I’ve searched high and low for a nude that would compliment my chocolate brown skin, and after plenty of trials and errors I’ve finally found it! NYX’s brand is one of my absolute favorites currently. I’ve always appreciated the lip glosses because it gives me not only a dose of Shine, it’s so very pigmented. I’ve blended Praline and Beyond Basic, which is their new slip tease full color lip oil. Because I am a chocolate cutie, I find that I don’t need much Beyond Basic. I first use Praline as a base coat of sorts, then  I dab about three dots on my bottom lip and I blend my lips together then Voila! Magic is created! Also in this look I use my NYX’s bright idea illuminating stick in Sun Kissed Crush on my Cupid’s bow. 

Tell me what to think? Simple but Chic! 


Well Are you? 

I’ve learned, especially this current year that I offer all my biggest blessings to my friends, if in need. I believe that as a friend I’m supposed to be there when my friends are in need. It surprised me to find out that there are friends out there that are not extending their biggest blessings. 

And if you found out someone wasn’t offering you their biggest blessing can they really be considered a friend? Sorry but they cannot. Take this as an example, this week you just don’t have enough money to buy yourself groceries. As a friend if I know this, and I do not volunteer to help with either the buying of groceries, or cooking for you or even giving you what I have in my fridge, whatever I can do for you. No way am I saying you should put yourself in the hole BUT if you aren’t offering your BIGGEST blessing then what are you offering? 

And the biggest blessings doesn’t have to be monetary. I have a friend whom I love dearly, and for me the biggest blessing he’s blessed me with has been his amazing listening ear, providing his time for ‘advice time’ and his unwavering loyalty. I’ve learned who my friends are just by their actions, don’t bind yourself to someone who isn’t tipping the scale equal. I honestly believe if you receive a blessing, it’s not yours to keep forever tucked away in your pocket. Be a true blessing to someone else and offer your biggest blessing.

I had a best friend once.

I thought we would be tight forever. Instead of having a maid of honor, he would be my best man. Never a secret, everything was laid on the line, cuz secrets couldn’t exist between my best friend and I. A sense of sereneity, because trusting someone with your whole entire heart is no easy feat but once its done, its the most bliss you can experience.

Then he falls in love, and you don’t.

And because you don’t fall in love, he begins to resent you. Soon enough, its only silence, on both ends. Whoever said love doesnt complicate life, lied. You even make an attempt to reciprocate those feelings, but even more resentment, cuz its not genuine. Eventually, there’s no hello. No more peace, just a girl wishing she had her best friend back.

I’ll always miss you J.
