OURS. by Blackjoy Subscription Box ๐Ÿ’œ

I recently collaborated up with OURS. by Blackjoy to do a review on their subscription box. This subscription box contains hair, skin, health, and beauty products. But what I love most is that these items are from black owned businesses and companies! Super cool right?! I was sent the October box and it came with so many goodies that you can use everyday! This is one of the best black owned subscription boxes I have honestly seen so far and i’m loving the products!

black-8This is what the box looks like when you first get it! It’s durable and not cheap material either!

blaxk-1 When you open the box the products are all wrapped in tissue paper and it comes with a card describing the goodies you received. Loving this packaging!

  1. Herb N’ Eden Lavender & Rosemary Soap: Above on the right, I got a bar of soap! This soap smells so amazing. Soon as I opened the box that’s all I could smell! I can tell right off the bat that it will be soothing. This soap can also help with your mental activity, blood circulation, pain, and your respiratory problems. It’s safe to use on your face also because it treats acne!
  2. Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Shampoo and Enhancing Smoothie: If you have read my hauls or my haircare routine post you know that i’m a sucker for anything by Shea Moisture! I recently used the shampoo and it left my hair smelling great and amazing! I know my girls out there with natural curly hair love these products, lol. The enhancing smoothie is my favorite by them! This product keeps my hair in place all day and it smells like something tropical! You don’t even really need much because a little goes a long ways.
  3. KUVIT Beauty Girl Bye Eye Shadow:When I first looked at this eye shadow I was just so amazed! I love makeup and i’m so happy this came in the box! It’s a bronze color and it’s so pigmented! You can wear this eye shadow to the club or even at work lol!
  4. Ushindi22 Earrings: These earrings are so beautiful to me! They remind me of African culture if that makes sense, lol. I feel like you can style these with any type of style! Especially with like a casual outfit! I can’t wait to wear these soon!
  5. Honey Pot Feminine Wash: Ladies, now you know we have to stay super fresh in the private area and i’m so happy this product came in the box. I’ve been using Summer’s Eve Feminine Wash and I can’t wait to try the Honey Pot one! Honey Pot is plant based and it also helps with your PH balance. It prevents you from infections such as yeast or bacteria! Super good for your private part!
  6. Shea Moisture Strengthen and and Grow Sample Pack: I have the full size of deep conditioner and I love it so much! I honestly cannot wait to use the shampoo and leave in conditioner. I know it will make my hair feel super soft!

I hope you enjoyed my review on the OURS. by Blackjoy subscription box! I want to thank the company for collaborating with me! All opinions are my own.

Crazy College Story: A Fight Broke Out!!! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ณ

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! Myย 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). ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜ณ.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!

Pamper/Relaxtion Routine ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿพ

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚). 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Things Iv’e Been Loving

I did a little shopping these past few months and here are some products and other items that I lovedBlog 1

1.)Bonita Impression of Ari by Ariana Grande ( Can be purchased at some stores, Ebay) $3.99; This perfume smells exactly like the Ariana Grande perfume! My cousin had it and I was just like I have to have this because it’s way cheaper and I don’t wanna pay a ton for the Ariana Grande perfume. I tried to find this perfume at my local Factory Connection and they sold out fast so when I went to Florida last week I found it and had to purchase it! It smells like something sugary mixed with lavendar to me! I love it and it lasts on you all day! I promise it’s worth the money.

2.) Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In-Conditioner ( can be purchased at local drugstores, Walmart, local beauty stores) $5.99; This product is literally AMAZING. This product helps moisturizes my hair and makes it super soft! Ever since I started wearing my real hair i’ve been using this! I love the consistency of it. It smells good and it’s a little thick but it gets the job done! I recommend this product to anyone with relaxed hair.

3.)She Concealar ( I got this product at a beauty supply store in Florida) $2.49; I needed some new concealar so I just picked this up from the beauty supply store because it was cheap and wanted to try it.It’s great for the price, but I would recommend getting the L.A. Girl Concelar instead. It gets the job done though.

4.) Magazines!!!(Seventeen, Disfunkshion, and Jones) (Can be purchased at Barnes and Nobles, Walmart) One thing people don’t know about me is that I love to read magazines! Especially Seventeen magazines! I have so many of them I can start a collection, Lol. I have to buy one every month, lol. I have since 9th grade! I know…crazy right? haha. But I was in Barnes and Nobles and I discovered the magazines Jones and Disfunkshion. I love the fashion and the diffrent themes! So I had to just get them!

blog 2

 

5.) Shea Mositure Hair Masque ( can be purchased ย at the Dollar General, Walmart, and beauty stores) Sorry guys, but I forgot how much this product cost butย I know the big jar of it is about $11. Someone recommeded me to use this and I love it! After I get done shampooing and conditoning my hair I apply this to my for a hour then rinse it out with cold water! It’s thick so you don’t need much to put in your hair. It smells good and its for people with that colored their hair and people with relaxed hair! ย It helps repair damage! I deal with having dry hair and dandruff. It also helps with that. I really give this product 5 stars.

6.) Garnier Clearly Brighter Moisturizer ( Can be purchased at Walmart or any drug store) $12.74; My friend gave me this and I have to say I love it! It smells like oranges! I apply this every night after washing my face.

7.)Face and Body Treatment System ( I purchased it at a local shop while in Florida) $7.99; So when I spotted this while shopping I had to grab it! Iv’e been trying to find a face brush for awhile for a reasonable price so I purchased it! It works really well! I feel like it gets all the dirt and oil off of my face. Iv’e been using it everday and I love it! You can also use this as a nail buffer, rolling massage, a sponge for if you have senstive skin, and a pumince stone! It doesn’t come with batteries but it’s worth a money! Better than buying a Clairsonic in my opinion.

8.) Organix Shampoo and Conditioner Eucalyptus mint ( can be purchased at Walmart or drug stores) $6.99; Iv’e been using their shampoos and conditoners for about a year! A little pricey but I love it! This particular shampoo helps with my scalp because I deal with bad dandruff and having a bad scalp! In the shampoo and conditner it has tea tree oil and cooling mint to help the scalp! It works and you can feel it! Its sooooo soothing. Especially, when you rinse the conditiner out with cold water. Worth the money in my opinion.

9.) Biore Baking Soda Face Wash ( can be purchased at any drugstore or Walmart) $5.99; I did a mini haul on this product but im just so in love this face wash. This helps with my skin alot! It also leaves a cooling sensation on my face and It also smells really good. I recommend this product to anyone.

Thats it for now! Leave any comment below if you want!

WCW: Article 1: Savannah Sears Icon Photography

2016-07-15 15.02.34.jpg

This is my good friend, Savannah Sears. She’s a 19 year old entrepreneur photographer located in the coastal region. She started her business , Icon Photography, at the very young age of 15. Because she is so successful,  talented, and creative I decided I wanted to interview her. Below you’ll find out what motivated her and how she started and more ๐Ÿ™‚

T:What inspired you to do photography?

S: I remember when my sister, Kayla, started doing photography when I was younger. When I saw her work, it inspired me to begin my photography career.

T:How did you get started?

S: I went to a local christian rock band show at the Shed and I brought my camera with me. I didn’t consider myself a photographer at the time but when I got home and posted the photos on Facebook, the lead singer of the band told me I should make a business out of it.

T: How long have you been doing photography?

S: Almost 6 years.

T: Do you think you would do photography forever?

S: Yes, 100%!

T: What photos are you most confident about?

T: When you first started out being a photographer, people didn’t take you seriously, why?

S:Because no one considers photography or any type of art form as a real career.

T: If you have a chance to have a photo session with any famous person, who would it be?

Favorite Makeup Product


So I went to Walgreens a month ago and I decided to buy some BB cream for my face! So I wanted to give the CoverGirl Clean Matte a try! Omg, y’all this stuff is the shit! Especially for oily skin! The coverage and consistency is the bomb ( do people still say the bomb? ๐Ÿ˜‚) . It’s covers all blemishes and keeps the shine off your face! It’s very light weight, doesn’t feel heavy at all in the face. It’ll also last long throughout the day! It’s the best BB cream I ever used! I’m in the color dark! You can get this BB cream at any drugstore or Walmart! It’s worth the money and its non-expensive! I used Maybellines at one point it worked a little but the CoverGirl Clean Matte works for me the best! Hope this helps the girls that deal with oily skin. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
