Tag: The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty

I found this Tag all over blogs and YouTube so I decided to join in! It actually made me look at my makeup collection in a totally different light. SO let's get started shall we:

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
  The most inexpensive beauty item I own would be my E.l.f. smudge brush that cost $!. My most expensive product would be my Guerlain Terracotta bronzer in shade #8 that cost $50, it took a long time for me to hand over my debt card to the cashier!

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? 
The beauty products that I have a love/hate relationship with are bronzers. When I can find one it's heaven but it's the finding part that is truly difficult. Being that I am dark skinned most bronzers stop at shades way too light.

Buffalo Exchange in The District

Since I am currently in the process of moving into my new apartment, I decided to go through my closet and purge all the stuff I haven't touched in the past year. I created a donate and throw away pile but I just found out there is a Buffalo Exchange that opened last week in the district. In high school I actually worked in a teen resale store, so I am usually pretty good about picking things they would take.  I love resale stores because they are a great stop before going to the goodwill and a quick way to keep your closet under control and getting some cash in your pocket. For people who have the buy one, throw one out rule this is a great place to go.

Work FOTD (Face of the Day)


For my internship this summer, my company allows casual Fridays. So I decided that I would show you my usual work face since I would spend as much time this morning putting together a business casual outfit. I will provide a complete list of the products I used after the pictures.

Top 10 Beginner Must-Haves: Part II

Part II:

The Original Naked Palette

6. Urban Decay Naked palette: This is the one and only eyeshadow palette you will ever need. Whether a beginner or a makeup lover, this is one product that lives up to its hype. The palette has 12 full sized eyeshadows, an eyeshadow primer  and a brush so all you really need is mascara and an eyeliner and you're set. I searched high and low for this palette for 4 weeks straight because it has all the neutral colors you could ever need. I took this palette on vacation twice and use it for 2 weeks straight and came up with a ton of looks. Go on YouTube, google, temptalia, hell anywhere and you can find some girl using this palette. The price tag might sound expensive but considering each Urban Decay eyeshadow is $18 and you get 12 plus a brush and primer $48 is WAY better than the $250+ it's worth.
Available at: Sephora, Urbandecay.com and ulta

Cheap Thrills and Big Deals!

Cheap Thrills, Big Deals

I decided to create a series called Cheap Thrills and Big Deals! The series will go over products that have small price tags but score big beauty points with me. When you're in college you want to always look but best but you don't want to go broke doing it. So once a week I will introduce one of my cheap thrill, big deal items. I hope you enjoy and if you have any in your stash leave me a comment below!

I'm back!!!!!!

After a long vacation from blogging, I decided that I am coming back in full force! When I stopped blogging I kept looking for dark skinned college aged bloggers and I realized I was just being lazy! Instead of getting off my butt and taking pictures of the things I love I wanted another girl to do it. So I have decided that I will update and answer questions from everything to nude lipsticks to the best drugstore foundations. My natural thick hair and eclectic fashion sense will also be on display, including the hair and fashion of others. It's hard out there for a chocolate beauty in the fashion world and I want to join the other bloggers helping other girls out there!
