Review of IndianHair.Net Hair Extensions

Exactly one year ago, I set out on a journey to be a naturalista. I was on a mission to go without applying heat to my hair. I tried perm rods. flat twists, and even a puff, but concluded that wearing natural hairstyles required WAY too much time and effort for me. After that short journey, I returned back to the world of weave (or extensions if you want to be politically correct). For my latest hairstyle, I decided to order hair from IndianHair.Net, but before I dive in to my review I want provide a little extra information about hair extensions in general. (more…)

Royalty in Reality is Officially ONE!

That’s right Royals, Royalty in Reality is officially one year old! I can’t believe how quickly this year has passed and all that I’ve accomplished running the blog in my “spare time”. I also can’t thank the people who have played a role in this journey enough for their loyalty, support, and encouragement. While I am tremendously proud of my little piece of the internet and grateful for all those that have supported it, there is so much more I want to do with Royalty in Reality. (more…)

The Truth About Rent The Runway

We attended our last wedding of the season over the weekend. While I’ve been honored to shower our newly married friends with gifts and love, I am exhausted. Since late August we have attended five weddings, which required four different dresses (two of the weddings were on the same day). Because they were so close to one another, I didn’t want to wear the same dress more than once, but there was no way in the world I could afford four new dresses AND gifts for each couple. I ended up buying two dresses, wearing one I already owned (but had never worn), and renting one from Rent the Runway. This past weekend’s wedding was black tie optional, so it seemed fitting to sport a more formal look for the occasion. (more…)

How to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall

The first day of Fall isn’t until Thursday, but the days are already getting shorter and the temperatures a little cooler. I’m having a hard time accepting the fact that Summer is over. I’m not ready for shorter days or cooler temps, BUT I am welcoming fall fashion with open arms. For right now the weather seems to be a little chilly when the sun is down and hot as heck when it’s not. This makes getting dressed that much more difficult when you’re trying to keep warm during your morning commute, but don’t want to sweat like a big at lunch. Today, I thought I’d share some tips on how to transition your wardrobe from Summer to Fall to make getting dressed in the morning a little bit easier.  (more…)

Keeping Time with My Jord Watch + GIVEAWAY

This post was sponsored by JORD. I received a timepiece in exchange for an honesty review. All words and opinions are mine and mine alone. Please see my full disclosure statement for more information.

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been into time pieces. When I was little, it was all about my g-shock or my Paul Frank watch when I was feeling fancy. As I got older, watches continued to be a part of my daily ensemble. My taste grew from neon colored sports watches to more subtle yet stylish pieces. I was first introduced to Jord Watches a few years ago by a friend who shares my obsession with watches. I was immediately taken aback by how light weight the piece was and the unique concept of a wooden watch. When an opportunity landed in my inbox to select and review one of these watches, I could hardly wait to make my selection.
