New SheaMoisture SuperFruit Complex Firms, Smooths, and helps you say Goodbye to Cellulite

  SheaMoisture has taken over my life. I absolutely love love love their products so today I'm sharing with you my love for their new Superfruit Complex Bath and Body line. The SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Bath and Body line is said to Contour, Firm and Smooth your skin. As soon as I read the label all I could think was "Bye Bye Cellulite". I've not been in the gym at all even though I was on a 100 day journey ( I seriously have no focus) so a  product that could make it look like I wasn't carrying the pockets of fat was right up my alley. SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Collection contains a proprietary blend of certified organic Shea Butter; Mango Butter (a rich emollient that intensely moisturizes and rejuvenates for soft, supple skin); Green Coffee Bean Extract (helps nourish, contour and smooth dimpled, uneven skin); and antioxidant-rich complex of Raspberry…
SheaMoisture Cosmetics Foundation and Concealer Review. Plus See Them in Action!

SheaMoisture Cosmetics Foundation and Concealer Review. Plus See Them in Action!

I finally got my hands on the new SheaMoisture Cosmetic line! After seeing all the picture on Instagram which had us practically salivating I could not wait to try them out.  After failing at every attempt to find them at my local Target stores SheaMoisture kindly sent over a couple of products for me to try.  Currently there aren't many lines exclusively for Women of Color that are sold at places like Target or our local drug stores. The first ones that come to mind are Iman and Black Opal, but SheaMoisture is the only line that deals in Hair Care, Bath and Body and now Cosmetics! Currently this line is exclusively sold at Target and now is being sold on Target.com From the SheaMoisture Cosmetics line I received a Sheer Foundation, Creme Concealer, Wet and Dry Powder and a Lip Stain. While were mostly concerned with whats inside the…
Nothing to Wear? Check out my Spring Wardrobe Favorites!

Nothing to Wear? Check out my Spring Wardrobe Favorites!

If you're like me every time you look in your closet you have nothing to wear. It's even worse when it's time to change out your wardrobe for the season. Nothing fits, this particular item isn't in style anymore, and we all have that "What was I thinking?" piece of clothing that you throw into a donation bag and hope that nobody knows it came from you. This year for spring I'm doing things a bit different. Instead of going with  whats on trend I'm choosing to follow my heart and pick key pieces that look great on me and flatter my current curvy figure. Lets start with the accessories! Spring is all about color and going bold . This  year for my spring wardrobe  I wanted a few stand out pieces that I could coordinate with several different outfits. I'm so mad I'm late to the Cambridge Satchel band…
Outfit of the Day: Casual Color Pop

Outfit of the Day: Casual Color Pop

This past Saturday I decided to do another outfit of the Day. Since I was driving to Baltimore to pick up my mother who's visiting this weekend I decided to keep it pretty casual and simple but just add a pop of color with my makeup and accessories. I love pairing Coral and a bright summer blue together. Sometimes it can come off a bit much, but if you do it just the colors complement each other so well.  I just received my new Superga Lace Sneakers from Shopbop so I wanted to take them for a test run. With a simple pair of Loft Cuvy Straight leg jeans and a cotton top I was ready to hit the road. Of course, my outfit wasn't complete without my new Celine like handbag that I scooped from Target for only $29.99!  Check out pictures from my outfit below! 7408

Shopping My Stash MAC Surf Baby Blush

Shopping My Stash MAC Surf Baby Blush

Yesterday I went into Sephora to return something and walked back out empty handed. Yes I know I have a 15% off VIB coupon to use but I'm really trying to control my spending and get this credit card paid off before the end of May. I already featured this  product in a video that shows My Favorite Orange and Coral Blushes. Today I wanted to add a little bit of color to my cheeks so I pulled out my MAC Surf Baby Blush.  Isn't it gorgeous? It was a limited edition item that came about 2 years ago. Were you able to snag it? 7375
The Bevel Razor Helps Maintain My Husband’s Chocolate Drop!

The Bevel Razor Helps Maintain My Husband’s Chocolate Drop!

I think my husband is one of the sexiest men on earth. He has a football player's build, deep voice and a sexy chocolate bald head. Now remember ladies, I said he's married! Since my husband won't let his hair grow due to what he consider to be thin patches in his hair from wearing a football helmet, he keeps it shaved. This shaving process happens 3-4x's a week and while the end result is a semi smooth head - I say semi because he uses clippers - the only problem is hair gets ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE! This is one of my biggest pet peeves and though I've brought up the issue over and over again I'm always defeated in this area. I guess I just have to accept that there will be tiny pieces of hair in the sink, around the vanity and on the floor. Well, that's at least…

Everyone was casting their lots their company of choice and  I'll admit I would have loved to see her with Make Up For Ever or Nars, but with every nucleotide in my body I did not want to see her with MAC Cosmetics. Why? Why would I not want  see one of the most admirable and influential African American icon's with one of the top cosmetics companies in the world? It's simple MAC has handed out cosmetic collections like they're condoms at the free clinic. Yes, I said it and it's true. To me, a MAC collection doesn't live up to the…

Let Jergens BB Body Cream Bring Your Skin Back to Life!

This post was sponsored by Jergens BB Body Cream through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Jergens BB Body Cream, all opinions are my own."  BB Creams, they took the cosmetic industry by storm and soon there weren't only BB Creams but their were CC, and DD creams! Too much, yea I thought so too and I never really jumped on the band wagon because there was  never shade or a formula made that would work with my skin tone.  I'd honestly thought the BB Cream phase was over and it was until Jergens unleashed some newness on us. The Jergens BB Body Cream is a 5 in 1 product that is specifically formulated with self-adjusting tone technology that provides a customized solution for your skin tone.  The product hydrates, illuminates, corrects, evens, and firms. I've been  testing this product out for…

How a Beauty Blogger Spends her Tax Refund. Plus, you could win $100 to Amazon.com

This post was sponsored by Coupons.com and contains affiliate links. Everyone looks forward to getting their tax refund. While, some consider this to be a free loan we shouldn't be giving the government others like to think of it as the second Christmas and finally your chance to buy all the things you want for yourself. This year with our tax refund my husband and I decided to pay off one of our cars and a couple of other small bills. We also decided that each of us would receive a small allotment of "spending money" to do as we pleased with. With my small allotment I decided to grab a couple of beauty items I had my eyes on and also restock some items that I was running low on which honestly in my opinion is one of the funnest way to spend your Tax Refund money.

Open Toed Shoes not Allowed at Work? No Problem! Shop my Pointed Toe Flats Picks!

  I'm sure people there are several out there who will can feel my pain. Spring and Summer is upon us and at my job I'm not allowed to wear opened toed shoes. This makes perfect sense seeing as how I work in a a laboratory but it's really hard to see all your friends out and about in their cute open toed shoes while your piggy's aren't allowed to see the light of day until you get off work. This year I decided that I wasn't going let that rule get the best of me and so I've been on the look for the perfect pair of pointed  flat shoes to  spark some life into my confined summer wardrobe.  I like shoes that are very stylish, eye catching and also comfortable.  My favorite right now is the Alice + Olivia Stacey Face Pointed Shoe and of course because my name…

Bright and Fashionable Yellow Handbags for Spring and Summer

Bright and Fashionable Yellow Handbags for Spring and Summer

I've been in search of the perfect yellow handbag. It doesn't have to be super neon bright but just fun enough to be fashionable and turn heads.  I have my eyes set on this Yellow Chloe Marci' Mini Shoulder Bag, but since I have to be a responsible adult and make sure all bills are paid before I go out and buy this darling it may take me quite a while. Depending on the shade, some yellow handbags can even be worn during the fall and winter for that extra added pop of color.    Chloe Marcie Mini Shoulder Bag, Yellow Since I can't get my Chloe just yet I've picked out some other great Fashionable Yellow Handbags that  work for every budget.  I am really in love with the Serpui Marie Toucan Embroidered Fauna Clutch. It is the absolute cutest bag, and would work great for either day or…

Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss May Just Give You Super Powers!

Remember when I gave you guys all those juicy lip swatches of the Milani Cosmetics Color Sensational Lip Glosses? Well, get ready for something special to go on top of them. Introducing the Milani Cosmetics Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss!! There are about fourteen shades in all and I have ten swatched for you. The Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss delivers moisture and intense shine. When I first tried them out I seriously expected Lil' Mama to walk into my room and start a rendition of  "My Lip Gloss is Popping". Also, there's nothing better than a non tacky lip gloss. I hate a lipgloss that makes your lips feel like you have tape adhesive stuck on them. 7298

Hair Cuttery Gave me the Best Spring/Summer Hair Do!

  Yep! I changed my hair again!! *Twirls* I honestly believe hair is an accessory. It's not something you should obsess over, but you should just have fun with it. Last week I was drooling over this picture of a natural haired beauty with a platinum blonde box hair cut. Yes, I am linking you to my instagram again and that means you should follow me! Now Back to the subject at hand, my hair. So after falling in love with that picture my husband who seems to be a little bit more into my hair styles than I am now a days kept asking me when I was going to get it done. I was hesitant because that style is like super epic! I questioned myself. Do I really have what it takes to pull something like that off? I took a picture of the style to my fave…
My Picks from the Lord and Taylor 424 5th Collection

My Picks from the Lord and Taylor 424 5th Collection

I really enjoy shopping in Lord and Taylor, this store usually has great finds and sales on items that I won't find anywhere else. Did you see the Michael Kors bag that I scooped for a mere $158? Yep, I only paid $158 for a Large Michael Kors Saffiano Tote all thanks to the amazing deals and coupons that Lord and Taylors provides their customers with. They honestly keep me coming back as loyal shopper. Today I received an email featuring the new Lord and Taylor 424 5th collection. This collection has what I believe to be 165 pieces, mostly in the black and white family color scheme. I've seen bits and pieces of this collection in the store before and I almost walked out with the Bull Terrier sweater the same day I purchased my handbag, but the way my bank account is set up.... I've still got my…
