GRWM: Fancy Date Night Look [VIDEO]

It’s been a minute since I’ve recorded a makeup tutorial for YouTube. But I have literally adopted this fancy date night makeup look as my go-to look. It’s so crazy simple.

My New Hair Care Regime Since I’ve Cut & Relaxed My Hair

Why I Cut My Hair & Got A Relaxer

I entered 2017 with a host of changes sitting on my lap. I wrote my first book and became an author (buy it here). Then Leèroy asked me to marry him and we got engaged (no, that’s not his real name).

The Top 9 Beauty Products I’m Crushing On This Winter

Even though it hasn’t gotten super cold this winter, the cold air is still wreaking havoc on my skin and my hair, causing both to dry out faster than usual.

“You look good for your age” + other ageist statements that make my soul itch!

Can I rant for a second (a two)? When I first started my blog I was 34 years old and very vocal about my age. Nothing has changed.

Buy or Nah: Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint

Last month I shared my obsession with the Fenty Beauty foundation and my honest thoughts on her Galaxy Palette. In true RiRi fashion, she couldn’t even let Thanksgiving be great. She released her new liquid lipstick (aka lip paint) the day after at 12 midnight. Yes, ya girl set her alarm and snatched up two Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paints. At first…

BUY OR NAH: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Galaxy Collection (My honest opinion)

The Fenty Beauty foundations were released a few months ago and we’ve all been obsessing over them. I was lucky enough to be one of the few beauty girls who find their shade available (Ima pray for all who haven’t experienced it yet). And if you’re following me on Instagram (if not it’s not too late, click here) then you…
