Spring Obsessions Pt. 1: Wedges

Hello young world!
Youtube has been my BFF!! I'm really learning how to use photoshop and it's pretty exciting.  Now I'm not professional (yet!) however I was able to make my first wishlist/favorites collage.  I decided that I'm going to do a brief series of posts sharing with you guys a few of the spring trends that I am excited about.  The series will be called Spring Obsessions.  Hopefully you all will find these posts useful when you are looking for ideas to help with your spring wardrobe.
The first trend that I'm super excited about is Wedges.  This year all of the wedges I've seen have been really cute! I do not own very many pairs of wedges but after this spring I definitely will be making them apart of my wardrobe.  Here are a few pair that plan to buy:

Here are the sites that you can find these and plenty more wedges:


All of these sites carry 11's and in some cases they carry 12's! :-)

Let me know what you all think!

Thanks for reading :-)

Brown Girl Beauty

Hello Young World!!
I've been meaning to do this post for the longest! *deep sigh* I have to do better.  Anyway, I'm always looking for products that will make my skin beautiful and healthy.  I saw one of Chastity's tweets that said "Your skin is your most valuble accessory" (Maybe not in those exact words but it was close to it).  Since I'm a brown girl, one of my biggest fears is appearing to be "ashy" or having dull skin.  I love my chocolate skin tone so I try my best to keep it glowing.   I've used a number of different products however, the ones that I'm going to show you below are my absolute favorites... For now...

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Cleansing Pads

I've been blessed to have relatively good skin. I rarely have any acne issues. The only big problem I have with my face is dryness in my "T-Zone" (thats the eyebrows, forehead, and nose). These cleansing pads help with exfoliating the dry skin. One side of the pad is smooth and the other side of it is textured. I fell in love with these pads the first time I used them.

Ambi Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer

I use this moisturizer during the day to help with the dryness. It lasts a long time because a little bit goes a long way.

Carols Daughter Bring in the Moisture Gentle Face Toner

I use this before I put on make-up. I only wear make-up when I'm going out (Which is rare... I told yall I promise to do better).

(from l to r) Pure Shea Butter, Pure Argan Oil, and Vitamin E oil

Now these are the most important products. The shea butter is the best thing that could have happened to my skin. I makes my skin soooo soft! It's not greasy either. For extra moisture during the winter I would mix the pure vitamin E oil to the shea butter. It lasts all day and my skin looks great! OMG I love that stuff. The vitamin E oil is also very good for your lips.
The Argan oil is something new that I'm trying for my face. I don't use it very often. At night when I wash my face I mix the Argan oil and the Shea butter together. In the morning, my face would feel absolutely wonderful. It also gives me a nice glow. To my understanding, Argan is supposed to improve the elasticity and over all condition of your skin. I'm only 26 and I don't have any wrinkles yet but I want to keep from getting them as long as possible.

Well... That's it... If you all have anything other suggestions for skin care products let me know!

Thanks for reading... :-)

Hello young world!
This post has nothing to do with fashion (sorry).  It's about a more serious matter that is going on over in Uganda, Africa.  Please take about 30 minutes to watch this video.  It really moved me so I'm posting this video where ever I can.  Please feel free to share this video with your twitter followers, facebook family, etc.
