Splurge vs. Save

                                 One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine 

Do not get me wrong! I love expensive bags and shoes as much as the next fashionista, but sometimes it is just not in the budget to spend an exorbitant amount of money on frivolous items. No worries because I have rounded up some stylish money savers that look just like the real thing.

Natural Hair Must Haves

Transitioning to natural hair can be hard and time consuming, especially considering the texture of hair you have. So I have compiled a couple of things that all naturals need to have healthy hair.
What I have learned during my transition period is to make sure you have the right products and that your hair is always moisturizer to combact breakage. I like to use this here, to add moisture to my hair daily. I also use a nutrient dense conditioner as a moisturizer, meaning I add it into my wet hair and do not rise it out. A good conditioner is one of the best investments a natural girl can make. Two of my favorites are here and here.

When washing your hair using conditioner is best to cleanse because it doesn't lather and strip your hair of its natural oils. My favorite conditioner to co-wash is this one here, because it has a lot of slip. Meaning that the conditioner makes it easier to comb or brush through your hair and detangle it. The brush I use to detangle can be found here and the comb here.

Some key items you want to added to your list of products is a blow dryer with a diffuser (here), a good gel if you want to wear your hair curly. I like this one. Bobby pins (here) are a naturals girls number 2 best friend. I honestly don't know what I would do some days without them. The last three things that you should definitely have are coconut oil (here) to seal your hair, and ponytail holders (here) and headbands (found here) to pull back you hair for easy styles.

If you are transitioning your hair you may want to think about protective styles such as braids or a sew-in. This helps with breakage.

A Little Bit of Color

Skirt (similar, similar) | Shirt (Similar) | Belt (similar) | Wedges | Jewelry (Earrings, Watch, Necklace

Sometimes I just like a lot of color. I am not scared to experiment with color or patterns when it comes to clothing. I think it adds a little personal style when you mix and match.
