Ever buy something on line and its final sale? If you’re anything like me, you’re scared because you’re not sure if it’s going to look good or fit right. But it’s too good of a deal to pass up and you take the chance. So you’ve been there before,huh? That’s me anytime Forever 21 has a bomb sale. Sometimes it’s a fail and other times I hit the jackpot. This post is about a win, which includes this Burgundy Lace Print Midi dress I scored for $8. Continue Reading »

I’ve been waiting on consistent cold weather, like a kid waits for Christmas. We’ve had a few cool days, but two days later it’s back in the high 60′s or low 70′s. I’m not really complaining , but it would be great to experience winter like weather for at least a month. Because this weather changes like the wind, I haven’t put away some of my summer clothes. I haven’t technically unloaded my cold weather items either. Not to mention, figuring out what to wear is a headache. I’m talking drama-filled, especially when it comes to work. Continue Reading »

It was almost two weeks ago, but I’m still reliving Tuskegee University’s Homecoming.  I celebrated my 10 year class reunion. It was such an awesome experience to go back to a place I called home for many years. Mother Tuskegee is so dear to my heart. The memories are unforgettable , the experience is invaluable , and the education is unmatched.  My time at Tuskegee really laid the foundation of my adult life and I’m grateful for every bit of it. Check out some of the new memories I created on my recent trip to Tuskegee, AL as I celebrated Tuskegee University’s 2016  Homecoming. #TUHC16 Continue Reading »

It’s Wednesday and I’m still in recovery mode after experiencing the best homecoming ever. I celebrated by 10 year class reunion at Tuskegee University over the weekend and I’m still paying for it.  I plan to give a complete recap really soon. In the meantime let’s talk work wear as I’m holding on by a thread this work week. Typically I stay away from all black looks because the color doesn’t show well on television, but from time to time I’ll inject the dark hue into my newsroom look. Here are two recent occasions where I slayed in all black at the work place.  Continue Reading »

It’s no secret, I love a sale. I really love deals and discounts. It excites me on a level that should probably be questioned. So imagine the foolery that went down when I walked into Sears, YES SEAR’S . The department store was having the largest sale ever. I literally lost my mind and almost all of my money. The deals were too sweet to walk away from. I’m talking dresses for as low as $3.99. I ended up trying on two baskets full of pieces, but I only walked out with five dresses on my first trip (yes, there was a 2nd trip). The best part is each dress is work-ready and office approved. I’ve already worn three of my fab finds so let’s take a look at each one starting with my favorite .

Over the past 10 months I’ve been working to perfect my makeup routine. I’m so proud of my progress. When I officially learn how to snatch this face , I’ll post pictures of just how much progress I’ve made. Despite my improvements I still have a long way to go before I’m really sculpting this face and winging out this eye like the pros.

In the meantime, I’m trying out products to determine what looks best on me and I’m having so much fun playing with eyeshadow. From high end to drug store brands I love them all.

Here’s my review of each palette starting with the newest one from Wet N Wild ‘s limited edition fall collection.
