Hey love bugs ! This is my first ever blog post about the hair I'm currently rocking. If you didn't know that I have been natural for almost four years. I started my journey back in 2013 when I got a really bad perm and hair cut, but that's besides the point. Let's talk about this bomb hair.
I ordered this hair because I saw a youtuber, Alexis Jeanell, review this hair. It looked gorgeous on her plus it was affordable. So I said, what the heck, why not try it out. Shipping was decent took and took about five days. Packaging was okay, nothing special.  My amazing hair stylist, Patrella, once again S LA Y E D my frontal. She never disappoints me.

But wait ... you have to go check out my video on YouTube to get the rest of the "tea" on this hair. Sorry I had to do it to you all like this. Go support a sista !

Once again, thank you for the love and support I've been receiving lately. Ya'll rock !

Over the years, I've been slowly easing myself into fashion. Don't get me wrong. I've always had an eye for it but never actually started executing trends and styles that I like. Now that I make my own money, I can experiment all I want. Today I will be sharing my TOP 5 trends that I love and personally think won't go away anytime soon.  So let's jump right to it . 

Oh how I love me a good Thrasher or Metallica band Tee. In high school I used to wear them 24/7. Majority of the time I didn't listen to the band until I bought the shirt. But I'm getting off track as usual. Band tees are an everyday staple piece. You can dress them up or dress them down as shown above. These types of shirts are sold literally everywhere. Check out your local Hot Topic, Zumiez, or even Forever 21 in the Men's section. 

I just hopped onto this trend. I finally bought my first pair of stripped pants from H&M a few months ago. Sadly I ruined them by spilling foundation on them... sad life. I've always thought this look was timeless. It's a little on the more chic side, but us fashionistas should be able to switch it up. The photos above are exactly how I style the pair of striped pants that I own. Accessory wise, I would pair it with my favorite oversized Kim Kardashian inspired shades and simple black thong sandals. 

I know what you're thinking: "This is sooo the 90's". But I wont steer you in the wrong direction lil baby. Yeah you've might of see your mom wearing an all denim outfit in a throwback polaroid and thought she was crazy. But mama knew what was up. All your fashion idols at one point rocked an all denim outfit and I'm pretty sure you went crazy over it. My tip for pulling off an outfit like this is to not be afraid of mixing specific denim colors with another. Also make sure your shoes are a pop of color like red or blue.

If you know me personally, you know that I swear up and down camouflage was the best thing ever created. I own numerous jackets like this with different patterns in my closet. In general, olive green looks amazing on all skin colors but your camo doesn't have to be only green. I've seen a plethora of colors being worn especially orange. Hands down this print is a staple piece and it should be in everyone's wardrobe. 

Monochromatic is uniformity at it's best. You can never go wrong with wearing all one color. This look doesn't have to be specifically dressy either. I've seen tons of people dress this trend down. If you try out this trend, don't over think it. Each piece doesn't have to be the same exact color or texture. That's the beauty of this trend. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone with this one.

Welp, I think I covered enough. I promise you every last trend mentioned above will always be "in style". If not comment below what trend do you think is timeless. I'm curious to know. Share some knowledge with a real one!

Are you on the hunt looking for that perfect spring / summer highlight, like I am ? Well I think we have found a winner ! Influenster and Marc Jacobs kindly sent a voxbox, featuring Marc Jacobs' new Coconut Dew Drops Gel Highlighter, for testing and review purposes. Continue reading to get a more in depth description and my final thoughts on this amazing product. 

So boom, lets gets the details on this product. Marc Jacobs Loves coconut water and how it hydrates the skin. This gel highlight has a golden peach hue, which is perfect for all skin tones but especially for medium to darker skin colors. According to the website, the coconut inside has five forms benefits. 
  1. Coconut Alkanes that help with long wear. 
  2. Coconut milk that deeply hydrates the skin. 
  3. Coconut water that provides electrolytes. 
  4. The coconut polysaccharides helps condition the skin. 
  5. The coconut fragrance provides a light scent. 
This product retails $44 in Sephora and on the Marc Jacobs Beauty website.

A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY y'all. You can use this before you apply your foundation or mix it with your foundation. You can also use your finger or a brush to apply it on the high points of your face. I prefer to use a damp Real Technique Beauty Sponge. 

When applied to my face I do notice I have to work this product in. It does dry super quick. I don't like my highlight to be too streaky but not super sheer. I do have oily / combination skin and this highlight doesn't budge AT ALL. 

Overall this product is pricey but I personally think it's worth it. My overall experience using this product has been good. Like I stated before, A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. So you shouldn't go through this product rapidly unless you use it on clients. All skin types are able to use this product.

 Why not splurge a little and treat yo self ? #CoconutGlow #contest

As always, STAY B L E S S E D
