Brown Beauty Crush: Janelle Monae

Brown Beauty Crush_Janelle Monae

Whenever I see this gorgeous lady I just…* insert a ridiculous amount of heart eyed emoji’s* From her hair, to her confidence, to that Fabulous red lipstick (Ruby Woo maybe?). I just love her style and how unapologetic she is about simply being her.

Favorite Things: Natural Hair Edition

Favorite Things Natural Hair Edition Main

TGIT! I feel like I haven’t talked about my hair here in foreverrr. Truth is, I admire you natural hair bloggers. I put so much time and energy in just getting the fro together… you want me to now blog about how I did it?? It’s not easy. So to my favorite natural hair bloggers, I appreciate you! But because I did start this journey on the blog it’s only right to give you all an update but rather than the normal regimen of what I use, and how I use it (which I will do before the month is over promise!), I thought I’d do a favorite things because I’ve given up on monthly favorites. Oh and there may or may not be a giveaway at the end ;).

Beauty Faves: Drugstore Lipsticks for Fall + Winter

Fall lipstick cover 2

I might be biased seeing as though Fall is my favorite season, but there really is nothing better than dark sultry makeup. I take full advantage of the cold months to wear as much dark lipstick as I possibly can. So it’s only right I make a post about it right? That and it gives me an excuse take all the selfies I want. I’m working after all ;). Best part of all? You can get all of these vamp babies for under $8. Yasss hunny! Continue Reading

Weekend Beauty: Viva Glam Rihanna 2

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Happy Sunday beauties! It’s late but I’m finally débuting my newest makeup obsession. Last week I posted on Instagram about how the Mr. went creeping on my Nordstrom wish list and got me Rihanna’s Viva Glam 2 lipstick and lipglass. When I got the package at work…. faints. Yes it was that real.  This lipstick is such a unique color I wasn’t sure how it’d look but just knew I wanted it. I mean the packaging alone is worth it!

Fall Beauty Wish List


Queens! I’ve seriously seriously missed you. Can you believe the insanity that is me not posting since August 1st?! I can’t. I could go into the long drawn out craziness that caused such a long absence but the short version is I got sick. Like really sick. Nothing too crazy but definitely a rough couple of weeks while I tried to get better. Which as a mother, when you’re sick it’s just like another day to them so my recovery was anything but quick and sweet. I’m so glad to finally be feeling like myself again and to be back here! Right in time for the changing seasons, trends, and my favorite time of the year!

Happy Friday. Happy August. Happy Day! Can you believe it’s August though seriously? Where is the time going?! Le sigh. So anyway, guess what?

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when I first found out about this. A drugstore neutral palette?! Here for it. Yes ma’am.

Reflections: Beaches + Birthdays

Can’t believe it’s been a year already. It seems like only last week I was posting about turning 26 and yet here I am at 27. This year has seriously flown by. When you’re caught up in the day to day it’s easy to lose sight of the progress, the journey. But when I really think about it…I’ve accomplished so much during my 26th year of life. It feels good and a little surreal that I’m really in my late twenties. For real this time, like I can’t even pretend anymore.

Summer Beauty: Skincare Regimen

When it comes to this beauty thing, it’s easy to blog endlessly about the newest lipstick or favorite bronzer or which foundation I’m loving at the moment (because it’s forever changing). But I know for me, one thing that I tend to overlook here on the blog is the importance of caring for your skin. I’ll be honest though,  and I’m no professional, but I’ve watched my fair share of YouTube videos where the skin care routine is literally 50 million steps and I’m just O_O yea, no. Ain’t nobody got time for that. But some type of skincare regimen is important. Especially in the summer when you’re out in the sun, beach, oily, sweaty and…you get the picture.

Beyond Beauty: Self Love…

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you may have come across my Love Yourself Completely post. I’ve posted it twice here and both times I was met with such love and encouragement from Queens (here and on my social media accounts) about the message. In that post I talk about loving yourself completely and embracing everything about you. Total self acceptance. “Flaws” and all. I also talked about the things I experienced in my past that I learned to embrace and accept about myself. That transparency with you all was major for me. I’ve never really spoke out on something so personal. Writing about beauty is easy. It comes naturally to me and it’s something I’m passionate about. But what’s not so easy is being transparent and I was really happy to see such positive feedback.

Brown Girl Beauty Pick: Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blush

Black Radiance Blush Self

One of the things I hear a lot from brown girls when it comes to makeup is, they don’t know how to use blush. From comments here to people stopping in me in the makeup isle to ask the same thing: Which blush should they wear? Another part of the brown girl struggle I suppose. And for good reason though. Blush is tricky! I struggle with it myself still sometimes and I have a product problem so you know it must be real.

Beauty Things & Update



Hey loves! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve posted! Life has been throwing me through a loop so please don’t charge it to my heart. My Macbook needs a new battery which sucks so bad. On top of that I’ve been working on a few freelance projects that have me up insane hours of the night. Most days have been lip gloss, brows, and go so you know it’s real!
