All About My Jumbo Box Braids

img_4083

I’m back at it again with box braids, but this time they are JUMBO! I used a total of eight packs of hair. I had two 3in1 packs with jumbo braiding hair in the color 4, which equals six packs of hair. I had another pack of hair in the color 4 and one pack and a half in the color 27 (aka the blonde hair). My hair has fifteen braids in total and they are very lightweight.

My hair took about three to five hours to do and my mom actually did them for me. It was her first time doing box braids and I was willing to be guinea pig because I couldn’t stand to do my hair everyday until I got it done again. We did the “rubber band method,” where we divided my hair into sections first and rubber band each. Than to prevent any tangles, my mom twisted my hair. The “rubber band method” is meant to remove tension from the scalp when the hair is braided and decrease the likelihood of hairaches (hair headaches).

After my hair was parted into sections, I separated the hair we bought into fifteen different pieces to guarantee that we had hair and that they were all the same size. I did not put the blonde in all the braids because I just wanted my hair to pop and not look like I went crazy with the hair dye. I loved how this turned out and I hope to someday do this on my own when my braiding skills get better. The jumbo braids were so easy and quick that I’ll definitely do this style more often in the future.

Hey lovelies! These are the other two Northeast Winterfest vlogs, which was in Rochester, NY about a month ago. For those of you who are curious about Winterfest, it is a Christian youth convention that helps bring teenagers and young adults closer to God. It is an amazing experience and I love it so much.

Hey lovelies! I just uploaded a new video. It’s a vlog for Northeast Winterfest, which was in Rochester, NY a few weeks ago. This is a three-part vlog, where each video represents a day. I spent three days and two nights in Rochester. For those of you who are curious about Winterfest, it is a Christian youth convention that helps bring teenagers and young adults closer to God. It is an amazing experience and I love it so much. Don’t forget to LIKE, COMMENT, SUBSCRIBE, and SHARE!

My Travel Essentials & Travelbag | #7DaysofJo

As a girl who has been on more than a few trips on in my life, I have certain travel essentials that I always bring with me.

Laptop & Charger & Earbuds

Depending on the trip, I like to bring my Chromebook with me to do homework (I never actually do it) or for my own personal uses like Netflix. Plus, my laptop serves as a great portable charger. Speaking of chargers, my laptop and phone chargers always have to come with me. I obviously don’t want my phone and laptop to die, what would I do? Actually talk to people lol. Earbubs are perfect to have, when you want to sleep and the bus or car is noisy. Just pop them in your ear and listen to some nice music and viola! You’re asleep.

Tissues & Hand Sanitzer

My allergies are terrible, therefore I ALWAYS need to have tissues just in case. My nose has no restraints on the road. I hate the feel of hand santizer, but it’s a must! Without hand santizer, my hands would be filled with germs and unclean things.

Glasses Case & Makeup

Whenever I travel, I only bring the bare minimal of makeup. Especially because I’m usually too lazy to do more than my eyebrows and highlight. I’m usually having too much fun to obsess over my appearnce. I have learned the hard way, the importance of bringing a glasses case for anything that is not a day trip. You got to keep those glasses safe, because they’re experience.

Snacks & Water

I get hungry on the road and need some eneregy. Need I say more?

Book & Blanket

I love getting cozy in any mode of transportation I’m in to get to my destination. A blanket and a good read is the key! There is nothing better than being on the road wrapped up in a blanket, reading a good book.

Hair Supplies

A girl cannot have her hair wrapped up for the entire trip, you know? I have to look presentable after a long ride.

Lotion & Perfume

After being stuck in one place for an excessive amount of time, lotion and perfume are needed. It’ll be horrible to smell like stale food or dried sweat. When traveling, you have to smell good and pretend it’s not a hassle.

Pinterest Makeup Challenge| #7DaysofJo

I know I’m late and I’m sorry. But here is day five of #7DaysofJo! I attempted to recreate a Pinterest makeup look and it wasn’t the best test of my skill but I did my best.

This is the Pinterest look that I wanted to recreate. I choose this look because I based it off the eye shadow colors I did and didn’t have. For some reason, I have an abundance of purple and almost all of its shades. If you want to see my process, check out the link for my YouTube video above.

I mainly used my Urban Decay Naked Heat palette for this look, but I also used other colors from other palettes. My shadows were not as pigmented as the eye shadow in the picture. Also, my eye shadow was more mauve and purple than red and burgundy.  As a makeup look, it is very cute. As a recreation, my makeup does not do the picture justice. I mean hey, this just means to keep working on my beauty skills and step up my makeup game. How do you guys think I did on this look?

Xx,

Joanna Sarah
