Tales from the Roots: Protective Styling- Crochet Braids




For the past 5 weeks I have had my hair tied away in Senegalese Twists. I know that style usually lasts a lot longer than 5 weeks but I rarely keep styles that long so I was ready to take them down! I mostly missed washing my scalp and running my fingers through my hair but I knew that I wasn't ready to deal with my hair on a daily basis again, sometimes a girl just needs a break! So I was searching Pintrest & YouTube for ideas and came across this video about Crochet Braids and decided to try it out

Work Friendly Makeup

   BB Your Self! 

  I really love makeup but like most of the women in the world I am not a magician with a makeup brush, nor do I have ample time to apply my makeup in the morning. On the weekends or before a night out it's nice to take my time applying foundation and dramatic eye liner but most of the time that I am wearing makeup I am on my way to work.
   
     I try to use the bare minimum products to create a beautiful and natural makeup look so I only use a few products and usually it only takes 5-7 minutes to apply my makeup. I know that might sound crazy but after you see what exactly it is that I do to my face every morning you will understand.

Ways to Wear it: Day to Night OOTD

 
     A girl on a budget needs to be able to work the versatility of her clothes. When I'm shopping I always try to envision my options with whatever piece I'm thinking about buying, be that shoes, a dress, a top or even jeans. I rarely buy anything that I will only be able to wear one way or once period. This not only saves money but also saves space when traveling. I bought this crop top from Forever 21 in preparation for my trip to Las Vegas which is where I am in the above pictures. It saved a lot of time when I was getting dressed to go out because I didn't have to change my whole outfit, it also saved space in my suitcase because I didn't need to pack another full outfit. If you want to learn how to dress up/down a crop top keep reading!
