#SPOTLIGHT Review| Garnier SkinActive Soothing Cleansing Milk

I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found this in the mail when I came home from lunch. I mentioned in the #SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex post that I was looking for new skin care products to try and boom, found one! Now, this was sent to me from BzzAgent. They will send you products just for your reviews and I think this is awesome … Read More

Learning About My Family History Led Me to K-POP

Posted in September 2017
(PAE note: I didn’t put a #hashtag title with this because I’m still unsure if I want to make this a series or not. If you want me to, please just let me know.)

As soon as I learned my colors, I knew something was different about my family. There were so many colors involved. The various hues and saturation of browns with rich undertones of yellows and reds. I’ve always been a curious person, even at a young … Read More

#FRIYAY #3 Review| SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Happy #FRIYAY ya’ll! Once again we have gathered here to discuss the products you may want to stay away from if you want your #FRIYAY joy to continue all weekend. Today is a little different because I have the first hair product for this type of review. It’s a little interesting too because it’s a product that’s very well known. But I will say (type) that I gave this product more than one chance.

So I admit that I gave … Read More

#LifeInView| The Visionary Friend

How’s your vision? Would you say it’s quite good or would you say it was bad? If we were talking about literal eyesight than you wouldn’t want to depend on me for anything without my glasses because my vision is actually quite poor. But no, today we’re figuratively discussing our vision or how much or how well we pay attention to others.

The definition of the word visionary means to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. … Read More

#SPOTLIGHT Review & Rant| Skin Effects by Dr. Jeffery Dover Self-foaming Cleansing Pads with Retinol Complex

I had intended to just discuss how much I love this skin care product until I went online and I determined that I couldn’t find it anywhere. Well, I just told you a lie. I found it on Amazon being sold by the company, but it’s currently unavailable. Or you can purchase it on old reliable eBay for twice the original price. This though happens to be an occurring problem of mine. I will work on and use a product … Read More

#TackleThatFro| I Give Up Creamy Crack!

Photo cred: pierre_artista

I don’t even know where to start this story from, should it be: the middle, the beginning, the end? Have you ever tried or done something that you didn’t know was bad for you until later but somehow you continue to do it for awhile before you quit? If your answer is yes, then you feel my pain. If your answer is no, that’s okay just keep reading and hopefully, you will understand.

I remember my first … Read More

#LifeInView| Letting Go of Old

Monday, we said goodbye to the final piece of the past. In a way, it was an odd experience because to anyone else these are just two bookcases. To my mother and I, it’s us saying goodbye to memories and a chunk of our lives that had been overshadowed by my father. Even typing out these words seem weird to me because my father’s been gone for 12 years.  But this was the last thing of his (He’s not dead, … Read More

Introducing, #TackleThatFro Natural Hair Series

Believe it or not, this isn’t my first time writing this post. I had everything done, then I went and made a mistake. I’d started writing this post on my phone, then I switched over to my laptop. Later on, I got back on my phone the app did a progress update.

The only thing I had written down on my phone was the title and a few tags, but that’s what got saved. Whoops! So what have I learned … Read More

#SPOTLIGHT Review| Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

A family friend gave us one to try because she’s always raving about how well they work. I had been hearing about these things for years and I’m not one to immediately give in to the hype. But I have to say, I was pretty amazed by how well it worked. I started running around trying to find dirt or tough spots to clean.

We recently moved into a new apartment and trying to keep everything in brand new condition … Read More
