Cinnabun it up!


Hello ladies!
Today I wanted to share one of my hairstyles I created this morning with the help of YouTube, some bobby pins, a polka dot headscarf , and of course a drop of creativity (Chuckles). For starters, It's been really cold here in Denton, TX and the weather is not a good friend to neither me or my course, natural hair. In spite of this, I decided to contemplate a few hairstyle ideas I can wear throughout the winter time so that I wont end up with dry brittle hair towards the end of the week.

 I decided to explore YouTube yesterday and I eventually stumbled upon one of the cutest hairstyles I've ever seen called the cinnabun. The cinnabun is a cute protective style which requires you to roll, tuck, and pin your hair into a beautiful bun shape. After watching a  select video from a beautiful natural vlogger ,onyxbeauty1988, I decided to give this hairstyle a try. As you can see below, I decided to do the cinnabun hairstyle in the back of my hair while leaving out a twisted bang in the front for some extra flair. :] 
(Cute right???

Take a look!



Items needed:
1.)Elastic headband                               2.) Polka dot scarf                                       3.) Bobby pins

To achieve this hairstyle you will need an elastic head band, a cute head scarf, and of course lots and lots of bobby pins. Next, I recommend you watch onyxbeauty1988's cinnabun hairstyle video for a step-by-step process on how to achieve this cute and elegant hair style. Trust me, it's a perfect updo for natural hair in the winter time! :)

Hey ladies, do you guys like updos as well? What about the cinnabun hairstyle,thoughts?

Dorm Room Makeover: Drab to Fab!

When I first arrived to Texas Woman's University I was very eager to start my new life run away. As you first move into college you're surrounded by strangers, weird locations, and of course a brand new room which doesn't feel or look like "home" at all. To make matters worse, I was given a very dirty dorm room which reminded me of a roach motel. Well, I take that statement back, my new dorm room was worse than a roach motel! When I first moved in I was greeted to dust, cobwebs, and of course doo-doo stains on my bed. ( I'm not kidding ) My new room was very dirty, empty, and just plain ole' boring so I decided to visit Hobby Lobby to completely transform my shabby room into a living area fit for a queen. (*cough* That's me!)   

While shopping at Hobby Lobby, I saw a lot of great items and decorations that would match my room perfectly. Before I bought any items I decided that I would only pick up decorations which entailed the Eiffel tower and the colors purple and black. Purple and black are the two main colors of my prom dress so I thought  it would be a very cool idea to incorporate my room around those exact colors. With a small budget of 100 dollars, I eventually settled and bought some really beautiful items for my room. I also bought some really cool items for my desk area as well since it'll become the main spot where I will spend majority of my time. After a few hours of decorating, cleaning and organizing, my shabby room was transformed into a chic living area just for me. 
The pictures don't lie. Take a look! :) 


Study Area

This was my study area before I went to Hobby Lobby.


Look at it now, BAMMM!!!

My prom picture was the main source of inspiration for my new and chic dorm room. I'm usually the kind of girl who always goes for pink items and such ,but I wanted to try something new and completely different while channeling a whole new me (plus,the color pink is soooo yesterday).  I was completely in love with my prom dress's color scheme,purple and black, so I chose to mainly revolve my room around those two distinct colors. Judging from the pictures, I think I nailed the perfect dorm room, eh? 

Thank you guys for reading. <3

Items purchased:
* "Keep calm carry on" pillow
*Purple oval candle holders
*Black rhinestone candle holders
* Eiffel tower wall sticker
* Eiffel tower statue
* "You Look Gorgeous" wall-lettering
* Butterfly stickers
* Peel-able word stickers

Here's a very short clip of my dorm room. Go on don't be shy, click the button! :)

Walmart Beauty Haul

Beauty Must-Haves:

Hey Beauties!
Recently, I took a trip over to one of my favorite stores, Walmart.
Much to my surprise, I found some really nifty beauty items that were fairly cheap. Personally, I'm one of those type of people who loves a great product along with a great bargain as well. I managed to snag some really effective products for my personal use which retailed around the price of just $1-5 dollars maximum. 
That's a steal right? (Hell yeah!)

These items are as follows:
- Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil
-Paradise Spa Vanilla Icing Body Lotion (yum!)
-Paradise Spa Vanilla Icing Shower Gel
-Clear Scalp&Hair Therapy Shampoo-Ultra Shea
-Handi Sandi Hand Sanitizer

What are your favorite beauty products from Walmart? Do share. ;)

Happy Blogging,
