Chi-Town

From LA to The Bay & From Oak-Town to Chi-Town

It’s about that time to make a move … soon. After graduation (May 2014), I will be embarking on a new journey to Chicago. Every time I tell someone I want to move to Chicago, I get the same question: Why?

The neighborhood of Lakeview, in Chicago, is now one of the most fashionable places to live in Chicago. The fashion scene is up and coming, and I want to be there in the beginning. I want to get my foot in the door, and build my resume. Why not start there? I feel like it’s so cliché to move to New York, and I definitely DO NOT want to move back home to Los Angeles.

I am already looking at internships, places to live, and jobs. In the mean time, do you guys have any suggestions? Different places to live, fashionable places to work?

Let me know how y’all feel!

What Up, Wednesday?

IMG_4008It’s Wednesday, so I’ve co-washed my hair and styled it new.  I used Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner to co-wash and my Shea Moisture products to style it. I wanted to define my curls in a different way using Peeks Flexi Rod Curls Tutorial as inspiration. I didn’t follow her tutorial fully, I didn’t have freshly washed (shampoo, conditioner, the whole nine) hair, it was co-washed. I didn’t blow dry my hair because I don’t like putting heat in my hair. And also, I didn’t feel the need to.

Her curls came out so defined, and I loved it. My curls on the other hand, came out on the ends, but not so much towards the root. It looked more like an afro, than a curly fro. Next time, I might try something a bit different, but still no heat. Maybe, smaller perm rods.

Everyone else loved it. I couldn’t walk 100 yards without a compliment. So thank you Peeks!

What do y’all think? Let me know if you try it!
