Zoya Focus Nail Polish collection

Zoya Focus Nail Polish Collection

Fall is right around the corner and yours truly couldn’t be more excited. I always look forward to Summer until well, it gets here. Summer in Florida is like…not pleasant. Not even a little bit. I welcome the cooler breezes and lower AC bills. I welcome the changing of leaves and prepping for the holidays. Fall nail polish collections? LOVE THEM! They’re pretty typical for the most part but I love the richer shades. Zoya Focus is part I of Zoya’s Fall collection. Stay tuned for Flair!

Zoya Hannah

Hannah is a red that while lovely, I feel has been done before. That doesn’t mean I love it any less. It’s a classic red and it’s one of those reds that I couldn’t wear as a child. Take that, mama!

The Beauty Behind Ford’s Warriors in Pink

Warriors in Pink

Not gonna lie here, y’all – I am SO behind on cranking this post out and I have no one to blame but myself. The lovely people at Ford were kind enough to provide me with pretty pieces to highlight a very important initiative called Warriors in Pink.

Launched to provide support and conversation surrounding breast cancer, Warriors in Pink has recently celebrated 21 years and they’ve teamed up with Meal Train and Lyft to launch The Good Day Project. This online platform serves so many purposes but their main one is to help organize family and friends to bring meals to loved ones fighting breast cancer. Meal deliveries is one thing but they are going above and beyond by also helping set up errand services and childcare. Because, let’s face it – those battling cancer have so many things to worry about and to remove something as detrimental as food prep for the week can make all the difference in the world.

5 of the Best Beauty Items Under $10

Best Beauty Items under 10

I’m doing another post with my Makeup Wars sisters and this week we’re talking about some our favorite beauty items that just happen to be under $10 a piece. This is easy for me since I tend to lean more to lower-end cosmetics versus the expensive stuff. I can make more money in life and still have a hard time justifying a $40 mascara. Seriously, y’all. Luckily the babies that I’m mentioning in this posts are not only affordable but easy to find, too. Woohoo!

Best Eye Shadow Palette: Sleek Makeup – $9.60

I first discovered Sleek Makeup sometime last year and I’ve been hooked on them ever since. They recently sent me a box of goodies and I got to sneak a peek at a new palette. I haven’t tried them all but I do own thier  i-Divine AU Natural Palette and giiiiirl, lemme tell you. It is the real deal. I’m amazed at how cheap they are because the quality of the shadows are pretty stellar. Long lasting, extra pigmented and full of various textures, I have yet to come across a palette from them that I didn’t love.

Best Makeup Brushes: Real Techniques – $9.92

I’ve been on the Real Techniques bandwagon for quite some time and I’m still a rollin’. They can do no wrong in my eyes. They are the reason why I don’t even look at higher end makeup brushes. Sold online and at ULTA, finding a makeup brush that is efficient and lasts through tons of applications and washes couln’t be easier. I have a ton of their brushes but really it’s this Core Collection set that I can’t get enough of. I recommend it time and time again to  anyone who wants really good makeup brushes that are also affordable.

My Whiter Teeth Mission with Colgate Optic White + Giveaway

Colgate Optic White So we all know how I feel about dental care. I’ve talked about it a thousand times. So much so that I should probably start a dental care blog. Okay, I’m kidding but you get my drift. I’m pretty serious about dental health and keeping those teeth of mine white so I’m raising my little babe to be the same way. Here’s to hoping that she won’t ever get a cavity until she’s at least in her 20’s. A mama can dream, right? While you know the hippie girl in me is all about trying to find natural alternatives to just about everythiiiiiing, one conventional product that I don’t mind using is toothpaste. I’ve been rockin’ with Colgate for many years and when I got the opportunity to test drive their Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen, I was all on board. And a little nervous, too. I suffer from sensitivity issues when I’ve used whitening products, namely the strips. I felt a little bit better knowing that the product didn’t have to sit on my teeth for minutes or hours at a time. Colgate Optic White Built-In Whitening Pen In fact using it is as simple as, well…brushing your teeth.  [Read more…]

Life is Better – Thanks to Cotton Candy Grapes

Cotton Candy Grapes

Yes, this blog post is about grapes. I realize you’re probably somewhere laughing at me and I’m totally okay with that. If you told me that at 30 years old, I’d be an accomplished blogger who writes about mascaras and grapes, I too, would have laughed. But seriously, you’ve gotta open up your horizons a little bit and experience the wonderment that are cotton candy grapes.

Grapery Cotton Candy Grapes

They’re exactly what they sound like. Grapes that taste like cotton candy. I first heard about them on Buzzfeed and while intrigued, I figured they were just some funky fruits that those crazy kids in Cali were playing around with. I thought they were a California-exclusive thing and I figured I’d never seen them in my hood. 

Until I saw them in my hood.

Girlfriend Time and Summer Cocktails with Alizé Passion

Allow me to preface this sponsored post by letting you know that yours truly did not indulge in the alcoholic beverages that you will see in this post. Yes, I know. It’s sad. I’ve put together these gorgeous drinks just to miss out on the opportunity to guzzle them. Don’t feel too badly for me because you better believe after giving birth, I’ll be toasting with a drank of…something. 😎

I’m not a big drinker (remind me to tell you about that time in college…) but I have a few girlfriends who love getting cocktails and fancy drinks. In honor of life…I decided to host a little get together with two of my gal pals with Alizé Passion drinks being the star of the show. This was no easy undertaking, y’all because I’ve never put together a drink in my life. It could not have been easier and based off of everyone’s expressions, I’m guessing I did it right. Woohoo!
