I chose to utilize a capsule wardrobe this year because I needed to add as much simplicity to my life this year as possible. While I’ve loved every bit of it, I really didn’t think through how much losing weight would affect my capsule wardrobes… View Post

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

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

This month I had the opportunity to attend my first VIB Rouge exclusive event. I’d never gone before because well #broke and I usually had to work. This time, though, I was armed with gift cards and so ready to play in makeup. 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

Weight loss and Preparing for Something Greater.

This is not a sponsored post but only my genuine journey to win back control of my life. -Photo Credits: April Pershing Weight loss. It’s something I’ve talked about several times on this platform. Each year I try, make a little progress and then regress back to where I was. This time, I knew it was going to be different. It had to be different. I think the turning point for me was during the holidays when I realized that I couldn’t keep a watch on because it was just too tight. I honestly think I had a small anxiety… View Post

Just the Type of Boldness I was Looking For.

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ Boldness is not often a quality a woman would state as a requirement when listing her top must haves in a future mate. For me, however, I knew I needed a man that was strong enough to handle my intense personality.  One that could be the yin to my yang, as well as one bold enough to stand up to me when I started getting a little carried away. I wasn’t looking for boldness in a sense that they’d go out and fight a bull or ran 10K’s… View Post
