Hair is FUN!

I am probably the most anti-natural person you will ever meet. I say this because so many females who are natural comes off as bullies. It blows my mind how they judge other females who decides to perm their hair. No! Us "other" black women are not trying to be like white women, we just want to be able to get up and go in the morning. Anyone who has a bit of melanin inside of them, knows how hard it can be to take care of our hair. Yes, it is doable but most of the time its not easy. 

This was actually the main reason why I didn't want to be natural. I didn't want to be in the same category as the women who declares it a sin to add a little chemical into your OWN hair. But this is not about them. This is about my hair. I don't care for permed or relaxed hair. I just care for healthy hair, BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU. I've had healthy relaxed hair, which was damaged because I didn't take care of it. So I decided to chop it off and try again. This is my do over and I choose to do it this way. If I decide to relax it again, it will be healthy, it will be my choice and I will be happy about it. 

One more thing.IT'S NOT THAT SERIOUS, HAVE FUN WITH YOUR HAIR because in the words of Tracee Ellis Ross "HAIR IS FUN!"

Jumpsuit and Curls

Curls were achieved with Remington Wand, which took hours cause this hair is like 4 packs of hair!
     Green has never been my color and will probably never be, but I fell in love with this jumpsuit from Zara. Actually fell in love is an understatement, I literally ran all the way to New York to get this jumpsuit because there's no Zara in Ohio(*Sigh) and it was sold out online. Anyways... Its outfits like this that makes me hate being short because they dominate me BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU, I swear I can pull off not wearing any shoes and no one would notice (I am wearing shoes though) lol.

It was an interesting weekend. Went to a wedding....AGAIN lol. It seriously is wedding season because everywhere I go there's a new invitation to a wedding. No complaints though because if its one thing I love, its weddings.   After that, I went to a lounge party for a friend and then I went to a radio launch event, all in one night. I chose an outfit that I knew would be appropriate for every event. Like I said it was an interesting night to say the least. Hope you guys have a lovely week. Until next time bloggers and viewers *XOXOXO*.

Lately, I've been wearing a lot of blacks but I always add a little piece of yummy color to it.  To me wearing a pop of color to an all white, all black or a mix of both makes your outfit stand out more than it already does, BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU.

Anyways.. I have worn these two items separately but have never worn them together because the 20's skirt is  really dressy and the t-shit is so casual. I was skeptical about wearing them together, but who says you can't add a dressy item with a casual item? Definitely not I, to me it can still looks elegant just depends on how you wear it.  Don't be afraid to mix things together, you will be surprised what actually works well together.

How to: Socks

Previously, solid colored socks were mainly worn such as navy, dark blue, gray. This was because those colors gave more of a clean look.  Now, times have changes were as in men transformed the standards by adding a little flavor.  Wearing socks has become its own statement through argyle prints, pinstripe, stripe designs, etc.  


It is becoming a fashion statement especially in an office setting because lets face it, business causal can be boring. Socks is one of the ways a man can show his style.  Not to mention, socks tend to be an essential piece in completing a business casual outfit.  As they say, its all in the socks because as your slacks rise thereby showing your socks, your style is revealed, BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU.

A touch of Floral

Ohio weather is super weird. It was gloomy but 72 degrees so I decided to bring my trench just in case the weather decides to feel the way it looks. 

Its always good to shop in your closet. Instead of going out to find something new, thereby adding to the many things you do not wear,  you can actually wear something you already have. I got this shoe approximately two years ago and I only wore it once. Never really been a fan of floral but for some reason I thought I would put them on today. In my opinion it added a little spice and brought this outfit to life, BUT THAT'S JUST TUTU. Shop in your closet and see what you come up with.
Blouse: I wanna say H&M ( but I really have no idea)

Shoes: Aldos
Trench: H&M

Weddings, Birthdays and Things

Good afternoon Blog world. I have been away for far too long. School was kicking my behind but all is well, I am back and so inspired.

This weekend, I was blessed to attend a friends wedding and a birthday party all in one night. And if you know Nigerians, you know that we do it BIG, maybe a little too big sometimes lol. It was an amazing wedding and the bride looked so happy! Then I party hopped to the birthday party which my parents were attending so I definitely snapped a few too many pictures with those cool kids.

The lovely couple
