DIY 40 inch ponytail


Hey loves for those of you that remember me wearing this extra long pony back in 2015, well I’m FINALLY doing a tutorial.

Just terrible I know.. I know there are a few comments on aDCTV where they are going innnn on me for not including a tutorial two years ago lol. But that particular video was really just for an inspirational hairstyle I jacked from my sister Beyonce’.

Fast forward nearly two years later, I’m now showing you step by step what I did to accomplish the look. Be sure to check out the full tutorial above.

Items you will need: 2 bundles of hair of your choice, Braid hair,  Eco styler Gel, Bobby pins, and to tame those edges sis you will definitely need some edge control.

I wear the clothes. The clothes don’t wear me – RMG Rod Marley

RMG I AM YOU’RE BIGGEST FANNNN WHEEEW…
I am The Founder of Rasta Money Gang …which is actually inspired by my rap name, Rod Marley. I picked up a bad habit, well not necessarily a bad habit but I started smoking at the age of 13.  That elevated to wanting to smoke more and more, so much that people started calling me Bob Marley. Rod  being my real name,  so I took the Marley and just ran wit it.
After a half day of shopping and looking at new ways to have a conservative approach mixed with a bit of urban appearance,  RMG artist Rod Marley and  I discussed some new music he has coming.
When did you discover yourself as a rapper?
So peep this…graduating high school in 2008 and deciding to drop out of college.
I was networking wit a guy named Jojotorius, who asked me to be his DJ at one of his college Frat shows. He said bring your instrumentals and I’m going to put them in major people hands that I am opening for at the college shows. So wit that in motion the first show I walked on stage and the people started to go crazy like I was about to perform.
I don’t know if it was my fashion appeareance or my over all appearance.
Afterwards,
Jojotorius pulled me to the side and said “the people love you. You might wanna think twice about what you’re doing with your music career.”
After that night I told my self I had work to be done and  I started dropping music from that moment on.
I have even made my own instrumentals.
 
 Who would you say is fashion inspiration? What are some of your favorite designer brands if any?
The clothes and brands…hmmm to be honest…I’m a fashion freak and a sneaker geek.  The brand doesn’t matter. If I like it I’ll make it look fashionable…the clothes don’t make me I make the clothes.
 What can the world expect next from Rod Marley?
Currently working on a major project, I’ll be flying out to Atlanta next week to wrap it up.  I have some hot features.
Street money and world wide features. The people will love it.  New work with Duct Tape ent. and Travis Porter coming as well.
You never know what to expect from a young go getter like me.
Stay tuned we got more coming…

I would love to interview more local artist of all kind that are interested in promoting their brand.  

Valentine’s Date Night Look

So that special day that you show your significant other how much you love and adore them is exactly seven days away.

” Love Day”  some people (single folks) hate it and some love it! Me personally, it is not a special day, for the kiddos maybe, but as an adult I’ve learned to celebrate my love through out the year and not just on a particular day.

Any who as of right now I don’t have any plans for V-day but I still want to inspire the ladies that have plans but have no idea what to wear.

Now whether you’re going out with a group of your girl friends or with your hot date you can still spice up your look and give a little sex appeal to spice up your night!

I mean what woman doesn’t like to feel sexy RIGHT???!!!

We’ve all heard the saying “You can’t go wrong with a little black dress” Now y’all know black is my go-to color but I feel the same for a little red dress. For Love Day I decided to spice things up with this little red velvet strapless dress.

I honestly had no idea what I wanted to wear so I bought fabric and played with it until I came up with this strapless number. If you follow me on Snap Chat (aDifferentC) then you saw some of the process. Initially the dress was extremely revealing, actually too revealing for me, so I started over and decided to go for something a little more simple but still sexy and fit all my little curves 🙂

Leave some comments to let me know how I did. (Be easy on me now, I’m not a designer) FullSizeRender-118

I added the leather jacket and lace gloves for some edginess

Now since my face is pretty bland, I added the chandelier earrings and diamond crusted necklace for a spark of Glamour. Believe it or not I sometimes wear the necklace as a crown 🙂 IMG_2429

Although I hand made my dress you can still find something similar at pretty much any trendy boutique or retail store. My jacket is from BeBe and sandal heels are from Steve Madden.

I hope you all enjoyed this inspirational look today.

Also have a Happy Valentine’s Day with your loved ones or even if you’re alone. Take yourself out 🙂

Until next time

be happy, be you

Neutral Makeup on Vitiligo skin

My loves!! Here is a quick updated tutorial on my neutral makeup look. For those that have been rocking with me for a while you may know that my skin is extremely sensitive so I’m always cautious of what I apply to my face.

For those that are new, WELCOME to a DIFFERENT side of things!! If you’re confused, it’s okay just continue to rock with me and eventually you will understand how we do things DIFFERENT around here 🙂

Normally I’ve been using Becca face primer however I saw some great reviews on the Kat Von D primer so I decided to try a sample from Sephora, being that I am already obsessed with her Lock It Foundation.

As you can see a small amount covers my entire face, the absolute BEST foundation I’ve ever used.

For a very light contour I use a small of amount of foundation that is one shade darker than my usual foundation color. I prefer the foundation instead of concealer during this method because the foundation to me blends softer than my LA Girls concealer. DSC02289

I love mixing a white and a bronze high light together!!! No particular reason why, it just looks better with both Bronze highlighter is from beauty supply 🙂 Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 8.14.59 AM

Brows are always simple and to the point. I literally just outline my natural shape then clean it up. (Brows are tough, Keep trying)

My lashes are Kiss KFLD03 fond at Sally’s. Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 2.19.42 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 8.19.46 AM Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 8.20.32 AM

For my hair I’m wearing Yummy Extensions Caribbean Wave from Dec 2015. I’ve cut on it and added highlights to it since then. To see how I straighten this hair, be sure to subscribe to aDC TV to see it next week.

Staple for Fall

image

So as you all know I’m highly anticipating the arrival of Fall. I could not be more excited for my favorite time of the year. It’s never too hot nor too cold during the Autumn months here in North Texas especially here in the DFW area.  image

It’s my favorite season of the year because I get to layer my fashionable life away with layers and more layers   image

My key Staple pieces for Fall will always be a “go to” boot or bootie more likely a bootie though. I’m pretty obsessed with thigh boots as well. I will always and I repeat ALWAYS have a leather jacket on deck for sure haha image

These red hot booties are from last season but you know me. There are no rules so, hey! Which is another reason I’m still walking around with a baby blue BCBG cross body that I picked up this past Spring   image

I completed this look with some leggings that I pulled up all the way to my bra just so they would stop a little past my knees. I left a little space between my leggings and my booties so that each piece of my outfit stood out without the booties and leggings meeting together. Hopefully that made some sense to y’all.

be happy, be you
