Birkinstock is now making shoes from destroyed Birkin bags from Hermes. Yes you are seeing right. Those precious, expensive bags that everyone desires who doesn’t and those who have want more.
Birkin as you know is a bag produced for the “elite” and is normally sold to those they invite to purchase. These bags are now broken down and formed into those lovely chunky slippers and sandals some love to hate.
If you want one it will cost between $35K – $76K a pair and a certain someone has already spent $76K on a pair. Well when you are as wealthy as Ms Jenner you can do things like this or maybe you just love the finer things. Why not. Dreaming will get you everywhere. Keep dreaming.
Looking amazing on a budget is very easy now. We get great quality more often now for lower prices and its just as good as the big name brands we pay for. NYX gives you that perfectly.
NYX is a subsidary of L’Oreal and they have the moving power that can drive the quality I am speaking of. Desspite the nameNYX if you know Greek mythology, the results cannot be associated with the darkness at all. NYX has been giving quality that has given me the coverage, the quality and the tools to do makeup masterfully. This blog is dedicated to NYX and I’m going to show you some of the necessary products I swear by and I use almost daily.

Lets begin with the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer. This is ideal for covering up and correcting imperfections. I use it under eyes and it brightens me up beautifully when my eyes are dark or a bit heavy from allergies. It hides it nicely.
I love pomade for eyebrows and I do prefer a brush but this NYX Eyebrow pomade pencil is a-mazing. It saves time when I’m doing a light makeup to go and I just want to fill in the spots and get a light fluffing to go with my mask.
When I do have time and want to look really pulled together, I use the NYX brow glue for the laminated look giving me a super dramatic brow after my fill in. Sometimes I do it both before and after my pomade fill in to have it look snatched.
After I have snatched my face and pulled everything together I use the NYX High Glass Illuminating Powder in #03 Golden Hour. It gives me a finish that brings life back to my skin. It is dewy, moist and lifelike again. I also use it on my decolletage to liven up my entire facial are bringing it all together.
NYX Butter Gloss ties the whole look together with a sultry sexy feel that is nit sticky. It lives up to its name ‘butter’. it is available in 21 shades from pinks to mauve’s to neutrals so there is a shade for every skin tone.
To all my makeup artists on the go I have two sturdy very professional options if you need train cases. The2 tier train case and the X-Large Lighted Train Cqase

Sadly on Jan 3 we lost Mr. Dickey to cancer just one year shy of 60 years old. An African American writer with a contemporary view of black lifestyle and love.
In my younger days, probably when I should not have been reading it, I was enveloped in the erotic and sensual mind of this beloved writer.
This man made me fall in love with reading. His books at that phase transported me to a place that made my love for books grow. His books will always hold a place in my heart.
He published his first book in 1996 and went on to sell over 7 million of his books have been sold worldwide. Books like Cheaters, Sister Sister, Between lovers and friends and many others are still on my shelf to be shared and returned as soon as anyone is done reading.
Some of the novels you should take a peep it especially now you have so much time in quarantine. This is an excellent way to pass the time by.
The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35
Jesus the Christ came just for us. His mission began and this is supposed to be why we celebrate this Christmas day with all grandeur. Because of His entire life we all have this powerful option and access to our biggest dreams and blessings in God.
This year was unimaginable, it was mind blowing at times, some suffered great loss, some had great gains because of the loss of others, some learned to have a giving loving heart being touched by the grief and depression of others. There is so much people experience that we may never know about. 2020 was a year that forced us to think and assess our place as humans and may have made some like myself remember the power of the creator and my place in this all.
No matter what you have been through and where you are right now, I encourage you to end the year focused on the reason we made it through the year and whose power we a banking on to get us through next year. I encourage you to stick to the power we know so we have the peace and blessings He has promised. I encourage you to have the fruit of His spirit that will take you through this life.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.John 14:27
May your Christmas be blessed, May your New year be blessed, May your life be blessed.
Merry Christmas and Happy new year from us to you.

Soon to be released, in a few more days. Can we wait?
There are so many brow sculpting products on the market from almost every brand. From high end to drugstore brands have released a brow product. Two of my personal favorites because I prefer using a brush and pomade is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade – high end and drugstore is definitely LA Colors Brow Pomade.
If you prefer the pencil to draw on and fill up your brows then NYX is releasing a brow pen that you may love. There are 10 shades to be made available ranging from ash blonde to black. They have you covered.
NYX Cosmetics boasats that the pen has a micro tip that is flexible. This will allow you to create thin to thick lines that look realistic. It is smudge proof, transfer resistant and last up to 16 hours.
Now based on these claims I will try it out when it is released and I will let you know how it creates and wears because in these masks we have to make the eyes and frame of our face stand out beautifully.
Get that shaver out of your hand. What were you thinking?
Aren’t you tired of razor bumps, ingrown hairs, cuts, scrapes, bruises and everything else added up and in between?
I was so I gave up, used to go to the spa for waxes very often but I upped by game to laser hair removal at home. Now, during the pandemic is the perfect time to make the switch to the at home system.
This at home kit is easy to move and gentle on the skin. The system is gentle enough and gives little to no pain resulting in a smooth skin finish. It does not just remove hairs but according to Ms. Hrush, #hrush, makeup artist extraordinaire, in her YouTube video, it smooths the skin too. Check her page video.
You do not have to take my word for it to convince you. Click on the button above to go to some more reviews of this at home lazer hair remover. This will help give you ideas on how often, if its painful, if it will affect your skin type, etc.
Do you do half your face with makeup? I know I do sometimes.
From your nose up it drama ready and below your nose to chin drama free? Don’t judge me. I’m sure you have gone to the store in PJ’s and a winter coat. No one will ever know. I have done it. Don’t judge. This is a judge free zone.
So lets start. Its been months and you cant seem to figure out how to get your makeup to stay put under your mask. Here are a few tips I have discovered with all my products and testing.
Start with clean skin. – Make sure you clean your face and neck are thoroughly before you apply anything to your skin. You will be happy with the skin results if you do this continually. A smooth canvas makes for beautiful art. Depending on your skin type, use the cleanser that works best for you.
2. Moisturize and Prime – This is a very important step because it will determine how long the foundation and concealer stays put. Moisturizing will keep your skin plump and luscious and primer will assist with the extension of the wear of the makeup keeping it in place a little longer. A trick is to use setting spray under and above the foundation.
3. DO NOT use cream foundations – Any type of cream foundation will simply melt and rub off onto the mask. The warmth from you exhaling will melt away the makeup so you need to wear a foundation that will withstand the elements. Long wear liquid makeups are a must. They are proven to withstand the heat and rubbing of the mask.
I dont know if you find that you cant keep up with all the products in the cosmetic and beauty industry. And when you think you found one that works another one is released which promises to be better than all those before.
How do you keep up? How do you choose? Who is going to spend all their coin on beauty products especially during this pandemic? There are so many people already months behind on rent, mortgages, educaton bills, food bills, you name it.
Maybe we should have more rituals to get us through the long dreary days or the quick rough ones that punch us around and brutalize us. We need the quality time with ourselves to come back to our-self and get into the next day or week ahead.
Here is my advice. Get to know yourself. Spend time with you and the God who made it all. Live the life you need to, as one with God only.
Do not worry about what people say and let only your thoughts and God’s thoughts toward you be the guide of your journey.
