Family Photo Results

Hi Guys,

I hope everyone had a great father's day. My day was pretty long and stressful. Nothing was going right at all starting with our family photo. I decided to go with a purple muted polish on my nails. I wanted to post a picture but my hands got cut off from the photo. I used Planks a lot from O.P.I.'s Pirates collections. I'm totally pissed that you can't see my nails. At least we got this pose right because my husband was very impatient the whole time because my son wouldn't look at the camera. I mean he is only 3. What do you expect a 3 year old to do. Well I'm going to post it anyway hope you guys like the photo.

XOXO - Lexi

A little help!

I hope everyone is enjoying the weather. It's beautiful out here in sunny California. It was just last week or two weeks ago that it was raining. I've brought out the sandals to show off the well painted toes. Father's Day is this weekend and we have decided to take family portraits. We chose to wear purple and white as our theme. I found this great Ralph Lauren polo dress in purple. I wanted to ask my followers all 11 of them (lol) what color polish should I paint my nails? I was thinking yellow because the horse is yellow on my dress. I might even do plain white. I love white nails its one of my favorite looks. I'll post pictures of the final shoot maybe Sunday. Everyone enjoy their weekend.

Monoi Repairing Collection

Hey Guys,

I recently took out my weave that I had in for about 3 months. I only get a weave about once a year. The stress of the weave just doesn't agree with my hair at all. The tugging, pulling, tightness is very harsh on my hair. So you are probably wondering then why do I get it all. Well I try to give my hair a break from the flat-ironing that I do every two weeks. When I shampoo and conditioned my hair with my KeraCare products that I normally use my hair was horrible. So much hair came out. I could have easily filled a plastic bag with the amount of hair that came out. I'm not even sure I want a full sew-in anymore.

I've been doing a little research and reading reviews about the Monoi Repairing Collection from Carol's Daughter. I saw a feed on facebook about a 15% discount using promo code MONOI96. I thought this would be a perfect time to use a new product on my hair since its so stressed. I went on over to Carol's daughter website and found that there are sets already packaged together for the type of hair issues that you are having. I decided to get the Stronger, Smoother Frizz-Free Hair Set because it catered to people who use heat on their hair all the time. The prices is $54 but I searched for promo codes and got my set for a total of $44 and free-shipping. There are other sets too. I even love how she tells you how to use the products together. Normally you buy products and you wonder can I use this with that for example. Well she tells you step by step how to use it. I did reviews that people experienced drying out of the hair. Cross your fingers that it doesn't happen to me.

A friend of mine suggested that I try WEN instead because there was a study that Carol's Daughter products were a bit over priced for the quality. Maybe all the celebrity endorsements is what is making the prices so high. I have tried WEN before and loved it but I have been dying to try the Carol's Daughter collection. I should be receiving my shipment next week. I write another post on my results.

Checking In

I don't think I want to devote this blog just to fashion anymore. There is too much I love out there in the world. I'm not so organized so I will just post whatever I want here and there. I will still post polish, clothes, shoes and things of that sort but I will also post about my life. I want to start baking so I might even cupcakes!! Yummy. We will see where the blog takes me. Until my next post...
