I’m back from my vacation (read about it here).  Well, I’ve been back for one week now.  Boy,  am I missing being on vacation.  If you follow me on Instagram (MakeupbyKimPorter) you would have seen some of the pictures from my trip, as well as my new hair!



I haven’t had a weave like this since 2006 or 2007.  This time around I opted to invest in the “good hair”, which can be left curly or straightened out.   Plus, you can use it multiple times; therefore, you get more bang for your buck.   My hair was installed by Sonia from Shic Hair, Nail & Beauty Bar in Brooklyn, NY.  I’ve been doing well with maintaining it.  One thing I do not miss about it is drying it! That is torture!  Anyway, so far I love it.  I thought my husband would hate it, but, he ended up loving it, too.



I used the flexi rods to keep the top portion of my hair curled


What did I bring to make my trip easier?

1.  My Sony a35 Camera to take pictures during the trip 🙂 I need to get a 75×300 lense for it.  Any recommendations?


2. Perfume

These (Chanel Chance & Nanette Lepore Eau de Parfum) have been my favorite scents, especially the Curations  Eau de Parfum by Stefani Greenfeld.



3.  Skincare


Just because I’m on vacation does not mean my skincare routine is as well.  Along with me came the following:


Clarisonic MIA

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

CeraVe Skin AM & PM facial moisturizer

Sugar Scrub

Kiss My Face SPF 30

Bite Blocker – The mosquitos love me!

Artistry Eye Makeup Remover


4.  Cosmetics

The extra zuca bags I had came in handy to store some of my favorite lippies, eyeshadows, blush and bronzer.  Not shown in this pic, but, I toted with me my favorite tinted moisturizer at the moment, OCC Moisture Tint. 




I brought my makeup brushes… hence the brush roll

MAC Wonder Woman ‘Golden Lariat’ compact.  I’m pissed because this actually broke. 

Customized INGLOT lipstick palette

Nature’s Beauty Works Facial Cleansing Wipes
