Get the Look: Jill Scott at the Premiere of Get On Up

Jill Scott Get On Up Premiere NYC

Jill Scott is one of my favorite singers of all time.  I don’t think I would have made it through grad school without her musical wisdom.

As someone who loves only a minimal amount of variety in their beauty routine, I am a firm believer that one can never have too many neutral eyeshadows and lipsticks/lipglosses in their collection.

Mani of the Week: Featuring Jinsoon and Nail Rock

Jinsoon Kookie White with Nail Rock

The white manicure is all the rage right now.  While I would want nothing more that to rock a clean white manicure, it is a bit of a challenge because of the length of my nails. If I cut my nails down a bit I could confidently wear an all white polish but as they [...]

Summer Time Favorites: My Skin Care Travel Essentials

Skin Care Travel Essentials

Packing skin care products for travel has never been easier…at least for me. When TSA first instituted the 3 fluid ounce rule where all products had to fit into a tiny ziplock bag, people scrambled to find appropriate sizes of their current skin care products. Skin care fanatics the world over were pissed! No one [...]
