SINNER IN THE CITY will be moving to Wordpress in short time. I love tumblr and I always have but I need to make the blog more accessible to everyone, not just the tumblr community. But I will be keeping a personal tumblr with more images less text, just for fun as I have for the last 3 years.
Peace & Pieces Xxx

It’s no secret that I love and live in leggings. They’re comfy, easy and versatile and anyone who says you can’t (or shouldn’t) wear them as pants, can kick cliffs. I love leggings. It seems that for about a year or more now, I’ve been trying different leggings from various stores to figure out who has the perfect leggings..or close enough.
WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR IN LEGGINGS?
First and foremost, high degree of opacity. I don’t need the world seeing my everything. I prefer leggings with a wider waistband because they’re more comfy to me and feel more like actual pants. Plus, I need leggings that are made of stretchy materials that will move with me and not against me. Last but not least, a good pair of leggings must have some thickness to it..I’ve got junk in the trunk, I need sturdy, not flimsy leggings.
But after trying leggings from Forever 21, H&M, Old Navy, and Target, I finally found the perfect leggings for Tinks. All this time guess who had them and I never knew, ZARA!
Now don’t laugh at me but this past Friday was my first time actually buying anything in Zara. I’ve always done a hit & quit it with Zara but never really dug into how awesome their clothing is. Sad, I know. But I found my new favorite leggings there and I could not be more satisfied. Here are the heaven sent pair of leggings:
I never thought that I would spend over 30 bucks for a single pair of leggings but I’m glad I did. “You get what you pay for.” I’m off to get another pair this week. You can find them in-stores & online. Tinka’s in love.
Peace & Pieces!
It’s that time again, wash day. Everyone that knows me, also knows that I’m all about weave. There’s not one bone in my body that hates weave. I love the fact that I can alleviate the stress off of my own texlaxed hair and try different looks.
Anyway, most weavalicious women know that a fresh weave calls for clean scalp & hair . There is nothing more horrid than a gorgeous weave with a funk coming from it. NO BUENO. Every weave-wearer should wash/co-wash their hair at least 1x a week or bi-weekly but it depends on each person and what your hair/scalp needs. I usually go for every Wednesday because my scalp sweats horribly when I workout. I tried to stay consistent and go to the hair salon for my wash & sets but I like to do it myself, it’s therapeutic and I get to save $$$.
My go-to virgin hair company is Same Girl Different Hair and I’m forever loyal to Mia Ray and the luscious hair she provides. I have a more low-maintenance weave installed now (with all my own hair braided) with the Brazilian Body Wave. I don’t overdo it with super expensive products or with too many products because I like simple and apparently, so does this hair. Sometimes less is more.
HOW I KEEP MY EXTENSIONS FRESH (REGIMEN):
WHAT I USE TO KEEP MY EXTENSIONS FRESH:
There it is ladies! Please don’t hesitate to immerse your heads in some water, trust me, nobody likes a funky weave. That’s a no no. Set the time aside in your schedule to either DIY, those fabulous Dominicans or go to your trusted stylist. Your hair is your crown, whether you grew it or you bought it.
Peace & Pieces!

I’m so excited to go to the master classes, seminars and networking parties. There is always room for improvement and knowledge. Ladies, never stop educating and putting your best foot forward. No matter what; children, love, partying or whatever…just make sure you ensure your future.
