Bre(anna), Trenae, and I, or known as our group iMessage name, 3LiveCrew, visited Dallas, Texas this past week. And we had a BLAST! This was our first time traveling together since becoming best friends in 2014 and outside of trips to our alma mater. So I was excited when a Dallas based natural hair company, Bella Kinks, announced their third annual natural hair expo.
Below are details and pictures of our experience together!

Friends, how many of us have them?
I’m not just talking about any type of friend or having friends for the sake of it, but how many of us have dependable, accountable, and attentive friends? Friends who check you when you’re wrong, support and encourage your dreams no matter how wild, make you laugh, and make the worst of times feel like the world isn’t ending.
If you do, that’s great! If not, I’ll take on that role for you!
Social media is awesome and exhausting all in the same breathe. In wake of everything happening in the world - cue the whole madness of 45’s “presidency and administration,” NFL protests, and this ludicrous suspensions over social media, i.e. ESPN’s Jemele Hill - we ALL need friends! Friends to help keep our mental health intact and encourage positivity daily when everything seems contradictory.
Reading and hearing so much about Jemele, I thought about support systems and friendships. With all the backlash she is facing, I see how everyone, her co-host, friends, and supporters, on and off social media, is supporting her and her stance of freedom of speech. But it made me think - do I or would I stand for my friends like this through adversity, high-proud moments, and everything between.

The beauty market expands more and more each day. With over 100+ brands to choose from, it can sometimes be overwhelming to choose what will work, especially with beauty tools like make-up brushes and sponges. A brush, sponge, or other types of applicators are needed for different products, such foundation, concealer, highlighter, eyeshadow, and more.
I started seriously doing my make-up in 2015, learning how to get a good beat before my college graduation. So I am no expert; i’m just a girl who loves and has a huge fascination over makeup. It started with YouTube (one of the BEST ideas ever), product buying, and trial and error.
I want to share my top tools for how I apply my foundation, concealer, powder, and eyeshadow - pretty much the only products I wear needing tools (conturing isn’t for me YET, but baby steps.) This is not a sponsored post; I purchased all of the tools, from stores like Ulta, Sephora, Target, and Marshalls, and love how they work for me. All photos of the tools are at the end of this post.
This lifestyle and beauty blog - created for twentysomething millennial women - inspires, empowers, and adds moxie to womanhood. Women will have a space to learn how to flourish from past mistakes and daily issues, while gaining insight on other topics.
