Hello Lovely Ladies,
So, this is my first attempt to actually update my blog on a regular basis. So in late October early November (I'm not quite sure of the exact date), I performed my BIG CHOP! For those of you who don't know, that means that I cut all of the relaxed ends of my hair off! This was an attempt and commitment to my natural hair journey and to reach bra length with my natural hair. So, since the BC I've been wearing my hair in protective styles underneath self-made wig. I'm really happy with my choice of doing the BC, because now I get to learn the real texture of my hair and my curl pattern.
Since I'm not quite sure of my exact date, I have decided to document length checks of my hair growth on the 29th of each month. So, to the right is my first documented length check on November 29tth, 2010. As you can see, most of the length is on top and around the sides. The back is a little shorter, but I hope through my journey I can improve on this. I have seen some growth since this picture was taken, which is making me very optimistic about my journey. I will be back in a few days to update on my next length check. Until then, stay beautiful.

so, i recently posted a pink, brown, and black makeup tutorial on my youtube channel. and to sound crazy the inspiration for this look was this hot pink clip that i always have in my hair. this look is really easy to recreate, and its great for clubbing. so to achieve this look you'll need:
- coastal scents 88 eyeshadow palette
- elf liquid eye primer
- mark. scandalash mascara in black lash
- mark. on the edge liquid eyeliner in cleo
so if you get a chance check out my youtube channel to see how i applied the colors in the palette. i really wanted this look to be very vibrant and i wanted the pink to really stand out. you can definaely add lashes to the look to give it a more sexxed up appeal. =) ok so here's a picture of the look.
oh and go watch the video

I just want to do a short post, just to tell you guys that I started selling mark. If you don't know mark. is a brand that stemmed from Avon with a hot more fresh look. It sells just about everything from makeup to fashion. I was in awe when I saw the store for the first time. So if you don't mind, whenever youre not busy you can take a look at my mark. store and see what you like http://nicolesmith.mymarkstore.com/ .

so I just put up another video on YouTube and this was an updated foundation routine just kind of another way that i put on my makeup. the products that I used in this video were:
- Revlon ColorStay Foundation (Combination/Oily) in Toast
- MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW35
- ELF High Definition Powder
- MAC Blush in Format
I used all of these products then, I use Fix+ and a brown/black combination of eyeshadow to fill in my brows. I set my eyes with a clear mascara from Bonnebell. For my every day eyeshadow routine, I use almay bright eyes to act as a primer then NYX shadow pencil in milk to act as a base. I then use a combination of neutral shadows from my beloved coastal scents 88 matte eyeshadow palette. I then finish my look off with l'oreal hip color truth creme liner in black and pulse perfection mascara from maybelline. On my lips i used revlon matte lipstick in mauve it over. I love this lipstick because it hydrates y lips and adds color at the same time. the color of this lipstick is close to my lips but acts as a nude lipstick at the same time. I LOVE IT!! if you have a darker skin tone and want to use a nude i suggest this lipstick from revlon, you'll love it.
also, in the video, I briefly touch on my skin care routine. first, i use neutrogena rapid clear foaming cleanser. then i use the fight and fade 2 in 1 toner all over this really tones my face and make the appearance of blemishes diminish. the toner has sylic acid inside which really helps control the oil on my greesy face =D. then i finish with a moisturizing lotion from cetaphil that i rub on my entire face. this acts as a moisturizer for me and primes my face for foundation.
hope you enjoy
