My Glamorous Everyday Make-Up Routine



Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my almost every day glamorous makeup look. On most  days I have been trying to put more effort into my eye look. Especially those days I know I have meetings scheduled and I need that extra confidence. Again, I don’t do this every single day I do tone it down if I don’t feel like being this glam at the office. But this past month I have been wearing this look 3 out of the 5 days of the week.


What I used: 

Profusion Mixed Metals Eyeshadow Palette

Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Foundation

Anastasia Amrezy Highlight

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Hudson





Directions for the Eye Look:

One: Place Adventurous on the crease.

Two: Place Rust on the 2/3 of the outer corner of your eye lid.

Three: Use Devious to darken you crease and blend the look together

Four: If you wish add a touch of Risky to the outer crease for a darker look.

Five: Apply your favorite highlighter on the inner corner of your eye.  You can also use any of the shimmering shades this palette has to offer.



Have you tried any of the any of the Profusion Makeup Products? I just recently discovered them at Target this past holiday season. I am highly impressed by the pigmentation and the wear of this palette.

I hope you all enjoyed this eye look!

See you all on Friday.





February Favorites 2018


Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my beauty favorites. I was a bit worried going into this blog post that I was going to be repeating myself from my last beauty favorites, but I have some new things that I haven’t talked about yet. I feel like this month was such a good month in terms of personal growth and new professional opportunities.

Okay now onto what you all are here for the beauty bits…


I definitely have a new affordable beauty palette as well as new favorite liquid lipsticks. As well as two health favorites that revolve around essential oils.


I am so in love with a good clean base and the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme which gives you such a high coverage finish with very little product. I finally switched my mascara and boy this Covergirl Total Tease is Last but, not least I am digging these liquid lipsticks from Anastasia.


This Profusion mixed metals palette has quickly become one of my favorites everyday palette which gives me such a ample range of natural colors to choose from.


Can we talk about how important cleaning your face is and just taking care of your body in general. I recently added a few product that help me achieve this. The e.l.f hydrating water cleansing cloths are such a great affordable option to help me get rid of my makeup. I also have added a eye cream to my night routine which has surprisingly helped my under eyes.

The last two things are essential oily related. I have incorporated the thieves dental floss into my routine and I have been enjoying the way my teeth feel, weird thing to say I know! Last but not least I made my very first essential oil roller ball. I have been dealing with a lot more stress and I made a Calming roller for those day I need extra support.

What were some of your favorite beauty products for February? 

Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!


Exploring D.C. – Calabash Tea Bar and Cafe


Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all an exciting new coffee shop that my friend and I ended up going to a few Friday nights ago. This café shop is located close to the Shaw-Howard metro station. It’s called Calabash Tea Bar & Cafe.

My friend and I decided to have their chai tea which was amazing. They also have a vegan menu of pastries and snacks. I tried their apple zucchini bread which again was amazing.





This Cafe is such a awesome place and it’s a must see if you are in the area. Definitely a new favorite place that I will be going back to.

Have a great day!


Victoria Secret Pink – Shell Yeah Bath Bomb


Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a new bath bomb I recently picked up at Victoria’s Secret. It looks like they recently added a new section to their beauty section and one of those additions was bath bombs. You can shop the collection here. I ended up picking two different scents the pink pineapple and the soothing lavender because both of them smelled the best in my opinion.




I was intrigued by how well these were going to compare to a LUSH bath bomb since the original retail price is $6.95, but they are on sale for $3.95 right now. Here are a few things that I discovered about this product as I took a bath the other day.

There were no bubbles.

The smell of the bath bomb still stuck around during the bath

The way this bath bomb makes your skin feel is amazing

You get out of the bath with extra moisturized skin

Overall if you are looking for a bath bomb that gives you bubbles this is not the product for you. If you are in need of extra moisture for your skin then you have found the winning product. I feel that next time I use this product I need to pair it with another bath bomb that makes a ton of bubbles so I can have the best of both worlds.

*I added lavender flowers to add a more relaxing feel to the bath after I found out I wasn’t going to be provided with bubbles*

Have any of you tried these new bath bombs from PINK?

Have a great day.


Update + Future Giveaway


Happy Wednesday Everyone!

2018 has been such a interesting year for me. I learned such a valuable lesson straight off the bat that has shaped who I am becoming. It wasn’t anything earth shattering it was a lesson I was avoiding all of last year. I kept putting my head in the sand and just pretending it wasn’t meant for me. Life took the veil off my eyes and here I am today feeling like the same old me, but with more life bruises than I would have liked. I have learned to accept that I will get scrapes, bruises and scars during this journey called life and you can either embrace them or continue to sit with your head under the sand and ignore them.

These upcoming weeks are going to be crucial because I took a huge step towards my own happiness and better mental health. If all pans out I will be writing a follow-up blog post explaining a bit about what I am referring to. I think others like myself may find it helpful. As vague as I am currently being I just want to let you know you always have a option, even if it’s not convenient at the moment life has a way of figuring things out to give you a way out of any tough situation you may be in.


Okay… Enough emotional stuff let’s talk about my future giveaway. I have decided that once I hit 700 followers on my blog I will be doing a exciting giveaway for you all. I want to give back to all of you who have supported me and have stuck by me through the good and the bad.

With a grateful heart I want to say thank you!

Stay tune for the giveaway and make sure you share my page if you think this may help someone.

Have a beautiful day!

Today I am sharing with you three primers that I use on my face on a daily basis. As a oily skinned girl I have to make sure that I use products that help my skin retain all of moisture and makeup products I put on my face. If I am going to spend 30+ minutes on a full face of makeup I want it to stick around for a while.

NYX Pore Filler

For the Eyes:
