Getting Ready for 2015

2014 is winding down, and we’re all getting ready kick 2015 off with a bang. This has been a particularly great year for me. Not only did I launch Curlz And The City (which debuted 5 months ago this week!), but this year I really feel like I’ve really grown immensely in both my personal and professional life. I’ve really gotten in touch with the things that make me the most happy and I’ve been focused on  directing my time and energy towards those things. It’s been the trigger for amazing blessings and incredible peace in 2014 that I look forward to continuing into the new year.

Over the next two weeks I’ll be taking time to spend with family in L.A., relaxing a lot, doing a little shopping, planning & goal-setting for next year, and just setting up my life for even more great things in 2015. I’ll be back with all new outfits and blog posts soon, but in the meantime, I’ll leave you with a few of  my favorite outfits from 2014.

Review: Cantu Shea Butter Curl Activator Cream

Product Review - Cantu Shea Butter Curl Activator Cream

My Wash & Go results after using Cantu Shea Butter’s Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream. LOVE IT!

When it comes to hair products, I usually stick to what I know works. I’m no product junkie. I feel like if a product gives me the results I’m looking for, why try to fix what’s not broken? Cantu Shea Butter has been a staple brand in my cabinet since I’ve been natural. When I had longer hair, I swore by their Leave In Conditioning Cream for my twist outs.

I recently learned about a newer curl defining product that they have for girls like me who subscribe to a wash & go regimen. Since I love this brand, I decided to give Cantu Shea Butter’s Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream a test drive.

Stackable Iced Sugar Cookie Recipe

Stackable Iced Sugar Cookie Recipe

One of the things I’m looking forward to doing when I get home to L.A. for the holidays is my annual tradition of making holiday sugar cookies. I have fun making them (even though my artistic decorating skills rival a 10 year old) and my family and friends can’t wait to get their hands on ‘em! Here’s the recipe for my famous stackable iced sugar cookies…which are perfect to bring to holiday gatherings over the next few weeks :)

Curlz And The City’s Top 9 Beauty Hacks

9 Beauty Hacks From Curlz And The City

The other day, I was taking part in my normal day-to-day beauty rituals. You know, shower, apply makeup, do hair…etc. As I was doing so, I realized that I have a few beauty shortcuts that I picked up over the years that save me time, money and sometimes my sanity. So I thought I’d share a few with all of you. Here are my top nine beauty hacks every woman should know about.

1) Toilet seat covers double as oil blotting sheets. They work just as well, if not better than the real thing. They’re the same material as my preferred blotting sheet brand and they’re larger so I don’t have to go through 5 sheets to blot my whole face. And, best yet, they’re free (for you at least)! …

Fancy Fall Coat

Orange Wool Fall Coat Zara

Some people, especially in New York, think that fall and winter are the seasons you take all your brightly colored items in your wardrobe and pack them away for the warmer spring and summer months. WRONG! You can still incorporate brights (and whites for that matter) all year round. Take this orange coat for example.
