This hair has my Melanin Poppin! | PerfectLaceWig.com


Hello Lovlies!

Hope all is well and you are enjoying the sunshine! - much like myself.

Now, for the longest some of my blog readers here have been asking for more hair reviews. Weelll, you are definitely in luck because today I will be sharing a BOMB wig company known as Perfect Lace Wig.


I had the opportunity to try out and review one of their 360 lace wigs and I must say I am in love. Since summer has finally made it's arrival (it's about time), I decided to opt for a brighter colour, something a little out of my comfort zone so OMBRE it was!


Colour
So first of all let's start with the colour of this unit. This wig was pre-dyed to a 1b/30 colour. However, I did use my Shimmer Lights shampoo to tone the hair and tailor it to my skin tone. This was an easy process and required me soaking the hair in the shampoo over night and washing it out/ conditioning the hair the next morning. The colour turned out perfect for my skin tone, which is something I usually worry about when going for lighter colours. Not this time though! This hair has my skin glowing in the sun.

Customising 
Customising the lace frontal wig was also simple because the unit comes pre-plucked and with baby hairs already - how amazing. I bleached the knots and plucked the hair further for a more natural look. I also defined my baby hairs using some water, mousse and edge control.
The lace on the cap is very easy to blend into my skin tone  and to glue it down I used my trusted Got2b glue.






Styling

I love the fact that this wig can be parted anywhere. I have always been a middle part person but this side part hunnayy! Everybody was feeling it!




This is a straight unit that stays straight for days without requiring me to straighten it. Shedding is very minimal and the hair does not tangle. I also feel as though 20 inches is the perfect length for summer as it is not too long or too short.




YAY OR NAY?

Overall I would rate this unit an 8/10, the customisation was a breeze, however I would have loved for the unit to have a little more body and for the colour to be more gradual. But, this does not take away from the versatility of this unit and it's easy installation. It's perfect for beginners or those who simply require a go-to frontal wig.

The link to this unit is:


Item No. is 360LW32


The specifications are as follows:

5 Things You Need To Know About Wildlife Removal

5 Things You Need To Know About Wildlife Removal






Wildlife is great, but most forms of wildlife should stay in the wild. Unfortunately, certain forms of wildlife like invading human homes and can become a health and safety hazard. At that point, it is time to call pest control.  Here are five things you need to know about wildlife removal to help ensure that the process goes smoothly for you and your family:
1. Finding Help is Easy:  Finding a pest control expert is as easy as typing “wildlife removal services near me” into your favorite search engine. When reviewing options, make sure to find a company that is reputable and has great reviews.
2. Experience Matters: Getting rid of cockroaches is different from getting rid of mice or squirrels. When looking for a pest control company, make sure that the company is able to deal with your type of problem. Fortunately, companies like Terminix specialize in a variety of vermin.
3. You’ll Need to Prepare: With any pest, you’ll need to go through and pack your belongings to help ensure that nothing is damaged during the fumigation process. You may also need to leave your home for a day or two to avoid exposure to harmful chemicals. A good company will offer plenty of advice on what you need to do to prepare for extermination day.
4. Beware of Damage: Certain types of wildlife can cause damage to your home. Termites can eat through foundation while mice can chew through wiring and certain types of insulation. After you get rid of the pest, a home inspection is usually a good idea to help ensure that all damage is repaired.
5. Prevention is Important: Pest removal is a major inconvenience. Fortunately, there are various ways to prevent pests from re-entering your home. Your local pest experts can offer plenty of ideas on keeping your home pest free.

Uninvited wildlife can be annoying, but with a bit of work, you can make and keep your home pest free.

Dream Home? The perfect Decor Marketplace

Dream Home? The perfect Decor Marketplace


Hello All,

My favourite month of the year is here! Happy Sweet November, and as usual, I hope this month is full of blessings, love and happiness - more than you could ever imagine!


Certainly, I can not be the only person who from time to time gets lost in a reverie about my dream house. I plan everything, from the dinning area to the kitchen and bathroom. What colour sofas am I going to have? Will i opt for dark wood or light wood? - there is so much planning involved so I can only imagine what it will be like for first time home owners. Luckily, there is a great website that can help you with some of that preparation.

PlumbTile are architectural bath and kitchen tile specialists. They sell everything you need to make your bathroom and kitchen perfect and exactly what you've always dreamt of.
This includes sinks and basins, lighting, mirrors and cabinets.
 I spent so long on their site, placing bits and pieces together, in preparation for my future home. (I'm starting early for once lol).

Below are a few suites that caught my attention. I am definitely more of a modern girl when it comes to furniture. I usually go for a clean and minimal look and I found what I was looking for.






 I could not believe how many brands they carried on the site! Take Phylrich faucets for example, a leading brand known for their luxurious bathroom products and  also Huntington Brass, another leading manufacturer. There is so much variety, how could you not find what you are looking for? 
The quality of the titles look amazing and the styles are to die for - definitely bathroom and kitchen goals!








Aren't they stunning? 
 If you are moving to a new home or are looking to give your current home a makeover, I highly recommend www.plumbtile.com. For those of you who are dreamers like me, you'll have a great time browsing their site and picking out pieces for the near future.

Enjoy x

Chic and Effortless Style for the Long Summer Weekend!

Chic and Effortless Style for the Long Summer Weekend!


                                                     By Sophia Smith

image source

We all know that stressful feeling at Monday morning when the work week is starting. As the days are passing, the pressure decreases and the expectancy of the end of the week increases. 
Finally, after a long, long work week comes the weekend you’ve been waiting for.
The weekend isn’t just the time when you can relax, hangout more with your friends and leave all your worries behind, it’s also an opportunity to drop your work outfit and give a chance to all those nice and casual clothing which languish in your wardrobe, to shine. This is the right time to show your individuality and creativity, but you shouldn’t try too hard or the carefree nature of the weekend can be pointless. After all, there’s nothing better than an outfit that’s comfortable and actually stylish, right?
Here are some advices to spark your imagination on how to choose the perfect outfit for those hot summer weekends.


Play with a Colours

Since you aren’t in office anymore, you don’t have to stick to a conventional choice of colours or monochromatic and reduced look. Your summer weekend outfit should be colourful and bright. White will look especially good on you if you’re already tanned. But, if you prefer floral dresses, in order to keep a casual look stick to models with clean lines and easy shapes.

Share the Vibe

Your clothes can communicate your inner spirit, so if you're feeling great why wouldn’t you share that mood with others? Regardless if it’s your friend, a cashier or just a passer-by, they will notice your expression and maybe it will have an effect on them.
image source

For example, chose a t-shirt with some funny quote, picture or a pattern. Or simply, wear something with navy stripes or just plain black or red; it will remind everyone to the beach, and only a few things are more relaxing than a snapshot of the endless blue (except actually being there, of course).


Loosen up

Being casual is a crucial element in a simple, but effective summer look. Due to high temperatures it’s a good idea to prioritize natural fabrics, like cotton or linen. Try a loose dress, jumpsuit, short-sleeved or a button up blouse. Tip: if you are wearing a long shirt don’t button up all the way - leave the top three buttons loose.
image source


Show Some Skin

One of the most effective and practical pieces of clothing, for an effortless and stylish look, is a short denim. It’s length and shade is up to you, but a lighter colour is more appropriate, especially for a daytime combination.  If you’re going to spend your weekend on a beach (lucky you!), a swimming pool or maybe at a cottage, having a barbecue, a bikini-top combined with shorts would be a great choice. Throw in a bohemian style kimono, and you’re ready to have some fun. While you at it don't forget to get a tan.
image source



 Don’t Forget the Details

Even the simplest combination, like a t-shirt and a mini skirt, can be special if you add some accessories to it. Consider the boho style; it’s hyppie and romantic characteristics are perfect for achieving a chic look. Sunglasses are necessary to complete your outfit and a great way to add a subtle touch of your personal style to it.
image source

There are many different styles like: retro, pilot, cateye, the Lennon's style etc. You probably already know what shape is the most suitable for you.


Comfortable Way is the Best Way

Choose a footwear that goes along with your outfit, but try to avoid high heels. Flat shoes, like sneakers, ballerina flats or flat sandals are more comfortable and appropriate for any setting and a casual look. But if you can’t imagine yourself being so closed to the ground, pick platform sandals - they’ll look less serious than the ones with heels.
image source

Basically, when it comes to a summer weekend, everything is allowed. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing and to keep it as simple as you can. After all, it’s your time to relax, so try to keep your worries and effort at the minimum and have some fun.
