When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    I absolutely love your blog! You are the perfect source of information in a sea of beauty bloggers, for someone of darker skin. Your reviews are incredibly helpful and on point, even for someone living in the Caribbean and dealing with the constant heat.
