My weekend: Learning to love myself (the hard way).

Hey y’all so sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been writing in my new blog Brooklyn’s Radio. I’m going to try to blog more I promise. 

So it all started on Friday …………….. I was dying my hair black with the help of my sister. I have really long thick hair so I use four boxes to cover my whole head. I had never died my hair black before only really dark brown. Everything went normal she died my hair and I washed all the dye out like I have before. I woke up on Saturday with my head itching but I didn’t think anything of it because it didn’t last very long. 

But later that day it all started, my ears swelled up , got red and itched like crazy! I was having an allergic reaction to the hair dye! I’d never had any type of reaction before but apparently black hair dye is a lot stronger than other colours and you are more likely to be allergic to it. The next day I had to buy itching cream for my ears and clarifying shampoo to get all the extra dye out of my hair. On Sunday I also started to get hives on my legs that made them itch like crazy!! Which is normal I learned when having a reaction to hair dye. 

I was so afraid I was going to lose all my hair or that I would have to cut it all off!! But after a lot of benadryl and Google searches it looks like I’m not going to lose my hair after all! It took me all weekend but I’m almost back to normal my ears aren’t swollen but they’re super dry now because of the dye that was on them and the hives are slowly going away on my legs. Now my just trying to wash all the extra dye out of my hair which is taking a few washes a day!

I’m thankful that it didn’t get any worse but I looks like I’m not dying my hair ever again. Because now I can start having a reaction every time I dye my hair no matter what colour. So be careful if you’re dying your hair at home! I advise is not to after what I went through because it could have been a lot worse. Now I must learn to love my natural self (I kinda don’t have a choice) and enjoy my back hair before my roots start to grow out and I start the long process of getting back to my natural hair colour! 

So my advice to you is God gave you that hair colour don’t change it! If you want to change your hair cut it or do those cool hair wraps with string! Or even get extensions but don’t put any more chemicals in your beautiful natural hair!

XOXO,

Boho, Indie, and Hippie. What the heck is the difference??

When it comes the fashion and style we hear three main names right now.Boho ,indie, and hippy ; this can get confusing for most people. And that’s because we tend to all lump them all together which is not surprising. To the untrained eye they all look the same but there are some big things that set them apart from each other……

Indie

Indie is sort of the “tomboy” out of all three. If boho and grunge had a baby that would be indie.You get a lot of the hardness with grunge. But with a softer side like baggy sweaters and flower print skirts. There is not a lot of bright colors when it comes to indie it’s filled with muted earth tones in some ways it kinda looks faded. 

Boho 

Boho stems from the 1970s free and easy way of living and dressing. If I had to describe it with one word it would be flowy.A lot of loose fitting goes with the flowy style in this one . Boho has a lot of light soft colors and a lot of jewelry mostly rings and chokers. In a lot of ways it’s very girly compared to indie.

Hippie

The hippie style has been around for a very long time. While some modern change has been made the roots are still there. One thing that will never leave is the bell bottoms! They will always be one of the biggest staples of the style alongside the tye dye and Navajo prints! And let’s not forget the long hair and the headbands!! 

I hopes this helps the next time you go shopping!!! Keep an eye out for new blogs on the way!!

Love,

Hello loves hope you are all doing well! I’m here with two ways you can wear a mini skirt!

Outfit #1 ♥Fabulously Casual♥
Here I have pared a Mini Skirt with an adorable Cold Shoulder Blouse that just screams spring! With the shoe I decided on a Sparry Top Sider boat shoe! I love all kinds of boat shoes because they give outfits that extra pop! I also pared a Straw Beach Tote to tie the hole thing together!

Outfit #2 Functionable and Fancy!
Here I have pared a Cami Top and dressed it up with an adorable Kimono ! I have chosen Strappy High heals because if you want to look dressy but not formal sandals are the way to go! And last but not least we have a Velvet Shoulder Bag to pull the look together!

I hope this has helped you with your fashion needs!

With Love,
Brooklyn
