Before Meets After.... Drab 2 Fab Hair Makeover!

Hey Glamour Dolls,

A couple of posts ago I said that I got a new look... and here it is!!!



I got a pixie cut, it's a short hair style that is flat on the sides and back and about three inches of hair on the top. I LOVE this hair cut! This is the shortest I've had my hair. I've been planning on cutting my hair since last Fall, I wanted to wait until the weather was nicer to get it cut.

I cut it because my hair had some breakage in the crown and split ends almost up to the roots. I don't see a need in trying to salvage hair that is badly damaged, sometimes you just need to start off fresh -plus it was time for a change. I was wearing the same cherry cola red rinse in my hair since I was 19, I decided to let that go too. I now have an Ebony Black rinse in my hair and a little cherry cola red at the top, that was my stylist's idea :)


The pixie cut style is not new, I had several inspirations for this hairstyle. My very first inspiration is another makeup artist who does makeup and hair videos on You Tube. She has the same style and her hair is absolutely gorgeous. Her name is Tiffany and her channel is

Although, these three fierce divas have changed their hairstyle-they were also inspirations for my cut. They rocked the pixie cut and made it work!

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
