…And They Continue to Flow

5 Aug

It rained today in my city and like most I fell asleep during the slight storm. Waking up, the first thing on my mind was food 😀 lol (I’m such a foodie). The next thing I did was check my BBerry for what I missed during my slumber. Before I fell asleep, Twitter was down 😦 , Facebook was slow 8o and Viigo was acting all stank 😡 … I was sure that I had missed plenty lol! Boy was I right about missing things! I checked my email and sitting there waiting on me was the very thing I had been waiting for all month! From the Secretarty of State, my Certificate of Organization was attached, signed, sealed and delivered! I’m so ecstatic, excited, over joyed and totally stoaked to announce that DollFace Productions is a Domestic Limited Liability Company!!!! We are an entity meaning no one can operate under my name or attempt to take my ideas (how awesome is that?).

Words can’t express how proud I am of myself for getting to this point. I know that there are many more accomplishments to achieve but for just a little while, I’m going to sit here in this moment and really enjoy it. This definitely calls for a bottle of bubbly with my favorite few and a BIG toast to DollFace Productions LLC!!!! None of this would be possible, of course, without He who is Most High. I give Him all the praise, honor, glory and respect for this dream. He is my head and I will forever keep Him at the for front of DollFace Productions. The blessings just keep on flowing.

Cheers to you DollFace *raises glass*

School Daze

20 Jul

ALERT! ALERT!! ALERT!!!

MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE

VERY IMPORTANT NEWS TBA

DollFace Productions is going back to school babydolls! *snaps for the kid*  I am past excited, beyond pumped and totally stoaked! *fist pump*

As I posted yesterday, I have a few things in the works for DollFace Productions; plans for expansion, branding and TOTAL WORLD DOMINATION [EVL] LOL. Seriously though, I am building my empire from the ground up everyday so I’m taking it back to school. This time to get a Master Cosmetology license (along with a few other licensures ). Not only will I produce quality products for hair and skin, I will specialize in quality hair and skin care services primarily catering to naturals!

I know some may look at me and think “why in the world is she going to school for that?! She has a degree!” and to them I say: You can never have enough education. Yes, I have a degree from a four year school but that ONE degree doesn’t give me the keys to open every door in front of me, limiting myself  and making it that much harder to reach the top. Nothing will stand in my, especially not lack of education so YES I’m going to HAIR SCHOOL (insert urban dialect)!

Whatever you do babydolls, make sure you do it TOP NOTCH! Be the best at what you do and always ensure that your game is TIGHT and ON POINT. Learn as much as you can and take your skills seriously… to stay on top you have to stay ahead of the game. I encourage you all to follow your dreams and let no one talk you out of something because of their preconceived notions or qualms. This is YOUR life and you only get one shot… there are no do overs so don’t live with regrets and “coulda- shoulda-wouldas”. Do you and believe in yourself… the ‘na sayers will eat their words when you’re on top sitting OH SO PRETTY 😉

Quick Updates 7/19

19 Jul

Happy Monday DollFace!!!! I awoke to a bright and sunny day this morning! I hope that you all are having a very enjoyable Monday and that the day continues to be an awesome one for you.

Today’s post is very quick. I have a few updates for you all and an even bigger “To Do” list for myself. Great, wonderful, marvelous and awesome things are happening here at DollFace Productions. God has really put His hand all up in it and opened doors for me. I’m so excited for what’s to come! There are some things that I can’t share at this moment but rest assured that as they begin to unfold and take flight, I will be posting and updating you all.

So on to the updates: Well as some of you may have read from my Facebook page and tweets, the raw materials that I was so patiently awaiting finally arrived! I woke up last Wednesday morning to the sound of the screen door closing and the UPS truck pulling off… nothing as ever sounded sweeter that early in the morning LOL. I got to work immediately on a nu hair product (a post to follow shortly). It is currently in the hands- and hair-  of my eager testers, giving it a try. I’m very anxious to hear the feedback for this one!

DollFace is also currently undergoing a “move” of sorts. I’m running out of space here at my house to store all of my materials so to accommodate things, I am making space anyway I can and storing some things with a few good friends of mine. Production is still going to be a little slow while I transition through this so please patient and forgiving with me. Also, affected by this is Makeup Monday. Sorry but today there won’t be any pics of makeup looks. Not to fret though my dear, I will have some posted by the weekend!

Lastly,  I need some ideas/ input! I welcome all comments and suggestions. Let me know what you guys think, what you would like to see (makeup and product wise), any comments you may have. To kick-start this, there is a poll below for you to answer. I’m in search of a nu natural fragrance so tell me what your favs are and if your fav isn’t on the list then write me and tell me about it!

La-la-laAAahh Lavender Face Cleanser FEEDBACK

6 Jul

Last week I posted about the face cleanser that I whipped up. I’m coming back today with some feedback from a loyal product tester. She used it for a week in place of her Mary Kay facial cleanse for Combo skin. Below are her thoughts.

The face cleanser has an easy application and a clean rinse! I didn’t have that tight feeling like my skin had been stretched after using the cleanser as well. The lavender fragrance was a smidge over powering for my taste so maybe [she will] cut back on the amount of lavender oil used next time. My skin felt great, clean and refreshed. I had moisture without greasiness and the smell of the lavender is very relaxing.

I posted my thoughts on the original post so I won’t repeat them. I’ve ordered more supplies and once they arrive I can whip up another batch; this time my goal is to improve texture and viscosity. I would like a smoother textured cream with a thicker consistency. I also plan to cut back on the amount EO I used… I agree the smell was a little over powering. Lastly, I changed the name of the cleanser (subject to change again lol)… what do you think of this name? I think its short enough to fit on a label and catchy enough to attract my target market without being a gimmick. Feedback is needed PUHLEASE!

Until next time baby dolls!

Peace and Blessings

Wave Pomade Feedback

25 Jun

I have another product review for you guys. This one is from my booski who tried the wave pomade. Here’s what he had to say

Okay give me a moment to step out my boyfriend aka booski role… Quick to the point, I like it.  I typically use Pro-line wave control pomade as well as Pro-line wave and styling gel (use both at the same time). I can honestly say that her pomade is able to give wave control like regular wave grease and also give you the moisture just like wave & style gel.  I did notice flakes in my hand from pomade but not in my hair- little soap and water can cure that problem.  I would like to mention that I do not have naturally wavy hair but my hair received shine and waves .  I rubbed a wet towel [all] over my head and the pomade came out easily. It has a great smell too.

I also gave a sample to my mother and aunt for their thoughts as well. Both have close cut ceasars (that they rock FIIIEEERCEly might I add). They love it! I plan to interview them for an update to this post.

So far i have received really positive feedback from my testers and thats very encouraging. My thoughts? Well personally, the smell is to die for! It is so fresh and clean and crisp… like a sunny day! The consistency? Ehh not so much. When I think of pomade I think of thick consistency, although many newer versions of pomade are lighter and silkier. So again, I’m dissatisfied with the texture of the product but the good news is that I have found a way to conquer this and achieve the consistency and texture I desire. I do like the moisturizing effects though. Its jammed packed with moisturizers anyways so I expected this. The wave enhancement that the pomade provides is really nice too. The wave pattern in the pics above are even better up close [SEA SICK]! On a females hair who may not be so concerned with waves, the pomade lays the hair down and gets rid of the fly-a- ways. Overall I’m extremely happy with the pomade. At the time I made it, my hair was straight so I’m excited to try it on my curly hair!
