Mixing Prints 101

Hey beauties!

Happy Saturday! It’s a beautiful crispy Fall day and Thanksgiving is coming fast! Recently, for my sisters birthday I styled her for her birthday dinner and she said she wanted something different and funky. We went to my favorite place which is of course, Target! 

When mixing prints, there are few things to keep in mind and you will look effortlessly stylish! 

1. Using a Cheetah or Animal print as a neutral. 

As seen above in the picture of my sister, she had a festive fall dress and I paired it with a cheetah print cardigan. Now I could’ve put a cream or brick red cardigan or blazer but this adds a bit of funkiness and flair to the outfit that takes it to another level. 

2. Making sure the prints are in the same color scheme. 

I have a houndstooth print and a cheetah print which you would think would not go together but these two are both dark colored and complement each other. Try to stay in the same color scheme and you can mix big bold prints together and it will work. 

3. Mixing different textures in same color scheme. 

If prints are too much for you, try mixing different textures like a faux fur vest, Lurex long sleeved top, and/or colored pant that are in the same color scheme. Since it’s the fall going into winter this can be the focal point of your outfit since wearing a coat or peacoat might be much. 

I would love to see all your pics! 




Amika Dry Shampoo Review!

Hi Beauties!!

It’s been awhile since I posted! My family has been campaigning for my husband who is running for a public office position. Back to the beauty business! 

Last month when I attended BeautyCon NYC, I stopped at the Amika booth, which the bright colors and print attracted me. The salesperson was very warm and friendly and asked me if I wanted to know about their products. I said sure and she showed me some of the popular products, one being “Perk Up” Dry Shampoo. Now I was very biased and thought that Dry Shampoo wasn’t brown girl friendly and she said that it DEFINITELY was and she demonstrated on herself and I loved the results! Her hair looked refreshed and shiny! She gave me a sample and told me to check it out and I promised I would the next time I straighten my hair.

Now keeping my promise, I straightened my hair about 3 weeks ago from the photo below and I am very active in terms of walking everyday for my job and taking kickboxing classes 3-4 times weekly. My hair gets frizzy in the back and needed to be refreshed so I figured let me try the sample.

These photos are after I used Perk Up and the other Dry Shampoo for the roots. The smell is amazing and make sure you don’t spray too much since it has white color to it and all the product is rubbed in. Then, use Perk up for mid-length and ends and it refreshes and cleans very well! I would definitely buy the full bottle since it worked so well on my hair and is increasing the life of my doobie. 

Let me know how it works for you ladies!
