Girl Talk: Major Keys To Glowing Skin

It is no secret that a girl loves her some glowing skin. And of course, I wish all my queens nothing but the same love. Here are a few major keys (Khaled Voice) I have found helpful to living my best hair/skin life-thank me later. (I'm not a beauty guru or hair expert, I'm just a girl, don't @ me)

#1: We all love a good face mask and some Grey's Anatomy on a Sunday night, but here's something I've had to learn the hard way. DO NOT PUT TOO MANY PRODUCTS ON YOUR SKIN. Find one or two products that work for your skin type. If you use these products daily make sure you take days in between care to give your skin a break. I have tried everything from Proactive to Neutrogena and I can honestly say my skin treats me best when I use no products at all. You would be surprised at how far a good old washcloth and warm water can get you.

#2: If you have oily skin like me, make sure to grab yourself some type of an astringent. Which hazel, for example, removes deep grime and oil from your skin and is truly the best way to cleanse.

#3: Girls- I cannot stress the importance of TAKING OFF YOUR MAKEUP/CLEANSING YOUR SKIN BEFORE BED. You really want to get all the product off of your face so your skin isn't soaking in it overnight. I've tested every expensive makeup remover there is and I have found a simple, effective favorite for removing my wipes! That's right, baby wipes. I use sensitive skin wipes so I know they will not irritate my skin, plus they are like 2$ if you're ballin' on a budget.

#4: I know this sounds cliche but DRINK YOUR WATER LADIES! This is a superrrr important step to skin that glows. I've done trials where I didn't drink as much water for a week and then drank a gallon a day for a week and there was instantly a MAJOR difference. Try it for yourself and see.

#5: Although I love me some Shea Moisture hair products, store bought black soap is NOT organic African black soap. I'll just leave this here.

#6: FIND OUT WHAT FOODS CAUSE YOUR SKIN TO REACT, and try to cut those foods out of your diet. For some people, it's soda or chocolate, for some people its gluten. Learn your skin, and when you figure out what it needs to show it a little extra love! Your skin will be good to you as long as you are good to it!

May your month of march be full of mula, marvelous memories and mad good skin, happy glowing gals!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
