Straight Hair at the Beginning of a New Semester

Hey guys,

Am I the only one who likes to do something different with their hair before they go back to school? I  haven't straightened my hair since July and it's funny seeing the difference.  It sort of amazes me especially because about a month ago I cut my hair in a heart-shape and so the layering of my hair is different in itself.

It makes me wonder what it'll look like when it grows longer.

That's the fun thing about hair -- the experimentation with it. So far, my experiments have only included locs, henna and cutting my hair into a heart-shape (as I've mentioned above) but it's never been anything that drastically reduced the length of my hair or changed its color.

Have you ever had a drastic hair cut? Are you planning one in the near future? Have any ideas? I'd love to hear about it!

I'm Back! - Glasses, Overalls and Turtlenecks

Hello, hello my lovely geeks!


It's nice to see you all again. I'm sorry I haven't been on in so long! I've been a busy bee. Expect more outfits in my next posts! I'm trying out different outfits for winter.

I've really wanted to experiment with turtlenecks, overalls, and necklaces (as you can see below). Overalls will probably be the most fun item to experiment with this winter, I think. Stay tuned for more overall outfits and my other fashion experiments! (And of course, I'll make them quirky and fun! What's fashion without some fun?)

I literally just wanted to wear something quirky today with no regard to fashion norms or rules - just nice jewelry and a good pair of overalls was all I really wanted today. Gotta say, I love boho-chic necklaces like the pendant I'm wearing below. Sooo fun to wear!

Fashion and Fresh Food


Hey all! How have you been?
Me?
Well I've not only been clearing out old junk, I've also been trying to dress in a minimalistic fashion, as you can probably tell from the picture above. I LOVE wearing classy colors, as you can tell by the classy white eyelet peplum and red pencil skirt pictured above.

Well, that's not the only thing that's new this week. I also got a Rocket Blender. Yep!. I've always wanted a personal blender so to be able to buy one for a low price was amazing! With it, I've already begun to make smoothies and Nice Cream-- which isn't actually ice cream because no cow's milk is included. I only used bananas and coconut milk to make the first one and added spinach, mango, banana, and pineapple in the mix.

I froze this little mix overnight and ate it with a spoon this morning.




Accompanying this, I got one of those egg and steak wraps from Starbucks. Yum!!!



I had a full, healthy meal! It felt so good as I'm always running around. As I'm trying to be healthy and cut out more sugar, I'm super excited for this. I'll be posting more recipes soon enough.

Updates



Hello darlings,

Sorry for not responding in a while. I've been doing many, many things. School has me working over time, not to mention my jobs.


Well I guess I should update you on a few things...

1. I took my locs out





I took them out around February because they weren't going to turn out the way I wanted them to. Oh well... I actually love having my hair out. Gives me time to experiment and even press it out.






2. I'm practicing Minimalism



No, I don't mean the fashion trend. (Although I do love the Minimalist Fashion style. You will be seeing it on my blog).
I mean I'm trying to LIVE as a minimalist.
I love clothes. I really do, but I do NOT need all of the ones I have. They've been spilling out of my drawers and I'd rather have some space than a pile of clothes I do NOT need. I've also found a LOT of other things that are better off tossed such as mismatched earrings. Ooh. They've been cluttering on the dresser!
I've also been trying to buy less from this endeavor which is sometimes hard when you like to spend on nice things.

3. Delicious Foods

On another note, this is the year I've begun to try out new foods around where I live. A couple of Thai dessert places have moved in as well as some other yummy food spots and I plan to talk about them as well.

Hairstyles for Locs (Dreadlocks) When You Just Need A Change

1.  Vintage Updo


Do this easy updo by folding a bandana in half, then using the opposite ends to make a knot. After making the knot, put your hair in a high bun or high ponytail (or a low bun or ponytail). * If you have bangs, fold them back and tuck beneath the bandana for a bumped look.



2. Tuck Your Locs in a Hairband


Simply tuck your locs into the headband to achieve said look.





3. A Flower Crown



A simple flower crown will do.
- Combine looks and tuck your loss into a headband and then put a flower crown on top


4.  Double Buns Half Up-do
Decide how big you want the double buns to be (for thicker ones, add an extra section of locs ). 

5. Braided Crown

1. Begin to braid the locs on each side of your head (I start where my hair is parted).
2. Where each braid ends, tie it off with a hairband.
3. Use bobby pinks to secure the braids to the back of your head.

Ta-da! Enjoy these 5 hairstyles!

God bless, you guys!

2.  Try a long sweater with an aztec print

3. Or a scarf

4. Or just go all out with a scarf and an animal/and or Aztec print



God bless!
