Spring time obviously means fun times. Casual looks will be abound. Got to have a catchy time piece. the G-Shock by Casio is the ultimate casual watch. Cost efficient, multitude of colors & styles. Casio first dropped the G-Shock  in April 1983. For the next few years Casio released a handful of new models each year. The popularity of G-Shocks increased rapidly throughout the 1990s. Fell off after that but came back huge the last few years. So for spring they dropped a few styles…

GB-6900 Series

While Bluetooth watches aren’t entirely new, the GB-6900 is the first of its kind to use Bluetooth 4.0, taking advantage of this iteration’s Low Energy capabilities to maximize battery life. The watch synchronizes with your Bluetooth-equipped phone, enabling you to set alarms, change ring modes, view incoming calls, and read SMS or email messages on the watch’s innovative display.

GA-110 Series

Building off Casio’s GA-100 line with an X-Large case and Ana-Digi time keeping display, the GA-110 Collection presents a range of G-Shocks in all-over hyper coloring. Fresh for the impending warm weather, still offers G-Shock’s legendary shock and water resistance build.

G-Shock Solar Military Series

G-Shock Solar Military series features shock resistance, 200M water resistance, full auto EL backlight, world time (48 cities + UTC), 4 daily alarms and 1 snooze, 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, 12/24 Hr formats, and mute function. Like camo shorts jump on this.

 

The Sky Cockpit GW-4000 Series

Noted here in a black and orange combination. The timepiece boasts the brand’s Triple G Resist shock absorbing technology, alongside Tough Solar and Multi-Band-6 sync. Yea this will pull off any warm night situation.

This spring the heat wont only be in the weather with these pieces for your wrist. Check the G-Shock website for these pieces now.

It appears that Mother Nature is playing a cruel joke on us. While spring has officially arrived, the warm temperatures left us this week because it has been quite chilly. We were spoiled by the 70 degree weather that we forgot that the temperatures we are experiencing now are quite normal. So let’s get to the matter at hand, and that is Bianca Lawson. The actress was spotted at the premiere of The Weinstein Company’s Bully at the Mann Chinese 6 Theater in Los Angeles, California. She rocked a fab tribal print maxi dress and leather jacket.

I love this look because you have an elegant aspect with the maxi dress, but the leather jacket gives it a little bit of edge. A leather jacket is also a wardrobe staple for both men and women. You can get similar looks without the use of a leather jacket, although it is perfect for this weather. You can basically pull this look off with any outerwear layering piece such as a denim jacket, cropped jacket, anorak, or even a simple cardigan.

Here are some great printed maxi dresses all under $100 and also some great affordable leather jackets to pair with your maxi as well.

Get. The. Look.

Last November I attended the launch of Beautiful Textures Intense Moisture, a new hairline geared toward mixed hair types (curly, kinky, wavy, frizzy). I answered a question correctly and won the entire hair care collection. This review will focus on the Moisture Butter since it is the product that I have used the most and can write an honest review about.

At the Beautiful Textures Launch the focus was mainly on the importance of keeping your hair moisturized. My hair was color treated and began breaking off because of the lack of moisture. It was very dry and brittle. So when I received the product I was excited to see if I could nurse my hair back to a healthier state.

Beautiful Textures Intense Moisture Butter

 Achieve amazing manageability and styling versatility for Curly, Wavy, Kinky-Coily or Frizzy hair. Get soft defined curls, bodacious bouncy spirals, and smooth silky tresses with this Intensive Moisture-Rich Formula for mixed textured hair.

Benefits:

  • Elongate Kinky Coils ~ Tame Frizzies

Dry, brittle, thirsty hair stunts natural growth. To help ensure locks reach their full growth potential, refresh and hydrate your mixed textured hair every day with Moisture Butter.

 Moisture Butter helps maximize the styling options of mixed textured hair by helping achieve softer, more defined curls, healthier looking elongated coils, or simply silky-smooth hydrated hair.

My Thoughts

I really like the Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter. It does exactly what it says that it will do. My hair was colored in the front and broke off really badly from the lack of moisture. I applied a small amount of the the moisture butter and every morning and night sealed with oil and within a month my hair was starting to grow back. After I began this new process I changed my hair regimen which I will share with you at a later time. My roots (new growth) were very manageable and not brittle. My only issue was that if I applied too much my hair began to look limp and lifeless so it definitely use sparingly. After applying it to my nape and my edges I began applying it all over my head. When I applied it at night, I would wake up with such soft hair. I was very impressed. When it was time for a relaxer, I applied the moisture butter to my edges and my edges were tamed and smooth.

Pros

  1. Smell- it has a tropical smell that I really like
  2. Softens hair- my hair was noticeably softer after a few applications
  3. Price $6.99
  4. Smooths out edges.

 Cons

  1. If you apply to much it weighs your hair down
  2. Does not contain all natural products- this was a major concern for me now that I am nursing my hair back to a healthier state and trying to grow my hair out. Natural products are always best. Although many of the main ingredients are natural there is still a considerable amount of non-natural products in the moisture butter.

Scale of 1 to 5- I give this product a 3.8 (random I know lol) If it contained all natural products it would have been rated higher, but it does keep my hair moisturized but it is also a little heavy and weighs the hair down. Other than that it is great.

Beautiful Textures can be purchased online, at your nearest Sally’s Beauty Supply Store or many other local beauty supply stores across the country. Click here for more info.

I hope this was helpful!
