NEW MUSIC: “The Woman You Love” @Ashanti ft Busta Rhymes

ASHANTI is back and better then ever. This song is fire and will do damage on the charts. I know many women that will be able to relate to this track because we are all trying to be “the woman you love” for the man that they are madly in love with. I know I do this myself. Busta kills his verse too, nothing bad to say about this. I am in love with this song. What do you think?

“What about my pride?
You’re never satisfied.
You made me feel like I wasn’t worth being by your side.
I done sacrificed all of my damn time giving you all mine
You see me dying inside.

Tryin’ to see.
Tryin’ to find.
Tryin’ to be (the woman you love)
Tried everything, but it just don’t seem like it’s enough. (Hey baby!)
Tried to believe.
But I’m tired of being tired.
Tryin’ to love
Tryin’ to fight.
And I’m running out of tries.
You’re just no good.”

MAKE UP FOR EVER Wild & Chic Aqua Creams – A Great Holiday Pick!

MAKE-UP-FOR-EVER-WILD-AND-CHIC-AQUA-CREAMS

Hi all! I was lucky enough to receive the @MAKEUPFOREVERUS Wild & Chic Aqua Cream kit when I went to the launch of their LA Boutique and Pro Loft. The limited edition set includes 10 of MUFE’s best selling aqua creams and a #5N brush all wrapped up in a cute snake pattern clutch. MAKE UP FOR EVER describes their aqua creams as:

Create a natural everyday look or the most wild combinations using this wide range of multipurpose shades. Aqua Cream combines the highest quality pigments with mother-of-pearl particles to give immediate rich color in just one application. Its waterproof, long-lasting formula will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions, and its creamy and elastic texture allows for easy blending using the included Brush #5N.

Over the last few weeks, I gotten to play with different colors because of the holidays. The Aqua Creams are very pigmented and have a very pearlized, shimmery finish. Each color in this set is true to its’ color in the pot. What you see is what you’ll get when you apply it to your eyes or cheeks.

Aqua Creams, like anything else “Aqua” from MUFE, lives up to its’ name and really stays put all day long. When I was trying to remove the swatches I had made on my arms, it took some intense scrubbing to get them off and even then there was still a hint of color that wouldn’t come off until I scrubbed again in the shower.

All 10 colors are beyond gorgeous and very wearable. I don’t think there’s a single color in the set that I wouldn’t wear for a certain occasion or event. If you’re struggling to find a last minute holiday present for that beauty junkie/lover/fanatic in your life this would be it. The colors can be worn all year round and they range from cool to warm AND they’re multi-functional. You can wear them on your eyes or some of them can be worn as a cheek color.

The Wild & Chic Aqua Creams do run a little steep for $175 at Sephora but these pots will last you forever and ever. My mom always laughs at me when I think of certain beauty products as “investment pieces” but seriously, these Aqua Creams will last you so long AND it comes with a brush and cute carrying case! Your beauty loving friend will love you even more after she opens this baby up! And hey, I won’t tell anyone if you happen to gift it to yourself ;). It’s been a long year, you deserve it!

100% Taste ZERO Guilt

I recently got to try the new pomegranate blueberry Trop50, the black/blueberry Aquafina Plus+10 Cal and the strawberry lemonade Aquafina Plus+10 Cal, and they were all delicious. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about trying them, as I was worried they’d be watered down and tasteless… I was wrong. They taste great, and are super refreshing. In fact, they are so good, I drank them all in less than 5 days…okay 3 days don’t judge me.

Trop50 and Aquafina Plus+ 10 Cal are  both naturally sweetened with Reb A (a natural sweetener derived from the Stevia plant) and are the perfect beverage option for those health conscious invididuals, or those that are just looking for a low-calorie beverage that tastes great.

FYI: Stevia is a South American herb that has been used as a natural sweetener for centuries. It has a  zero glycemic index, zero calories and zero carbs, AND it’s 25-30 times sweeter and healthier than sugar.

Get. You. Some.

peace and love
