My September 2016 Hair And Makeup Update
Hello lovelies! It is the middle of the week and I'm trying to keep a smile on my face since it is almost the weekend. Last week seemed to pass so quickly for me and this week is just dragging along. As I promised a couple of months ago I am trying to feature myself a little more on my blog so I can occasionally break out of my introverted shell and hopefully through this process I can connect more with my readers.
In July I wrote a post showcasing my natural hair (which is curly/kinky) and explained how I maintained it and featured some of the products I used to keep it as healthy as possible. You can read more about it (here). Today I'm showing you how I usually wear it when I straighten it out. The products I use is basically the same except I skip the step using mousse. The only thing I do differently styling wise is to blow dry it with the aid of my fingers (no comb) and afterwards I run a flat iron through it with the temperature set no higher than 325 degrees. Anything higher will burn and damage my hair.
As for my makeup I did do a little bit more than usual just for the sake of these pictures. Plus I figured you guys would like to see me wearing a different lipstick color than my usually vampy burgundy shade.

I am getting a little bit more used to showcasing myself on my blog and I was a lot more comfortable this time around compared to some of my previous attempts. I guess practice makes perfect but in all honesty I think it because I'm wearing my fashion security blanket which if you are regular reader of my blog then you know I am referring to my love of stripes.
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! Hopefully you have a relaxing and fun weekend. In the comments section below let me know if you have anything exciting planned.
