My beauty routine, or at least my product selection, has NEVER been consistent. Sure, I cleanse, tone, moisturize, and treat. The issue is that I tend to use whatever is hanging out on my bathroom shelves. At first thought you may say, "Well, what's wrong with that? Don't you know what's on your own shelves?" Ummmmm... well... not really.
Tre and I had the opportunity to try out a set of crayons from Effortless Art Crayons. We used them on his homework. He likes the grip and I enjoyed the way the product blends with other colors. Watch. Subscribe. Check out Effortless Art Crayons.

PARTING WITH POLISH IN 3 EASY STEPS
As we embark on a new season, I was determined to establish some order to my makeup collection, starting with my nail polish. I have settled with the fact that I, a polish lover and enthusiast, am not in need of so many colors in order to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. I'm not trying to get deep, but anytime I do my nails, I spend 30 minutes picking out a color, just to select the same ones over and over again. It's quite sad looking at the barely opened glass pots of paint. Untouched. Unloved. With that said, the time has come to pitch them into the trash. Heartless, I know, but oh well. They're taking up valuable shelf space. So... here it is: Minimize your Makeup Collection, pt. une: Parting with Polish IN 3 STEPS!
Why? Why in the world would you do this to me? I am taking this personally. BTW if you didn’t already know, I am an avid Hip Hop fan. I’ve been infatuated since my first taste of Hot 97.1 as a child. My love for hip hop, and music in general, was renewed right after I left my husband. Go figure. Back to the Jigga Man. How dare this project be so…
Salutations ladies and gents. I need you to take out your handy dandy notebooks and journals and start writing. I have a little exercise for you to enjoy. I decided a while back that I HAD to start writing again.... not necessarily for the blog, but for me. Writing and reading brings forward growth. Perhaps you're interested in a little growth too? If so, read on and enjoy this topic list.
I am calling this piece, "Beach Got Curves". I love the esthetic of this suit. It draws the attention away from the mid-section, covers, and yet reveals some skin. Swoon* I would surely pair this with a short robe, which led me to this sketch.
Dear Black Americans that are mad at SM,
People forget that the owners of Shea Moisture, Sundial llc., have been catering to the all black community (exclusively) for years with their other products in Nubian Heritage. Do you hear me? BLACKS ONLY. Black people barely spoke on them or even use the product
... and it's older than Shea Moisture. This told the company that they cannot solely cater to the Black Community because y'all really don't support like y'all claim to. Shea Moisture's marketing plan was always broad. You rarely see a Shea Moisture ad with a black person on it. It's always been a colorful background and an illustration of the product.
SM isn't trying to remain some mom and pop shop brand. They're competition isnt an Ors or whatever... it's Dove. It's Loreal. Think bigger. A huge household name with black DNA. Be proud!
This whole situation has been nasty for SM and shows me how we're just a bunch of crabs in a barrel. When you go to the Asian owned beauty supply store and see that ALL the products are catering to another race no Asian says, "Why aren't we being represented here? Let's boycott!" Because that would be STUPID! Let that Black man and his family get that money from every square footage of this earth from every race, and stop looking so sad.
This curvy OOTW Sketch also comes from a collection created on my Polyvore account. I cannot get enough of rompers for the summer season, which is why I selected this vibrant Forever 21+ piece.I see it paired with an African print bow and dangling earrings.....
