One of the perks of this job is being able to test brand new products before they ever even hit the market! I’ve been a fan of Ouidad for quite some time. I’ve tried nearly every item in the line and it’s clear that they understand curly hair. When I was approached with the opportunity to test on of their new products, I could NOT resist (uuuummmm … I AM a self-professed product junkie)!
Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending Optimum Haircare’s launch party for their new 6-in-1 Miracle Oil. Curly Nikki and Tracee Ellis Ross were the guest hosts and all in all, it was a beautiful evening. The kinky, curly and coily headed crowd looked radiant! It was exciting to see all of the various textures and skin tones of gorgeous women in one place.
I received the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Coconut Curling Cream in my curlBOX and couldn’t wait to try it out! The scent alone had me at “Hello!” I used it here and told you all I would review it. Did it live up to my expectations? Check out the video review, pictures of my hair and results and the detailed blog post after the jump!
Michael Kors took the design elements from his best-selling and uber-popular watches and designed a limited-edition watch paying homage to his favorite city. A diamond marks the 12 spot and the NY skyline is engraved on the case. Only 2,000 watches available for purchase at retailers and online at michaelkors.com.
In Time’s new Wireless Issue they examine how cell phones and mainly texting have changed the way we do everything … even dating. How has texting changed the way you date? Buy hair products? Did you sign up for curlBOX using your cell phone?
@ClothesConscience is back with another OOTD and this one is LESS THAN $45! Can you believe it? There’s no excuse for not being able to look pulled together. And the hair? It’s a 3 day old twist out. Want to know how she got the look from head to toe? Deets after the jump!
It’s no surprise that Solo’s home is a reflection of her personal style. In fact, if you’re wondering what direction to take your home decor in just take out some of your favorite pieces and get started with your inspiration board. Are you vintage with a touch of glam? Love bright or muted colors? Your personal style should be reflected in everything you touch.

Shea Radiance is a Columbia, Maryland based eco-luxury beauty brand that was founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Shola and Funlayo Alabi and last week they went on to the shelves of several Target stores! We sampled Shea Radiance in the July curlBOX and it received rave reviews from the curlBOX crew. Yesterday, Shea Radiance celebrated with an over the top party in Columbia, MD and guess who they invited to attend? You guessed correct! We were on hand to take in all of the joy and happiness at this amazing event.
