Connecting Over Curls

Just over a week ago, I met up with the beautiful (inside and out) Brea. (This lady right here:)

IMG_8307Initially, I had expected to do one, short but sweet post about the encounter. It was simply going to be a transcript of an interview with an old class-mate, describing her experience “Going Natural”. But the thing is, I got so much more than I had anticipated out of meeting up with her, that I realized I needed to do a bit of an introductory post:

A few weeks ago, maybe even a month now, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a picture of a girl rocking her dyed-red, natural hair. This immediately spoke to me on a personal level, because alongside dyeing my hair purple, bright red hair has long been on my bucket list.  I clicked the image and realized that this girl with the awesome hair happened to be someone I went to high school with.

“Natural is Beautiful.”

This is the first of what I hope to be an ongoing project that runs on my blog. Inspired by Humans of New York, my goal is to A; get out of my shell, and B; bring attention to those owning their natural hair in the city (or where ever else my journey takes me).

A huge thank you to this beautiful lady for not only accepting my request for a photo, but for being so gracious and kind about it. Now I know that this is something I can really do!

Here’s to many more!

Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (On Dark Skin)

I think by now, we have all discovered how hard it is to find makeup swatches on ladies with dark skin.

Since my post on ‘What ColourPop looks like on Dark Skin’ is my most popular post to date, I thought I would do another compilation of a lipstick brand showcased on dark skin for you guys.

*This post contains affiliate links, thank you for your support*

This time, it’s Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks:

Before we get into it, I wanted to share that it was quite a bit harder to find a spectrum of videos to share with you guys (regardless of if I searched for  black skin, brown skin, tan skin), as it seems not as many people are making videos featuring all the colours of this product (in comparison to ColourPop). My personal observation is that this is likely due to price point differences. At $5 a pop for Colourpop, anyone could make a quick swatch video. For Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipsticks ringing in at $20 each, it would be a bit more of an investment to purchase all of them for the sake of a video.

**Don’t be turned off by the price though, these Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks have a lot of pros that make it worth it. They boast 24 hour wear, high pigment color, with vegan-friendly ingredients, and are 100% cruelty free.

Empty Alert – Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment

Alright everyone, it’s time for another Empty Alert:

The other day I finished my 4 oz bottle of Apogee’s Two-Step Protein. I know it isn’t saying a lot, as it was just a teeny-tiny bottle, but since this stuff really works, it is worth posting about.

Just in Time for Summer: Getting into Headwraps

If you happen to follow me on InstagramFacebook, or even Pinterest, you may have noticed that I’ve taken a very recent and very strong interest in headwraps/headscarves.

If you’ve been around since the beginning of my blog, you may remember one of my first posts being about my love for toques. I loved them (and still do) for their ease and simplicity. I use them as a lazy protective style (hiding bed-time twists for days) and most frequently, when I’m deep conditioning my hair and I realize I need to leave the house.
