Black For Spring & A Little Magic!



Black for Spring?  I say yes!  Spring is all about floral and bright colors, but sometimes you need a little shade. 
 
22 is my favorite number! 
 
 
 
 
 
Top: H & M
Skirt: Target
Belt: Wet Seal (similar)
Leopard flats: Rainbow Shops
Handbag: Galian Handbags
Necklace: Charming Charlie
 
 
Now a little MAGIC!  As you all know I attended an event with Miss Jessie's and Birchbox last week.  I was able to take their latest product for review.  Transitioners Magic!  Magic it is!  Here is a before picture of my curls.  I just used a little conditioner and a curl cream.  As you can see here my curls were undefined and dry. 
 
 
Transitioners Magic defined my curls and even curled my unruly ends!  I didn't even diffuse my hair and my curls were poppin!  If your anything like me and have heat damage or any kind of damage on your curls, Transitioners Magic is a must try! 
 
 
Loving my hair!  Thank you Birchbox & Miss Jessie's!
 
TGIT!

Miss Jessie's & Birchbox

 
Curls, curls, curls!  Last night I attended a Birchbloggers only event with Miss Jessie's.  It was so much fun!  The salon is located in Soho, NYC and the space is bright and beautiful!
 
We enjoyed champagne, mini cupcakes, and learning about Miss Jessie's products and how to use them.  Miko Branch, Co-Founder of  Miss Jessie's showed us the proper way to diffuse your hair and a bunch of other cool tricks in a live demo.  Just to give you a little info on Miss Jessies....
 
For over 20 years, Miss Jessie's has been caring for natural hair and natural curly hair using their styling crèmes, moisturizers and deep conditioning treatments. The Salon soon became the go-to place for natural and naturally curly hair attracting clients nationwide.
 
Birchbox sent me the Pillow Soft Curls a few months ago and It was silky smooth and non greasy.  Their newest product is Transitioners Magic!   This innovative and phthalate-free hair elixir will moisturize your new natural growth, revive and coat your relaxed hair as well fight frizz and prevent curl shrinkage.  Why does it work? Transitioner’s Magic is a unique potion that acts as a styler and a leave-in conditioner.

Happy Monday dolls!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  As usual their always too short.  It was a super rainy weekend here in NJ.  Just sharing one of my easy rainy day outfits with you.  My rainy day essentials have to be my rain booties and my bubble umbrella.  I was on the hunt for this umbrella for a while.  I was so happy to find it at Target.  
 
I wish I had a better picture of my fabulous Kate Spade Crossbody.  I won it on a giveaway and this weekend was the first time I wore it.  Its sooo pretty and the leather is buttery soft.  I'm sure I'll wear it again soon. 
 
 
Have a happy day sweets!
