What Supplements Should I Take
We’d like to start this article by first saying that we believe that the best approach to achieving health starts with some fundamentals.

Once this is established in your life then would be a great time to start incorporating supplementation into your regime.
What Makeup Do I Need
“What Makeup do I need?”...a simple question with a not so simple answer. The problem is that there isn’t a one size fits all. It’s dependant on skin tone, skin type (dry, oily, combination) and what look you are hoping to achieve. If you want a subtle natural look you will use a different approach than if you wanted the femme fatale look. We’re going to assume that readers of this are beginners when it comes to makeup and so we will give a basic rundown of some of the things that you should consider when wanting to establish your look and are looking for advice on exactly what products you should include in your repertoire.

What Lipstick Suits Me?
We once knew someone who held the opinion that lipstick is what brings a look together. If she was going out with friends then lipstick was that final element that gave the whole outfit that finishing touch. You can see why. When someone talks to you it’s common to look at their mouth. Having beautiful lips draws the eye to the centre of the face and makes you more engaging. People want to look at you. You attract more attention...
5 Seemingly Harmless Remarks Black Women Are Tired Of Hearing
As black women, we encounter an abundance of remarks that are clearly offensive to us as a whole. However, society doesn't realise that some of the remarks they make towards us are derogatory, when they may think they are harmless in effect.
Talk the walk
“I am radiant. I am luminous. I exude beauty. I rock.” It works for Miranda Kerr, so I’m giving it a crack. I’ve read that the supermodel turned business woman is in the daily habit of communing with the universe, and the results are stellar.

Perfect Foundation vs The History of Mexico
My skin is the color of Mexican nationalism. I am a product of (at least) Indigenous and Spanish roots on both sides of my family, from Northern and Southern Mexico, from flour and corn tortillas. Mexico was one of the first colonized countries that advocated for miscegenation, because it would “whiten” the entire country, and the mixed race people could be known as La Raza, as foretold and advocated by José Vasconcelos. I grew up saying “Para La Raza!” (for the race) without knowing the originally racist implications - now I say “para la gente!” (for the people). Because being Latinx is an ethnicity and not a race, then people of many races are Latinx. You don’t even have to speak Spanish to be Latinx, as Brazil and Haiti are Latin American countries. However, having been raised in the Southwestern US, I grew up with the understanding that I looked like the stereotypical Latina. I’m brown with brown eyes, black hair, and short with a round face, and when I talk quickly or with strong emotion, my Chicana accent comes out. Now, I know that not all Latinx people have to look or be like me, even other Mexicans don’t look like me, since I have been trying to surpass the anti-Blackness and anti-Indigeneity taught in Mexican culture.
Reflections of a Sauna Sisterhood
Reflections of a Sauna Sisterhood By: Paris Perrault Written as Covid Pandemic Lock Down Began March 2020 Something mystical occurs while sitting in a darkened, cedar planked sauna with fatigued, perspiring women. It is empowering and uplifting. It is sensual and invigorating. It is during this experience of sweat-equity, where magically, any woman of this sisterhood, is free to dream, re-define, clarify and reinvent herself, while simultaneously exuding a natural glow that one cannot buy in any retail market.
The Negative Side Effects of Beautiful Women
Beauty isn’t all that. We’re so conditioned by the “Halo Effect” that we are fast to assume that beautiful people are happier or that they’ve got it easier because of their above-average looks. How did we wind up so hyper-focused on youth and exterior beauty, anyway? As if being or possessing beauty makes the secret sauce for all of life’s pleasures. Maybe it isn’t fair that some of us come into the world with an advantage like perfect symmetrical features or a multi-million-dollar inheritance. I mean, outer beauty and money are alike in that everyone wants a piece of the action despite that owning either of them alone is not nearly enough to bring us true happiness.
