18 AND TOTALLY LEGAL!!!

Tashika Bailey | 18 AND TOTALLY LEGAL!!!
October 7th was a special day for me. Not only was it my birthday, but it was my first milestone. My big ONE. EIGHT. WHOOOOOP!! I'm an adult now. I'm 18 but I still look like I'm 16 loool I'm very aware. It's a blessing and a curse.

Tashika Bailey | 18 AND TOTALLY LEGAL!!!The one thing that all my friends, family and generally everyone found strange, was the fact that I didn't "celebrate." I actually did "celebrate", just not in the common traditional way of throwing a huge party or going out with friends and family. I'm not a traditional person so I decided not to "celebrate" traditionally, but to "celebrate" my first milestone in my own little way... I realized that it's MY birthday so instead of going out, why not experience something that I haven't experienced before. Treat myself. Taking that into consideration, I spent the week pampering myself and getting a number of luxury beauty treatments.
I know that most people might think it's a bit weird to get all dressed up, make up on point and eyebrows on fleek, but actually not go anywhere, but did it for myself. You know what they say when you look good you feel good.

As a part of my 18th birthday pamper week, I wanted to experience something new within beauty, something I haven't done before. I remember seeing my friends eyebrows they're always on fleek and always looking neat and her face is so smooth and clear. I was so surprised and fascinated, I asked her how she does her eyebrows and what she use on her face because it's so flawless, she told me her eyebrows are tinted and she doesn't use anything on her face but she has regular facials. Immediately I was inspired to get my eyebrows tinted and do a couple facials to get the same results as her. She recommend the beauty salon where she does her beauty treatments which is Dak Sheen's Hair and Beauty.

Of course I had to visit Dak Sheen's Hair and Beauty Salon to get my eyebrows on fleek and my face looking smooth and clear. I got my eyebrows tinted for the first time, in the shade dark brown which I was very impressed with. I also treated myself to a Microdermabrasion facial. At first I was a bit unsure weather to choose the Microdermabrasion facial or a different one because I haven't done facials before, but when the beauty therapist explained what it was, the process and the benefits; I knew it would be beneficial for my skin.

She explained that ultra fine microcrystals are used on the skin to deeply exfoliate it and remove its outer layer. Simultaneously an advanced skin vacuum sweeps up the crystal and removes the skins outer layer. This facial has the benefits of reuivenating the skin and leaving it looking young and fresh. It also decreases the appearance  of acne, scars, superficial hyper-pigmentation and blackheads and whiteheads.
The problem that I have with my skin is that it is quite oily bring young I get a lot of spots which leave marks and scars. I also tend to get lots of blackheads which is why the microdermabrasion facial was perfect for me.

While I was at Dak Sheen's I decided to try eyelash extensions for the first time. I had the singles but not the mink ones. I was very pleased with the results and I loved the way they looked. However, I was disappointed with the durability as some started falling out from my left eye after a week, and I had to take the off within less than two week. The price would be worth it if they have lasted longer but for me it wasn't worth it.
My complete pamper beauty treatment included the Microdermabrasion facial, my eyebrows shaped and tinted, eyelashes extensions, my nails done, my hair done and a foot spa.

While looking on Boohoo I saw this lovely mesh detailed maxi dress and I fell in love with it. I decided it was the perfect dress for my 18th birthday and I just had to buy it. I styled it with a lovely white two part heels and flats when I couldn't bare the heels anymore, a nice statement necklace, a headband which added that extra WOW! And as it was a little chilly I pulled the outfit together with a maxi duster coat. For me, it was the ultimate 18th birthday outfit. I received so much compliments about my outfit and I was constantly asked throughout the day where I got my dress, heels and coat from, which was extremely flattering.
