BECCA Cosmetics #BECCAsummerchic Preview



Hey guys! So last week I had the awesome chance to attend an exclusive Becca Cosmetics #summerchic preview of their latest products courtesy of Danielle from The Style and Beauty Doctor.  Because of her, I’m such a huge fan of this brand. What makes this brand stand out from other beauty lines is the fact that it has products for ALL skin tones and skin types. Got oily skin? There’s the EverMatte Shine Proof Foundation or the EverMatte Poreless Priming Perfector which both help to eliminate an overly oily face. There’s also the Radiant Skin line that can give you that dewy J-Lo glow. Now onto the event!

Easy Summer Natural Protective Hairstyles


Hey guys! So for the past few weeks I’ve been in a hair rut. I was getting tired of my wash-n-go’s but still wanted to have a cute style with minimum effort. Then I was floored when I spotted Keri Hilson with these two SIMPLE waist length cornrows. Now of course, this style isn’t ground-breaking, but it gave me that inspirational AHA moment! I thought it would make a great summer natural protective style, plus I finally got to use the last of my marley hair from my previous havanna twists.

The Little Black Dress


Happy Friday all! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve been writing. Truth is, I’ve been to the ER more times than I can count these past few weeks. Ugh, more on that at a later date. Anyway, you know Fridays are generally reserved for “Mamanista Fridays” but this week I had to switch it up…aka I had no one to take my pic…lol. Anyway, instead of following this week’s theme of styling a vest, I went with the theme of the little black dress.

With that said, if you really don’t want to go shopping for a brand new outfit, take a look at some of my independence day style inspirations. For this 4th of July, I’m sure you could go with the traditional theme of wearing red, white and blue, or you could get a little creative and show your country pride with independence day style accessories.

Mom Confessions: Getting My Sexy Style Back!


If you’re a mom(or even if you aren’t) I’m sure you’ve had those daunting moments when you just feel “unsexy.” Maybe you’ve gained weight, maybe you’re unhappy in life, maybe you’re just plain ol’ unhappy with yourself. Whatever the reason, it’s time to get out of that slump that can negatively affect other area of your life. For me, I noticed that my sexy, particularly my style, wasn’t quite up to par after going through a few of my style posts. Randomly I was going through a few old outfit posts from last year, and man, there’s a stark contrast to how I’m dressing now. Now one thing I’ve noticed about myself is that I’m lacking in creativity and have also become a little well, plain jane boring in my clothing. I don’t know if it’s age or what, but I feel like I’ve become matronly and quite frankly undesireabe. I’ve also given myself the excuse of “Well I am a mom.” I know. That shouldn’t be a reason to look homely or like I just plain don’t care.
