately I didn’t have a phone and selfies weren’t a thing yet so I don’t have any pics, so just imagine it. I watched intently as they braided, wondering how hard it’d be to do myself.  I asked how much for Brandy-esque box braids and was quoted 800$. YA RIGHT. So I decided watching once was enough for me to do the whole thing by myself next time.

The first time I tried it was a hot buttery mess. But I was not discouraged, oh no, not I angsty prove you wrong teen. So I practiced and practiced and finally by grade 12 I got to a level of ‘well that looks good enough for me!’ And ever since I have been relying on the length and cool colors to outweigh the not necessarily straight lines or evenness. It pretty much works, so you’re welcome. My trick is to just take them out before going back to the salon to buy more hair to avoid any real critique from a professional.

Whenever I go to buy my hair, I will always have a color or style in mind inspired by a celebrity, and Instagram photo, or Pinterest. And let me tell you I am very good at not sticking to my original plan at all. I get desecrated by all the colors they have and normally change my mind after 10 mins of staring at the wall and being asked if I’m ok.

5 Days of Gap Work Outfits | OOTD Inspiration for your 9 to 5

As many of you know, I suck at dressing myself, so a good friend of mine (Tilda Ruvinga) often helps me out in that department. (Check out the last style she hooked me up with Here). So when I found myself in a new job, with little to no clothing suitable for the position, Tilda helped me out… and my mom gave her 2 cents too. The day I accepted my offer, I met Tilda at The Gap, and that is how she created “5 Days of Gap Work Outfits”. She completely set me up for my first 9 to 5 work week!

Here are the results, an Outfit of the Day, for Every Day:

Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette

I went into Sephora looking to replenish my lipstick collection, but instead, I came out with the new Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow Palette, (and a new lipstick and lipliner, but that is besides the point). This new palette is jewel-toned and sparkly, and honestly the last thing I thought I would have  purchased for myself. I am usually drawn to warmer, natural colours, and don’t usually get too flashy on my eyes.

But this time around, I was drawn to the sparkle.
