While on a very much needed spring vacation in Texas last week, out of all the places I could have visited, Wally World was first on the list. After making my luggage and carry-ons TSA friendly, I wanted to scour the Walmart to see what beauty goodies I could find that I couldn’t in my home state of North Carolina.
Low and behold, my eyes darted toward the sleek IMAN Cosmetics store banner. After reading all of the uproar about this affordable, premier makeup line, I had to succumb to my beauty cravings and purchased the $16 foundation. I truly did not need to add to my growing makeup addiction, but hey, your girl was on vacation and wanted to splurge just a little bit.
It happens to the best of us. You got a little product happy, and now you don’t even want to venture outside. People keep mistaking you for the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz, and you’re getting pretty sick and tired of it. Here are 12 ways to tell you use way too much hair product.
In case you missed it, I was a guest on HuffPo Live yesterday talking about my encounters with Karyn Washington and the effects that depression and suicide has on the Black community, meanly Black women.
So about this $50 tee shirt. I can’t even believe this happened. I am a firm believer that cotton should be cheap. My spending limit for cotton tee shirts normally caps off at $30. And that’s on the higher end of the scale.
I woke up this morning and reached for my phone. My morning ritual is a deep scrolling of Facebook. After a few posts I noticed a familiar name, Karyn Washington. But the post wasn’t from her.
The post declared that Karyn Washington, founder of For Brown Girlsand the popular campaign #DarkGirlsRedLip, had committed suicide. I paused and immediately hopped up out of bed. This could not be true. Searching for the answers, or hopefully the lies, I clicked around Facebook. I went to Karyn’s Facebook profile and instantly broke out into an uncontrollable bubble-snot cry.
So back in February 2014, I was a guest on the Dr. Oz show. When I got the email I was super excited and immediately said yes without even really knowing what the segment was about. I mean duh, I was going to be on TV (again). I could have been talking about how to trim your nose hairs for all I cared.
