January Favorites

Hey everyone! It is been such a long time since I have done this but your girl is back! I have picked up a lot of new things (and some old favorites) that I have want to share. Let's get started!

Victoria Secrets Fantasies Body Sprays
Okay, this defiantely is not only  a January favorite as I have been wearing these fragrances for YEARS. I remember that day that my mom gave me a bottle of Love Potion  back in the 7th grade. It was love at first smell. Ever since a bottle of Love Potion and Pure Seduction are a must for me at all times. These fragrances are nothing short of amazing. I am also loving the new packaging of these fragrances. The pops of color and the chic sleek silhouette are very appealing to the eye.

Shea Moisture African Black Soap
For the past year I have been dealing with lots of hormonal acne. Because it was getting so bad I decided to get a microdermabrasion & extractions (blog post coming soon). I now have quite a few scars and hyperpigmentation on my face. I have always heard that African black soap has many benefits so I decided to see for my self. While the soap improves skin tone, heals problem skin, and much more my favorite property of this soap is the fact that it helps to fade discoloration. And not to mention the soap is very inexpensive. I actually snagged 2 at Walgreens during their BOGO free sales.

Maybelline Fit ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
This foundation right here is the truth. It has been my go to foundation for quite sometime. What I love most about this foundation is the fact that is lives up to it's name. The foundation is not an extreme matte but it is extremely long lasting with a flawless finish. What else can a girl ask for?

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish
Speaking of a flawless finish this powder has become my favorite. It can be hard to find a powder that does not make you appear cakey, but this one is a winner. If I am going for a natural look I will apply this over a BB cream and be out the door. It is super light and gives me a very natural look.

NYX Butter Gloss
I normally opt for matte lips but as you all know matte lips and cold weather do NOT mix. For this reason I have rekindled my love for lip gloss. I picked these up on a whim when I saw them at CVS for 50% off. The gloss is very pigmented & not overly sticky. They also come in a variety of colors all named after sweet desserts. Pictured here are "Apple Strudel" and "Cherry Cheesecake"

New Year, New Hair

Hey everyone! First and foremost I must say happy new year! I hope your year is off to a great start. To bring in the new year I decided to revisit one of my old looks. Do you remember the time that I created an ombré crochet wig? If not check it out here. It was literally one of my favorite hairstyles of mine in 2015 so I decided to revisit it. Out of curiosity and and urge to switch it up I brought this bad boy back out & decided to revamp it by using flexi rods and to my surprise it turned out pretty good.  Want to see how I achieved the look?
