Storytime: So one night I was up on my phone Facebook surfing until the sandman attacked my eyelids. It must have been around midnight or maybe later. My good good girlfriend, Danielle Young (if you follow me on social than you already know her) posted that she had just found one of those flight deals and bought had bought herself a roundtrip ticket to Belize.

Guess how much said ticket was? View Post


Remember when we were kids and Halloween costumes were so easy (AND they always fit). Well! Now I’m almost 40 (AYE #ScorpioSeason is upon us) and my patience and waist size don’t match the inner kid that lives inside of me. She wants to participate so badly but life is just happening at record speed and Halloween costume shopping is not on the agenda this year (or any year really). Since Halloween is like…tomorrow, IT Cosmetics is helping us create the perfect Halloween costume that only requires one thing–MAKEUP! View Post

halloween makeup tutorial


Each Halloween I say I am going to record halloween makeup tutorials. Well Halloween is creeping on our tails and I have yet to record a single video. I give up. I’m busy AF (I mean I did write a book did you get it yet) and more importantly I am lazy. But I have two pieces of good news. I bought a bunch of lights and some backdrops sooooooooooo I will doing a video real soon. Just not in time for Halloween. I am realistic.

The second piece of good news is this post. To compensate for my lazyness I’ve rounded up a few of my fave (more diligent) YouTubers to highlight their easy halloween makeup tutorials. Check it out!

OMG! How did we get here? It seems like just yesterday I was chasing off pigeons at the beach and slapping chub rub repellant on my thighs because the heat and humidity would not let me be great. Fall came through the door like a midnight Beyonce album and now we are all scrambling to get our sweaters out of storage. Lucky for us, my blogger friends have already started posting all the fall plus size trends!
