Let's talk about some of my recent favorite things that make my day a little better :)


elf lip oil, lip oil, beauty products

Why I love it:

broadcast channel, instagram channel, instagram feature

A great way to connect with people on Instagram in a more tight-knit way! I love posting on my channel to give small life updates and share little things that make my day, as well as new content posted on my main feed! This is the perfect way to form smaller communities on your Instagram and boost engagement as well! I like to think of it as a little group chat with the girls Xx.

puffer bag, tote bag, white bag, amazon tote bag

I personally love a good tote bag and as my collection continues to grow, I think this white puffer tote is perfect to add to the collection. It's very versatile and matches with lots of outfits! I occasionally use this bag in my rotation for taking my laptop and books to class. There are additional pockets on the inside of the bag and it's machine washable!

black girl friendly sunscreen, spf, sunscreen, clinique

Why I love it:

  • Easy to use!

  • Doesn't leave any white cast on my face, so it's black girl friendly!

  • Very hydrating!

pink medicine holder, medicine, holder, amazon finds

I can get into a bad habit of forgetting to take my medicine and daily vitamins, so this cute little medicine holder makes it much easier to remember and pack with me anywhere I go!

curl defining gel, hair gel, black girl hair products

Why I love it:

  • I never have problems with flaking in my hair

  • Smells good

  • Perfect for styling 4c hair

body butter, nabakindo, skincare, body care, body butter

If you're looking to support black-owned, family-owned, or locally owned businesses in Pittsburgh, then I recommend starting with Nabakindo body moisturizers and skincare! I have had the pleasure of working with the owners of Nabakindo and L-O-V-E their products and brand's purpose!

We don't always have the means to go out and buy new room decor every time we want to switch the vibe of our space, so I recommend using what you already have. For example, I use purses and hats as wall art, and then I can switch the items out whenever I want! This is also a great way to match your style with your room's aesthetic, especially if you create content and want to show off your style.

I'm a huge fan of shopping vintage for more sustainable reasons and for finding your unique style! In this post, I share where I shop for vintage denim and some of my favorite vintage denim finds in Pittsburgh!

black girl, gold jewelry, hoop earrings

Let me put you on! Kate Spade Outlet jewelry does not tarnish and is super affordable at their outlet stores. I currently own a necklace and small hoop earrings from Kate Spade Outlet that have lasted me a year so far.
