ItsMyRayeRaye's denim jumpsuit is an LA thrift find (store on Melrose) and her hologram heels are from a shop called “Spring”. My leather pants are thrifted, jacket is from an old suit my mom used to rock in the 80s, hat is a Tokyo street find and my Sam Edelman boots. Me and Raye are true NYC thrift shop kids. Lol. Are any of you thrifters too?

Thank you to Refinery29 for including me in this piece on 12 Beauty Blogs That Every Natural-Haired Girl Should Bookmark. <3
These pics are from a few years back when I cut my hair at the Devachan salon. The pic on the left is of my fresh cut with my own regimen (they cut your hair dry). The pic on the right is when they washed my personal regimen out and applied their own. Same hair cut. Both fully dried. Two completely different looks.
This is why understanding your hair and which products to use makes a BIG difference. Some products will tame your hair, some products will let your hair “be”. We all have different style preferences (I prefer big hair). But I want you to see the difference beauty regimens can make.
I received an email from the Nike Training Club saying “Access Is Granted”. I was excited and…scared. Have any of you used the NTC app? Whew! It’s one thing to work out on your own with it and it’s a whole different ball game to be on Nike’s radar and trained by their actual instructors.
Long story short, I’ve been laying on my living room floor for the past hour. It was a high intensity workout that started with 30 min of boot-camp like total body conditioning followed by another 30 min of weight-based yoga. It was hard but I feel amazing for completing it! The Nike Ambassadors were all really energetic and nice! And made sure we had water and towels on deck at all times. We were given shots of wheat grass followed by smoothies to help our muscles recover right afterwards.
Thank you to our awesome trainers @noahdnieman and @karaliotta. They were tough on us but made sure to do it with love. And shouts to my fellow beasts @msporsche911 @hannah_rhee @vashtie @southernelle @hannahbronfman and @darlingchuck. Nike access is now granted. I’m ready!
