When Life Hands You Lemons: Where Have I Been?

Hello everyone! Is it too late to say “Happy New Year?” I know I’ve abandoned my website 🙁 & while I have no clear explanation as to why, I’ve really been feeling so discouraged since the New Year started. Also so down. I think a lot about my brother. In my last post, I went into a little detail that my brother passed in the beginning of December. & I think of him so much. I know if he were alive, he wouldn’t want me to be sad. He’d want me to rejoice, & make lemonade out of lemons basically lol! Continue reading

How I Create My Flat Lays For Instagram

Hey, everyone! Last week was so busy for me! So drained from my job. I literally don’t have any energy to do anything once I am off from work. This week I picked up some shifts. I’ll be working 6 days straight! 😩 Need the funds but I am not happy with the thought of being there for 6 days 😭 I had to take a break from Instagram. I needed to recollect my thoughts. I hope my motivation to create posts for my Instagram will soon come back this week. I’ve been feeling a little unmotivated, to be honest. Depression is a bitch. I have products that need to be reviewed. Swatches that need to be done but I am feeling so blah 😕

Ironically, I’m here to talk about Instagram anyhow! I recently saw a post in a group I run on FB, about creating flat lays or flat layouts as they are called. A lot of people ask me what I do to create my flat lays. Honestly, they’re pretty easy to do & achieve! Here’s some information on how I create my flat lays/layouts for my Instagram.

My Blogger Journey: Reasons Why I Became a Blogger

Hola loves! Bienvenidos! Recently I’ve been sent some messages that really lifted my spirits. I’ve had a few girls come to me stating that they started blogging because of my blog. Or that my blog was really good & that I should never give up. I’ve been super down lately! Super discouraged, so those words really helped me & allowed me to get by. This encouraged me to tell you my story & why I went into blogging in the first place. I think this would be a good time to talk about it 😀 Be prepared for a long story lol!

Top 10 Beauty Influencers? Forbes You Effed Up Sis!

I’m here with another chitchat blogpost, y’all!! 😀 So I think we all have seen the article floating around with Forbes introducing their “Top 10 Beauty Influencers” of this year (even though we just hit the second quarter of the year *insert eye roll* Like sis, where’s the logic?). If you haven’t, here it is! Now I don’t think that there was much wrong with the list (yes I did). Although I don’t believe that Jeffree Star nor Manny Mua should’ve been on that list. I cannot consider them influencers, especially JS. But I truly digress lol! However, the main issue was that not one black beauty influencer was apart of that list. We have a slew of black YouTube Vloggers, a few who have reached 1 Million subbies at that. & who have a heavy following on Instagram! & for this, I will give you MY Top 10 BLACK Beauty Influencers!

Is Mac High End or Nah?

Hey! Happy Tuesday everyone! How was everyone’s weekend? I hope better than mine, I was working -_- & preparing for this crazy snowstorm about to hit the NorthEast! I guess having a snow day wouldn’t be so bad. I can catch up on shows, create more blog posts! I am in the process of transitioning my blog from beauty reviews to more lifestyle posts. That was actually the goal from the beginning. However, I don’t feel like I have much of a “life” to blog about lol! Nonetheless, that will change. & very soon 😉
