Just a little bit Peplum!


 Hey, eveyone!

My outfit for the first night of Our youth conference.

Here is a word from the message I heard last night. "Anything we place before God is an idol. Fashion can be an idol! It is great to look nice, but we have to be careful that we are not allowing fashion to become an addiction. God comes first, always!!
Isaiah 2:8-12




 











 Top: Gift, from Wetseal
Belt: Thrifted from Good will, $5
Skirt: Target: $20
Shoes: Guess pumps from Marshall's $29.99

When I put the belt on this, it made it somewhat of a Peplum top, I liked it.




I need to get a better quality camera that can upload fast because these pictures are not clear enough for me.
Any suggestions? Any that are affordable?

Be Blessed!

Fruitless without Christ



 Heyy!!! Hope all is well!

This is the outfit I wore to school today.

It was just a simple outfit for school.
My shirt says, "Fruitless without Christ"
Wearing clothes like these provides a way to witness silently and also verbally when people ask about my shirt and I'm proud to wear it. People today are so bold in showing what they believe and stand for, Christians should not be afraid to proclaim their beliefs in their clothing either.

Roman 1:16

Top: lose fitting Christian top from Salyte.com
Bottom: black denim skirt from Ross $12
Shoes: Cheetah print flats from Target $14.99










        



 I was having a good time, lol :-)

Do not be ashamed to represent Christ explicitly in what you wear!!!
Be blessed everyone!!!

Sweet Almond oil



From Google images


Hey!!!

So I've been on journey just to healthy specifically with my hair and skin. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I've heard a lot about sweet almond oil.

Well, I finally got some a few weeks ago. It can be used for hair as well as skin.

From Google images




Here are some benefits:

-Nourishes hair and smooths the hair cuticles
-Makes hair strong, long, and thick
-Adds shine to dull hair
-is an excellent carrier oil, it can be mixed with other oils such as neem oil or tea tree and massaged into scalp whenever suffering from dandruff.
-Can be used to prevent/reduce hair shedding/fall if applied daily
-Can be used as a massaging scalp oil for blood circulation
Can be used to prevent split ends, apply a little to finger tips and cover ends of hair or from root to tip.


It is best to buy an organic version of sweet almond oil. If its bot certified organic it will have other complements mixed in that are not as healthy.

I bought my sweet almond like from Wal Mart for under $3.
 It smells Sooo good!!!!!!'

Plato's closet experience and Goodwill buy!



Photo taken by Chantal



Ok so I've been hearing about Plato's closet from tv and different people and I've been wanting to go. Today I got the chance to go so I'll  tell you about my experience. Ok, it seemed like a "high class" thrift store I guess, lol. 
For me I wasn't convinced to go again. The things they had in my opinion were too expensive, I could get the same brand new for just a few more dollars. I would definitely sell to them though, I saw items in there that my sister and have. I know people who love this place though and find very nice things. I'll probably give it another try, but that was my experience today. 



Good experience:
On the away to work for school I decided to stop by one of the Good will stores :-)
I saw two skirts I really liked, but chose one and I'm happy with it. It's long, flowy and just very comfortable and I like the pattern. 
I plan to wear it high waisted with a belt and a close fitting colored top. I'll definitely show you all that outfit when I put in together, but here is the skirt.

Price: $7.49

Patterned Blazer!

This is what I wore to church this past Sunday. 
I got compliments for my blazer of course, lol
Blazer: Charlotte Russe, on sale for $20!!!!!!!
Inside cami: Marshall's, about $5
Skirt: gift, from Express

I felt elegant and very covered which I like. I wasn't uncomfortable at all in this outfit. Next time I'll try some different colors with this blazer because it seems very versatile. 

Close up of blazer
Obviously the highlight of the outfit is this blazer. I loved the pattern. It was a change from the normal blazer and I love unique things!

Retro stripes



Ok this is something else on my wish list.
It's simple, but like I said I LOVE PATTERNS!!!
I would definitely have to get a cardigan to out over it.
With dresses from F21 they have to be a certain # of  inches in order to be an appropriate length. For me it has to be at least 35" from shoulder to hem. This one is 37" so it's perfect.

$26.90 at F21

Bantu knot hair do



Since I'm not really using heat in my hair these days I have to find other ways to make my hair cute.. One of go to styles is Bantu knots. I just simply divide my hair into sections then twist and twirl my hair and secure with a bobby pin if necessary.

Products: extra virgin coconut oil
Africa's best natural oil moisture
Cantu Shea butter leave-in repair cream. 

Massage in cantu and seal with one of those oils and then twist and twirl :-)
I sleep with this covered over night,


Before


These are the results!!!  Lots of curls, that last!!! I sectioned off a front peace and made a poof. 

After

Chill Outfit Of The Day



Simple outfit I wore today to go hang out.
Black top: forever21
Patterned skirt: Marshall's: $14.99

I really love clothing with patterns especially if its a unique or tribal pattern. I Absolutely love them. This skirt kind of resembles cheetah print, but it's not.
The top I like because its extremely comfortable and loose. I'm not really into tights blouses these days. The sequined pocket gives it an extra pizzazz!

Protective up-do :-)

Ok, this is a super cute up-do I did for church. I'm really protecting my hair right now. I sectioned off the front section and Bantu knot it.
Then used Eco styler gel to slick the sides down and did somewhat of a French twist in the back (my version, lol).
I took out the Bantu knots and pinned it back, leaving a hump, then covered the top of the "French twist" with curls that were left hanging. I then accessories it with some flower clips from the one and only Forever21, they are so cheap: $1.50 for two.

This was super cute and was even cuter the first day because the curls were fresh and zoo shiny and bouncy!!!

Wedge Boots fantasy!

These wedged boots are from forever21.com
I solo want these shoes. It doesn't get too cold here in Florida, but I could really dress these shoes up even though I only wear skirts and dresses!!!!
I want these!!!!!

White blazer: forever21 about $27
Olive green Inside cami: forever21 less than $5
