Fall is almost here, which means it’s time for Fall Fashion, Back, to School and time to start a new skincare routine. YAYYYYY!!!! Head on over to Macy’s to grab your gift with purchase offer from Lancome Paris. Hurry, supplies are limited and you don’t want to miss out on this. I’ve been looking for a skincare regimen to help with my discoloration and uneven skin tone but it has been hard to find a product that does NOT contain hydroquinone. I have to stay away from hydroquinone. It’s not good or gentle on my skin, especially on my face. Most skin lightening creams that treat uneven skin tone have hydroquinone as the main ingredient, so, trying to find a gentle and effective skincare product to even out my skin tone is extremely challenging. And for the record, I’m not trying to lighten my complexion. What I want to do is balance and even it out, instead of having multiple batches of different shades on my cheeks and jawline. So, I came across Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo, it’s an at-home peel treatment that works overnight. There are two phases to the treatments; I’ll apply Phase 1 for 14 nights and then Phase 2 for another 14 nights, for total of 28 nights. The formula for Phase 1 contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) from Fruit Acids and Quinoa Husk Extract. The active ingredients in Phase 2 are a combination of Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. All of these ingredients are combined in a concentrated amount to make the Lancome Visionnaire Crescendo Progressive Night Peel a powerful tool in my skincare routine. I will do I full review when I complete the full 28 nights of treatment. So, back to the Lancome gift with purchase offer from Macy’s….since I had to have the Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo night peel, my total gifts from Lancome are worth up to $200. In addition, to the night peel , I chose to get the following gifts with purchase:
- Lancome Visionnaire SPF 20 Multi-Correcting Cream (To correct and perfect my skin texture)
- Lancome Bi-Facial Face Look (Eye makeup remover, mascara, primer and gold highlighter.)
- Lancome La Vie Est Belle fragrance trio (It smells so good. Like refined baby powder—if that even exists.)
- Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (Cuz’ ya’ll know I got to stay looking young.)
- Lancome 10-day foundation shade sampler
- A blue Lancome cosmetic bag

Ladies, it’s almost time for spring. My favorite season. The flowers will be blooming and so should your wardrobe. Spring time calls for sexy heels and stylish pedicures. If you find yourself getting ready for a spring fling or you just simply want to doll yourself up for a spring outing or a fabulous spring brunch, make sure you dress to kill!!! Wear chic feminine shoes, like the ones pictured above from the Marchesa Spring 2018 fashion shoe collection and turn on the glam factor with black lace socks.
It’s Friday, time to get loose, be care-free, stress-free and party all weekend long, but first things first, don’t forget to stay lit and stay fit! Add some fitness into your life. An activity or physical hobby that you enjoy and that lifts your spirit.

Victoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and wife to soccer star David Beckham, is known for her chic, minimalist, and timeless style. She wears lots of solid colors and in the past I considered her the “High-Heels Queen” because the paparazzi always captured photos of her wearing stylish high-heels, now-a-day’s though she has kicked her high-heels shoe addiction to the curve and instead wears more sensible shoes. If you ever wanted to mimic her style then this is how you can dress like Victoria Beckham: it’s easy–all you have to do is head to Target on April 9 for the launch of the Victoria Beckham Target collection. She has collaborated with Target to create a womens, girls, toddlers, and baby fashion line.
Here are my top six favorite pieces from the Victoria Beckham Target collection.
Look #1: I can picture a true fashionista wearing this bold pink outfit to brunch to sip on Mimosas.Look #2: The Victoria Beckham Target fashion collection includes this chic orange plus-size dress. Look #3: I love how you can dress down this short jumpsuit. Casual but chic just like Victoria Beckham. Look #4: A modern LBD (little black dress) to wear to work. Look #5: I’m in love with the silhouette of this LBD. I’m not a fan of the exaggerated scale of the two flowers on the front but it’s still a great dress. Look #6: This look is from the toddlers fashion collection. It’s two little cuties in a grey knitted bunny pant outfit. The perfect outfit for the kids to wear to an Easter egg scavenger hunt.
