I struggled with my hair ever since I was a toddler. I’ve researched different trends to help efficiently manage my hair. Coconut oil kept popping up in the Google search feed.As I decided to try the Coconut oil trend, something magical happened a couple of weeks ago. I received a survey about my hair from Influenster. It felt as Influenster was reading my mind and knew about my hair struggles. Answering the survey honestly, I wrote out the issues I had with my hair. A few weeks later I received a complimentary box filled with L’oreal Ever Curl products.
- Hydra Charge Shampoo
- Hydra Charge Conditioner
- Sculpt and Firm Cream-Gel
If you’re a balling on a budget New York City resident, then HONEY, we have a lot in common.This past summer I acted like I was a teenager living underneath my mother roof. I was tapping into my savings to stay up with the latest events. I’ll admit I had a case of F.O.M.O. (fear of missing out).Fast forward to winter I found myself staying in more than usual just to save money and make ends meet.
It’s OFFICIALLY here 2017! A New Year, and we are experiencing a gritty snow storm in NYC.Time to bundle up in your cozy sweaters and Adore Me bras.While you’re bundling up for the winter weekend, do something different.Instead of doing the usual raiding your fridge and going on a Netflix binge, let’s have a different approach to how we’re spending our winter weekends. Instead of being a couch potato (which is ok every once in a while) do something that will keep your mind sharp.
Try to develop a new hobby or continue to flourish one. Pursuing a cool hobby is a great strategy to make your winter weekends eventful.The time spent on creating will be fun, and you wouldn’t feel like you wasted a whole day. You can paint, write poetry or short stories or open your mac book where you can learn how to do a DIY project or practice different makeup looks. If the DIY project or practicing exactly want the difference between a contour brush and a foundation brush is not up your alley, don’t worry there are endless opportunities online.
People everywhere are ready to break up with 2016 and start a new relationship with 2017.It makes common sense because January is considered to be one of the peak months for “cuffing season.”Before jumping into a new relationship your most likely, compiling your list of what made 2016 bad for you. Or you might be doing the opposite as I am, trying to highlight the accomplishments you achieved and hoping the year will continue with more success.
We all know financially men make more than women, although withholding the same place in a corporate setting. The unfortunate fact was drilled into my head when my former high school professor educated me. Gazing through the printout in front of me, at the harsh men vs. women statistics, it boiled my blood. I could not come to terms with the fact not only women are expected to do everything, at the end of the day we will just make less than our male coworker.
Given the facts of a sexist commercial work structure, many women drift off and decide to start their own business. Many women including myself have found ways to balance their jobs and personal lives seamlessly, remain high in the face of incredible challenges, and compete against even the toughest competitors.
For me to get in a holiday dancing spirit, I played “Sleigh Ride” by TLC. After belting out the lyrics,
Just hear those sleigh bells jing-a-ling
It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is fallin
And friends are calling you
I was pumped to go to my friend holiday party. For my holiday party makeup look, I decided to use GA-DE Cosmetics Fall 2016 collection for the reason of the perfect elements it has to create the holiday makeup go to look, the smokey eye.The selection included a basic matte eyeshadow palette with a range of warm earth tones mix with festive gray hues.First I used the lightest color in the kit on my eyelids.Then I worked the chocolate shadow into the light color and slightly above the lid creases.After that, I use the gray/black shade a little past the outer corner of the lids.I use the caramel tone eyeshadow to outline my bottom eyelashes to make my eyes pop.To blend the colors together, I used the second lightest shade and patted my eyelids repeatedly until each color looked like it was tied together.

The moment foodies wait for all year is finally here! I’m excited to get into my lace maxi dress, paired with velvet thigh-high boots and be welcome with a full plate of food.Before prepping to binge-eat a turkey, in the beginning of November I had what I would like to call a case of holiday dress stress .As I struck gold on the search for a lace maxi dress, I bumped into a problem.My beautiful lace maxi dress had a deep plunge.Usually, I would wear a silicone bra cutlet, and that will help solve my issue.On the other hand, every time I wore a silicone bra cutlet it will become nonsticky. Imagining myself in a house full of people and making a complete fool of myself, I refused to wear a silicone bra cutlet. Continue reading
Like most tech addicts I wake up from my bed, eyes halfway open and stretch my hand out searching for my phone. Once I retrieve it, I unlock the home page to tap on the cute ghost icon in front of a lemon hue backdrop. Once I enter the app I check a few people’s Snapchat stories; it’s honestly a great way to wake up.A morning filled with inspiration with my newsfeed filled with people shopping in the latest pop-up shops, visiting art galleries,rocking-out in concerts or even finding out what’s new on Netflix; Snapchat does have it all.
