Christian Siriano for payless?

He's spring 2010 collection was very unique and creative. Something different and out of the box. When i firist saw the shoes, I was in awe!

When i heard he came out with a cheaper version of this collection  for payless, I almost had a heart attack! I went on the payless site to look for the shoes, it wasn't there. So I did some searching online for the shoes but it wasn't a happy ending. I found the shoes, but it wasn't what i expected. Idk why but I thought his collection for payless will be almost an exact replica of his high end collection. Well i was wrong and disappointed.

Bantu Knots

I only put heat to my hair prob like twice a month, and I plan to keep it like that. Lately I've been wanting to make my hair curly, but i didn't want to put any heat on it. So I went to youtube and start searching and found out about bantu knots.

 It's curls without heat. At first it can be hard, but the more times you try. The easier it becomes. 

In these pictures I did medium knots & about 8 of them.

Skin the Movie.

I've seen the preview months ago, and somehow my attention was brought back to it.
The movie came out in late 2009 and won many awards in the film festival. I have yet to see it but I'm determine to watch it sometime next week.
What caught my attention is that it's a true story that happen in South Africa

Synopsis -
"SKIN is one of the most moving stories to emerge from apartheid South Africa: Sandra Laing is a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners, unaware of their black ancestry. Her parents are rural shopkeepers serving the local black community, who lovingly bring her up as their ‘white’ little girl. But at the age of ten, Sandra is driven out of white society. The film follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance, betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world - and triumphs against all odds."
