Rediscovering My Voice

Hi everyone! It has been a really long time since I have consistently uploaded posts. I was having some trouble finding my voice in what I wanted my posts to be about. I’m not sure if I completely know what I want to do, but I do know a couple of things that I have taken an interest in. You all know that I love makeup so I will continue doing posts on that but I want to add baking and maybe even food reviews! I also want to focus on more hair posts. Yes, I know it may sound like a lot of ideas jumbled into one but I promise the blog will be a lot more organized and structured. I am reorganizing my life and making this blog one of my priorities!

Summer Nails

Summer is quickly approaching! It is time to bring out the bright floral colors. After all, that is what summer represents! It does have an infinite shine, which is a glossy texture. The formulas for all O.P.I polishes are extremely thick and creamy. If you have never purchased from this brand, it is most likely the same if not similar to the polishes used in a nail salon when using gel color. Below are polishes from the O.P.I Fiji collection.

Copy Her Style: Keke Palmer

Hi lovies! Keke Palmer recently posted a photo on her instagram with her new short hair. But I wasn’t focused on her hair. Although it does give me Nia Long vibes, I was more focused on the outfit itself. If you guys didn’t know, I love old classic looks! I was so inspired I decided to find a mock of clothes that you can purchase yourself to achieve the same look.

Some of the items below are not the exact clothing in the photo, it is a mock. I tried to find the cheapest price for each item. 

Snapped Button Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 $19.90

Grey Spaghetti Strap Crop Top$6.99

Girlfriend High Rise Jeans from Urban Outfitters $49

Superstar Foundation Sneakers from Adidas $55

I enjoyed searching through different sites to find these. It actually introduced me to new sites! I’m actually planning on doing more of these! Also, be sure to follow me on pinterest: @alexus0!

It’s Time For A New Bra!

I will literally wear my same bra for months. Yes, I know it’s not appropiate but ladies don’t act like you don’t do the same. It’s crazy how quickly undergarments can become overworn. But do you really know when it’s time to give up that lucky bra and throw it out? Stop ignoring the signs and make the change!

Elasticity 

Once the elastic band no longer stretches, it’s a problem. You are no longer getting the support the bra is suppose to grip onto which means you’re literally wearing a bra for no reason. Once you have the assistance, you want to maintain it.

Spillage

We constantly wash and dry our bras depending on the brand. But regardless, your bra is going to shrink but your boobs are not! Once you notice your boob spilling out the side of your bra, its definitely time for an upgrade. You never want your boobs buldging out of the protection it’s suppose to be locked into especially your nipple area.

Wiring

Pain is the last thing your boobs should feel. A bra is your comfort, don’t hold onto something that should have to be adjusted in places its not suppose to.

Dirty Bra Straps

This one is for every girl who still doesn’t understand that it’s time to bury the bra. Your straps can easily be seen by anyone! If no matter how many times you wash it, it continues to look dirty, THROW IT AWAY. There are several things that can make a female unattractive and that is one of them! If that doesn’t speak for itself, I don’t know what does. 

There are obviously other signs that it’s time for a new bra but these stood out to me because I realized through these specifically. Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts below!
