Forever 21 Haul!

me tired after all this hauling! lol

these shoes are sooo bad ass! cant wait to rock them!

video coming soon on how to stretch these puppies out! downside to online shopping: so hard to exchange for the correct size

this sports bra comes in a variety of colors. i think im going to order the others!

Love this dress! so chic and sexy!

so pretty and girly!

its been forever (no pun intended) since i did a clothing haul. i'm really not a big fan of doing hauls in general unless its about that i really love. in this case, i really LOOOOOVE Forever 21! ha ha! its is prob the greatest store on earth. i cant say that there is not one things in that place i wouldnt wear. and the best thing about it is that super afordable!! the newest cutest trendiest clothes and acessories without breaking the bank... i aint mad at that! so here is some stuff that i order from i really like to shop online with them because of where i live. the closest 2 are really far away (like 45 mins to an hour) and most of the time alot of things they carry online i cant ever locate in the store. so i just get it straight from the source! hope you all enjoy the haul and thanks for visiting my page! xox

(cant put dirty brushes on this face!) but i did take pictures of the brushes and will post the info for all of them. i know in the video i just kinda ran thru it. also i'll be sure to inclube a link to e.l.f.'s website! Click here for E.L.F website! overall i can def say i'm very pleased with the service i recieved from this company! it even came in really nice packaging which i share with you in my haul video.

Black Women??

So I have a lot to get off my chest right now lol. I know this is mainly a beauty blog but I use it to discuss personal issues as well. Any who, moving on. Just came out of my sociology class and we had the most interesting discussion. What it came down to for me was how comfortable am I with being a black woman in this society and how do I feel about how I am portrayed.
For starters growing up I never had an issue with how I looked which is a little strange bcus most children are often judge themselves based on others around them. I was nvr that child. I loved who I was considering that my childhood friends growing up. One was white, one was puerto rican and the other was half white half black. I don't recall ever looking and admiring them saying "I wish I had her hair" or "I wish my skin was lighter". I was a very confident girl, still am. I am very proud to say that bcus I know so many young black women struggle with accepting their appearance. Esp those with darker complexions. The media does not help this one bit. When we look thru magazines, tv, music videos, movies, etc the images we see are of black women with lighter complexions. Most of the women in the black community that are considered "beautiful" are light skin, long curly/wavy/silky hair. Some examples are Beyonce, Halle Berry, Lauren London and the list goes on. In music videos its even worst. Black women are pretty much no existent. All we see are super light skin girls, Asians, whites, or latinas. I often wonder to myself "why don't I ever see anyone that looks like me in these videos?? Am I not pretty enough to be on a yacht sipping champagne??" Lol I'm joking and serious at the same time with that. I really don't care who finds me attractive or not, as long as I can look in the mirror and find satisfaction with what I see, its all good.
Most successful black men often pair themselves with these sort of women and I always wonder why. There are so many arguments I've heard about this and I have a counter argument for each and every one. I'm like why is a black woman not good enough to be on ur arm in the spotlight?
I could go on forever about this but I'm going to stop for now bcus my fingers are hurting. I'll be back soon with a part 2 to this entry. Until then stay beautiful (no matter what color you are)! Embrace who YOU are!
