HARAJUKU....Tuesday's Child

Well Samayah has been loving this 1st week of not wearing a uniform to school.   I guess she feels like her old self again. Since she started school at 3 she was always dressed up for school.  

Last year I decided to go with a uniform of khakis and blue or yellow/gold polo which are her school colors.

School Uniform

She mentioned last week that she didn't want to wear a uniform anymore because she is the only 1 in her class that does.   I found it to be easy and it really preserves her other clothing, I mean seriously kids come home with their snacks, lunch, paint and God know what else on their clothes.

Here is what she wore yesterday to school...

No Uniform...yay

Pants: Harajuku Target (gifted from friend)

I took these photos the other day on our way to visit my girls are so good at waiting on the porch for me while I lock up. I took advantage of this by pulling out my camera a making it a mini photo shoot but I couldn't resist...they looked so cute.  Their hair looks amazing right after the bath and their leave in conditioner.

I knew that by the time I got to my mother's the hair accessories would be somewhere in the truck and who knows what food/drink spots would be where. LOl

So here they are my little stylish sisters..


She did this on her own...mama was proud!

Love this hoodie w/ the tee

She looked cute with her zebra wellies

Look at those curls

I did a review of a hair product line called Mixed Chicks on my Lucky 7 Design blog and I thought it would be a great idea to share some of their information on here as well since this is my family fashion blog.  You can see that review HERE.

If you haven't heard of Mixed Chicks you can find out more info by going to their website HERE

I used the products on both my daughters KeKe (19mos) and Maya J (4 yrs).  Yes they happen to be mixed chicks (black caribbean,irish,italian,puerto rican) but this product is good for anyone with a curl/frizz dilemma.  Which we had both of..... my girls have 2 different types of hair.

KeKe has short and extremely kinky tight corkscrew curls

 before finding Mixed Chicks

Mama J has long curls that get frizzy and tangled quickly

before finding Mixed Chicks

I can't tell you how much I love this product line, it's not a change in the way you would normally care for your hair.  It's Wash, Condition and then a Leave-in Conditioner.......the magic is all in the bottles.  No extra time or fuss same routine but with amazing results.

I hosted a little giveaway on my other blog for someone to try a little sample kit of this magic, so Im going to do the same thing here.


Just leave a comment below and tell me what issue you or your children are having.  That's your entry!

Here is proof from this morning......Maya J took a bath before bed last night and usually wakes up with a mop of frizz and it is a process to fix it without combing out all the curl into frizz.

This morning we used our NEW Kids Tangle - Tamer and this is how we are looking!  We are also wearing our Mixed Chicks rock is just too cute!

For more view of transformations, check out the gallery kids page of the Mixed Chick Website HERE

Good Luck....giveaway will run until Sunday at midnight!

Thought I would share some photos of my daughter and her girlfriends tonight for their High School Halloween Dance.   This is her last year attending because she is a Senior (it's a big deal) lol.

Now the costume is a mix of a Chola/Pin up     The inspiration came from a character in a Selena Gomez trailer for MTV's Europe Music Awards.

This is the video clip and the 2 Selena characters..

Selena in Chola mode

This is what they wanted to dress up as this year

Casara, Sarah , Gabriella

My little Chola Gabi

Munchkin Chola Casara

I think they did a good job, they picked the outfits on their own, did their makeup.   I would have wanted a little more specific things but hey it's not my dance...right?

Just a mama who is a perfectionist...but they look beautiful!!!!
