Greetings from my school!

Before I left this week for my grad photo shoot and meeting with my professor about the latest phase of my dissertation, I (finally) got my much-needed overdue haircut a week ago ~ one step closer to chopping off way more length to donate after I become Doctor!

Beauty Tuesday: From Head to Toe ~ Year-Round Hair Care & Summer Happy Feet Tips

Restore your hair💁🏻 and keep your feet👣 in tip-top shape this season! 

Head’s Start: Our Hair💁🏻 

Dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim

Effortless look: Hair up (yet always time to take hair down [more to follow below]) * flawless make-up * statement dress Impress = Success #DISPObustAFlow

💁🏻Any hair breakage or loss probs? Look no further; Dr. Oz😷 and yours truly to the rescue!

As someone who’s had healthy hair and has attempted to revitalize it after chemically-treating it (color and curl), I swear by coconut oil and now Marvelous Oil to moisturize it!

💁🏻On 📺The Dr. Oz Show, a professional guest who appeared introduced a pre-treatment

*Pre-Poo ~ comb through approximately 20 minutes before shampooing💆🏻

  • Thin Hair: Coconut
  • Medium: Ampro
  • Thick: Castor

👦🏻Now as someone who’s been more self-conscious about receding hairlines, I’m all about this

Thinning Hair Breakthrough

*Color Powder ~ hides bald spots and grays👴🏽

I personally use the dry shampoo from my Birthday Birchbox to cover up

*Change the part to cover the spots👸🏻

➕Plus, I’d like to pony … I mean, point out the obvious (thanks, auto-correct/subliminal message in my subconscious):

🚫DON’T always pull your hair back in tight buns🍘 or ponytails🐴

👧🏻It may be common sense that these up-dos tend to impose damage on hair follicles, as well as loosening from the scalp. However, for some of us who have long 💇🏼hair, we need to wear our hair up for daily activities (i.e., work, workout) to keep it away from our face.

👧🏻Just like our diets, we may wish to consider that our hairstyles🙆🏽 (chemicals, heat, etc.) must be done in moderation to prevent long-term effects, like losing it. #YOLO

Finish with Our Feet👣

Boots

Now that we’ve hit more ☼sunshine☼ past our lingering snowy & rainy seasons, I’m storing my boots at the very top tier of my dress/accessory closet, but they’re still easy to access if I occasionally need them!

👣I read this article that addressed how to exercise good foot and shoe hygiene, especially with the sweat that accompanies the summer heat. It reminds me of how I adopted a practice from my AF wife bestie, who’d at the very least wash her feet before bed (especially after a ladies’ night full of dancing at the club) ~ that way, we don’t stink up our bedtime sheets and wake up with the stench in the air!

👣Similarly, our shoes👟 ~ especially those open-toed ones (flats, flip flops, sandals, stilettos) that we don’t wear with socks ~ need loving too! When I’d work at shoe stores during h.s. and college, I’d always stock up on mint balls to freshen up my footwear. Due to some stains on the insides of our shoes actually coming from dead skin, we must clean and spray those off (I typically pre-treat them with water repellent to prevent marks)! Also, upon removing those shoes, I go back to the above guideline: wash my feet!

🌅Since I’m about to teach my ☼summer☼ speech class about **persuasive speaking, I’ve used two types of testimonies to sway you:

Summer Stylin'

♪We Never Go Out of Style♫ This season/teaching session, my VS ☼Summer☼ ♥Love♥ tote holds my textbook + M•A•C HK cosmetics bag

  • Expert Testimony ~ Dr. Oz and his guests as the specialists in their respective fields
  • Lay/Peer Testimony ~ I’m just an average joe who can show how these have worked for me!
M•A•C for Class

… to store my Dry-Erase Board Markers & Cleaner!

🎊Birthday🎉 & 🍎Back-to-School🍏!!!

Last week (or shall I say, two weeks before then to include three full weeks), I rang in my BiG 3-3 and prepared to teach in my hometown this fall ~ after over five years of teaching in South Texas. Therefore, I had to get a minor makeover!

First, Evie‘s mom Maggie cut and curled my hair (as seen with A&A).

Then Dee and I celebrated together, and she added to my wardrobe👗!

Don’t Dee & I look hot in our maxi dresses?

On my actual Bday, we curled our hair!

Speaking of Dee, don’t she, Lisa and I all look fabulous as the August Birthday Baby Beauties💁?

Love ’em like Sisters!

& of course, now that I’m exactly half my mom‘s age (she was my age when she gave birth to me), here’s an indicator of how I may look like when I’m double my age!

Good timing that Back-to-School was yesterday, due to my beauty gifts from Nanay & Sis!
