It Cosmetics Fall 2017 New Products

Last week Christmas in August happened over at the Being Melody offices when It Cosmetics dropped off their Fall 2017 launches. It Cosmetics has some pretty amazing products, especially in the skincare and makeup brush area. When it comes to the makeup, it can be hit or miss only because most of the shades don’t fit women of color. I generally get lucky as the I can sometimes wear the color “rich” which is the second to the darkest shade available.  With that being said, there is still some amazing looking products concept wise in this upcoming release that I…

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media. It seems that the older I get, the more the days and seasons seem to just blur together.

So, why in 2017 is this something we’re still discussing? When I found out that I’d be receiving the new Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist Supernatural Concealers, which launch on August 4th, I…

I Deleted Over 6K Facebook Fans and Here’s Why.

This past weekend I finally had enough of less than 1% of my 17,000 Facebook fans seeing the post I put on my brand Facebook Page. I understand Facebook has this weird algorithm that makes it practically impossible for people to see your stuff, and you have to pay to play, and you should do this and that or go viral, but I was tired of trying putting my all into my content only for no one to see it.

Alizé Apple Mint Lemonade Refresher

This post was sponsored on behalf of Alizé via One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own. The past few summers I’ve been sharing some delicious girls night out cocktail recipes with you all and I couldn’t let the summer go by without giving you another one. This time we’re pouring up Alizé Apple an intensely unique and inviting, yet succulent infusion of ripe, delicious apples delicately blended with premium French Vodka. I’ve been really into refresher type drinks lately, especially the Pink Drink from Starbucks or the Watermelon Lemonade from Chick-fil-A. With Chick-fil-a not being open on Sundays and the Pink Drink making my…
