This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

It doesn’t matter whether you have 50 minutes or 5 minutes to apply your makeup – you should always take the time to prep your canvas to achieve the best result possible. You CONTINUE READING
Neutrogena announced today that Emmy nominated actress (and my homegirl) Kerry Washington has joined the brand’s current roster of talent. Smart move, right? I mean...just look at this goddess's face!
Not only will Kerry be one of the faces for Neutrogena - but for the first time ever, she will also serve as a “creative consultant” to the brand, sharing CONTINUE READING
As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING
