OOTN/Night Out πŸ’œ

This week I wanted to meet up with my friends and go out to dinner! So I texted all three of them and they agreed to meet up with me Friday! The two of them I haven’t seen in along time so I was really excited to see them! One of them had came down from Jamaica and the other one I went to college with but we haven’t seen each other in awhile so that’s why I wanted this dinner. I also decided to invite one of my good friends, Cami! (Hey girl if you’re reading this, lol). She’s also good friends with the other two girls! When Friday came, we met up at this restaurant called Mugshots! I’ve always wanted to eat here and I finally got to! I’ve always wanted to try their Mac and cheese burger and omg it was so big but so damn good! 

It’s two grilled cheese sandwiches and a beef pattie with Mac and cheese! Y’all…..so damn good! It was worth the money! I couldn’t even finish this! But I ate the leftovers tho, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

I had a hard time finding a outfit so Cami had to help me! Thanks btw! 

I’m wearing a tye dye shirt from this local boutique called Bella Rose! You can also order online from them and I will put the link here! They have the cutest clothes!

I got my jeans from this store called It’s Fashion like two years ago! They’re so comfortable! I love the way they shape my butt! Lol. My platforms are from Torrid! I’m in love with these! They’re so comfortable and don’t hurt my feet at all! 


We we’re literally outside for like 10 mins taking pictures after pictures. πŸ˜‚

Well that’s all for now! Leave a comment below telling me what you did last weekend! I hope you enjoyed this post! 😊

OOTD/Quick Makeup Routine!

So a couple of days ago I had to go to my sister’s senior night for basketball and of course I was in such rush trying to get there on time! So I just had to do something quick with makeup and put on a cute outfit! I did just that and I actually like it! Down below im going give show you what outfit I wore and im going to show you my quick make up look! Before I get right to it im just going to let you know im not a professional at makeup. I literally watch makeup tutorials on Youtube and just learn from that! I have to say, I’ve been getting better! Plus my friend Savannah (hey boo if you’re reading this, lol). She also has helped me with doing makeup so shout out to her! Love you so much! Well im gonna stop ranting and get right to it.

tug-blog-3

My outfit! This is one of my favorite pieces of clothing! Yes, you’re probably thinking why the hell is this chick wearing a damn romper in the fall?! Lol. I live in the South and over in the state I live in it’s still hot as balls, lol. But anyays im wearing a romper from Forever 21 with elephants on it. Im obessed with elephants if you didn’t know! It’s one of my favorite animals! Im also wearing these sandals from Torrid! For accesories im wearing my colorful Lokai bracelet and of course im wearing my big hoops from Forever 21!

tug-blog-6My makeup look! All I did was use my primer, liquid foundation, powder to set my foundation, did my eyebrows, baked under my eyes, put on mascara, put on my lipstick and last but not least spray my face with setting spray! Down below here are the products I used!

tug-blog-8

1.) Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser: $5.94: This product so good! It’s worth the price! I either use this sometimes or use my Smashbox primer! It doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy. If you’re looking for a drugstore primer use this! I promise it works good!

2.) Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Dewy + Smooth: $4.94: Im a sucker for Maybelline beauty products, but this foundation is so bomb! I couldn’t find the matte kind in my color so I had to get this one! It works really well with my skin in my opinion but I’ve been trying to find a high-brand foundation for the longest! If anyone knows a good foundation for oily skin thats high-brand please let me know in the comments below! But I’ve been using Maybelline foundation ever since I’ve been into makeup! I feel like it’s the only foundation that works for me!

3.) Bare Minerals Matte Foundation: $28.50: This product is also amazing! Im not going to go into much detail but if you check out my other blog post called “How My Day Went/Mini Makeup”, look you can read all about how I rave about this product! I reccomend the Matte if you deal with oily skin!

4.) Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: $23.oo: One of the best mascaras I’ve used! Not gooing to go into detail about this product but if you read my other blog posts iv’e talked about this product all of the time.

5.) Kylie Lipkit Kourt K: $29.00 :Im not gonna lie, this is one of the best matte lipsticks I have! I love how it doesn’t over dry your lips! But I still but chapstick on before I put any matte lipstick. Plus if you didn’t know, I love the color purple! I might even do a blog post on all the purple lipsticks I own! I have so many, lol.

6.) Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Setting Spray: $14.00: This product is just….omg just perfect. This is the best money iv’e spent on primer spray! It makes my makeup stay on all day! If you’re looking for setting spray purchase this! I promise it works super great!

I recently been into “baking”. If you don’t know what “baking” means in makeup terms it’s when you apply your foundation on first, then use concealer, then wherever you put your concelar you put your loose powder on or translucent powder on it and let it “bake” for like 5-10 mins. But I honestly don’t even use concelar where I bake. I literally put some loose powder on and just let it sit for 5 mins and I still see a diffrence. Tell me in the comments below if thats what you do when you “bake”.

tug-blog-1

Yes, Im wearing clothes in this picture! I literally only bake under my eyes, lol! When I dust it off I see a big difference!

tug-blog-5

1.) Maybelline Loose Oil- Control Powder: $4.94: This is what I use when I bake! It’s very inexpensive and it gets the job done! I wanna invest in the Laura Mercier powder soon to see if works as good! I heard so many good things about this product. Has anyone ever used it? If so let me know in the comments below!

2.) Real Techniques Beauty Blender: $4.98:When I was shopping at Ulta awhile ago, I stumbled upon this beauty blender. Alot of beauty gurus recommend using this and I wanted to give it a try. I have to say this beauty blender gets the job done! It blends really well and I use it to put the loose powder in the places I bake! You can also get this from Walmart too! Very inexpesnive.

3.) Nyx Tame & Frame Pomade: $6.99: This pomade makes my eyebrows look so much better! My friend Savannah told me to start using this and it works amazing! If you can’t afford the ABH pomade, just purchase this one! Way cheaper and it gets the job done.

4.)L.A. Pro Girl Concealar: $2.99: This is one of the best concealer iv’e ever used!!! This stuff works so amazing! I see alot of girls on Youtube use this and they’ve said nothing but good things about this product! It gets the job done! It’s not heavy and to be honest you don’t even need much of this product to use! A little bit goes a long way! (Savannah told me this and she’s actually right, lol)!

This has to be one of the longest blogs I’ve  written so far! I hope yall enjoyed it! Tell me in the comments below what are your favorite makeup products or tell me your makeup routine! 😊

Crazy College Story: A Fight Broke Out!!! πŸ‘€πŸ˜³

tug-blog-7

During my freshman year of college I saw some pretty crazy things. So I was thinking the other day I should start posting like crazy stories about what I witnessed and what I went through in college. My first semester was fun! I made a couple of friends and I was doing well in my classes. Now my second semester it started to get boring and I was going through a tough time, but im not going to get into that. That’s for another topic that we can talk about later! MyΒ second semester had started and I met this new girl! Her name was Harper (Im not using her real name or any other real names in the story). Β She also had a girlfriend named Rain that played basketball for the college I attended. Rain would always be in Harper’s dorm but they would always argue all through out the day! What was even worse is that Harper’s room was right next to mine so I could hear everything, lol. But at 3 in the morning something woke me up out of my sleep! Im laying in my bed and I hear the wall beat on, chairs slinging, doors slamming, and arguing. Im thinking like should I call the campus police or just mind my own business?! Then I started to think if I were to call the campus police they would both get kicked out of the dorms, so I just was laying there. They kept arguing and I started to realize that they were fighting! They were calling each other whores, bitches, and all kinds of names 😳.This went on for about 15-20 mins. The lady that works in the front desk had to come to the dorm to break them up. I was also pissed about them fighting because I had to be up at 6:30 in the morning! So im laying in my bed just trying to wrap my mind around at what just happend. Im just like these girls were literally fighting, lol! So I had to call my friend after it happend and actually she was up around that time so I gave her all the tea, lol.

The next day I walked passed her room and notice that Harper’s stuff was gone. So I went to my other dorm mates room to see if she could tell me what happen. She said that Harper had got kicked out and Rain was still there. But that was the craziest fight iv’e ever witnessed!

If you ever witness a crazy fight in college or just in general leave a comment down below!

Product Review: ORS Shealicious Scalp Relief

So the other day I went my local Dollar General and I was looking in the hair product isle. While looking I stumbled upon this product. I deal with having a bad dry itchy scalp and I was just like why not trying to see if it works!? It’s really inexpensive! It was only $3.50! Here are the instructions above! First I shampooed my hair (make sure your hair is still wet or at least damp) then when I got the shower I followed the simple instructions above! I poured the avocado and rosemary oils into the creme conditioner and I used the end of my retail comb the mix it up! Y’all this product smells AMAZING. It makes you wanna like bath in it or eat it lol (don’t judge me) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. The consistency is very creamy also, which I think is a good thing. It comes with a lot of conditioner which is good! I applied this all throughout my hair. I used all of the conditioner! On the instructions it says leave on for at least 5-10 minutes. I’m gonna be honest guys I didn’t follow this part of the instructions πŸ™ˆ! I left it on for 30! I do that any type of conditioners. After I left it on for at least 30 mins I washed it out with cold water ( when you have any type of conditioner in your hair I do recommend with washing it out with cold water. It makes your hair more soft). The next morning I woke up and realized I didn’t have any dandruff and my scalp felt relived! I was super happy because I’ve tried all types of conditioners and deep conditioners for my scalp! And it made my hair smell super good and super soft! I give this product 5 stars ladies! It’s worth the money! Oh and they have more than scalp relief in the product. They also have shine booster and moisture lock! Tell me if you ever tried one of those or if you are willing to try! I hoped you liked this review! 😊 

Ootd: Chill Day πŸ˜Œ

Yesterday, I went to go run some errands so I was like I wanna get all cute but then I don’t, πŸ˜‚. Yeah, I know crazy right!? So I was like I’ll do a simple makeup look and try to wear something casual and comfortable and I did just that! I’m wearing a black tank top from Forever 21 and my shorts are from Forever 21 too! I got them last summer if I’m not mistaken. I am also wearing my Chacos! These are my favorite pair of shoes to wear! They’re literally comfortable and durable. They’re a little expensive but it’s worth the money! If you know me of course I gotta rock my big hoop earrings and I’m wearing my colorful Lokai bracelet! 

My makeup! I wanted something cute but simple! And yes, I’m using a snapchat filter! It’s my favorite one haha. I’m wearing NYX Matte Soft Cream Copenhagen. 

Skin Care Routine πŸ˜

Ever since I was in the 5th grade, I’ve dealt with having bad acne on and off. It was worse during my 5th grade year til my sophomore year of high school. It was so bad that I use to have to go to a determologist once a month. They prescribe me with acne face cream and it helped a little. I stoped going and I started trying different drugstore face washes and creams. It helped a little bit then I started to realize the more water I drink, the more my face cleared up. My mom and dad even noticed and I’ve been drinking lots of water ever since! I still use face wash and moisturize though! It helps my face too! I’m gonna tell you what products I use and give you some tips on what I do and use for my face! 😊

In the picture below, if you read my haul from two weeks ago these are the products I use! I use my Biore Baking Soda face wash and Garnier moisturizer(smells like oranges, omg 😍🍊)every single night! It leaves my face feeling clean and looking clean. 

Excuse my ratchetness πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚! (Yes, I just got out of the tub, don’t judge lol) but if you read my haul from about 2 weeks ago you can see I purchased a face brush cleaner! This is the best 8 dollars I ever spent! Yes, only 8 freaking dollars lol. I wore makeup on my face this day and I decided I need to use the brush to get all the makeup off! And it actually works! I love this brush and I try to use it twice or 3 times a week or when I wear makeup that day. But yes, girls or women reading this; I would most definitely purchase one! It’s worth the money! 

Tips about taking care of your skin:

1.) DRINK LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER! 

2.) If you wear makeup! Please make sure you always wash it off or use a makeup wipe! (Baby wipes are good too and cheaper!) if you don’t wipe it off your face will break out! 

3.) Always wash your face or use cleansing pads in the morning! You don’t want to go out in public with a greasy face! (This happens to me before and it was not good, lol)

4.) If you deal with oily skin always try to carry around blotting sheets! Especially during the summer because greasy oily skin is not cute! ( I deal with having oily skin and it sucks ass πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­)

5.) If none of the drugstore face washes or moisturizers do not work for you and you deal with bad acne, try to go to your doctor or a determologist for help 

I hope you enojyed today’s blog post! Leave me your skincare tips down below please. I would love to read them. 

Pamper/Relaxtion Routine πŸ’…πŸΎ

I’ve been super busy these past two weeks and I’m gonna try to start back doing two blog post a week! I’ve been wanting to do a Pamper/Relaxtion routine for awhile now so now that I have time on my hands, why not? I’m gonna show you what products I use below:

From left to right:

1.)Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream: Y’all this stuff smells AMAZING! It smells like sweet candy! Everytime I smell it I want to eat it, haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹. When I get out the shower or when I get out the tub I will apply this on. I don’t use it every night only when I’m pampering or having a relaxing bubble bath.

2.)Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub: This is the best 15 dollars I ever spent on a hygiene product! It smells exactly like the body buttercream (of course πŸ˜‚). I only use this when I shower but I do not recommend using this everyday or putting this on your face. Especially if you have sensitive skin.But other than that it makes your skin feel very smooth! It feels like you have a whole new body! This is one of the best body scrubs I ever purchased besides the Frank Body Scrub. The Frank Body Scrub is also good but it gets super messy. The Soap and Glory one does not at all! Trust me, this body scrub is worth the money.

3.) Soap and Glory Heel Genius Footcream: I suffer from having dry cracked heels. They were so bad, I had to start going to the nail salon to get my feet done. I was paying like 30 dollars just to get them done and that’s ridiculous, so I heard so much about this stuff and decided to give it a try! I try to use it aleast everyday or 3 times a week and when I started doing that my feet started looking different! It makes my feet feel smooth and super soft! It smells good and a little minty to me! It’s pricy but a little bit of this stuff goes a long way! I wanted to put this in my pamper routine because when I use the other products above in the picture I always I apply this on. If you deal with having dry cracked feet use this! I promise it does wonders, lol.

4.)Bath and Body Works Stress Relief Lotion: I love this lotion! The body wash is also great too! I ran out of it awhile ago, but this lotion does some wonders. It reminds me of menthol because of that cool sensation. It smells super good and after you get out the shower or bath tub and rub this all over your body, you feel so much better!

5.)PC Bath Bomb: I recently went to a local soap place and got a couple of bath bombs! They were on sale so I got them! (Well I bought one and my cousin bought the other two so thanks to her lmao!) but anyways I used one and it smelled so good and it made my skin feel soft! They’re the Milk and Honey kind! The best thing about the soap place is that everything is handmade! Yes, I said HANDMADE! This store has lotions, body wash, bath bombs, soaps, and etc! I’m gonna be honest some things are reasonable and somethings just aren’t. That’s my opinion but everything is good quality! I think you can order from her but I’m gonna leave the link here! Bath bombs are good for when you just wanna relax for when you’re in the tub!  http://www.passsoap.com/ Please go look at the site! I promiseall of her soaps and bath bombs literally smell amazing.

6.) Malin + Goetz Clairfying Face Mask: I really love this face mask! At the time I was getting sent BirchBoxes, I had got this in one of the boxes and I just love it! I actually had a sample of the moisturizer and face wash and they were pretty good! But of course I used them all up so all I have left is this face mask which does wonders! When I get out the shower or tub after pampering I would apply this on my face. I leave on for about 15 mins. I would watch a makeup tutorial or read a magazine just to waste time. Then I will wash it off and it leaves my face feeling amazing! I’m not gonna lie it’s expensive for the full price but I would try a drugstore brand. They probably will work exactly the same. But yeah, this particular mask also helped my acne!

Tips for relaxing/pampering:

1.) When im in the tub, I like to take bubble baths during pampering. So if you have body wash, pour a little in your running water and then you should be set. It saves you from buying bubble bath, haha.

2.) While im in the tub relaxing, I love to listen to music! If you have spotify, make a playlist of your favorite music to play while relaxing! or I will just get my iPad and prop it up on something and I would watch makeup tutorials! ( Don’t judge me, lol)

3.) If you want your skin to be super smooth, use baby oil to put in your bath water. I haven’t did this in awhile but I promise it works!

4.) If you want everything to be super realxing, if you have candles I would put them in the bathroom. Then turn the lights off then just play some soothing music! ( I recommend the candles from walmart! They last a good bit and you save alot of money).

Well those are just some extra tips for when you just wanna pamper yourself while in the tub or I guess you can do some these while showering! I hope this helped out! Leave some comments below of what you like to do when pampering! πŸ™‚

Mini Clothing HaulΒ 

Hey guys, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting all week! I’ve been so busy. Everything has been hetic, lol. But I went and did a little shopping this week. Most stores have been having summer sales so I was like why not go check some places out in my area! So I decided to go to this one particular boutique around the area where I live at and omg y’all…she has this 10 dollar rack full of cute summer clothes. I literally got a cute summer dress and a pair of capri jeans! Then 2 days ago I got bored and wanted to go to downtown! So I just went to look into different stores and boutiques and I saw another sale on swimsuits! They went from 5-15 dollars! You honestly cannot beat that! Like that’s a good price! And the swimsuit is name brand! This is the dress I bought! It reminds me of cotton candy and I just love the pastel colors! It was originally 30 dollars but I only paid 10 dollars for it! Can’t beat that! πŸ˜‰


I’m wearing the dress in this picture! I styled it with some light brown sandals and I’m wearing my tye dye Lokai bracelet! And of course I’m wearing big hoop earrings! My favorite! (Excuse my feet, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)


Here are the jeans I bought! I tried to find a original price for these pair of jeans but I couldn’t ! But 10 dollars! I couldn’t pass them up! You can wear anything with this! That’s what I love about them! 


This is a Popina swimsuit! I love the colors and I feel like it fits my skin tone! The top was originally 55 dollars and the bottoms wear 42 dollars! I only had to pay 7 dollars all together for both! The woman at the boutique had a bucket of swimsuits and was trying to get rid of them and I just couldn’t pass up it up! ☺️

Loving Youself/Self-Confidence

img_0415

Loving yourself and having self confidence are really important to me. During my middle school years and couple of years of high school I had trouble loving myself and self confidence. I got bullied really bad during that time so I started to believe what everyone was saying about me. I was called gorilla, ape, fat nose, fat ass, and shit I even got picked on for having a big butt. The kids at school would bully me about the way I walk because I’m peigion toed. I would try not to let all of those things bother me but I’m gonna honest it did.  I remember every time I would get home I would lock myself in the room and cry. I use to just make up all kinds of excuses some days just not to go to school and I even would pray to just have a really good day. I started to let myself go. I just didn’t care what I looked like, what I wore or anything. I was basically depressed and I just had to figure some way to get out of it.

During my 9th grade I started to get tired of going through the same BS over and over and I wanted to fix it. I started to taking up for myself and it worked tbh! The bullying wasn’t so bad anymore and I was okay a little. I wasn’t as happy but okay. Then during the summer I was getting ready to go to the tenth grade I moved schools. It wasn’t because I was bullied it was a personal family problem. I have to say that was actually the best move for my life.

My tenth grade year I really found myself. I was so happy during this time. I started loving myself, caring for myself, and having high self esteem. I made friends at the new school I went to and people were just friendly. I could dress the way I want without getting judge, style my hair the way I wanted too. I would even look at myself in the mirror and say positive things like:”You’re beautiful”, β€œyou’re a strong woman, don’t let anyone test you down”. I started even smiling! I remember I use to just have this anger mean look and never smile. I felt good about my size too! Being a plus size girl, I feel like you get made fun of the most. But I love my shape and idgaf what people even think. Like if you wanna rock a certain piece of clothing, then do it! I love my big thighs,stomach,legs,nose,arms, and most of all my ass! πŸ˜‚ Like who cares! Just be yourself and do you! But when you have positive people around you, you feel so much better about yourself and positive quotes and doing what you love help you too.

img_0276

Loving yourself and self confidence are what define you in my opinion. No man or woman will love you unless you love yourself. Focus on you and do what you love in life. Never let anyone tear you and what you love to do down.  But the most important thing is you cannot give a f@$k. What I mean by that is you can’t let anything or anyone get to you in a negative way. That’s one of the things I live by believe it or not! If you have anything negative or someone that’s negative in your life cut it or them out of it! You’ll feel so much better.

I’m dedicating this to any girl or woman who has been bullied, made fun of, been through depression, or has low self esteem! If you have any questions or comments just leave them down below. 😊
