Gala Celebration

9 Apr

Lovelies,

I had the pleasure of attending the UFE Gala which celebrates all accountants who have passed their UFE exam and achieved their CA (chartered accountancy). My best friend Lori passed and had asked me to be her plus one! I was honoured! It was such a great night, meeting new people, eating great food and they also had a band perform! It was glamorous to say the least! I honestly wish I had more formal nights to dress up for! They’re so much fun 🙂

Ps. Are you all loving my extensions? Think I’m going to cut a few inches off, what do you think?

Lovelies,

Well it’s about that time again! You see I have many repeated phases such as obsessing over my makeup, shoes, clothes, etc and I’m back at obsessing over my hair. Have any of you worn hair extensions?

You see it all started when I began to straighten my hair nonstop. My hair is naturally curly, but I can’t stand wearing it curly. It gets poofy, frizzy and just plain difficult to work with. So I’ve been straightening my hair since I was fifteen years old. Eight years of heat damage to my hair!

Now I’ve tried to care for my hair so I can allow it to grow long and strong. I’ve done it all from healthy diets, taking fish oil pills, deep conditioning, less brushing of strands, etc. But at this point, I don’t think my hair is going to grow to long lengths anytime soon especially if I don’t stop with the heat, and that is not happening period.

So I’ve resulted to hair extensions. Now I’ve done hair extensions in the past, like I said I go through ‘repeated phases’. I’ve done clip ins and have sewed in hair extensions and let me tell you, I will never do sew in extensions ever again! When I had those extensions removed, it basically thinned my hair because so much fell out!

I’ve been debating about fusions and clip in’s but this time it’s not just going to be human hair, but REMY human hair; The best thick, long, and shiny hair there is! So I’ve got two options in mind.

1) Doll Bar Inc. – It’s a hair salon that only focuses on hair extensions.

2)Luxy Hair Extensions – Online shop that specializes in clip in hair extensions.

Now after long debate over the two I’ve decided clip- ins would probably be best because I know every time I wash my hair those fusion extensions will loosen up and I don’t have the time or money to go back to the salon to tighten them every time this happens. And frankly, hair extensions can get quite irritating at times so with clip ins, I can remove them all the time; when I’m showering, hanging out at home, before going to bed, etc. Plus after going on Luxy Hair extensions website, I can’t wait to wear their clips. The two sisters, Mimi and Leyla who created the brand are a) beautiful b) so helpful! They have great YouTube videos where they show you how to put on the clips, care for them, wash them and a bunch of hair styles you can do with the clip ins! I am completely convinced that the clips will be amazing! I’ll keep you all posted on my progress once I’ve received them!
