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.

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

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.
