Bring Out the Bold this Fall with a New Wardrobe.

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ One of the boldest things I did this year was a clean out my closet and create a capsule wardrobe. It’s been one of the most fulfilling and one of the most stressful things thing I’ve ever done. On one hand, I can now wake up, go to my closet and put together a cute outfit in less than five minutes. On the other hand,it takes some intense planning and saving to make sure that I’ve coordinated great items that will work well together for the…

The Make Up For Ever Products You Need For a Flawless Complexion

As a beauty blogger, I try out products from several brands. I wouldn’t say that I’m loyal to any one brand, but I do have favorites. One of those favorites is Make Up For Ever.

It was there that I learned some serious makeup application techniques that helped me step my game up thanks to their Make Up Mastery Classes.  Today I’m sharing with you some of my absolute favorite Make Up For…

The hardest part about having my hair pressed as a child was the full 24hrs I wasn’t allowed to act like a child for fear my hair would revert to its…

There is always something fun and new coming out that I just have to try, though to be quite honest, I usually find myself reverting back to my tried and true staples. My antiperspirant, on the other hand, is something that I don’t mess with. Growing up I had what my Grandmother liked to call “strong smelling arms”, which basically meant my arms without the proper antiperspirant took on the scent…

Opinions and text are all mine.#Amope #Shoelove How many times have you gone into your closet and grabbed a pair of shoes that you haven’t worn in a long time? Only to realize why you haven’t worn said shoes in a long time? If it’s too many to count you’re not alone. Right now I have a closet full of gorgeous, wonderful shoes that I never wear because they are constantly throwing some type of shade/disrespect to my feet whenever I put them on. Yea there are tons…
