I'm seriously tempted to post a picture of Angela Bassett on my mirror for daily beauty inspiration.  At 56 Angela still slays the competition and I can only hope to look half as amazing as she does in my 50's.

Check out what she has to say about aging and take a peek at her a fab!



NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream:: Transylvania

Tuesday, October 07, 2014


From the first moment I saw the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania  I was on a quest to make it mine! I keep telling myself that I'm going to break the dark fall lip trend and rock some neutrals this season (which I may actually do) but this color was just screaming my name!

I've really become quite the fan of the NYX glosses, the quality is great and they're the definition of budget friendly.



What fall lip colors are you obsessing over?

#BetterEveryDay:: My Journey To Becoming A Better Me

Monday, October 06, 2014


Who doesn't want to get better? Trust me, it's not a trick question beauties but getting better involves change and change can be quite challenging to say the least. I recently became a Murad Skin Care ambassador and they are currently campaigning #BetterEveryDay and it really forced me to think about how I could become a better person every single day. Of course I'd like to imagine that I'm pretty close to perfection but the reality is that perfection is not attainable and even if it was I'd be far from it. Almost as if the stars aligned, I started becoming pro-active in my strive to become better. I'll admit that the journey to a better me hasn't been a walk in the part but when I look myself in the mirror every day and in those quiet times when I'm alone with my thoughts I realize I could not have chosen a better challenge.

My Foundation Free Beauty Essentials

Thursday, October 02, 2014

Every now and then there comes a time when you’ve got to give your skin a break and give it lots of TLC. I shamefully admit that over the last month I’ve been doing a really crappy job of taking care of my skin like I know I should.  As a result, I’ve decided to let my skin do a little breathing and go foundation free for the next few weeks. I’ve got a few blemishes that I want to clear up and I’ll be using some pore refiners and masks to whip my face back into shape.

Although I’m skipping the foundation, it doesn’t mean that I have walk around with a totally makeup free face every day.  If I had to pick three beauty essentials I’d always pick bronzer, mascara and lip gloss so it just makes sense. One of my favorite cruelty free brands, Tarte Cosmetics is perfect for my foundation free days because their bronzers and glosses are pure perfection for brown girls and the mascara’s infuse my lashes with lots of hydration and volume.

Beautiful Conversations:: Jodie Patterson of DooBop

Thursday, September 18, 2014

As a brown beauty, searching for non-ethnic luxury products that work for all women hasn't always been easy. When DooBop launched almost a year ago, I was so excited that there now a beauty destination with products that were not only able to meet my beauty needs, but also hand selected.
Doop Bop is the first e-tailer designed for ethnic, women of color with textured hair.  Co-Founder, Jodie Patterson is a extraordinary visionary seeking to change the way we consume beauty. I had the great opportunity to speak with her about the brand and her general thoughts on beauty.
