Unboxing: my ESSENCE BeautyBox

Back in February I received another ESSENCE BeautyBox that is too good not to share with you! πŸ˜€ The ESSENCE box is a monthly subscription box with 5 makeup, skincare and hair products from big (black-owned) brands. The difference between this box and any other subscription boxes is that this one is targeted at women of color (WOC), which is pretty cool, especially when relating to hair products. In these boxes you will not find any products for ‘naturally straight’ hair, for example, or ‘blonde’ hair, products that I wouldn’t use anyway. The products are selected by the people from...

Laser hair removal costs a lot of money and of course people who’ve had it, want to know if the removal will be permanent. While it may seem like an easy ‘yes or no’ answer, it’s not. There are several important factors that determine whether or not you will achieve permanent hair removal. In today’s guest blog Kevin DiCerbo will...

My current hair care: Dessange Paris Purifying Clay Collection (available at Target)

This post is all about my hair care. πŸ™‚ Last time I mentioned my hair was when I talked about what I do before, while and after straightening my naturally curly hair. You can find that post here. After I cut my hair at the end of October I was looking for new hair products, because my new, short hair was looking super healthy and I wanted to keep it that way! The timing couldn’t be any better, because right around that time I was approached by Dessange Paris. Dessange Paris has their flagship store on one of my favorite...

Women of color! Check out the ESSENCE BeautyBox

Hi everyone! I received the ESSENCE BeautyBox the other day and I have to say: this is by far the best beauty box I’ve received this year! The best!

The subscription to the ESSENCE BeautyBox is completely separate from the magazine. If you sign up for the BeautyBox, they will...

My Target Holiday Box 2015 has arrived!

My Target Holiday Box 2015 has arrived! Actually, it got here a few days ago, but I’m just now getting around to taking pictures.

I personally love this particular box, these are all products that I will use! There’s not one product that I would consider a ‘dud’. $10 well spent. πŸ™‚ This holiday season there were actually two Target boxes: one for her and one for...

Makeup and outfit I wore last weekend (a lot of you asked!)

There wasn’t an update yesterday, because I wasn’t feeling all that well (headache, sore throat, tummy ache), sorry about that! I’m still not feeling that great, but a lot of people asked me about my outfit last weekend during the girls day out here in San Diego (check out that post, if you haven’t yet!), so I figured I’d let you all know the details through here. πŸ™‚ My outfit My black, short-sleeved romper with pockets from Primark (pre-haircut) My outfit was a black, short-sleeved romper with pockets that I got from Primark last year in the Netherlands.

Hi everyone! I had an appointment at the Benefit Brow Bar at my local Ulta store this past weekend and since it was my first time there, I thought it would be cool to document my before and after!

Let me know what you think. πŸ™‚ Before I naturally have very full eyebrows and If I don’t tweeze my eyebrows for just two weeks, this...
