Amanda's 21st Birthday at F.A.B & dealing with a horrid weave

My little sister Amanda finally turned 21 on August 4th, so we went out to celebrate a couple of weeks ago on August 6th. We went to F.A.B which is a restaurant that was turned into the club for the night.

That's the birthday girl :) at the Club.

But before I got there I had a huge dilemma!!!! My hair was a birds nest. If you're on my twitter, you've heard me complain about it. It was sooo bad. Dear weave, why on earth do I continue to experiment with different brand names!!

Honestly at Beauty Mart in Jonesboro their doing a buy one get one free, so I spent like about only $200 on 4 packs, and ended up using 3 packs of hair. OMG what a mistake. My hair sheds!!! the floor is a mess. I comb can barely pass through it, and let's just say by the time this night was over, we could put a comb through it!!!

So anyways, I didn't go to dinner, cuz Im super vain & refuse to leave the house looking a hot mess, my sister is my sister, so was understanding. I also wasnt going to go to the club, but considering all out friends flew in from Maryland, and London, c'mon, I decided to put up a fight & use the strongest Hair tools own, and take a freaking shower & party my ass off.

My sister's also moving to the Caribbean for a year for Med School so this was her 21st birthday / send off party.

& Here are the pics, cuz I'm such a blogger :) trust me pics are fun and all, but I'm sure people gave me the side eye when I took pictures of the elevator at the club lol
The tools I used- Chi Heat Protection, H2Pro Flat Iron, CHI Silk Infusion Serum<< bad hair savior, Curling Rods & Showered

ARGH!!!!! It's a Nest! It's a Tree, It's a Bombchell??? No!!

This stupid hair couldn't go bone straight, and all my friends know this flat Iron is a G!!! Like it will straighten a crooked man
YEA B!!!!! Now that's the BombChell I know!

went sans lashes, Im feeling the Gemma Ward - Alien Hottie
Love this pic cuz you can see my outfit, and I dont look fat --- take that Hot Pockets & Marble Cake
White Pants - from Bebe, 
Top: American Apparel unitard, 
African inspired Necklace: Guy stand at Perimeter mall (opposite the MAC Store - never take his 1st or 2nd price, try to knock it down)
Boobs: Genetic (Amen!!!!! can u believe I used to be a B Cup freshman year in college)

MY GIRL LOLA: omg we didnt realize we both wore black & white until we saw the pics we took together lol

Was pretty cool, had bout 3-4 Floors
Loved it, was thrown by Prohecy Events, Luther's pretty cool, we got a nice deal for VIP, had a ton of fun, but omg ATL has been super hot like 96-104 degrees, and lets just say I could barely feel the AC in the room. You know it's a restaurant. However I'd be super happy to be there in October, when the outside forces wouldn't affect me, my makeup, or my horrible weave lol

FAB Atlanta (French American Brasserie)
(404) 266-1440
30 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd
Atlanta, GA 30308

The parking was right beside it, they charged $10, and the nicest guy ever worked in the building and helped us find our way down, and where we parked when the club was over.

My sexy cousin!

Sis & Lola

My Little Bro: Mancini & My cousin Sunshine


Ma pretty girls!! gosh they BB, SKYPE, & PHONE EACH OTHER lol

Sis & Brother : OMG no more watching True Blood!!!! #TearFuckingDrops

THE PITCH DARK ROOM: couldn't see shit!! had to use my camera flash to see peole

LOL did a double take, then left to go to another floor

Needed some air, the club was way too hot, and not the sexy hot, the humid type.

Don't u love when random guys jump into your picture

This crazy chick just came back from South Africa (world cup) & ditched me to celebrate her bday outside ATL the next week. smh but I still love u boo

I was "stuck" talking to his dreaded & bearded friend that just came from Jamaica. Im not trying to perpetuate any stereotype but omg he kept talking to me, and smelled soooo much of weed. his boy was hot but the hair got in the way smh

LOL I just noticed, I tend to party and hangout with the same people, If you read my blog, you'll start recognizing that a lot of faces are the same when we're in DC, Mia, Atlanta or on Holidays, And it's pretty funny that most of us don't live in the same city or state, guess we might move around a lot, but we tend to move together.

:( so this summer everyone's really moving this time. It's always a family affair I tend to party & travel with both my sisters and both my brothers.

Johny Bravo aka Mancini my little brother just started at a really good college! Congrats boo don't miss me ha ha *teardrops* try not to get fat!!! cuz I gained the freshman 30 not 15 & no more abs for u.

Charles is moving to Nigeria next month, so ladies & gents if you ever bump into him at Rehab or wherever please save him from "those chicks" ;)

& Amanda's moving to the Caribbean for a year.

That's all folks :)


  1. i LOVE your blog girl! I hope to do this one day when I'm older! I think your sooooooo beautiful! no homo lol
    xoxo Debby

  2. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for and with a weave I'd never go cheap! You should stick to brands that are great, like Extensions-Plus... because trying to save $ messing with cheap stuff will just have your head looking a mess and your wallet $200 broker lol...

    Why not try a full weave with a closure so you don't have to worry about blending your hair? I used Extensions-Plus Zig Zag body hair and closure and it was GORGEOUS! Of course the quality of the person sewing it in means a lot too, but the hair never once shed, matted or tangle. I loved it...

  3. @ Debby, awwww thanks *blushing*

    @ South Loop Social Light: smh girl I know, I just always want to discover the next best thing. Like now, I wanna try out Extensions-Plus just cuz u said it. LMAO smh i dont learn
