How To Update Your Highlight for the Summer

Your beach tan calls for a whole new routine, girlfriend

How to highlight with Make Up For Ever Face Artist palette

 It's no surprise that for someone as over the top as myself, highlighting would be my favorite beauty trend—and boy are there a lot of beauty trends for it to compete against. Time and time again I find myself picking up shimmery champagne-gold colors to make my cheekbones, cupid's bow, nose, brow bone (my whole, face, TBH) pop, as the gurus call it. With the new customizable Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color palette, I tried something new though—a bronze, coppery highlight.

Up In the Air

Thoughts from 40,000 feet up in the air


As I write this I am 39,242.30 feet up in the air. I know this very specific altitude thanks to a Snapchat filter that is really only impressive to use if you are climbing mountains or flying on a plane (it's this one, if you're curious). I'm on my way home to New York after a weekend in Atlanta, and though I thought this trip would make me feel blue, I'm coming back to New York floating on cloud nine.

Different Levels, Different Devils

A lesson from the old southern grandma I never had

How to style a neckerchief

I have been lucky enough, fortunate enough, blessed and highly favored enough to get most of the things I want out of life. I know that sounds braggadocious, and you're probably rolling your eyes, but it hasn't been without hard work, family, friends, and a lot of divine intervention. I take only a fraction of the credit. But yeah, it's fair to say that I get what I want—no, I get what I work for. Sue me.

Gone Lemonading

Ladies, get your baseball bats ready


I've dabbled in Lemonade inspired attire before, but after binging on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and seeing Titus' truly moving comedic homage, I was inspired to have a part deux. Ladies, pull out your golden yellow garb—we're going a-lemonding.

The Summer Shoulder Shimmy

Sorry cleavage, this is just not your summer 

The best off the shoulder tops for summer

Who knew that shoulders could be such a point of interest? All these years I'd been doing myself a disservice by wearing sleeves (of all lengths) and sweaters (of all kinds), not thinking for a second that shoulders could be the next big thing.

Thoughts On Watermelon Juice

I been drankin', I been drankin'

How to wear gingham


This is perhaps the closest I've felt to Beyoncé in a long time. First off, who knew watermelon juice was a thing that could happen? And secondly (or is it second off?) who knew it was so refreshing? Certainly not I, but this weekend when I found a little Brooklyn coffee shop with a fresh squeezed pitcher, I discovered the endless wonder of this summer fruit. Look, if watermelon is good enough for Bey, it's good enough for me.
