Just Kick It

Kick off your shoes and relax your feet.. party on down this…. Xscape beat.. “Just Kick It” That is one of my favorite Xscape songs from the 90’s! The weekend is all about being cute and comfortable. Plaid and vests are always a perfect pair. Hailing from my once favorite but no longer store The Limited, I paired this look together with my simple black leggings and open lace booties. Topping this “fit” off with my leather hat and a polka dot Betsey Johnson book bag. It’s its just that simple! It has enough color and print to make this weekend look perfect for just kicking it.

If Items are not available I will leave links to a similar look!

Martino Cartier Flat Iron Review

Divas,

Have you been searching for the perfect flat-iron?? Well I have found it!! Finally after searching for years for  good flat-iron, this martini Cartier Flat iron has replaced my ceramic flat-iron that broke years ago. I have fried, heat damaged my hair trying to get my hair straight. In all honesty if you have natural hair like me.. you hair can get bone straight ad will possibly only stay straight for about a week minus the humidity! This flat iron was purchased for $50 during the on TV ad special promotion. It is online at HSN.com for $119.00 So with all of that being said I introduce to you the Martino Cartier Flat Iron.

How it worked on my hair?

Ladies if you didn’t know I have natural hair that natural waves, and curls. I did add any oil or other products to my hair besides a heat protectant when I blow dried my hair. So as you can see I my hair is blow dried out.

I tried the one pass test with using a chunky piece of hair. Now for black women usually the smaller and thinner the hair is you will obtain better smoother and straighter results. This is my thick piece of hair.

This was my results from only going through my hair one time. I was highly shocked to see such great results. When I saw martini do this on TV I was shocked and was like okay I must try this!

However I still went ahead and did a second pass and curled my hair while straightening it. I have never achieved such great results without using the chase method or any type of oils. This flat-iron left my hair shiny full of body and bounce.

My Favorite feature

This flat-iron is gold titanium plated and the plates tilt in the direction you are flat ironing your hair. this is a great feature when you are curling your hair. It makes the hair glide easily when turning your hair to curl it!
