It’s been almost 2 weeks since my trip to California & I’m still living on cloud 9. I have had a love for California since I was 13, and to have been able to actually experience the lifestyle – I really couldn’t have asked for a better way to come into the New Year.
The main reason why Darien and I ended up in California for the weekend was because of Generation Beauty hosted by Ipsy. I am super thankful to have been invited to the event through the IpsyOS team; they are really big on spreading the light in the Beauty and Fashion community and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of their team.
I was totally overwhelmed by the amount of free make-up that was given out to the Attendees, so much so that I decided to share with y’all ALL the goodies.
Did you attend Generation Beauty in LA? How about in SF or NYC? I would love to know your thoughts and feelings on the experience.
Thank you again, IpsyOS for the invite!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by; forever and always sending my love your way.
Though I’ve been pretty MIA the last few months of 2016, one thing that I was consistently posting about was my assignments from the online course I took with Parsons & Teen Vogue.
I recently completed the course – and received my certificate – and couldn’t be more happy. I thought it would be great to share both my experiences & thoughts on the course incase you had ideas on taking the course yourself.
You can check out my review below:
Have you heard of the Fashion Essential’s course with Parsons & Teen Vogue? Are you currently enrolled? Recently completed the course? I would love to read your thought!
One of my New Year’s resolution for both my blog and YouTube channel is definitely branching out into the world of Mom Blogging. I follow so many mom bloggers who coordinate their looks with their little ones; and the swagspiration is always on point. Now that my girl is almost 2 1/2 years old, I am excited to slowly introduce her to the blogging world and hope that she enjoys it as much as I do.
I’m happy to say that our first impromptu photo shoot went pretty well.
The last month of 2016 has been a month filled with both reflections and hardcore planning. Expect to see more of me this year – and occasionally, a very special, miniature, guest.
Denim: Urban Outfitters
Beanie: The Baldie Movement
Belt: Old Navy

Thank you for stopping by; forever thankful for the love and support. Sending all of my unconditional love your way. Forever and always. ❤
I hope you had a great weekend bringing in the New Year. I am super stoked to see what this year has in store for me – I already have great feelings about what’s to come!
Thinking back to this time last year, I was still working on getting comfortable being a bald woman. I had shaved December 28th, 2015, with the purpose of going into 2016 with a much needed drastic change. I was diagnosed with Androgenic Alopecia when I was 18 and wanted to shave bald since then, but was scared to commit. I got over the fear and am so blessed I decided to go for the plunge!
Here are a few benefits I have gained since shaving bald and living life as a proud baldie:
Have you every thought about shaving bald or have shaved bald before? If so, what were some of the benefits you’ve gained? I would love to hear them!
Thank you so much for watching & stopping by! I’ll catch you guys on my next post.
I’m back at it again with a new Parsons x Teen Vogue assignment.
I don’t have many left to do, which is super exciting. I started this class almost a year ago! I am super close to obtaining my certificate in the Fashion Industry Essentials.
Today’s assignment is a bit different compared to the other two I recently posted up. This one focuses on playing around with your analytic information on both hootsuite.com and the built-in functions on social media websites; in my case that was WordPress & Youtube.
From the information I gathered, I learned that most of my readers are female, in between the ages of 18-24. They mostly come from the United States but I found that a few European countries [France, United Kingdom, Italy to name a few] and Brazil were other places where my content is being watched & read.
It’s really interesting learning where in the world your content is being viewed. I am definitely going to take some time to really learn how to properly use the analytical information on these tools. When examined properly, there is definitely potential of being able to use that to your advantage as far as marketing goes.
A few months back, I was sent a few haircare products from a company called Pura D’or. I have haircare products italicized because if you’ve been following me for a bit, you would know that I actually don’t have hair at all. I’m a proud Baldie.
Giving love to your scalp is a necessity. Now more than ever if you’re a baldie like me. Conveniently enough, Pura D’or contacted me at the perfect moment – they offered to send me products to help with my dry scalp! I haven’t spoken about this much in my blog or YouTube channel, but since shaving bald, I noticed that I do have issues with dry scalp. It flakes every time I clip my hair and it sometimes start itching, especially when my hair is growing back in.
I’ve been using these products non-stop since receiving them – they have even become a part of my weekly routine! I decided while doing this review video, it’d be the perfect opportunity to share my weekly shaving routine.
The products they sent me are:
Scalp Therapy Shampoo
Organic Anti-Aging Face Cream
Pure & Organic Arian Oil
Here are my thoughts on the products & my routine:
I hope you had an amazing weekend! My weekend’s been pretty chill – I spent Saturday working on a school project at a friends house & spent my Sunday doing some Spring Cleanin’. It was desperately needed; I already feel more at ease with what’s to come as far as life & time managing goes. My foundation is organized. #blessed
I managed to even get a video edited this weekend: I introduce to you my sister, Bernice.
We’ve been talking about filming this video since 2014, and FINALLY, we found time to make this Sister Tag happen. I don’t film tag videos often, so I hope you enjoy this personal video!
Sit back, relax & watch my sister and I act like fools.
