Let's Talk Self Care!

𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐲, 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚 𝐥𝐮𝐱𝐮𝐫𝐲” ⁣Unknown⁣
I’ll admit that life gets busy, and it can be hard to take some time for yourself. Here are two self care tips that I’ve been enjoying, and they don’t require a lot of time. 
⭐️Enjoy nature: I have to take a ride every weekend (mask worn, and I practice proper social distancing) to get some fresh air. I like to ride to a local beach in my area, sit on the bench, and watch the water. It’s so calming, and being outside gives me enhanced clarity. I can think clearer. When I can’t do that, a ride out in my car, playing my fave songs is just as relaxing. ⁣ ⁣ ⭐️Gratitude Journal: During the month, I write down everything that went well (big and small). At the end of the year, I can look back on everything that went well for me in the year! This helps me to practice gratitude, and appreciate my blessings more. This is helpful when I get an inkling of envy or start comparing myself to someone e…

Casual Style OOTD!

Hello, Dolls
How is everyone?
I'm well. It has been a very long week for me. All this week, I've been wearing simple, but comfortable and casual looks to work. There are several reasons why: The first is because it's hot! The temps in Maryland are in the high 90's, and the humidity makes it feel like it's 100 degrees or more! The second is because my job has started doing Curbside service this week; so, I wanted to dress as comfortable as I can being that I'm going back and forth to service customers.
This outfit is one of the looks that I wore this week. The jumpsuit is a fashion oldie but a goody; I love it! It's so comfortable! I decided to add some sass to it by adding the tassel earrings; and I love a good pair of shades. I don't go anywhere without my sunglasses! Outfit deets are listed below!

Summer Favorites in Skincare, Makeup + Accesories!

Summer is finally here! I've been looking forward to summer since spring time. I have been on a clothing and accessory craze, while choosing a minimalist approach to makeup. I'll explain why. Here is my short list and mini review of a few items that I've been loving. 
Mobile Oasis-Oat & Black Soap I'm a product junkie when it comes to skin care because I'm always searching for a cleanser to prevent and treat my adult acne. No matter what I try, I keep coming back to African Black soap. I noticed that when I use it, my breakouts are minimal. Plus, an added benefit is that it's not drying on the skin; and over time, it lightens acne scarring. I bought this liquid Black Soap from Mobile Oasis, not only am I impressed with the skin results, I'm also impressed with the formula and the generous amount in the bottle. It's $12 for a 16 oz bottle.
Sephora Lip Stains Because of the pandemic, I have developed a minimalist approach to makeup. The reason being is…

What I've Been Up To + Quarantine Reflections!

Hello, Dolls

How is everyone? I hope everyone is safe and doing well during this time. I know it's been months since I've posted. I've been doing well. I've been maintaining during this time. 
I was off work for a while because of the pandemic, and then I resumed work with teleworking. Now, I'm back at "work work", inside the branch. I'm getting used to going out of my home every day, trying to adjust to this new normal-while still trying to enjoy life.
In quarantine, I had so many high hopes for productivity. I said I was going to do this, that, and the other. That kinda happened, I got some things done! The majority of things didn't go as planned. 
A lot of it had to do with my mood, my moods where everywhere; so, I decided that I just wanted to work on my mental health (staying at home can do a job on your mind). I had a lot of reflective time, and I learned a few things about myself during that time. I'll share a few of my reflective thoughts…

Hello, Dolls

My Winter Faves in Beauty, Skin Care, and Accessories!

Hello, Dolls

Here are my latest winter favorites that I've been loving and using consistently!

Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser:


I got this deluxe sample in one of my Ipsy bags; I took it with me on my last trip since it's the perfect size for my carry on. I still have adult acne, and the occasional flare ups. In just my first day of using this cleanser, it dried out my acne and eliminated several whiteheads that I had. I'm impressed with how quickly it works, and I plan on buying the full size. I'm happy with my African Black soap cleanser; but, I plan to use this cleanser when I have acne, or feel a breakout coming.

The Balm Batter Up Eyeshadow Sticks:





One of my beauty goals is to wear eyeshadow daily; on some days, I don't have time to get my brushes out, apply primer, apply shadow, blend and etc. These shadow sticks eliminate those steps; all I do is glide it on my lids and go! An added benefit is that they have a built in primer, and they double as an eyeliner! T…

Vintage Glam! OOTN (Outfit of the Night)

Hello, Glamour Dolls

Can you believe it's 2020?! How is this year starting off for you? 2020 started off rocky for me; I was in a funk for a little while. With the help of rest, alone time, and determination, I was able to snap out of it. When I'm in a funk, my wardrobe is basic, just a top and pants. No makeup or accessories, just plain. That's why I'm really excited about this outfit of the night because it was the best I had looked in a while lol.

I love accessories; so I loved adding the faux fur collar and hat (it was even better that they matched). My newest accessory obsession is brooches; I wanted to add some sparkle to this outfit, so, I added the brooch. It came out to be a vintage glam vibe! I learned that if you can't decide on a necklace, add a faux fur scarf; it will elevate your outfit from ordinary to chic. Plus, it will keep you warm! All the outfit deets and the direct purchasing links are at the bottom!
