L’Oreal Paris Revitalift CicaCream Review




With the winter winds howling and snowflakes falling it’s time to step up my face game and L’Oreal Paris Revitalife CicaCream has got me covered! 




As we age our skin tends to need more hydration in order to keep it firm and free from excessive wrinkles.  However, because I tend not to drink the recommended amount of water daily, I make sure to use only products that provides hydration to help fight the signs of aging. 




The new L’Oreal Paris Revitalift contains Centella Asiatic also known at Tiger Grass, which is an herb used in traditional  Chinese medicines.  It strengthens and repairs skin barrier to help resist visible lines, loss of firmness and other signs of aging. 

I started using L’Oreal Paris Revitalift CicaCream twice per day, once in the morning under my makeup and then again at night after I removed my makeup and after 7 days, I did notice a change in my skin. 



This is not my first time using a product from L’Oreal and I’ve never been disappointed; my face seems smoother, more hydrated and supple.  There was no skin irritation or adverse reactions, therefore, I will definitely continue using L’Oreal Paris Revitalife CicaCream especially since I am in my 57th year!!!

Brown Liquor Music

Wayback Wednesday – Brown Liquor Music


Who remembers way back when during the holidays our parents and grandparents had house parties on Saturday nights and we kids would be running back and forth trying to say outta “grown folks business”, however, our ears were subjected to Brown Liquor Music?



According to the Urban Dictionary, Brown Liquor Music is played when you want to slow down and chill, relax and jam to the sounds of jazz, funk, soul, and R&B rolled into one hip glass of brown liquor with two to three cubes of ice.

The grown folks would be playing cards, telling lies while eating fried chicken, collards greens, chitterlings and other unhealthy foods and drinking from glasses that held something a lot stronger than Ice Tea! 



I still remember the card parties in the 60s that my grandmother had in Mt. Vernon, where they played Pinocle and I heard songs such as these coming from the record player.

#ShopGoodwill for Holiday Goodies

Shop Goodwill for Holiday Goodies


The holiday season is in full swing which means there are lots of parties, school plays, festive decorations and family gatherings. It can be overwhelming both to your schedule and to your budget and if you are anything like me, purchasing a new dress or complete outfit for a single event is out of the question.

Making a purchase from Goodwill not only helps your budget but it also helps to fund job creation in your community and donating to a local Goodwill provides a wonderful opportunity to give back and declutter your closets.   

I stopped in at a local Goodwill in search of an outfit for a house party that hubby and I will be attending next week.  I found a few pieces, and I liked the Ralph Lauren Cocktail Dress the best, which one do you like?
