New Hair, New Me?









Happy and Healthy New Year greetings to all.  I hope this year grants you peace, positivity and a smorgasbord of other goodies.

Now that we got the sober and half - drunk pleasantries out of the way, this is a time for all and sundry to muster up some resolutions, half - truths and the like.

Me?  Naah.

I stopped making those New Years pledges long time ago.  

It is much easier to take stock of myself each term (school term, that is) and do what needs to be done starting with the first day of the following term.

The piles of paper that end up swamping my desk by the third week of every term?
Check.

The carefully - prepared salads/ brown rice and chicken breasts that morph somehow into roti/macaroni pie/leftover KFC lunches?
On it.

The 'can-do, will-do' attitude that leans precariously toward 'do it yuh dyam self'' mutterings in a semi-isolated corner of the office?
Work in progress.

So let's talk about meh hair a lil bit.
It has been completely natural for two years  and I am very proud that I kept that 'resolution'.










I definitely have some 'hair stories' to tell here on my blog,  it has been a helluva hair journey.

                                                      Peace.   And hair grease?

Review: LA Colors Liquid Makeup Black Walnut






I had already been using LA Girl Perfecting Liquid Makeup and loved the versatility of its lightweight, smooth finish and easy application for daily work wear.

Then I happened to spy the LA Colors brand on a trip to one of the local beauty stores and decided to try it.


This product comes in a tapered plastic bottle, complete with a convenient pump.  It is lightly scented and this product can be a substitute for brown powder or can be worn under brown powder.

I used it for a couple of weeks.  Its creamy consistency can be applied with a cosmetic wedge.

Although it looked smooth on my face, a slightly oily sheen would appear after a couple hours of wear.  Then I would have to keep reapplying setting powder.

I would have to recommend this product for persons with dry skin.

Review: LA Girl Perfecting Liquid makeup




I bought this product at a local beauty store.

This liquid makeup comes in an almost cylindrical shaped glass bottle with a pump.

When applied, this product dries fairly quickly, after a few minutes.

It is lightly scented, with a creamy consistency.





This provides light to medium coverage.

LA Girl Perfecting Liquid Makeup works well, even with my oily skin and warm temperatures.



I like this product, use it regularly in my makeup routine for work.
