Happy Wednesday! Here is video I took of Toro Y Moi performing New Beat at last Thursday's Valentine's day show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (please forgive the first few seconds of blurriness).

|Living Proof Prime Style Extenders- Biggie Shorty|
Prime Style Extender is a weightless creme that detangles and repels humidity and environmental hair destroyers while smoothing your hair and locking in moisture and provides shine. All this without the aid of silicone. Its OFPMA miracle molecule is truly a miracle- let me tell share my experience with this amazing product.
I anticipated Prime Style Extender sample in my January Man Repeller x Glossybox but my box came about a month late (I will save the story for another time) so I ended up picking up the 5.0 fl oz full-size from life-saving Sephora. When I did get home, lo and behold I received my Man Repeller x Glossybox and the 1 fl oz. sample was in the box. On my next wash day, pre-styling, I applied a quarter-sized amount of primer and distributed through my tightly curled hair. Next I detangled with a wide-tooth comb and then applied coconut oil and blow dried my hair on a low setting. The results were fantastic! My hair was easy to manage, weightless and had a pleasant smell. I kept my blow-dried tresses for one week, intermittently applying my coconut oil every 3-4 days. My ponytailed style stayed in place during a snowstorm and fashion week.
For the whole week I kept thinking, "How is this possible?" Repels humidity but locks in moisture annndd allows me to moisturize my hair? A++++
For natural, curly, kinky haired girls who want the benefits of easier detangling, no humidity and no silicone and a great base for pre-heat styling, Prime Style Extender is the way to go. This time I just blowdried my hair but next time, I will definitely add this product to my regimen the next time I flat iron my hair. Bliss all-around!

|Rodarte Fall 2013 nails- photo from Allure.com|
Colors used: Chanel Beige, Diwali and Graphite.
Other products used: Toothpick, a napkin and Sephora OPI 3-in-1base, top and strengthener.
Simple Steps: I first used the Sephora OPI Base then used Chanel Beige. After the Beige dried I placed a small pea-sized amount of Diwali on a napkin and dipped the toothpick in the color. Next, lightly press Diwali onto your Beige just at the top of your nail. Next, do the same step with Graphite but use the other side of the toothpick ( or another pick if yours is one sided). When nail is dry, coat with clear base. Voila!

|Final walk through- HACHE Fall 2013 NYFW|
|Jasmine Tookes- HACHE Fall 2013|
|Overcoats and beanies at HACHE Fall 2013 NYFW|
The hair channeled next day, slept-in chic with pieces that look windswept yet kept under beanies.
Neoprene, leather, and velour were at the heart of HACHE's aesthetic mixing menswear inspiration (Striped shirt, striped pants, biker jacket in embossed neoprene) and a laisse-fair comfort uniform (jacquard sweatshirt, popeline shirt and quilted pants). The accessories included fuzzy pastel pink and yellow envelope clutches, wide strap slip on sandals and of course beanies.
This collection definitely reminded me of home and I loved it, I think I'll channel '94 and pick up a beanie and jump back into '13 for a fuzzy pastel clutch.
BONUS: I was backstage and ran into my favorite model Jasmine Tookes! She was so nice to let me take a picture of her look from the HACHE show. Thank you so much for your kindness and graciousness!!

|Chanel Frivole Blush used in the Spring 2013 Couture Show|
|Chanel Spring 2013 Frivole #76 Blush|
|No makeup, just blush ( Chanel Frivole #76) and keep this on the hush..|
Its another Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux de Chanel review guys! So along with La Favorite RAV, I also picked up the Joues Contraste Frivole Powder blush! Can I just say that I LOVE this blush! A little goes a long way, the color is a dense coral and is impactful not chalky and dull. I actually like to wear this tout seul, in the wild just like my swatch pic!
I was also excited to see that Frivole Blush was used in Peter Phillips' Chanel Spring 2013 Couture look this week! Now if only I could get a hold of the new Stylo Eyeshadow in Black Stream..
