Swatches ~ Tarte Tartelette Palette

Tarte Tartelette Palette

My photos doesn't do justice to the Tarte Tartelette palette! I've seen photos over the net of swatches but I couldn't find any on #woc.  So, on my next trip to Sephora, this palette was definitely on my radar.  I took some time swatching it and what I loved about this palette is that it's an all matte palette, not one shimmer in tow.

Lifestyle ~ Himalayan Salt Lamps for Anti-Aging, Healing and Longevity

Himalayan Salt Lamps have been a part of my lifestyle since I started my Spiritual journey in 2008.  That was the year that I retired from my 20yr career as a Flight Attendant.  I had been around the world more times than I could remember experiencing more nationalities and religions than I could count, and this experience has left me with a profound quest of wanting to learn more about the one thing that we all had in common..... God.

Beauty ~ Beautiful Concealers In My Arsenal for Women of Color

I didn't start using concealers until I reached the ripe age of i'm in my mid 50's and let's just say, I don't really need them but I like how they enhance the look of my eyes.  There seems to be a wide variety of concealers from high-end to low-end in a variety of shades for African American and women of darker skin tones.  Over the last 5yrs, i've seem to have collected quite a bit. Some I have replaced due to the fact that I seem to keep reaching for them repeatedly.  Below are my swatches and how I feel about each one.

Beauty ~ Simple Human 6.5" Mirror Review + Video

I am so in love with this Simple Human Mirror which I purchased directly from their website.  After watching a few Youtube videos and reading about it online, I decided to take the plunge.  It's small, seamless, elegant and very very bright.  I ordered the 6.5 inch mirror that comes with 7x magnification.
