I tend to go dark as soon as the temperatures fall below 70 degrees, but I'm loving this beautiful blush for the cooler seasons this year.
Lesson No. 3 of 2016 — What's for you will not pass you by.
I have had more moments of panic over my destiny this year than I think ever in my life. LOL To be fair, however, I have also been in the midst of pursuing with more gusto than ever. So, I'm giving myself a pass on this one because once you learn to relinquish control because God has given you a glimpse of his dreams for you (!!!) — you realize there is no competition.
Today was a good day. I had the incredibly humbling honor of being recognized as one of Atlanta's 100 Women of Influence by the Atlanta Business League — an organization that fosters the development and enrichment of successful African-American-owned enterprises. I don't own a business (yet) but Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine, for which I serve as editor in chief, is a longtime member of the League and has enjoyed a fruitful relationship for many years. I have actually admired the women who've made this list each year for my entire career in Atlanta and hoped to one day be considered. But, I was completely surprised when the time came this year; thinking to myself: when you think nothing is happening, something is happening. I've been talking about the road to #greater on my social media channels for the past two years, and I accepted this as a nod from God that the work I consider a quiet contribution to the betterment of my community is relevant. I'm always trying to hide in the background though the message that I hope to share with the people around me often pulls me out of the crowd, and I'm reminded that your gift is the reason you were born. And because I said yes to it a long time ago, it won't be ignored ... Not even by me.
I love beauty products like I love food. So, I am always scouring lifestyle and self-care brands for what's new and interesting in cosmetics, creams, cleansers and everything in between. Here's what I'm all into right now.
