Green & Glamour Block Party and Beauty Event

This past Saturday, K.D from Hair Gurl and I attended the Green & Glamour Block Party and Beauty Event at Natural Resources Salon.  Due to the rainy weather the block party was moved inside the salon where attendees munched on snacks and viewed a fashion show hosted by Great Day Houston’s Deborah Duncan.  Natural Resources Salon is a chemical free salon that specializes in natural hair care, organic products and treatment for hair loss.  

I had the pleasure of meeting Rocquelle from Consider Me Lovely who was super friendly!
If you haven’t check out Rocquelle’s blog please do. She has a great love of vintage fashion and accessories. 

Uche was the fashion designer for the event and will be relocating to LA to make her mark in the fashion business.  She is extremely talented!

The event was so much fun and I will be returning to the salon soon to keep up my new hairdo!

Nail Polish Junkie

This post is for all my Nail Polish Fanatics!   
Thanks to the power of You Tube I became addicted to nail polish. Watching countless hours of nail polish collection videos I became intrigued with all the colors from bright bolds, subtle pastels to deep dark rich colors. I love them all!
Nail polish is the perfect accessory by adding that additional pop to any outfit. But the best incentive for collecting nail polish is the price. You’re able to get that shopping high for less than two dollars.  C’mon who wouldn’t want to make a trip to CVS, Walgreens, Target or you store of choice for the newest nail color.
I was so strung out at one time, that I had a subscription to a nail magazine. This enabled me to be informed of all the latest nail polish collections. I also track down a local nail salon wholesaler who sold to non license individuals. I was able to get the latest collections such as OPI and China Glaze at discount price. But my main goal was to purchase my nail polish rack.

My nail polish art pens…I love the Sally Hansen nail art pens!
Has anyone tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects yet? They last up to 10 days! I haven’t tried mine yet…
