Jet Black!

So, I clearly don't follow rules and dyed my hair again after doing so last weekend lol. I am going to be so sad when all of my hair falls out. This time I am very happy with the results and it looks jet black! The color I used last weekend was a rinse. This time I used Clairol Natural Instincts in Espresso Creme (rich black) which is semi-permanent, I had good results with this in the past. I am also very pleased because my hair is still curly and looks pretty much the same as it used to! there are a couple pieces that are a little heat damaged though. I am getting another sew in put in on Saturday, I will be back with pictures!

My hair is wet in the pictures, this is right after dying it.

Flexi Rods!

I tried flexi rods for the first time! I like how it came out. I just did two pin curls in the very front and used five flexi rods and left them it in for about an hour. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

So Fickle...

So, in my last post I was talking about how much I liked my weave and didn't know when I was going to take it out, my mind quickly changed. I took it out yesterday and I am so mad I did. It still looked good and I really hateeeee my hair right now. Last night after I took it it out I washed it, did a hardcore protein treatment, attempted to dye it jet black, and conditioned over night. Today I washed out the conditioner, blow dried and flat ironed it. It looked awful so I rewashed, blow dried and flat ironed again lol. I guess I figured that wasn't damaging enough so I repeated the process for the third time in like 3 hours lol. I still was not please with the results but this seems to be as good as it is going to get. These are the results of my last flat iron. I don't know what it is, but my hair does not look or feel like it usually does. It usually feels pretty silky when I flat iron it, this time it is more soft and fluffy. I'm guessing this is a result of heat damage, the protein treatment, or the color. I am also kind of mad because my hair didnt turn out as black as I wanted.I think I might get Senegalese twist next so I don't end up bald, but whenever I get those I end up taking them out after 3 weeks. I am a bit frustrated with my hair right now.

Ignore my face, I was too lazy for eye liner and masacara after my hair ordeal lol

Basketball Wives Inspired Earrings

So, I have never watched Basketball Wived but I love these earrings! I saw similar earrings all over the internet and had to get some for my birthday dress. I ordered mine from Mademoiselle Cafe Au Lait's Chic Boutique on Etsy for 32$. I ordered theBasketball Wives Celebrity Inspired Rhinestone Crystal Hoop Earrings- GOLD Diamond HULA HOOPS in large 3 1/4 inch

The earrings are gorgeous for night or day and do not feel heavy in my ears at all.The seller also has a lot of other nice earrings. I would def order from her again. My items arrived very quickly and the packaging was also very cute (didn't take pictures). Check her out!
ignore my nails, lol they need help

Here are pictures of me wearing the earrings, I hate how my lipstick and cardigan look like they are the same color bc they are not lol :

Back! + 1 month weave update

I finally got a new camera! But, I think I hate it lol. I don't seem to have a problem with outside pictures, but when I take pictures indoors they sometimes come out really red. I like the way the camera looks a lot, it is a FujiFilm finepix s2900, I just don't like how the pictures come out. The camera has more settings than I am used to though so I prob just have to learn how to use it, if any one has any tips please helppp. I was going to get a really nice camera but then I realized this is my 3rd camera since Thanksgiving so I don't want to spend a lot just to lose or break it.I have really missed blogging so much and I have a couple things I want to post about right away! Missikko sent me a flat iron to review, so once I take out my weave  I will test it out on my natural hair and post a review for you all. I also bought a tripod so once it arrives and I do some fall shopping Ill post some OOTDs!

My weave is still going strong lol. It has been a month since I first got it installed and I think It still looks pretty good. Im excited it lasted so long because I only paid 75$ lol. I have washed it 3 times. I washed, blow dried, and flat ironed it yesterday. These pictures are from today. I'm not sure when I am going to take it out. I think I may get another one after I do. I used Outre Remi Yaky and I do like this hair. It still tangles some, but not as much as most. I have experienced very little shedding and I did not seal the wefts. 

I got a little camera happy, but these pictures show how the hair is holding up.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
