If you've been following along you know I recently took a flying leap into the 21st century and traded in my pre-paid Metro PCS phone for the iPhone5. Thanks to my new phone I'm also able to use new apps like Instagram, a free photo sharing program and social network that allows users to find beautiful photos using keywords marked by a hashtag (example #whatiwore = photos of users' daily outfits). Effective Instagram users upload a photo they've taken with their iPhone, choose a filter that adds an artsy touch to their photo, then categorize the photo using popular hashtags. Check out the photos I've been "instagramming" lately and follow me on Instagram (username: breaellis); Don't own an iPhone? View my Instagram photos here.

Oh What A Night~ Thanks to a tip from the BLM Girls I had an amazing night out celebrating the natural, healthy hair and positive, impactful lyrics of singer/songwriter Elle Varner. "ROOTED IN STRENGTH: A toast to your inner beauty!" was held at Shadow Room a Vegas inspired nightclub located in the "lobbyist district" of the city on K Street; the venue and event organizers chose a select group of fashion and beauty bloggers to cover the event instead of traditional press. 
We were ushered through an underground tunnel to a super secret location within the club (there was even a special elevator involved) and then in we walke…
