Did you notice it was a peplum belt? I love itttttttt (super versatile)
Peplum is very forgiving and you can't go wrong with it.
I wore it with my American apparel cropped top (previously worn HERE) to conceal the mid rib and it did just fine!
Top: American apparel HERE
skirt/shoes/necklace/belt: Zara (sold out)
Belt: sold out but similar (HERE)

My First Skydiving Experience/video

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend?
Last 2 weeks were amazing for me, it was my birthday week (thanks for the wonderful wishes) and I got to do a lot of things; 
I got to skydive for the first time ever and those of you on my facebook or instagram must have probably seen the pictures but you know it wouldn't be complete if I don't share it on my blog =) 

It was an awesome experience and YES!! I might try it again (I said might lol) 
I'm I crazy? NO lol
I told my dad about it and he said "absolute madness" hahaha
How did it feel? If you've ever been on a roller coaster ride, you can definitely do this, the whole jump took under 10mins (including the take off) so it was unbelievably amazing!
I would definitely encourage y'all to take risks and be adventurous but not too adventurous, If you decide to participate in such activity, be sure your dealing with a professional company not amateurs, if your in Houston, I jumped through Skydive Spaceland, great company, very professional and their customer service was very commendable
Overall I had a blast and I hope you enjoyed my little clip I made specially for you :)
just relax and everything will be fine

My Awesome instructor Ben!!! I had a blast :) thank you
Ofcourse I had to look hot before jumping lol just wear comfortable clothes 
By the time I was done, I looked like i got trapped in a swirling wind or tornadoe smh

All about my hair + video post

Hey Beautiful people!
This is a long due post and after my last blog post, I got more questions about my hair/hair extensions so here it is!

So I became a "Peruvian chick" and I'm not going back
Received this hair from a company called Leo Locks sometime in June, Its a UK based hair company that provides great quality and affordable hair of all types, I started rocking it July and since then, I've had it for 3 months non stop and it's been  amazing since then!

  • Gorgeous & affordable Virgin hair with amazing texture, I've been pleased with the quality of the hair and most of all pleased with their prices, I can't stand having to buy great hair but because it has the word "virgin" or "Peruvian" attached to it, then it will be higher than my phone bill for 6 months lol, so I am impressed with their prices.

  •  Looks even better after being washed; I think the best part of having the hair was washing it and seeing the waves form back afterwards into a very beautiful pattern. 

  • Low maintenance & Beautiful long lasting curls; it's ability to hold curls and styles with little or no product blew me away, I would literally curl my hair with flat iron/curling wand and it would last for DAYS. Also it is true to length.

  • No shedding and very minimal tangling; when I tell people I've used this hair for over 2 months, they find it hard to believe it doesn't shed!  Their wefts were super strong and it didn't even require sealing.

  • Top notch customer service; when dealing with most hair companies one of the problems I face is their lack of good customer service, late replies to emails and delayed shipping but I got no problem with them, my emails were replied on time and package received on time.

  • Very fast shipping (free delivery in the UK and cheap international rates); I received this hair in 3 days after my address was sent which was very fast for international delivery
Most of all the compliments :)


The only problem I've experienced with the hair is its dryness but I use creme of nature Argan oil quite frequently to help restore moisture to it. 

How the hair looks after washed
Peruvian Virgin hair
14"24",26",28"-- wavy
Hair in its natural state
Curled using a curling iron
Peruvian virgin hair--wavy 
14", 24",26"

I always  braid the hair in a single braid before I go to sleep, it helps to keep the curls. Wrapping is a great alternative but too much work for me.

I wash the hair every 1-2 weeks with Motion's neutralizing shampoo and Organix argan oil conditioner.

Always Brushed the hair using a paddle brush and I used Creme of nature Argan oil for daily moisture and shine.

Blazer:ebay (similar HERE), Shirt & shoes : Zara Pants: lulus (HERE) ring: gift , MK watch, thrifted earrings
I had to represent our colors (green & white) its just me simply showing a part of my patriotism smh; I love this pants, they are so comfortable and I wish i got them in a size small because they are a little loose for me, so if you order it, go a size smaller because the material is very forgiving

After thinking I had bad-luck at winning give aways (God knows how many I've entered), I won my first giveaway from Alamode's blog so S/O to her for hooking me up with the bracelets :) Photobucket

I'm taking a break from my extensions until my birthday *smiles* so I've been trying to rock/ experiment different styles.  I will still be answering questions regarding my previous hair and post it here. Photobucket

On the bright side, I have more posts coming up and videos (no jokes this time) my eyebrow tutorial video will be up next so make sure you check back.
S/o to freda flow for the wonderful pictures
Lots and lots of love from me to you!!!!
Have a wonderful day
