Product Review: Nail Tek II: Intensive Therapy

If you're having problems, much like I did, growing long, resilient, and healthy nails, look no further than Nail Tek II: Intensive Therapy. As described on their website:

"Intensive Therapy helps heal weak, thin, soft or peeling nails. This unique protein formulation seals the layers of the nail together. With each application, Intensive Therapy reinforces and thickens nails while promoting strength and flexibility."

My nails have grown so much and are extremely durable. I strongly recommend it if you have soft , brittle nails or if you have problems resulting from biting down on them. I'm currently on my second bottle and plan to move onto Formula I for strong, healthy nails soon. They both retail for $10.95.

Music Alert

I'm probably late with this but there are a few tracks that I have on repeat I thought I'd share with yall.

1. Rihanna - Man Down and California King Bed off of her LOUD album.

2. Keke Wyatt - Who Knew? & Weakest off of her Who Knew? album. Though the album came out a year ago I just caught on to these two tracks and have to say she is totally under appreciated - such a beautiful voice. Peep her style and makeup looks in the Who Knew? Video - Flawless!

3. Keri Hilson - All the Boys, Breaking Point, and Let Me Down off of her No Boys Allowed album. The last track I mentioned is really an interlude at the end of the song Lose Control Ft. Nelly (check the 3:33 mark).

I'm sure you can tell, I'm an R&B head. Hope you enjoy.

Makeup Look: That YouTube Got Me feeling Bold

So I happen to be an avid (some might say obsessive) YouTube fanatic. It's incredible how so many of these talented young ladies come up with so many amazing makeup looks and take the time to not only share these looks but give us step by step tutorials as to how to achieve them. After lots of watching and admiring...I attempted my own 'light' makeup look for festivities later that night. Sorry, my lighting wasn't the greatest.

                                   Almost ready (Yea, got my Bantu Knots in)

                                                                      Finished Look!

                                                                Finished look with Hair!

I think it turned out pretty cute - but my skills certainly have a way to go. On to more tutorials I go.

Allow Me to Introduce...


I contemplated for a long time whether or not I should actually start a blog. There are always those questions lingering in the back of my mind like: What if no one reads? What if people don't think I'm fly? What if this ends up being a flop? But the truth is I decided to go ahead and do this because I know that this blog will serve as a platform for me to inspire and to be inspired. I love fashion, I love glamor, I love music, I love movies, and I love makeup. I'm excited for all the potential this has; this isn't just some plus size or curvy style guide, it's everything ME. Join me on this journey as I show you, the world, and even myself, just how fly this curvy girl can be - BOLDLY!
