Resetting with Olay

The winter has finally retired its hideous weather and my skin is ready to breathe again. You know me, I love a good skincare routine once the season changes. Over the winter, I did a 28-day challenge with Olay and it kept me going. My skin improved and my makeup sat pretty (read more here). However, this spring, I’m continuing with my...

Sponsored: [Black History 2018 was Lit!]

Remember last month, I wrote an entire post about "AT&T's 28 Days History by Us: Black History Told By Those Making it"? (If you need a recap, check out my post HERE!) Well, it was a hit for me and let me explain why. For a whole month, yes, an entire month, I was able to view our own content creators such as Khadi Don (IN LOVE WITH HER!),...

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". It's not until I was in undergrad going through my first sociology course, studying race & class relations, that's when I realized that a majority of what I've learned up to the age of 18 was a subjective history written by regular folks.

It's Going To Be Okay!

A lot can happen in the blink of an eye. Death happens. Jobs lost. Friendships come to an end (or maybe a bittersweet pause). Over the last year, there are a few lessons I've learned, but the one that sticks the most is:

Show up for others how you'd want them to show up for you.

You're Missing Out on the LG Twin Wash System!

Have you ever tried doing laundry while your To-Do List is the length of the US Constitution, only to realize not everything fits and you're on a strict timeline? Or when you need fresh/clean clothes because in less than 5 hours you need to be at a networking event, but don't want to do a huge load? I know! Me too! I don't know why but I always end up in a dilemma of having too little or too much laundry.

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

Prep for Fall with Apothederm

Recently, I found myself trying and testing products for the Fall. Reason being, Fall is weird for me. My skin isn't too dry but it doesn't get super oily. Yet, my skin acts up longer than usual. I end up with dark spots and circles for weeks on end and I find myself constantly wearing makeup - something I've been trying not to do.

Post-Yoga With Suave Body Wash

Yoga during the summer is like intentionally laying out in a 100 degree weather on the beach without a towel, sunscreen, and water. I'm really not exaggerating. I before to Bikram Yoga during the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons because I'll walk out into cool air. Although yoga is great for my body, sometimes I'd find my self rubbing dead skin cells off post-workout AND after taking a shower. That's when I discovered Suave Body Wash.
