One Word That Boosts My Mood

don't know about you, but I love Summer. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a summer baby (August 17th - Leo in the house!!!), but Summer is that time of year I get to revamp myself all over again and have fun while doing it. I get to play with dresses, crop tops, ripped jeans, booty shorts, and everything else in between. I'm sure you've seen plenty of

Olay All Day Baby!

There are three reasons I never touched it; it smells like medicine, leaves my skin with white streaks causing me to look like a zombie from The Walking Dead, and it's think like sour cream. No one wants that on their skin. I definitely don't. Then I stumbled on the Olay Complete All-Day Moisturizer SPF 15 and girl, let me tell you!

Sponsored: [Finally, History Told By Us]

Think what you want, but being able to have your history told by those who look and sound like you is an empowering feeling. From a young age, as young as elementary, I can remember being taught history by those who were only privileged to the information created and shared by the "winners".

Loc'd Up With Smooth'N Shine

BABY!! You can't tell me Smooth 'N Shine didn't clean me up nicely. My hair feels light and free. It smells like what it's supposed to smell like; SHEA BUTTER! Haha! If you live close to a WalMart, Target, Rite-Aid or even a Family Dollar, go get yourself some Smooth 'N Shine. I think this is just another level of self-care if you ask me because my confidence just went up another .5 million notches (insert digital hair flip).

28 Days with Olay

Let's be honest, and when I say "let's" I really mean I'll be honest. There are days I will have a proper skincare routine and it'll seem like it's working and two months in, I have to change it. I know, how inconvenient. Like how dare you give up on my skin right when I was about to get use this good treatment? I'm not one of those folks who wants to wait until they're 50 years old to get my skin right, so when Olay connected with us, of course I jumped on Team Olay right quick
