Trying for Spring…

A few things I’d like to try right now:

Bold lipcolor. I’ve been experimenting with a cheap lipliner and various lipsticks before I go whole hog buying an electric violet-y lipstick. I’d like to try orange, too.

I gotta take better care of my hair. Detangle more often. Maybe try some henna and coconut oil. I’ve gotten lazy.

There is a turban in my future. I can feel it!

I’m veeeerrrrry interested in crop tops, despite an affinity for cake and an aversion to stomach crunches. This should be interesting…

Do you feel the urge to try something different this season?

    Coconut oil is amazing for deep conditioning. And I hear you on the crop tops- my trick is to put a contrasting colored tank underneath and keep on eating cake!

    Yes, yes and yes. To the pink lips, the healthy hair and the turbans! I would say yes to the crop tops but I just ate a bagel, so maybe after I hit the gym

      What’s a “gym”?

    The bold lips are beautiful and so in-line with the electric color trends of clothing for spring. And, well, I’m a fan of hot pink in any form.

    Here is a link from to foster your crop top experiment. I’m a total enabler 🙂
