Length Check - Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment

Long time no see!
Sorry i have been out of the office for a while now,but i was growing my hair and look at the

Seriously i found this great product for the natural curly girl who still wants to rock a sleek straight look; and not worry about the time and energy it takes to achieve greatness. The Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment is like a keratin treatment, but without the harsh chemicals. Lasting up to three months, this all natural (organic) smoothing treatment has tamed my nappy roots. Allowing for flexible versatility, I'm able to wear my hair curly or silky straight with ease.

Because of the smoothing characteristics this also helps me manage my curly styles better, detangling is a breeze!

Take a look and tell me what you think:)

Repeat Offender

Apparently this has become my favorite shirt. Worn twice in one week...dont judge me!

Coming from a fun day out with the girl at Patterson Park's "Concert in the Park" series. This weeks performer was a reggae group Strykers Posse. It was a great way to get out of the house, the weather was perfect, and it was a truly enjoyable experience!

If you get a chance you should check out the rest of the concert series sponsored by the Friends of Patterson Park

Remixed Maxi

Headed out to meet  the girls at Baltimore's newest Comedy Club/ Poetry Lounge Kleosh. Quite a combination right? Well 20 something entrepreneur/poet Josh Austin and his comedian counterpart Kleon da Comedian have brought something new to Baltimore. Looking for something to do other than standard clubbing experience this is the place. Poetry night every Tuesday, various comedy shows and happy hours throughout the week, drink specials, and Hot Topic Mondays 1818 N Charles St. Owning a club is quite a feat for such young men but with the right amount of ambition anything is possible! Me and the gals attended a comedy night a couple Fridays ago and Kleon along with a couple other visiting comics showed us a good time. 

Wearing my mom's favorite maxi (which is now MY favorite maxi) coupled with a pair of hot pants, I was ready to hit the town. I got the idea from friend and fellow blogger Charlotte. Follow her on Instagram for some inspiring looks @ Ceelizzylee_x3. I completed the look with some thrifted white oxfords that remind me of Pop's "tic tac shoes" from the show The Wayans Brothers. lol Im also wearing another of Wet n Wild's lip colors in "Don't Blink Pink" told y'all I was gonna get all the colors ;)

Wet n Wild

This wet n wild lippy is easily becoming my favorite thing. Not to mention the awesome flawsome price of $1.99! Whaaaat? Hollaaaa!!! lol that was my reaction once I found out about these little gems from various beauty bloggers and instagram. This nude color is called Megalast "Just Peachy" and perfect for an everyday makeup look. I wore it twice this weekend since I bougt it on Friday and I think I'm gonna he'd to Walgreens right now and purchase the rest of the collection!

Hangin with the homies at Latino Fest 2012 in Patterson Park. Super fun, super yummy food, super cute latin lovers!

Farmer Joe-Ann

This outfit makes me feel like I'm about to toss a bale of hay. My DIY cut-offs make a re-appearance (one of many for the summer), and an oversized striped shirt I thrifted about a year ago and wore for the first time on this day. The hat came in handy as well, since I'm not a fan of my wash-n-gos since my hair cut. With my bathing suit underneath, we were on the way to Tiki Barge in Baltimore. A cool spot on the harbor, with a pool and a bar. While I was eating my chicken fingers I got the strange feeling that we were floating away, and then I remembered, oh yeah this is an actual BARGE! lol

My Wet n Wild lippy making another appearance as well...

Dope Boy Fresh

Catalina Wine Mixer 3.5!!! Got to see some old friend's and made some NW ones. The event was held at Aloft Hotel, a swanky little spot at BWI. Good times were had by all. I decided to do a little ode to my inner tomboy. I basically wore some stuff I'd previously bought in the men's section and decided to gussy it up. It turned out just the way i'd imagined.

Fluffy Clouds

After seeing Fela at Morgan State University. This AA rosette jumper is my FAVORITE top! I would wear it everyday if I could. FELA was amazing Will, Jada, and Jay-Z have done an excellent job with his one. It made me want to get up on stage and move to the drums with my Nigerian bruddah's and sistah's. Definitely a must-see! .

Colonel Mustard

I guess I was feeling these boots this week cuz I wore them two days in a row. My lips look a little pasty but trust me they looked a lot better at the start of the night! Im wearing MAC Pink Nouveau lipstick under Cultured

On the way to a happy hour at the 5 mile house supposedly "Mingle Mondays" -___- The only other ppl there to mingle with were by 2 other friends that I came with. Snoozefest. However, their drinks were extra strong and their lemon pepper wings were off the heezy fo sheezy!!

I got a new attitude!

On this edition of CHOPPED... Just kidding. Felt like it was time to change it up. Not really a big chop but just a little something different to spice it up. I haven't cut my hair in about 6 years, eer since I started going natural. No I didn't have a quarter century crisis, just wanted a more unique look. Good thing I wasn't facing the mirror when she started cutting because I probably would've cried. No joke!

My hair was cut but the same stylist that used to do my braids. Kennetha Woods. Look her up y'all!

Playtime is Over

Finally found the perfect pair of vintage Levi's to make into cut-offs. Picked them up at my home away from home, Edgewood Thrift and took a razor to those bad boys! Wore these for the first time on a day out with my god children. We ended up at a playground at Chinquapin Park where I used to play myself. Hadn't been there in 15 years but it made me feel like a kid again.

Everything Thrifted from head to toe.

Scarfing it Down

A quick fix for any stale hairdo. You know what u mean by stale, right? A hairdo that has run its course, but for some reason you just can't let it go yet. Just add a scarf and make it all over! All my scarves are thrifted, whih makes it even better.

On the way to a friends game night/bday party/ house party. My curls were getting kinda crazy here! I tried to mix the sweet floral print of the dress with the rugged look of the boots. Successful? ...I think so. lol Ive been itching to wear these thigh highs all winter, but never had the occasion to. Finally hit the jackpot with the game night :)
