MILK ON YOUR FACE! Skinue Skincare Review + Freebie

April 26, 2014
There is nothing more that I love than all things style and beauty right now aside from the wonderful things happening in my life. You all may know by now that I LOVE to care for my skin and I try out a lot of products ...just in case I grow tired of something routine. As a blogger, I come across some amazing people and products. I was recently contacted by the good folks over at Skinue.

I'm sure you may have seen skincare products with ingredients like argan oil and goat milk but what about camel's milk? If only I could go back in time and gain some beauty secrets from the Queen of the Nile, the power of camel's milk just may be apart of those secrets. Though I feel lucky not to have such significant problem skin, I still get the occasional breakout every now and again.

Anywho, I'm already enjoying the Spring outdoors, (meaning watching from indoors for me). Check out my Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear collection along with swatches.

Sally Hansen nail polishes are ALWAYS my go-to favorites in every passing season.

A Product Love Story| Acid and the Beast

December 18, 2013
Hello my favorite people of the web. Yes, I know I've been missing in action but all for a great reason. If you noticed, the blog underwent a mini-update so new logo, continuous color, and a bit of organization. I hope you like it. It's still not perfected to my liking though. I'm also making several changes and plans with my freelance design business.

Any who, I wanted to share a special skincare product with you that I have been using and loving for over a month now. Its the natural, anti-aging Ageless Derma Glycolic Facial Cleanser. This stuff has been a life saver for me. Some of you may even be wondering why I even need a cleanser made for anti-aging skin. In my opinion, why not start caring for youthful skin now for the mature future? You may recall my review on this company's satin lip gloss, which is also a nice product. 

Mirror Check| How To Stop Negative Thoughts About Your Body [GUEST POST]

November 20, 2013
how to stop negative thoughts about your body

We've all been there before. You know, having negative thoughts about our body. Even I know the feeling of wanting to look a certain way physically. The things we do to please the eyes of "others" because society tells us what is beautiful and what is not. There just comes a time where you have to fully accept you as you are. We all aren't meant to be that thick and bootylicious model or that slim and super fit lady next door. 

Sometimes.... you just have to come to terms with loving who you were intended to be. If you're not happy with something, FIX IT because YOU want to make the change. Don't ever alter yourself for the sake of others or to conform to the non-standards given off by society. 

My guest contributor today, Melanie, sheds light on her own personal experience with body image. She also shares how she overcame those insecurities.

Hello beauties!!! 

To all of you lip makeup lovers, this is just for you. I was contacted by a representative of a company known as Ageless Derma to review a product of theirs recently. I received the Ageless Derma Satin Lip Gloss in Smokey Violet in the mail just a few weeks ago so this post is well overdue. It's life, you know? I had never heard of the company so for the sake of this post and my curiosity, I wanted to give them a good ol' looking up.

BLESSHOE DARLING| Fashionable Shoe Haul For Fall & Winter

August 14, 2013

Oh my, it has been quite a while since my last online shopping haul. You're in for a treat with this one. I have four pairs of beauties to share in this fashionable shoe haul. To celebrate my accomplishments this past year, I decided to reward myself with some retail therapy in the shoe department. It's literally been over a year since I last purchased a pair of heels. A world record in my book. 

I hope you love pictures because I do. I wanted to give good detail of my purchases so if you decide you want to add these babies to your shoe closet, then shoot for it and know exactly what you're getting. I am SO ready for the Fall and Winter seasons. Here in Georgia, it seems as if we won't feel the real cold weather until January 2014... BOO! 

Welp. Let's get into it! 

Vibrant Colors | 9 Bold Lip Colors for Women of Color + VIDEO

July 27, 2013
Hey again everyone! It's been a long time coming but this post is for all my bold lipstick-wearing ladies. I often get tons of compliments and questions regarding the lip colors that I tend to rock quite often. I'm a big lipstick lover. I will say that all the colors I share below may not be for everyone. If you're someone that loves to stand out and express a lot more than just a pretty face, these 9 bold lip colors for women of color will be just for you! 

There use to be some taboo stigma to wearing super bright and bold colors on your lips. Most often black women would simply stick to neutrals and reds. Even red would send some ladies running for the mountains. Fashion and beauty is changing so rapidly that it's had to keep up sometimes. A woman can truly shine and speak without a word just by the color on her lips. Did you know colors have psychological meanings? Yep. It's not just serving design and interior decorating purposes. Lipsticks for women of color can range from bold hues of blue to deep shades of red. Talk about instant fun!

Compulsive Polish Lover| Broadway Nails imPRESS Press On Manicure Review

June 9, 2013

broadway nails imPRESS press on manicure

Whew! It's been a while since I shared some nail love on here. So I was given the opportunity to test out and review a set of Broadway Nails Impress Press On Manicure product. Let me first give a disclaimer before digging into my review. I do not have children and throughout my day I'm mostly at my laptop, typing up a storm. The only time water or lotion hits my hands is when I shower and wash my hands. Basically, my day is wear/tear-free from hard labor. 

Now, onto the information you're wanting to know about the Broadway Nails Impress Press On ManicureI haven't worn press on nails in FOREVER. I can remember trying them when I was a kid for the fun of it. Since I didn't know any better then, I thought they were cool up until I got deep into my love for nails and color. Thus, acrylic and Youtube came into my life.

Fysiko EyeLash Growth Serum

May 11, 2013
Hey you beauty lovers! If you don't know already, I absolutely love all things
fysiko eyelash growth serum
pertaining to healthy hair. This includes my lashes as well (using Fysiko EyeLash Growth Serum), more on that in a minute. I know of many ladies who would love to have those long, full lashes apart of their natural beauty. Of course, with many of us, we opt for the fullness and illusion with use of fake lashes. They have pros and cons. More cons if you don't apply or remove them correctly. 

You may be familiar with products called Latisse and Revitalash serum that help treat hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes).
