state of sparkle

I started this blog with one thing on my mind: fashion. & how to bring it to the streets of my native land // our nation's capital. While fashion will always remain the focus of this blog, many readers have recently been asking about the hair & makeup products I use & for tutorials on hairstyles they see in outfit posts. I've been trying my best to answer these inquiries outside of the blogosphere as it has never been my main focus here at District Sparkle. But the time has come & I now feel the need to take this to the streets. 
So, loyal readers, this is where you come in. Are you interested in reading hairstyle tutorials & posts disclosing the products I use every now & again or should I continue to keep that material out of your daily dose of sparkle? Let's use the comment section below as an open forum to discuss.

For now, I'm giving in [just a bit] & sharing my absolute-cannot-live-without-nearly-die-when-my-stock-runs-out-must-have daily am beauty products.

  3. I would love to see a video of how you curl your hair. If you could also get me over my fear of eyeliner, well then I think a prize might be coming your way.

  14. I agree with the above readers! It's nice to see what other beauty essentials are out there- I'm always willing to try something new! Also, it sort of feels like I'm snooping, but without the guilty feeling ;)
