Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday back to a whole new week, I hope everyone morning is going good so far? I noticed I haven’t been doing much make up haul or posts lately and I want to start posting more posts related to beauty for the next upcoming weeks. I decided to do a post on my current favourite lip products I am loving so far, I am so obsessed with these products I am using these four for pretty much every make up look I do. The first three I am obsessed with is from the Fenty beauty line, I am loving the glosses and lipstick. I love the texture and how it feels I first bought the shimmering rose nude loved that and had to try the diamond milk one. I was first hesitant to buying it because I honestly thought it would be like all the other clear glosses but I decided to give it a try, it was more like a last minute quick pick up purchase. But to be honest I love it as much as the fenty glow one it is pretty much the same result I love how it just looks on me. One of the things I love about the fenty beauty line is that the beauty products she makes is for all skin tones and women everywhere, and that is one thing the beauty industry needs more for women. As a women of colour one of the hard things for me when it comes to buying products especially either foundation or lip shades is that its hard for me to find ones that match or go with me perfectly. This is a brand I would continually buy from, I haven’t tried wearing it over other lip shades I usually just wear it alone.

The next product shown that I love is the Blackup gloss, I got this on sale but sadly I found out that it is not for sale on the Sephora site anymore and I am not sure if it would be back. So backup is a brand dedicated to women of colour and it was developed by women of colour and it caters to women of darker skin tones. This is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this product it does what the brand says, this gloss looks so good on me it blends in so well with my skin tone. The gloss is kind of like a clear gloss with a nude undertone it carries different under tone colours, so you can get a rose tone or a more brown tone and etc that is the best way I can explain since I cant bring it up on sephora. The gloss doesn’t come off to sticky the only issue is that when used it sometimes comes out separated from the colour so sometimes clear gloss comes out first then it coming out together.

So those are so far all and current favourite lip products am using when doing my make up. I do not want to go further in more detail with these because i just currently did a Sephora review post on my blog and I did go through these products already. But I wanted to do a separate post on what am currently loving at the moment for winter, if you haven’t tried fenty yet I recommend you do I can not find one thing I dont like. And if you are a women of colour and find it hard like me finding shades that go with your skin tone there is your brand, even if you are not of colour you can also check out the brand they have other products pretty much any one of any shade can still use. That is it for today’s post like & comment i love hearing from you all my next post will be up Wednesday at 3pm Toronto time lol, I am so happy I am finally on a posting schedule!

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to another blog post, I hope everyone day is going great so far. I am back with another blog post I have got to lately get time to work on my blog posts, I feel like a weight has been lifted off to be honest. I always get a bit upset when am behind and set back on my posts because of course being a mommy comes first. One of my top resolutions was to try and put in more work into my blogging and so far that hasn’t been happening, but hopefully I still try and not give up. So for today blog post is a haul on a bunch of cute kid buys I got lately. Its a bit a lot because I’ve been behind on my buys, and of course most of pretty much all is from zara. Zara started having their sale from since around last week of December till now, I swear this has been the longest sale they ever had that I know of. These are the cute buys that was picked up, all of them was reasonable priced. I cant complain their usual price is pretty expensive somewhat for “kid clothes”, sometimes I have to slow down on my purchases because the total comes down to be ridiculous.

The two cartoon shirts in the middle I purchased for my daughter, I saw them in the zara boys area. I dont really pick up boy clothes for my daughter by sometimes zara boy section has some cute picks and if it looks unisex I buy it. All items I get for my daughter I buy in a age six years or seven, this is because sadly the downfall of zara clothes is the fabric it is made out of but if washed in I believe warm or hot water they tend to shrink. I went through this a lot for awhile because it took me awhile to catch on that it was the fabric the problem, and they need to be washed in cold. But I still wash them in warm and they dont shrink that much I believe what shrank it a lot was the dryer. But she still has alot of surviving clothes so am starting to get the hand of it of how to handle the clothes. The last picture is a pair of cute grey wide leg pants with an cute grey bodysuit, I paired these two together. Sadly she cant wear the grey pants yet due to this awful weather (we are in winter) and we just literally got snow. So some of these clothes are put on the back burner for now.

I absolutely love this pink biker jacket as soon as it was out I have been eyeing it for the longest time, as soon as I saw it was part of the sale I just had to purchase it for my daughter. Shes five years old but I purchased an age seven, zara goes by age not particularly by sizes. But that is all the purchases my daughter got I will be having more haul to come sorry if this was pretty quick, I do have one for myself to be posted soon. Remember to comment & like I love hearing from you all.

Good morning everyone! Welcome back to another post I am finally doing a make up review. These are some sephora buys I got back in December for my birthday purchases and got sometime to somewhat try them out.  I know it seems a bit late but with products I love to just try them out for a while before making a big review. Also its been a bit hard to do make up haul and review lately since having a baby I hardly ever get time to sit and do my make up so hopefully I can get back to doing that.

So here is my review and thoughts about these products, I will first start with the fenty beauty the stunna lip paint long wear lip color  in chocolate-brown. And I must say this is so far my favorite lipstick at the moment, I am absolutely in love with this formula and color. I love how smooth it apply and the texture and color, it matches so well with my complexion and that is what I look first in lip colors. I’ve been looking for a while now on a color that will go so well with my complextion and I have found it. I will be making so much more purchases of this color and I also now want to give her other colors of matte lipsticks a try. Next would be the fenty lip gloss in diamond milk, I was at first hesitant to buy this when I saw this color came out because am not much a plain type to choose gloss colors like this ..but again I am in love with this gloss I just love how these colors look on me. Lately all I’ve been only been wearing fenty lip products, and I think I honestly will for awhile.

I also picked up a face mist I’ve been without one for a while now, I choose the yves saint laurent top secrets setting spray. I have used this a couple of times and I have nothing bad to say about it. I love how it feels on my skin there is no sticky or dry feeling after application of it and it dry well, I always make sure to moisturizer better using it this helps with the no dry feeling prior hand. The Anastasia product I purchased was the powered brozer, I got the color mahogany. I love how this color looked it is so pretty, and the color I thought would go well with my complexion. I use this to help with my contouring. Again I love the product how it was packaged I have no complaints about the product I would purchase this again. For the last product which is hard to see but it is the kat von d lock it setting powder. Now I for sure was not sure on buying this, I have been faithful to Laura mercier for the longest time. I have had bad experiences with setting powders settling properly into my skin because I have a darker complextion and some of them would show and I would end up looking pale. Until  found laura mercier power does not do that and it would apply smooth and I wouldn’t get that after effect. So I havent used or gave any other brands a try so I decided to try kat von d and surprisingly no pale effect. The powder is pretty smooth and I can live with it. I am happy this ended up being a good review and I didn’t have to give any thumbs down to any products, I am also happy I picked up products I don’t regret buying. But thanks for reading my review remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all!

Good morning little black dress fashionistas! For an actually first in a while I have a morning post, slowly but surely I am getting to somewhat of a handle on juggling a newborn a 5-year-old and getting back to my blogging.  (more…)

Good morning little Black Dress fashionistas! I am back with another post, as we are now in fall and saying good-bye to the hot weather until next year; I said why not make a skin related post. I know we all somewhat struggle with skin issues and especially every time the weather changes. So in today’s post let’s get into talking about extractions.


So before we start, the question we may be asking is what is extractions?

Extractions is something that takes place after skin has been throughly cleansed, exfoliated and steamed. Steam helps to soften up the skin and prep it before extractions takes place. This also helps soften up the sebum (oils) clogged in the skin and dead skin cells, which all clogs the skin pores. Extractions are one of the most important steps to take place in a facial, especially for any clients with blackheads and white heads that cannot remove them at home.

Benefits to extractions

If struggling with high levels of sebum (oils) because you may be an oily skin type or combination getting regular or few extractions done with help control white and blackheads. One of the best benefits to getting this done is over each time your skin will start to improve. Also following extractions an antiseptic/antibacterial is applied to bring the skin back to its normal pH balance, this also aids in preventing post facial breakouts. Also by choice getting high frequency done after extractions to the area kills the bacteria and calms the skin.

One of the best things of getting extractions done regularly is removing the gunk from your face, and allowing your face to feel zit free and feeling good after each treatment. Having extractions done also helps your skin get faster healing from acne, lesions and blemishes.

Conclusion to getting this done? Many people are always tempted to picking or poping, to staying and keeping and also achieving a healthier clear skin is it is always important to keep your hands away from your face. Doing this at home can damage and your pores and spread bacteria and actually make your skin worse, it is always best to leave it all to a professional. So if you got that oily acne skin or even constantly getting white heads and black heads why not go try this out?

Hope you all enjoyed my Wednesday post! Hope I could help a little if any of you are always seeking skin info, remember to like & comment I always love reading them and commenting back. See you on my next post! Xo
