Banner(s) Contest *OPEN*

Tick Tock
So its that time again, CONTEST TIME!!! I know that its been a while and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it, the prize is this awesome watch by Phosphor .
There are two of these babies up for grabs. The Phosphor Appear watch comes in a few different band colors: White (mine), Red (prize), Black, and Pink.

……………………………………………………
Driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski™ crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information. With each minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, to elegantly display the passing time, while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line.

The basic “time” mode features a 12-hour display, with the hours positioned above the minutes on the face. The watch face also offers a “seconds” mode and “off” mode, showing an entire face of crystals with no time display.

…………………………………………………………………….

This is what the watch looks like without the studio effects. Its also go a plastic film that is protecting the face of the clock from getting scratched. Ill leave it on there, and the winner can remove it.

I have been wearing this crystal-ed out wrist candy almost everyday since I got it in the mail. I don’t think I have ever received so many compliments on an accessory in my life. You can have one just like me…

I whip my hair back and forth

Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair…then dye it!

Yes, I finally did it! I got extensions for my hair. I have had extensions a while back, like 4 years ago, but the quality was never this great. I tweeted a couple of weeks ago about wanting to know what brand/line of extensions was the best and I received tons of feedback. Almost most of the replies mentioned FOXYLOCKS Extensions so I was very interested.
I was lucky to have been contacted by the very beautiful Imogen from FOXYLOCKS, and she sent me a set of 20” Clip-ins.
(10 tracks/pcs in a full set)

I have had my tracks sewn in before but it was so hard to keep up. Washing my hair was literally a pain in the neck. Also when removing them resulted in hair loss in the area the tacks were in.

I know that there is the glue method, it stinks and I didn’t like the fact that they will eventually slowly fall out. The glue reminds me of eyelash glue but with a stronger smell.

Clip-ins are the safest for your hair, and being able to take them out at night is the best!

There are many natural colors to choose from, and I was sent ‘Darkest Brown 2’. This would have been great if I didn’t dye my hair!
Here is the slight contrast below. Its subtle in this picture but was a huge difference in the natural light. I was dying my hair at almost midnight after Jude was tucked in, the only light I had was from my vanity.
Problema: My hair was too dark!
Solution: Dye it the same flippin color, same brand, box, everything!
I purchased the Garnier Nutrisse Hair Color in ’40 Dark Brown’ from CVS, $9.50 USD

Follow instructions labeled on box.

I lined my sink with a large plastic garbage bag to keep the area as clean as possible.

Starting with one track…the largest, I saturated the hair and continued the process to the others.

Depending on the brand of hair dye, you will need to let the hair set for 10 to 45 mins.

After the set time is up, rinse till the water is clear. Wash with shampoo and conditioner.

(Left dyed extension / Right w/o dye)

Dry and style as desired.

This finished look! My hair matches perfectly!

I am so happy with the results. I didn’t need extensions for length, but it did make my hair look a lot fuller when I put them in. I have tried so many different brands, synthetic to 100% human hair, and nothing compares!
