Natural Hair ** Products that really work!

Hello Dolls and Divas! 

I like to call myself an Unnatural / Natural Hair type of Girl.  Cause under this Blonde Straight Weave…..

…….is this Natural Tight Curly Hair that I’m always threatening to cut off!


Okay, so I actually purchased the Optimum Amla Legend 10-N-1 Silky Blow Out Elixir / Heat Defense (long name IKR) as a heat defense for my Hair Weave.  Well, this product should be renamed and re-packaged because it actually “Sucks” as a blow out Elixir and Heat Defense!  But determined not to waist my money; I decided to do a Rose’s Re-mix and try it on my natural hair.  I sprayed my freshly washed and conditioned hair with S Curl No Drip Curl Activator & Moisturizer.  Yes I said it!  S Curl! Curl Juice!  “just let your soul glow” Old School!  But it works much better than most of the New Natural Hair Products on the Market!  I then sprayed  squirts of the Optimum  Amla into my hands and rubbed it onto my hair from root to tip! This combo made my hair sooo soft and  manageable!!!!  This is truly a must have!

Rose’s Remix / Combat Nose Shine!

Hello Diva & Dolls!!

I love most things to Sparkle and Shine!  However, my nose is definitely not one of them!!  I have tried everything from Finishing Powder to Rice Paper, which all work  pretty well.  However, I found myself having to keep touching up or blotting numerous times throughout the day!  Uugh!  So one day while I was messing around in the mirror a light bulb went off!  -DING-  Powder fight offs moisture and Alcohol dries out oil!  Sooooo….I decided to mix a little of both in my hand.  It formed a loose type of paste.  I then placed it on my nose.  Once on my nose, it immediately dried “white” but don’t be alarmed once you apply liquid foundation it becomes invisible. (Powder Foundation will NOT work with this method). To my surprise, I went all day with a perfectly matte & unshiny snout!  Follow these instructions for a Super Simple way to REMIX Baby Powder and Alcohol to make Anit-Shine Weapon for your nose.

  • 1) Sprinkle a few dabs of Baby Powder (Any Brand will Work / Cornstarch or Not) into your a free hand.
  • (2)  Dab a few small drops of Alcohol (I like the Evergreen Kind / But any will work) on top of the powder that’s already in your other hand.
  • (3) Take you finger (on your free hand) and mix the alcohol and powder together to form a loose paste.
  • (4) Immediately rub a thin layer of the paste on your nose.  
  • (5) Once completely dry / dust off any excess powder or clumps.
  • (6) Complete by blotting liquid foundation on the nose (using a foundation brush) I recommend the Sonia Kashuk Foundation Brush found at Target stores





Hello world!

Welcome to Atlanta Go 2 Rose!

I’m Rose!  Most of my Friends refer to me as the GO TO GIRL!  Why is that?  You might ask.  Well here goes….

I Have always been a Girl with Champagne Taste. However, being a Single Mother with real life bills and situations causes my budget to usually float somewhere between tap water and Pink Moscato. Therefore, I am a very crafty Target Shopping Frugalista who also loves All things Neiman Marcus!!

I am a self proclaimed Greedy Girlso I love to try different / unique foods,  Which means that, you can find me anywhere from the Sundial in Atlanta to Ms. Willie Mae’s Scotch House in New Orleans! BTW I love concocting quick and easy recipes and you are more than welcome to be my GuineaPig  Girl.  I would love for you to try them out, love them, and share them with the world!

I love to travel and  I love even more to share my fun with Family and Friends. And don’t worry I’m always giving tips on where to stay and what to do!

I am super nosy or as I like to say “Know-See” and my Daughter  always refers to me as the friend of the Famous friend, because I always know someone who knows some Celebrity…So I know a little Celebrity Gossip  -wink,wink-

I am so grateful to be able to share my journeys, my travels, and my life with you.  Hope you enjoy the ride and pick up a few beauty tips on the way!!!
