Influenster Oasis Voxbox 

*sample, items were sent in exchange for my honest review*.

I swear I feel like I’ve made it y’all when Influenster sends me a email saying I’m in the next campaign lol! I get so excited to see what’s coming my way, I haven’t gotten one so far that I didn’t like. I love when I get full size products too y’all like yaaaaas I have arrived!!

So this Voxbox was filled with snacks & smell goods this time. Look what I got…

I’ve been sent the Vera Wang perfume samples before in another Voxbox and I enjoyed them. The scents are strong but feminine and they lasts good while. At work my coworkers said they knew I had left the bathroom because of my perfume (glad it wasn’t cause of a bad smell right lol).

When filling out the criteria list for this Voxbox I was crossing my fingers when choosing the foundation shade, in hopes I done good. The shade I chose is Tawny. This foundation is currently in drugstores so shout out to me for my price of FREE.99!!

Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir foundation

I’m still a little iffy about the shade, I’m going to do my best to make it work, however I think it’s not my shade. Stay tuned for a FOTD post.
The Welch’s fruit rolls and Aloha peanut butter bar I’ve had before and they’re a nice little snack you can enjoy at work (I did anyway).

The Eva•NYC Mane Magic smells sooooooo good and left my hair very moisturized. I received their products before and I enjoyed using their shampoo & conditioner.

So enough of me rambling about my Voxbox let me help you get with the program. If you’re not already a member of Influenster, you can join here. It’s best that you fill the profile out to the categories that most fit the products you’d like to receive. You should connect all your social media accounts so that you can complete the badges that will help you score more Voxboxes, thank me later!!

Thanks again Influenster 💋

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? – 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.



ME!

Territory Takedown

Y’all I’m coming out of left field with this post but watching Love & Hip Hop NY last night is what caused this urge to post. To be honest with you I don’t do ratchet tv, but that’s the only LHH series I watch of them all lol. What bought me to this post is a segment of it that touched a nerve with me.

The scene is of Bianca & Mariahlynn hashing out their feelings regarding their recent falling out….it was on the strength of Marialynn dropping dime on Bianca. Because of a shady hotel meetup which happened a few episodes ago between her and DJ Drewski, MariahLynn felt the need to tell his assistant slash girlfriend (lol)Skye. She & MariahLynn had become cool & quick friends.

*pic credits to vh1.com

Fast forward to how my nerve got struck… I don’t understand why people feel like you can’t be friends with someone they don’t get along with! Why not? I find it to be very selfish and controlling. I expect school kids to believe that, but adults? I thought by then we can form our own opinions based off of personal experience with that person. Not only that, but why does “loyalty” have to play a part in me not liking someone you don’t like? 

Please explain to me why a side has to be chosen? I especially didn’t like that MariahLynn gave in, denouncing Skye’s friendship. Listen, if I’m cool with someone you’re not cool with that’s just life. I wouldn’t ask you to accept it, like it, have a sleepover–none of that!! However, you would not in any way dictate who I can & cannot be friends with! 

So now look at that 🤔 Bianca has gotten her way, the contingency plan has been agreed upon!!! Isn’t that something!! So that’s how it works huh.. really?! 
Well I just hope that anyone who’s put in this situation, is strong enough to stand behind making mature decisions. Just because your friend is cool with someone you’re not, does it mean they’re going to plot against you (I’m not saying it can’t happen). You know, there are people who do know how to make sure they stay neutral. 

I know you’re probably thinking girl it ain’t that deep, it’s just “reality” tv but this is a real life situation that happens all the time! I’m speaking from experience of having been put in this situation before! I’m here to say…. Don’t feed territorial friends, if one person is controlling the friendship; that’s a dictatorship!!

I don’t know about y’all, but I want friends who’s going to tell me when I’m wrong, not enable me to be wrong & strong!!

What about your friends……..

How to deal with blogger online negativity 

When you read the title of this post I can bet that your remark will be “well it comes with the territory”, and you’re right. My intentions aren’t to deter you from that notion, it’s really my objective to give you an alternative way of dealing with it. Let’s face it since the Internet took the web by storm, a person’s true identity for some became a force of anonymity to be reckoned with! Online you can be who you are/who you want to be and who you don’t want to be exposed as…… We are living in a world where the internet and trolling are liable to skip hand in hand joyfully.

Don’t get me wrong, in no way am I saying that people don’t have the right to do it. I’m saying that as a blogger or someone who wants to showcase themselves as a brand online, you’re going to have to deal with opinions that’ll potentially support, oppose, harass & offend (among other things) your brand.

While I’m not usually bombarded with negativity online, I did recently experience quite a bit of negative comments on my YouTube channel. I don’t get negative comments on my blog like that but still, it happens.

Things to keep you up when negativity online tries to bring you down:

  • Keep in mind that you chose be in the limelight for social media. Take responsibility of your surroundings. As the saying goes “if you can’t take the heat”… You have choices……
  • Pick your battles wisely! By that I am speaking in terms of response. Think about it this way, would you argue with a dead person? No! The majority of the time the person commenting is under a fake profile, they’re page is private or they don’t have videos of themselves so why go toe to toe with a faceless troll? 
  • Armor yourself with the fact that it’s not about THEM it’s about YOU–keep it that way. It’s about you because it’s YOUR video/page, your belongings you’re talking about and it’s YOUR WAY OR NO WAY!
  • Use your filter options TO THE MAX!! Moderate your comments, BLOCK them like it’s nobody’s business!! If the comment doesn’t help you grow then it’s trying to stop you from growing!! Keep in mind that trolls don’t die just because one gets blocked, they multiply!! Keep blocking!!
  • Whatever you do, don’t take it personal.. Maybe they don’t mean to be mean, maybe they’re having a bad day or their life is in the shits for the moment and they’re looking for a target. Don’t buy tickets to someone else’s bad day!!
  • Remember you’re the one BRAVE enough to get on camera & upload it for the world to see! They’re only brave behind a fake account– you got the juice!!
  • Lastly, don’t cheat yourself, treat yourself. Take the bitter with something sweet, hey it worked for the Golden Girls lol


At the end of the day getting trolled is not the end of the world. They win when you stop posting, they win when their negativity changes you to act just like they do. Opinions are like a-holes, funny how a-holes are always talking i$h lol!!!




What are some ways you conquer dealing with negativity online? 




Have a great week and thanks for reading💋
