Thank you for joining me

This is a long time coming. Something that has been requested and demanded for many moons. I went back and forth and I am glad to finally be here.  I knew I had to be in the right space mentally and emotionally. Ready to share my story and be open to those that would visit my blog daily.  While I will be discussing my tresses, and food and drinks, thinks will get real from time to time and that's when "A Lovely Lupie" takes over and shares her life. Again, I thank you for joining me and  I welcome you to Curls n' Cocktails. Cheers.

“She has a way with words, red lipstick, and making an entrance” -Kate Spade

It is no surprise to a lot of people I despise the “mirror selfie”. That selfie where you’re facing the (sometimes dirty) mirror with your phone and snapping always ATTEMPTING to get you’re entire look. My issue with this is the following:
