What I've Been Wearing 04/12-05/12

Hey y'all! Been going out a lot lately due to end-of-year festivities, so I thought I'd do a post  on what I've been wearingggg!

When I tell you 97% of the clothes I've bought in the past year are from my job [Uptown Cheapskate].....yeah. It's ridic. But it's sooo irresistibly cheap.

Quick Beauty Tip!                                                                          

I was over my weave so I took it out-- after a year of getting sew-ins. Y'all should've seen how ratchet my hair was when I took it out and tried to comb through it. I swear it fought me back.. likeee... omg. I'm usually a DIY type of girl [I do my own nails, eyebrows, hair most times, etc.], but I had to break down and go to the salon and pay someone to fight that battle for me. She straightened it, clipped the dead ends, put a temporary Keratin treatment in it, and it looks so good now! 
Atomic Salon in Raleigh, I highly recommend it! Great service and atmosphere. 
My hair is 100% natural now and I loveee it. It's happy, therefore I am!

I feel like this cut fits me much better.

Get.thisss. This Moroccan Oil= life changing elixir for hair.
I have super thick, but fine hair & it can be hard to find a heat protectant that doesn't weigh my hair down or make it look super greasy.
This stuff is lightweight, moisturizing, conditioning, awwllll dat! *hood voice*

A friend suggested this for hair growth. I've def noticed that my normally brittle nails are much stronger after taking this daily! They also grow faster and longer. I'll have to wait a little bit to notice a difference in my hair, though.
