Sunday FOTD- Maybelline Soda Pop palette Review

Happy Monday!

So I’ve had this palette in my stash for a while but I’ve made a promise to myself to start using the shit I have and stop buying new shit lol.

In short, this pallet I’ll give a 7.5. Reason being that the colors just don’t pop for me. Before you ask, I did everything I’ve known to practice in order to make the colors pop. I sprayed my brush, used concealer, patted it on not swiped it on and still the results remained dull to me.

Colors I used: Cherry on Top, Soda Pop, Soda Fizz

Foundation: Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage

Lipstick: Milani Matte (Gold tube) Lipstick “Natural Chic”

Highlight: Milani

This was my first look which is a fail to me because I just don’t think the white eyeliner fit with this look, plus I had the way I have this “dead eyes” look.

I canceled it out with black eyeliner and loved the results (excuse the quality of the pics I used the front face camera).

Have you tried this eyeshadow palette yet? If so, how do you rate?

Thanks for reading.

Carbon Coco Teeth Whitening Review

Hey peeps,

So a few months back this company reached out to me wanting to send me their teeth whitening kit to review. After briefly looking at some YouTube reviews & getting mixed results I decided try it. My son & I both tried it as a matter of fact, I’m only posting my results though! I found this product to be easy to use and it’s semi-messy depending on the precautions you take with the space you’re using this product on. The charcoal spreads quickly on your teeth once you get it on your teeth (don’t swallow this product, not even a little bit). After about 5 minutes I rinsed my mouth out and used the toothpaste for about 2 minutes.

I used this product for 2 weeks, I must say that I do see a difference in the color of my teeth. I tend to eat a lot of dishes made with curry so it has the potential to stain my teeth. I would recommend this product, I don’t buy teeth whitening kits, I do buy toothpaste with it in it.

The toothbrush they send with it broke so I used one the dentist gave me.

If you haven’t tried a teeth whitening kit yet, I don’t think it would hurt to give it a try. Should this company reach out to you to try this product, I think it’s worth the test. It’s easy to use, a fast process and portable!! You can check out Coco Carbon products HERE!! SMILE!!

Clairol Root Touch Up via Influenster review

*sample release*

I can remember the day I spied the enemy within my hairline, that day cookies and cream became my favorite ice cream flavor lol. Nah, but seriously, what does getting grey hair really mean tho? It definitely doesn’t mean you’re about to die, it just means you’re about to start buying some hair dye lol!!

I wanna say it has been within the last 5 years that I have been dyeing the front of my hairline, it is the only place that’s going grey for now. When I dye my hair I normally use the Dark & Lovely “natural black” color which lasts me about 6 weeks.

When Influenster invited me to review the Clairol Root Touch Up hair product I was intrigued and up for the challenge. This product is pretty much a “quick fix” hair product and I recommend this for people who are on-the-go a lot because it’s an easy carry around. It looks like an eyeshadow pallet honestly.

If you don’t want to be bothered with the messy dye all over your hands, clothes or sink then this is your girl…. it’s so user friendly you can do it with your eyes closed.

Here are my results



It applies just like putting on eyeshadow, the formula is a powder substance and covers the grey instantly!! The cons to this is that it’s not long lasting and you should expect transfer while putting on shirts over your head as well as transfer to your pillow.

I will definitely use this in between dyeing sessions!!

Have you started to grey in your hairline? If so, what do you use as a Root Touch Up?

The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen in Orlando Florida

Y’all, don’t ask me why don’t I just move to Orlando… I KNOW I’m always there those are the facts lol!!

Honestly, it’s just like my feelings toward NYC, it will always have a special place in my heart. There isn’t a state in the world that I’ll live visiting more than I love visiting NY. Hence, is why I love going to Orlando (which is an hour south away from where I live). I just love the vibe I feel when I’m in Orlando–things to do, people busy doing something. However, traffic and I have a hate-hate relationship and where I live now has a little traffic but not enough for me to hate driving out here.

So yesterday the Mr. and I (it was my idea FYI lol) decided to venture into City Walk to eat at the Toothsome restaurant. It was everything I saw on the website and I just knew that our first visit would be the prelude to many more trips. I do want to make you aware that it is best to visit this Attraction Park for this restaurant AFTER 6pm in case you don’t want to pay $20 for parking!! The parking attendant let me know that since we told her we were just going to that restaurant.

The architecture of the building is a Steampunk theme and the employees are dressed in their Steampunk finest attire.

The prices are on the pricey side, but considering where it’s located; it’s to be expected. On the lower level when you walk in, you will see the finest candies and chocolates, macaroons and desserts and souvenirs area. On the other side of the first floor is the eating area equipped with booths and tables. You can retreat to the upstairs area by stairs or elevator.

Eating area upstairs is where we ate

The menu

I have to say that I wasn’t that impressed with the entree’s on the menu, I felt like the dessert choices were more enticing. The choices were pretty common.

I decided on having the Southern Fried Chicken BLT (it was too crispy for my liking but not terrible).

My honey is a Mac N Cheese man so he got the Shrimp and Lump Crab Mac n Cheese! I was instantly jealous that I made the wrong choice– but trust that he shared!!

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to devour one of their milkshakes or cakes, neither of us had room for it. I am dedicating myself to going back there empty stomached so I can treat myself to dessert!!

Even though I wasn’t wow’d by the entree options I am looking forward to going back for dessert so stay tuned for that post and thanks for reading!! Cheers!!

Here’s my makeup look that I wore

Happy Valentine’s Day

Even though I posted a Valentine’s Day look (which you can check out HERE), I had time yesterday for y’all!!

I was actually doing an upcoming lip swatch video and decided to extend the look to my blog.

Which lip color do you prefer?

Whether you’re in a relationship or not for Valentine’s Day , treat yo self!!
