I hope  you all have had a wonderful Christmas!  We are living in some trying times, but I hope that you guys had a chance to celebrate with friends and family or at least have a little joy today.    Let us please remember the less fortunate  and as rough as I sometimes think that things are, I am grateful for what I have.

Anyway, I had an amazing time with the family and I even tried my hand at making pumpkin pie!!! (actually it was a joint effort between myself and my sister)

Pumpkin Pie!

Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Chanukah!

She is passionate - well, obsessed - about beauty and in addition to blogging, she is also a corporate beauty professional and a budding web designer/developer. She loves combining her in-depth, practical knowledge with her chemist/scientific training to make your cosmetic choices fun and easy. She likes to take the guesswork out of beauty, separate the hype from what really works, to help you bring out the most beautiful you! She loves colour, and makeup, and she has been natural for years! She also loves great food, culture, sports and laid back vibes!
