Unboxing: April BoxyCharm Beauty Box!

Hey Hey Ruby Beauties!

If you’ve been following the blog from the beginning you know that I am a former Sephora Play beauty box subscriber. I decided to end my subscription because at times the products were getting repetitive and didn’t always match what I was looking for. For a moment I was a little jaded but now I am back on the saddle and ready to try another beauty box. Currently the only other box I am subscribed to the Ivy Box, the subscription box of my sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha. I debated which beauty box I wanted to try, since there are so many subscription boxes to chose from, and as you guessed from the title of this post, drum roll please… I went ahead and decided to try BoxyCharm!

Try on and Review: MAC Aaliyah Collection

Try on and Review: MAC Aaliyah Collection

Greetings Rubies!
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.

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!

Life update: Hello again!

Greetings Rubies!

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.

We can do it pink and green
