Happy Hump Day Sweeties! I’m fresh off my trip from New Orleans (more on my trip later) and I can actually say I’m a bit refreshed. After four flights in three days I managed to get a lot of sleeping in. The plane is probably the only place I could sleep, I was in New Orleans, remember? It’s always good to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of life and just relax. But it’s back to the grind for me and there’s already so much to tell you. Get the latest below.

Flips-Hair-How-I-went from-Curly-to- Straight-oohlalablog-9

Sweeties,

Natural hair is so versatile. You can rock your curls and then flip your straight hair. I started this natural hair process four years ago and it took a while to transition. I didn’t do a big chop, instead I wore weaves to get me through that rough period. Unlike many of my natural sisters, I don’t rock my curls often. I’m a natural girl that keeps her hair as straight as possible. So why no perm it? I know that’s what your thinking, but since I ditched the relaxers my hair has grown tremendously. More importantly I have healthy hair. I also love the option to rock my curls when I feel like it! And that’s exactly what I did. Check out how I went from curly to straight. The story behind my process is pretty funny.

Who doesn’t love a relaxing manicure. Its the perfect me time. I try a new polish every week, but sometimes my favorite colors are in heavy rotation.  The only gripe with mani’s is the drying time.  I’m a little impatient. I want cute nails , but I hate waiting, so nail strips have been my go-to-products for #ManicureMondays. It’s easy, breezy, and drying time is pretty much non-existent. I’ve tried just about every nail strip out there, but I’m just getting around to  Kiss Nail Dress nail strips. So here are my initial thoughts.  Continue Reading »

Nicole Richie can do no wrong in my book. She has consistently served up flawless fashion shoots and her street style is also noteworthy. This combination of flawlessness has made the “House of Harlow” designer my new style crush. This fashion spread she slayed for Elle Australia‘s July issue just brings home my point. She looks gorgeous.

For the cover, shot by Justin Coit,  the “#CandidlyNicole” star  sported  a black mesh and embellished Louis Vuitton top and feathered headdress.
