Taking care of your hands and nails is a must for many women like myself. Often times, a chance to go get a salon Manicure just never comes with the busy life we may lead. Plus, the visits can get pricey trying to keep up with that lux nail life. So, I Opt for doing my nails at home. Also, doing my nails at home is a destresser and allows for needed me time.

Recently, I have come across the best nude nail polishes for women of color. I have been on the hunt for beautiful nude shades to compliment my chocolate skin tone for many years. Now, the hunt has come to an end with Sally Hansen. I was sent shades from their Color Therapy line called “Make My Clay” and “Chai on Life” to test out. I was so surprised that they ended up being outstanding nude tones. I really liked how the polish applied too. It was not streaky at all, two coats will do you here. Drying time is within seconds also! 

In addition to the polishes, I was also sent the top coat. I am so in love with the top coat! Not only does it add that high gloss salon finishing touch to your home mani! but it aids in keeping it chip free. Awesome right!

Over all, I truly enjoy wearing the two colors on my nails. They really give a polished look to your nails in my opinion. Do you like nude nail colors? Want to check out the polish shades that were mentioned? You can find them and other colors in the Sally Hansen Color Therapy line at your local drugstore or wherever Sally Hansen products are sold.

I am a huge juice lover. I like to drink it at any time of the day. However, I find that many juice blends just have a bit more sugar and other things that I don’t want in my juice beverages. Since I am a diabetic, I really have to pay very close attention to the things I take into my body (Living a healthy diabetic life takes a lot of dedication to self). So my hunt for juices that were 100% started.

Two brands that I found to be 100% fruit juice were Beetology and Ripe Craft Juice. They are both phenomenal! They are truly juice, nothing more, nothing less. I love that they are both cold pressed juices. What is cold pressed juice you ask? Well, it’s actually a process in which the juice is extracted. Cold pressed juice is produced by using what is known as a ‘masticating juicer’. This juicer uses a hydraulic press that squeezes the juice from the fruit or vegetable. The masticating juicer crush the ingredients in order to extract the greatest quantity of juice possible without compromising the nutrient quality, because it will not generate as much heat to significantly affect the juice like traditional juicing methods can. Once the juice is made, it’s bottled, sealed, and placed in a chamber that fills with water. Pathogens are destroyed by imposing a great amount of pressure. This allows cold pressed juices to remain not only drinkable but nutritious and flavourful for up to a few weeks.

Beetology 


Beets can be very beneficial to our overall health. These burgundy gems help boost your energy, aid in weight loss, supports cleansing and detoxing, plus they have anti-inflammatory properties. They’re even known to improve blood flow and help lower blood pressure. Beetology™ has delivered on a very flavorful juice that allows us to smile at the sound of beets. Just from the the word beet, I was expecting a juice that would have me gagging. I know I’m not the only person that has this reaction. However, I was pleasantly surprised and so were my taste buds! I enjoyed just about every juice flavor from their line. Beetology™ is dedicated to the art of creating delicious beverages and foods from one of nature’s most nutrient dense vegetables and the finest organically grown fruits. Their beverages contain no more than five ingredients. All five of their offerings are 100% non-GMO, U.S.D.A. Certified Organic, and Certified Fair Trade. The juice blends contain no preservatives, additives, artificial colors, or flavors. They are also non-soy, non-dairy, and certified kosher, making them perfect for anyone, any time. They are very refreshing with just the right amount of sweetness to them. The beet juice married very well with the fruit juice choices the brand uses in their products. Beetology has turned my frown into a smile with it’s delicious beet blend juice. I’m now a loyal customer!

Ripe Craft Juice 


New Haven, Connecticut based brand, RIPE Craft Juices was created to redefine the consumer’s expectations of real fresh juice. So their process was simple, to start with the best fruits and vegetables, use the absolute minimum in processing, and offer a juice that surpasses all others in freshness, taste, and nutrition. These juices a very fresh tasting. I enjoyed all four juices. They are not very sweet, there is a bit of bitterness that hits your taste buds. But, it’s not overpowering to where you can’t enjoy and appreciate the natural freshness from this juice brand. These juices are also Gluten Free, non GMO, never from concentrate, using fruit and vegetables that are 100% traceable.

Eyewear can say a lot about a person without them ever uttering a word. It’s a lot like the effects that fashion outfits have when we look at the person wearing them. They give you a look into the persons personality. Plus, a stylish pair of eyewear can truly pull a look together. 
It’s that time of the year where we are pulling out the shades more and more. I have Always been a lover of a nice pair of shades. However, I never had any of my own. I guess it’s because I wear prescription eyeglasses and I figured it would be too much of a hassle to get. Then on the other hand purchasing them would not be cheap as I have astigmatism. I know before you say, Why don’t you get contacts? They don’t make them in colors for folks with my type of astigmatism any more. Yes, I hate it! I really want to get some contacts, wanted some where I could change my eye color. Bummer right! Then I can across Eyewear Insight and I was so excited to find them.

Eyewear Insight is an online company that provides stylish affordable eyewear. You can get prescription or non prescription glasses from them. They carry prescription eyeglasses including computer glasses, reading glasses, prescription sunglasses, bifocals and progressive lens, as well as non-prescription or clear eyeglasses. You can get them in your choice of rimless glasses, full rim glasses, half rim glasses or with clip-ons. The company even offers polarized lens (for safety glasses or for kids glasses), transitional or photocromatic lens (darken with sunlight, lighten indoors) and all the different coatings that can make your eyeglasses special. All brought to you at the best price around. All orders include free anti-scratch coating, free anti-reflective, free microfiber cleaning cloth, free protective case, free UV coating and $5.95 shipping.

Eyewear Insight is dedicated to bringing to you the finest optical quality with a guarantee that they will take any eyeglasses back, no questions asked (minus shipping cost) as long as it is in the original condition that you received it in. Amazing right! 

Eyeglasses are a great way to boldly accessorize any outfit. Whether you need them or just rocking them for fun, especially when you have a few stylish pairs on your dresser. But, glasses can really get expensive! At least they were, until I found Eyewear Insight! Their selection is huge and filled with trendy glasses that are super affordable!

I picked up the Halle B cateye sunglasses. Cute right? I absolutely adore them. I’m all for animal print, as it brings the sexy out in you. They offer a perfect flattering shape with the touch of animal print flaring out from the sides. These are definitely for a Diva with style! These beautiful shades tie together an outfit, giving it an elegant polished look. 


Once you find your perfect frames in Eyewear Insight’s amazing selection, you can customize each pair to your liking. I am so in love with my new sunglasses. Give this company a go, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect pair (or two, three) for yourself!

We all want to achieve the look of a flawless beat face. But sometimes our skin issues make it hard for us. This is where color correcting can come into play as a technique that can help if you are suffering from certain skin problems. Hard Candy has come out with a new line of color correction products to aid in addressing different skin issues. If you have never tried color correcting like myself, Hard Candy products are a great place to start.


Hard Candy sent me there Cushion Wonder (cream with built-in sponge), Radiant Primer (Lavender), and Expert Stick (Yellow) to try. I like all of them, but I really liked the Cushion Wonder and Radiant Primer. These two products addressed skin issues that I wanted to correct. The coverage was very good and they prolonged the wear of my makeup. Each of these are available in six different shades that cater to all skin tones.

Radiant Primer 

The primer is your go to for all over correcting. Just pea-sized amount is all you need to cover and brighten your whole face. This primer is packed with glycerin, which pulls moisture out of the air and deposits it into your skin. No more dry crack looking makeup here! You don’t have to fret over your base makeup feeling cakey over this primer either, as it asks as a second skin by melting into your skin quickly.

Cushion Wonder

This is a pretty good concealer for dark circles and spots on your face. It’s very lightweight and blending is a breeze to even out your skin. After you achieve your desired coverage, set it with power and proceed with your next step. 

Expert Stick

This stick goes on very smoothly and will not tug at your skin while applying. Once you blend it out with your finger or your favorite blending tool, it transforms into a powder-like finish that mattes the skin. It’s great for oily skin sufferers by keeping shine to a minimum.

How to Color Correct

If acne, rosacea, or an uneven skin tone are what you want to cover, you should reach for the green, which will neutralize redness. If you have sunburn, then yellow will minimize it for the day. Pink and lavender (depending on your skin tone) will lend your complexion a natural-pop of radiance. If dark circles a big issue for you, then peach or orange will be your new bestie. Too much info to remember, no worries! You’ll find purpose of each is clearly printed on the packaging. You can also mix and match these colors to target specific concerns that you have as well.

Overall, I’m loving these new color correction products from Hard Candy. I fell that really aid in helping you to achieve a very flawless beat face. Everything in the Hard Candy Color Correct collection is available exclusively at Walmart.
