body-and-hand-lotionsHappy Friday beauties,

Thanksgiving is creeping upon us; and while it’s hard to believe the year is almost over, there’s no other feelings greater than celebrating the holidays festivities with loved ones. I know many of you are preparing for a Thanksgiving celebration; and whether you’re planning on spending time with family, friends, or alone, I wish you all a joyful moment.

That been said, when it comes to what to gift the host of the day, I want you to do something different than flowers or a bottle of wine this year. Not that there’s anything wrong with flowers or wine. In fact I love them :-), but there’s always room for a change. Spicing things up a little bit isn’t actually a bad idea, and your thanksgiving host will hug you a little tighter for thinking about her self-care.- With no further ado, let’s take a look at these 10 beauties gifts that will sure put any host or anyone for that matter (including yourself), in a festive and lovely mood.

4- La Mer. The Lips Balm


Let’s face it. If you are to gift that special person a lip balm, it has got to be a luxurious one. One that makes her think about how kind and generous you are, anytime she applies it and feel her dry lips transformed into more hydrated and kissable lips. Right?! Right! Thinner than any other area of the face, the lips are virtually defenseless against subtle changes in wind, temperature, and dryness; thus requiring special attention.

The Lip Balm is a luxurious and intensely reparative formula that works on contact to soften roughness, relieve discomfort, and help rejuvenate seriously dry lips. A potent concentration of La Mer’s nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™ renews the delicate lip area while a patented Lip Lipid Complex delivers moisture and strengthens lips’ moisture barrier to help prevent further damage. It’s flavored with cool, refreshing mint.

6 – Footmate System


Foot care can be a daily challenge, but this podiatrist-recommended system makes it easy to maintain healthy tootsies while you shower. The wide, gentle inner bristles massage your tender soles, while the stiffer outer bristles smooth rough skin and calluses, all the while stimulating blood circulation. Shaped to cradle the foot, the contoured bristles offer an invigorating massage and extra cleaning power for the bottoms and sides of your feet (including the often-neglected areas between the toes), without having to bend over.



7 –  Red Flower – The rose Renewal


Just a few moments to connect with yourself in the morning or evening can be transformative. Well+Good x Red Flower co-created this powerful, beautifying ritual to inspire a space for self-care in three luxurious steps.

The Rose Renewal will help activate your senses, melt away stress and illuminate your skin with the healing vibrations of rose quartz crystal and damask rose.

8- Ultimate Sleep Kit



Moonlit Skincare is dedicated to overnight skincare and sleep wellness. At night, the skin’s protective hydrolipid barrier weakens, allowing for greater penetration of ingredients. Up to 75% of the Human Growth Hormone is secreted during deep sleep. HGH is essential for skin tightening, cell renewal, bringing new cells to the surface and pushing the old ones out (think age spots, scars). Designed to sync with the science of sleep, Midnight Shift Overnight Facial Oil is dedicated to promote a simple and effective regimen that delivers results overnight.

I absolutely love all the products in this box. The Vanilla Buttercream Solid Bar smells divine! The Cinnamon and Citrine Wellness candle was a mood setter! it added a sweet and warm feeling to my quiet time!

Wink Wink!

Get Soft & Hydrated Skin With Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus Winter Challenge

Soft-and-moisturized-skin-careFor living in Minnesota for over a decade now, I’ve come to make peace with the idea that Winter will always be what is, for us Minnesotan, bitter Cold, freezing and harsh on our skin! That’s why, if you live in Minnesota (or in the midwest), upping your beauty game during this time of year to have a moisturized, well-hydrated, soft and supple skin is a MUST! That’s the reason why I have teamed up with Olay to join their Winter Skin Challenge – And I think you should too 🙂 

All you need to do, is use the Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus to achieve your softest, most moisturized, and most hydrated skin all winter. 

Having a beautiful skin that looks and feels great in winter isn’t impossible; and to achieve this baby-soft skin we all yearn for, I have been using my Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus religiously, but just one use was enough for me to notice a more radiant, and more moisturized skin. These luxurious body washes have made shower times “pampering sessions” for me, and it’s a real struggle trying to keep the kids’ hands off em. Oh, and isn’t it lovely when your significant other love the smell of a body wash you’re using and compliment you on it!?  (The opposite does happen too, unfortunately… Ugh) 

Olay-moisture-ribbons-Plus The scents are divine and it’s a total bonus that they are therapeutic. They are formulated with a deep conditioning ingredients that includes Shea butter which is a great cleansing and moisturizing ingredient, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth as soon as you leave the shower. I usually use the Comforting Lavender scent in the evening. It is so delightful going to bed with baby soft and smooth skin with a a relaxing and comforting aromatherapeutic scent. The Olay Moisturize Ribbons Plus also comes in Manuka Honey, which smells so good and refreshing and is indulgent and rich with every wash. This scent has quickly become my favorite, plus we all know the amazing benefits honey has on skin.

Winter-skin-and-beauty-careIn all honesty, I have never been disappointed with any of the Olay products I’ve used in the past; and the Olay Moisturize Ribbons Plus is another successful launch of the brand! I’m thrilled to be part of this challenge as the Olay Moisture Ribbons plus is doing wonders to my skin.

Would you like to have a noticeable soft and more moisturized skin at just one use? Get the exact same products I’m using HERE or HERE now, and join me in the Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus Winter Skin Challenge! 😉

How to have a glowing skin in Fall

Top-black-beauty-bloggersHello loves!

The weather may feel like we are still in summer, but Fall is definitely here! When you think “Fall”, do you happen to think about skin care especially for your face? I know there’s no definite season when you should take serious care of your skin, but for me, I feel like with winter around the corner, I have to put in the extra work! The dry and cold air in the Midwest is just too harsh not to think about protecting your skin. I have tried a few skin care products from drugstores to the brand names and I can say that I came to understand a few things about skin care routine.


  • Cleansing: Cleansing is a very important part of your skin care routing. Did your mom yell at you countless times to wash your face everyday?  Mom was right! Washing your face is critical for a healthy and good looking skin. It helps eliminate waste and toxins. Find a great face cleanser that will not dry out your face and help support its regularity. – Take a look at some cleansers below.



  • Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!  Even when you have an oily to combination skin you still have to keep your skin moisturized! Find a good moisturizer, possibly with SPF for daytime and apply on your face daily. You can also have a night time moisturizer or serum. A good night moisturizer or serum will hydrate and reveal natural radiance in the morning.



  • Exfoliating: Exfoliating your skin will take you a long way; and your skin will thank you for it. You want to remove the dead skin on your face at least once a week.


  • Hydrating: I know you’ve heard this many times, but yes, your skin needs to be hydrated! Drinking a good amount of good old dear water is the best and most efficient way to keep your skin always hydrated; and drinking water doesn’t have to be “painful” anymore. You can opt for fruits or herbs-unfused water to make it more bearable if you’re not a big fan of plain Jane water. 🙂 Another way to keep your skin fresh and hydrated is spraying facial water on your face when needed.


  • Face Mask: From pore-cleansing clay masks that lift oil and impurities to super-hydrating sheet masks that flood skin with essential moisture, face masks are an essential part of your beauty regimen and  each treatment can reveal a healthy and glowing complexion.
  •  Sunscreen: Sunscreen is not optional. This is a myth in the black community; and I hope everyone gets to know and understand that black or not, sunscreen is very important for the ultimate health of the skin. Let’s educate ourselves on the matter. –  Experts say even in colder seasons, we need to protect our skin against the Ultra Violet rays which can be pretty harmful even when the sun is not out.

    Well, I hope you take something away from this post. Stock up on your favorite moisturizers, and drink up! 

    What are  your favorite Fall beauty staples, and what skin care routine do you adopt ? Do share.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
