Nighttime Curly Hair Routine 

After a long day of either school or work, I take my hair out of it’s current style and massage my scalp. I take about 10 minutes massaging my scalp as I wind down from all of the day’s activites.


Then I separate my hair into sections and dampen it with water. I apply raw Shea Butter into each section and braid my hair.
If my roots are dry, I dampen the tips of my fingers with Argan Oil and rub into my scalp.


To end my night routine, I place my bonnet on my head to protect my hair as I sleep. Quick and simple. 🙂

Bold Orange Bodycon Dress

img_5283-1

To me, a perfect summer outfit is something that isn’t restraining. I spend a good amount of my summer, wearing dresses and maxi skirts. I don’t really like shorts at all. Most of them are tight and make my thighs sweat. Shorts only seem to make me hotter; while dresses and skirts on the other hand, enable me to be cooler. Though this dress is a bodycon dress, it is not necessarily tight. I love how conservative this dress is, even if it is form fitting. I didn’t really accessorize this dress too much, because it just speaks for itself. My Happiness necklace was the perfect touch to add to this outfit. It is a very flattering dress that compliments my curves and my skin color.

Dress: Rainbow

Necklace: Charlotte Russe

Purse: Sears

Shoes: Payless

LA T-Shirt & Orange Scarf Look

This is actually a fall outfit, but I would wear it in the summer during those freak cold days. My favorite part about this fit is my bright orange infinity scarf and the pop of color it gives. Perfect for on the go, all you have to do is tuck in a t-shirt and pull on a jacket. If you wanted to go out to a dinner with friends, this is the outfit for you. To dress it up jut swap out the sneakers for a pair of black, orange, or even white pumps. Personally, I don’t believe in “summer clothes” and “winter clothes.” Through all seasons, I layer my clothes and switch out certain pieces to accommodate, what I’m doing a certain day.

Jacket: Forever 21

Shirt: JCPenney

Scarf: Mall Kiosk

Black Jeggings: Rainbow

Sneakers: BeBe

Piece of the Week: BOLD Sweatshirt

I usually hate sweaters, I can’t really stand anything long sleeve besides sweatshirt. But this sweater is oh so comfortable. It’s just like a sweatshirt, but not as thick. Perfect for windy days. I love the message behind it. BOLD stands for Becoming Our Live Dreams, basically meaning that we can do whatever we set our minds to do and achieve our dreams. I just pair this sweater with jeggings and my black statement sneakers for a simple and bold look.

Sweater: I don’t remember, sorry 🙂

Jeggings: Rainbow

Sneakers: BeBe

Floral Top & Black Maxi Skirt Fit


On Sunday, I wore this fit to church. It was disgustingly hot outside and I wanted a breathable outfit that was simple. You might remember this top from my black floral two-piece post. I paired it with what other than a maxi skirt. I may not be wearing the jacket in any of these photos, but I actually did wear it. It wasn’t just a prop haha. I’m wearing my new two strand black and gold sandals that I will be making a blog post about soon. This look would also be great for a beach day, if you ditch the jacket. For me, summer is all about versatile looks. If I can wear an outfit to different places on different occasions, it’s a win. Summer is hot enough as it is, there shouldn’t be any stress about outfits.

Jacket: Rainbow

Necklace: Real Gold that my momma bought for me

Top: JCPenney

Skirt: Charlotte Russe

Sandals: Rainbow
