Springtime Smooth w/ Dove Dry Oil Collection

The cold winter months can be super harsh on our skin. My skin is often dry no matter how much lotion I put on. With spring rolling in and the weather slowly getting warm enough for open-toed shoes and cute dresses, I am obsessed with making sure my skin is hydrated, moisturized, and silky smooth. Lucky for me an opportunity to partner with Dove and try their New Dove Dry Oil Collection featuring their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash presented itself just in time for my girls trip to the beach.

Hey there Royals. I’m back today with an update on my natural hair journey. If you recall, my journey started when I tried to rock various forms of flat twists and twist outs.

Don’t Lose the Spark, Get Dolled Up!

The Boy and I have officially been together for 4 years, but I swear it feels like my entire life (in a good way). We’ve been living together 2.5 of those 4 years. Because we’ve been cohabitating for a few years, things have become pretty routine and as you can imagine he’s seen me not looking too sexy. Gone are the days of spending hours shopping for an outfit to surprise him when he picks me up at my doorstep. He basically watches me transform from couch bum to diva from the bathroom door (he’s not that attached to me, he’s usually telling me to hurry up because I’m making us late). In an effort to keep our relationship fresh and him on his toes, every once in a while I’ll randomly get a little extra dolled up. (more…)
