Sammydress.com Dress Review

Hey guys! I received this gorgeous dress from Sammydress.com. You can check the dress out here. The site has so much to pick from; dresses, jewelry,bags and more! I picked this dress because its like nothing I own. The dress fits me well and I love how it hugs my hips so that it creates a nice shape. The dress comes in small, medium and large ( I am wearing a large).The color really stands out and having the back cutout adds even more uniqueness to it. I paired the dress with some nude heels from Aldo. I'm planning on wearing this dress to an upcoming bridal party/bachelorette party.

Products I use for my hair journey: Part 1 Moisturizers and Oils

It wasn't until I started my hair journey did I learn how import is it to moisturize and seal my hair every night. Before I started my journey I would just wrap my hair up and leave it at that. I would never use any kind of moisturizer or oil before wrapping my hair up for the night. Up until now when I would wake up my hair would be dry then I would add moisturizer before I styled my hair. But now every night before I wrap my hair for bed I moisturize and seal my hair with oil and it makes a huge difference in my hair. I even did a small experiment to see the difference in my hair. I went a whole week without moisturizing and sealing my hair and I will never do that again. My hair became very dry and hard to manage when it was time for styling.

Steps I take to moisturize and oil seal my hair.

Step 1: I part my hair into four sections. I have very thick hair so to ensure I get every strand coated evenly I have to part my hair.

Step 2: Take a section and apply moisturizer (pictured below) making sure to coat root to tip.

Step 3: Detangle the section using a wide tooth comb.

Step 4: Seal the section with oil (pictured below).

Step 5: This step varies depending on what I want to do with my hair so here are some of the things I may do.
         A: Clip section away from the others and repeat steps 1-4 on the other sections then gather all the sections together for a low bun.
         B: Bantu knot finished section, size of knots varies each time I do them.
         C: Clip section away from the others and repeat steps 1-4 on the other sections then gather all the sections together to wrap hair, I do this when I want to keep my hair straight.




This is the only hair moisturizer that I use. I started using this four years ago and I have never used anything else since. You can find this in just about every CVS, Target, Wal-Mart and Sally's Beauty Supply

I use all three of these oils (not all at the same time). The coconut oil is amazing for my scalp. I have a very dry scalp and the coconut oil has helped my scalp along with a shampoo (which I will talk about in another post). The Argon oil is my go to oil for everyday. It is on the pricey side ($9.99 from Sally's Beauty ) but totally worth it. The other two coconut oils I found at my local Sam's Club and Kroger but I have Amazon links below each one if your unable to find them near you.

Water Marble May 2014: Marble #2

I tried a glitter polish for this look and it worked out. The trick for using glitter polishes for water marble is to use a thin glitter polish. I of course used OPI Alpine Snow as the base color (my favorite base color to use for water marble). Click here to see the video!
