Shein Red Scarf Print Blouse

You may recognize this Shein print blouse from another recent post, but this version is in red!  I liked the green one so much, I decided it would be nice to have it in another color.  Once again, I went with a size small.  The fit is very comfortable.  The fabric seems to resist wrinkles, and I love how it's light weight enough to be worn on a day like today when the temperature was around 80 degrees.

I love this blouse with my red trousers, but I am also looking forward to wearing it with different skirts, colors, etc.  I think a blouse like this is a very versatile piece.  And as always, the fact that is resists wrinkles make this a great item to take on vacation.

Shein Striped Shorts

Today I am wearing a great summer outfit from Shein.  The striped shorts I am wearing are a size medium, and the fit is perfect.  There is no stretch in the fabric, but they zip up the front and have a tie belt included.  I am always a little nervous about buying pant or shorts online since I am larger in the hip area, so I am so happy these are a great fit!  I love the length of these shorts.  They are not too short, or too long.  They are just right for what I wanted.  I also like the higher waist.  I think these are some of the first high-waist shorts I have owned.   The fabric feels nice and light, and just like linen, even though the description says they are polyester!  That is hard to believe!
The slightly faded look of the color and fabric is pretty, and I think it makes these the perfect summer vacation shorts.

I love the floral appliques on the sleeves on the white blouse I am wearing.  I love that it can be dressed up or down, also.  That makes this a very versatile piece to add to any wardrobe.  The fabric in on the sheerer side, so you need to wear a nude bra underneath.  I am wearing a size small, and I am very happy with the fit.

Shein Abstract Print Blouse

There is something about this print blouse by Shein that I really like.  It is just so different to anything I have already, that is for sure!  The color combination is very pretty, and perfect for summer!  The top comes in several other color and print options, as well!  The background of the blouse I picked reminds me of Thousand Island Dressing!  I thought the peachy shade went great with rose gold jewlry, like my earrings.

I am wearing my top with my Shein pants.

Popjulia Blue Handbag

My favorite thing about this vegan leather bag (Product ID:  416039) by Popjulia is the beautiful shade of blue!  I don't think I have another bag in blue, and especially not in this shade.  I really love how it "pops" againt this orange trench jacket!

The color is one that will look good in every season, and the size is great for taking along everything you need.  Not too big, or too small.  It is a size I can see actually taking around with me to shop, go to appointments, etc.
You can carry this bag by the short handles on the top (which are also removable), or you can wear it with the included shoulder strap.  I think I prefer the shoulder strap, myself, but having differet options is always nice.

Popjulia has lots of really cute handbags, and clothing, too!  Check out my other post with another Popjulia bag, the bamboo basket bag

Little Black Dress

The weekend is almost here!  Do you have any special plans?  No plans for me...I will probably end up working on my house Saturday, and then just taking a day off Sunday.  I have started a new schedule, and I am already liking it.  Being your own boss can mean you end up working every waking moment, so I am trying something new to combat that.

Popjulia Bamboo Basket Bag

I was so happy to find an affordable dupe by Popjulia for the Cult Gaia Ark handbag.  I am so happy with the size of this one!  I was worried I would not be able to fit much inside, but this one has plenty of space for everything I need.  I am very much looking forward to wearing this a lot this summer season.

I already have my own drawstring bag that fits inside perfectly, so I can keep all my things safe and secure.  I could also easily use a few pouches in it's place.

This bag is under $60, and the quality feels great.  So far, I am very impressed with how sturdy it feels.  Another thing I love about a bag like this is that is it such a beautiful statement piece that it is lovely left on display.  This bag is also going to go with almost all of my spring and summer clothing.

Gold Embroidery

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day weekend!  I spent some of the day with my mother, and we had a nice time, in spite of the weather not being too great yesterday.

Today, we worked on planting more trees in our yard, and putting up a few fence panels along the front of our property.  I am so happy to see them finally going up again!  Our goal is to eventually have our whole property fenced in.  I like having a clean line for what is mine!

This embroidered dress was a thrift store find.  I thought the gold was beautiful, and intricate.  I am such fan of embroidery!   Usually, the more details, the better...as long as I am comfortable.

Types of Hair Used in Making Keratin hair Extensions

Many people, especially women, have been using keratin hair extensions. That is not surprising because hair extensions are suitable for everyone and they can be worn in lots of ways. Women love wearing extensions because these make their hair look fuller and longer.
No matter what styles of hair you are interested in, you can find keratin hair extensions that will help you get those hairstyles. There are many types of hair extensions and there are various types of hair used to make extensions.

Human
Human hair is the best type of hair to use in making keratin hair extensions and hair falls. Many people prefer hair extensions and falls that are made of human hair because these match their own hair well. Also, because they are made of real human hair, they can be dyed, blow dried, and ironed. Extensions made of human hair are attached to natural hair by clips, glue, or thermal fusion. Although you can attach hair extensions to your natural hair by yourself, it is best to ask a professional hairstylist to do it for you.
Remy
Remy hair is real human hair. It is virgin hair which means it has not undergone any chemical processing. The usual way to collect this type of hair is by cutting it straight from the donor. Remi hair comes in five different types. The two most common types are Indian and Chinese. Remi hair is available in various natural colors. Keratin hair extensions made of Remi hair can be blow dried and ironed. However, precautions should be taken to prevent the hair from frizzing and becoming too coarse.

Yaki
Yaki hair is synthetic hair. It is straight and slightly coarse. Although it is synthetic, Yaki hair looks like real human hair. Straight, kinky, silky, and coarse are the four yaki hair types. Women who are African-American are usually the ones who use this type of hair. Keratin hair extensions made of Yaki hair are usually attached to natural hair by braiding or sewing.

Kanekalon and Toyokalon
Like Yaki, both Kanekalon and Toyokalon are synthetic types of hair. Their textures are similar. They are coarse and they are usually used to create braids and dreads. Their base is plastic and they look different from human hair. Kanekalon is oftentimes used to make dread falls, which are quite popular in cybergoth communities. It is compatible with products made for dreads and backcombing it is easy. Toyokalon, on the other hand, is usually used to create braids.
Compared to Kanekalon,Toyokalon tangles easily. Because the base of Toyokalon and Kanekalon is plastic, keratin hair extensions made from these hair types should never be blow dried or ironed.

Black Tassel Pants


I have gotten so much use out these pants from my Shein matching set already.  I decided to wear them with this tee, also from Shien, and the shirt, which was thrifted.  I thought the whole look was very cute.  I love the sparkle detail on the shirt I thrifted.  It is thin cotton, but it looks more like a jacket than a shirt.

Choosing a Front Lace Wig

Front lace wigs have become very popular,fashionable, I think due to the fact that famous celebrities such as Beyonce,Lady Gaga,Tyra Banks always wear these kinds of human hair wigs. Lace top closures looks extremely natural because it is attached at the front hairline, which allows more styling options than traditional human hair wigs. The hair can be pulled back from the face, and still looks natural.
Wearing lace front wig can give you ourstanding looking. The wigs that are similar to those worn by Beyonce are very high in quality, and provide a natural appearance. These types of front lace wigs have a fine lace mesh base, to which the hair has usually been hand-tied. The combination of the mesh base and the hand-tied hair lets the wig look natural regardless of how the hair is parted or styled. There are also varieties of front lace wigs that are a combination of hand-tied and machine-tied hair.

Front lace wigs are available in a variety of textures, colors and lengths and can match lots of hair styles, so you have plenty of options when choosing one that will give you the styling options you like. Front lace wigs made from indian Remy hair or what is called Yaki hair are good choices when trying to match Beyonce's look, because the texture and thickness is similar to natural relaxed African American hair. This can give a very natural look.
One of the most important things you can do to get that famous Beyonce look when wearing a lace front wig is to learn how to apply the wig correctly. This can take some practice, but once learned, will let you apply with the wig in a way that makes it difficult to distinguish from your natural virgin hair. A lace front wig is applied with adhesive along with the front hairline.
Another way to look natural while wearing a lace front wig is to learn how to apply makeup to help blend the front hairline of the lace front wig. This is how Beyonce gets such a natural appearance. Using makeup strategically can add the final touch to getting outstanding looking that you desire.

Shein Green Velvet Skirt and Scarf Print Blouse

You may rememer I recently reviewed a gold velvet, pleated skirt from Shein.  Well, this is the green velvet version.  I am so happy with both skirts!  They are so beautiful!  This skirt goes perfectly with the scarf print blouse, also from Shein.  I am wearing both the skirt and blouse in a size small.  The fit is perfect for both, too.  As with the gold skirt, this one has a zipper on the side, and the waist has some stretch to it so it is very comfortable to wear.  I also found the blouse to be very comfortable.  The fabric is light weight enough to be worn all year around.

I am very happy with the fabric.  I wore both of these straight out of the package they came in, and they had virtually no wrinkles. 
I know I am going to be able to wear both of these pieces with many different items in my wardrobe.  This would be so pretty for the holiday season, and nect St. Patrick's Day, as well!

Ania Haie Coin Necklaces

For today's post, I am sharing pictures of, and information about, these beautiful coin necklaces from Ania Haie. Ania Haie launched in 2018, and their focus is on trendy, sterling silver jewelry, such as the two necklaces I am wearing.  Each piece of jewelry is made with the idea of layering in mind, so their collection makes it very easy to create a unique look, with your own style.  Ania Haie is available in nearly 20 countries, including online, and in leading department stores around the world.

I love that these necklaces are perfect for layering.  These two came in different chain lengths that are also adjustable. Having the ability to be adjusted really comes in handy when wearing different necklines.  I love coin necklaces in particular because they seem to go with so many different things in my wardrobe.

The first, and shortest necklace I am wearing is the Ancient Minoan necklace, and the second one is the Roman Empress.

Mother's Day is right round the corner (Sunday, May 12th), and Ania Haie jewelry makes the perfect gift, especially because of its gorgeous packaging!  It was such a pleasant surprise when I opened mine! 
Right now, Ania Haie is offering a 15% site-wide discount for Mother's Day, if you use Code LibT15, by 5/31, so start shopping now!

Black Floral Print Blouse

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I stayed at home and celebrated Cinco de Mayo with my family.  Vaughan and I got out tiki bar looking more like we want, and we had a great time just enjoying the space, and some great Mexican food!  We will be having leftovers for days!

I used a crock pot for the first time in my life, and I must say, I think I am a new fan!  I love how easy it is to just set it, and forget it.  I am always forgetting to cook, or eat, and then I end of starving because I don't keep track of the the.  I think having somethig in the crock pot could be a great way to have something nice and hot to eat for dinner, without a lot of work or oversight.

Pearl Hair Clip

I am wearing my new, pearl hair clip I bought for less than two dollars from Aliexpress.  I really like the whole hair clip trend that is going on right now!  I am planning to get a few more in different styles, as well. 

The top and pants I am wearing were both thrifted.  I especially love the blue pants.  They are the perfect pastel shade for spring, and they go with so many other colors!
I love the brocade texture of farbic, as well.

Blue Playsuit

The romper I am wearing is one I thrifted in California for one dollar; I thought the colorful jacket I am wearing went very well with it.

My jacket is form Shein.  It doesn't have living so that makes it the perfect jacket for wearing with sleeveless pieces.  It also has lots of different colors so it's easy to match with many different things in my wardrobe.    The sleeves are the perfect length for me, which I love!  The fit really is perfect!

This little jacket would be a great vacation item to take somewhere warm, since it's just the right weight to keep a slight chill away.

White Crochet Skirt

I am enjoying wearing my spring clothing this year.  I bought so many new items since last fall, and now I have a whole rack of new items in beautiful shades of white, pink and beige.  

The top I am wearing is one I bought several years back while I was still living in California, but the skirt is something newer that I bought on sale from Roses.  This skirt is the perfect item to wear all spring and summer long.

Pink Floral Blouse

This pink bush in our yard is finally in full bloom.  I love the shade of pink!  It is just so pretty!

I thought my outfit went very well with the flowers, too!  The necklace I am wearing is one I bought from Roses last winter.   It is such a statement necklace!  I love it!  The top I am wearing is a piece that was thrifted a long time ago.  I am wearing it over a pink dress that was also thrifted.

Spring Themed Shirt

 I spent yesterday working very hard on our house.  There is still a lot to do on the renovation, of course.  Today, I did some work on our "tiki bar" room, and now the room actually has a tiki bar!  It has also been a long time coming!  I hope to create a video on my bar DIY soon!

I recently found this top at a thrift store, and I thought it was the perfect top for spring!  It is all about gardens and flowers!  I decided to wear it with another thrifted item...this white demim, skirt I found at Goodwill.
