Marley/Havana Twists

I plan on switching up my hair style tomorrow!!

I’d like to have a new style before I go back to school in a couple of weeks, and I’ll keep in this style until after my cruise is over. :)

The style is called Marley twists (or Havanna, I call them Marley because that’s the type of hair I use). Marley/Havana twists are basically two-strand twists with hair extensions.  Marley/Havana twists haven’t become that popular where I live (or at least I haven’t seen many women with the style- only 1 to be exact lol), but I still like them nevertheless! I had some last year and everyone loved it. Most people thought they were dreads though lol.

Marley is the type of hair extensions used for the style, and it can be purchased at your local beauty supply stores.
$4.99/pack

Havanna is also the name of the hair extension, but I believe (correct me if I’m wrong) can only be purchased online here: FingerComber.com.
Price: 12.99/pack

There are plenty of tutorials that teach you how to install these twists yourself, and so that’s the route I plan on going again.
Here are some different ones for those who may be interested in trying it out themselves. It’s very easy!

I’ll share pics of how it comes out, laterrrr!! :3

Show n’ Tell 2

First, I want to thank those who voted on my 2nd What to Wear poll!! Here are the results:pollresults

There was a tie between two outfits (I wish there could’ve been a tie breaker, perhaps if I had posted the poll earlier lol)
I ended up taking it upon myself to choose between the two outfits in the end!

I liked the pattern on this dress but when I got home and tried it on I soon learned that it’s rather… shapeless/boxy :/ Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. It has little pockets though, I thought that was cute.
$8.00

So I stand by it!

My grandmother gave me these to cheer me up. (I was the only one out of my siblings running errands, getting things together yesterday for my mom’s bday- AND I got a flat tire doing it… so I was just totally pooped and annoyed by the time I was done >_>.)

#2: What to Wear?

Hey hey hey!

I meant to post this waaaaay earlier! You see, I have a job interview tomorrow afternoon, and while I was so busy prepping myself for questions and worrying about what I should bring… I forgot to plan out what I was going to wear.

I won’t say what the job is x__x Maybe after I get it? lol. Or not. I will say that if I get it, I’ll most likely be able to dress Lolita style to work! *__*

Anyway, but my interviewer already knows I have interest in art, fashion, and things like that. She’s expecting someone creative! So part of me is thinking maybe I should try to think outside of the box (just a little?) and, while still being professional- not do the typical black bottoms and white blouse?

Well, I kinda rushed and tossed some things together, but here are some looks I’ve put together, please vote and let me know which you like better!

Outfit #1:  Simple, black pencil skirt and a green button down blouse. I’ll most likely dress up with accessories

Outfit #2: The typical. White blouse, black (pencil) skirtIMG_0627

Outfit #3: Sheer pink blouse with the black peter pan collar and cuffs + Black pencil skirt. Will probably wear those pearls to dress it up.IMG_0618

Outfit #4: Although the typical black/white look, I felt like the pattern top added some flare + White pencil skirt

Outfit #4b: And similar to outfit 4, only the skirt is black.

VOTE HERE:

Also, these are the shoes I’m debating between (depends on which outfit I wear, so it’s really not up for voting hahaha- though I’ll take any suggestions for which shoes you feel will look best with which outfit you like!) Nothing special as you can see hahaha!

Anyway, I’m going to bed now so I can be up extra early and prepared! Goodnight everyone, thanks!
