Knappy Hair Extensions Initial Install (feat. Kinky Coarse 18″ Clip-Ins)


HairExtensions Install

Hey guys!!

So I got the opportunity to try out some hair extensions from Knappy Hair Extensions. I’ve never used clip-ins before so I was excited to see how I would use these.

To start off this set came with 9 clip ins:

  • 4 – with 2 clips
  • 2 – with 3 clips
  • 2 – with 4 clips
  • 1 –  with 5 clips

The set also came with 2 additional clips you can sew-in, if additional support is needed, weft sealer (which I did seal the wefts) and care instructions.

I decided to use these clip-ins and install them all over my entire head, and have a little bit of leave out. and this worked out great. The style that I got was the Kinky Coarse 18″. Which was perfect. because it was just as long as my natural hair, so it was believable and not exaggerated, as you can see from the picture below.

 

Being that this is the first time I’ve used clip-ins, I was pleasantly surprised. If you want to see how I installed these clip ins, make sue to check our the video HERE.

Go check out these website for KRS Hair group: https://fbit.co/2ENl. They also offer wefts that you can sew-in, as well as closures, so you are bound to find something that suits what you are looking for.

Shielo Smoothing Anti Aging Scrub Review


Hey Guys!!

I’ve never to so excited about a skincare review…LOL But I am back with another quick review on the Shielo Smoothing Anti Again Scrub. I’ve used a lot of Shielo products over the years, they actually have my favorite moisturizer, which I did A review on back in 2014 (CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT REVIEW).

complexionscrub_2

Not this scrub did not disappoint AT ALL, and to be honest I didn’t expect it to. Shielo has always had great quality products. This anti-aging scrub is a clarifying exfoliant for all skin types (FYI, I have Oily Combination Skin). It has Aloe Vera Juice, which refreshes the skin. It also feature Jojoba Oil whcih contain fatty acid that revitalize skin using microspheres which are small and delicate. This is the main thing I look for in scrubs. I don’t like very large bead because they are too harsh and rough on my skin

This has quickly become my new favorite facial scrub to use before I apply makeup. It makes my skin very smooth and I feel refresh when I use it, which is the perfect condition for my skin when I want to apply makeup.

This Product retails for: $22.99

If you interested in trying this product out make sure you check out the Shielo website.

Glasses from GlassesShop.com


Hey guys!!!

So I am back with another quick review. Today I will be reviewing a site called GlassesShop.com. This site offers prescription eyeglasses. I picked up a pair of their  sunglasses. Which I LOVE!They offer several different styles and they are available for both men and women.

IMG_0194Retouch

This is a great site to get cheap glasses . The also have a big campaign going on right now where you can get your first pair free (Just pay for shipping & handling).

Also keep in mind you can also get prescription sunglasses. This was actually big plus for me, because before I got my PRK Surgery (Lasik), It was so expensive to get prescription lenses (or lenses in general), so I glad that there were inexpensive options for eyeglass and sunglasses. Fernando will definitely be taking advantage of this site.

IMG_0200Retouch

And you guys know I can’t leave you with out a coupon code. Use Coupon Code GSHOT50 and you can get 50%off on eyeglasses or sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames are excluded from coupon). That is a great DEAL!!!!

So that’s it guys! Make sure to go check out the site!  The have glasses for everyone and every style you can think of. Don’t forget to tell them who sent you!

KenChar Line Review


HEY GUYS!!! SO I am finally back with another review. I haven’t done a review on my blog in a long tim, but I am back and I am VERY excited about this review.

Today I will be reviewing a line from a line called KenChar. So Let’s Jump Right into it.

So let’s start with the Soy Candles!

Candles

This was the 1st thing I’ve ever purchase from them. They are 100% Natural. These are considered their candles. So they are great on go if you are looking for a something to take with you when traveling. They have a wide variety of scents and I tell you NO lie…they smell EXACTLY how the label says AND once it’s lit it smells exactly how it does in the tin. The fragrance can fill the entire room so you don’t need multiple candle to scent one space. These are my absolute favorite candles I’ve ever purchased. My Personal Favorites are: Strawberry & Southern Peach.

Body

 

I was sent A few of their body products, The Coconut Lime Hand Whipped Body Butter, Coconut Flakes Scrub and the Island Body Sunflower and Shea Body Cream. The Coconut Flake Scrub is AMAZING! It creates a really nice “milky” kinda of lather and make it really feel Spa like. It beads that they used are very fine, so it is very gentle on the skin. I’ve only used one other scrub in the past and this one is just so different in texture and the consistency is something I’ve never seen in a scrub before. This is definitely something I HIGHLY recommend.  The Coconut Lime Whipped Body Butter is amazing! I is very moisturizing and kept my skin smooth all day. It also gave my skin a nice little “glow,” which I was really surprised about, something different. I wasn’t a really body butter lover in the past because I felt they were just TOO greasy. BUT, this one wasn’t, it absorbed right into my skin without sticking out to my clothes. Another thing I want to mention is the Shea Scents pocket-sized butter tins (not pictured). These are great to carry in your bag to re-moisturize your hands or body. I also used this to add moisture to my hair as well. Lastly, The Island Body Sunflower & Shea Body Cream it is a lighter texture so it still moisturizes very well, but not over whelming. The scent is more of a floral, unlike the Coconut Lime, which is more or an herbal/fruity scent.

Now One to the most exciting things that I was scent….THE HAIR PRODUCTS!!! Now I have been buying KenChar candles for the past 2-3 years…and I NEVER knew they sold hair products.

Hair

First thing I tried was the Curly Roots Coconut Conditioning Cream. At first when I looked at it, I thought it was a styler of some sort. But, after reading the label It says I can use a regular rinse-out conditioner, a deep conditioner or even a leave-in. So I tried it out ALL 3 three ways, on 3 separate occasions. YES, this 3oz container got at least 3 good uses out of it. Personally, I preferred it as a leave-in or a rinse out conditioner. It worked OK as a deep conditioner, but I did doctor it up with some oils because I needed ALOT of moisture. But as a leave-in it left my hair super soft and left a really nice sheen to my hair. The Butter Curls Moisturizing Styling Butter was my favorite. I use as a styler for twists outs & braid outs. This stuff is amazing! The smell is nothing “special” like all the other ones, but it doesn’t smell bad at all. It performed really well and gave a great hold and really nice shine. My hair was soft fluffy and silky. Even when Fernando touched my hair I used this, he was like , “O, babe what you use, your hair feels really soft.” So this Styling is everything! LOL Lastly is the Curly Roots Conditioning Pomade is a really nice pomade I use to take down my twist/braids and I also used it to seal my ends. It not heavy and does not leave my hair feeling greasy so that is a PLUS!

 

Overall, I enjoyed the entire line. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve reviewed a line and have NOTHING negative to say. Everything performed better than expected and to top if off everything is competitively priced with everything else that is out there. And honestly why not spend that money on an ALL natural, black owned business line. Definitely check out their site at, www.kencharbody.com and click the sop tab! You will NOT be disappointed at all. And if you are ever at a Circle of Sisters Expo or anything like that check to see if she has a table, most of the time she probably will, but for sure at Circle of Sisters, which is by the way coming up October 2015.

I think I spent an half hour “Luv-ing” (that’s what the call it on Luvocracy). LOL…The best part is I can add it to a cart right on Luvocracy without having to go to their site! It’s like Pintrest with a Check Out cart…LOL But I really wanted to come and show you guys a few some things I really like from the line.

This Nin Jumpsuit is just simple and classic, and paired with the Kent Slip On and Sunnies makes it so My style. Simple, Chic & Casual.

Now how about some handbags I saw that I am loving.

HandBags

Both the Florent Backpack and the Half Moon Bag  are perfect for traveling, walking around the mall, or the in the city. With my hands free to carry all my shopping bags I won’t have to worry about my handbag weighing and slowing me down me down. You’All know how we get once we start shopping!

Did I mention that all these products I mentioned can be found on Luvocracy.com. Make sure you check out my Page too for more items that I am loving from The Dreslyn Line.
