It’s no secret that I straighten my hair. I do it, not because I don’t love my curls, but because it is easier. Believe or not it is easier for me to deal with my hair straight, than to deal with my curls. And it probably has a lot to do with the fact that I haven’t found a product that my curls love! My straight hair, however, is loving my new hair tools by Anjou!
Hi there! As you may know I’m off to vacation in Mexico soon and I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the items I consider essentials. As these may be helpful to you, if you have any travel plans this Spring or Summer. I have six categories below and a few of my favorite items in each. Keep scrolling and take a peek. 😉
I am always looking for flattering pieces and when it comes to swimwear, high waisted styles are my go-to. One pieces can also be flattering, so I have link both styles and some bikinis as well.
A good pair of earrings can be the final touch to a look. I have found some really fun ones for you to add to your list. Ps. they are all really versatile too – you’re welcome.

Wipes! I feel that this is an essential in any home, and I mean any home – with and without little ones. While, as a mom having wipes around my home comes with the territory, I have to admit that I am stoked to have Kleenex Wet Wipes as an option now. Why? Because I don’t have to share with the girls anymore – Woohoo!
Also because of the fact that Kleenex Wet Wipes don’t have the harsh chemicals that other wipes carry! Which means that they’re safe to use on my face. And they are also thick and soft enough to use on my hands.
It has been very easy to incorporate Kleenex Wet Wipes into my lifestyle because they are conveniently small and fit right into my bag. Which is perfect, since I am always On The Go! I also keep a pack in my car because that’s where lots of messes happen.
I often do my make up in the car and let me tell you that it’s not an easy job! Seriously, am I the only one that find applying lipstick on in front of a car’s mirror a bit challenging? Luckily, I can correct any make up mishaps with my Kleenex Wet Wipes. And I love knowing that my skin is not exposed to harsh chemicals anymore.
I have to admit that after turning thirty, I have become more conscious about my skin and I’m frequently trying to find ways to better care for it. It can be a tough to find the right products for women with more melanin like myself. Having found Avya, a line that was “designed to indulge all skin tones,” per the Huff Post has made an impact on my skincare routine with the use of only two products and in a short period of time.
I have been using the Anti-aging Power Serum and the Eye Bright Cream – for the last 7 days and I already love how my skin has started feel in such a short period of time.
Eye Bright Cream
My eyes have always been an area of concern, as I feel that there is a large amount of pigmentation around them. I have religiously used the Eye Bright Cream two times each day per instructions and with each use my eyes feel energized. Read More
Today I want to share with you what’s in my Make Up Bag. These are what I considers musts for Valentine’s Day, and beyond. There’s only four products that I swear by. While, I know that there are many other products that can be added to a make-up routine, these four are enough for me.
When it comes to make-up, I am a minimalist and naturalist. I was just raised that way. My mom always told me that there wasn’t a need to wear make up everyday. That you should save it for special occasions. That way when you go to an event, you dress up and wear make up and people will be wowed. That just sort of stuck with me. Anyhow, below are some of my favorites and links for you to find them.
So I am a little obsessed with Maybelline’s Matte Liquid line. The three colors that I am wearing on rotation are Nude Flush, Pink Charge and Berry Boost. The nude is the one that I honestly wear the most, it has enough pigment to add some color while it is still subtle. When I am feeling bold, I pick between the Pink Charge or Berry Boost.
