Product Review: Black Radiance True Complexion Creme Contour Palette

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a makeup guru. I love beauty products and I love filming and sharing my routines but I still need practice in getting my makeup to look exactly how I want it to. I’m also very cost-conscious and cannot rationalize spending lots of money on makeup, therefore I’m a little limited in product selection.

Nevertheless, I needed some new products so I headed to my local Walgreens.

Codenames: Deep Undercover Is An Adults-Only Game Night Must-Have

Even though I’m only two and a half months into the parenting game, I’ve already learned that the stories about never having “me time” are very much real. Nobody wants to babysit a newborn so as and when my mother offered to watch Marley while we had game night with some friends at our favorite hang out spot, I immediately took advantage of it!

Some friends and I made our way to Hops & Habanas, a local beer and cigar bar located in the heart of Jackson’s Fondren area. We picked up chips, queso and pico de gallo from Babalu and grabbed our favorite beers before heading to the cabana…but what’s game night without a game that brings on the laughs, jokes and unforgettable moments?

One of the major changes I’ve made in the household and personal care products that I purchase is only choosing those that are sulfate-free.

In this post I’ll be sharing with you two products that have helped take the worry of whether or not I’m making good purchasing decisions as and when it comes to living a healthier lifestyle.

The Jessica Diaries: Everything Is Different

Everything is different since I became a mom. Literally, everything.

From the way I think about life and my relationships with others to my daily routine and what I give my attention to, every aspect of my entire existence is new to me. Marley is only two months old so I’m still observing, learning and adjusting to all that comes with becoming a parent and raising a family of your own. It’s hard not to talk about it.

How I Use The DockATot For Safe Sleeping

Before I had the slightest clue that I was pregnant somehow or another I came across the DockATot. I remember thinking that it was the cutest little thing and such a clever invention. A few months after discovering that I was expecting my first child (I guess the universe was preparing me mentally for the news) the DockATot was at the top of my list of must-have baby items.
