Unboxying and Try-on: May BoxyCharm! {Video}

Hey Hey Rubies!!

I hope your May has been going well so far! I’m two months into my BoxyCharm Subscription and it’s very rare that a box will get 5 out of 5 Rubies from me, but I am really digging all the items I received this month. I was pleasantly surprise to received my BoxyCharm Subscription box early this month. The theme for May is “Make Waves” and Ruby this has all the makings of looking you best while having fun in the sun this spring/summer season.  I am really loving all the items I received in my box. There was a product for just about every area of my face. I literally did a complete look (save for foundation) eyes, lips, cheeks look everything straight out of the box!

Try on and review: Wet N’ Wild Rebel Rose Skin Care collection

Greeting Ruby Beauties!

A few weeks ago I was researching drug store beauty brands to revisit in the coming weeks and I was a huge Wet and Wild fan way back in my college days, like most college students I was broke making poor financial decisions. This one not so much because their make-up is very reasonably priced and as a student they were the only brand I could afford LOL. Their gloss and other lip products were my #1 favorite beauty item, and honestly back then, I couldn’t really use their foundation or face products because in my opinion it didn’t cater to women of color well.   It has been many years and I must say after visiting their website, I was quite impressed!  Which is why I was so eager to try the Rebel Rose Limited edition collection (the entire box retails for $24.99).

Unboxing: April BoxyCharm Beauty Box!

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!

Remebering Selena: MAC Collection try- on

Remebering Selena: MAC Collection try- on

Greetings Rubies…

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.

OOTD: Orange One Shoulder Dress

Hello Again Rubies-

So I’ve been shifting through my camera roll (my DSLR and cell phone) finding photos of previous travel and other activities and I thought why not share them with my Rubies.

Someone once asked me how I would describe my style. I had to give it some thought…I didn’t want to admit that I was a dress girl (I don’t know why) but my closet draws a clear picture.   I suppose the words I would best describe my style right now (because it does change)  are simple chic elegance.

Girl’s night out at Blue Mercury

Girl’s night out at Blue Mercury

Hey Rubies!

Finally, spring is here, summer is right around the corner, and the weather is finally catching up! One of my good friends called me up, knowing I love all things beauty and asked if I wanted to attend an event at Blue Mercury in DC  with her. I had two responses for her, sure (let me make sure my three-year-old mini is all set after school) and what exactly is Blue Mercury? I had never heard of the beauty retail chain.
