FOTD: Scandal-inspired Kerry Washington EW cover look/Hiatus edition & Hair of the day

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey! So, I am OBSESSED with Scandal.  I am OBSESSED with Scandal!!!  I don’t think that there has been a TV show that literally affects me physically, emotionally.  I live for this show.   I plan my week around Scandal.  And I love how they style OP!  It’s amazing to see a strong, amazing, brilliant, successful woman who dresses so well! I want EVERYTHING in that closet! I am still crushing on a few of those dresses and that white coat she always wears.  We can have both, intelligence and a great sense of style! Yes I am a gladiator! I’ve been a fan of Kerry Washington for a long time and I love that she’s getting what’s due to her.  KW will always be Olivia Pope to me! Tony Goldwyn will always be the playa Prez Fitzgerald Grant III! And for the record, I ship Olitz all day long! Olitz for life! So I pretty much died last week when Entertainment Weekly hit the newstands!  LOVED it! Loved it! I had to recreate the look on Kerry Washington.

But before that……

If you haven’t seen Episode 218, you might want to skip to the next section…

***SPOILER ALERT***

So uhm…how insane is this Jake/Olivia/Fitz storyline! What’s Jake’s real situation? Who’s the mole?  Who’s the random black dude?   And I’m going to need Shonda and dem to stop messing with Huck!! I’m over seeing him being so tortured! 🙁 And these 3 week hiatuses? I see you ABC….I see you…I don’t know how I’m going to survive the next episodes.  I am still exhausted from Episode 218.  I usually am physically and emotionally drained after each episodes and my poor TV is tired of being screamed at.  I hear they are going to be gut –wrenching! Lawd….I can’t wait to see Episode 220, the episode directed by Tony Goldwyn (YUM!)

***END OF SPOILER***

So back to the tutorial!

Hot right??!! I loved this super sultry bronzed smoky eye look.  And the full-on lashes made the look for me.  Perfected skin, nude shimmery lips, corally cheeks.  I did something that I don’t usually do, I added lower false lashes.

So on to the look!

Hair of the Day! Twist out, half up

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’] Here is the hairstyle of the day.

My latest twist out!!!

My usual twistout and I decided to wear it half up and half down.  Super easy! I just unravelled the twists but I did not separate the individual twists. I used these products to do my two strand twists – these are pretty much my holy grail products!

  • Kinky Curly Knot Today as a leave-in
  • Oyin Handmade Whipped Pudding
  • Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade

What do you use?? Laters!

My favourite products of 2011!!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

The countdown to 2012 has begun!!!

I enjoyed digging into beauty this year.  I loved that we embraced colour, texture, prints or anything bold.  It was ok to colour block or to dress with some opulence.  I love that these trends will continue into 2012.  I’m over all-neutral looks.

So here’s what I loved in 2011 (in no particular order):

1) Becca Beach Tints

I love this product! I have it in Peach and it is probably the easiest blush to apply.  Super smooth texture and it just melts into the skin making to colour look like it came from within.  Works on all skin types.  A must have in all seasons!

LOTD: Natural hair twistout

Hey!

Just a quick picture of my twistout.

2 Strand twistout

I keep my hair in a 2-strand twist about 95 % of the time.  It’s just easy.  But a few days before washing and deep conditioning, I take the twists out to allow my hair to breathe, rest, whatever.  I usually braid the roots and twist the rest of the hair.  As for products, right now I am using my ever faithful Oyin Handmade products and some other items.
