Mani of the Week: Featuring Tom Ford Black Cherry

Tom Ford Black Cherry

Lancer The Method Body Nourish Review

Keeping the skin below my neck moisturized is a major job. It actually takes a village  just to look presentable let alone halfway amazing.

Big Bold Lipsticks That Are Perfect for Fall

Iman Cosmetics - Black Brandy

Over the last year my lipstick game has gone from ‘meh’ to ‘major!’ I’ve always bought lipsticks but I would put them on and almost immediately declare them ‘too much.’  Before you start thinking I’m crazy, allow me to explain;  I’m 5’11″ tall  with lips that are well north of small.
