Queen of Hearts Look of the Day!

Hello, Dolls

I have been shopping from my makeup stash, (rediscovering products that I've had for a while, but don't use often) and I have fallen in love with the Coloured Raine: Queen of Hearts eyeshadow palette. The foil eyeshadows are so amazingly pigmented; and the shadows blend so effortlessly. I wondered why I haven't used it more. Most of the eyeshadows that I used in this look are from that palette. Here is a quick selfie pic of the look I did.

Concert OOTD!

Hello Dolls,

I attended a Trey Songz concert a week ago, the concert was everything!!! I'm a huge fan of Trey Songz; my sisters and I have to see him EVERY time he comes to town! I originally bought a black ruffle neck, off the shoulder jumpsuit to wear to the concert. It fitted smaller than I thought :-(
At the very last minute, I had to wear something I already had. Below is what I put together! I originally meant for this post to be a look of the day, but, I wasn't able to get decent pics of my makeup like I wanted. Outfit and makeup deets at the bottom.

OOTD! (Outfit of the Day)

Hello Dolls,

In between shopping for makeup and beauty products, I'm (always) shopping for clothes! I can never get enough of clothes shopping; and putting outfits together. Today, I'm wearing one of my favorite go to pieces as of late. It's the Asymmetric-Hem Poncho.

I really like ponchos, they give you enough room to move easily; and no one can tell if you've put on a few pounds because they flow and drape so nicely. The asymmetric-hem on this poncho gives it that extra dramatic flair without being over the top. I've dressed this poncho up by wearing it with a skirt and heels. Today, I chose to wear leggings with it to work; and a cami underneath. Outfit deets at the bottom!


-Poncho: NENE by NeNe Leakes Asymmetric-Hem Poncho in slate green from HSN
-Faux Leather leggings: Ashley Stewart
-Gold beaded sandals: Rainbow Clothing
-Jewelry: Vivi Jewelry, Avon and Fashion to Figure
-Lipstick: Cranberry by Wink and Pout

How to Unleash Your FIERCE as a Woman! (Book Review)

Hello Dolls,

I'm switching gears on my blog for just a bit...I have been on a women's empowerment journey for myself for a while now. As most people, I have goals and a vision for myself of where I want to be spiritually, financially, and career-wise; but, I also have a plan of where I want to be mentally and emotionally as a woman. . . a better woman. Along this journey (which is never ending), I've had the opportunity to discover some amazing women and women's empowerment organizations.


I have been following Taria Pritchett, a Women's Confidence Coach for at least six months now. I enjoy her newsletters, positive affirmations, and clarity worksheets. When she started announcing and promoting that she was coming out with her 1st book, I knew I had to have it! I couldn't wait to read further about her own journey to becoming a confident woman as well as glean any tips and suggestions she could offer. So, I was so honored that I had the awesome opportunity to r…

B.O.M.B. Makeup Haul! (Black Owned Makeup Businesses)

Hello Dolls,

I am back, after a long hiatus! Life has been life...unpredictable but enjoyable. Even though, I haven't been posting about my latest beauty musings, I still keep up with the beauty world. Here's a small collection of some of the things that I've purchased. As I was purchasing, I realized that all of the products that I bought are all from black owned makeup businesses! Most of them I found out about on Instagram or from recommendations.

If you didn't know, I'm a beauty and product junkie, and I will pretty much buy from anyone as long as I like the product, have a use for it, and if it's a decent price; but, I especially love to support black businesses, especially since there can be a shortage of them; and they often discontinue service for one reason or another. Read on for the details.
