10 Skin Care Tips I Learned While Vacationing In The Eastern Caribbean

GIG Princess Cruises Fresh Face 1

I know I know, the last thing you wanna be thinking about while you’re on vacation is skin care. But I promise you, it’s something that you need to take into consideration before you leave. Before blogging I never took my skin care seriously, and I really paid for my neglect with each vacation. I had sudden breakouts, excess dryness and wrinkles in places that I care not to share!

I had the opportunity to cruise the Eastern Caribbean (thanks Princess Cruises) where the temperatures are much warmer and filled with humidity. While it was my first time to St. Thomas and St. Maarten, I have traveled to St. Croix in the U.S Virgin Islands in the past and I remember the air not being on my side.

Your travel skin care routine needs to be a little different than your home skin care. Your skin will face a number of challenges while you’re traveling so you’ll have to compensate for a few things. Keeping all that in mind, take good notes because below are some gems you’ll need for your next excursion. View Full Post

My Commitment To My Health + I’m Hosting A Periscope Party During NYFW #YouGoGirl

American Heart Association You Go Girl IMG_1842

Back in November I traveled to Chicago to help American Heart Association kick off their latest campaign, #YouGoGirl. I met up with five other influencers and we pledged to make our heart health a priority. We even did a video (watch it here).

My real friends know that I often times fail at this. There’s a really thin line between hiding what you really feel and presenting your ideas, opinions and thoughts in a way that makes them inoffensive.

This post is really a reminder for me, but I figured it might help one of you beauties too. Here’s 5 ways you can be more discreet in sharing your feelings. View Full Post

7 Times Erykah Badu Kept It 100 & Made Us Laugh

ERYKAH BADU

Erykah Badu kicked the Neo-Soul music doors wide open snatching the hinges off in 1996 and got things popping like fish grease. Since that time her voice as an artist has grown along with the respect she’s gained as a woman. Erykah gave birth to a sound that is so unique to her, yet so conscious and so relevant. She’s a woman who is not ashamed of her truth, nor is she afraid to share it.

Aside from the fact that Erykah Badu has a thing for musicians and they clearly have a thing for her, we’ve had the pleasure of learning many things about the Queen of Neo-Soul.
