From Bleach Blonde To A Red Head

I've gone red ladies! Yesss i tried to become a blonde but it just didn't work for me. No matter what i did i couldn't get that orange to go away. My roots were bleach blond but my ends lord have mercy were a crazy orange color !  

so i went to the beauty supply store and they told me to just use a regular blond hair color because it will tone and get rid of the orange. Of course i would already have the color in my hair when i realize the the the color of the dye bottle! In my blonde dye bottle was orange hair dye long story short i dyed my whole head orange!
I tried to rock it y'all Just make it look decent. Everybody loved the color my girlfriends my parents who hate every color other then my natural hair color loved this horrible color. I had to dye my hair again  i just refused to go into thanksgiving with orange hair! No matter how many complements i received my mind was set i chose two shades of red.
Creme of nature Intensive Red was the the first color it would of been the only color if i bought two boxes. It takes two boxes to cover my whole head so i couldn't find the same box so i had to match it with another. I went to every drugstore and beauty supply store in town before i found a color.
Texture & Tones Blazing Burgundy slightly lighter then the intensive red so i put this one in the back of my head.
Creme of Nature intensive red dye placed in the front i sectioned the back and added Texture & tones to the back

I left the color in for an hour rinsed and deep conditioned. Blew my hair dry i started to flat iron but decided to just do a twist out instead  i did flat iron two section to show the color difference.The back is a raspberry red  kind of pinkish color.

The front was a deep red  the two shades complement each other beautifully.
To bring this long post to a close I used my Cantu Shea butter coconut curling creme A wonderful product smells amazing leaves your hair soft and moisturized for days without having to add any other products! anyways here is my twist out! 
Just pinned up the sides to get this curly mow hawk. I loved all of these product i will be buying the same colors to touch up my colors . check out these brands ladies they are affordable six bucks each! give them a try here are the links. Creme of Nature hair colors

Kiss Ever Pro Lash Starter Kit

I got a chance to test this kiss  lash kit out By way of influenster. 100% human hair the packaging is very cute  Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit provides everything you need for amazing lashes instantly! Each kit includes 1 pair of Eyelashes, 1 3g Adhesive,and 1 PRO Lash Applicator. The new PRO Lash Applicator allows for a flawless application every time! Kiss lashes come in a variety of styles that are perfect for everything from day wear to a formal evening event.This kit can be found at Walgreens for 4.99.
I love the idea of lashes i just can't seem to put them on no matter how hard i try. This kit appealed to me because it claims to make application so easy. The lashes themselves are beautiful and full they don't feel like human hair though there very hard feeling. The tweezers one of the main attractions to the kit that's supposed to make everything so easy really didn't help me much. The tweezers are cheap plastic nothing to buy the kit for just to get a pair. The 24 HR hold glue is watery and takes forever to get tacky  my lashes wouldn't stick so i ended up using my own glue. All in all would i buy this starter kit No But i would buy the lashes themselves I love the style and they are very durable .

I'm hungry so Let's get cooking!

Spicy egg scramble

I've been on a low carb diet for a year i lost 75 pound so far. I went through somethings and forgot all about my diet now i'm trying to get back and burn off what I've gained and more so it's back to being carb free. Anybody who has tried a carb free diet knows it's hard to get full and you end up feeling hungry and annoyed!! So here is something that always fills me up and i know i can burn off easily.
                          Heat your oiled  pan on low flame
 slice one jalapeno and one onion
 Add to your pan 
 Add whatever seasoning you like i'm using garlic
 Add salt to taste 
 Cover and let sit for five minutes stir once in between

 Grab your eggs and beat them
 After eggs are beaten season with salt and garlic
 Check on your pan stir and taste if you like turn up the flame a litte to get ready for the eggs.
 Add your eggs and let sit for a few seconds then scramble 
When scrambling is done grab a dish and your dressing!
I'm using shredded cheddar and sour cream

Add some pepperoni if you like i love spice so i dashed some hot sauce on top bon appetit!

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

NYC New York Color's all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows. With four vibrant colors designed for your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are!

 This little beauty came in my Influenster blogger box. Equipped with four shadows a primer and a illuminator. All of the shadow are a satin finish the primer feels good on the lid but creases like no other.
The illuminator is supposed to transform any of the shadows into a completely  different color. It didn't really do anything for me in that aspect. It did however do the job as a highlighter after contouring my nose.
 Although i'm not big on the shades in the palette they are quite nice soft and blendable. Overall this is a nice little palette to keep in your purse. I know i will be checking out more shades a whole palette for 4.99 not bad at all. If you haven't tried NYC yet Check them out at

Bath and body works fall mini candles

Do you change the fragrance of your room as much as you change your perfume? I know i do i don't really go by the seasons i'm a woman of may moods (aren't we all) lol. So i choose to go by how i'm feeling i'm not into spicy scents so my fragrance is always in between floral,fruity or something that just smells yummy like fresh baked cookies!
I've always used plugins when it came to scents but i was recently reintroduced to candles. Thanks to influenster  Beauty blogger voxbox i got to test this delicious smelling candle from Bath and Body works.

Cider Lane—As sweet as the trip to the local apple orchard each year, a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel and sweet cinnamon. So the candle says but i only smell the caramel no hint of apples anywhere. I burnt this candle in my room for about five minutes and it was a storm of fragrance it's that amazing. The scent went from my bedroom to the kitchen and the dinning room powerful little thing.  My family loves the smell of this candle like warm caramel. I decided to keep this candle in my foyer and it just adds so much warmth to that area.
I know i will be going to try the rest of bath and body works fall mini candle. Check them out for yourself and let me know which one is your favorite!!!
