January 2017 Must- Have box from POPSUGAR

POPSUGAR

Well what can I say? Like always POPSUGAR knocks it out of the park with their monthly subscription box and this month in no different. Okay….I lied it just keeps getting better. I didn’t think that they could out do the holiday season, but POPSUGAR has done what many retailers fail to do after the holidays. KEEP YOUR INTEREST! Yes! I know that it may sound a bit odd. I mean most people don’t want to talk about shopping after the holiday season and they surely don’t have a desire to spend money. Let me explain what I mean. What do you think about after the holidays? If you are like most of us you are talking about renewing yourself, getting healthy, and thinking positive and POPSUGAR to a task that most of us star out with good intentions, but by the end of month have given up and start counting the days to the next “New Year”.

Everything in the January 2017 Box was amazing! Truly. If you join me on Snapchat when I opened the January box you know what I mean. I don’t think that I used the words OMG! OH WOW! and look more when opening up anything. In a way it was better than that Christmas gift that you really didn’t want.

GoldFaden MD- Fresh A Peel Multi-acid Resurfacing Peel: Have you ever started reading about a product and the someone that you know makes a comment like “ That sounds great” and runs off with it. My Mom literally ran off to the bathroom to give it a try and came back glowing. Enough said.

May Design- Desk Calendar & Notecard: How much to do I love this product? So much so that I have it in my writing area area…..we bloggers have deadlines you know.?

Daily Concepts- Your Hair Wrap Towel: It reusable, it helps with flyaways and frizzy harir….Do I need to say more?

Manduka- eQua Mat Towel Playa: Do you have fitness goasl for 2017? If so, you need this in your life. Trust me.

SOURCEBOOKS Inc.- Instant Happy Notes: What a better way to start of the New Year than with some positive thoughts.

Dean & Deulca- Peppermint Loose Leaf Tea: This is the second item that my Mom just grabbed and ran with after I shared it with her. She loves peppermint tea. The two cups that I had were amazing.

*Glade- N3 Free- Coconut and Beach Woods Candle: This was a special gift and I think that POPSUGAR must have secretly known that I am a candle lover. Needless to say this candle was gone within two days….seriously. I even when out and purchased another one.

True Beauty Tuesday: Law of Nature Cosmetics

Law of Nature Cosmetics

I am sure excited that I found another cosmetic brand that offers gluten-free products with women of color in mind! Let me introduce you to  Law of Nature Cosmetics. I always visit the “about” section on every website that I visit to get their backstory. Just a few sentences in I must admit that I was pleasantly amazed at their mission. I know that some beauty lovers only want to look great, but I personally believe that one should be able to look great without causing harm to themselves due to toxic ingredients in their beauty products.

After reading the story of Jasmine Rose, the founder I quickly added Law of Cosmetics to my must buy list. Sadly, like to many women I too have had a loved one with Breast Cancer and I applaud Ms. Rose for reaching safe natural ways for women to showcase their beauty without having to subject themselves to harsh chemicals.

The cosmetic line offers several products that  are not only gluten free, but vegan, talc free, paraben free, bismuth free, and while you may not think “Who cares…..why does that matter?” I invite to research some of your favorite brands (several of which are  targeted to women of color) and health issues related to chemicals used in those products and you will know why it truly matters. Like I said I have already added several of Law of Cosmetics items to my must buy list. Want to see what I picked? Visit me on our sister site Loving Hue & Your Style… Right now.

Web Window Shopping: The Empire Inspired Collection at Torrid

Let me just tell you that I am madly in love with the The Empire Inspired Collection at Torrid

 

 

screen-shot-2016-10-05-at-3-32-07-pmWhen I stumbled upon the collection I was so happy to see that a company celebrating curvy women with all the glam and style they deserve. Empire has to be one of the most talked about shows on television since its Fall 2016 return and for good cause.  Even if you don’t watch the show (which will probably baffle many) the inner fashionista in you will find it hard to deny picking up a piece or two….let’s be real…it will be hard not to shop the  entire collection. This  inspired collection truly embraces the leading ladies of the show and their power. Kudos Torrid job well done!

True Beauty Tuesday: “Choose Love” campaign

Love is in the air in more ways than one. Singer Ciara recently announced on social media that she is not only the newest global ambassador for Revlon, but she will also be the face of their “Choose Love” campaign. Personally, I think she will be a great spokesperson especially for the “Choose Love” campaign. The singer has been living a life that reminds me of a fairytale. Earlier this year she wed Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson after courtship that would melt just about anyone.

The “Choose Love” campaign is like nothing I have ever seen before in a good way. It seems that to often beauty and style brands try to “sell” you on what you need to fix about yourself to attract the perfect mate and how their products can save the day, and while I know the goal of every brand is to create revenue this campaign reminds you to look take time to love yourself first. On their website they offer several ways to do so, and yes it does involve make-up, but not in the way that you think.  After watching the video  and reading the Revlon Love Test Instructions.

I realized something that most women do or should I say don’t do…. and that is take care or love themselves EVERY day first. Women often place everyone above themselves until they sadly realize that they have taken themselves off the list of things to take care. Having  grown up in the south I have always heard that you can’t love anyone else until you can love yourself so I invite you to join me for one week and take the Revlon love test. Will you “Choose Love”?

True Beauty Tuesday:Khoudia Diop

 

When I originally started True Beauty Tuesday a few years back I wanted to to be more that just beauty products (there is nothing wrong with that), but like I have always said my goal is to celebrate, educate, and empower HUE to HUE.

There are times in your life when you come across a beauty so amazing to the eye that you just wan to cry. It happened for me when I say Khoudia Diop. Never in my life have I seen a woman hold such beauty. NEVER. Her melanin skin makes me value my skin tone even more than ever and while I am sure she has experienced her fair share of rude people I want to take this moment to send nothing but love to her.Screen Shot 2016-10-05 at 4.33.45 PM.png

True Beauty Tuesday: The Taraji P. Henson collection

True Beauty Tuesday is back! To kick things off I wanted to showcase a beauty collection that did so well that a few of the products sold out right after the launch. Of course I am talking about none other than Taraji P. Henson’s collection for MAC cosmetics. Although I have not tried the collection for myself I must say the collection grabbed my attention because it makes beauty simple and would personally use the shades in there collection year round. I love the the beautyistas that can work magic with shading and contouring, however I am not one of those gals. I just can’t work that magic. Taraji’s line looks so easy to use that I buy it I mean who doesn’t want to be fierce and fab like Cookie?
