Having a little fun with ASMR…. and failed ✨

So one of my Instagram followers suggested that I attempt to do an unboxing via ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). Without getting too technical, this is the process of, when used on video, used to ‘massage’ your brain. So your get this mental massage through a series of ‘triggers’ like nail-tapping, the sound of brushing hair, whispering, etc. Well, trying to do it was so FUNNY for me!!!! Despite the fact that I failed at it miserably, I think I’ll do it again in the future…only because it was fun and a loyal subscriber requested it. Enjoy watching me being silly 😎

2018 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival: LL Cool J/ New Orleans Tricentennial

     So one of the many beautiful things about living in Louisiana is the ability to have a good time without planning it. This weekend marked the end of the 2018 JazzFest and the 300th Anniversary of the city of New Orleans. While the tickets to such an event may not seem reasonable, having access to stage acts from Anita Baker to Aerosmith makes it worth the wild! So I didn’t see Aerosmith or Ms. Baker, but I did witness the legendary hiphop master LL Cool J rock the golden mic on JazzFest Congo Square Stage  🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here’s my backstage view:        While spending some time in New Orleans, I decided to take in some of the views I’ve grown up with and share it with you. Being from this great state, I missed it tremendously while I was in the U.S. Army. When I moved to New York, I would make sure I took a vacation to come back

Who Are They: DHC Beauty

     For the past couple years, Asian-orginated skincare products have gradually become accepted into the American beauty community….most with help of course. Let me give you a brief example:      Seen these skincare products before? Maybe in your local Ulta store or reviewed by your favorite beauty guru on YouTube? Well, this is a Korean-based company that has been introduced and accepted by Americans all over. Here’s another that I actually did not know was an Asian-based company that has spread and now has locations here in the United States:       DHC is a skincare company from Japan in which the founder, Yoshida, traveled abroad to educate himself and learn ways to fuse olive oils in Spain with herbs from Japan. He also gained additional education on skincare in Europe.      DHC has now expanded to the United States by way of California and has been apart of the mainstream skincare community for some time now.

Holographic and glitter makeup favs UNDER $15 🔥🔥🔥

    While I have spent my share hours of my little life in front of a mirror, attempting to do my makeup before a date, important events, or just a day to cover blemishes, one trend that has gotten the masses out to the makeup aisles…..holographic and glitter makeup. Yes, dear reader, I am aware that your favorite YouTube beauty gurus have attempted to kill the holographic/glitter craze of 2017 but the reality is….it just takes some of us normal people time to come around to what the latest trend is. Sometimes the latest trends don’t fit into our lifestyle in which we have transitional time in which we come around to trying new makeup ideas. Other times, new makeup trends cost us not only our time, but extra money. That’s right, it can tend to put a dent in other everyday things that are standard so, buying new makeup can be considered a ‘treat yourself’ moment, let alone a
