Magical Things Happen When You Binge-Read These Jenny Han Novels



When is the last time you read a good young adult contemporary fiction series? If you would have asked me this a couple of years ago I would have stared at you blankly, wondering how long it had been since I had. As someone who mostly kept up with urban fiction as a young adult, I barely paid attention to the YA genre. But as I have gotten older, my tastes in books have expanded to various genres. And every time I need to find a sweet escape within the pages of a book, I find myself immersed in YA Fiction.

5 Lipsticks Every Woman Should Own


I don't know about you guys, but I spend  a lot of time finding the perfect lipstick. If I'm planning to go out for dinner with the hubby, I'm contemplating what lipstick should I wear. Girl's night out--what lipstick should I wear? Networking with some pretty dope peeps? You get the idea. While some women plan the perfect outfit, hair and or shoes for an upcoming event, I  like to plan my makeup as well. And since certain lipsticks have the power to give me an instant mood boost, I like my lipstick to be fitting for any given occasion.

In today's post I present the idea of keeping five lipsticks in rotation at all times. Yes, ladies. Five. That way you will have a nice starting line-up of lippies to wear no matter the scenario. And since we're categorizing our lipsticks according to mood, I will tell you about five lipsticks that I believe every woman should own, according to how they make you feel when you're wearing them.

REVIEW | nuNAAT Garlic Magic

I'm always on the lookout for the best hair care line---you know, products that will give us consumers a full healthy head of thriving and luxurious hair. I mean, aren't we all? The endless aisles of shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments, and styling aids prominent in every superstore are the proof. And while I will say that my days of being a product junkie are no more, I can admit that I'm tempted every now and again to try something new. A few months back, I started experiencing breakage and dry, lifeless hair. In an attempt to improve my hair health, I trimmed my hair to shoulder length (once again) and began to take an assessment of my hair care regimen. During this time, I was given an opportunity to try the nuNAAT Garlic Magic Line, formulated with garlic extract to promote stronger, healthier hair. 

Styling Idea | Floral + Denim

Sometimes on beautiful spring days like today the temperature is JUST RIGHT--you know, when the sun is beaming brightly and there's a slight breeze that makes everything perfect, and flowers in vivid hues can be seen blooming all around you. On days like this, I want to put on a pretty floral a-line dress, some strappy sandals (or wedges) and highlight my cheekbones to the heavens! It's only right.  

Then there are days where I almost want to put on that dress but I realize that the stubble is growing back on my legs and I don't even feel like shaving them in the shower. I just might opt for those cute, comfortable jeans that flatter my curves instead. Lol. So for those particular days, I decided to share this styling idea with you guys. With the right floral blouse, denim jeans, and heels, I feel like I can take on the world! Add a cute crossbody, fab accessories, and the right beauty products and I just might feel invincible!
For more details on this particular look, be sure to check it out on Polyvore!

Books | Spring Reading List

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday to share Ten Books on my Spring TBR list.

Please tell me I'm not the only one, guys!

Below are the books on my tentative list. Any of them are subject to change--but as of now, I think I have a pretty solid list.
