Weekend Reflections: Freedom Through Forgiveness

Over the past four years, my family has gone through probably what I would consider as one of the most trying times we’ve ever faced.  Without having to mention names and details surrounding this very sensitive issue, I would say that this testing has caused a great division among family members and has strained relationships… and did I mention that it went on for four years?  That’s right.  For four excruciating long years, I didn’t see or speak to many of my...

All Mixed Up: Bayo’s “What’s Your Mix?” Campaign Ad

8 Simple Steps To A 5 Minute Face

I’ve said this before:  Makeup application is an art, much like painting, and your face is your canvas.  Thus, when it comes to putting on my makeup, I need to give myself time to carefully and excellently create my masterpiece… just like any other artist! Unfortunately, it just doesn’t happen that way all the time.  Often times, we are swamped with catching up on our to-do list that the only break we can manage to take in between tasks are the quick run to the...
