So, this post is just a hodge podge of the going ons over the last couple of days.
So I’ve still been wearing the same bun with the three twists in front. I’ve changed it up a little by wearing a big red flower on Wednesday and a hair stick yesterday. But last night, I really wanted to try this bun that I’ve been eyeing for months. My hair is stretched and feeling strong and I’ve been wearing the same style for three days. However, my hair looks fine; no need to mess with it. So, that inner battle ensued and my desire to try something new waged war with my knowledge that leaving it alone when it’s fine is better for my strands. Knowledge prevailed this time, so no manipulation and the bun it is … again … for another day. *lol*
Do you ever struggle through this inner battle? Which side wins most often?
You know, I generally use Eco Styler Gel and shea butter mixed to smooth my edges, when needed. Though it works pretty decently in the morning, by the time I get home, I always have frizzies all over. Well this week, Sofn’free sent me a frickin’ massive amount of products from their new GroHealthy line, Nothing But, which is especially created for natural hair. One of the items was their Mold & Hold Wax, which I started using on my edges on Tuesday.
Gotta tell you, I’ve tried a lot of things and nothing works great all day. This stuff right here? Yeah, color me impressed so far. At the end of the day, my edges are still smooth. A full review with the ingredient lists and all that good stuff will be coming next week. But, as you can already see, it is free of a lot of stuff. One quick word, it does have dimethicone. So, if you are a strict Curly Girl, then it probably isn’t for you. But, if you’re not … stay tuned!
What do you use to lay down YOUR edges?
Did y’all see Curly Nikki’s dress from her post yesterday about attending the Essence Black Women in Music Event?!?! OMGosh y’all, that dress is HAWT!! Well, she purchased it from my newest obsession, Asos!! You see, I discovered this UK based online shop via my Lucky magazine a couple of months ago! Kirsten Dunst was on the cover and in the feature inside the mag, she had on this dope, retro pencil skirt that was, like, 50 or 60 bucks at Asos. Ever since then, I’ve been going on the site on a weekly basis, putting things in the cart (always end up with, like, $240 worth), convince myself that I shouldn’t be spending any money, leave the cart, return a week later to find that half the items in my cart have sold out, add new items to my cart and repeat. LOL!!!
Well, after seeing the dress that Nikki was rocking and checking it out to find that it was only $72 … the streak has been broken. I knew if I waited more than 24 hours, it would be GONE. And, in fact, I ordered two!!! I’m not sure of their sizes, so I got it in a 6 and an 8. Because, as you know, I’m hippy and bootylicious and it’s very fitted and narrow down the lower body as it’s cut like a pencil skirt. I was scared that if I ended up with the wrong size, the right one would be gone by the time I figured it out. And hey, with FREE shipping and return shipping at all times, how could I go wrong?!?!
I love the dress as I think it’s perfect for many occasions, including evening work events where I want to be fla-DOW, but still professional ;)! *LOL* I was planning on telling you guys about Asos once I actually purchased something and could check out the quality of the items and the service. Well, now you have a preview and I’ll be back with pictures and a full review once my order arrives! Oh, and one last thing, they have this really cool, ingenious feature. Under each item is an option, “See it on the runway” that you can select to see video of the item in action! Nice!
Have you ordered from Asos in the past? If so, what has been your experience with the quality of their items and level of service?
HAPPY FRIDAY MY FRIENDS!!
