Eat me, try me, savor me: Breakfast Edition

img_8747-1

Here’s a little known fact about me: I love breakfast. I mean, I love breakfast so much that I find myself lying in bed at night imagining what I’ll have for my first meal of the day and quite honestly, catch myself getting excited about it.
I’m not embarrassed and no, I am not ashamed. I proudly stand by my firm belief that breakfast is what keeps this world together because if it wasn’t for that meal, the world would be a very, very scary place in the wee hours of dawn (but, isn’t it already?).

A beauty guru’s dream, a competitor’s nightmare: Fenty Beauty 

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to your ride or die product, the definition of perfection and your endless beauty craze. No, I’m not talking about the discovery of setting spray (even though that really transformed my life), I’m talking about the latest foundation that hit stores and shook the boots of beauty glamazons and competitors alike. That’s right, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, the musician turned beauty queen.  Continue reading “A beauty guru’s dream, a competitor’s nightmare: Fenty Beauty “

Kombucha Power

WARNING: DO NOT SMELL THE PRODUCT BEFORE TASTING.⚠️

Cleanse your body with a nice cold glass of fermented sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria. Doesn’t that just make you want to run to the nearest bathroom stall and upchuck your last meal? That’s exactly how I felt when I heard the Kombucha train making its stops around town, picking up more people every time it came back around. My hometown is the birth and center for most trending fads, especially if it can be categorized with the health-nuts. Now I’m not a Kombucha-enthusiast or connoisseur in any way. I’m just a curious-mind who decided to jump on the fermented-beverage bandwagon to see what the hype was all about. Besides, you’ll never know if you don’t like it until you try it. When I say “try it” I don’t mean to take one sip and that will be my deciding factor, like what I did with Monster and Rockstar energy drinks. *Cue the gag reflex* (No offense to those who like beverages that taste like battery acid.) My point is, I wanted to try every single flavor, brand, and style of Kombucha to get a solid opinion on it. Continue reading “Kombucha Power”

Hot Seat: Should president’s be allowed to use Twitter negatively for their own perks?

Freedom of speech has been seen as a right of passage for all walks of life. I imagine that back in “horse and carriage days” our ancestors dipped their toes in gossip and shared their opinions over the butter churner. Fast forward to the year 2017 and people are sharing their opinions through social media platforms (i.e. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook (repeat offender) and public forums) within their techie toys for the whole world to see. All it takes is one screenshot, one news article, one curious set of eyes to see something that perhaps cannot go unseen, let’s use Twitter as our shining star.

Apple: Now Taking your Soul as Payment for iPhone X

writtenE

We have finally reached the month of September and you know what that means? I’m talking about Starbucks advertisements invading your personal space with Pumpkin Spice Latte flavored EVERYTHING, seasoned decor that you refuse to put away the rest of the year because “it fits your theme” and Uggs, the shoes you can’t wear in the office but will try with diligence and resistance.  Now, don’t get me wrong all of this is exciting enough to get your panties in a bunch but something bigger just came our way and I think you know what I’m going to say. September is known for much more than what I just mentioned, this month is famously known for being the staple “iPhone release month”. Yup, the new iPhone 8 and better yet, the iPhone X has just been announced and it’s more extravagant than ever. Continue reading “Apple: Now Taking your Soul as Payment for iPhone X”
