How to Cure Dry Itchy Scalp and Dandruff with Natural Hair

This is a sponsored conversation with Head & Shoulders and all opinions are my own. Thank you for allowing me to share brands I love. As a card carrying naturalista, I can honestly tell you that rocking natural hair is no easy task. On the days when my curls seamlessly fall into formation, I find myself falling in love, but on the days when each curl has their own agenda, I seriously have thoughts of reverting to chemically straightened hair.

Revive Stressed Skin with the SheaMoisture Dragon Blood and Coffee Cherry Collection

Hey, Readers! We are T-10 days in counting before I defend my Ph.D. Dissertation and I can’t wait because I legit miss blogging.

I’ve been talking a lot about skincare lately and so today I wanted to focus on a skincare product that’s not getting as much love as it used to now that Sheet Mask have hit the scene. Don’t get me wrong I love how easy it is to just pop open a sheet mask and put it on your face, I also love how portable they are which equals no fuss and no mess, but for me, there is something about a good traditional face mask that will always have my heart.  Depending on your skin type it’s a good…

Get the Look! Smokey Purple with e.l.f Cosmetics

In my previous post, I shared with you all some of my favorites from e.l.f cosmetics, which I still can’t believe I waited so long to try.  Since I’m doing this thing where I’m making a serious effort to use the makeup in my stash, I decided it would only be right for me to share with you this Smokey Purple look I created using some of the e.l.f cosmetics items. For my eyes, I used the e.l.f Prism Eyeshadow Palette in “Smoke” along with the e.l.f Clay Eyeshadow Palette in “Necessary Nudes.” I decided to do a HALO eye…
