Why I’m Choosing a Staycation.

This post is part of a Sponsored series with #Listerine and SocialStars #bringoutthebold  It seems as if everyone around me is preparing to go on epic vacations. I haven’t been on a proper vacation in forever so I’ve become accustomed to living vicariously through everyone else. The main reason we haven’t packed our bags and jet-setted is because each year we choose to use the money for other things, you know like purchasing a home and for the past two years, we’ve been tackling paying off debt.

Yes,You Need a Shea Moisture Shea Butter Luscious Lipstick!

Matte lipsticks are everywhere; they kinda became the “in” thing that most Millennials gravitate towards. While I love a good matte lip, I also love a lipstick that won’t have me questioning whether or not my lips look flakier than a Pillsbury biscuit so when Shea Moisture sent over their Shea Butter Lucious Lipstick line, I dropped my lip scrub and quickly got into formation.  I’m a huge Shea Moisture fan. I love how they’re breaking down the walls when it comes to the Beauty Aisles by making it an all inclusive zone, and I also love that how they incorporate natural… View Post

The invite that was sent out showed some exclusive new items that I already had on my wishlist thanks to SnapChat and Instagram. At this particular VIB Rouge event, we were getting first dibs on several of the new launches. One highly anticipated item, in particular, was the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks which had already been making… View Post
