She is French: Granola Made by Women, for Women on the Go

I’m not a morning person, and I don’t drink coffee –I know, recipe for disaster. Somehow, however, over my adult years I’ve been able to maintain energy throughout the day. Many times it’s taken heavy prayer, but for the most part I owe it to the fact that I try my best never to skip breakfast.

The Grand Opening: Welcome to AishaBeau.com

I actually bought the domain for this site back in July of 2015. While on my way to a nail appointment, a woman approached me and asked about the makeup I was wearing, to which I gave her the lowdown on all of my favorite products and brands. We began discussing skincare routines and I was so excited that I almost missed my train stop. She said she was surprised that I didn’t work in the beauty and cosmetics industry since I seemed so passionate…
