    Tools to Help Blogging

    Starting a blog is really fun but it can also become difficult at times. I just started making time to use other tools to help promote and help my blog. Here are some of the tools that I have found to be useful. Graphic Design can help your blog by making your blog have a nicer theme and you can promote those pictures on social media. I have tried out Snappa and Canva and I like Snappa more because it’s cheaper in my opinion, easier to use since there are templates. Canva is priced based on your themes and I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers prefer using it. Snappa is…

    Iphone X Review

    Before the hate begins because Iphones are “overrated” and “expensive” let me just add I just switched over to Apple products last November. I’ve had Android phones for most of my life and recently bought my boyfriend’s Iphone 6 Plus because my phone’s memory sucked and my phone was really laggy. I had the Galaxy Grand Prime. Why I Needed A New Phone? My boyfriend’s Iphone 6 Plus was 4 years old and it still works, but I’ve dropped it twice on accident of course and half of the screen came off and now the whole screen can pop off. So yeah I needed a new phone, to say the…

    First Attempt on a Cut Crease makeup look

    Hey, guys, I was inspired from watching some makeup tutorials and I have been meaning to try this all summer. Finally got around to attempting a cut crease makeup look and here’s my tutorial on how I did it. All of the products I used are affordable and can be found at drugstores and makeup stores. I love and prefer vegan and cruelty-free brands. The first step of how I start doing my makeup is applying concealer under my eyes. I used Maybelline’s age rewind concealer and I’ve been using this brand of concealer for 4 years now. It can be found at Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, Ulta, and etc. The…

    Questions About Interracial Love and Relationships

    By Abina George I was so fortunate to meet another awesome blogger, Deanna Stilwell. Both of us happen to be in interracial couples. We decided to answer some questions so that people can better understand how and why we both ended up dating outside our race and tell our interracial stories. How did you meet your significant other? I am so ashamed of myself. We haven’t even admitted this to our families, so it’s been an overused tale. We tell everyone that we met in a coffee shop while the truth of the matter is that we met online. We are a product of online dating even though we both…

    Review on Forever 21 Foot Mask

    Back in May, I bought a foot mask from Forever21 and here’s my review. I had high hopes for this foot mask because my feet are always sore from having to wear heels and flats for work. I just wanted to find something that would help relieve the pain I get from walking after work. Sure enough, this foot mask was super simple. The steps were to put my every foot into a mask which was a bag that had two layers of the product which smelled like apple. It was similar to a sheet mask, but in the form of bags to fit your feet. You leave the mask…

    Beauty on a Budget: My New Purse !

    This is going to be a new series on my blog, where I share my beauty finds that are of course on a budget! Starting with as the title suggests my brand new bougie purse. I have been planning to buy a new purse for myself since starting my new job as a little reward, but also because I’ve never been able to afford a nice quality purse in the past. I had my eyes set on a nice bag with the style similar to this picture below. During my lunch at work, I decided to go and check out TJMaxx since it was nearby and see what kind of…

    Growing My Eyebrows with Castor Oil & Vaseline

    Do you ever wish your eyebrows were a little thicker and longer? If so, you’re not alone because my eyebrows are sparse and I’ve had the same thoughts. After watching a few youtube videos combined with reading articles on how to get your eyebrows thicker I learned of the two main ideas that were repeated. One of the ways to grow your eyebrow hairs is to apply Vaseline on your eyebrows before going to sleep and to continue applying Vaseline every night for a few months. I have used that method and it worked! I did it for 3 months consecutively and it did wonders, I saw a difference after…

    The Benefits of Facial Cleansing Brushes

    Facial cleansing brushes have become pretty popular lately. Currently, the most popular facial cleansing brushes are the Clarisonic, Olay, Proactive Deep Cleaning Brush just to name a few. One of the reasons they became so popular is the results viewers were seeing from their favorite YouTubers. I know I witnessed one of my favorite YouTubers using a Clarisonic and how she raved about it. Soon I learned one of my closest friends owned a Clarisonic, but I didn’t see many benefits for her specifically. Nor did she rave about it to me, she did mention how expensive it was. These facial cleansing brushes range between $5-$200. There are plenty of…
