L’oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

In full disclosure, it’s been a while since I’ve tried a drug store foundation. Actually, it’s been over a year since I stepped foot into a convenience store to pick up makeup period! It’s not because I don’t like drugstore makeup but has a lot to do with me cutting back on how much I spent on makeup though somehow I still managed to make VIB Rouge. So when I received a special delivery from Loreal last month I was super surprised to find it contained  three out of twelve of the shades of their True Match Lumi Cushion foundation.… View Post

How Changing my Regimen Saved my Hair.

Hair regimens are important. Especially if you have natural hair. Once of the biggest pitfalls of having natural hair is overcoming that inner product junkie. You know the one that wants to try every single product that comes out on the market? Being that I’ve been natural for many years I thought I finally figured out what my hair liked there were certain products from brands that I could use and certain products I had to stay away from. After doing another impromptu big chop in January I realized that my hair was riddled with grays. I mean I’ve always… View Post

Starting My Spring Capsule Wardrobe

Spring is less than 20 days away and since having a Winter Capsule Wardrobe was probably one of the best things I ever did fashion wise I decided to keep it going into Spring. Since our area is a bit colder during the Spring (that is if we don’t skip the season completely like we did last year), I’m counting on a good bit of my stuff transitioning over. I have a few lightweight long sleeved shirts that I didn’t show in my winter capsule that I can transition over as well as a couple of light weight cardigans. For… View Post

Your Life Doesn’t Have to Stop Because of LBL.

The one thing you can count on as a new mom is a lot of first and a lot of unsolicited advice. Though I’m not a mom yet I have several friends who have had kids and after having a sit down with them to discuss what to expect after pregnancy, I think I heard enough stories to feel like I’d gone through the whole birthing process myself. Amongst all the stories and advice one thing that they explained to me that was often left out is the embarrassing things that can happen to your body once you’ve had a… View Post

Move to Your Own (Custom) Beat.

This is a sponsored post by Luden’s. All opinions are my own. As a new business owner, one thing I’ve learned is that while some old practices of advertising and marketing still work to stand out you have to be able to march to the beat of your own drum and create a platform for promoting your business that is unique to your and your audience. While some people can use a single element of Social Media I’ve found that getting out there and being passionate, transparent and genuine are what work best for me. Sometimes you just have to… View Post
