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!

A little motivation and positive vibes for the new year, I love a great quote in the morning.

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! It’s crazy it’s the last day of 2018. It went by so fast I feel like it just zipped through, this year was a bitter-sweet year for me to be honest I can’t complain. Everything that happened made me better or just made me stronger, I am now so ready to bring in the new year and make new memories with my family. I am also excited to see what 2019 has in store for me I hope its more sweet than bitter.

A lot has happened to me in one year, a whole lot of emotions but of course am not going to get into everything. Here are my highlights of my year!

  1. My oldest daughter starting her last year of kindergarten – This was really emotionally for me because she is just not a baby anymore.
  2. Finding out I was Pregnant – Of course because this was the biggest surprise!
  3. The birth of my second daughter – This was of course the biggest, five whole years later another daughter. I will never of course forget those precious moments I experienced.
  4. Seeing my husband go back to school – This was a huge moment for me because he finally found what he loves doing and he took a huge leap and went back. Especially in an odd time because I was pregnant that moment and he is doing it all while being a father.
  5. Starting my blog – This was a total unexpected experience for me, from leaving a job I somewhat hated and one day picking up my laptop and finally starting a blog that I always wanted to do but I always procrastinated. But it just wasn’t the time and that day I picked up my laptop and did it was the right time.

I can’t not wait to embrace 2019 and see what it has in store, its crazy how the days are just flying by so fast. Now everyday we just have to soak in every last-minute before it just flashes before our eyes. 2018 has gone too fast for me but I would like to see what my next chapter holds, what is one of your biggest 2018 moments? Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you all! Thanks for reading!

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
