As you know I’m a huge fan of easy hairstyles so I’m super excited to share this style which is one of my favorites in the hopes that it will become one of yours as…

I Have Fallen Hard For This Wig – Chantel Lace Front Edge

So I think I may be falling for wigs. No surprise there, right? As you already know *doing* my hair is not at the top of my priority list these days. The days of me spending hours twisting and curling and doing all amazing the things that you can possibly do with your natural hair (on a regular basis) are few and far between. Of course, that does not mean that I don’t want fabulous hair days so I still take care…

Relax & UnWind at with Complimentary Services at Aveda Experience Centers

This past Black Friday was my first *major* Black Friday weekend for my lifestyle apparel brand Ven & Rose. All the planning, strategizing and long nights (that turned into early mornings) were worth it, but afterward I was TIRED. Enter Aveda. A few days after Black Friday, I got to check out the new Aveda Experience Center at NorthPark Mall here in Dallas. That invite was right on time because I definitely needed to unwind a bit.…

Does This Thing Work? My Experience with At Home MicroDerm Treatment #HelloRadiance

This post sponsored by Silkn. #HelloRadiance. All opinions are honest and based on my own experiences. During my recent vacation, I was chatting with a hotel employee about an event the hotel was hosting. He informed my husband & I that we needed to be at least 28 years old to attend the event. I’m going to assume that he was trying to flatter us, but we both laughed so loud because neither of us is anywhere close to 28. As a…

Perfect Crochet Twists with Latched & Hooked Zoe Collection

It’s no secret that I LOVE crochet braids. They’re easy to do, convenient and pretty much allows you to have any look in less time. Earlier this year my friend MomsCharge introduced me to the brand Latched & Hooked which specializes in pre-curled crochet hair. I was sent a few boxes of their Kenzie Curl which I used to make this wig that I refer to as “Curla”.  Curla is my “fun hair”. She is light and bouncy and I’ve worn…

Thank you to  Stitch Fix  for gifting me these items to wear to Blogging While Brown.  This past weekend I attended the Blogging While Brown conference in Washington DC.

How To Easily Go From Poolside To Picnic with Target Style.

Thank you to Target for sponsoring this post. As usual, all opinions are honest and my own. Despite the fact that the official first day of summer was only two days ago, the heat here in Dallas has already crossed the 100° mark. That’s an obvious sign that summer 2016 is going to be a long and hot one. I can’t swim (very well), but that does not mean I can’t hang out by the pool and dip my feet in the water…
