IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: What's in my Choies Bag

Links to this post

I shopped Choies.com for the first time and came up on some super cute finds, unfortunately some of the items did not fit me just right.  Those pieces can be found in my PoshMark Closet, up for grabs!

I've gotten many questions on my hair, I've been wearing a 27-piece weave color #2!  It's really easy to do-- No, I did not film a tutorial or anything on the look (let me know if this is something you'd like to see).
I hope you enjoyed this video, feel free to leave your questions!

All we knew is that Milk of Magnesia did a darn good job at keeping our oily skin nice and matte throughout the day.  Though I never noticed a horrible break out spell through previous uses,  I'll be honest, I was curious about what MOM was doing to my skin.  A product that kept me matte literally all day long.  Even our best of skin primers let out enough oil to create that dewy affect.  

What is MOM (Milk of Magnesia) 
This is a product geard towards those unruly upset stomach days, only we found a way to make it part of our daily make-up application routine.  I've seen people cringe at the thought of putting this product on the face as a beauty product.

I will no longer be using the product as I've found OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel-- which I absolutely love.  When I introduce you lovlies to a product because I'm currently loving it, it is also my duty to inform you of the problems and effects I have had from it.  MOM may still be your BFF and part of your daily routine, continue use at your own discretion :)  I am not against it, but prefer my skin clear, thanks.

Flowers are great for brightening up lives.  I ordered a bouquet from the Bouqs to liven up my desk area, and the simply classic arrangement that I selected did exactly that!  When ordering from the Bouqs, you'll notice that each bouquet has a purpose/occasion.  I chose "Taking Care of Business" because that is what I am all about.  If these were not for myself, the categorized flowers would be great to send to someone after you've done work together (i.e. successful event, closed on a house, etc.) you get it, right?

You may already know that I straightened my hair for the first time last month.  I wasn't to giddy on the outcome,  truth be told. . . I believe I used way too much heat protectant and I was rather careful with the heat, keeping it at 380.  I actually had more of a blown out look than a flat ironed look.  My hair just felt stiff.  During my time of having straight hair-- when I wasn't wearing wigs I was wearing braid styles.  This style featured in today's blog post had to be my favorite.  Check out my tutorial for the look
