 Everyone knows I'm  a weave hair wearing girl, and I love going to the hair salon. However those times when I can't hit the salon, and I have an event to go to, I have to grab my go-to products that I know will get the job done. Usually I don't like trying new products unless a friend recommends them, but I found out about Parnevu one day when I needed some cream hair dress for my   edges, which are the messiest as you all know with weaves. I wanted something that would give my hair control without the damp wet look of most other creams. I walked into my beauty supply store looking through tons of products to choose from, but I wanted to try something new, and right then and there I found magic. Even though I wanted a cream check out the amazing products I picked up by this brand of hair care. It left my hair shiny, no flaking, and just enough moisture for my long days. Try something new, that serves all purposes for our hair. Parnevu!!

FULL COVER CONCEALOR- This has a great finish for under eyes

Yeah, for most of us we are dealing with the horrible reality that we are getting older and we can't stay up all night and not suffer the repercussions. We are battling dark circles, tiredness with lack of sleep, and sometimes even wrinkles. One thing I know for sure nobody thinks circles are a good thing so here's some tips on how to combat those woes.

  • 1. Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.
  • 2. Yoga can also help you to get rid of dark circles. Do pranayam for at least 5 minutes everyday.
  • 3. Massage dark circles with any cold cream before going to bed at least for 15 minutes.
  • 4. Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice.
  • 5. Dip cotton balls in rose water or chilled water and keep it over the darker areas for 5-10 minutes.
  • 6. Almond oil is the excellent skin food. Massage under and around the eyes with almond oil daily for 2 weeks.
  • 7. Apply moisturizers with natural ingredients such as avocado oil, sesame, vitamin K and Vitamin E.
  • 8. Apply a paste of powdered almonds and milk under the eyes.
  • 9. Slurp this juice to get rid of those tainted circles. Drink tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice and salt.
  • 10. Eat food with rich vitamins and iron. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  • 11. Use sunglasses while out in the sun to protect your eyes from the harmful rays.
  • 12. Cut some fresh figs in half and place them under the eyes. Keep them there for 15 to 30 minutes and rinse it with warm water.

Even though, I love giving you all my favorite L.Y.P beauty favorites, I couldn't help but update you this month on a horrifying story I read in Essence magazine. Sometimes the price we pay for beauty can be too much. Before we decide to do anything to our bodies ladies, let's do some research and please don't let it be boot-leg, I mean it's your body, and your health. You cannot fix that if you play with it. Read below for the grippling story!!

"Teased by her family and friends about her flat "pancake" booty, Apryl Michelle Brown had always been insecure about her backside. Once she got enough money, she told herself, she'd buy herself a better one. "I didn't know if I wanted to look like Janet Jackson or J. Lo," the Los Angeles cosmetologist, 46, says in an exclusive interview featured in the November issue of ESSENCE magazine. "I just wanted a new, bigger booty."

Tragically, her quest for curves cost her all her limbs and almost her life.
In 2004, Brown says she paid a "pumper," an unlicensed person, to inject industrial-grade silicone into her buttocks. Brown can't recall how much the woman actually charged — maybe $500, maybe $1,000 — but over time, she says, the area became intensely irritated and painful, and the skin blackened. By early 2006 she says the silicone had hardened, causing severe pain and infection, ultimately requiring her to have lifesaving amputation of her limbs last year.
Now adjusting to her new life with prosthetics, Brown shares her story — and her warning for others tempted to check out "pumping parties" — with writer Amy Elisa Keith in ESSENCE. "I was left here for a purpose," she says. "I have to get the word out so that nobody else makes this choice."

Black Opal, the leading cosmetics brand for people of color partnered with emerging designer Samantha Black to present the 2013 S/S runway collection. Celebrity make-up artist and Black Opal Artistic Director Frank Guyton served as the key make-up artist creating a retro look with a fresh and new twist.

Designer Samantha Black's inspiration -
"My inspiration for this collection started off with simple SOHO brunch. Back in the day women used to dressed up.They were classy and feminine. Today, brunch is more of a scene, funky, sassy and very fashionable.  My collection is a mixture of both, colliding vintage fashion with a modern twist; while remaining very feminine, sassy and innovative."

I have to admit, this is always a headache of mine. I go and get a manicure on Wednesday, by Monday I'm hiding my nails. My polish is off, and my nails are all broken. LOL. Hellobeautiful comes up with a simple way to keep them going....
Here’s a quick tip to protect your manicure:
1. Apply topcoat daily. It is the number-one way to ensure your manicure lasts.
2. Sweep on a protective topcoat daily to increase your nail polish’s staying power.

Is Rihanna not fit to be an image for Nivea brand. Face wise she's a hit, but yesterday the brand made an announcement that she may not quite fit the image they are. Nivea stands for trust, family and reliability unfortunately they couldn't figure out how to join the two, and have them make sense. I mean Rihanna is our modern day rock-star, what were they expecting prom dresses? Maybe Rihanna should keep her image behind closed doors and she'll have a better chance of having a brand, that consistently uses her as a viable asset to their companies.

Tired of that cakey lip with MAC lip glasses, well here's a solution. MAC has produced a lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M∙A∙C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Applies with a doe-foot applicator. Use as a top layer to its namesake Lipstick or on its own. So the next time you talking to that special someone, and you are worried about that cakey white residue, remember MAC offers options...

Are make up brushes the new "haves". According to many make up professionals yes it is.. It really plays a part in what foundation, powder, and even an eye shadow can do. According to Hello Beautiful: A quality set of makeup brushes is the equivalent to that designer bag or Christian Louboutin pumps you own because they first make you feel good, but also because they’re investment purchases that’ll last well into the future. So the next time, you snag that new powder or foundation find out what is the best way of applying and it will really affect what happens with your canvas.


 New Foundation technology using translucent pigments to enable a fully personalized finish influenced by the subtleties of your own skin's undertone. Moisturizing demi-matte finish with line-reducing soft-focus powders. Medium buildable coverage offering broad spectrum SPF 15 protection. Try it!

Not that I condone this, but I do remember me trying this with a hair pin at home.  There’s a new product on the market—the HDE Nose Up Bridge Straightening Beauty Clip.  This #1 bestselling product in Japan requires users to wear this clip for a minimum of 15 minutes a day all for a whopping $5.  Of course at the time I didn’t realize I was succombuing to our American beauty standards, but for those who feel they hate their nose like I did, it’s worth a try, than getting a nose job.;



KIM KIMBLE HOOKS US UP WITH SOME HAIR TIPS! interviewed Kim Kimble Kim  the owner of Kimble Hair Studio in West Hollywood and reality TV star of WeTV’s “L.A. Hair”. We couldn’t discuss full details about her new salon, but she did offer some insight into the craziness of being a salon owner and great summer hair dos and dont’s. Kimble who has been a salon owner for over 10 years, revealed that “L.A. Hair” allowed her to see what really goes on at the salon when she’s not present. She was surprised by many of the antics of China, the salon manager. But said it’s a part of the business.

Peep some of Kimble’s hair tips:
  1. If you wear a weave, don’t get it re-done too often without giving your hair a rest in between.
  2. Be realistic, find the right texture and color to blend with your hair.
  3. Don’t leave a weave in for longer than 3 months.
  4. Wash your hair regularly, once a week.
  5. If you do an ombre, get it done right. Ombre should be a gradient effect of color lightening.

Facial Scrubs: The Basics Of Exfoliating

Facial scrubs are beneficial to you for many reasons:

1. They remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, they help to unclog pores, they stimulate blood flow which is more prevalent in mechanical exfoliation (the physical rubbing of dead skin off also known as gommage).

2. They promote the growth of new skin cells (cell turnover)
3. They make your skin look brighter and feel smoother.

Thursday night, Bria Murphy launched Dark and Lovely's "6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum" at Studio Arte in New York City.  Bria's been making her mula from the creamy crack company for over a year.  Product looks like it will do wonders for hair.

I really love this product. I learned about it on when I was looking to get a better wear out of my curly weave, that I tried with synthetic hair. Normally doing weaves is a no-no with synthetic hair, but this product actually gives you a bang for your buck. It really accentuates curles, and gives you a nice shine after a wash...
