So we’re having stupid good times over here and I just had to share some of the pics.
I woke up this morning feeling as if I’d been drugged. Saturday night was the CurlyNikki event, my husband’s 10 year class reunion, AND the CurlyNikki After Party. Can we say, marathon? Yesterday, we had to get back up, bright and early, and head out for his Graduation celebration… ate way too much and I’m about to get up and go search for leftovers now!
Syl and Auntie!
check out my little cousin’s hair. Nuts, right?!
About the hair– I washed and styled my hair on the evening of July 31st. I set my soaking wet hair on 35 or so CurlFormers (using Salerm 21 leave-in and Argan/Castor oil) to stretch it out and the next morning removed the curlers and made 10-11 chunky twists using a little Qhemet Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee. I wore the twists all that week, and finally, the night before the CN event on Saturday, re-moisturized with the Ghee and set the ends on skinny flexi-rods. The next morning I removed the rollers, took down the twists, and applied a thin layer of Aveda Anti-Humectant Pomade.
It was humid as hell, and my hair held up well, even after the quick ride in the drop top! It lost all semblance of a Twist-n-Curl after spending an hour with hubby, OUTSIDE, at his class reunion. I then proceeded to rock a curly fro to the After Party… we had too much fun. Didn’t get home until 3am… after a stop at White Castles.
The next morning (no hangover, aren’t you proud?!), for the picnic, my hair was jacked, so I pulled it back into a cute, care-free puff. I plan to detangle and re-twist in the next couple of hours.
About the look– I like to think of outfits in terms of themes. Hubby had the idea that I should rock out like Kanye (LOVE him)… all white, with a gold chain. I did just that! I ordered the T-shirt, belt, and capris from Express, and borrowed the chain/giraffe head from a friend. She bought it in Dubai! The shoes… the shoes. LAWDY! I have an event in LA next weekend and you best believe them Lous will be blessing my feet that night too!
