I hope you had a great Christmas! Mine was a wonderful day spent with family. This year my husband and I decided to keep gifting to a minimum and focus more on being in the moment and spending time with our daughter.
A few weeks ago while I was perusing my email inbox ducking and dodging coupons for sales from some of my fav shopping places LOL (which were quite enticing) I came across one from MAC and had to open it. When I read about the Aaliyah collection at MAC Cosmetics, I knew I wanted to get my hands on some! I finally did and I wanted to share my review and try-on with you all especially since the collection is on sale now.
If your not familiar with who Aaliyah is, she was an International R&B Songstress who was taken from this world too soon after her plane crashed while she was traveling back to the states after a video shoot abroad. She was an actress and model with talent that transcended internationally and across cultures. She had several musical hits, some of my favorite songs are, “One in a Million”, “Four Page Letter”, “Are You That Somebody” and “You are Love.
She is very much missed. My heart was elated to hear that her family collaborated with MAC Cosmetics to share this collection that was inspired by her music and fashion.
Like many people, fall is not my favorite season and I prefer the warm over the cold, your girl can be flexible though and find some positive attributes regarding the fall season. I mean outside of sweater dresses and OTK (Over the knee boots), hot cocoa and fuzzy socks I also enjoy the collegiate tradition of HOMECOMING!
I have another product review for you all and this time I even have a video to go along with it. Today we are talking about the Vivo Per Lei LaboratoriesMagnetic Deep Hydration Mask. Just in time for the long Labor day weekend, this is also my anniversary weekend so an afternoon of pampering was exactly what I needed.
I know it has been a while, I’ve tried to write this post several times and each time I couldn’t finish and then more time passed. There have been some very positive life changes that caused me to really review my priorities and face the reality that I can not do every thing. While I’ve graciously received the title of Wonder Woman, from my soon-to-be- five year old Queen-in-training. I am in fact not Wonder Woman and balancing several roles this year has been rewarding and also a challenge.
I recently joined the fellas of DivergentThought on their internet radio show to share my thoughts on workplace attire and personal image. Mr. Barrington Little, who is like my brother and good friend from college; along with Dr. Charles Thomas and Daryl Peace host DivergentThought every Wednesday from 8-9pm EST to discuss various issues and offer different points of views. Catch the replay of all the fun commentary here.
Today is kind of reflective day. Google reminded us that it was October 17 and in 1989, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez released her first album, self titled, Selena. If you are a Selena fan like me then you know, she lives forever in our hearts. If you are not familiar with Selena, she was a Mexican- American pop artist and superstar who was very popular in the 90’s. She had hit songs, such as, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, Dreaming of You, and I could fall in love, to name a few.
Can you believe it, it’s fall already. I seems like just yesterday everything was warming up for spring and summer. Those are my two favorite seasons. My husband loves fall and is always trying to get me to do more outdoor activities in the fall. Well I didn’t mind being outdoors to support a good friend who invited me to La Grange Winery.
