Creative or what?
Saw these in the kitchen when I got home from the big city… my first thought was, “this should be interesting”. My daughter Nicole has always been very creative with her hair doo’s. Here, she has her newly cleaned and groomed dreads. It’s quite the task to get them to this point. She orders them online and they come packaged in lil tiny bags. She takes them out of the lil bags, washes them in a rolling soapy method, drys them for a few days and adds some decorative art work to them. In the end, they always come out different. Anyway, this was her project last week and can’t wait to see what they will look like on. If you want to see the end result, all you have to do is “like” this post.

Here are a few products that I have enjoyed using this month.
Can you guess which product has Holy Grail status?
You can leave you guess down in the comment section.
Kat Von D’s Innersteller EyeShadow Palette: (click here for Sephora details) I love my purples and find that I’m liking the cooler tones, huh, who knew! The contour shade is “ok”, the eyeshadow shades are really nice and I have been able to come up with some great looks this month. All in all a good palette.
Too Faced – Soul Mates – Blushing Bronzer – Carrie & Big: (click here for Sephora details) This soft bronzer has a tiny hint of a sheen to it, in my opinion, and is amazing used all by itself or swirled with the peach colored blush, now that’s a gorgeous pairing!
Tarte’s Maracuja Oil: (click here for Sephora details) This is my second bottle in 6 months for peat sakes. When I first purchased, I thought that this would be a product that I was just buying because of all the hype. However, as soon as I started using it, I totally understood all the hype that it was getting. I have dry to normal skin and during the winter, my skin was absolutely drinking it in. The result was soooo yummy and soft. It will be a love for a long long time… 🙂
I have the Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum in my Sephora Cart..lol!
Just wanted to add this set of jewelry in as I have worn it a couple times this month and is one of my favorite beaded sets.

“My Neechie Bling”
Made by Beverly Pasquayak
I have a very dear friend that is so talented when it comes to designing Native Regalia’s, ribbon shirts, Native Designed Purses or specialty items and my favorite, beaded jewelry. Whether she is creating earrings, necklaces, medallions, hair pieces or specialty items, her work phenomenal. The beadwork or Native themed jewelry that I see being sold in department stores is no way near the same quality. Each piece that she creates is unique and is never the same. Each bead is placed with precision and the outcome is a reflection of her thoughts and feelings during its creation. Which is why her pieces stand out to me.
There are many Native people throughout Turtle Island that are have a talent for creating beaded jewelry and are displayed proudly during our Pow Wow Season and are worn on a daily basis. Every beaded piece is finely made, is detailed and precision is key in the creating “Wicked Neechie Bling”.
90% of my collection is beaded or in someway have a Native Theme and when I say “Native Theme”, I mean, that piece will be beaded or may have some turquoise incorporated into the pieces. I am one of those people who can scan over jewelry and only pick up jewelry that speaks to me or more so my soul. Which is why my collection all have a story behind them.
This set that I am showcasing today is my favorite set. Beverly Pasquayak is the creator of this finely beaded set that came with a set of earrings, a necklace and a barrett. I was absolutely drawn to this set as it reminds me of the cape that I started beading years back and never completed. Yes, this lady has a talent for creating pieces that just soothe my soul. I only wear this set when I feel on top of my game, thank you Bev, your awesome.
I will continue to showcase a set or a piece of my beaded jewelry collection each month. So with that, thank you for stopping by and reading my blog, it is much appreciated, stay fabulous.
