Tai’s Favorite Oils

If you’re a kinky-curly natural girl like myself, you use a lot of oils. Not only do I use oil in my hair, but I use some oils for moisturizing my skin and for cooking. This past month, I have either purchased or received* some amazing oils to meet all of these needs. Here are some of my favorites and how I use them.  Continue reading “Tai’s Favorite Oils”

Demo: How I Straighten My Natural Kinky, Curly 4A Hair

In this video, I am taming my mane with the assistance of two heat-styling tools I recently purchased. I used the Infiniti Pro by Conair Hair Designer 3-in-1 Styling System with One ‘n Only Argan Oil Strip to blow dry and the Hair Art H3000 to flat iron.

Product Review: Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus

I have a lot going on. Not only do I run this blog, but I also run a photography business. As you could imagine, I have a lot of things to protect. I typically use an antivirus program to protect my assets, identity, and client files. While my little one is just a baby, antivirus software can also help tremendously with keeping children safe from the dangers of the Internet.

I was recently sent a free download of Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus for MacOS. Webroot Antivirus protects you from online threats, which keeps you safe no matter how or where you connect. It scans fast, uses fewer system resources, and protects you by instantly identifying and blocking new threats as soon as they appear. The scan is completely done in less than two minutes! The program analyzes files, phishing sites, malicious web pages, IP addresses, and mobile apps providing a real time view of current threats and enabling instantaneous protection from new infections. 

I’ve had a short time to review this product, but so far, I’m satisfied. I am relieved to not have to worry about this aspect of protecting my business. If you’d like to give Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus a try, it may be purchased here. Stay tuned for a Webroot sponsored giveaway around the holidays!

My Updated Skincare Routine

Skincare is super important to me. Although I care deeply about my skincare, I don’t have a lot of time to worry about it. I have to get through my skincare AND daily makeup routine in less than 10 minutes. In case you’re curious, here’s exactly what I use: Continue reading “My Updated Skincare Routine”

You Can Have Soft Clothes Without Buying Fabric Softener

If you have an infant or young child like I do, fragrance-free solutions are important in your laundry routine. I am a fabric softener queen when it comes to everyone else’s laundry, but that’s not really a possibility for McNugget’s clothes. While on my search for ways to soften his clothes, I received my dryer balls from I-Gruv. Continue reading “You Can Have Soft Clothes Without Buying Fabric Softener”

Get Out of My Face! Styles to Keep Your Hair Tucked Away in the Heat

I’ve searched the internet for a few tutorials to share with you all. Some of these were requested by my followers, while others were styles I originally promised. Seeing that I have little quiet time to record videos these days (thanks to my baby dog), I decided to curate them. Here are a few updo tutorials that I absolutely love!

This high puff video was originally requested by Mary T.

I recently wore this style, as I often try Tynisha’s easy-peasy styles!

I just thought this style was lovely and romantic!

I tried this one, too! It reminds me of Queen Elsa’s coronation ‘do. Who doesn’t like Frozen?
