Anti Haul – Beauty products I will not buy

There is a challenge video going on over on Youtube, the anti haul video is a a fun video to make. You don’t have to spend money( Or maybe you did and you wouldn’t recommend the product) and you get ot share your opinion on why those products aren’t worth you spending money on.

There are about seven products I have listed in the video. I could have listed a few more but I didn’t want the video to be too long. One product that I didn’t list was one that I personally bought and that was the ABH Renaissance palette. I LOVE a few of the colors ( Love letter, Venitian red and Red ocher are my fave) However the amount of FALL OUT is RIDICULOUS!

I own the ABH World Travler palette and that is amazing, no fall out and one of my favorite everyday palette to use.  I am so sad that it was only limited time.

Seriously if you can get your hands on that palette do so! My sister came to visit and I bought two because I loved it so much and I gave her my other one and she said its her favorite as well. Anyway this blog post is NOT about products I love lol. Below you can see what products made my Anti- Haul list.

What would be on your anti haul list? Tell me in the comments bellow

You GLOW Girl!!!

The other day I was scrolling through some comments on my youtube page and came across a comment that made me chuckle to myself. It was on a video I had made of just a lazy Sunday with my family and us cooking a meal. In that video my husband and I talked about one of our favorite mini doughnut places and it just so happen that in that week we visited three times. We had guest over and friends of our wanted to go there.

This comment said something to the fact that I shouldn’t eat the doughnuts and my husband is just worried about my size and I need to get healthy so I can have a long and happy life.

UMMMMMMM…..

I always laugh a little when I read these “concerns”

I have battled eating disorder after eating disorder and although my BMI may be high my health is GOOD. NO high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes etc. You know…all the health risk that people think automatically comes with being overweight.

I  let their comment roll of my back(since they hid behind a profile with no pic like a real concerned person lol) I decided to just go on about my day.When I first started youtube I would really let it get to me but now I was going to be my fabulous self no matter what. I came across this picture and I was immediately inspired.

Both my kids had taken a nap. I looked in my backyard and was like YEP I am going to photograph myself and show off my blackgirl magic. I am going to embrace all these curves, my natural hair and just WORK IT. Here are the results:

YESSSSSSS I am so happy that they turned out just how I envisioned in my head. So ethereal, calming and it captured me. I think its so important for us to love ourselves no matter what size we are. Self care and self love is so important and is something I am excited about teaching my son and daughter.

So many times I see people hide behind a computer screen and project their insecurities on others. Do not let those keyboard warriors take about your joy. You are beautiful.

What are some ways that you practice Self care? Let me know down in the comments

NENE IS BACK!! – RHOA Season 10

I am a FAN of RHOA, I have been since season 1. It is my guilty pleasure and the only one of the real housewives franchise that I have watched every season.  Nene herself announced her return on her IG account.

It is being reported that Nene has locked down a 2.5 million contract for season 10. She was one of the highest paid housewives before she left in 2015 with a 1 million contract for that season. Bravo is obviously really excited to get one of the OG back. I have to say I am HERE for it. I have always been a fan of Nene. I am glad that Kim has also signed on for season 10. Again I am here for all of it! I can’t wait to see how Nene, Sheree and Kim interact with Porsha, Cynthia and Kandi.

I

Its being reported that Phaedra will not be returning for season 10. She caused A LOT of drama and had accused Kandi of some serious wrongdoing. At the reunion we found out that what was said was all a lie. Now when Nene watched the reunion she sent out this tweet which to me indicates that she knows Phaedra will NOT be returning for season 10

You can never WIN when you play DIRTY! Girl bye👋🏾 #karma 1 down, 1 to go👊🏾

Phaedra has been fired but Bravo is letting her come back to “apologize” to Porsha for involving her in the disgusting accusations against Kandi. After that is filmed, Phaedra will be done and I am not going to miss her one bit.

I am so ready for RHOA to  return for season 10 to see how all of this unfolds. I know I will be tuning in, will you?
