My September Birchbox!!!!!

Yay!!! My Birchbox has finally come and I am super excited!!--Well to be honest, It came about two weeks ago but a morena be busy sometimes...

Birchbox is simply a beauty product company that send you samples of thousands upon thousands of products for a small fee every month. If you like the products, you can buy the product online. You can accumulate points and when you have enough points, you can save on the products you want to buy

Anywhoo!! I will show yall what is exactly in my box, even though I have not used any of the products yet.. Here we go!!!

Incoco--Nail Polish Applique'

How to Use:
"Take off any existing polish and buff nails thoroughly to get a smooth surface for application. Each package comes with about 16 nails so you have some wiggle room if you mess up. Find the strips that fit your nails the best, and remember that you can stretch them to fit even better. Peel off the backing to the nail strip and place it on your nail, stretching it to fit. Use a file to get rid of the excess and continue to the rest of your fingers."

I wonder if I can use this on my nails... since they are faux okay....
I plan to use these for a special occasion.


Jouer Lip Enhancer

How it Works:
"The key ingredient in this amplifying treatment is Maxi-Lip, which increases blood flow to your lips without any stinging. Beyond looking fuller, your lips will also be well hydrated because of the built-in vitamin E, shea butter, and jojoba oil."

I don't think I will need this for the enhancing of my lips.. but my lips always need moisture.. I will see how this goes.


LIV GRN C2C Fragrance Collection in Earth

What's its made of?
"Top notes of jasmine and green leaves blend seamlessly with middle notes of lavender, lily of the valley, and the ocean to give the fragrance its lively and floral appeal. Base notes of musk and sandalwood anchor the scent, but don’t overpower."

I plan to wear this today to a natural hair meetup and if you guys know me.. I am a perfume freak!!-If this smells good I will most likely purchase it.

Last but not leastttttttttttttttttttt!!! lol

Pangea Organics Facial Cream for Normal to Combination Skin

The Birchbox Breakdown

"An ecofabulous marvel: this silky cream absorbs quickly and penetrates deeply (you can really feel it!) to deliver anti-aging and antioxidant benefits. Perfect for normal or combination skin, it uses essential oils and herbal extracts to balance and hydrate. Plus, it has a refreshing, and downright lovely, lavender scent."

&& How it Works
"The star ingredient is grape leaf extract, which has potent antioxidants that perform a laundry list of functions, from supporting collagen retention, preventing moisture-loss, and regulating oil. If that’s not enough, ginger works to stimulate and restore skin while lavender purifies and balances."

I am really excited to use this.. I am really anxious so see if it works.

You know I will give you ladies and gents an update on my Birchbox. Most likely next week and on YouTube of course!!!

2 Years Natural!!!-My Curlyversary!!!

Okay guys... its a long one.. lol

BIG CHOP--- 9/23/09

I stepped out the shower, put down the scissors and wiped the steam off the mirror. "MahHhHhHhHh... My hair is all gone!!". I look to me left I small pile of relaxed hair at the corner of the bathroom... As I think to myself.. I know that there is no turning back now, and I have to live with what I just did. Knowing that morning after I have to go to school and go to work. The rush of adernaline was in my system for the rest of the night. I was scared to hear what my mom would say. I opened the door.. a rush of steam leaves the bathroom...leaving my fears in my heart.. My mom looks at me and says "That was the hair my baby was born with". From there I knew that I made the right decision.

One Year Natural--9/23/10

--What a year that was. The year of the product junkie. I bought everything and anything the YouTube natural hair guru's bought and became extremely upset that that products did not work for me."What the hell!!, I did everything she did and nothing..and where are my curls?!?!". Imagine that time I thought I would not have any curls at all. I also thought that I had to make sure I did not look like a boy in the early months so big earrings was my best friend at the time. The first month flew by so fast.. I finally mastered my wash and go and my curls finally came in... BUT they had different coil patterns and textures and for the next 5-6 months I had to master the way to deal with the three types of textures and what products would work well for all THREE of my textures. I also named my hair Boucle'--French meaning for "to curl". It so sassy and she like the name too!
--Oh I cannot forget about coloring my hair!!!--People say that you cannot color..BLAH BLAH BLAH.... As you can see.. I color my hair permanently and my mane is looking great and feeling great. You have to condition, moisturize and seal... Doing those three things will make your hair look totally awesome.. I finally got the hang of co-washing around that since I started to color and wanted to retain as much moisture as possible.My hair grew a lot faster than I thought. I constantly did wash and goes...Never did much protective styling...

Fast Forward--Two Years Natural 9/23/11
--This was the year when I started to do protective styling.. My hair was getting long and that past winter it was really cold in New York.. I realized one night that could not do any wash and goes because the cold weather would literally freeze my hair.. I immediately fell in love with twist-outs. My hair grew like crazy!!! I celebrated my year curlyversary by dying my hair black. Permanently. BIG MISTAKE. I got bored with it immediately, and the only way to get rid of the black was to bleach my hair brown. Boucle' had such a bitch fit that March when I dyed it. She was so dry.. I doubled up on conditioning which made her more calm and relaxed. I also blew out my hair twice after I became a year natural. I was very surprised of how long my hair was getting.. but I did not feel like it was me anymore. After two to three days I go back to curly. I did not mind at all.
--I also found things that actually work on hair depending on what I wanted. From the Oils I adore like Grapeseed, Olive, Sweet Almond to products like Bee Mine, Kinky Curly, Hair Rules, Eco-Styler and Curlz. Depending on how I wanted me hair to look.. I go to those certain products. I also made a shea butter that I actually liked because the other ones I bought I never really liked.. My Grapefruit-Vanilla scent drove me wild and my ends loved it in the summer. I was and still constantly doing protective braid-outs and twist-outs... I also put senegalese twists in for my birthday.. but only for a month because I missed my hair.

Boucle is in a protective style because I bought myself a wig for my curlyversary.. I will be wearing it tomorrow for a natural-hair meet up. I ordered some business cards for myself because I am planning to take my blogging seriously and I am proud of myself and I just want to share my journey with everyone.

I am happy that I made the decision to become natural. It is one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.

Thanks Charissa!!!

Good-Bye Black!!

Yes!!! I did it...
The black hair is gone..

Well, I had to go to a salon to "strip" the black out of my hair. I am surprised that my hair took it so well. Then she put a mixture of a red and a brown rinse and applied it to my hair. This picture above is the result.

I am so happy!!
I will be a bright ass red head by the summer!!

Not Kool-Aid Red... a nice fiery color... Like the one I had in my hair last year...

like this..

I think by my birthday it should be that way again...
&& Yes my hair was healthy
