All Hail Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Healing Serums!!


The other day, I was at my aunt's house and I was shocked when I saw my little cousin's legs. They were white. And he's a dark skinned black boy. His legs were so white that Igwe started calling him Mr. White (Hi, Walter White!) The winter dryness had taken him to a level of dryness that even I had never seen before. And if you live in a State like Maryland, then you know that this winter has been brutal to say the least. I'll admit something: I'm still a newbie in skincare and beauty. I've Continue Reading

2015 Grammys Red Carpet Fashion


I have a strange relationship with red carpet fashion. Sometimes I watch it, and other times I don't. Same thing for blogging about it. Sometimes I do, and other times I don't. Today, I'm doing. My favorites are Taylor Swift, Ciara, Ne-Yo, Gwen Stefani, and Rihanna. Let me explain Rihanna: It was not love at first sight, but then on a second and closer look, I like it better. But I realize that I like it Continue Reading

About My Birthday (And What I Wore)


First, thank you so much for all the birthday love! I am so very grateful. You guys are the best, walahi. Now, let me tell you how my birthday went. This year, I decided to take pictures for my birthday because I had never done so before. So we took the pictures on Sunday (January 11th 2015), but we didn't calculate our moves very well. We went out there (Downtown Baltimore) all confidently like we we had our weather destiny in our hands. Wrong. It was so freaking cold! And to make it worse, it Continue Reading

What I Wore To Our Wedding Photoshoot

These earrings might be my new favorite. Might be.

If the title of this post is totally confusing to you, it means you didn't read the post about our wedding. Or about our marriage. Or our union. Whatever you want to call it. But the post is here. Please read it. That said, although you have already seen all of what I wore in that post, I just really like doing these posts. I did not have a color code or theme, but I knew that I wanted Igwe to wear all black, and he obliged me. All I knew about my outfit was that I wanted a skirt. Everything Continue Reading

Igwe & I Were Bamboozled At The Mall

Deja Vu Skin care products

So the other day, Igwe and I went to the Towson Mall because we had to go to Macy's for me to return a top and buy it back. The top originally cost $50, but I returned it and bought it for $20. Yes to coupons! We could have gone to Macy's in White Marsh, which is a lot closer to us, but we went to Towson because I wanted to stop at H&M to check for a belt. We were at H&M couple days earlier and I had seen this beautiful belt. I picked it up, then I left it at the cashier, but when I got Continue Reading

Vaseline Cares For Me … And I Have Proof


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vaseline. All opinions are 100% mine. For those of us who live in places where there are seasonal changes, especially winter, we know how rough that can be on our skin (and even hair). For example, right now, my hair cabinet looks like I'm going into a new oil business. I have all kinds of oils in there because I'm trying to care better for my hair. The same thing goes for my skin. The winter is so dry that certain parts of my body just get Continue Reading

What I Wore To Girls’ Night Out


I recently went to girls' night out with Solachi, Funmie, Ibukun, and Tim, but that's not the girls' night out I'm talking about. I had another girls' night out with another group of girls. This one was with my work friends, Lisa, Tasha, Jemela, and Jennifer. Coincidentally, we had it at TGIF, too. No, I didn't pick the venue. As a matter of fact, it's mere coincidence that I have gone to TGIF twice in such short time. It happened on Saturday. We talked about how most of us are pretty much Continue Reading

Gucci Now Has A Cosmetic Line

Gucci Luxurious Moisture Rich Lipstick-in Tiger Lily

Yup. Gucci has fallen in line and now has a cosmetics line that just launched this month. I personally do not currently own any Gucci item. I think I've had a perfume in the past, but I can't say for sure. Anyway, they have makeup now. I haven't seen the makeup in person, but I went through their eye shadows and lipsticks, and I picked out my favorite colors. By the way, I'm currently having a thing with lipsticks. I used to be a lip gloss girl, but oh, how the tides have turned. The lipstick Continue Reading

Thanks To My Hair, Chinedu Wants My Number


Remember when I went to Faith's wedding? Of course, you remember, the post went up only yesterday. Thank you for the compliments on the hair. I have received so many compliments on and offline. Just yesterday, someone said to me, "Oh, you finally decided to wear your hair down, it's beautiful." She thought it was my natural hair, and I just couldn't break her heart by telling her the truth. Ha! Okay, so my hair was done via crochet braiding, and it was done by my sister-in-law, Nyambe. She's Continue Reading
