Nude Lips: Revlon Mink & Supernatural

I love my pink and red lipsticks, but sometimes, a girl just wants to rock an extra subtle lip color. I have searched high and low and I tell ya, finding nude lipstick for dark skin is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Then recently, I saw a picture of my friend and fellow blogger Fab Coco Berry rocking the perfect nude lip color. Coco Berry and I have similar skin tones,and I thought I'd try the Revlon "Mink" lipstick and "supernatural" lip gloss she was rocking in the picture. Finding supernatural was a breeze, but it took 4 store trips to find Mink (plus I was fortunate to snag the last one on the shelf). 
Until now, my everyday lip color has been Revlon's crystal lilac, but I love, love these nude colors and they are fast becoming my favorite.

  7. Lovely

  8. Amazing!!!
    Would you like to follow each other on GFC and FB?
    Let me know... I will follow you back!!!

  9. Yessssss! I really appreciate the brown girl nude lip and it looks great on you! I will definitely be checking out Revlon :)

  10. It looks great on you! I'm also nw45/revlon cappuccino and i bought both products. It came out looking darker on my lip...a "between medium brown and medium-dark brown with a bit of red mixed in". it didn't have that "nude" look like yours did in the above photo. Maybe the colour of my lip changed the colour...maybe the colour compositions are different in canada..? I'll try it with a lip primer next time and see what happens! Xo

  11. Update: I tried it again with a lip primer (I've tried with lip primers made by MAC and also Cargo cosmetics) and I LOVED it! It is now my "everyday" lipstick. When used with primer, the staying power ain't so bad either! So glad I bought the lipstick and looks great! Thank you!

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
