Homecoming for my youngest daughter Naomi was held Saturday, November 7, 2015. She is a high school senior now and it was amazing to see her style evolve for homecoming. I have watched her grow into a polished young lady. Naomi also used homecoming as a way to practice for her Senior Prom.
Naomi purchased her homecoming dress earlier this year from Goodwill. She didn’t believe in spending a lot of money on homecoming. The shoes and purse are her sister’s The necklace was given to her.
Naomi styled her own hair. She make clip-ins for extra fullness. Naomi has also gotten quite good at doing her makeup. The only thing I did was her eyeshadow.
I am so proud of her! 🙂
My youngest daughter recently went to her first prom. Naomi didn’t want to spend a lot of money. She is only a sophomore in high school and this wasn’t her school’s prom.
I used mostly BH Cosmetics. The foundation I used was the BH Liquid Foundation in Mocha. I also used colors from the BH Malibu Eyeshadow & Blush Palette for this look.
Naomi curled her hair using the Bellezza Wand.
The dress and shoes Naomi wore is actually her sister’s. The jewelry I purchased was from Charming Charlie (the jewelry was on clearance too).
Not bad for her first prom. I taught her well. 😉
On my most recent visit to Burlington Coat Factory, I was looking for cute scarves. I like wearing scarves. It’s a great way for me to deal with a bad hair day or to add flair to an outfit.
I also saw these cute hair accessories too. I’ve been wearing my hair in a protective hairstyle to retain my length. This is a good way to jazz things up.
Last week I stopped by Macy’s to see if there was any Carol’s Daughter left in stock. Luckily there was.

This was the first time I ever bought The Oprah Magazine. There was so much hype about the September 2013 issue on the Internet. My curiosity got the best of me. Oprah looks fantastic on the cover rocking that afro wig’! I wanted to read the article first and not just post a picture of the cover on my blog.
I’m actually glad I bought the magazine. It was very informative. Various women also shared their hair journeys in the article. The article also included a glossary of terms. Everything women do to their hair was discussed in the article. I do recommend picking up a copy of the Let’s Talk About Hair September 2013 issue. You are not alone in the hair struggle. 😉
