The denim jacket – never thought I’d rock it with confidence. There’s something about denim jackets that aren’t exactly something I’d easily pick out when shopping. But somehow this just kind of works. And I am digging the tie-dye too. And now I can’t get rid of this thing! Every time I wear it I get tons of compliments on it. And surprisingly I can wear it with like, everything!
On a side note (aside from June Gloom) I am so glad the Los Angeles weather is warming up and I’m able to dress more free spirited these days. How are you all handling the seasons changes where you live?
Also if you have specific fashion or outfit requests you’d like to see here (dressing for your body type, how to wear denim, etc) please let me know! I’m all about combining sexy, edgy, chic and comfort ll at one and if you’d like to see more posts like these please feel free to let me know! I draw fashion inspiration from anything and everything and my style is so versatile it can’t possibly be pin-pointed in just one category. I am also working on starting an online fashion boutique in the future, this is another one of my childhood dreams. Please keep me in your prayers!
As always, just want to end this post by saying thanks for stopping by, reading and supporting. May this week bring you warm smiles, love and laughter. Going to make it more of a habit of leaving words of encouragement, you never know who may need them! Have an awesome week my lovely readers.
Bombshell, Victoria’s Secret hair; one of my favorite ways to rock the hell out of a wig. This look is super easy and can be done on all hair types and minimal tools needed.
I used my new NUME curling rod to get these full, voluptuous curls. It should be known
Other things you’ll need
Large butterly clip
Wide tooth comb
Fine tooth comb Hair Spray
Bobby pins or pincurl pins
I must say, after the first unit I received from RPG Show this unit feels a bit more dense and fuller. I can definitely appreciate a wig with more hair on it! I plan on rocking the pants off this ombre look. It’s my first time doing ombre and I am loving it!! Also I must add that my favorite part about this style is throughout the day the curls start to drop into a looser body wave, and you can easily get a week’s worth out of these curls on this wig when done properly. Or just keep pincurling it at night if you want it to look as fresh as first day hair.
I hope you guys enjoy one of my favorite ways to rock my wigs. As always, thank you for watching, reading, participating, commenting, liking, and just all around being engaged and in tune with my channel and my blog. I appreciate the comments and positive feedback you guys give as readers and look forward to continuing to honor your beauty requests and questions as you give them to me. Lots of love.
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
