The many adventures of Culture Fuzz has brought us to the streets of Los Angeles, 54th and Los Angeles to be more specific and what brought us there was something that has been nagging at me for the past couple of years now... my first wig. Yep, my vanity. And I decided to take you guys with me.
I really don't know what I was expecting for my first wig shopping experience, I guess my mind washed mind was thinking I would walk into some wig shop owned by a Korean lady who would not let me try anything on. I would have to use my imagination really really hard and determine just by guessing which wig would look best. Well let me tell you my experience was the complete opposite. We ventured over to Beautiful Wig and Hair over on Crenshaw and it was a phenomenal experience. I didn't get the name of the woman who helped my make my wig selection, according to Yelp I believe her name is Erma, but she was so nice and helpful. Most importantly she gave HONEST answers and I felt good about my wig selection. I ended getting a really nice synthetic wig that can take low heat.
Did I mention the selection over there was HUGE?
I'm not sure what everyone's opinions are on wigs but I always thought they were great and so much fun. It's an excellent way to protect your natural hair if you're like me and don't like to take heat to your hair anymore and believe it or not, there are ways to get long thick hair under a wig easily. It's going to take me some practice but I have witnessed that it's absolutely possible.
Kylie Jenner | Concealor Release
On December 13 Kylie Cosmetics will be releasing 30 shades of concealer for her fancier silver line juuuuuust in time for the holidays. It's really great to see all of the well know makeup lines take a page out of Rihanna's book with her Fenty Beauty line and expanding the selection of color for all skin colors. The biggest missing niche in my opinion were color selections for women with much darker skin complexions. Bravo Kylie! I can't wait to see what the bloggers and reviewers will think of the product. Hell, who knows, I might even partake in the review.
Bitcoin | Coinbase
New investment alert! Living in this generation where knowledge is the future I have never before in my life hear such emphasis of making sure to invest your money. Create a portfolio, educate yourself on what your investing and watch it grow. That brings me to the new investment bandwagon, BitCoin. I'm sure all of you know all about it by now but may not know exactly how to invest. That's okay, I'm in the same boat as you, I don't know shit about investing. But again, living in this amazing time of knowledge and information it's easier than ever before to do research and educate yourselves.
The number one piece of advice I'm getting is to purchase "Bitcoin for Dummies" which yah, sure is an excellent series of books that puts into lamen terms how to understanding that originally may have been complicated, but ultimately I say find a reliable and accurate source that resonates with you. There is no wrong way to learn just be careful on where your information comes from.
I also found this online article that super breaks down what BitCoin actually is:
So! That brings me to CoinBase, which is a secure online platform for buying, selling, transferring, and storing digital currency. It's very user friendly and pretty easy to understand given that you are already introduced to BitCoin.
Acorns | Investment App
Again, this is an app made specifically for people like me who don't know the first thing about investing. Another user friendly interface and they have fantastic step by step instructions. You answer a few questions to build your profile, link your bank and credit cards and you're all set. What's really great about this app is that it keeps track of all your transactions and then takes the left over change to invest and spread out into different stock. It's a pretty amazing concept. I just downloaded it like a week a go so I'm still getting used to it but I'm excited to get my feet wet into the investment world.
With the work force changing more and more job benefits like 401k's and retirement plans are no longer being offered to employees, and at the rate things are going with social security it would be foolish to believe that's going a reliable source to depend on once retirement time is reached. Invest. Teach yourself how to invest because the school system isn't going to show you how to do that.
