Spring Fresh: Lips for days

Spring is in the air and I can hardly wait. So this is something a little different for my beauty lovers. I wanted to share my go-to spring look. This look can easily be glammed up or down depending on your preferences. I love fresh looking makeup vs the hyper IG makeup styles. Being someone who works in a corporate atmosphere I have to be able to be me yet still not scare the client lol.

I love spring minus the allergies that it produces as it’s the start of a new season. The birds are chirping, the flowers are in bloom and there is just a nice peace to the world. I also love the spring fashion and beauty as its fresher looking and more femme. Winter will always be bae as I rock things against then norm all year round.

Plus size fitness gear is one of those areas that is near and dear to my heart. I’m a proud plus size chick who also loves to be healthy. I was able to connect with a dope ass brand, Rainbeau Curves which makes fitness gear for those who are of the plus variety. Their clothing helps you slay while getting a dope workout in. I have worn many different brands and some work well and some not so much. I was hyper geeked to go workout after getting my package. Who doesn’t like new gear while hitting the treadmill!

The Ultimate Bath Time: HiRuna Island Soaps Unboxing

The Ultimate Bath Time: HiRuna Island Soaps Unboxing

Hello, beauties! I wanted to come really quick to share some goodies I got from one of my fav natural brands, HiRuna Island Soaps! They are starting their very own monthly box which will have you set for the month with bath time bliss goodness. The box will have one bar of soap, 2 bath bombs, and foaming sugar scrub. Each product is awesome in its own right but together will make you feel like you bathed in Beyoncé’s tears. I will share the tea on these goodies in the Ultimate Bath Time: HiRuna Island Soaps Unboxing!

Soap

I love soaps that are good for your skin. I have always been really big on my bath time as it’s my way of finding my Zen and release. Frangipani soap meets and exceeds the goal of washing away the day. It surprisingly produces a rich later that is lightly scented and didn’t dry my already dry skin out more. Travelling in the North East for work lately, has my skin looking like orphan Annie.

Bath Bombs

I received the Passion Fruit and Monkey Farts. I like Passion Fruit it has a nice smell but my bae is Monkey Farts. It makes me feel like I’m in some expensive perfume shop and all things wonderful are in store. Both bombs do a great thing to your water by making it super soft and leave a nice amount of bubbles. While I was on my Springfield, MA trip I brought these along and looked forward to my baths each night.

Foaming Sugar Scrub

This is one of their newer products. Hiruna Soaps truly outdid themselves with this one. I received the Mermaid Tails and after a killer week where I thought I was going to punch a client, this was the highlight on a snowed in Friday night. The formula is thick and not watery but once it hits wet skin it melts and removes all my rough skin. This snow and cold weather isn’t friendly to my skin. After my bath, I couldn’t stop feeling my skin. It helped my homemade body butter soak in really well.

I only share products on my site that are truly dope. The Hiruna Box’s will launch soon so go and subscribe to their site HiRuna Island Soaps so you can be one of the 1st to be in the know.

Make 2017 your Year! Goal setting tips and advice

We are in the 2017 and it’s moving fast already. Just yesterday 2016 was pimp slapping folks and just not being nice. For me, 2016 was a year of L which was learning. I tried a lot of things and learned a lot. I believe even though things didn’t’ always feel great it made me greater.

In this video, I will share with you how to actually make goals that will become reality and some helpful tips on making 2017 your year. Years ago a mentor told me  “If you fail to plan you plan to fail”.  This notion really stuck with me over the years as I noticed the times I made actionable goals I typically achieved my goal.
