Kimbretta – ” My Fashion”

Fashion 

Woo-Hoo!  I love fashion ‼️I believe fashion includes not only clothes and shoes, but also hair, nails and facial grooming.

“I have so many styles, I am a group”.

Like, I don’t have one way of dressing or one style I wear in my hair; me personally, I like to switch it up!  And I also tend to dress how I’m feeling at the time….so if it’s a chill, bum mood kind of day, I honor that sh!t by fully committing-Ball Cap over un-styled hair, sweats, old ratty tee shirt and flip flops. When I’m feeling bright and chipper, or cool and rhythmic, I typically honor those vibes with flowy maxi dress or skirt.  Jeans!  Jeans can be rocked any day and anytime, for any mood, dressed up or down.  MmmmKay!  I also love statement pieces;  the kind of clothing items that are memorable and unique.

I feel sexy no matter what I have on, so I don’t have a go to style for that.  You know what though, the one style that really makes me beam with pride and feel absolutely untouchable…is when I’m in Office Professional attire-That is by far my FavoriteBut the way this FL heat is set up, I ain’t just jumping into no slacks & blazers-all willy nilly…I don’t care how much I love it. 

Fashion is also my most favorite area in life to “push the envelope” or “break the rules”….by like not being so matchy-matchy or mixing opposite prints, like stripes and polka dots.  I love the edge of doing that.  However, LADIES, when it come to undergarments there are Rules that should NOT be broken.  HUGE pet peeve 👀to see a lady in a nice ensemble and then she passes and you see she has on the wrong underwear.  #EpicFail #FormerLingerieStoreEmployee

Shop with them at www.Hairfeenz.com

Had some questions for the Ceo Tamika V.

What made you want to be apart of the hair business?

Over the years I have spent a lot of money on hair extensions.  Being a female who suffers from Alopecia I have always been self-conscious of my hair.  After realizing how much money I had to spend to cover up my thinning hair, I decided I wanted to help others like me and those who really invest in their hair by being able to offer high grade quality human extensions at an affordable price.

How long did it take for you to get your brand off the ground?

I started my brand in 2015 and over the years I have worked hard at being able to provide the very best quality of 100% Human Extensions.  I tried many vendors before finding the vendors I work with for my product.  Being a person who is so familiar with extensions, I wanted to sample the different vendors myself to determine if the quality of the product was good.  It took a lot of time and money, but I am proud to say I have worked with the same vendors for the last 3 years.

Where did the name hairfeenz come from?

When I decided to launch a website, I wanted to get my best friend on board as a business partner.  He is a male so he really had no knowledge of hair extensions.  His neighborhood name is feen so when I came at him like “hey bestie we can call the business hairfeenz” He got super excited and jumped on board that same day.  Plus think about it… its really catchy LOL

Do you guys specialize in man pieces?

Unfortunately, we have not branched out to the men units yet, but I am, very excited about being able to offer male unites in the near future.

What do you feel about competition?

There is plenty of competition in the hair game and what I tell people is research pricing and read reviews to help determine the best products.  I feel we need competitors, so we can show the world what makes us different from others.

There are many hair vendors in the game, so I want to know why should they shop with Hairfeenz?

I’m passionate about hair because it has become such a big part of my life even before the business.  I’m the type of person who doesn’t feel at my best when my hair isn’t done.  I refuse to offer hair that I wouldn’t wear myself and I only wear the best of the best.  I feel the biggest competitor I face are stylist who also sell hair.  These stylists are able to install the hair and give you the overall look and that great, but I also tell people be mindful because a good stylist can make some terrible hair look great.  Its what they are trained to do.  I am not a stylist so what I share about my experiences with my brand and our quality is straight from the horse’s mouth.  I give it to you straight no chaser LOL.  Side note we are also one of the only sites to offer 6 different strands of hair (Brazilian, Filipino, Peruvian, Indian, Mongolian and Malaysian)

If you can have a celebrity to be the face of Hairfeenz who would it be?

OMG it would be my BFF Beyonce.  Ok fine she’s my BFF in my head, but I feel her beauty, class and grace mirrors what I see for my brand.  Hairfeenz is about quality and investing in yourself and I feel Beyonce has become an ICON not only for her talent but for her reputation of being an amazing human being.

What do you have coming up?

Well the relaunch of the site happened a few months ago and I just plan to work really hard on marketing.  We will possibly participate in some vendor events this summer and I will keep that info updated on social media.

Describe being the owner of Hairfeenz?

Its amazing to create a brand and it feels even better to nurture it.  I feel we have come a long way but I know we have a long way to go so I will say it is very exciting.

Where can they find you on social media?

The Quest Chronicles

It’s Tuesday, T-Quest Tuesday that is! I go by the name T-Quest & welcome to my world. Love, Life Music & More from MY perspective. I would like to thank Straight Official for having me apart of the team. As a blogger, I will be allowing you all into my world, my adventures, experiences & more. For those who are new to my world, let me give you an insight to who I am and what I’m about. I’m what you call  an overall entertainer! A music artist, party host, radio personality, comedian, fashion designer & the list goes on.

Being involved with many aspects of the entertainment industry, it allows me to not only be in the forefront but behind the scenes as well. If you’ve seen any music reality shows excusing the “scripted parts”, you would see that everything of the industry is not glitz and glam. Fans look up to us in admiration but tend to forget that we’re human too, Which means, we cry, get angry, have confrontations, stress and anxiety just like everybody else. We’re more relate-able than the average person may believe. For example, I personally feel fans get a better understanding and a more realistic love for celebrities  when they watch their “Behind The Music” specials, listen to certain radio interviews, watch biopics & read their auto-biography’s  because that gives celebrities the opportunity to connect with you and show a more vulnerable side once the camera is off, the mics are off and the wigs are off.

Imagine knowing your favorite music artist goes through the same pain you do. Imagine your celebrity crush having more in common with you than your best friend. Imagine your quirkiness and unique style is actually cool to the same people you look up to. Just because you see them on the tv, watch them in concert & hear them on the radio doesn’t make them that much different than the average person. Let’s make the connection.

As you take a QUEST through my world. You would read about my perspective on many topics.

LOVE: My favorite subject. From time to time, I will answer QUESTions from my fans about their relationships or lack there of and give my opinions only to help not to enable.

LIFE: It can be hard especially juggling the many dynamics of it but I am here to give advice & tips to make it easier. Whether it’s about family, finance, business, etc.We’re a village to let’s help one another.

Music: The true love of my life & a soft spot because this is not only my profession, it’s my passion, my escape & happiness. I love to help those coming up with me & make them aware of certain things they may have not been taught. This new generation is emulating social media & lacking true teachers to properly guide them the right way through this industry so here I am!

MORE: The most exciting portion of this blog because this section may be filled with fashion, radio, SEX & just imaginations running wild! Mature audience is advised! lol

Let’s have some fun together. Email me topics to discuss & QUESTions you may have. To learn more about me or to hear more about certain topics in dept please dowload my app “T-Quest” & visit my website GottaLoveMeWorld.com

This is the Ms Gotta Love Me herself, it’s T-Quest Tuesday & you’ve just best Questified!

Summer Pop: Glow All Season Long With These Highlighters

My favorite makeup look this summer has been very natural.

With the summer heat, sweat dripping down my face, and my pores more susceptible to being clogged, I’ve shied away from heavy products.

Thick day creams; I’m good on it.
Full coverage foundations; I think not!

Honestly most days, I just like a little mascara, some lip gloss, and a quick swipe of one of my favorite highlighters. It gives you the perfect “I’m confidently glowing in this sun and my skin poppin’ look” and spares you skin from unwanted breakouts.

So, after cleaning out my makeup and recognizing the slew of highlighters I own, I got the idea to pass along some of the best I’ve used to date for you all to add a bit to your collection.

 

Nars Illuminator (Orgasm)

COST: $30

I don’t have these highlighters in any specific order, but I think this subconsciously came first cause it was one of the first liquid highlighters I started using.

It’s so smooth, perfectly pigmented, and has an amazing smell. (Odd pro, but it really does smell like citrus.) My favorite part about this product is that you can layers it a bit. With a tiny dab, you can add a sheer illuminance to your skin, or use a thicker layer for a more noticeable pop!

 

 

 

Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter (Liquid Champagne)

COST: $9

So clearly there is a big difference in cost here. Mainly due to the fact that NARS is a high-end brand and even their smallest travel sized items are on the pricey side.

Yet, fun fact, Make Up Revolution is actually completely cruelty-free and most of their products are vegan! (This highlighter falls under that category, pretty cool right?!)

It comes with a cute dropper and is great not only as a highlighter but also as an additive to your foundation. I like mixing my foundation, a bit of Clinique’s Moisture Surge Moisturizer, and this together to create a tinted moisturizer with an added glow!

 

ColorFX Glitter Drops (Aurora)

COST: $44

This highlighter also comes with a dropper as an applicator and for good reason. Out of all of these highlights, this is hands down the most pigmented.

That can be a blessing and a curse. If used properly, you will look like a blossoming unicorn from the fairy forest, get too glitter happy and you will look like that unicorn’s sparkling poop walking around on two feet.

Again, you can use this as a highlight, an addition to your foundation, or even use it as a cute pop to your eyeshadow!

This product is also cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and vegan!

 

Milk Highlighter (Everyday Dewy Highlighter)

COST: $24

Vegan. Smooth. Moisturizing. Multi-use.

This product is good for any skin type and its ingredient list explains why it smells so yummy! Mango butter, coconut oil, avocado oil and other cruelty-free products were blended up for this light reflecting concoction.

You can use one easy swipe and add a subtle glow or layer it up for a more intense look.

This is the only highlighter on the list that isn’t liquid, so if you prefer an easy stick applicator, this is for you. Don’t forget what’s inside though, it emulsifies easily and blends well.

 

Out of all four, I would say:
-Milk is perfect for every day as advertised and looks great even on a fresh face with no other makeup.

-Revolution is a wonderful choice and being that it’s $9, it is a great deal. If you are looking for a cheap version of NARS grab this one, or even the liquid highlighter from NYX.

-NARS is a boujee brand people love so if you can afford it, get it. It is a wonderful quality and leaves behind a sheer luminance you will love.

-ColorFX the priciest, yet the product that will last the longest. I was nervous to purchase this, but even 2 months into using it I am not even halfway through. A little goes a long way.

I hope you guys glow all summer long, enjoy these suggestions, and comment below what your favorite highlighter is!

Make sure to check out my post from last week on my favorite Aveda products for the summer!

Top 3 Aveda Products Anyone Will Love

Hey Beauts!!

I know I have been gone for a while, but it was for a good reason, DON’T WORRY!!

For the past five months, I have been furthering my knowledge about skin care and attending Aveda Institute. Now that I have graduated, I decided to do a little dedication piece to their products, which I do unbiasedly love for the most part.

As you all know, or maybe don’t, all natural products stay near and true to my heart. I love creating my own stuff at home, it’s why I went to school in the first place, and although Aveda isn’t 100% natural, their products are close to it, produce results, and leave your skin glowing.

So, if you are looking to make your summer skin pop, add a lil glow, or just give your skin the attention it deserves, keep reading as I go over my top three favorite Aveda products! It also just so happens that together, these products work hand in hand. So feel free to grab all three and add a little pick me up to your at home regimen.

Liquid Exfoliant

My all-time favorite product in general, not just from Aveda, is this liquid exfoliant. Good for all skin types, this liquid exfoliant is gentle enough for sensitive skin, yet contains natural and powerful ingredients to target multiple skin problems that you may be facing.

Being that Aveda is on the natural side of things, most of this ingredients are just that. Their exfoliant contains wintergreen-derived salicylic acid which targets acne, dark spots, and so much more by not only turning over skin cells but minimizing your pores, revealing a smoother texture and even tone.

My favorite part about this product isn’t just it’s generic benefits, but the unconventional ways you can use it as well.

I’m not sure if you get waxed, but if you do, you know how pesky ingrown hairs can be. This little bottle of gold can heal what’s there and prevent new ingrowns from reappearing later. A quick few pumps of this on a cotton ball dabbed where ever you’ve been serviced will ban any irritations, which is why it is a staple in my bathroom.

That, and it just shows a glowy side to my skin I haven’t seen before.

 

Intense Hydrating Masque

So, this masque has one main goal hydration. It is, again, good for all skin types, yet covet by those of us with dry or aging skin. What I like most about it are the many ways you can use it.

What’s the most traditional way? Like your average masque, throw it on for 10 minutes and wipe it off with a warm hand towel.

If you wanna get even better results though, there are two other ways to get even deeper product penetration.

This one may be the simplest: Leave it on overnight as a substitute for your night cream. I would suggest this method as the best way to target dry patches or even give your face added plumpness after a tiring night.

You can also massage it into your face while you shower, or even better while under a steamer. Doing it this way opens your pores and lets everything sink past your first layer of skin. Personally, I include this in my daily shower routine. I always feel and look more refreshed after I use it!

Another fun use for this product; sunburn treatment! Since this masque contains aloe, it’s the perfect summer staple to throw in the fridge and apply any time you’ve gotten to little too much sun.

 

Hydrating Treatment Lotion

Now although this is called a lotion, and people often ask if it’s a moisturizer, it’s not!

Don’t get me wrong, this product offers wonderful hydration, but it’s actually a toner.

Sadly, I feel like most of us don’t use toners and I never understood it’s importance until I educated myself. Luckily, now that I know, I could never go back to a regimen without it and I can pass down the knowledge to you.

Before I tell you why I love this product, I’ll tell you why using a toner is important.

They are essential to balance your skin’s PH as well as getting rid of leftover debris, minimizing your pores, and depending on the product, it can even target more specific problem areas.

When it comes to Aveda’s Hydrating Treatment Lotion, it’s purpose is in its name; hydration. So while it removes the grime left after cleansing, it goes a step further to balance the moisture level of your skin and contains humectants which attract moisture naturally from the air.

There is only one way to use this product: after cleansing and before you apply serums and moisturizers.

 

 

All three of these products work great alone, but if you are searching for optimum results, of course, you gotta use them together; EVERY DAY! (More like twice, but sometimes we just can’t find time for that.)

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, but when you snag these products off the shelf, be sure to leave a comment about how you like them!
