Three Different Top Knot Tutorials.

photo 5-2

I get pretty bored with the same hairstyle so I always like to switch it up but I could not live with out top knots.  I know that sounds dramatic but it is true. You see I only wash my hair once a week the first day of the week I either curl it or straighten it and that will hold up nicely for about four days.  The rest of the week I throw my hair up in top knots.  Since top knots are such a huge part of my life I had to get a little variety so I have three common top knots that I do.  They vary from refined to messy. Like I said I love doing top knots when my hair is dirty that way I get the volume and mess I am usually looking for.  I only wash my hair once week because well it doesn’t get greasy so I don’t need to and I do not think it is healthy to constantly wash your hair.  We have natural oils in our hair that take of it and the chemicals in shampoo/condition cause those oils to be dependent on your hair products. I love to be as natural as possible and I’ll do what I can to not allow my body to be dependent on something. Okay that was a tangent back to top knots.  I have a tutorial for each one of these top knots on youtube, ill attach the link below.

Get A Head To Toe Outfit For Under $60, Accessories Included!

photo 3-5 Hey guys, My post is dedicated to those days when you are dying for a new outfit but do not want to break the bank.  I was able to get this entire outfit for under sixty dollars including the boots, purse, and jewelry! And what makes this even better is I got it all from one store. Can you believe it? A one stop shop for a stunning outfit and your wallet is still full.  I could not  believe the great items I found at the price they were at. I know the anticipation is killing you and you want to know where this mystery shop is, well it is probably at your local shopping mall and the store is called….. Charlotte Russe! You may be surprised because this is a well known shop and I think sometimes overlooked but they always have the best deals on shoes and jewelry and they always have a sale rack.  I love this store because it is not expensive and I always find quality items, like for example this leather jacket.  I saw this same jacket somewhere else for ten times the price, I am not exaggerating.  I got this leather Jacket for for $12!  Sometimes it’s nice to get a few quality items at bargain of a price. Next time you’re out an about stop by the Charlotte Russe and see what you find! XOXO, JENESSA
