The Cover | FashionLayn’s Picks of the Month

On the cover of August’s issue is Alayna. Yayyyy!! LOL  Just trying to give myself a boost of self confidence. My dream has always been to be on a cover of someone’s fashion magazine. When People’s Style Watch was a thing, I always knew that one day I was going to get featured.  However, that days has not came yet and the magazine is discontinued. I decided to design my own magazine cover and put myself on it. Why not? You know, just having fun, bring creative, and boosting myself in the process. Anyway, the reason why I designed a cover because I noticed that  most cover star have a section in the magazines that they showcase all these favorite picks. Since I am on the cover lol, on today’s post I am sharing with you  all my favorite products & colors for the month of July. I think I am going to make this a monthly thing. These products and colors have been my holy grails for the month. So scroll down and check out the fictional cover and check out all the items I am loving. “These are a few of my Favorite Things.” Milk Cosmetics Hydro Grip Primer …

Black Girl Sunscreen| Will This Protect My Melanin?| Product Review

Black does not crack! Well what I have to say to that is if you do not take care of it properly then it will certainly wear. Drinking water, minding your business, and a good SPF can have you skin in tip top shape. Speaking of SPF I purchase the Black Girl Sunscreen from Target. This product is just in time for the summer. Detroit is seriously heating up, Okay! I need all the protection I can get from the hot sun. Hmm, maybe Jackie Ania, a Youtuber, brainwashed me into using SPF lol.  I have not use SPF in quite some time. Anyway I am trying out sunscreen, on my body, for the first time since I was a young girl in summer camp. On today’s blog post I will be reviewing the “Black Girl Sunscreen“. Before I get into this review, let me tell you a few reasons why I never wore sunscreen. I know my kinfolks can understand my gripe with sunscreens, in general. First, I believe that my darker skin already protected me from the sun. Sunscreen protection was not something we discuss as much growing up Sunscreen I though was another product to waste my …

What’s In My Make Up Bag? | Béis Travel Cosmetic Case

So few weeks ago I finally splurged on a Beis Travel cosmetic case. I’ve been considering purchasing this for quite some time- finally I have it in my possession and I am obsessed with it. The beige color is beautiful however the best features of this makeup bag are the compact mirror, detachable double sided brush holders, and it is spill-proof ! This case is perfect, OKAY! I’ve became very obsessed with makeup when I started my blog. My collection grew and became very chaotic over past 4 years of blogging. I learn very fast, as blogger I have to learn to do a lot of things on my own, such as makeup. I could not, and still can not afford a makeup artist for my shoots. So my makeup collection is huge from watching makeup tutorials and many trial and errors! This cosmetic case helps me organize my collection for everyday use and travel. Everything I use on daily basis is in my case and everything is organize nicely on my vanity. On today’s post I am going to share my essentials, my holy grails, and all the makeup go-to. WHAT’S IN MY MAKEUP BAG PRIMER This is newbie to …
