#TestTheWater: Why Simple Cleansing Micellar Water Is Part of My Daily Routine


If you've been following me on Instagram or Twitter then you know that I've been really struggling with acne as of late. It's super frustrating because I've changed my diet, cut out soda's and
there here comes all this gross, ugly and embarrassing acne. A major culprit has been the sweating that I've been doing at the gym so I had to find something that was simple to use pre and post workout. Luckily, I stumbled across the Simple Cleansing Micellar Water and it's become a daily gym essential.

#Approaching33: My 3 Biggest Fears & Inadequacies


I thought long and hard about how and even if I would actually write this post because it's so personal. I tossed the idea around and after sitting on it for a few weeks, I decided to just share what's going on with me behind the smiles and beauty chatter. I'll be turning 33 (#Approachng33) on the 26th of this month and all I've been able to think about is how much I haven't accomplished in these nearly 33years. I'll be the 1st to admit that I am my own worse critic but these feelings and fears are very real.

Before I share in detail I want to express that I'm sharing not for sympathy, or anyone to pat me on the back. I'm sharing because I know that coming to terms with the fact that you may be depressed or feeling inadequate isn't always easy. With that said...

So here we are on week 6 and I think I've hit my peak! I debated over if and how I would share my recent struggles and well, here goes. While I have thoroughly enjoyed getting in shape, eating clean and losing weight I have to admit that along with the positive changes my body has had some considerably negative reactions.

Growing Out My Big Chop


A few weeks ago I ranted about how I was regretting my 2nd Big Chop  and how I was in desperate need of a sew-in or braids.  After letting my sides grow out for a few weeks I was on the hunt for a skilled braider that could make a hair miracle happen for me and lucky for me,  Brooke at Aliya Wray's Beauty Parlor was just the miracle worker I needed! You've heard me talk about my love for Aliya Wray's before so it's no surprise that my hair turned out perfectly! Keep in mind that I have a really short cut & she was able to catch ALL of my hair in braids. 

So for the next few months you can expect to see me in my newly installed Box Braids and I'll more than likely be giving the crochet braids (worn above) another try.

#ShadeAmerica: Sun Safety With Murad

Affiliate Links|PR Samples

It's no secret that sun safety is essential, and far too often we neglect use the proper sunscreen for everyday use. I'm thrilled that Murad has partnered with the American Academy of Dermatology to "shade" 1 million children within the next 5 years! This initiative will help build shade structures in parks and playgrounds across the country, keeping our kiddies safe from the harmful rays of the sun.

The great folks at Murad have put together a Shade America Sun Safety Kit to help support the initiative.
