I’ve been on a quest to re-decorate my space. Someone once told me, “everything in your home is a representation of you”. So I want all the pieces of me to be reflected in my space. I don’t have many visitors, but I should enjoy my space. Hey, I’m the one paying the rent right?
I recently added this handing shelf and decor on the wall of my kitchen island. Greenery is really becoming my thing. I want to create a zen and peaceful ambience in my kitchen space.
- Wood hanging shelf (15 3/4″ x 4″) $5 … from Five Below
- Metal tabletop letter “K” $3 … from Five Below
- Tabletop boxwood decor plant $3 … from Target
For only $11 (plus tax) I put together this zen piece of wall decor. You don’t have to break the bank to decorate your space. Some things are better when designed by you. Don’t be afraid to DIY some of your decor desire to save money and create special decor pieces that are meaningful to your space. For example, the Hexagon spaced shelves I made out of popsicle sticks and featured on a previous blog…. click here
Simple zen is the inspiration for this piece of decor, along with my complete plans for my kitchen space. It’s all still a work in progress, as I add new pieces … I will share.

This week’s lipstick of the week is actually a lip gloss by Bobby Brown Cosmetics -Rich Color Gloss in the color, Pink Cocoa 12. I’ve been using this product all year.
This gloss formula is thick but not sticky. It actually last a long time if you’re not eating or drinking. Since it’s a gloss of course it’s going to transfer over to a cup or napkin when eating and drinking. But the formula is rich enough to hold its form and color when on your lips. It doesn’t smudge nor harden. The color Pink Cocoa just tickles my fancy soooo much. It’s cute and neutral to match with just about any make up look. An added benefit to the gloss is that the color is so close to my skin tone. Y’all know how much I love nude colors.
You don’t really need a liner for this gloss but, Of course, I use my Mac lip pencil in the color Plum to line my lips.
What other glosses should I try? Comment below.
Day to day life activities can take a toll on you. But treating yourself every now and then and be just the cure you need to feel good inside and out. No matter how small or how big, treat yourself!
I’m a workaholic and busy body. It’s not a bad thing- I actually enjoy it. But I’ve had to learn how to treat myself to keep my spirits high on a day to day basis. On a weekly basis I try to treat myself to my favorite meal on Friday’s, which is hot wings with lemon pepper sprinkle and blue cheese on the side with cold vegetables. It’s nothing major but it makes me feel good and often times just what I need to wrap up a busy week.
Recently, I decided I wanted a new sofa for my apartment. I’d had my old sofa for about 2 years and it just was comfortable to me anymore. So after a month or 3 of budgeting more and saving I purchased a new sofa.
Purchased from American Freight Furniture
It’s soft and comfortable. Although, I don’t like the pillows I love the sofa. Don’t worry- I’ve already order new pillows on Amazon.

This week I have been rocking my Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, in the color Veronica and Mac lip pencils, in the color Plum.
The Plum lip pencil is a go to make up essential for me. Since I love nude colors, plum goes good with just about every lip color I wear. Mac lip pencil lasts a long time. It’s well worth $18.
I don’t normally purchase Anastasia Beverly Hills products. But ULTA was running a sale back in July on the brand- buy one get on free. I thought it was a great deal on a $22 Lipstick, so I purchased the Veronica liquid lipstick along with another matte lipstick that I will feature another week. The formula spreads nicely, making it easy to apply and it lasts a long time. I often reapply after drinking anything. Best of all it’s easy to wipe off.
What other lipstick colors from Anastasia Beverly Hills do you recommend? Comment below.
Hello Passionistas !!!
Yesterday, my girls and I experienced yet another outstanding show by Beyoncé featuring Jay Z at the On The Run 2 Tour. It’s always a pleasure when 👑🐝 blesses us with her creativity and stage presence.
This show was my 1st time watching Chloe x Halle (Beyoncé’s artist) perform live. I love those girls! They are such great artists and I am a BIG fan. I even made t-shirts to wear to the concert.
Check out my wardrobe choice:
Black Tee (Men’s) purchased at Walmart
Red Biker shorts purchased at Walmart
Black and White Vans
Beauty Supply store clear fanny pack
NATURAL HAIR PROTECTIVE STYLE
I’ve had this hairstyle idea in my head for a while, but never had the opportunity to do it until the concert. It turnt out better than I thought. The black choker, hoop earrings and makeup really brought the whole look together for me.
CHLOE X HALLE SHIRTS MADE BY ME
Self care is very important to me. I’m not a pro at it just yet. But over the years, I have realized that taking good care of yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally is a super important factor to living a happy life.
One thing I enjoy doing is pampering myself. As much as I love going to the spa, realistically I can’t afford a spa visit every week. But I always pamper myself with a facial mask and body scrubs. It leaves my skin feeling soft and makes me feel good. I don’t have a routine or specific products I use. I like to try different techniques and brands. That’s why I’m such a Product Junkie!!!
Here’s my 1st facial self care video:
Yes To Coconut cleansing balm
Dickerson’s witch hazel
Formula 10.0.6 One Smooth Operator Pore Clearing Face Scrub
Olay Daily Face Oil

How to make Hexagon Shaped Shelves out of popsicle sticks?
I hung the shelves on the wall near the entry way of my apartment. This is also where I have my storage ottoman to store my shoes and handbags. I thought the wall decor gave this area a little more character.
