Nice Things From: Oh My Love London (#19)


Hello everyone! I haven't done a Nice Things From in a while, so today I stumbled on this website and wanted to share some cute items I found on it! One thing i'd have to say is that it is a pretty pricey website (at least in my opinion) but this might be great if you're looking for something fantastic to wear for a special event that you can wear again on other occasions.


1 // 2 // 3

4 // 5 // 6

7 // 8 // 9

My favorite of these is a tie between number 7 and number 3, so pretty! I hope you enjoyed this months Nice Things From, next month i'll be featuring another website so I hope you look forward to it! Since i'm on summer break i'm slowly getting back to blogging more frequently so I hope you're enjoying my posts and ones soon to come! Also, i've started using twitter! At the beginning I didn't really want to but then I thought it would be a good idea to get in touch with other bloggers. Follow me here if you'd like!  Have a wonderful day!

*Side Note: My Nice Things From posts are never sponsored, I like to make these posts for fun!

3 Products I Use To Style My Curly Hair


Hello everyone! I want to show you three products that I use to style my wild curly hair. You can find all of these products in stores like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, etc.




When my hair wants to be nice to me it ends up like above. Most days thanks to these products all I do is wake up, take my pony tail off, and shake my hair,  and i'm on my way.



The Not Your Mothers Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream costs around 4 to 6 dollars depending on where you buy it. A little bit of this goes a long way, I only add about a quarter or dime size of this on my hair so be careful not to add too much or it might weigh your hair down and feel greasy. It's infused with grape seed and jasmine extracts and the smell is pretty strong but I find that the smell lightens up once my hair dries completely.


My second product is Ren Pure Solutions Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner. Even though this is a conditioner, I use this as a leave-in and mix a bit with water in my hand. I tried it as a conditioner once and found that it does not work well to detangle my hair. This probably works well when detangling for those who have less textured hair. But on the bright side, it smells nice and feels great on my hair. This product cost around 7 dollars. I'm currently on the hunt for any product better than this one.


The final product is Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Moist. This product costs around 2 to 4 bucks i'd say. I like using this product as a leave-in conditioner. I run my fingers through my wet hair with this and I find that it helps with detangling my hair and avoiding frizz.

When I use these three products to style my hair i'm ready to go the next day. My curls are bouncy and defined, they are smooth and they smell great! I would like to say that although these products may work on my hair, they may or may not work on yours. It all depends on the type of hair you have, but it's worth a try!

Although I do love how these products feel and make my hair look, I am on the hunt for more natural hair products for my curly hair. Any suggestions?

THE AM AND PM ROUTINE TAG


Hello everyone! I saw this tag around and I thought it would be fun to do so lets begin! Send me a link down below if you have done this tag before, i'd love to read it!

AM

01 // Whats your morning beauty routine?
This depends on whether or not i'm in school. At the moment i'm on my summer break, so my routine consists of washing my face with my African Black Soap and then moisturizing my face with Aveeno Smart Essentials moisturizer. When i'm at school I do the same thing but apply mascara and i'm on my way.

02 //  Whats for breakfast?
I know it's bad, but on school days I either forget to eat breakfast or am in too much of a rush to stop and eat breakfast. During break, i'll make breakfast whatever time I wake up. I like to make toast with boiled egg or just anything I see.

03 // Coffee or tea?
I prefer tea over coffee, but I don't drink either of these in the morning. I drink water which is usually beside my bed.

04 // How long does it take you to get out the door?
I don't take long at all especially when I have classes, probably a max of 30 mins because of sleep. I prep everything like outfit and my bag the day before. If I have nothing to do that day, there's no getting me up.

05 // What is your go to makeup on a fuss free morning?
I don't really wear makeup honestly. I never know what i'm doing, I usually just go for mascara and on some days lipstick but that's about it.

PM

06 // What is your evening beauty routine?
I usually wash my face again with my African Black Soap and if i'm wearing mascara i'll take that off with my Aveeno moisturizer or lately i've been using coconut oil.

07 // Snack time! What in the bowl?
As much as i'd like to say something healthy, most of the time it's not. I'm working on it! Honestly, it's usually something pretty sweet.

08 // How do you wind down and prep before bed?
Before bed I like to clean up whatever mess I made throughout the day like clothes on my bed etc. I pick out my outfit for the next day if i'm going somewhere or have classes and I pack up my back if I have classes. I like to fix up my bed for bed and crawl in with my laptop or a book.

09 // Cozy up! What are you wearing to sleep?
I go for a comfy tshirt and usually basketball shorts or just comfy pj shorts. Sometimes just a big tshirt because i'm always hot and then I can't sleep.

10 // What are some things you must do before hitting the hay?
Like I said before, I have to choose my outfit and pack my bag. If I don't do this the night before, I feel disoriented and disorganized the next day.

Have you done this tag? Link it below if you have! What does your routine look like?

A PEEK INTO MY LIFE (APRIL)

Hello everyone! Here is this months little video for April. Hopefully this summer I will be able to use my camera more and have better footage. April was a pretty fun month, the best thing was my trip to Wahsington, D.C. which I actually made a post about (here). 

   

I'm finally on summer break and officially a Junior in University! Little by little becoming an adult and honestly it's kind of scary, wish me luck. But anyways, I hope you enjoy the video, many more to come! Have a wonderful day and watch out for my next post!
