Featured Artist Tuesday! | ♪ Jessica Sanchez ♫

Me, You & The Music

I am so excited right now!  On my quest to find new music, I came across a lovely set of vocals belonging to Jessica Sanchez.  Jessica was a contestant on Cycle 11 of the hit show and she recently released her debut album, Me, You & The Music at the end of April.  Her first single, "Tonight" features writer and recording artist Ne-Yo and has made a buzz on the music scene.  Miss Sanchez has more great things in the work as well:  she has a deal with Interscope and she'll be joining the cast of the hit show Glee.  To top it off, this young lady is 17!  Talk about showing young girls everywhere that with perspective, dedication, and hard work you can reach your goals and make your dreams come true!

I absolutely love the video for "Tonight!"  The atmosphere is fun with a dose of glam topped with a sleek edge.  The upbeat chorus make you want to go out with your girls just to dance the night away.  Lyrically, the track brings images of "leaving earth" to a planet where "the dudes have money...and they're not afraid to spend it...the party's never ending...and everything's alright."  Sometimes I want to run away to a place like that too, so I instantly started playing this song on repeat!


"We not even on earth tonight." - Tonight by Jessica Sanchez feat. Ne-Yo

After one listen, numerous other tracks on the album caught my attention:

  1. Crazy Glue
  1. No One Compares
  1. In Your Hands
  1. You've Got The Love

Hope you enjoyed this week's featured artist!  If you check out her music, let me know what you think.  Talk to you guys soon!

Easy Flower Nail Art Design Tutorial

Here's a simple flower nail art design I came up with while experimenting with some of my favorite pink nail polish shades. The technique is easy, and depending on your nail length, you can change the size of the flowers to you liking.

>>> Here's how to create the design:

  1. Prep your nails using your favorite manicure technique
  2. Choose a sheer or pastel color as your base color
  3. Choose two polish colors (preferably different shades of the same color)
  4. Pick a light or dark green polish color to create stems & grass
  5. Grab your favorite base and top coat polish
  6. Optional:  Grab a manicure stick, nail gems/decals, and a detail brush 

Hope you enjoy this simple and easy technique to create flowers. =)

Easy Going Flexi-Rod Set on Locs Tutorial

There's so many different techniques for curling your hair, and locs are no exception.  My favorite method to date is using Flexi-Rods, or Flex Rods to curl my locs.

Flex Rods come in wide variety of lengths and widths.  Some are as thin as straws and others are almost as thick as small/medium magnetic rollers.  I use a variety of four different sizes of rods across my whole head and I place them depending on how I want my curls to fall.  Here's a few guidelines I use when deciding which rods to use or purchase:

  1. Decide what size you want your curls to be and choose rods to match
  • To create tiny/narrow springy spirals -- Use rods the around the size of straws
  • To create medium spirals -- Use medium sized rods ☺
  • To create large, bouncy spirals that fall as slight waves -- Use rods with a thick width
     2.  Guesstimate how many rods you will need
  • Thicker hair will typically need more rods
  • Fine hair will typically need fewer rods
  • Smaller rods = more used to set your hair
  • Larger rods = fewer used to set your hair
     3.  If your locs are different lengths, use various sized rods in one set to create uniform looking curls [method I usually use]
  • Use somewhat thinner rods on your shorter/thinner locs
  • Use somewhat thicker rods on your longer/thicker locs
Have fun and experiment with different techniques of wrapping your hair along the flexi-rods and try out different flex rod sizes. =)
