Synthetic Dreadlocks and IMATS LA!


SO now onto the second part of my hair journey...LOL! I removed my extensions a few weeks ago and  I had my revamped synthetic dreads braided in again! I revamped most of them by braiding a thinner piece around them, I made a few longer double ended ones, blended purple and black for others and made a few fluffy popcorn double ended dreads.

I had Solah from Blessed Locks braid them in for me. I am not sure how many we installed, but it's a mix of doubles and singles. We had a good time watching So You Think You Can Dance episodes, listening to music and chatting. She had a great time composing the deliberate random combination of dreads.

Sedona Lace Vortex Professional Makeup Brushes


A few weeks ago Sedona Lace (SL) contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out their new Vortex Professional Brush Set and I enthusiastically accepted because I was drooling over them for a few months, but I've been on a forced brush buying hiatus.  I chose the set with the zipper brush belt.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Vortex set, it was developed with the help of beauty blogger/vlogger/MUA/MBA student MakeupByRenRen. AND we just happen to share a lot of the same brush preferences.

The brush set consists of 13 brushes and a brush belt for $79.95, which is a VERY good price. I used the brushes exclusively for 2 weeks straight (with the except of an angled contour brush). All the ferrules are double crimped and the handles have a nice weight/length to them.
