New York Fashion Week, Plus Some

New York Fashion Week, Plus Some, Ask Me About My Hair Blog

So I am [totally and completely] new to fashion blogging, but I am not new to the fashion industry and all the drama that sometimes surrounds it.  There are many fashion choices I have liked and many more that I just don’t have the time or patience for.  I have always been a pretty simple dresser, and never felt that high fashion was really for me – a plus-sized woman.  I mean, when can we walk into the stores and find something that was made for sizes 0-10 in our ‘section’ as well?  Right.  Rarely.  So I lost interest in shopping and chose to focus on those things I could make beautiful – my natural hair and awesome shoes.  But recently, something changed…

Natural Hair & DragonCon Cosplay, Part One

Natural Hair and DragonCon Cosplay, Ask Me About My Hair Blog

So… we went to DragonCon this year… Best. Time. Ever.  (after our awesome honeymoon, of course!)  I have rarely seen so many people in one place (well, except for the Champs-Élysées, Paris, France).  But what’s weird is that I’ve never felt so comfortable around so many people in one place.  It was like being among 70,000+ peers in cosplay and we can’t wait wait to go back next year.

Curlie Review: Organix Coconut Curls

Coconut Curls Curlie Review, Ask Me About My Hair Blog

Have you ever picked up a product because of how it looks?  How about because of the smell?  Or simply because it was made by a company you like?  Well all three of these is the reason I picked up the Organix Coconut Curls hair line.  It has been one of my summer staples, and I feel I have used it long enough to share my thoughts with you.  Stay tuned for the review…
