Marble Nails

Standard

Today I decided to do my nails. I have been wanting to try out this marble design for some time now, and I finally got around to doing it today 🙂


The tutorial is in the video below. Very easy to do, but I must warn you it is rather time consuming because you have to make a different “marble water” for each nail (and each nail comes out differently of course) so it takes patience, however the dry time for the nail is less than 2 minutes so I guess it all evens out. Her’s is much better, I’m sure after a few more practices mine will look as good as hers but I don’t think it turned out too bad for my first try 🙂 Imma wear my nails in public proud! LOL

Hope you like 🙂

Wishlist Wednesdays

Standard

First, I just want to first give mad props to all those bloggers who blog everyday.  I was on a real bloggin roll and one day I said I would take a break…that day turned into 2…now a week and a half later I am back.  For non other than Wishlist Wednesday’s.  I’m tempted to double it up (the wishlist) because I missed last week! 😦

WTH it’s my blog.  I think I will do just that 🙂

HAIR

I Naturally N.Joy my hair…. first before I tell you what I wish for, just look at these curls!! I did a twist-out and put my hair in a pony/puff and it came out soooo pretty 🙂

OK, yeah I know it’s hot! LOL! No, but for real…so here are the two hair items on my wishlist:

First is terressentials organic hair wash it’s a pure hair wash.  There have been some really good reviews on this product and it is supposed to get your hair the cleanest that it can possibly be.  I really do want to try this soon.  

I would also like to have the hair therapy wrap.  It would be great for deep conditioning or hot oil treatments. I hate sitting under dryers.

Beauty

Nails nails nails!!! So, I saw a girl with this nail polish on and I absolutely loved it. I have been looking for it in stores everywhere, but it looks like I’m gonna have to go ahead and order it before spring! It’s from the OPI Muppet line and it’s called  Rainbow Connection.  ❤

oooh and purple lip glass

 Fashion

Now this is a jumpsuit.  I love the polka dots.

The glitter on this dress is amazing

Home

This is something I will probably never get, but I love the idea of having one of these, especially for my son’s room.  A display-it storage from Pottery Barn.  It just seems so practical.

I really need a sitting area to do my hair and makeup so everyday when I wake up to get ready,  I start off like a princess (with the exception of my styling squad) and will hopefully walk out the door looking like one too 🙂 ahhh…

Other

I saw these watches and I fell hard; my heart skipped a beat.   The La Mer Collections, all of them, are incredible. Aren’t they?!?!! The leather bands and the bracelet look is just wonderful!

Hope you  🙂 N.Joy

Amen Sista!!! AMEN!!!

Standard

I tumbled across this amazing video yesterday and shared it on twitter and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I decided to share it with all of you as well.  Before you watch, I just want to share with you my thoughts on why I think this video is so superb.

First of all, we as women (all women of all races) need to stop looking at one another as though the other is not good enough or in pitty just because she doesn’t have a man…really!!! We honestly need to stop letting our “relationship” status define who we are in society.  The older you get, the worse it is.  It seems that if you are not married by a certain age something must be wrong with you.

Nuh-uh…NO, NO, NO, NO, NO [yes, i’m shaking my finger and twistin my neck]

You are NOT right! First of all, just because you have a man, doesn’t mean you HAVE a man.  Look ladies, if you are getting the crooked eye from some other married woman because you are single then something might not be right in her relationship…yah know.  Most happily married women I know don’t question or judge your “status” it’s the women who are walking a tight-rope on their not so steady relationship that have the most to say about you to make them feel better about themselves and what they do (or really don’t) appear to have.

People with real, true love understand how hard it is to find and know how lucky they are to have it and understand that it takes time…the others, well they just get married because they think it make them a better person in society…then they get divorced when the children go to college and call it “irreconcilable differences” LMAO.

How about this you might not have a man because you are not gonna take whatever is thrown your way just to say you “he put a ring on it” like Kim said “the ring don’t mean a thing”  and honey-baby-chile I’d rather wait for that person to come who is going to be strong when I’m weak, shedding the light when I’m in the dark, thinking outside the box when I’m stuck inside….my best friend, my supporter and I want to be him all of thee above to him as well.

So, I don’t know about you but I’m not single because something’s wrong with me. I’m single cause I wanna be.  And instead of crying over why I don’t have a man, Imma do me!  Believe me, I have kissed enough toads and recently learned that I WILL NOT settle for less just to say I gotta man! So death to the Tragic, Scientifically Less Attractive, Unmarried Single Black Woman!!

And with that being said…. you may press play now 🙂
