In randomness…

I’ve been on a bit of a shopping fix since Christmas. I got an apple watch on sale, then after a day of owning it, I realized 1) I had no where in my small room to charge it properly, and 2) that plastic band it comes with, while nice, was completely not my style.

So… Wish.com it is. I mean it’s not like I needed it urgently; I could wait, and as long as Wish didn’t lose my products in the mail I could wait a month.

Well one of them arrived (the other, a leather watch strap, is still sitting in a sorting centre somewhere in British Colombia) and surprisingly it fit perfectly with where I wanted to put it.

Hey, don’t judge my dusty window ledge. 😉

Another item that I randomly picked up was a travel battery/portable 64GB cloud storage from TSC.ca. Yes, I need storage for my many, many photos. I take a lot of photos because of my job and because I love it so this was a nice random find that fit into my daily needs.

Last but not least… The Slap Hat from GraceEleyae.com.

For ethnic girls like me, you didn’t even know you needed this until they advertised it. I bought a simple black hat on a bogo sale and I am so happy with it. Now I can go to work and keep my head warm and moisturized without a care in the world.

Having a bad hair day? No prob! Shove it in the hat and go! Couple days until your hair gets relaxed, but not wanting to look like a bucktee in these streets? No prob! Shove it in the hat. Shoot, I don’t even need hair ties. Gave the other one to my sister for the same reason. I’m trying to keep my hair game strong in 2019.

The last thing I want is to gut my room and redecorate. I’ve had the same desk since 2001 and it’s outlived it’s usefulness. I’ve also got a small room with grown-up over-clutter. I got hit with a bite from the cleaning bug when I watched “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” on Netflix, and now I’ve been obsessing with the idea of a major overhaul of my room’s style.

I feel like my small room needs more storage to put some things away out of sight, like make-up and paperwork.

Well that’s it for my random events and thoughts update. Since I didn’t get a chance to say it; Happy Belated Holidays and Happy New Year.

Slowly, my collection is growing…

So I am a big fan of the Fenty line of products. I started off with just the “Fenty Glow” lip gloss and now I own all three lip gloss shades, a lip stain, a lip stick, concealer, foundation and setting powder.

I don’t use make up much but I try to go for that natural look more often then not and this brand really does fit my needs without making my face look like a poured it on.

And the best part? My sister and I are the same shade so we are always sharing.

Professional Steam Iron: Does It Work? (Not Sponsored)

The answer is yaaaaaassssssss. **cough** Ahem. Yes. Yes it does.

Mind you, I am black with hair that is thick and in my opinion medium coarse. With that said my hair is getting pressed out better than most irons I’ve ever had. It comes out soft and silky smooth. Dare I say it’s better than relaxer!

Only Con: this iron really sucks at doing edges and those small hairs on the nape of your neck. But if you are looking to press out your hair and not weigh it down with creams and sprays, this iron is seriously bomb.

Sorry no hair pictures; been sick all through Christmas and New Years so my face looks meh.
