Way Back Wednesday #5- Revlon

*High five for ya girl keeping up with the WBW posts!!!

So back in 2013, Revlon (a brand I don’t normally purchase polishes from) released a set of scented polishes. When I think of scented polishes I remember growing up playing with toy nail polish sets, which smelled like candy.

Well Revlon came out with their adult version lol and it was a hit!! I found myself running behind all the blog posts relating that it’s been spotted. There I was going to and fro all the drugstores for my next hit of lacquer lol.

Remember these?

I recently saw these in a Kmart clearance bin, I didn’t swipe because I remember that a few of these tend to have an overwhelming scent. Loved the formula though!!

Thanks for reading!!

Way Back Wednesday #4- Duck

The winner for #4 episode of Way Back Wednesday is the spawn from a comical “reality” show Duck Dynasty. Say what you want but I enjoyed watching this show. The wit of the brothers, wives, parents and kids just put me in a happy place to see a family enjoying each other.

One day prancing through Walmart clearance aisle I spotted these polishes, never knew they even existed until that moment. I did know that they had other promotional items like cups and swamp themed placemats and such, but what a pleasant surprise to see polish! I was there for it!! These released back in 2014.

I like the glitter based formula, had zero problems with the application. If these polishes was just a trial run, they should have made more for a marathon. I hope my thoughts convey to you that I’d buy more if produced lol.

Did you see these in Walmart? Better yet, did you ever watch the show?

Colourpop Yes, Please! Swatches 


Yes, please and thank you!! 

I finally got my hands on @colourpopcosmetics Yes, Please! palette since restock last week. I feel like I’m sounding like a looped video on Snapchat when I say that these colors are my every day go to colors–it bears repeating tho lol. You’ll see from the swatches below how pigmented these colors are. So now this is going to be my second go-to palette for the everyday colors I like to wear to work. 

If you own any of CP’s super shock shadows you will have already witnessed how smooth they are. My first go to palette is Juvia’s Place Nubian 1 palette. These colors are woc friendly IMO.

Did you pick up this collection gem?

Beauty Blogger Tag

I know y’all have noticed that my posts have been so dry lately, it’s safe to say that I’ve been in a blogging slump. Some days I’m so amped about posting when I think of ideas for a blog post, but then when I actually sit down to type it out I feel then it’s not a worthy post. 

So today I said you know what, this is your blog hello did you forget? Any post I put my mind to is better than letting it fall by the wayside. 

Allow me to entertain you through this beauty blogger tag I found on Google…..

Lipstick or lip gloss? -Lipstick all day everyday, matte if ya got it!!

Are you a morning person or a night person? -Morning! I woke up at the crack of the sun’s ass! At night I fall asleep so early, I literally have to force myself to stay awake!


Name your three favourite tv shows? â€“ Cake/Cupcake Wars, The King Of Queens, The Golden Girls

Which makeup brand is your favourite? Why? – Maybelline New York, I feel like with their shade range THEY GET IT!! 

The best makeup product discovery of the year 2017 so far? -I’ve religiously been doing my eyes FIRST for a month or two and I see the difference with my struggle with under eye creasing & my dark circle bleeding through my foundation. It has stopped my eyeliner from running down & my mascara when I’d blink.


The biggest makeup product flop so far this year? – Cant think of any so that’s a good thing!

Your favourite snack? – strawberry yogurt with granola bits.

If you had the possibility to change something in the world. What would that be? – The way society finds a way to put people into this “have & have not” category. A lot of people spend their lives trying to fit into a world where people are always promoting “be yourself”. But when you do your own thing, they want to label you; be it based on career, financial status, lifestyle or looks. *steps off soap box* lol.

Name three beauty products everyone should own?– Maybelline Matte +Poreless foundation, NYX Matte black liquid eyeliner, Juvia’s Place Nubian 1 palette (I just told y’all my every day go to products).


Name three things you love about yourself? -lol don’t you just love answering this question! I love that I’m assertive. I love that I can change what I don’t like about myself & I love that I am always evolving.

I enjoyed doing this post. What question in this post did you like the most? Please tag me if you decide to do this post on your blog.

The Makeup Show Orlando 

Yes it was that time again last weekend. If you missed it, you missed a good one. However, you can catch another one that’ll be coming to a city near you or in your city. Of course I attended the one that was in a city near and dear to me! I received my blogger press pass & made my way up in there!

I like the brands that participated this year, although I was disappointed that a few I hoped to see didn’t participate this year. 

Use this link to my IG page to see a little slideshow featuring scenes from TMSO here.

Here are the items I received in my blogger bag


Some scenes from the floor

We started off TMSO hearing from the coolest down to the earth makeup artist James Vincent. He gave us a history of he started from the bottom now he’s here……

Here’s a swatch of a lippie I bought from Blot Beauty Cosmetics. I hadn’t heard of this brand until I saw their booth at TMSO. This color is called Sort.

Wish List Wednesday 

Hey y’all, welcome back to Wish List Wednesday where all your wishes are welcome, I hope they come true one day.

But back to reality, here’s what’s on my wish list this week….

A trip to Abu Dhabi, it looks so beautiful.


A 7 series BMW in black, it has always been my favorite car. I have a 2015 Altima and the body style resembles this style that’s why I like it so much. Some of the features in my car are the same features that BMW have.

Christian Louboutin new nail polish collection, I love how it’s so colorful.

Nike Air Max 1 X Atmos collab. These are actually an attainable item. This sneaker released yearsssss ago and I missed it then! I’m kinda determined not to miss the release this month but I won’t be too bummed if I don’t get them. 

A blank check from someone rich…. with this blank check I’ll do the right thing…..whatever that is lol…

What’s on your wish list?
