Happy Monday yall! It’s officially December and I’m excited because A) 2013 is approaching (and I’m SUPER hyped for the new year) and B) it’s time for fun Holiday Gift Guides & giveaways. Whoop whoop! (*does virtual tootsie roll*) So first let me tell you about my exciting past few weeks and then I’ll get into the good stuff you guys can look forward to on the site this month…
My Hair Is Laid
Guess what? It’s been officially 2 YEARS since my big chop! I’m so excited, guys. I’ve had tremendous growth since I decided to debut Cece’s Curls back in November 2010.
I have an appreciation for the kinks as well as my straight strands. Thanks to YouTube gurus, natural hair blogs, and constant experimentation, I feel like I finally know how to handle my curls all on my own.
I’m doing un-assisted top knots and everything yall. So happy! Going natural was one of the best beauty decisions I’ve ever made. This week I’ll be doing a post on my updated hair regimen (similar to this one I did in May), my favorite products and my go-to hairstyles. Stay tuned!
LoveBrownSugar Nail Lacquer Presale Blowout
So as you guys already know, my LoveBrownSugar nail lacquer for LiSi Cosmetics (Available HERE) officially went on presale last week! I’m beyond ecstatic – there are a few pictures above in the Instagram collage from my launch event. So far, you guys have been snatching them up! This week I’ll have a few nail tutorial posts up documenting different ways you can style the “LoveBrownSugar” color for your holiday fetes. In the mean time, order your bottle at SHOP LoveBrownSugar – it’s only $4.90!
Inspiration Is Everywhere
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really trying to hone in on what my successes and failures were in 2012 so that I can start planning for 2013. You guys know I’m a huge fan of the Vision Board as a source of inspiration. Last year I did an entire 3-Part series on creating one and I plan on doing a follow-up to that again this year.
What I’m starting to realize though, is that inspiration can come from so many different and unexpected sources. From a beautiful bouquet of roses to a childhood picture. I’m OBSESSED with the new social trend of “Throwback Thursdays” so anytime I go home, I comb through piles of old photos. I stumbled upon the one above. Me at 4 years old giving the sassiest side eye of life. According to my friends, I still give people this exact look. Anyway, I once heard that if you’re trying to figure out what your true passion is, you should look to your past. Look to those days of your innocence as a child with no inhibitions. Even back in the day I was expressing myself in fashion (check my jean jumper and shoelace bow!) and throwing subtle shade.
