Hey baby cakes!! Before I get started, I want to first say that yesterday was my 30th Birthday!! Woot Woot…AARP here I come! Lol. It was a very chill day + my bf says that he has a surprise of some sort for me to celebrate my bday so we will see what happens! Also, Bday haul video coming soon!!
Moving right along….
February, the month of Black History + Love…Ermmm, why is this limited to a month? Shouldn’t Black History + Love be celebrated, studied, showed all year around or is that just me? *side eye*
Anyhoo, there are so many post I see on Facebook + comments I hear from people saying…”I better get this, or we better do that for Valentine’s day”. I’m sorry, but it’s just not that important to me! Is Valentine’s day going to feed, clothe, support + provide jobs for the needy? If not, then I’m not worried about it.
My bf + I have been together slightly over a year now + decided we will not celebrate Vday in the traditional way because we love each other + give each other things all year around. We also decided that we will have a tradition (started last year lol) where we get a bottle of wine, a huge platter of 7 layer dip, a bag of tortilla chips + watch an awesome movie! That’s bliss. No gifts, candy or anything Vday only based…A usual day!
The money that I would have spent, I can donate to an organization I support. I like this idea soooo much more! What do you guys think??
Until Next Time…
So, I know it’s been a long time since I said I would be blogging and posting on YouTube again but my life has been crazy busy!! Let me fill you in on the deets.
I just moved to a new apartment. I did have an apartment with my roommate but that wasn’t working so I moved out. Sometimes you just need your own space. Now that I’m in my new place, once I paint and get a few things, I can start making youtube videos again!! Yay!
I bought this pretty (and inexpensive ($1)) wrapping paper that I plan to use as my filming background. I am also working on purchasing lighting so I can do Makeup tutorials and fashion videos.
Here are a few pics of my apartment:
Right now that’s all I have. My bedroom is just storage space at the moment and the kitchen needs some cleaning and organization.
Another thing that has changed in my life is my boyfriend! I haven’t been in a relationship for a long time and I met him and well, things changed. He’s sweet, nerdy, a cutie pie and his name is Charlie. He’s so fun to be around so I’m really glad we met!
I’ve been working a lot lately and that’s not only my 8-5 gig but my business as well. I’ve been away from Chic n’ Black Styling for a while because I’m working on new endeavours for the company. I think the next step will be our accessories and lingerie line. It’s so exciting but so much work!! In the end though, it will all be worth it!
My regular job has been insane too and I’ve been going through a lot of changes there as well. I will update you guys soon on that information, it’s exciting stuff!!
Overall, life has been crazy but a huge blessing all at the same time. I definitely have been having some tough issues to deal with so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s life, not fair yet surprising! I’m excited to get back to blogging and making YouTube vids for everyone!! If you have any suggestions let me know and I will start working on the YouTube suggestions I received as well. I thank you guys for your support as always and can’t wait to be back!!
LOVE, PEACE AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS
Hey all! I wanted to do a quick review on one of the products I received via my Influenster Holiday Voxbox (check out http://www.influenster.com for more info on how to receive these boxes! No cost, No gimmicks!).
The product I will be reviewing is the Kiss Nail Dress Nail Strips. The strips are similar to the Minx nail trend where a polish “sticker” is applied + adhered to the nail using a top coat (I think I explained that correctly lol).
In the photo above, I am using the strip on my ring finger only as an accent nail. I really liked this + even though the package states that you do not need a top coat, I put one on anyway + my design lasted almost a full two weeks ( started to peel after about 10-11 days).
•Number of strips: 28
•Can be used for: Fingers + toes (just flip the strip upside down – shown below).
•Lasting Time: Package states 10 days
•Style Code:56703 – KDS05
So, all in all would I buy these? Absolutely! They last a long time, they look professional, their easy to appy, the cost is great + they come in a bunch if different designs! If you want to switch up your look and want a fabulous nail design w/o the Salon cost, I think this is the way to go!
Until next time….
LOVE, PEACE + SHOPPING RECEIPTS
So I decided to add something new to my blog. Tell me what you think??
NEW: Kai’s Fabulous Confessions:
1. Just because you’re beautiful does NOT mean you can get a man! It can be tough for anyone.
2. Sometimes I love the smell of mens frangrance and at times will dab it on my wrist, especially Prada.
3. You don’t need to be rich to be fabulous! It’s all how you present yourself.
4. Being a selfish brat is not at all sexy or fabulous….GET IT TOGETHER!! Here today gone tomorrow.
5. Don’t judge people for the situations they are in or for something they have gone through….you never know what may have started it!
6. Eat well and play, life is ours and we shouldn’t take things too seriously….
7. ….However there is no harm in being cautious. 😉
8. I love spoiling my family, friends, significant other (when I have one) and of course myself. Why not? Just make sure no one is taking advantage of you!
9.A kiss can bring a giant to his knees! True story!!
10. Fashion is my passion and accessories are my weakness….Gotta love them!!
