My Favorite Biodegradable Exfoliating Cleansers

If you care about your skincare routine, you probably have an opinion about the impending ban on microbeads. I love that these microbeads are being banned because they do not dissolve and may pose a threat to the environment. However, some ladies are a bit frantic because their staple cleansers won’t be around anymore. Well, fret not. I have pulled together a list of my favorite natural exfoliants. I have purchased each of these products within the last year and have LOVED each of them.

Fall Favorites

Fall is officially over.

While most people start thinking about winter the day after Thanksgiving, I’m one who likes to ride with fall until its official end. There may be a little bias because I’m a fall baby, but it’s my favorite season. I love Sweet potato and Pumpkin flavored everything. I enjoy the crisp fall air. I love the fun fall colors. I also LOVE the bold fall recipes. Somehow, I have managed to narrow down my list of favorites from the past few months. Continue reading “Fall Favorites”

Product Review: Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus

I have a lot going on. Not only do I run this blog, but I also run a photography business. As you could imagine, I have a lot of things to protect. I typically use an antivirus program to protect my assets, identity, and client files. While my little one is just a baby, antivirus software can also help tremendously with keeping children safe from the dangers of the Internet.

I was recently sent a free download of Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus for MacOS. Webroot Antivirus protects you from online threats, which keeps you safe no matter how or where you connect. It scans fast, uses fewer system resources, and protects you by instantly identifying and blocking new threats as soon as they appear. The scan is completely done in less than two minutes! The program analyzes files, phishing sites, malicious web pages, IP addresses, and mobile apps providing a real time view of current threats and enabling instantaneous protection from new infections. 

I’ve had a short time to review this product, but so far, I’m satisfied. I am relieved to not have to worry about this aspect of protecting my business. If you’d like to give Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus a try, it may be purchased here. Stay tuned for a Webroot sponsored giveaway around the holidays!

How One Woman Emailed Her Way To A Perfect Shade Of Foundation

As I have mentioned a few times in my previous posts, I am in a number of awesome Facebook groups. One of those groups is a makeup group for black women. We share tips, product reviews, and looks of the day…among many other things. This group is important for us because it’s not always easy for us to find products that flatter our features and complexions. For many women of color, a lack of such products can be a deal breaker. Recently, a member of the makeup group shared her awesome experience with Ocean Mist Cosmetics regarding that very issue. Continue reading “How One Woman Emailed Her Way To A Perfect Shade Of Foundation”
