So I needed to give my poor hair a break from the weekly iron-outs that I’m unabashedly addicted to, lol. Here’s the new look I’ll be parading around for the next 6-8 weeks. Hopefully it lasts!
Hiya y’all and happy new year! This look is actually from last Friday, but I wanted to get a post up. I wish I had a “real” photographer all the time so I could post more often…the struggle.
This casual look is totally for the home team-GO COLTS! It would be wonderful for our city to win again.
Jersey-The Colts Shop
Jeans-Miss Me via The Buckle
Shoes-Air Jordan 11’s
Usually on Fridays I dress completely casual-jeans, school sweat shirt, and tennis shoes casual. But today, I decided to kick it up a notch.
I paired black coated denim jeans with an orange pussy willow bow blouse. I added a camel colored blazer to prep it up. My camel and black bow pumps worked perfectly with the look I was going after.
I finished up with a few simple accessories: orange jewel earrings, a pretty rose gold rhinestone clustered choker, and a pearl bracelet.
Blouse and blazer: H&M
Jeans: The Limited
Heels: Macy’s (Jessica Simpson)
Choker: The Bauble Bar
Earrings: Macy’s (Guess)
So…I like to look haute as possible on date night, lol. It was cold out and I opted to wear pants. This Guess one piece was on clearance at Macy’s for $17 and was originally $100! The back is cut out which gives it a little pizazz. I’ve had the thigh high boots for a few years and have only worn them once.
I added some gold accessories,
And MAC’s Ruby Woo and was good to go!
I recently read in a magazine about a stylist who uses ReFresh dry shampoo between salon visits, and because she is Black, I was eager to see if it would work for me.
I sprayed it on thinking that it would saturate my hair, lol. No so. I probably sprayed too much because I wanted to have good results. But this initially left a powdery residue behind. I combed through it pretty well before wrapping it up.
The next day I was surprised that my normally oily hair wasn’t at all oily. My hair did feel heavy though and strangely clean.
I would only use this in a pinch because I noticed that it is very drying-which I’m assuming alcohol is a main ingredient. But then again, I might have sprayed too much.
I also picked up an old classic, Nozema, liquid soap which is supposed to moisture better than bar soap, and brownie bites vitamin. They taste like candy!
Today for brunch we stopped at Milktooth located in the newly renovated Fletcher Place on the southeast side of Indy.
The restaurant was originally a mechanic’s garage. The interior is eclectic yet quaint. Each table was adorned with empty cans of Cafe Bustelo used to house the silverware.
I ordered a Mexican coke, a corneal Dutch baby with peach-amaro jam, dried blueberries, and cream fraiche and a side of sorghum glazed bacon.
The pancake was good and was a nice size portion. The bacon, however, was another story. It resembled a large hunk of fat bathed in syrup. I was able to eat a small corner of it only. The rest of it was literally fat.
My friend ordered a Cappuccino that was very bitter and burnt tasting. She also had the Belgian waffle with apple slices, seasonal nuts, and creme fraiche that was tasty.
Overall I’d probably return. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. And the menu was original.
