Top 5 Sites to Buy Affordable Beauty Products

From those expensive eyeshadow pallets to the latest trends in hair care, a simple trip to the store is enough to break a beauty addict’s budget. I just dropped $75 at Ricky’s. Dude I bought FOUR things. LAWRD.

These sites let makeup lovers (points at you and me) stock up and try out more of their favorites for way less. Check out five sites where you can buy discount makeup online! View Full Post

Hey beauties and beaus, Maui here.

I know you’ve noticed that I stepped out of the box and addressed the beaus too, beauties, well it is with good reason. This post is to assure that we get this sh!t right once and for all. With the holiday season being in full swing and everyone looking for the perfect gifts for their loved ones; I feel obligated to drop a few jewels (and bombs). In an effort to make sure that you are enlightened about the dos and don’ts of gift giving when it comes to fat girls.

Yes, you read correctly; there are dos and don’ts in regards to buying gifts for fat girls. I think that many times people take the whatever attitude when shopping for us, and that works my nerves. If I can apply what I know about you and buy a gift that you will enjoy I expect the same in return. Oh, and before anyone adds their two-cent and says, “it’s the thought that counts”, I want to let you know that is the point I am trying to make. With some of the gifts you buy us, it is obvious that there was little to no thought involved.

Please don’t get it twisted, this is not about the monetary value of the gift, it is literally about the thought. If you know your fat girl like you should know your fat girl, it shouldn’t be that hard to give her a great gift that she can appreciate as opposed to one that will get trashed or re-gifted. However, since it is obvious that some of you are clueless, I’m going to put you on to some game.

Check this, below are four gifts I almost guaran-damn-tee (in my Erykah Badu voice) fat girls don’t want: View Full Post

dsw gift guide-1

At some point this week, I looked on my blog and realized we wrote a lot of holiday content. From great holiday beauty finds, to gifts to grab your boyfriend, to gifts that I promise won’t hurt your wallet–we’ve covered everything!

But during my holiday research I realized there was one list, one person, that we were forgetting! ME.

I’ve worked hard and stayed up to the wee hours in the morning writing my soul out of my heart, I deserve a gift. I deserve a bunch a gifts. Actually, I deserve at least seven. Besides I haven’t been shopping since last week (LOL). Plus, I’ve been on a mission to upgrade my closet with staple pieces like LBDs, blazers, and an endless supply of white shirts. Now that my staples are almost checked off (I think I need a few more pairs of jeans), I realized that I didn’t have not one pair of fly shoes to compliment all of my new threads. I mean, what’s an outfit without a great pair of shoes.
