Back from Londontown!




My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to London the 1st of December to check out the city and hang out with his best friend; it was amazing! The city of London has an old antique feel, but at the same time still reminded me of DC.

They're Omelet Cups made with Turkey Bacon, Onions, and Tomatos…sounds so yummy! I think these will make an amazing breakfast meal!

My New Vintage Cosmetic Bag

This is the make up bag that I've been traveling around with for the past 6 months or so...


Its functional and has been getting the job done, carrying my jewelry, perfume, and essential cosmetics around, but eh, I always thought it was so basic. Lucky for me, my mom cleaned out her closet and now I am rocking' this...

On A Friday Night...

Calm. Relaxing. Introspective. 


As I sip on some tea and listen to some Neosoul, those are words the first words that come to mind to describe my evening...

Gotta Love Good Music...Flower Child Music!

It's not quite neosoul, but its real soulful! One of my favorite local artists, Incwell, just debuted his latest LP, Whiskey & Flower Child Music, and its quite dope!

mmMm...I Got a Zum Bar!

Guess what I got while grocery shopping yesterday?! A Zum Bar! 

Zum Bar by Indigo Wild [$3.99]

Zum Bars are an all natural "ultra-mositurizing" soap, made with a goat's milk base, and are free of synthetic colorings and fragrances. Which mean's they're great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin! Personally, I am big on all natural products and products that aren't harass on the skin, so when I saw the Zum Bars and their natural ingredient lists, I was sold...

[Review] Salon Effects on Nails

A few weeks ago, I purchased the the Salon Effects kit by Sally Hansen from Ulta for $10 bux. I finally got to try them out and as excited as I was, my experience wasn't that pleasant.

Motivation in Music




Truth be told, I have not been my usual ambitious, million projects at once, superwomen self in a few months. I have felt quite unmotivated and just down right L-A-Z-Y!

New Lipcolor & I Love It!



When I spotted this Coral Shimmer color by Rimmel, I knew I had to have it! And when I finally grabbed it at Ulta, I knew it was a matter of time before I colored my lips with it. Well, today is the day!

It's A {Musical} Love Sign!

Everytime I shuffle my iPod, which is like every time I touch it, "Deserve U More" comes on! This song is speaking volumes to me right now!

Mmmmm...New Perfume!

L'eau D'issey Florale by Issey Miyake 
You can't tell me nuffin' right now, this stuff smells sooooo delicious! When I smelt it at the store a few weeks ago, I wasn't impressed, but after trying this sample that I have...omgoodness, I can't get enough!

Why I Love Neosoul!

We all get the basic raps and auto-tune on the radio, that's typically about f*cking b!tches, beating up someone, reppin' this gang, and other pointless violent and unproductive content. But Neosoul, wow, its just something about its purpose!

Neosoul music, more often than not, is feel-good music, about real issues and things that real people can relate to. I just really love it! When I first really started listening to Neosoul, it was about 2-3 years ago and it really helped me to regain my self-esteem, understand who I was, what I wanted, and how good life  can be!

Today Was A Bad Good Day...


Today was definitely one of those type of days for me, a good bad day. Unfortunately, a not too favorable situation transpired in the beginning of my day and consequently it had me feeling not too hot first thing in the morning. As the day progressed the situation that had me down didn't get too much better, but some how I managed to not let it consume me and allow some good in.

Pucker Up With Soft Kissable Lips

Yesterday, I exfoliated my lips and the results were fabulous! I used to exfoliate my lips pretty regularly, but I fell out of the habit, but after the results from yesterday I have added it to my regimen.

When I used to exfoliate my lips, I used sugar and honey, simple. But after viewing this video on Ambrosia's YouTube channel, I decided to give her method a try...container and all!
