Style Crush: Jourdan Dunn

Sorry for the lack of posts last week! I was extremely sick and bed ridden for a couple days. =[

Anyways, I feel a lot better now and ready to get back in the habit. Today’s post is about one of my style crushes, Jourdan Dunn.
 Are y’all following her on Instagram, because if not you need to hit that follow button right now! (@officialjdunn)

She just has so much swag. I love when models have a bomb sense of style when their off duty, even though they look gorg regardless.
Her style has actually inspired one of my previous posts..I saw a top she had on and just had to get it!
Hope you guys are feelin Jourdan as much as I am!

Beauty Diaries: Box Braids

I couldn’t let the month of April go by without a post dedicated to my beauty diaries! Today’s topic: box braids. Now I know, I know…I’m  hella late to the game but it’s only because I have literally gone my entire life wearing braids. 

I didn’t get my first partial weave until I was 18 and didn’t start wearing them regularly till I was about 20. So I was kinda over braids…however lately, I have been wanting a hairstyle that allows me to just get up and go…and braids let me do just that. 
For inspiration I looked to celebs, tumblr and pinterest to see how I wanted mine to look. 

I also didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I took a stab at it myself.
This is how they turned out..can’t wait to try out the numerous box braid styles and tutorials! 

Sunshine & Good Eats

Wore this cute lil number on a week-day dinner date with my sissy at Benihana. Anytime where theres good discussion and lots of food is a great time to me!  Note to my future bf: keep me full and make me laugh and everything will be all gravy! ha!
The weather looked more gorgeous than it actually was. Extreme winds are not good for my weave!
