Hello my candied strawberries!!!!
Wow, I can’t believe my last blog post was 10 months ago! How insane is that?? Talk about life taking over!! How have you all been?
Ugh, I’ve been really busy and if you have followed me all these years, you know I rarely slow down and I end up doing a zillion projects and just end up going MIA. Again, I apologize but I have good reasons!!! LOL.
So if you all follow me on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook etc., you know that I have been acting and doing a lot of extra work on the television show Grimm. It’s been so amazing and I am doing all of this while working a regular job and trying to keep up with my fashion and beauty endeavors as well. It’s been hard work!
So many interesting things have happened to me and I just can’t wait to continue to share everything with you all.
So, I have a Tumblr as well and that pretty much also syncs with my Instagram at times and it’s all about my acting and daily life stuffs. Please follow so we can stay in touch! The name of my Tumblr is Love – Kai Wiley. I’ve met so many of you through my blog and mutual passion for beautiful things and I just love getting to know you and sharing experiences.
I will be posting here again and posting updated youtube videos so look forward to that as well! Man, I love you guys for sticking around and continuing to read my blog! I hope you learn something and it makes your day!!
Until Next Time…
LOVE, PEACE, AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS!
I have had a heck of a week which I will update you guys on once I’ve had a moment to rest + get myself sorted. Until then, I have a new review for you!!! Yay!!
I was lucky enough to try out the MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil (Click here to read more about the product) + I must say, I am impressed! This product has improved my hair so so much. The product is said to help minimize thinning hair, add in needed nutrients + can promote hair growth. The oil smells nice + light but luxurious! The cap to this is a dropper which is really nice because you can control the amount of product you use…a little goes a long way (I show this in a vid on my instagram). The packaging looks amazingly sleek + chic + just really draws your eye to it! Definitely a beautiful high end goodie you must try out!!!!
HOW I USE IT:
After I wash my hair, I pat dry really well with a town then apply some leave in conditioner, After .I brush/comb my conditioner through, I add in the oil to my ends and then I massage it into my scalp. After those steps, I just let my hair air dry + once it does…OMG, my hair is so so soft + shiny. BEAUTIFUL!!
MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:
I totally give this product a 5 out of 5 because not only did I see instant result after my first use (and still to this day), but I have seen growth as well + that’s major for me since I’ve been trying to grow my hair out + for a bit it grew then just stalled but this definitely gave it that extra boost to start growing again. Oh + I forgot, you can use this on your body as well!! The only con I think of at the moment is the price. On the website this product retails for $99!! That’s a lot of money but if you want to splurge….DO IT!! Hahahaha. All in all, I am happy with this product + once I’m out I will probably purchase this again + try more of the MONAT products as well.
I hope this was informative for you + I will be back soon with more post so stay tuned!!
Until Next Time…
So, I know it’s been a long time since I said I would be blogging and posting on YouTube again but my life has been crazy busy!! Let me fill you in on the deets.
I just moved to a new apartment. I did have an apartment with my roommate but that wasn’t working so I moved out. Sometimes you just need your own space. Now that I’m in my new place, once I paint and get a few things, I can start making youtube videos again!! Yay!
I bought this pretty (and inexpensive ($1)) wrapping paper that I plan to use as my filming background. I am also working on purchasing lighting so I can do Makeup tutorials and fashion videos.
Here are a few pics of my apartment:
Right now that’s all I have. My bedroom is just storage space at the moment and the kitchen needs some cleaning and organization.
Another thing that has changed in my life is my boyfriend! I haven’t been in a relationship for a long time and I met him and well, things changed. He’s sweet, nerdy, a cutie pie and his name is Charlie. He’s so fun to be around so I’m really glad we met!
I’ve been working a lot lately and that’s not only my 8-5 gig but my business as well. I’ve been away from Chic n’ Black Styling for a while because I’m working on new endeavours for the company. I think the next step will be our accessories and lingerie line. It’s so exciting but so much work!! In the end though, it will all be worth it!
My regular job has been insane too and I’ve been going through a lot of changes there as well. I will update you guys soon on that information, it’s exciting stuff!!
Overall, life has been crazy but a huge blessing all at the same time. I definitely have been having some tough issues to deal with so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s life, not fair yet surprising! I’m excited to get back to blogging and making YouTube vids for everyone!! If you have any suggestions let me know and I will start working on the YouTube suggestions I received as well. I thank you guys for your support as always and can’t wait to be back!!
LOVE, PEACE AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS

((POST I ADDED TO MY COMPANY BLOG: CHIC N BLACK STYLING))
So, I (Kai) and the Chic n’ Black crew have been away for a loooong time! Life, moving, projects and work have consumed our time so things have fallen a wee bit behind. WE ARE SOOOOO SORRY 😦
I am working really hard to sort out my schedule so that I can get back on track with updating the Chic n’ Black Styling website and creating really fun videos for the CNBS Youtube channel and also to keep up with the CNBS facebook fanpage. Please hang on because I have a lot of fun things I want to do and share with you all.
One of the biggest changes for us was the move one of my best friends/assistant (hehehe) and I made. WE MOVED TO PORTLAND, OR!
I am trying to get the company up and moving here as well as continue to keep things moving in Cincinnati, Ohio as well. It’s now only two of us offically and we still have a great group of volunteers helping us to make things happen!! We are blessed for sure!
On 06/16/2012 CNBS was part of the Urban Glam by Jamie Fashion Show. We were one of the many sponsors to help put the show together. WE started working on this project in February and once we moved to Portland in May, continued to work on the project via emails, video chat, and phone. Congrats to Jamie!!
Here is a link to an article about the event: http://local.cincinnati.com/share/news/story.aspx?sid=193975
I am trying to put together an amazing fashion show to showcase CNBS here in Portland. I’m thinking…hmmmm….lots of black, sparkle and DIVADOM!! Yes Yes….We will have fun!
::WHAT’S TO COME::
We are working on fun videos for our Youtube channel as well as fun fashion giveaways and of course, tips, ticks and trends….and non trends hahaha. I am looking into ways to bring in more philanthropy based projects as well as bigger and challenging projects as well. I am also going to be updating my beauty blog and adding giveaways and reviews for those who enjoy that! (http://awkwardly-beautiful.blogspot.com)
Overall, we have a lot to sort out and a lot we are working on bringing to you so please continue your patience with us and trust you will not be disappointed! WE LOVE YOU LIKE A LOVE SONG BABY!!!! Hahahah LOl.
Until next time…
So I decided to add something new to my blog. Tell me what you think??
NEW: Kai’s Fabulous Confessions:
1. Just because you’re beautiful does NOT mean you can get a man! It can be tough for anyone.
2. Sometimes I love the smell of mens frangrance and at times will dab it on my wrist, especially Prada.
3. You don’t need to be rich to be fabulous! It’s all how you present yourself.
4. Being a selfish brat is not at all sexy or fabulous….GET IT TOGETHER!! Here today gone tomorrow.
5. Don’t judge people for the situations they are in or for something they have gone through….you never know what may have started it!
6. Eat well and play, life is ours and we shouldn’t take things too seriously….
7. ….However there is no harm in being cautious. 😉
8. I love spoiling my family, friends, significant other (when I have one) and of course myself. Why not? Just make sure no one is taking advantage of you!
9.A kiss can bring a giant to his knees! True story!!
10. Fashion is my passion and accessories are my weakness….Gotta love them!!
