Hello Everyone

Today’s topic is skinny jeans. I personally am very picky when it comes to skinny jeans. As much as I love fashion I also love my comfort. For me a perfect pair of skinny jeans must have the following

  1. Stretch
  2. Fit
  3. High Rise (meaning Low Rise is a BIG NO for me)

Below is a look that I love since I’m wearing my favorite ripped skinny jeans by J Brand.

Hope you all enjoy..

I have a major obsession and it’s time to let you all know about!

I’m always wishing that my hair can be the same exact way as my hairdresser styles it at the salon.

In this mad pursuit I’ve tried many brands and products.

In the coming week I’ll be sharing some of my favorite products and tools for your perfect healthy hair.

Do you have wavy, curly or coarse hair?

Would you love your hair to be Sleek, Silky, Shiny, Straight?

If so then you must try It’s a 10 Miracle plus set. I’ve been using this product for the past four months and I must say I’m just amazed.

IMG_7340  Please keep in mind that you have to use the whole set together.

  • Miracle Shampoo Plus Keratin and Sulfate Free
  • Miracle Conditioner plus Keratin
  • Miracle Leave In Plus Keratin

After using the Shampoo and conditioner towel dry your hair, spay Miracle Leave In Plus Keratin and brush out. Then just blow dry your hair with a round bristle brush.









Below Are the links for Its A 10 and how to get it.
