Hey Loves!! I'm so excited about the upcoming events for 2012 Va Fashion Week.  Some people get excited sitting in the stands at football or baseball games; well, I get super thrilled about anything involving Fashion, Makeup (beauty) and Natural Hair!! Events like these make me feel like a school girl in a candy store (lame reference, i know :D

Anywho, I hope I can get to cover this event. Be on the lookout for some posts from me on what I see. I hope to see some of you guys at these events. You don't want to miss them!

A Little Help, Please!

Hey loves,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday so far.  Right now, I wanted to share a little more about something in my life and to ask you guys for a little help.  If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen this.

This is not something I would normally do, however, in light of the circumstances I'm willing to step out of my comfort zone a little.
Feb. 2, 2012 my oldest son, Donovan, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). This day forever changed our lives! To assist in making sure no other parents have to go through what my husband and I went through that day, my family and I will be participating in a Juvenile Diabetes Walk on Oct. 27 in Newport News, Va.; and we are asking (if you are able) for donations toward finding a cure. To give you a little background on this disease: it has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and the child or adult is insulin dependent for life (without a cure) and has to maintain these levels EVERY day and night (multiple times).  This is not something I would wish on my worst enemy!!

Here is the link to our team page if you are willing to give. A little goes a long way and every penny is much appreciated!!

Thank you so much in advance for your support, encouragement and kind words!

Deanna and Family

Sneak Peek-Work hair

Hey loves-I wanted to give you a glimpse at the hairstyle I wore to work on Friday (Oct. 5). I have no issues with having natural hair and being in the working world.  However, sometimes I wonder what others will say with some of the hair styles I wear :/ lol.  I'm not the type to wear the same hairstyle for a long period of time so I'm constantly switching it up. Take a look at how I wore my hair to work recently. What do you guys think? Do you think naturals should scale back their hairstyles for the work environment?

I actually received more comments/compliments from my students than my collegues lol.

Jewel Tones!

Jewel tones are on trend this Fall season and I'm lovin this jewel tone shade by O.P.I from the Hong Kong collection-"Jade is the New Black."  The color is so pretty!! I just picked it up yesterday so we'll see how long the wear is.  Take a peek...

Find it here ----> You can find this shade at Ulta or Amazon

SALE Alert!!! Featuring H&M

Awesome Sale currently going on at one of my Fav stores-H&M! I decided to pay them a visit yesterday after hearing about their sale of an additional 50% off of already marked down prices.  I assumed [and ya'll know why one shouldn't ass-u-me] there wouldn't be much merchandise left but boy was I wrong! I racked up! Ya'll hear me?1? If I had more money I would have done more damage 0_o

BUT I do plan to find a little more change to go back this weekend *Cheese grin* If you have an H&M near you, go take a look; you just might find something you like!

Be on the lookout for a haul video featuring my items I picked up from H&M!

I'm unsure of how long the sale lasts!! :(

New Vids Up!!

Hey Loves-long time no see, eh! I know *pops self on hand* I've said I would improve on keeping this blog updated but have failed at doing so. I will TRY harder!! *sly look* lol.  I wanted to let you guys know that I have uploaded a few new videos on my youtube channel showing a few new styles that I have tried lately. Remember, I'm no hair stylist; I think it's fun to experiement with different styles and products to achieve different looks. I love variety! That's one thing that makes being natural so Fun! :)

Well make sure you stop by my channel, take a look and Subscribe! Be on the lookout I'm going to be having a few giveaways coming to my Youtube channel soon ^_~

Peace & Blessings Dolls!
