Retail Therapy = Chic Therapy

Just thought i'd share my most recent fashion purchases with you guys
Gosh!i am so excited about this singer sewing machine i ordered from walmart. Cant wait for it to come in the mail.

Cosmetic Purchase

Stuff from the pictures above
I have never used Mary Kay so i was pretty excited about this purchase. I bought the medium coverage foundation and concealer. I love the really does conceal a lot of facial sins. I am looking forward to using the Mac powder blush as i have never had one before. The Maybelline bronzer is alright, nothing extra ordinary. I got Mac eyeshadow in Cranberry, Embark, Bronze,Swish Frost (i hate it!does nothing for me) and coppering (all time favorite). I also bought a silver MAC shade stick; since it is shimmery, It is a very good shadow base as it makes any color you use pop and last longer. I absolutely heart heart the Dior black out mascara, it does wonders for my non existing lashes. I usually use Iman stick foundation & pressed powder, so i was only stocking up on those. I found this amazing blush/powder brush, i love the soft bristle :-). The red lipstick is from Wet and Wild and i loooooooooove it. I was just re stocking on the Loreal hip duo , I must have three with the orange still intact cos i only use the beige. The other eyeshadow duos are random shadows i got and i dont even know what brand they are (too lazy to get up to find out). The next on my agenda is one of the painterly pots from MAC.

I am still giddy with excitement about my purchases and i am looking forward to trying different looks with them.
My MAC store on 04/26/10

  1. I love iman to..her powders are great for dark skin.

  7. I did buy a sewing machine about 4 months ago but to tell you the truth I problably only touched it 4 times . Uhmmmm maybe its time to get to work. Enjoy

  8. I recently bought Bobbi Brown's foundation to cover just the dark spots and my heavens foundation has changed over the years. It looks like I'm wearing nothing and I love it!

    I know I sound like a dinosaur but black makeup has truly grown in leaps in bounds. I stayed away from makeup so long because I thought it would make me look like a clown but beauty blogs have helped me to come out of hiding.

  9. @ get togetha good to hear that!i have never tried bobbi brown before may add it to my list

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
