Happy International Women's Day!!

Happy International Women's Day everyone!!!

Today we celebrate the many women who have paved the way for equality for women of all races, religions & ethnicities.

They have constantly shown the world that being a FEMINIST is a positive thing, and that there's no reason that we should be ashamed to be open about it.

I am a feminist. I believe in equality for all in every single aspect that this life gives us. I believe that every woman has the right to speak her mind, and to have her own voice.

So, I got my first tattoo for my 20th birthday last year & it says "I am woman, hear, me roar."

For those of you who don't know,  it's a quote from the song "I am Woman" by the AMAZING Helen Reddy, who initially gave me the courage to be OPEN and PROUD about being a feminist.

I just wanted to give my thanks to the four women who so far have inspiration me to be myself and also spread the message about equally for not only women, but all persons of different groups. 

Today I celebrate,  Maya Angelou,  Helen Reddy, Coco Chanel, and of course! Lena Dunam!! 
All as one, these women represented woman's rights in music, fashion,  film, and writing;  I am forever thankful.  

"I am woman, hear me roar. In numbers too big to ignore.  And I know too much to  go back and pretend. 'Cause I've heard it all before, and I've been down there on that floor
No one's ever gonna Keep me down again.
Oh yes, I am wise, but it's wisdom born of pain.
 Yes I've paid the price, but look how much I've gained. If I have to, I can do anything. 

You're more than welcome to share the women's who have inspired you.

New Hair = Endless Selfies!

Many girls can relate to me on this!!
Wait, so am I the only one who takes ENDLESS amounts of selfies once I get my hair done?
Especially a brand new hairstyle?? No? ok...

So, just so you guys know. This is NOT, I repeat, it's NOT virgin hair lol. 
This is hair that I found at a local beauty supply store in Lafayette, LA.
Side note: 
(For those of you who don't know, I moved to Broussard, LA form Los Angeles in mid/end of January)

But anyways, this hair was literally found with the color already applied!! 
I ended up paying (my mom lol) about $30.00 for three packs!!!! WHAT?! Yes ma'am! 3 PACKS
I have:1 20 inch
          1 18 inch
          1 16 inch
It came with little hair pieces to make a closure, but I didn't have time for all that lol
I like for my closure to already be made for me! Am I not the only one??
Yes, the hair does shed simply because it isn't virgin hair, so it's definitely
good for a month or so, depending on how you take care of it.
Oh, and I do actually install my weaves myself; I REFUSE, I REFUSE to pay $200+
just for someone to install the hair for me. 

I promise you guys!, it's not as hard as it looks lol. All I have to say is YouTube is your
best friend! Trust me when I say this. I promise, practice makes perfect.

Attend a Wedding with City Chic

Hello everyone!! 
So, in case you guys had NO IDEA, i worked at one of City Chic's store in Northridge, CA.
I have to tell you guys how much I loved working there and how amazing their clothes are!
One thing I've noticed is that they have AMAZING pieces in their Chic Boutique, which basically displays dresses that you can wear to a wedding, gala, party, or any special event.

Who is City Chic?
By the way, City Chic is a fashion brand from Australia and they ONLY cater to + size women (14-24).
Their sizes are literally made to fit a woman's curves!!

There are so many weddings taking place during the spring, so I thought I'd share with you guys a few dress options from City Chic, that would be very appropriate for a wedding guest to wear.

14 = XS
16 = S
18 = M
20 = L
22 =XL
24 = XXL

Because of City Chic's unique fit, I would recommend that you head over to one there stores and try on a few things, just to give you a better idea when you shop online in the future.
