Fitted jackets are always a great way to dress up or to dress down. If you're looking for a clean classic look a fitte jacket is great to throw over any great outfit. Try them in colours to it's alot of fun to try a new look, you'll be surprise how much it works for you.
Neutral Coat: This classic can go with anything in your closet and your bound to find on at a great price. There are so many styles and varations to coats now that you can be classic and timeless or just fun and funky.
Christian Louboutin Suede Boots go forabout 215$. You can find a pair like these at stores like aldo, le chateau and many other carry the variations of these.
When it comes to winter and fall, I must admit I have an obsession for tal boots around this time. I enjoy wearing them and try different colour and styles to ompliment my outfit. They never go out of style and you can always pull them back out and wer them again. It just make sense to have tall boots because you can pair them with anything from jeans to even a dress.
Accessories can make any outfit stand out. Pearls are a great way to keep a classic more structured look elegant. You can try black pearls, grey or your classic colour. I really love the way they layered the pearls.
this bag is by gucci a great piece These are from Christian Dior
and the colour is so beautiful
If you want something more affordable try aldo, forever21, H&M. They carry different styles nd variations and the pric is reasonable ranging from 19$ and up, if there is a sale sometimes even less.
Whether they are leather or just anything the caugth your bags these can carry from summer to fall. A great bag is a timeless piece and can compliment any outfit. I love bags and enjoy something different and something unique, so i tend to search high and low for new pieces to add to my wardrobe.

I do not recommend using adhesive on your hair personally however many do use it. This is done by applying adhesive to the natural hair near the scalp. This can be very harmful to your natural hair, and you may be allergic to some adhesive. Make sure to test any chemical you use before apply to your scalp on a small patch of skin. I would advise you have your bonded weave remove by a professional to avoid and damage. Fusion weaves are done using hot wax, I have not tried this method but this does give your hair a more natural look, because your hair appears to be growing from the scalp.

What is Ph Balance?
Ph. Balance is a measure of the acidity of a solution. Solutions with a ph. less than 7 are said to be acidic anything greater is basic or alkaline.
Ph Balance and Natural Hair
The weather is changing again so if you’re paying close attention you will notice that for some of you your hair maybe taking a while to adjust to the change in temperatures. Our hair may also take time to adjust to the change in products as many of us may change the way we treat our hair as the temperature changes. The temperature change can make your hair too dry or too oily. Once you understand your hair it is quite simply to restore your hairs natural ph level.
Our hair secretes natural oil called sebum, which I have express is very important in our skin care and hair care from previous articles. Sebum is what maintains the moisture and balance in our hair. The hairs natural ph. balance is between 4.5 and 5.5. I have stress paying close attention to your hair because once you do this you are able to determine which products is right for your hair type. The ph scale ranges from 0 (strongly acidic) to 14 (strongly alkaline).
If you are using products like shampoos that have a high ph level, then you are stripping your hair of its natural essential oil. This allows our hair to become dry, prone to breakage and further damage.
- If you would like to know ph level of your products here is a test: test your products ph. strips, if your shampoo is a 4, your conditioner a 5 and your leave in a 5, add the numbers together (14) and divide by 3 you will get 4.6. Keep in mind that the hair natural oil has a ph. of 4.5 -5, that is your goal.
- Add Apple cider vinegar into your regimen to restore a smooth, stronger look and feel of your hair, ACV will restore the hairs ph. balance.
- Dilute your shampoo with water so it does not strip your hair
- Remember a slightly high ph level in a shampoo can act as a clarify to remove product build up. A low ph level will condition the hair.
What to know
Rinsing your hair with a product to restore ph balance will close the cuticles and protect the hair shaft. This will leave the hair with a smooth surface, shiny hair, and easier to manage.
- ACV does have a slight vinegar smell when rinsing, this will disappear after your hair has dried
- Prepare your own ready to use mix and keep it in the spray bottle, use about 1/3 to a cup of ACV and mix with water.
- The amount all depends on the length of your hair and build-up, do not use to much ACV
- Rinse with ACV after you shampoo.
- ACV can be used once or twice a week.
