A couple years ago - I was about 18 or 19 - my aunt signed up to be a Mary Kay® beauty consultant. It was the funniest thing because she did not wear any makeup, nor did she know how to use it. So guess who started running the business? Me. This is where my love for makeup started.

The Back To School Fun Isn’t For Students Only

Ladies, Do You (Or Would You) Snoop On Your Man?

Over the weekend, I came across an article on Punch Magazine that quoted Toke Makinwa as having allegedly said that women should snoop on their men because men are wicked. I don’t know if she actually said this, and if she did, I don’t know when: before or after everyone and their mama found out about her husband’s cheating. I can’t even decide which would be better because there does not seem to be a lesser evil here ....more
