Celebrate National Lipstick Day With Avon!

Hello Nubians,

Photos via Avon

It's #NationalLipstickDay! Hurray! Ha. Honestly, Let's face it... What is National Lipstick Day really? I just think it's a fun day to look through my favorite lipsticks and take photos for my social media channels. 

Avon has some pretty nice lipsticks I've collected over the years. They're also trying to add a little fun to National Lipstick Day. 

In honor of National Lipstick Day, Avon is sharing a Lipstick personality quiz – a series of seven questions designed to help you identify the perfect lip shade for you. And, just in time to celebrate, Avon’s newest launch – Beyond Color Plumping Lip Color SPF 15 – available in ten full color shades, for any and every lip personality.

Pretty awesome right? I took the quiz and my results were "The Life of The Party" and my lip shade is Poppy Pink, which to be quite honest is pretty spot on. The quiz has a lot of fun, cute question so I suggest you all stop by and take it HERE. 

Pucker up! Cheers my darlings!

How To: Ion Lavender Hair Dye.

Hello My Dear Nubians,

I am what some of you may define as a hair freak. I am never satisfied with my hair. Because I am never satisfied, I am constantly changing the color which also means constantly bleaching (catches breath). My hair has dried out a lot so I decided to give it a bleach break. Giving my hair a bleach break also meant letting my roots grow out... ALOT.

I let me roots grow out so much in fact, that people thought I had some sort of ombre or dyed my hair this way on purpose ha ha, pretty funny right? I decided the best route to go because of my bipolarness and hair boredom was semi-permanent colors. I've tried Manic Panic a few times, and though I like Manic Panic, some of the colors bleed out a lot. Thus I turned to Ion Semi Permanent dye.

Watch my video below for a quick tutorial on how I applied the color. It's SooOoooOoo easy. A lot of people get intimidated when applying color but remember this is semi permanent! How bad can you mess up? Besides, Ion also sells a solution to get the dye out of your hair which you can purchase online or at Sally Beauty store.

Some Tips To Maintain Semi-Permanent Dye

*Avoid too much conditioner
*Avoid pool water (chlorine)
*Wash hair with cold water

Another cool trick you can do is that if you MUST apply conditioner, keep an extra bottle of the Ion dye handy. This way when you apply the conditioner, mix it with the ion hair dye! You'll be retouching your color and moisturizing your hair at the same time... BOOM!

Chihuahua Momma: The Dog Loves Of My Life.

Hey Nubians,

Have You Ever Heard Of Crazy Cat Ladies? Well I'm A Crazy Chihuahua Momma.

If you've ever wondered what I like to do besides put awesome outfits together and geek out from time to time, well... I'm obsessed with my Chihuahua dogs. I think they're one of the cutest dog breeds out there. To me, they're the cutest. They're so small and peculiar. They kind of look like little aliens or little gremlins. So Kawaii! I spend as much time with them as possible. I also like to draw them on my spare time and love photographing them too. You could check out their instagram @BambiAndNala

Bambi is the brown one and Nala is the white one with brown spots all over the place. I'd like to think I rescued Bambi in a way because I purchased her from a lady in Dominican Republic for $50 bucks who needed to get rid of some dogs. Dominican Republic has SO MANY abandoned dogs on the streets, it' heartbreaking. I was looking for a Chihuahua at the time and I felt like I could give her an amazing home. I got all her shots done and flew her back to NY with me. I purchased Nala from a couple in Las Vegas who also couldn't keep her. She is a Chihuahua mixed with a Jack Russell Terrier which is why she is CRAZY energetic. I love having them together because Nala pushes Bambi to be more active and exercise. Bambi is a little over 5 years and Nala is a little over 1 year old.

Sister love.

Bambi and Nala get a long very well now. They play fight all day, it's funny and cute. A regular day of me and my babies consist of me waking up, making sure they have fresh water and hard food available to them through out the day. Then I make sure to give them appropriate portions of wet food twice throughout the day. I also walk them where there's a lot of grass so they can smell things and exercise. Whenever I'm home they love to cuddle next to me while I'm working or watching TV. They also love the warmth! Laying under pillow and blankets is one of their favorite things to do.

I also find it funny that most chihuahuas think they're so much bigger than they are. They are VERY protective of their owners and even though they are small, they act like they're Pitbull's. They act very tough and never back down. Total napoleon complex. I'm still working on correcting some of their behavior. I take a lot of tips from The Dog Whisperer and some of his tricks work very well. 

Super Bambi

Nap time together

Got a secret can you keep it?

Rough day at the office. 

A rose by any other name...

Bath time.

At the end of the day my chihuahuas make the best companions and I love them so, so very much. They bring so much joy to my life and I find qualities in them I still can't find in some people. 

I've never been attracted to cats. A lot of that probably has to do with the fact that I'm highly allergic to them. So allergic in fact that if I'm around one for too long I'll probably pass out. I do enjoy watching an occasional funny cat video though... I think they're pretty funny critters. 

Are you a dog or cat person?
