To start our morning off today, Taylor and I decided we needed a coffee fix, so we headed on down to our favorite local spot. The menu there is overwhelming because there are just so many awesome options to choose from. Not only are the drinks delightful but the atmosphere is incredible. When I walk in, I feel a sense of comfort and peace; super eclectic if you will. Taylor and I decided to skip out on coffee and go for a matcha (green tea) latte, which may I add was PHENOMENAL. I love matcha for it’s amazing health benefits. You should definitely look them up sometime.
As Taylor and I received our drinks , we decided to take them outside to the coffee shops deck. It was a beautiful overcast day. I know that may sound strange to some of you, but a lot of the time , these are the days that make me the happiest. I decided to dress casual and comfy. I wore a pair of worn out jeans, a Ramones tee with a black cropped jacket , a burgundy scarf ( in which I made myself) and combat boots to throw it all together. I had a lot of girls asking me today what curling iron I used on my hair to achieve the look that I did. I used a 1 1/2 ceramic curling iron by Revlon.
The only products I use are TREsemme Thermal Creations as a heat protectant and garnier fructis marvelous oil. WHICH may I add is the ONLY oil that I have ever found to fully saturate and maintain / manage my frizz all day! I am very impressed with that product. My hair is fortunately naturally curly, so I don’t really have to worry about hairspray and IF I ever use anything I only use One N’ Only Argan Oil Volume hair spray- which is mainly a spray to help maintain frizz and protect your hair from the humidity. I am TOTALLY against hairspray otherwise. I don’t think people realize how damaging it is to their hair. All in all , it was another lovely day spent with my darling sister.
Yesterday, I attended my very first tea party. First, I was a little nervous because I had no idea what people wear to such things! But I thought a little chiffon and lace would never hurt. It was very hot yesterday so that’s all that was perfect , light and very breezy. My outfit is from Charlotte Russe and I believe I bought it about a year back . The shoes I borrowed from my mother-in-law and we got the garden hat from a yard sale for I believe two dollars! I love yard sales. But AnyWho, I did pretty simple, light make up. I used some light browns , Skipped the eyeliner (which I never tend to wear anymore) Applied my falsies, and made sure that my contouring was bold. I think that falsies and nice contouring really does make or break your makeup, or at least, it is what stands out the most. I decided to embrace my natural curls and go for a very nude lipstick. I had a lot of fun with this look. Super easy, lightweight and comfortable! The tea party was an absolute success!
When I arrived, I had my own little place setting with my own name card!
Not to mention, the food was outstanding!
I’m very happy and blessed that I got to spend the day with some of God’s girls whom I love dearly!
After studying up on all the benefits of tea, I’ve decided to kick coffee to the curb and try it out ! This morning I am just having some black tea with a touch of milk and pinch of sugar. Delish! Black tea is the most caffeinated. I feel energized already!
