Reflections, On My 28th Birthday

Hair holds so much energy. From how our mood affects the way we shape and style it to how the way it comes out can then drastically alter that mood. Growing up, I felt my hair was all I had to showcase my beauty. It was often the trait that justified me being what other’s considered, “pretty for a dark skinned girl.” Over the years I fortunately grew less and less attached to my tresses and began experimenting with different…

Bye Bye Birchbox, OnyxBox is My New Wave!

Now, OnyxBox is nothing new — but because I’m cheap and already had a subscription to BirchBox I was too lazy to try it for myself. It wasn’t until recently when their General Manager reached out to see if I might be interesting in receiving one to try out that I decided to look into it further, and let me tell you I’m so damn happy Chaia contacted me. I didn’t even plan on writing a post on it, but…

Face Time with Natalie Moses!

I met Natalie Moses about 4 years ago through our mutual friends and who knew that in such a short span of time we’d become so close or even have so much in common! Though we have pretty different looks, that doesn’t stop us from constantly trading beauty tips and tricks with one another, among other things. I am so proud to be able to consider Natalie as one of my closest friends, she is literally beautiful inside and out.…

6 Under $100 Beauty Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

I love my momma! She’s literally my best friend, biggest cheerleader, confidant, therapist and so forth. I can literally go on. Therefore, if I have any excuse to showcase the love I have for her, I take it. And seeing as she’s just as beauty obsessed as I am, this Mother’s Day I plan on pampering her with something along those lines. I won’t say what it is here, since she reads my blog every day, ha! Instead, I’ve rounded…

Face Time with Brittany Miller

It’s no secret that I just got back from Cuba — if you follow me on Instagram I’m sure you’re tired of my posts from the trip. The whole reason I went in the first place was for my best friend Brittany Miller’s birthday and for the second installment of “Face Time” I had to highlight her. When we’re not talking about our favorite TV shows, the men in our lives, politics and pop culture–we’re completely consumed with discussions on…

So Excited to Announce that I’m Now a Glossier Rep!

As you all know I absolutely adore the brand Glossier! I’ve mentioned this previously but it’s definitely the “cool girl” beauty brand of the moment with its no frills and all chic approach. Last Friday as I was getting ready for a night out, I got an e-mail from one of the Glossier Community Managers, Samantha, letting me know that she loves the content I’ve been producing and that they are interested in me becoming a rep for the brand!…

Face Time with Chantz Brewer

I have so many wonderful and amazing women friends and when conceptualizing my blog I knew that at some point I wanted to highlight each of them, what they do and of course their beauty routine. Beauty as a whole and our particular daily and weekly rituals are a constant topic of discussion — whether while on gchat at work or on Saturday’s at brunch. For the first installment of “Face Time,” I sat down with my beautiful friend Chantz…

My 2017 Beauty Resolutions!

I know, a lot of people think making New Year’s Resolutions is bogus and that they rarely get fulfilled, but I’m a firm believer in at least jotting down goals. If they don’t come to fruition within the year, they will in the time they are supposed to — so long as you put them in front of yourself. A few months ago I was reading an old entry in my journal that had a list of goals I wanted…
