Best of Beauty 2017

I know I may be a little late to the party, but I had to get this video done to share my favorite beauty products for 2017. These are all of the items that really impressed me last year so the video is quite long! Grab a snack and a drink and revisit my 2017 beauty faves with me!

What were your standout beauty products of 2017?

Happy New Year!

As I’m writing this, it is the last day of 2017. For me 2017 was a rollercoaster, having many (many!) ups and downs. Among other things, I was blessed this year with the birth of my daughter, Chloe. But, I have to admit that I experienced the roughest periods of my life as well. That’s why I’m excited to be closing out 2017 and starting anew in 2018. I have faith that this year will be a year of bigger and better things for my family. 2017 taught me to appreciate all that I have been blessed with and really helped me to realize what really matters in life. I learned some hard lessons this year, but overall, I think that it has made me stronger.

With that being said, I am ready for 2018! I can’t wait to see the blessings that God has for my family! I feel like He was just getting us ready to be able to receive the abundance of blessings that are for us in 2018. I plan on making this upcoming year a great one and I hope you do too! Remember that our circumstances may be tough at times, but those tough times help shape us into who we are supposed to be.

Thanks for continuing to support me not only on this blog, but on all my social media channels (YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook). I may not have a large following, but I love that you all that have been around for years are still here and always have a kind word! Thank you for that. I know it may sound cliche, but you never know what someone may be going through, so kind words may be just what they need in that moment.

Here’s to an amazing 2018 for all of us! Happy New Year!

Current Bronzers In My Rotation

I know it may seem like brown girls don’t need bronzer, but I am here to tell you that we do! I’m using “need” loosely, but I personally feel like bronzers really help complete any look. If you wear foundation (especially medium to full coverage), bronzers help add that dimension and warmth back to your face so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing a mask. If you want to the bronzers that have been in heavy rotation for the past few months, keep reading!
