In the heart of many culturally aware neighborhoods in Atlanta, you will discover numerous creatively decorated public buildings. A myriad of communities in Atlanta utilize blank building space to display their art. This art is used to promote and educate the people of Atlanta of street art. We can thank the awesome folks at Living Walls for that.
Pretty excited about seeing my face on one of my favorite blogs site. Even more excited to be involved in friend Vaughn Dabney’s natural hair documentary, ‘Play With It‘. Remember I said to stay tuned? Well the documentary comes out this Fall. Congrats to Vaughn and much success in everything you do! Check out the teaser below.
Many people tell me that I have really nice skin. I truly appreciate that but it wasn’t always easy. I didn’t have problem skin until college. When it got bad, I got meds from the derm that not only cleared my skin but made it amazingly dewy to the touch. When I felt like my skin was clear enough, I stopped using the meds.
They always say, don’t fix what ain’t broke…or something like that. One day, I decided to see if my meds would still work although I didn’t need it. WELP. I totally jacked up my face. But in one week’s time, I cleared it up again, this time using all natural products.
So anyway, ever since then, I’ve pretty much had clear skin. I’m not really big on makeup so I like to keep my face simple. Over the years, I’ve tried several products and I eventually settled on what works best for my face.
Gone are the days that I just wear a tinted moisturizer to work. Trying to be a grown up now, lol. Granted, I still love my MakeUp Forever foundation, I just refuse to buy a new bottle. I’ve had the same one for THREE years.
My makeup bag looks a little different now. I don’t have the energy to do a tutorial but I will tell you (in order) what I use to achieve my everyday face.
I haven’t forgotten all of you that could not make it to my event due to my last minute planning (on my part). So many of you have said that you would have come if you’d known or had more notice. Very sweet of you. You’re also in luck. I still have goodies from the event that I want to give to you. Of course, as in life, there are rules. But first, what’s inside the bag.
On any given day, my favorite nail color would be nude. I want to say I have over 40 bottles of polish but I rarely wear them. My patience has greatly waned these days. Gone are the times when I would stay at home on a Friday night and give my nails some TLC like I used to. But I love buying polish.
One of my most recent purchases is No Place Like Chrome by Essie. Only once I get back into my groove will I attempt to add designs.
What a fun-filled weekend I had on 7.14! #latepost
I was able to support the lovely Erica of The Fly’s Nest and Jessica of Urben Inventory at their trunk show. Then, I stopped by the Atlanta Street Food Festival for some chow and a little more thrifting.
I’m really big on lashes because I have huge eyes and supposedly long lashes. My eyes are one of my best features so I like to make them pop. On any given day, I’m wearing three different brands of mascara. A friend recently put me on to Maybelline’s Lots of Lashes mascara and boy am I SOLD! It did an amazing job at separating each lash to make them look even more full.
Finally got to see Beasts of the Southern Wild. I highly recommend you seeing that movie! I may or may not have shed a tear or two. You decide.
Woot for my $5 bird necklace find! New fave.
