Sips of life

I'm drawn to the beauty of the shapes and the purposes of bottles. My idea of recycling bottles is giving it a new purpose to live in my home. Over the years I have accumulated a small collection of pretty ones. Mostly wine bottles from good times. Continuing to flow with the bursts of creativity that flows in my mind for growth and success i have decided to find a place in my city were they allow me to sell my goods.

My Biggest Insiration


I plan to do big things with my career. For a long time i didn't think to follow other makeup artists who have made it and became big stamps in the makeup industry. I know of a bunch off the top, but no one i really admired this much.

Everyday i take a moment of my time to read a piece of her book "Makeup Manual". Her words did not only give me good professional advice but the confidence to believe in myself and truly believe that i can do this. she made it clear to me that my dream and big goal is worth the ride. i can help woman find the easy and fun way to apply their own makeup to make them feel good about themselves using my products. One of my short term goals is to get a position working for Bobbi brown at Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys New York or Bloomingdale's. Iv never wanted anything this much and I'm working very hard to be consistent. i want it so much, i realized i can't stop.

Thank you Bobbi Brown

The Freshest Regimen

How exciting...

I really pay attention to the products i use on myself.
I take this very seriously so...

Let me school you real quick...

Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap is Magic!

You won't ever get a better clean than this. The mixture of oils and vitamin E gives you the best experience in the shower or bath (as i do it) possible!
I personally like the Peppermint for the summer and Almond oil for the winter because the peppermint is so strong when you step foot out the shower you will freeze! which is very refreshing for the hot summer. The Almond in the winter is awesome because of the moisture. Almond will keep you good for that cracking dried out winter feeling. You could use it for just about anything like Washing your clothes, hair, mouth, skin, house etc.

I like to switch it up too...
Nubian Heritage is an awesome brand! With it's gorgeous smell and creamy lather, this soap won my heart over a while ago.

100% Pure African Shea butter! Its everything you need.


*** Hint Hint: if your worried about the Shea butter not completely comming off don't worry! the Dr. Bronners soap will take care of that.

In the summer i like to use oils for a lighter feeling.

Curly Hair!
Basically i don't do much with my hair. I Believe besides washing our hair the natural oils from your scalp will take care of it.

  • Wash every 3 days (dime size amount) w/ Deva Curl low poo

  • Brush, flip, then comb.

  • Emulsify an extremely small amount of Indian hemp in hands then crunch into wet hair turned upside down.

  • *Night before washing my hair: Rosemary oil on fingertips rubbed into the scalp helps stimulate & grow healthy hair!

I live a natural calm positive lifestyle with lots of love and the best Products to make me happy!

Where can i find this stuff?
or almost every stand on 125Th area in Manhattan.
