Ladies, How Do You Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair?

Ideal Image

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. I'll always remember when I first started getting rid of the hair on my legs and my mom and aunt were acting like I was taking my organs out of my body. They insisted that leaving the hair was natural beauty, and I obviously thought differently. Coming from my mom, it was funny because the woman is practically hairless, so it was easy for her to say that. My aunt, on the other hand, was truly Continue Reading

Ladies, I Have Discovered A GLOWING Beauty Secret!

Conair-true-glow-Sonic-Skincare-Solution---4

Ladies, you know that beauty products make me weak in the knees. I haven't been to a beauty store for a while, and it's not because I don't want to go. No, it's because I DO want to go, but I am afraid of the kind of financial damage I will do to my pocket when I get there. But guess who came a-knocking on my door? Conair!!! I tell you, one day, this blog will have me doing a sleep over at the Obama's. So Conair is currently running a campaign called, Ready, Set, Glow. And the whole point Continue Reading

My Entire Thoughts On Boycotting Target

Altuzarra For Target (Image via Target)

I was online today doing some browsing when I saw a hashtag #BoycottingTarget and I had to find out why. So apparently, designer Altuzarra is collaborating with Target to release some pieces, but none of them go past a size 16. Therefore, the plus-size community is furious, reasonably. Disclaimer: I don't like the word plus-size, but I'm using it here because that's what they use. Maybe it's because I'm not in the fashion industry, but I tend to assume that not all brands will come in all Continue Reading

Shoe Crush: Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump

Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump - Black & Blue

My Sweet Potatoes, these shoes have been chasing me in my dreams. I dream of owning them. I dream of wearing them. I have a pair of black panty hose that in my head will go perfectly with a short skater dress or skirt ... and of course these pumps. I want them in black and in blue. Oh, my good Lord, I want them BADLY. But they cost $215. Each. If you are reading this post right now, please know that this is a sign from the good God Almighty that you should buy me one (or both) of these shoes. Continue Reading

Hello MAC Red, Nice To Finally Meet You

MAC Red

This may sound weird, I know, but this MAC Red lipstick is my very first red lipstick. Ever. More than that, I don't even wear lipstick a lot. Apart from this MAC Red lipstick, I own only 4 other lipsticks, and 3 of them came as free gifts from Lancome. But I had been reading a lot of beauty blogs and a lot of these beauty bloggers kept talking about the MAC Ruby Woo. So I went to MAC with the intention of buying the Ruby Woo lipstick. When I got there, however, I realized that the Ruby Woo Continue Reading

About Last Weekend: Lancôme Jazzed Me Again

With flash and without flash

Back in 2008, Lancôme was doing a free makeup session by "Tommy," and I went because it was free. I had no intention to buy anything, but nothing wrong with getting made up for free. That was how I went there and loved Lancôme so much that I ended up using it. It's been 6 years, and I have never gone back [Read that post here]. Not only have I not left Lancôme, I have actually tried to leave (for no reason) by finding something else that works just as good. I got samples from a bunch of brands, Continue Reading

I’m Thinking About Perming My Hair

Rihanna in short hair

And I'm thinking about cutting it, too *covers face and runs away* Let me explain. I have recently been fantasizing about doing something different with my hair. All my life, I have never done anything special. I have braided it, permed it, sewn weaves on it, put wigs on it, and kept it natural. That's it. That's all I've done. I have never cut my hair for the purpose of changing its style, nor have I ever, ever dyed it. The only times I cut my hair were (1) when I went from elementary to Continue Reading

What I Wore To Sade’s & Pelumi’s Wedding

What I Wore

I blogged about Sade's and Pelumi's wedding, so you have already seen what I wore. But I drove to Funmie's house to take these pictures, so you're gonna look at them, damn it! Because Igwe slept at the hotel with the wedding party on Friday night, I had no one to take my pictures on Saturday afternoon, so I drove to Funmie's house (about 10 minutes away from me). These pictures were rushed cause I had to drive an hour and 28 minutes to the wedding in Washington D.C. I forgot to take an up Continue Reading

Face And Body By Shea Moisture & Nubian Heritage

Shea Moisture Facial Products

Most people know Shea Moisture and Nubian Heritage for their natural hair products, but did you know that they also make awesome natural beauty products, too? I'm talking body, face, make-up, and even make-up brushes. I want to tell you today about some facial products from Shea Moisture and some soaps (and lotion) from Nubian Heritage. Like most people, I first knew about Shea Moisture because of my natural hair. But I later discovered that they are much more than hair. I have tried several Continue Reading

What I Wore To Dinner At Morgan State University

Wasn't sure how formal or informal dinner would be, so I was trying to stay in between

Yesterday I told you about the infamous dinner I attended at Morgan State University. Today, I'm showing you what I wore. By the way, the reason why I'm doing these outfit posts is because it's something I've always wanted to do but never really had any clothes I wanted to show you because as you know, I'm currently going through a fashion disaster. I still haven't updated my closet, but I decided to start where I am with what I have, and then we can grow together, no? Anyway, the dinner was Continue Reading
