I am all about supporting local businesses, so of course my new hair extensions are from a company right out of Greensboro, North Carolina - Black Barbie Hair. I was beyond excited to receive four bundles of 24" 26", and 2 28" Brazilian body wave. I'm in love with the lush texture and how manageable it is, which is key to quality virgin hair. I'm debating if I should be bold and try some color for the warmer weather or stick with my jet black tresses. Decisions, decisions, decisions. To order some Black Barbie Hair follow @blackbarbiehairsalon and @cinnabunnsss on Instagram.

I was one of the special hosts for the unveiling of Rip Lash Studio, a nail and waxing studio, in Charlotte. The pretty in pink studio hosts two waxing rooms, a cozy pedicure area, and several nail stations. It's the chicest place to sit back, relax, and get pampered. With pocket friendly prices every fatshionista can get the rockstar treatment. We enjoyed mimosas, champagne infused chocolate-covered strawberries, giant cupcakes, and more sweet treats from Trios Treats. Prior to the event, I got my nails blinged out for the big day by owner, Chris aka "Buff Salon." She knows my love of all things black and white adding tribal print, rhinestones, and old English letters spelling out "Boss." Oh, I've been rocking my natural hair for a week or so. I'm digging the after effect of taking out my twists.

Who would've thought that I would be asked to host an event? I hosted the beYOUtee Brand t-shirt launch at Apostrophe Lounge. The collection is catered to women of all sizes, but targets plus size women in an effort to allow us a change to make a statement through fatshion. The t-shirts display bold messages such as "FATSHIONISTA" and "Be pretty, not petty." Of course I wore the shirt doning the name of my blog. The event was tons of fun with a DJ playing all the latest, giveaways, and yummy food. I can't wait to style my "Be pretty, not petty" t-shirt soon. Check out beYOUtee brand's site and make a fashionable statement.
