Blue, Bold, and Winged With Sally Beauty!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sally Beauty for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. This fall I’m switching out my black eyeliner for a bit more color. You may have heard me talk about giving black a break and switching it out for my bold fun hues on my Snap Chat and Instagram stories. I like a good eye pencil but nothing can hold a match to my love for liquid eyeliners. Now that I’ve gotten the hang of using them I don’t want to use anything else. They’re perfect for making my signature…

Don’t Be Afraid to Standout!

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ #Bringoutthebold Personal style is so important especially if you’re a blogger or an entrepreneur. You want your brand to stand out and be immediately identifiable among everyone else’s. This is why I use consistent colors and fonts on both this Blog BeingMelody as well as Broke on Purpose.  While my blogging color scheme might be the same my personal style is not monotonous at all. I’m pretty limited with my wardrobe due to my workplace rules and regulations I try to play it up and…

Boscia Sake Brightening Mask and Cleansing Water Review

Boscia was probably one of the first skincare brands I really got into when I first started living shopping at Sephora. I was dealing with some major breakouts and I was looking for a brand that had more natural ingredients and wasn’t going to break my bank. The first product I tried, the Clear Complexion Cleanser, gave me amazing results so I stuck with the brand and started to use their Black Charcoal line. I’ve shared several of my favorites in my “What’s in my Skincare Stash” post. I know how important skincare is, especially at night, but sometimes the…

How I Maintain My Curly Weave Plus A Quick Indique Organic Curl Review

In my attempt to grow out my tapered cut (again) I decided to have some hair installed. I’ve had this Indique Organic Curl for a while but just never used it so since I had an event coming up I decided that this would be the perfect time to rock it. I haven’t seen too many reviews on the Indique Organic Curl hair on the interwebs so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it while also telling you which products have been life savers for maintaining this free spirit hair. I’m currently wearing two bundles of 10-inch and 14-inch hair,…

MAC X Taraji Collection Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

MAC has done several celebrity collections, but nothing and I mean not one thing piqued my interest more than seeing that there was going to be an upcoming MAC X Taraji P. Henson collection!!! If watching her flawlessly play Cookie on Empire wasn’t enough now I get to rock Taraji inspired makeup on my face?? This is where I can’t even…  I love Taraji.
