Its December 5th Friends ! 20 Days till Christmas y'all ! One of my favorite things about Christmas  is White Elephant gift exchanges ! I'll be honest I'm HELLA good at White Elephant Gift Exchanges , my gift is always stolen cuz I keep that good good ! So here are some options so people will like you at this years gift exchange !







For the Girls who look like Me












If you've been around these parts for any amount of time one thing you can count on is my lack of consistency,also the fact that outfits just aren't my thing ! I'm not a tiny cute blogger girl , I'm Black, I'm Plus sized and I'm weird and well girls who look like me don't get shine. It felt pointless and stupid and like I would be trying to make fetch happen but then I realized maybe not. Over the years I've been asked to post blog photos of my outfits and girls have messaged me saying hey I love what you're wearing but I never realized how actually important it was to see people who look like me.

In August I went to a blogger brunch for a beauty brand which I rarely do, and I felt out of place like I always do, even though In reality I was the perfect person to be there. I sat across from a sweet girl named Rosy ! She was immediately sweet and kind and asked if I only blogged about beauty. I said yes and she said " Why arent you blogging clothes !?!" Like it was the biggest of no brainers . Rosy went on to tell me how there was a huge void in the plus size market and that I needed to show my face and gosh dangit she was right !

Rosy immediately asked if she could forward my email to a brand an within an hour I had and email from Plus Size Brand Eloquii saying they loved me and wanted to put clothes on my body ! LIKE WHAT ! So From now on I'm going to make an effort to be seen not because I think I'm so cool but for the girls like me .

This blog will continue to be a space for EVERYBODY and I can't wait to show you all more !




Unboxing 11/8

So I'm not cool enough to have the swipe up button on instagram so I gotta post things here on the blog like a pleeb ! But here is everything from last nights Unboxing on Instagram !





Skincare Basics















          Alright Friends let's talk skin care. The reality is each and every day we are getting older and aging and our skin is the largest organ we have so why aren't we taking care of it ? Well I'm here to get you in shape and tell you the things you should be doing at the BARE minimum !

I come from a skincare house my mom and grandmother for that matter  has ALWAYS taken care of her skin as long as I can remember , I mean does anyone else remember Ponds Cold Creme ?  Speaking of Cold Creme lets talk about the first step in good skincare ... 

TAKE OFF YOUR MAKEUP EVERY NIGHT  ! 

I literally cannot stress this enough you guys and I know you've heard it before but listen to me when I say sleeping with your makeup on essentially keeps your skin from living its best life ... why would you wanna do that !?! Basically sleeping with makeup on keeps your pores clogged keeping your skin from repairing itself properly each night and leading to premature aging .... It's gonna be a no for me DAWG ! I'm probably so obsessive about this because my mom drilled it into my head. My Mom would literally call me in college on a Sunday night to checkTza that I had taken my makeup off ! Mischel is nothing if not on top of things ! As a result of this I could be Drunk as a skunk (Sorry Mom ) and I will take my makeup off ( and shower ) haha and I keep these individually wrapped makeup remover wiped in my glove compartment ( that way they don't dry out ) 

CLEANSE 

You Should be washing your face EVERY DAY if not every day and night !  Taking off your makeup is NOT enough you need to remove your makeup and then cleanse #DoubleCleanse 

EXFOLIATE 

Depending on your skin type how frequently you exfoliate and what kind of exfoliator you will use are going to be different. Personally I use 2 one hard core Exfoliator that is both a physical and chemical exfoliator meaning it had the exfoliator beads while also chemically exfoliating which may often tingle a bit tbh I'm oily so it burns SO good. 

MOISTURIZE 

I'm gonna start by rocking a lot of your worlds with this next statement.... COCONUT OIL IS NOT NOR WILL IT EVER BE A MOISTURIZER ! Coconut Oil sits on the surface of your skin you might as well sleep in drag makeup ( Please Don't lol ) Moisturizer is so important in terms of moisture but in helping to keep skin hydrated so that it doesn't over or under produce oils . SO Coconut oil makes a great hair mask its just not for your face ! 

So this was your crash course next week we will deep dive into products and tools for each skin type and in the coming weeks we will have expert interviews to help you in figuring out what you should be doing in your 20's, 30's,40's and 50's  ! I hope you'll follow along ! 

If you have any specific questions you'd like addressed or wanna know anything slide in my DMs or email beccaashmon@gmail.com ! 


Beauty Review : Newness from Bliss !

Hey friends long time no blog !  Expect LOTS more beauty product reviews ! I will obviously give a detailed reviews but please note the 

"Official Product Ranking System" 

★ - Meh
★★ - Ok Ok 
★★★- Cute Girl  ! 
★★★★- Okurrrr !
★★★★★- YASSSSS !

Now that that's out of the way lets talk product !






So Bliss Beauty the brand you know and love has had a re-brand and shes a REAL CUTE GIRL ! Not only that but she's available at TARGET + the prices are lower ! I'll be honest I 100% purchased these because of the cute packaging ( Kanye  Shrug ).... P.S. We a no longer acknowledging Mr. Kardashian until he comes to his senses lol So I decided to try out two basic products the Makeup Melt and the Oil Free Makeup Removing wipes ! SO here are my thoughts on both !

Makeup Melt 

Ok So I actually really loved this product and am still using it ! I firmly believe that makeup removal is a 2-step process #DoubleCleanse because one step will NOT remove product effectively so makeup melt is a great first step ( you can follow up with a makeup remover wipe or cleanser to get you skin squeaky clean ) but this product does exactly what it says it does ! Your makeup will melt right off so you're not scrubbing your skin till its raw trying to get your face totally clean. I give it  ★- Okurrrr !

Oil Free Makeup Removing Wipes -

These are pretty solid. Not all makeup remover wipes are created equal . They have an adorably cute package, which again why I got them in the first place ! If you're using them with a full face of makeup and haven't pre cleansed you may have to use 2 but that's pretty par for the course with makeup wipes . Overall I give it  ★- Cute Girl  ! 

Hope you've all enjoyed this review and feel free to let me know any other products you'd like to see reviewed in the future !
