Thank you for allowing me to share the brands that believe in me. #kyconfessionals Some people get caught up in the material things of Valentine’s Day. The roses, the chocolates, or maybe even a fine piece of jewelry. My husband and I will be married five years come July and while I used to enjoy all the gifts while we were dating, now I’m more about the other perks that Valentine’s brings about like reconnecting mentally as well as intimately. My husband is on the… View Post

Just in case, you  were wondering highlighting and contouring’s still very much a thing. At first, I was intimidated by the entire process. The method was super vague and there weren’t that many products on the market yet I was captivated by the whole sculpting of the face idea. I immediately picked up the book “The Power of Contouring” by celebrity makeup artist Dynessa Myricks because I wanted to learn the proper way to do it. When you contour your basically giving shape to your face and enhancing your features. When choosing a contouring product it’s best to stick with… View Post

Thank you for allowing me to share with you the amazing brands that support me.#WomenWhoROC Last year when the new Apple updated to a new iOs, I noticed something different about the organization of my photos.

I think it goes without saying that I am a huge Make Up For Ever Fan. The Artist Eyeshadows while a tad bit pricey are to die for.

Thank you for allowing me to share content from brands that I love. #FiosPhilly While to Oscar may snub African American actors and not give them their fair due for some of the amazing roles they play that doesn’t mean that we still can’t enjoy the works of our favorite actors and actresses of color from the comfort of our own couches. I honestly prefer watching a movie at home to going to the theater. I will call a movie night at home in a heartbeat! I mean seriously movie theater food can… View Post

  One of the best things about having a Capsule Wardrobe is that it really forces you to think outside the box when it comes to putting together outfits. After my husband dug us out of the house we decided to get out and enjoy this beautiful snow day. Usually, I would throw on a sweatshirt and some jeans, but this year I’ve told myself that I want to make a concentrated effort to get out of that “grad student” funk when it comes to outfits. So, I decided to to wear my faux leather leggings that I picked up… View Post

So last week I shared with you swatches and thoughts on the Pur Cosmetics Cameo Contour Dual-ended Contour sticks and this week I’m bringing you even more Pur Cosmetics goodness in the form of their new Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation. Hydration is one of the top beauty trends for Spring 2016, think soft dewy skin that is usually a must on the fashion runways.   The thing that makes this foundation different from other water based foundations on the market is the fact that delivers Swiss Alps-sourced glacier water (fancy huh?) deep into the skin for optimal hydration. The Hydrafluid Water… View Post
