Don’t Grab My Hair Because You’re Messing Up My Weave

I celebrated my 10,592.0238 day birthday this past weekend.  The theme was “Valley of the Dolls”, so I wanted to do everything doll/barbie-like — pink everything, apparel, big accessories, big lashes, and most importantly, big hair.  Now, I’ve done the weave thing from time to time, but I’ve never been consistent with it.  The maintenance and … Continue reading

Connect the Dots

As a product junkie, I’m always testing out products trying to find the next best shampoo, eyeliner, cleanser, etc.  Recently, I have been trying to combat my adult acne issues, so a few weeks ago I picked up the Bliss No ‘Zit’ Sherlock Kit from ULTA, which included:   Bliss No ‘Zit’ Sherlock Purifying Cleanser + Toner, Bliss No … Continue reading

Review :: Ojon’s Best of Damage Reserve Kit

If I ever had a hair profile status, it would read the following:   “I’m a fiery redhead, living life on the wild side, who prefers to have a little fun with being a blonde, yet also finds time to relax every 3-4 months.”   Yes, I know, it’s a dangerous combination, the coloring and … Continue reading

Well, that means it’s time for you to switch up your skincare regime and winterize your skin.  As the season changes, so does the temperature and humidity and just as we change our clothes to adjust to a … Continue reading

How Melissa Got Her Closet Back

Last Friday, I did a post on organizing beauty products and tools (“Beauty Junkies Stay Organized“) as inspired by InStyle Magazine.  Interesting enough, over the weekend I got caught up on blog reading and came across a great post on La Dolce Vita titled “Beautifully Organized: Hanging Earrings“.  The title is pretty much self-explanatory.  The … Continue reading

Beauty Junkies Stay Organized

As you all should know, I am a beauty product/tool junkie!  Seriously, I have products everywhere!   In my bathroom, I have a cabinet filled with beauty tools (flat iron, curling irons, blow dryers, combs, clips, etc.) and products (shampoos, conditioners, styling products), and I also have a cart holding my everyday stuff (more shampoos, conditioners, styling … Continue reading

Vampires, Skeletons, & Geishas :: Halloween 2011

Unlike Halloween last year, I waited until the last minute to get my Halloween costume together…a few hours to be exact.  I ran out to the costume store, and tried to think of something creative, yet simple. I purchased fangs, white paint, black nails, lashes and a black leotard. I figured I’d be a sexy vampire.  I … Continue reading
