Japan Lucky Crate FAIL

Japan crate advertised a limited edition 1-time crate with 10 candies for $15 earlier this February. Each crate was suppose to contain a variety of items and if you got multiple boxes there would be few repeats. For myself and many others hoping to win some of the bonus prizes this was a total fail. Not only did we not win any DIY kits, plushies, or a Nintendo DS but we received lots of duplicates of items or even missing items.
Here is a side-by-side of when I first opened the box. I was sad I didn't win a pass to redeem a plush or other big items but was still excited to try the drinks and snacks.
Here is a side-by-side of what came in each box, extremely disappointing especially since I was expecting a variety of flavors and items to try. Another thing that bothered me was that my second box only had 9 items instead of 10 like it was suppose to.
In a way I'm glad that I wasn't other who got 5 or 6 of the same item in each box but I'm still mad that Japan Crate didn't keep their word and let a lot of people down.

Side Note: I will be getting one crate in March from Japan Crate and Doki-Doki and will do an in-depth review of all the items. I ordered the box back in January before ordering the Lucky crates but was too late to receive the February boxes.

Ovation Made My Moms Hair Fall Out!

Everyone has heard of Ovation on the radio with tons of positive results that claim to make your hair thicker, stronger, and longer. Their claim may be true for many but when my mom recently tried it, it made her hair fall out it clumps when combing. I'm not sure it this it due to part of her hair being chemically treated with a relaxer(not to be confused with a "perm" that uneducated people like to call it), but it got to the point where she just decided to shave it all off because she was self conscious about it. 
Be warned when trying over-hyped products, test a strand in the back and see how you react to it. I would hate for anyone to lose their hair when they are trying to achieve thicker, stronger, and longer hair.

P.S. On a positive note for the company, their de-tangling spray actually works pretty well on my hair and has not made it fall out or thin like it did for my mother.
P.S.S My mom is Jamaican so she has kinky curly natural hair.

Cutting My Hair

People always told me that they would kill to have my curls and I never really got why because to me they were a pain in the butt. Yeah, they were pretty but strangers didn't have to de-tangle this mane and keep it conditioned and healthy. One time I was walking with my friend in-front of Randalls (a grocery store in my area) and a lady stopped her car, rolled down the window, and shouted that she loved my hair. It was extremely embarrassing but not the first time its happened so I smiled and said thank you before continuing on with my day.
The reason I decided to chop off my hair was simply because it was boring to me, I had already died the bottom blue but I wanted something completely new. First I shaved and cut the sides and back. 

After some time the sides grew to be too long and as my ex told me that I looked like a clown, which made me cry and decide to cut my hair to all of the same length...
Think this with a bun on top
My hair is currently short and way more manageable because if I'm being lazy I can put on a hat and call it a day. At some point I plan to attempt to make another video on my new hair care routine.
Such a weird angle but you can see how short my hair is.

My First YouTube Video!

A couple of months ago I posted my first YouTube video, and boy was it an experience. I don't get how Youtubers have the confidence to talk to the camera as if its a person; for me it was just too weird so I opted for a voice over which was still nerve-racking to me. I give my applaud to those who can talk to a camera.
This video took place in my bedroom after a shower, in it I explain my hair care routine. My editing is sloppy in my opinion since it was the first time I ever had to edit a video and I could only use the options on Imovie on my Iphone. The quality also isn't up to standard with "the best of the best" on YouTube because I just used my Iphone instead of a professional grade camera.

If you like this video I'll try to be less awkward and make more or even start to use Periscope. Also if you want me to list all the products I use or a review of the products just let me know and I'll type it up and list places you can purchase the products from.
