50 Shades of Gray….

There once was a time when having Gray hair was something that was avoided at all cost, but now……many are going GRAY by CHOICE. Can you believe it! When I first took note of this trend I was a little on the fence about it but suprisingly I am actually liking it. Now that doesnt mean I am going to run out tomorrow and dye my tresses gray but I am open to the idea at some point down the line, maybe. Just a few tips….

If you in fact decide you want to dabble with gray color make sure it is fitting to your skin tone and face. Not everyone can go full on gray nor can everyone where a light gray. I remember discovering “Gorgeous in Grey” the beauty/blogger whose hair is naturally gray and fell in love with her gorgeous tresses. Check out some of the photos below and share your thoughts. What do you think of the trend? Do you ever see yourself rocking this new look?

Beauty Bar: Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

josiemaran2

This product can be found at Sephora. I bought the travel size which is .5 fl oz. Retailed for $14 and some change. Yes , its on the pricey side but definitely  worth it. I will be going back for the full size.

According to the Box, It Can Be Used As:

-A daily moisturizer

– Treat split ends      

-Condition Cuticles 

-A Body Moisturizer

-A Bath Oil               

-To Soothe Rough Patches of Skin on the elbows, knees, and feet

AMMMMMAAAAZZZZIIIINNNNGGGGGG!!!!!! I love this stuff. I learned of Josie Maran’s Argan Oil from one of the several youtuber’s that I watch and my interest was peaked in trying it out. Nicole Guerriero uses it as a facial moisturizer and when I purchased this, that is what I too intended to use it for. Well, I first used it in my hair as a moisturizer on one of my dry hair days……AND. LET. ME. TELL. YOU! This is one of the BEST oils to use in your hair. I do wear my hair in its natural state and I experiment with many different products in search of finding my staples and this has def made the list. I encourage you ladies to try this out. For those with relaxed hair, I am certain this will work very well in your hair as well.

After using it in my hair, I then used it as a moisturizer for my face. LET. ME. TELL. YOU! AAAMMMAAAZZZING! yet again. As a night time moisturizer I already used the Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Corrector (for my dark spots of course and for the vitamin C)  and I mixed it with a little of the Argan Oil. The next morning, my face was so soft. Now, the Garnier Dark Spot Corrector is a little on the oily side so be mindful of that. In Nicole’s video she states that she too has oily skin and I have heard many say that by putting an oil based product on your face helps your body reduce the level of oils it produces. So for those with oily skin that is a little beauty tip. I will post her video below so you can see for yourself. Fast forward to 4:30 to hear her speak on Josie Maran products.

Growing up I was very much so a tomboy. ever so often I would tap into my girly side but for the most part I just felt to overwhelmed with trying to find out what my style was. Mostly I wore t-shirts and jeans or even oversized shirts. Didn’t really care too much for my body either so a lot of the time I was trying to cover it by wearing baggy clothes or sweaters. As I got older I found myself wanting to get more into fashion and makeup and all that good stuff but it wasn’t until maybe the past 4 years that I really started to grow in the style realm. It first started with a shoe obsession and now it has grown into clothes and cosmetics. Its funny because my daughter is quite the girly girl and knows early on what she does and does not like…for instance, she doesn’t really care for jeans unless they are skinny jeans, she loves leggings, and would wear a dress or skirt every single day if I let her. The winter time is almost a battle every morning when it comes to getting dressed. But anywho, one thing that I started to do was pay more attention to others whether celebrities celebrities or a stranger on the street for stylspiration. One of my very first Fashion Idols was Tracee Ellis Ross as Joan Clayton on Girlfriends.  OH MY GAWD!!! SHE IS A FASHION GOD TO ME! Even outside of her character on the show she is just amazing with clothes and I… just… want to be like her when I grow up…

Angela Simmons had me  a little worried in the beginning but overtime she kind grew on me. I am really feeling her in the fashion realm as well right now…First picture is one of those questionable ensembles I was talking about….

These ladies have helped guide me and taught me how to think outside of the box. That clothes don’t always have to be matchy matchy. Bright Colors and patterns are to be played with and experimented with. And most importantly , confidence in yourself makes the 0utfit work.

I wanna hear from you. Who gives you STYLINSPIRATION?????
