Hair Inspiration for When I'm Feeling Blah

Everybody has those hair ruts. Whether you are relaxed, natural, transitioning, straight, kinky, curly or otherwise, sometimes you just look in the mirror and wish that you could blink and change the look you usually love so much. Recently with the added growth of my hair, I've been in a blah stage. My old hairstyles don't work quite the same and it's forcing me to be creative. Ugh! I have wanted to pick up the scissors on many occasions but I just stick it out and look for inspiration. 

The celebrities below help me do just that!  They have lengths, textures, patterns, and thickness similar to my own. The heads of hair on these chicks give me a renewed sense of love for my own. Hopefully, they can inspire you through your shaky days too!

Tangle Teezer Review!

I have waited more than 2 months to review the Tangle Teezer as I am somewhat quick to support a product which I have initially fallen in love with in only one use (i.e. Denman brushes, Jilbere comb). At this point, I can definitely say I like this item. There are a few things that I hope the distributors of the Tangle Teezer improve upon. But overall, I'm happy with my purchase. 

 Like with many new items that enter the market, I'm a little slow to jump on the bandwagon. This was especially true with the Tangle Teezer. I had just paid a nice little penny to purchase my Denman paddle brush online and I had become very fond of it (see my review on the Denman here). Furthermore, I wondered how a 47 year-old British man could know anything about detangling my kinks. 

But the whispers about how great this "miracle brush" was became roars online. I was intrigued, but still remained faithful to the Denman, which I actually still love. After my good friend and hair buddy tried it and loved it, I figured what the hay...there's nothing wrong with having more than one awesome tool in your arsenal...*product junkies nod in agreement*

My New Toy...MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme - Goes and Goes

I don't do hauls on expensive makeup. And for some, MAC may not be expensive. For me, it is. That's my truth and I'm standing in it (thanks Suze Orman lol). When it comes to department store and higher end makeup, I like to build my collection piece  by piece by allowing myself little splurges here and there. And it has to be something special. I have my MAC favorites that I will always repurchase like their Lipglass in Lust and Lip Pencil in Chestnut and Cremesheen lipstick in Creme d'Nude. 

Then there are little treasures like this...
