The FGF Weekend 2017 Brown Girls Building Brands Brunch Recap

After a tumultuous week and despite the fact that it was snowing,  I talked myself into attending the Brown Girls Building Building Brands Brunch being held during the Fit Girl Fresh Weekend here in Philly. I wanted to stay in bed. I wanted to continue working through my emotions, but I knew this would be good for me. It was a much needed first step towards getting back to who I was. I stumbled upon the Fit Girl Fresh Weekend after seeing an IG story from Trina who blogs over at Baby Shopaholic. The FitGirlFresh weekend is an event put together by…

Gift Giving Ideas for the Holidays with Babbleboxx

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com. Everyone has that one person in their lives that never wants anything for Christmas. In my family, that person would be me. I’m at a point where I have absolutely everything that I need, so there is nothing that I really want. Okay, I mean I would like a pair of Gucci loafers and a nice Louis Vuitton bag, but these are items I wouldn’t dare ask my family to purchase for me.  So, what do you get that person what either has everything or wants nothing?

I’ve found that the week leading up to Thanksgiving, including Black Friday are the perfect time to find those classic pieces that will really bring your wardrobe together.  There are so many…

Upgrade your Thanksgiving this year with this Crab and Shrimp Macaroni and Cheese.

This post is sponsored by Keller’s Creamery Butter. Typically when one thinks of Thanksgiving and the spread of food on the table greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, chicken, turkey….you name it! Family get togethers are great, especially around the holidays. It’s our family tradition to go around the room and say what we’re thankful for before we sit down to eat dinner. Typically this is when things get sentimental and we reflect on how we’ve overcome the obstacles that life has thrown us throughout the year. However, once that is over if you brought a dish, you better put on your thick…

Give the Gift of Sheet Mask!

I keep a pretty full stock of sheet mask. Whenever I see a gift set that contains multiples I grab it up. Why? It’s the best way to get the most bang for your buck and to always have a mask that fits your particular skin care need at the time. Yesterday I used a Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Charcoal Mask, and it was heaven. It’s also why you have to snap things up pretty quickly when the holiday sets go live at Sephora. The Dr. Jart+ Holiday Sheet Mask set is already sold out, but this doesn’t mean that…
