Dear Mr. President,
Thank you for your service, for breaking down barriers and for remaining the man I voted for in the last two elections. I remember watching the preliminaries in 2008 & knowing you had a spark so special that I wasn't sure the American people were ready to embrace it. I was overcome with emotion as I watched a piece of history take place before my very eyes. The title of the first Black president must of been a heavy burden to carry in a country that doesn't always accept change. But your presence & intellect demanded respect even in the face of adversity. You remained graceful & displayed a true level of class throughout your terms. Thank you for earning the job & showing up. Showing us that hard work really does pay off & that anything is possible. Your accomplishments cannot be debated as they are embedded in our history & it was all done without a whisper of a scandal. I may have not always agreed with every bill that was passed, but I always saw the vision. The greater good each decision represented & how it would mold the next generation. Thank you for the corny jokes throughout the years, the feel good moments, connecting with the people, for keeping your playlist lit, your bromance with Biden, allowing us to fall in love with your beautiful family & for being exactly who you said you were. A Change We Can Believe In . You will be missed #obama

Be the change you want to see in the world . Let's start the New Year by spreading more love & bringing an end to cyberbullying. So proud to be a part of the @tartecosmetics campaign & thank you for bringing awareness to an often forgotten issue. Social media changes lives, connects people all around the world and inspires so many of us to dream bigger. But by opening up we leave ourselves open to be judged, ridiculed and laughed at. But it doesn't have to be that way. Change starts with us.
#pressplay Peel Off Lippies
I found these babies on Amazon a few weeks ago & decided to give them a try.
Here are my thoughts.
They are thick & annoying to achieve a perfect lipline since the product moves around a lot & stick to the brush.
Make sure your lips are moisturized before applying, it will just draw more attention to your lips if they are hella dry.
Drying time is about 7-10 minutes
The product did "stain" my teeth a little but was easily removed.
The concept is pretty cool, since u don't have to worry about reapplying or cracking of liquid lipsticks especially during the winter months.
I wore it for about 4 hours and it seemed to hold up well, but did fade slightly throughout the wear.
It's not a product that I love or hate, but the difficulty with application made it something I won't be reaching for often. Have you guys tried them? Yay or Nah?

Here's the breakdown After securing my hair under my dark bob. I applied a foundation a few shades lighter to give my skin a colder look. Using a fair toned concealer to highlight the center of my face & setting everything with powder to ensure a matte look. A sultry,black smokey eye really gave some extra depth to my eyes. I lined my waterline with a white pencil to open them up, while keeping my lower lashline pretty bare aside from smoking out the outer edges. This look was paired with a muted pink metallic lip & a cool toned contour. I popped in some light blue contacts to complete the vamp effect. & Viola!!! Thanks for watching babes.
I always get asked what my fav facial cleanser is. I've been using the @urbanskinrx Cleansing Bar on & off for the past 3 years, however I always come back to this one. It's gentle enough for everyday use but still removes all traces of makeup. I have combination skin...oily in the summer & normal/dry in the winter. My skin is also sensitive & breaks out with the slightest change of anything. I basically have the most complicated skin ever . After testing out a few other daily facial cleansers (& my skin going through its ups and downs the last few months). I'm finally back to using my favorite. My skin is almost back to normal & my hyperpigmention is steadily fading . #skincare#urbanskin
