Product Review: Bella B Tummy Honey Butter (Stretch Mark Prevention Balm)

Disclaimer: This post contains an affiliate link.

Even though stretch marks don’t have the same stigma about them that they used to have, that doesn’t mean that you necessarily want them on your body. As someone who has had stretch marks on my hips and arms since middle school, I’m familiar with how they look, feel and their way of making you a little more self-conscious in certain types of clothing.

My familiarity with them and my desire to want to wear crop tops during the summer really inspired me to take extra care to protect my tummy from getting any during my pregnancy.

5 Reasons Why You Should Attend The 2017 Mississippi Natural Hair Expo

Thank you to the Mississippi Natural Hair Expo for sponsoring this post. You can purchase tickets to the 2017 expo, presented by CURLS, being held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 here.

When you embark on a natural hair journey, be prepared for it to be one with many twists and turns. From finding the right products to learning all the slang associated with natural hair, you will literally feel like you’re being schooled.

I’ve been natural since April 2011 and I still find myself learning new things about my hair. I’ve tried so many different styles, I’ve experimented with color and I’ve even cut it several times.

(VIDEO) Product Review + Demo: Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Powder

Disclosure: I received this product for free from Influenster to test and share with you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Laura Mercier Cosmetics recently released a new version of their translucent powder in a medium deep shade specifically for medium deep to dark skin tones. Honestly I don’t follow makeup brands much but as and when I was notified that I’d be trying this product out, I was excited.

I’ve tried several different translucent powders and I always have the same problem from all of them – I look like a ghost under the eyes and wherever else I apply the product.

Not cool.

3 Ways To Build Enough Confidence To Wear A Wig

This post has been sponsored. All opinions are my own.

One of my favorite things about being a woman is having the ability to switch up my look whenever and however I want. I can go from long to short hair in seconds, I can test out a new color without risking any damage to my hair and I can easily transform from bouncy curls to sleek strands with the slip of a wig.

Even though wigs are as popular now as they were back in the day, some women still shy away from wearing them.

Product Review: EYES by ToGoSpa Coconut Under Eye Treatment

A couple of months ago I received my first box from Bump Boxes and one of the products that immediately caught my eye was the under eye treatment (click here to read about everything else that was inside). I struggle with dark circles under my eyes and severe puffiness, most of which is genetics, and nothing seems to help reduce either issue.

ToGoSpa offers several variations of their under eye treatments, but the one I used was their Coconut EYES which they’ve coined as “The Tropical Staycation.”
