Facial Cleansers!

Good Morning

When I was in college (which was only a few months ago) and would come back from a party at 2am, there were two things I was never too drunk to do: wash my face and wrap my hair.

This post is not only for those girls that enjoy a daily face beat but also for the gals that like to go au natural and wear little to no makeup. No matter what category you fit into, the most important thing to remember is to wash your face daily!

Washing your face everyday is super important because 1. you never want to sleep in your makeup and 2. even if you don’t wear makeup, nature’s elements like dust particles and dirt can land on your skin and help clog your pores and even lead to acne.


…I know right?!


Typically, my face washing routine involves me removing my makeup with coconut oil and then washing my face using the Neutrogena Naturals Facial Cleanser and Pore Scrub. They both cost about $7-$8 each and they feel so light on my skin.

So with the help of some friends, I did a little research about some other popular facial cleansers and products that our generation is using.

Graduation Party Attire

Hey Hey! This is my first fashion blog post so here we go…

Last weekend I did a little celebrating with the family in lieu of me graduating college this past May. It was held outdoors at my cousin’s house and the temperatures reached up to the low 90s. It was HOT! Knowing this I decided to wear something simple and easy to move in. I found this a-line dress the day before and I love it first and foremost because it’s white. I love wearing all white. It’s just so clean and simple but eye-catching at the same time. I didn’t get to wear white for graduation so I was kind of making up for it now. Plus, Black people have a knack for looking amazing in all white. I also love that with white, you have so many options for makeup. Simple and natural or smokey and fierce. I decided to go simple.

Since this was a cookout I took a huge chance with wearing white (and yes I did spill a tad bit of BBQ sauce on it but it wasn’t noticeable #ThankGod). I paired my white dress with simple white sandals and gave my hair a little body by braiding it the night before and then taking it out the morning of, however, the weather made some of my waves fall :[ As for jewelry, I wore my pearls that I wear everyday. Pearls are my favorite because they are simple and go with everything. You’ll also begin to notice that I wear minimal jewelry, if any at all.
