Power to the People

Happy Black History Month! I’m know I’m posting this on its last day and obviously we shouldn’t restrict educating ourselves and celebrating once a year, but I wanted to get this in because we have this designation. Sharing and learning the often overlooked and erased contributions of a people is the whole point of this month! I won a giveaway from Goodreads a couple of months … Continue reading Power to the People

Engage

One of the great things about blogging is seeing people from all over the globe. So I’m sorry that this post is going to be very United States-centered! However, at least here in the U.S., there’s a narrative comparing other leaders or candidates to our current president, so perhaps you can relate. I’ve been raised to follow politics through pop culture or comedy programs, but other … Continue reading Engage

Berrisom Oops! My Lip Tint Pack

Given that you get along with or have a mom figure, I can only recommend living nearby. To be fair, I don’t have a spouse or children or live as close as directly across the street like in Everybody Loves Raymond, so I can’t recommend that, but I do like the easy access to more food. Additionally, her friends are way more into giving each other their closet … Continue reading Berrisom Oops! My Lip Tint Pack

DIY Photo Gifts

I can’t believe it’s nearly time for Christmas. Where has the time gone? Perhaps it went by attending my first wedding or this exhausting election (and now preparing for the aftermath). Or my brother taking his cat that I’d been taking care of since he was a kitten but also getting a new cat! I still don’t feel like accomplished as much as I wanted this year, … Continue reading DIY Photo Gifts

Incarcerated Illinois

The holidays are upon us which means for some of us– myself included– will be complaining about incoming in-laws or other unsavory relations. While some complaints may be valid and not to be patronizing, but perhaps we can deal by considering people who will have to go through a little more to see their families. I just happen to see @prisonculture‘s tweets sharing groups’ Amazon wish … Continue reading Incarcerated Illinois

Fall Makeup

Fall Tag!

It finally feels like fall! What better to do than a post about the season? I was tagged by the coolio Tigritsa. What is your favourite Fall colour? Probably burgundy. I love olives and I like the combining them with khakis, but I don’t really like wearing beige colors too much. What is your favourite Fall lip product? From my own collection, Wet ‘n Wild’s Mocha-licious and Clinique’s Plum are … Continue reading Fall Tag!
