I am petite, thin, skinny however you want to say it, I choose to embrace the skin I am in! It’s hard for me to follow the “new” trends since my body type doesn’t fit into everything. However I have had these knee high Shoedazzle boots for 2 years now and have never worn them.. particularly because the calf part was too big for my leg.. so I made it work.. Since 2 years ago I have gained a couple pounds and I used my handy leg warms to help fill up the empty space 🙂 hey a girl has to learn how to work it!

I paired these burgundy mixed media boots with a simple skinny soho jean from New York & Company and of couple a complimentary matching Eva Mendes turtle neck. To top off this look I added a neutral with my camel pea-coat that I thrifted and my favorite plaid blanket scarf!

This outfit was simple cute and sexy all at the same time! Xox Happy Fashion Divas!

Super Defined Curls Using Flexi Rods

Divas,

So my hair has gone flat and the humidity got to my hair from all of the Hot Atlanta Heat! So I decided to add some curl body and bounce to my hair. Flexi Rods are a great way to add curl and definition to your hair. I will be showing you how to get a super defined curl using flexi rods.

Products & tools

  • Comb
  • Hood Dryer (you can also air dry your hair, its totally up to you!)
  • Lotta Body setting lotion
  • Spray bottle
  • Hair clips
  • Flexi rods
  • Oil of your choice

Tip: Pout 2 parts water and 2 parts Lotta Body into the spray bottle. This dilutes the Lotta Body since its very thick. it allows you hair to dry faster.

Step 1: make sure your hair is detangled make a part in the front of your hair. this is totally up to you.

Step 2: make a part in the back of your hair. Clip the rest of your hair up and away. divide that part into sections.

Step 3: Spary the Lotta Body onto one of the sections. Now take your flexi rod and begin wrapping the hair around the rod form the bottom. when you wrap your hair around the rod do a 360 degree turn and twist on the rod. (please view my video for more instructions)

Step 4: Repeat all over your hair. Sit under the hooded dryer or air dry. I ended up sitting under the hooded dryer but then I fell asleep.

Step 5: Untwist your hair off the rod. Once all the rods are out of your hair, add oil to your fingers and run all over your hair. The oil helps reduce frizz.

Step 6: Divide curls into smaller strands. make sure to separate each curl gently and curl it around your finger.
