Braids Part Duex! Plus an Outfit!

Happy Monday Readers!!

I was lazy this weekend and slacked on the posts but that doesn't mean I didn't take pictures (yay!) and I even followed through with a reader request and did a tutorial (yay again!) But first I must tell you of the Saturday Morning Drama! I live in a condo that consists of two high rises and at 5 am, the other building's fire alarm went off and the whole building was evacuated. I, of course, slept through this but I did wake around 6 am when hubs was leaving to go fishing. I looked out the window and there were seven fire trucks and tons of cops, and also all of the building's tenant/owners were sleeping on the pool deck in chairs or huddled by the parking lot. It turns out there was a fire on the 18th floor that was contained in that unit and put out with the fire sprinklers but still--crazy! That is the second fire in that building. The fire sprinklers did cause major water damage though and I guess there was little waterfalls in the elevator shafts so the elevators were shut off. There was also inches of water in the stairwells and lobby. No one was hurt but crazy nonetheless!

Then since I was up early anyways, I decided to go through with my braids tutorial. I tried to do the braids and take pictures and that was not that successful. Therefore I went ahead with my first VLOG! I hope you like it and if you are not to keen on the idea, just let me know----no hurt feelings. I love getting feedback from you guys!

As promised, he was the details on my makeup. For my eyeshadow, I used the 120 color palette.

After I did my tutorial, I decided to curl my hair. I didn't feel like doing anything productive around the house (i.e. laundry, cleanings, shopping for the week's groceries) so curling it was. I have super thick, heavy hair so the curls looked like this before I tousled them...

Then after a few hours, I got dressed to go out and the curls fell. I liked them but they just didn't look so "curled".

Last week, I posted about going to Ulta and getting some polish from the Shrek OPI collection. I trued the blue first instead of the purple, because I always wear the purple, and I love it!!

I love this polish! I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do---love love love!

I hope you all have a great Monday and I hope that this video works. Let me know what you think and I hope this week flies by!!!
