My Week so Far!

Happy Thursday everybody! This week has been passing by quite fast & only one more day till the weekend. I am in desperate need of a new shellac mani, pedicure and eyebrow wax so THAT is what I will be doing this evening! 

Monday night, my friend Heather came over to take some professional pictures of my parents - they were so Michelle & Barack :)

Tuesday, my sister and I went to the Justin Bieber concert! No judgement from anymore please - I do really like him, but my sister is the HUGE fan! And she had never seen him in concert - he actually put on an amazing show - he is such a great singer and dancer AND he was sick! Poor thing! He was great! I could have done without the crazy screaming though!

I think I mentioned in my previous video that I just want to chop all my hair off and start from scratch. My hair has never been this damaged, dry or just BLAH. I used to have such long and luscious hair and now it is thin and literally has not grown in over a year even though I have trimmed it. My hair stylist told me over the weekend that the ends of my hair are not dry and damaged - they are actually BURNT! AH! He told me that I cannot be using heat tools every day :( I thought by just deep conditioning and using heat protectant would be okay but my hair is dead and I will be chopping like 3-4 inches on Saturday. But I am excited to cut it and start fresh. I have started using mane n'tail and have been taking biotin. He suggested blow drying my hair instead of heat styling it. I am just so bad at blow drying it, I really need to learn! Part of the reason of why my hair may be burnt is that I have been using an old blow dryer and I hadn't even thought of it until my mom asked me yesterday how old mine was. About 7 years old... yea. not OK. 

I ordered this today - Folica is the - literally! They always have codes and free shipping and I got a free 2 year warranty with it. This is the Sedu Revolution Pro Toirmaline Ionic 4000i - usually is $200 - Folica had it for 160 minus an additional 25% off and free shipping. My friend Erin has this and when I used it last time - I loved how my hair turned out! 

I can't wait to get it - in the meantime I will check out some blow dry tutorials!

I will definitely review it once I get it! 
Have a great Thursday everyone!


  1. Such a fancy hair dryer! Can't wait to hear if you like it! I keep hair dryer until they break, so I would be in the same boat as you. I wish I could blow dry my hair and it actually look good vs looking like I stuck my finger in an electric socket, ha!

  2. I just saw the Biebs concert two weeks ago and he was sick then too! It was a good show we just had to wait forever for him to finally come on stage. Your hair dryer lasted 7 years? Must have been a good one. Can't wait to see a pic of your new hair!

  3. jealous you got to go see JB!!! I saw Never Say Never just for fun and after that I really got a little Bieber Fever too!

    That sucks about your poor hair :( Yeah starting fresh sounds like the right thing to do. Something I do, at least on the weekends, is put it into a bun after I blow dry instead of heat styling. It makes my hair shiny/wavy (even though I'd prefer a flat iron any day). And good call on the new blow dryer! I never thought that could be a problem, but I guess it's more intense than just standing out in the wind HAHAH!

  4. I think the reason I could never go to a Biebs concert is due to the screaming! So much admiration for you gurlie! I like his new album now that he's "growing up".

    Your parents are fabulous!

  5. i have that blowdryer in pink!! It's amazing! love u!

  6. I love Folica. I use a cheapie travel hair dryer and have been contemplating upgrading. Can't wait for your review!
