Skin Care Basics : Tips for Your Most Beautiful Skin

July 28, 2017

Skin care often eludes so many of us.  It’s like we don’t know what to do with it, or how to care for it.  It’s different than our body-skin and should be cared for differently, but sometimes we just don’t get it right and it ends up betraying us.  So what’s a girl to do with her skin care?

Seven Lessons I Learned About My Natural Hair Journey from Spider-Man Homecoming | *NO SPOILERS*

July 17, 2017

So we went to see Spider-Man Homecoming.  I had my doubts – mostly because the lack of awesomeness of the last attempts at Spider-Man movies had me wishing I never knew there was a Spider-Man in the Marvel universe.  Yeah.  That bad.  But I walked away with good feels, and natural hair lessons.  Why of course they’re related.  Because what kind of natural hair blogger would I be if I couldn’t tie natural hair to anything?  Not worth my salt, I tell you that!  So, without further adieu, my Spidey review.  I just snorted at my own cheesy rhyme.  But seriously, here are my take-aways…

My Makeup Essentials

July 15, 2017

What goes along with a bomb-arse natural hair style?  A great hair day?  Well, a “beat face”, as the kids say.  But really, why do they say that?  If you think about it, a beat face doesn’t really sound that attractive.  But I digress; my point is that when your hair looks great, you want your makeup to look great as well.  For me, I don’t always want to take the time required to put on makeup, but most of the time I like the way it looks when I do.  And I’ve been slowly building my collection of makeup essentials to share with you. #poetmuch #justcallmeShakespeare

Finding Your Personal Style | Part One, Style Series

July 10, 2017

Everyone has a personal style.  Some people say, ‘oh, I don’t really have a style – I like a little bit of everything’, but that just isn’t true.  Think about it – if we like “a little bit of everything” we would love the taste of all foods, right?  Because if you even slide beets or cooked peas over here I will throw them back at you food fight style.  Try me if you don’t believe me.  I dare you.  Your funeral.

My point is that sometimes we don’t know what our style is because we often buy based on trends and what’s in style for the season, and because we often fill our closets with a bunch of crappy clothes that don’t fit us well and that we don’t like.  I did this for years, and it made shopping a terrible experience, and even dressing was no fun.

What to Wear to a Blogging Conference | What I Wore to BlogHer ’17

July 4, 2017

Guys it is hot outside.  And when I say hot, I mean H-E-L-L-F-I-R-E-A-N-D-D-A-M-N-A-T-I-O-N hawt.  Oh, that isn’t how you spell hot?  Well in the Devil’s kitchen’s inner chambers that is how we spell it.  I should get to the point of this post, which is Conference Fashion; so I went out into hell’s kitchen to get a few shots of my Conference outfits for this post.  Now I knew it was hot, but I had no idea until I came in after one picture drenched from the humidity boiling in the air.  But I did it.  And the main takeaway from this intro is that it. is. hot.  M’kay.
