#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

#SPOTLIGHT Review| St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Exfoliating Facial Scrub

I have oily-combination skin on my face. And that seems like a simple term, but for me it’s quite complex. My forehead and the area around my nose try to compete with the sun to see who can shine the most. While my chin and cheeks dry out in the desert.

I’ve found that using the St. Ives facial scrub kind of sets me back at one. My skin is not too dry and not too oily. But I will … Read More

#LifeInView| Sucka For Love

Let me ask you something, Are you a Sucka For Love? If you’re confused, I’ll explain why I’m asking the question. Yesterday evening was the first night that our fire pit was turned on for the season. We (being my mom and me) live in an apartment building so the fire pit is a community fire pit. This would usually be a problem because I’m actually not that sociable in real life, I’m quite introverted. But I guess there are … Read More

Review| Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen

Posted in September 2017

I don’t think there are enough words in the English dictionary for me to explain how much I love Cheddar’s. I always go hungry and leave feeling like I’m going to epically explode but with a smile on my face. My most recent visit was at the beginning of August, and let me tell you, I’ve gone far too long without a Cheddar’s fix.

The area I live in is what’s called a tri-state area. So I live in Ohio, … Read More

#SPOTLIGHT Review| e.l.f Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder Dark/Deep

My best friend got married a month and a half ago and asked me to be her maid of honor. I didn’t realize what my job would be in saying yes. And for some reason, I never thought about makeup. I watch makeup tutorials on YouTube. And at the time, the sad amount of “makeup” I had consisted of an eyeliner pencil I used for both my brows and eyes and some blush. (The said eyeliner and blush had been … Read More

#SPOTLIGHT Review|Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

I am a black woman with quite thick kinky-curly hair. I went natural a few years ago (that’s a story in itself) and I’m always on the hunt for products that can do my hair justice. In a YouTube video, I was watching the lady used this conditioner on her hair. So the next visit to Walmart I picked some up.

I have to say, at first I was unbelieving. I hadn’t used the product yet. But I couldn’t visualize … Read More

#FRI-YAY #1 Review|Febreze Air Meadows & Rain

Can I be honest with you all? I knew this was going to be the first product I reviewed for a #fri-yay when I was coming up with the idea for a blog. How did you know that you may be thinking? Because in all honesty, I felt like a dog who had been victimized by the sound of a dog whistle for an hour when I smelled it. And in using that metaphor, I’m not being mean. I’ll give … Read More

Introducing #FRI-YAY Reviews, Every Friday (Seriously)

Introducing #FRI-YAY Reviews, Every Friday (Seriously)

I think one of the fun things about having a new blog is getting to introduce new segments. Today, I mentally shout from my couch where I type this, the first #fri-yay review. And to most, it probably won’t be what you think it is. Usually, everyone is in a happy-happy-joy-joy mode for the weekend that they forget life is the same. So for those people, I’m here to save you (honestly, truly) from … Read More

Tech Review| Canva iOS App

This is my first review on this blog and I am very pleased that it is a positive one. Anyone who is starting out knows the difficulty in finding resources. And it doesn’t necessarily matter what they are starting out in. They could be pursuing their dream, starting a new job, or opening a new business. The point is, at the very beginning of anything, there’s not much money to spend.

I want to make … Read More
