Hunger Games and Checking in!

Hey all! I'm been away for quite some time. I've actually been on study leave these past 2 weeks, but for this entire week and some of last week I've been having internet issues. VERY FRUSTRATING!

I have been hoping to see the Hunger Games, and I still haven't :( . Things keep coming up everytime I want to go. But I have finally got the 2nd and 3rd books to read online, and I want to finish them before I finally watch it. Even if I end up watching it online. So even if I'm the last to see it, I'd still enjoy it all :).

Anyhow, just checking in to say I'm alive and doing well. How are all of you guys doing? Are exams around the corner for you as well? I wish you the best of luck! (I'm definitely gonna be needing it hahaha)

May the odds be ever in your favour...

Texlax Update! HAIR UPDATE #3

Hey all! I honestly got so busy I forgot I was to write about flat ironing my texlaxed hair in ... February. Yea I know, really late, but better late than never right? I actually should be studying right now, finals are in 2 weeks, but I really just needed a bit of a break.

Twist-outs from January
I texlaxed my hair back in January to try out a few things, and I haven't currently redone my hair, but that's ok because it looks the same way as when it was first textlaxed. I diluted the relaxer mix a lot so the my hair would still look natural, but would be a bit more manageable. One thing I really wanted to try out while texlaxed was the flat ironing ability of my hair.

So I tried it out one week in February, and let's just say it was a big fail for me. I blowdried my hair, and flat ironed it, hoping for some good results since I changed techniques, but to no avail. My ends were frizzy and it looked terrible. You could not even tell it had been flat ironed. It just looked like my hair was stretched out, which might have been nice had not for the smell of the flat iron.

I don't know if it's just my flat iron or my hair texture, but it appears that my hair will not be flat ironed straight any time soon, unless I use a stronger relaxer mix. I'm not really up to that tho, because I still like the versatility of the texlax at current and it's very hassle-free and looks natural. My twist-outs and braid-outs come off fabulous within one night and it's easy to wash and go. But I may have to rethink my current hair routine (or lack thereof) if I want to achieve the goals I have for my hair, where styling is concerned.

The thought of weaves and braids have crossed my mind plenty of times, since my hair just does not flat iron like it did when processed, and I think I will consider it further when I can. But until then, I'll be rocking it natural/texlax!

Bruk it down at KadUWIval 2012!

Hey all! Here are a couple photos from KadUWIval! Despite a few technical difficulties, It was one of the most fun things I've done this year. I enjoyed myself to the MAX!

I did my make up before the jump and amazingly it lasted all day as you will see with the last photo. The camera really is not showing just how bright it was hahaha.

I used the Coastal Scents palette I made last year, the Milani Liquif'eye black eyeliner, e.l.f essentials lipstick in Fantasy and the Revlon Just Bitten lipstain in Passion (to prolong the wear of the lipstick), as well as my Maybelline Fit Me foundation in 350 Caramel, N.Y.C. Sunny Bronzer and L.A. Colors blush in Cinnamon. I also wore some lashes, Miss Adoro #46. I think i may be getting a bit better at applying them too!

Anyway onto the pics!


Right after applying my make up :)

I was very happy that the make up turned out so well!
