To start things off, I chopped all of my hair off! I just had a strong urge to just chop it all off and well...I did. At the time I didn't understand it but now I know it was symbolic of a re-birth. A birth of new positive energy that has shifted into my life and left me bald-headed and un-bothered.Read More

It's amazing how life works. Since I've reached my 30's, it's like I can see my journey to becoming an adult with clearer lenses now. My 20's allowed me to make my mistakes and find my way but my 30's has allowed me to grow from my mistakes, become a better version of myself and explore what brings me joy. My choices, the bits of passion that I tap into, everything that I am is a reflection of what God has intended for me to be. This revelation has never been any clearer and it's so beautiful.Read More

Winter has been so cruel to me so far. Let's just start there...
Not only has it held me hostage in the house due to winter storms, icy roads and bitter air but it's also left me with no choice but to eat myself to shame with holiday feasts and warm comfort foods! So with the extra weight gain and a little extra monthly bloating on top of that, I've been forced to pull out some effective strategies to hide the pooch.
One of my go-to tactics is to wear a high waist pencil skirt and pair it with a long scarf over a long sleeve fitted shirt. The high waist on the pencil skirt sucks in the lower half of the belly, adding some shape and the scarf hides the top. It's still sexy, classy and professional but also does the trick of hiding what you may feel a little more self conscious about.
Not to mention that a good scarf can add some personality to your outfit. It can turn a basic outfit into a complete look within 3 seconds.
Until next time...Later FABs!

Sooo, I'm totally obsessed with Issa Rae these days. She's such a talented woman who us "Awkward Black Girls" can relate to. Some may think that she blew up overnight but Issa really started from the bottom to become the HBO sensation that she is today. I definitely look up to her and admire her "realness." While watching YouTube as I do ever so often, I ran across an interview that she did with Roland Martin. She was explaining how there's so much creativity in 'brokenness.'Read More
Primers are definitely a major key for applying makeup but I have YET to find one that doesn't contribute to my oily skin. The majority of primers also serve as a moisturizer which is a plus but it just seems to materialize as more unneeded oil on my face. My skin gets sooo oily throughout the day. Issa midday struggle looking in the mirror at my oily face. Taking 30 minutes to beat my face in the morning, only to discover that my face is glistening by noon is a real disappointment.Read More
The line currently has 9 lipstick shades in the collection. The lipstick is a more of a cream with a satin finish. It’s a traditional lipstick with colors that look great against our skin. With that said, you may have to re-apply as the day goes on but I have found that I only had to reapply once or twice throughout the day. Although, they are not the liquid lipsticks or have the all-day staying power as many of the other matte lipsticks on the market, the Mented Cosmetics lipsticks do have staying power to last through coffee/tea and a meal or two.Read More
