Cera was nice enough to provide waxing during the party! I received an eyebrow wax and an Intern John “Vixen wax” (Brazilian Wax). Continue reading Cera Wax Studio. Home of the Ouch-less Wax!
However, I have not worn makeup since my trip to Center for Plastic Surgery in Annandale, VA. When I walked out of the building I felt like my skin had new life!
Here’s what happened:
I opted for the Fire & Ice Facial. Baby, let me tell you, CPS exceeded all of my expectations! The Fire & Ice Facial is a medical grade facial, just a step below a chemical peel.This facial is great for anyone who battles acne or other skin ailments. My aesthetician , Marily Salls was amazing!’First they start off with the fire mask, which resurfaces your face by removing old, dry skin. It has a warming, tingling sensation and smelled like cookies to me! Next they apply the soothing ice mask. This mask uses hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, green tree extract, and peppermint to hydrate the skin and calm it down.At the end of my session I saw instant results! My complexion has been evened and brightened!I highly recommend this facial. The procedure goes for $150.00 and is well worth the money.Since this treatment I have been following up with CPS’s recommended skincare regimen products and boy do I feel beautiful! I use a retinol eye cream, a super serum, cooling serum and a great SPF!
I was super happy to have the opportunity to use Honeybee Gardens Cosmetics. They are an ALL natural, ALL organic line of makeup and skincare. Everything is tested to certify that all of the ingredients are in fact all natural and organic. This is perfect for anyone with skin allergies!
Beauty starts within! You have to mindful of what makeup is seeping through your pores. Honeybee Garden’s foundation gave me full coverage with a glow. Natural but still BEAT! The lip liner was smooth and gave me a beauty pink color. The lip gloss and it’s yummy scent topped it off for a long lasting gloss!
Please check out Honeybee Garden Cosmetics and let me know if you love it!
1. If They’re Rude…LEAVE the store
Too many times, the African American community’s insecurities are capitalized on without any respect for the Black dollar. We all know that many people of color purchase weave . I suggest only buying products from a place that respects your buying power!
2. Ask Them to Take the Hair Out of the Package.
You need to feel how the hair flows through your fingers. Can you easily run your fingers from root to tip? Does it tangle when you shake it? If the hair doesn’t flow theres a chance the cuticles are running in different directions, thus limiting the shelf life of the hair extensions. You’ll probably get a good 2.5 weeks out of it at most. Also, if it tangles just from shaking it, you can only imagine what it going to do on the back of your head.
3. Find Natural Light to View the Hair
Hair stores have horrible lighting. The fluorescent lighting makes the hair look a different color when it would seem in the sunlight. I suggest holding the hair up to a window or somewhere that you can see the hair exactly how it is. Hair stores seldom have a return policy so check everything before buying.
4. Check Online First
5. Watch The Weave Whisperer!

Being a beauty blogger can be a messy job! Between my bathroom sink and my bath tub I have my work cut out for me. I have so many hair and makeup products that I use that it gets crazy!
I recently made the switch to Viva® Vantage®! During my 7-Day Switch Up, I used Viva® Vantage® towels to do all of my cleaning! After 7 days I still have lots of towels left because the Stretchy-Strength of Viva® Vantage® made the towels very durable! Perfect for my large bathroom beauty disasters!
Here are some beauty cleaning tips!
- Clean you counter as soon as makeup hits it!
You don’t want the product to get hard or sink into the surface of the counter. I simply wet a Viva® Vantage® towel with water and give my counter a few swipes.

In this episode we tackle having black hair at work. Although hair should all be viewed the same, lots of Black women feel pressured to submit to a European aesthetic at work. That burns my biscuits! To me that says “shut up, sit down, be silent and look like us”. I stopped chemically straightening my hair after 2002. We all look different and I believe our differences should be accepted and celebrated!
Then, we move into having a confidence I believe every women should have! It’s called Pretty Girl Syndrome. A mindset of positive thinking! But beware, you must have inner beauty and confidence to pull this off. Pretty Girl Syndrome is just a phrase for believing in the beauty that God gave you. And yes, all women posses beauty!
I was fatty after drinking and eating like a mad man on vacation in VA Beach and Jamaica. I was on vacay and was absolutely going to indulge! I came home with a few extra pounds. We all know I’m single and ain’t got time for anything but a flat stomach.
I decided to give Fit Tea a try! I usually drink Dieter’s Tea aka POOP tea and that works wonders. But I wanted to try something all-natural and safe. I had the 14-Day detox and I drank it every morning instead of my beloved Dunkin Donuts coffee.
I’m my harshest critic but I think I lost a nice amount of weight using Fit Tea. During my detox I exercised 3-5 times a week and drank plenty of water. Post-detox I am drinking my daily “Green” drink that I blend in my Nutribullet.
If you would like to try out Fit Tea please visit their website. The 14-day detox retails for $25.00 and they ship internationally. Happy detoxing!
