StyLe DiArIeS:Doreen

Doreen is a fashion blogger whose style I lurv... I caught uo with her just to get the scoop on what influences her style:
I adore most people in the fashion world and even people I see on the streets but I my fashion inspirations stem from my mood.
Although I love classic vintage and masculine inspired looks, I'm never able to put my style into any specific category because I tend to wear what I feel. So I would say that my style is pretty much eclectic, ranging from girly and feminine looks to classic vintage and tailored looks.
Since I'm a college student, my life basically revolves around school and so i'm not able to look as crazy as i want for lectures lol. In my perfect world, I would be playing "dress up" and wearing heels everyday but since this is the real world, I have to tone it down for lectures.
One of the things love and tend to wear the most are blazers just because it transforms every outfit and gives it a very bossy and expensive look.

An Afternoon Rant!!!

Its a few days to Christmas yaay! And its my older brother's birthday today. Smile all around :) I still feel as though the Christmas Grinch stole a bit of my Christmas cheer and I'll be damned if I don't get that back sooner or later. Either way I'm still so grateful for everything that has happened to me this year. As cliche as it sounds, wrapping up a year really does make you think about everything that has happened. I wouldn't trade any of it, the summer drama, break ups and make ups...that's what growing up is all about. Happy Holidays everyone!

Sooooo, I virtually live on youtube... well why not? Its a well of information and since I've been on my weight loss journey, my hair journey and even my make up journey its been sooo sooo sooo helpful. One of the ladies I love to watch is Sharmaine369 and I managed to corner her for one of my interviews. I love her hair! :)

1.Would you consider yourself a youtube guru?

Do I consider myself a youtube guru? Not yet, but I will be! I just started making videos and giving advice almost a year ago, I think it requires a lot of knowledge to be considered a guru and I'm still learning as I go. I believe in the near future though I will be considered one, but in the mean time I'm just taking this experience as it comes :)

2. What have you enjoyed most about being on a hair journey?

Since being on my hair journey I've enjoyed seeing the progress my hair has made, before my hair journey my hair was not very healthy so just seeing how far my hair has come is something I really enjoy. Besides seeing my progress, I've really enjoyed helping other young women on their hair journeys and just giving them advice on their hair. When I was younger I wish I had someone to tell me how to take care of my thick hair, but I never had that guidance so if I can help some young girl or woman I'm happy!

3. Can black women really grow long healthy hair?

Yes! Black women can grow long beautiful healthy hair, black hair requires a lot of attention and once a person begins to learn what her hair needs she will then start to see a huge change in her hair. Believe it or not, our hair communicates with us all the time. Our hair lets us know whether it needs moisture, protein, or just some simple TLC. We have to in a sense listen to our hair and spoil it, in the end we will have long healthy hair.

4. What's the best advice you would give to anyone struggling with hair growth?

The best advice I would give to someone regarding hair growth would be to reevaluate their hair regimen. When hair is healthy and getting all that it needs hair will grow. However, if there is nothing wrong with the hair regimen then I would suggest different growth aids like MSM, biotin, castor oil, sulfur, and other things related to stimulating growth.

5. Okay on to some beauty questions.. whats the one make up item you can't live without?

The one makeup item that I can't live without would be my Covergirl Trueblend Mineral Bronzer in golden sunrise, it's such a gorgeous bronzer and at times when I don't feel like putting on foundation I just use my ELF studio powder brush to apply it. The bronzer gives such a pretty glow, I absolutely love it!

6. Whats the biggest fashion and make up mistakes you see us women do these days?

The biggest fashion mistake that I see women make these days would be booty shorts, even though it's starting to get cold in the summer time the booty shorts come out. I'm a college student and on my campus during the spring time some women feel the need to wear really short shorts to the point that you can see the start of their butt cheeks and it's horrid! As far as makeup goes I haven't seen too many makeup mishaps, but I'm not a huge fan heavy cakey foundation.

7. Are you currently single, shacked up or looking for love?

I'm single! :)

8. And finally, what advice would u give to young women who want to be more confident?

For young woman who want to be more confident the number one advice I could give is to not care about what others think about you and start believing that your happiness matters. When I was in my preteens I had low self esteem, but as I grew older I realized that this is who I am and if I don't love myself then how can others love me. Every women needs to realize that she is beautiful, strong, and worthy of the best things that life has to offer!

StyLe DiArIeS: Hannah

For a social event, like this Espionage themed party I went to, I usually opt for bolder make up (the classic YSL red lips), and bling. Accessorize, accessorize.

For an intimate birthday outing of a close friend's, I choose something for comfortable, this short flowy dress. I chose the dress in white for that cool easy going look. Something darker in this cut, would make the dress look dull. Kept my make up fresh with tinted moisturizer (no foundation), smudged eyes (plum shade), subtle blush and my current obsession (creamy pink lips). Always, loads of mascara.

I'm super excited to get the chance to ask Megz a few make up and beauty questions!! Oh and check out some vids I will be posting! enjoyyy............

Is it safe to say that you are a hair Guru on youtube??
No I don't think I am a "Guru" because anyone and everyone can have healthy hair. I'm just another person on a hair journey but I just happen to be showing my progress on you-tube.

Whats the best thing about making youtube hair videos??
I guess I would just say sharing my ideas and answering questions to the people who watch me. Most of my videos are answers to questions that I get. So doing them in video form is easier and clearer for people to understand.

Seeing as you can't please everyone in life, how do you deal with haters on youtube??
Reply and make them feel stupid! LOL But most of the time I find them weird because they say rude or hateful things on a video of a person they don't know. That just makes me assume that they have other life issues/personal self esteem issue going on and they need somewhere to take it out which is unfortunate.

Are you currently single, shacked up or just not looking for love at the moment?? Single. I don't believe anyone should really look because normally when you "look" you end up getting something you never really wanted in the first place. So Ill just let who ever he is find me and that's how its always been.

The one make-up item you can't live without is??
I don't know if its make up but I love carmex.

I've seen you do a lot of pretty make up on you-tube, do you always have to leave your house with a lot of make up on your face or are you a wash and go kinda girl?
I rarely wear make up when I go out and whenever I do wear make up its very little. Other than that I just wash my face and put on some carmex and leave. The only time that I do wear make up is if its for a special occasion other than that if I'm making a you-tube video with a make up look it comes right off after I'm done recording.

And lastly.... it seems like the season to boost some female confidence, what advice can you give to all the ladies out there about having confidence??
In my opinion confidence is only gained through personal acknowledgment or knowing who you are as a person and being comfortable with the person you are. So I guess I would say just to love yourself because it will show and rub off on others.

Guys if you've enjoyed this interview and want to show BlackBread some love go to enetred my blog in a comp pleaseee click n vote :)

What you gon' do with all that Junk????

Sooooooo, i had spent months researching on colonic irrigations before My friend Hannah and I attempted to do it... and i think it was well worth the money! Walking in i thought I'd be nervous... i mean.... i haven't ever had anything stuck up my bum.... my ass is exit only! Lol. The colon hydrotherapist put me at ease and the experience wasnt half as bad. The benefits of colonic irrigation are amazing and it certainly left Hannah and myself feeling good.....If you are ever interested make sure you read up on it properly.. but in short ...

Colon hydrotherapy, or colonics, is a centuries-old therapy using filtered water to flush accumulated fecal waste, harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites, gas and mucus from the colon. It is a safe and gentle yet powerful way to cleanse the body, and to make all body systems and organs more efficient.........


I've been in love with ths girl' s dop e make up for quite a while now and i thought I'd dub this weekend Talent weekend! I asked h er a few questions...Enjoy!

Would you consider yourself a make up guru?

What do u enjoy most about make up?
I enjoy the transformation the most.....

Whats the one make-up item you simply can't live without?
Its gotta be lip balm for me, cant live without it

Whats the best way to find what foundation works for you?
Test it on your jaw line and maybe at the back of your hand

What advice can you give any make up lovers out there for achieving the perfect going out look??
Sticking to neutral colours really helps for day time makeup, and for evning makeup maybe add alittle more colour to brighten your eyes and darker colours if u wanna go smokey. And remember that blending your eye shadows can give a perfect result.!!!

For My Husband...Inspired by my parents

One of my latest pieces I put up on facebook....enjoy!

Lets hold hands. Lets pretend that day is night and that birds can talk. While we're at it lets stroke the frogs and ask the moon not to tell anyone we're here by ourselves. Mother doesnt have to know, father doesnt have to know. Ah the joys of young love. Young love on his part though for there is nothing young about the sag of my 59year old breasts and the lines of laughter that have framed my eyes.
I say young on his part but he is only young at heart. Nothing about his 60year old frame is young but when i look at him I am transported back 45years when we first met. The world was new and fresh and ours. Those were the days when we didn't have to pretend that day was night and the moon didnt tell a soul we were out by ourselves. Mother didnt know, Father didnt know.
I grasp his hand and lean in to kiss him. It is saturated with years of love and understanding. It is unlike the kisses we shared ages ago, ones that left us breathless, led to broken glasses and the police knocking on our door to ask us why there was so much noise. This kiss however says 'you've always been the one'. He looks back and i know he understands, we've never needed words. Mother always knew Father always knew.~
