Avocado Oil | My New Favorite Fix For Dry Winter Skin

avocado oil

I’m a native Floridian but since moving to Maryland about 3 years ago, the cold winters have really taken a toll on my skin. I’ve honestly always been a dry skin sufferer but there’s something about living in an area that gets temperatures in the teens that made things a little worse. I’ve tried every big name lotion and cream that’s marketed for dry skin but at the end of the day, I would still have a hard time taking care of my trouble areas. […]

Product Review | Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Mud Mask

Shea Moisture Peace Rose Complex Senstive Skin Mud Mask

During the Fall season, my skin tends to get dry and flaky and I like to incorporate a good mask so I was definitely interested. The name alone sounded amazing but what really attracted me was the fact that it was marketed to people with sensitive skin. Let me say that […]

If you’re looking for a post that lists reason after reason why choosing to wear my natural hair was the worst decision I’ve made since wearing Melissa’s (I know you remember those terrible, plastic translucent shoes), you’ve reached the wrong post.

So I’ve pretty much mastered the art of ‘makeup in a hurry’.  I love glitterly eye shadow […]

ColourPop is a cosmetic company located in Cali that sells beautiful makeup for super reasonable prices. They’re known for the pigmentation of their makeup and they sell mostly lipsticks or glosses, blush, highlighter, eye shadow, and brow products. What did you buy? How much was it? I bought an Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade ‘Bestie’ which has a crème finish and […]
