Hi Loves! My fondness for lipsticks, liquid lipsticks to be exact, has grown and is still growing immensely. In my future I see myself becoming the liquid lipstick/ lipstain connoisseur if there is such a title Or I will just simply dub myself the honorary liquid lipstick guru. I kid, but all jokes aside though, I’m a lipstick fanatic. I saw this set at Sephora, thought long and hard on it for about a week before purchasing and then whaddaya know I caved and bought it, which brings us here. And just to justify my guilty pleasure that makes it okay…

Hi Loves! Here’s a funny story about this jacket. I first came across it in black online at Forever21 as the deal of the day, but I scrolled passed it. Fast Forward two weeks later, a coworker of mine wore this jacket to work with me as an inspiration. She said, “I thought about you when I got the jacket and I got a hat to go with it.” When I saw the jacket I knew I had to get it. I dragged my friend Jessica (thee_shopaholic) with me to three different f21 in search of this jacket, love her…

Hello Sunshine! Another day another shoot. Sharing with you all these photos I took last week with my photographer Tyler. It was such a beautiful day, I wanted to seize the day. I’ve worn this hat on so many occasions it’s so timeless to me, it fits with a lot of my outfits. On top of that, even though I’m bald, when my hair starts to grow out it makes the perfect accessory.

Hello Beautiful! The in thing right now are matte liquid lipsticks, I mean they’ve been” in”, but they’ve seen a rise in popularity in the last 2 years. Many brands since then came out with more on trend and unconventional colors. I want to talk about these Colourpop Cosmetic ultra matte lippies! I was way too excited to share these swatches with you and they’re finally here. How cute is the note that left for me? Typically, when shopping for lipsticks I would stay in the deep plum family or go really bright, there was no in between for me,…

Hi Loves! I hope you all are having a beautiful Friday Afternoon. For some odd reason today doesn’t feel like a Friday to me, It feels more like a Saturday. I woke up this morning with joy knowing that I would get to see and play with my Nephew, then that emotion quickly went away when I found out he was in school, talk about disappointment. Today is a beautiful day, trying to enjoy the last bit of this gorgeous weather before it gets unbearable. I am looking forward to this weekend! some of you may or may not know, I’m an…

  Hi loves! I am a big makeup wearer some days I go full out drag makeup and some days I’m a minimalist. After a long day of wearing makeup all I want to do is run home and take it off. The amount of effort I spend at the start of my day executing the perfect, “wow look at your brows” and “Omg your skin is glowing” look, is the same amount of effort I put Into removing my makeup at the end of the day; to ensure the same wow factors for the next day makeup application. When…

Hi loves! Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a beautiful weekend. Sunday is by far my favorite day of the week, it’s a chill out day for me to refresh my mind from the week prior and to prepare for the new week ahead with a new mindset. My mantra is new day, new beginnings, new blessings. Saturday I went to the Legendary Damon, Ty Hunter & Claire Sulmers No Basics Brunch at the Corner Social in Harlem. As always it was an epic day spent with unlimited mimosa’s, friends and A LOT of Laughter; lets just say…

Hi Loves! It’s been a while, I do miss you. Please bare with me while I gather my life and get my priorities in order. The more I’m getting into blogging the more disciplined I realize I need to be. Having a full-time job and trying to network is very challenging (I’m not making excuses) but this ish is hardwork mixed with some serious dedication! After having a heartfelt conversation with one of my dear friends, you guys may know her, Marsha of Marshbarscloset.com, dropped a little gem that had me thinking a lot. She said, “it’s all about how…
