Recently added the NUME 3 Sum to my natural hair collection and this stuff is a God-send! Even for kinky coily gals like myself!!
It’s a 3 piece flat iron, mini flat iron and curling rod set. Very inexpensive as most flat irons sold ALONE can cost the same price as this set you get for three pieces. It gets hot enough to handle my super tightly coiled curls and keeps my hair smoothed and polished.
my hair BEFORE a blow-out and flat-iron
Let me tell you MY hair is a beast. My curls are SO tightly coiled it’s ridiculous. For best results I recommend doing a blow-out first, it will make your life ten times easier!
Here’s the AFTER!
I’d recommend using it no more than once a week and always with a heat protectant! My favorite is Sebastian Trilliant.
I also took it upon myself to test it on two clients at the salon this weekend! Here’s one of the results after I cut and styled Shantel’s hair and polished it off using the NUME iron
Here’s my video tutorial on how I used the iron and what you’ll need!
There’s something about teal and purple that just DOES it for me in this tropical paradise tutorial. It’s one of my absolute favorite color combinations and I was inspired by the randomness of things being in full bloom during the months of spring and summer.
Color makes me happy in the most indescribable way. I know now why they say people tend to be happier during the summer months than winter. No matter how much you may love the rain and cozy stylish outfits you can wear in the cold, there’s something about warmth and color that brightens my mood, softens my heart, and lifts my spirits.

I want to use the opportunity to close this post out by saying thank you. Nothing more, and nothing less. For supporting my YouTube channel and this blog. Thank you just for taking time out of your day to include me in it, one way or another. It truly means a lot and I should say this more often. As a matter of fact I will try to do just that. Have an awesome day everyone <3
I love that La Bella Couture offers celeb-inspired looks at a fraction of the cost. This day in age you can look original too by replicating your favorite celeb’s looks but spending not nearly as much.
I love the way this dress hugs in all the right places, and is perfect for a romantic date night with someone special
I was recently contacted by RPGShow to review their human hair wigs. I am extremely PRO wigs and they are definitely more ideal for me since I am constantly switching from natural, to blow outs, to long, down my back hair in different colors. I love that wigs can do that for me.
So when they contacted me based on their track record alone I was definitely interested. This was the unit that was sent to me
Really I am not a huge fan of accessories, I let the attention shine on the beautiful colors of this dress and paired it with a nude handbag (not shown) as well as pearl studs.
As for the makeup statement pieces like these are best paired with subtle, clean makeup. Perhaps even a pop of bold lipcolor/blush and lashes. THIS LOOK RIGHT HERE is a sneak peak at a tutorial that comes at very high demand. So stay tuned
