Baby Makes four

Only-baby-expiring

 

My husband and I are so excited that our family is going to be growing. Of course one of the many questions will be: “how far along are you?” to be honest I want to keep that to myself. The reason being is because there is a stigma that comes with people announcing before the first trimester is up.

After you have had a miscarriage and dealt with three years of trying to conceive you realize that once you see the positive on the pregnancy test it’s hard to keep in that excitement. I will say that I am still in my first trimester and morning sickness is KICKING MY BOOTY lol.

Just like with raising a child there is more than one way to announce your pregnancy and that includes what timeframe you will do it in as well. Of course I pray that all goes well with my pregnancy however, if it doesn’t I want you guys to know why I would be grieving. I want my child to be real. Sharing with you my excitement makes it real to me.

I can’t wait to find out gender and of course see what baby looks like.

Six ways to tie a Hair Wrap/Turban

I am a HUGE fan of wearing hair wraps. There are numerous ways that you can rock one.

Wearing Rekolte from Fanm Djanm

I love to use cotton ones because they are great for elaborate looking wraps. Don’t be intimidated, the wrapping part is pretty simple. It just takes a bit of practice.

Now my curly ladies, just remember that if you plan on wearing wraps for an extended period of time(more than a day) or you have hair that easily breaks off. You can wear a silk bonnet underneath the wrap to protect your strands.

Here is a tutorial I made to help you with SIX ways to rock a wrap :)

Coloured Raine Review

I have always loved bright colors. The brighter the better but when it comes to my lipstick I have always been a pink,purple,nude and red type of girl. I have always wanted to step outside the box but never had the nerve to do so.

I came across this company called Coloured Raine and as  I was perusing the cosmetics, I saw some of the brightest “out of the box” colors I have seen. I decided to just take the plunge and I ordered three liquid lipsticks and one normal lipstick.

As soon as I received them I immediately put on a color that I would have never even thought of trying before.

Wearing Emerald Raine

I absolutely loved the green!

Here are my thoughts and the other colors that I purchased.

Whitney: Let’s Talk about it

lifetimeswhitneymovieposterartworkIf you are like me then you have been wondering how Lifetime was going to portray Whitney. I was onboard when I heard that Angela Bassett was directing and Yaya Decosta was playing Whitney herself(I have loved her since american next top model) Now after Lifetime did Aaliyah dirty I was a little nervous about what I was going to see.

So I decided to have a seat for the next two hours to check out if this movie would live up to the hype.As the movie started it was how Whitney met her future husband Bobby Brown. I felt that it painted Whitney as this crazy coke addict and Bobby was the innocent boy that was seduced by her. As the movie played on we can see how their love/addiction to each other played out.

Whitney-Robyn.0

Whitney seeing Bobby Perform at the Soul Train Awards(lifetime)

R&B singer Deborah Cox is singing all of the songs and Yaya is lip syncing to them. I have to say that I really wish that they would have used Whiney’s voice or find someone that was close to her voice, which is impossible because it’s WHITNEY FREAKING HOUSTON. But Deborah Cox did give her all in the voice performance. Especially her rendition of the famous I will always love you. Yaya slayed the lip syncing she was giving us Whitney all the way! very good performance.

Let us talk WIGS. This movie had no shortage of them at all and I was here for ALL OF THEM.Even though they were a HOT mess I lived for them because back in the 80’s and 90’s we all were rocking them lol

imrs

whitney-lifetimeIn all honesty  I think that they movie should have been called BOBBY. It seemed like it was written from HIS point of view and really didn’t focus to much on Whitney’s life and legacy. Also the interview with Mr. Brown following the movie was crass in my opinion. Why would you only want his point of view on their life? I have to say that the movie was a tad slow and downright boring in some places. There was SO MUCH missing and left me wanting to see more of her life story. Rumor has it that there will be a film made to dipuct the rest of Mrs. Houston’s life. Kuddos to lifetime for at least holding my attention for 2 hours but I can’t say that I would watch this movie on repeat. I will however download a song or two
