Oh flat irons. So many choices and so little knowledge on what to choose. Before buying a flat iron most of us want to know what we’re buying and if it’s “the one” that everyone else has or wants to have. No one wants to waste their money and knowing that a flat iron works on your type of hair makes the process of picking out one easier. So which one should you buy? It depends on your natural hair texture. If you have fine, kinky hair your needs will be different than someone with coarse, wavy hair so that means your “the one” should be a perfect match for your hair. [Read more…]
If you’ve been on the fence about trying nail art, maybe you’ll want to start rethinking that and work on stepping up your manicure game after hearing us out. Nail art has come a long way even in the last few years. It has been remixed and long gone are the days of gaudy, over-the-top nails that are not only impractical but super high maintenance. Coupled with gel coats that last for two weeks, nail art has been redefined. Anyone can appreciate a beautiful, glossy and classic Lincoln Park After Dark or Ballet Slippers set of nails, there is no denying that.

At first glace, in the tube, blue lipstick is easily ignored. Easily labeled gothic or “for crazy millennial kids who still shop at Hot Topic.” It’s not something a girl who fancies her classic reds and pinks and perfectly hued nudes who normally fall for. But we think blue lipstick is one of the bad boys of lip color. Not a true gothic color like black and not exactly safe enough like purple hues, blue is unforgiving in its aesthetic and calls for attention unrelentingly which is why blue lipstick on dark skin is a must. Let us explain why. [Read more…]
Shakespeare once said, “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.” We like to say that love can be conveyed with smokey eyes. That might not be on William’s level of verbal expression, but hey, that quote couple with these beautiful photos of Nikia are close enough. Are we right or or we right? [Read more…]
There are few Instagram accounts that can make us spend Pinterest type time wandering down into the depths of images that go way back. We’re talking way, way back. Weeks and weeks and more back. Loza Maléombho’s account is one of those few. If you’re not familiar with the Abidjan-based designer and amazing creative behind her womenswear label that carries her namesake, we suggest that you take these next few minutes to hammer her name into your memory. And her creative selfies. And her clothes. And these bad ass sandals. Once you’re not distracted by her textile allure, return to her #AlienEdit series. Look at them and be inspired because, life.

Yes, Valentine’s Day has come and gone but love is still in the air. I have to admit that Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite times of the year. Love is such a power thing when expressed in the right way. Love can be shown and exemplified in such creative ways and that’s what makes it so amazing. When you love what you do, or you love everything about life it will show in more ways the one. [Read more…]
