Impromptu Post: “Finally Felt Like Spring”

I took this opportunity to post a blog post since the mood struck me in route to our family fun day! It finally felt like spring in Atlanta (yesssss) and I couldn’t be happier! I am a child of the sun! It just does wonders for my mood and energy level. I am more likely to pull myself together when the weather is nicer. So I decided to snap a few shots on the family outing to Dave and Busters despite a bad hair day (hence the high bun). I rocked a high bun, big sunnies and floral prints and it worked! But more importantly I can finally say it….HAPPY SPRING!!!

” Finding Inspiration in the Simple Things”

Lately I have been looking for new ways to be inspired. I just haven’t been feeling a creative as I normally would. Have ever just been so distracted with life’s little details to the point of insanity? I mean I just couldn’t feel my creative juices flowing because sometimes you have to handle so many things. But what I realized it’s not always about finding something new but rather revisiting the familiar. What made me smile, laugh and think? Let’s face it when you feel inspired by someone or something life’s just plan ole better. It does wonders for your appearance when you are feeling inspired or creative or at least it does for me.  When I’m not inspired I find myself frowning and looking unpleasant; people take notice to those things. So, I decided to get re-inspired! So here is a brief list of what are constant sources of inspiration but ones that I never get tired of.

  1. Hot café latte ( fresh start to the day)
  2. A great book ( a great escape or new beginnings)
  3. Women in Business ( courage, strength and building a legacy)
  4. A sunny day ( enjoy every day; there is always light at the end of the tunnel)
  5. Walks in the springtime( reminds me of God’s grace; time of reflection)
  6. High heels (sex appeal, I can handle anything and IAMWOMAN)
  7. Technology (how the world keeps changing whether we want it to or not)

Simple list but provokes deep thoughts; I am a thinker so these little things are huge for me! Find your inspiration and let me know how you did it by leaving your comments.


“Spin Off…What is BB Cream?”

Q AND A PIC FYI PICWhile BB Cream has become really popular not a lot of people really know what it is or what makes it so amazing. So let’s get is started! What does BB in BB cream stand for? BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base and beauty balm (Western markets). Where did BB cream come from? It originated in East Asia.  What’s all the hype behind BB cream? BB cream promises to be an all-in-one product. Supposedly it’s a serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sun block.  I am trying Maybelline BB cream and I hope it delivers all of these elements because this would be really convenient for travel. How can BB cream be used? There are a variety of ways this product can be worn: as a tinted moisturizer, over your moisturizer, and underneath your powder products. My reasons for using BB cream? I am using it as a replacement for foundation which I think was its intended purpose (totally a preference though). More beauty brands are developing their own line of BB creams; I am hoping it does not over saturate the market or compromise the integrity of the product and its intended purpose.
