~Be mindful of what you’re putting on your skin! Some of these so called miracle products are more harmful than helpful. If the label has a bunch of ingredients that you can’t pronounce, it may not be right for you! ~
I used to be the girl that would buy any and every smell good lotion, spray, deodorant, etc. As I got older my skin started changing more and those products would make me itch, break out and flare up my eczema. I didn’t think anything of it until I read The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snyder a few years ago. In the book she broke down how a lot of these products have harmful chemicals that can damage your skin in the long run and even enter your blood stream, which can also do damage internally. I highly encourage you all to check out the book, major eye opener! No need to be scared though, just be more mindful when reading the labels on your favorite beauty products. Research is key!

I’m extremely picky when it comes to skin products, like extremely picky. BUT it’s for a good reason! My skin be sensitive man! LOL! Other beauty bloggers can try every new beauty product out there, but not me. No ma’am! Tried it and my skin broke out bad! I was extremely excited when a friend of mine posted about the Shea Moisture African Black Soap Facial Regimen on her Instagram and went right to Target to pick it up. I’ve used their black soap for a while now but I didn’t know that they had a whole facial line. My skin isn’t bad or anything, I just wanted a full line that I can use consistently. I’m going to try it out for about 2 weeks and let you all know how I like it. But I will say, so far so good!
You can pick up the Shea Moisture African Black Soap Facial Regimen set from Target for about $17!
Has anyone tried out the Shea Moisture African Black Soap Facial Regimen? Let me know in the comments below!

If you breathe oxygen and have blood flowing warmly through your veins…I would be willing to bet that you have experienced it at some point in your life. Perhaps it was the prospect who chose not to do business with you. Maybe it was the a father who wasn’t there for you. It could have been the feeling you experienced when you were the last one picked for the kick ball team at recess. Maybe it was the cute guy you had your eye on who failed to even acknowledge you or your interest. Maybe it was the jokes you experienced the first time you decided to try wearing eyeshadow in the 7th grade, or the way you wobbled the first time you put on a pair of pumps…before the wobble was an actual dance. It could have been the time your mother forgot to pick you up from school and you were the last child there. Maybe it had to do with the basketball games that were missed, even though your father promised to attend. Perhaps it was seeing all the other classmates greeted by their parents with flowers and banners after a championship game while you stood there hoping no one would notice that you had no one. What am I talking about? Rejection. It can cause some to shrink back, and others to develop through the feelings of perceived rejection.
Ok so as you can see I LOVE the undercut and I LOVE April Daniels’ cut! If you’re not familiar with April, her and her husband (songwriter Lashawn Daniels) are on WE’s “Tamar & Vince”. Check out a few of her great hair pic’s!

A few months back, I decided to get my nose pierced. I wanted to for a while, however it wasn’t appropriate for my place of employment at the time, so I respectfully held off. After experiencing change in that area, I decided to go for it.
As I climbed up in the piercing chair, the piercer filled me in on general information and then asked me if I wanted him to count to 3 before piercing my nose or to just do it.
I replied, “Just do it, I don’t want the anticipation.” Continue reading “EllaVate: A Life Lesson I Learned While Getting My Nose Pierced” »
