MaryKay’s Satin Shea Lip Balm

Hello Curlies !

I have an amazing new product to share with you today. The best part is it’s actually a set ! Yes ! It’s the MaryKay Cosmetics Satin Lips Balm and Shea Sugar Lip Scrub

They are in nice little tubs , that fit in your pocket for when you’re on the go. I have to admit that I was a little iffy about doing the review when asked by my own MaryKay Consultant Shay. Why ? Well, who wears MaryKay now I thought ? Ladies and gents ! I am proud to announce that I do ! Just these two products alone got me thinking about what else I’m missing by them

Let’s start this review …..

I have full lips , and it’s important to me that they stay nice and looking great at all times. With that tasks always come error. Some lippies cause you to have dead skin in the corners of your mouth ( yuck ) or just make your lips too moist to wear it does make them look unattractive. I didn’t experience this with these products. I first used the lip scrub , a little bit goes a long way. You only have to use a dime size to get the job done

I didn’t wet my lips only because I wanted to get everything off. I rubbed and rubbed . A lot of dead skin was removed which had me in total shock. My lips didn’t even look like it was any dead skin on them. After the scrub I dried my lips , and applied the lip balm.

My lips looked totally different! Above you will see how pink and nice they are. I did not line my lips or anything. There is not a tint under the balm at all , and the balm itself isn’t tinted. I was really feeling myself.

I suggest that you go and purchase these two items , because your colored lippies will apply even better over these two. I did it and I was very happy with my results.

I applied a nude/brownish color over the MaryKay balm and it was perfect.

Now here’s the great news! I will be giving away one of each Mary Kay products to one lucky subscriber !🎉🎉

In order to be eligible for the contest you have to make one purchase with my MaryKay Consultant Shay. I will be including her Facebook Info http://www.marykay.com/vjack

Please save your proof of purchase! Contest ends Sept 11th! Email fabolouscurlies@gmail.com for me to know you’ve entered. I will be emailing the lucky winner on Sept 14th.

Have an awesome weekend!

Always Love,

Relaxed In Victoria Secret’s Pink / Sport

Hi Guys !

I’m so happy it’s my favorite time of the year ! Fall! To celebrate my new fall wardrobe , I decided to wear Pink and VS Sport out with my hubby this Saturday. Here’s pics of my outfits and info so you can purchase this outfit will be included.

Top-Pink Cold Shoulder Black / White Sweatshirt

Size-Small

Price– $52.99

Bottoms- Victoria Sport Black/White Leggings

Size -Small

Price – $69.95

Shoes – Black on Black Leather Toe Chuck Taylors Allstars

Size – 5

Price – $54.99

The material is nice and soft , and the leggings are pretty long. If you’re short like me , you might end up with them pretty high over your belly button. The nice thing about the leggings is the string that is in the inside front to make the waist tighter if need be.

I really like that the sweatshirt is not too thick , I would say it’s the thin type sweatshirt , so in nice fall weather a jacket is not needed.

I’m happy to be sharing my first fashion post with you all , and more will sure follow.

Until then ,

Happy Shopping !

Loreal Cleansing Balm : Truth or Sad Story?

Loreal EverCurl

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a new and exciting product that I want to review . Now it’s really not new, but it’s new to my curls. It’s the Loreal EverCurl 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm.  Influenster sent me the product to review for free, and to give my honest opinion.

First off it did not have a strong fragrance , which I loved. I hate opening a product to begin sneezing like a nut. The pump in my opinion is too small, which means to get a nice amount of product you have to keep pumping continuously. The consistency is rich and creamy, which I like. It didn’t feel soapy (slippery and sticky). You get a nice small lather just to let you know it has a cleansing agent in it. Then the whole conditioning affect takes over, and you start feeling your hair softening up. Would I use the product again ? Yes! I actually want to try their other products in the EverCurl line now. You do receive a lot of product in the bottle too, so you won’t feel cheated. Try it! Then report bk to me how you liked it!

Kisses,

 

“Jewels By Adina” Company Feature

  Hey ! 

 It’s that time again for me to feature one of my favorite companies! This time I went to a local accessory designer Aina Freeman! She created the  prettiest bracelet sets for me while I was pregnant with my Prince Amir, and I swore when I started this piece on the blog she would be among the first  featured. With that being said let’s get into it !

 When did you realize you had a gift for jewelry making?

 I realized I had this gift not too long after I started making jewelry.  I initially made several different sets,  earrings   and bracelets,  and I would get a lot of compliments. I was always asked, ‘Where did you get  these from?” And I  always replied, “I made them  myself.” I remember someone actually bought the  earrings and bracelets I was  wearing one day – they were bright pink and  white. So for the remainder of    the day, I had on no jewelry. I felt so  naked. LOL!!

 

How do you come up with the different ideas for you creations?

 I honestly go to my closet for my ideas. I think I have every single color in my closet. I would get  inspiration from  my  everyday clothes I would wear during the week. If I didn’t have jewelry to wear  to match my outfit, I would go  to my  beads and put something together. If I didn’t that particular  color, I would go buy it and make something. I  also get  great ideas from my customers. I would  show samples of what I’ve made previously, make suggestions  and they  would pick and choose  different items they like. From there I would be able to narrow down a few  different pieces.
 
 I like how you make sure that you’re affordable. Do you believe that since your prices are so low  that it’s easier  for  customers to make special orders? 
 
Yes I do. I actually started because of the insane prices some people would charge for beaded  jewelry (necklaces, earrings and/or bracelets). Who wants to pay $50+ for a couple bracelets? Not  me. Most of the items I have purchased were very poorly made and not worth what I spent for  them. I make sure my customers are happy with the selected beads before I even start making  their item(s). If they like the beads to begin with, I know they will be pleased with the outcome. A happy customer is a repeat customer right?
 
  How do your pieces fit in with you being natural, or another natural?
 Choosing to wear your hair natural and your style of clothing are forms of expression. I have lots of accessories in my  arsenal. When you have a lot      going  on already (outfit, shoes, scarf, afro puff, handbag, big fro, flower, headwrap, two strand  twists, updo, etc.), simple, sparkly, custom-made jewels  would  complete any outfit. You can never rock too much arm candy.

Maybelline Nail Strips- Are They Worth It?

This is a review on the Maybelline Nail Strips that I purchased with my own money. I have been fascinated with doing my nails a lot lately, and have been purchasing nail polishes, and tools out the behind. I had been noticing that everyone was giving these nail strips a try, and for the most part they said they liked them. Me being me was like I’m going to buy me a pack and test them myself, before I tell all my readers about them.

Here’s the ones I purchased at Walmart for about $5.99Maybelline Nail StripsContents

18 Nail Strips

1 Emery Board

1 Plastic Stick (to make sure the sticker goes on smooth)

 

Pros

Fast design for when you’re heading out, and need your nails done quick

A lot of different designs to choose from

Great for a person who can’t paint their nails worth a lick 🙂

Great for someone who constantly want to change up their nails without buying a ton of nail polishes

 

Cons

The price

18 strips! Not even enough for two applications!

Instructions not as great as they could be

DO NOT LAST LONG FOR NOTHING!

 

Bottom Line

I will not be spending my hard-earned money on these strips again. In my book for as much as they charge for these things I should had got 20 strips, not 18. The other thing that upset me is that they don’t say not to apply to nails if you have on a base coat. If you do be prepared for your strips to not lay correct, and they will start to peel up almost immediately. I’m lucky that I noticed this when I did my first nail, and was apprehensive on taking my base coat off. Sucking my teeth I went ahead and applied them to my now naked nails. The sizes they give you do not match with the correct finger you would think it would, so be prepared to match up strips by turning them upside down to actually cover a whole nail. Once I got that together I was happy with my results.

Maybelline Nail Strips 2

 

These strips lasted a total of three days before the paint on the strips started coming off, then they started peeling around the edges. Hmm. I’m a mom so I have to do odd jobs around the house, and deal with two hyper toddlers, did they not think that perhaps more moms would be buying these fast manicure fixes? Um No! Couldn’t had. I’m sure placing my hand in water is what helped with the peeling also, but who doesn’t put their hand in water almost everyday? No, this product did not make it onto my summer must haves list. Maybe you all should give it a try and tell me how they worked for you, I’d love to hear.

“Oh Snap My Hip Hurts! Maternity Pillow Please!”

I remember laughing at my mom when she would say her hip hurt, and would do this dramatic little walk to be funny. Now I’m the one hunched over looking like I’m about to fall on my face. I’m currently in my sixth month of pregnancy and has been diagnosed with this hip issue that only pregnant women and old people get. Basically my sweet little boy’s head is grinding into mommy’s nerves. and making it hard for me to walk, stand or bend. Yes, my doctor has officially put me on bed rest. Good thing about this is I also get a milkshake daily, and take calcium medication.

Now one problem, why isn’t there any YouTube videos on maternity pillows? I’m seeing everything else about being pregnant, but nothing that matters. SMH! Looks like ya girl will be doing one on mine I purchase today. After reading countless reviews I decided on the Snoogle Total Body Pillow that supports my back, tummy, and hips.

Snoogle  Total Body Pillow

It is also good for your neck, and can be adjusted many different ways. Wish me luck! Be back later on in the week with an update!

Holiday Cookie Madness Begins!

 

christmas sugar cookies

Got my sprinkles! Got my cookie cutters! Ready to get to the cookie baking! I know I told you all I was going to do a cookie once a week, and post the results here on the blog. Well, I will start baking today. It’s been so hectic with Christmas shopping, homework, and my natural hair anniversary coming up, that I just didn’t have the time to play Baker Free. LOL!! Funny huh? Today I will be trying to make this caramel cookie, and I have never worked with caramel, so we shall see. Heck! If I won’t eat it, the kids always will, anything sweet and my thirteen  year old son devours it. One gulp! Gone! 

I did go crazy in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart, because I wanted to make this fun, and I didn’t want to have to run to the store to pick up more supplies if needed. I hope that this cookie challenge give you all a few ideas for your own cookie creations, or you can just try mine. 

Talk to you all soon, remember to be jolly! IT”S CHRISTMAS !!
