Today’s Topic/Question: My Top 5 Favorite Quotes

Day Four!!!

Before we start, you know the deal!! DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. I am keeping everything RAW here! Ok, Thank you! But for this is shouldn’t be that hard.

To be transparent I only picked this topic for today because I am kind of short on time and I know this is one i’ll be able to produce quickly.

My top 5 quotes are a mixture of Love & Life quotes. Some stem from Movies/TV/Media, some are from just people I know personally, some are just ones came up with along this walk of life.

  • “BE YOU!!” Always something I live by. Be Yourself, people will Love you for who you are, and if not, they aren’t meant to be in your life. And THAT TOO is OK. Who you are is enough for the right people.
  • “I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can‚Äôt-live-without-each-other love.” ~ Carrie, Sex in the City. I mean this in a nut shell is Me. Like I can’t say it better myself. If you can do a day without communicating w/ me…then you can go the rest of your life. And you are not for me.
  • “Be the Rainbow is someone else’s cloud.” ~ Maya Angelou. Sometimes I feel like this quote is a blessing to that person and can drain you if you are doing for for wrong people. Usually, being there for someone for me means just listening sometimes and that’s all the need. Not allowing them to dwell on the negative at least while they are with you (or talking to you). It’s nice to have someone who you can talk to that’ll bring your day up. But also be able to recognize some people will take advantage of that and use you. So you also have to be cautious who you do those things for. Cause it will drain you and leave you feeling hurt.
  • “The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.” IDK where I heard this from or who to credit…LOL but I posted this on my Instagram the other day (@TotalDivaRea). But I think this quote is self explanatory. If you find you are happier in a relationship, find someone (who is FOR YOU) and be in that. If you find your are happiest being alone, then don’t feel forced to be in a commitment, because that what society says you should be doing. Happiness is determined by how YOU feel not how other’s think you should feel. Remember that, EVERYTHING IS NOT FOR EVERYONE, and there’s not one way map for life. What’s fulfilling for one, may not be fulfilling for you.
  • “Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching.”Um, yea. Just when you think you know it all, life will hit you like a ton of bricks and just like that your studying life again.

I can go on and on with quotes I love, but those are the one that came to kind at the moment because of what’s going in my life right now I think.

What are some of your favorite quotes? List them in the comments below!

30 Day Self-Reflection Online Journal Challenge – Day 3

Today’s Topic/Question: How am I feeling right now?

Day Three!!!

Before we start though, Disclaimer ALERT!! DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. I am keeping everything RAW here! Ok, Thank you!

I’m going to hop right in on this one because as a Cancer…My moods can change in 2.5seconds, so hopefully by the end of this blog it’ll be the same! This will actually probably be a quick one b/c it’s a simple question, so simple answer.

Since I writing this in the AM I actually woke up in a good mood. But I also have a lot on my mind. Which I guess if I can put an actual emotion to what I feel…I would say anxious & motivated. I spent most of my evening editing a video for my channel. So waking up I felt super motivated to continue focusing on my businesses. Anxious, well because I guess I’m looking forward to what the future may hold me me and the people in my life. Relationships & Friendships. I Also woke this morning, feeling like I need to make an adjustment to what time I go to bed and to put my DND on a little earlier.

So yea that’s how I feel today (as of 9:30AM)…Motivated & Anxious!

How are you guys feeling RIGHT NOW??

30 Day Self-Reflection Online Journal Challenge – Day 2

Today’s Topic/Question: What am I afraid of?

Day two!!!

So today’s question is something I’ve been asked a few times since I’ve started dating. Not something I’ve actually thought about on my own prior to someone asking me.

Now I before I begin, I feel like I need to do this disclaimer every post, DO NOT comment on any grammar issues during these 30 days…I don’t grammar check when I write in my physical journal and I won’t do it here. I am keeping everything RAW here! Ok, Thank you!

The first time someone asked me, I said failure. And that still holds True. I am afraid of failure. Now failure holds different to everyone. For me it means starting something and not finishing it or it not reaching the success I feel I/it deserves. That includes failures in different walks of life. For me mainly in my business, not reaching the goal of Self-Employment/Entrepreneurship. That is a big part of my hustle! YouTube, being a Makeup Artist & running my Online Store (AND ALL of those are linked BTW, just click on them! Shameless Plug!! ūüôā IDC…LOL). There are a bunch of other passions I have, i.e., photography, (pretty much I am a creative). ONE OF THESE NEED TO happen!! What’s your plan B you ask? I feel like a lot of people ask entrepreneurs this. Now don’t get me wrong I HAVE a FT job, but I make sure I keep the end goal at the forefront of my mind. Sometimes I get caught up in the Job that I have to wheel myself back in and say to myself, “HEY HEY, this is JUST to finance my DREAM…Re-FOCUS!” I actually talk to a guy who is also an entrepreneur but has a really good FT job. It seems like sometimes we are in the same boat at different times. We get comfortable making the money we make at our jobs, and almost let our end goals fall to the background. So I know there is work I need to do and I am committed to that process. So my Plan B, is to continue focusing on my Plan A!

I feel like as soon as you feel like you failed…them BOOM!!! You’ve made it! So that’s the energy I try to keep and speak into existence.

Another thing I fear & I didn’t think about until some said it to me and them I realized, HEY! I fear that too. And that is my child dying before me. And that is something I don’t even want to think about, but in this world & being Black in this world…Well you guys know how that goes…I not going to sit here and dwell on this fear b/c…I just can’t even begin to imagine…BUT, It is something to fear and worry about. As much as we don’t want to as parents.

What Do you fear??

Day Two Down!!!!

30 Day Self-Reflection Online Journal Challenge – Day 1

Today’s Topic/Question: What do I need more of in my life?

So going into day one, I am going to write this as if I would my actual private journal. I want this to be as raw as possible. So don’t grammar check me in the comments section! I said I was going to be as open as I can (while still maintaining some sense of privacy, depending on the context of the question). But overall, I am an open book and lucky for you guys it helps that I am single so I really don’t have to worry about protecting a “partner’s” privacy as well.

But today’s question is something I’ve actually thought about over the past 2-3 years in general, which ultimately once I understood what exactly I needed, the answer to this question aided me in ending my previous relationship.

What do I need more in life?

Love, Money, Support, Spontaneity!! (And in that order)

Simple answer right? Oh y’all wanted an explanation? LOL I got you…

Love, So let me be more specific. I have Love in my life, friends, family & you guys! But what I mean by love I mean a romantic love. Now, I have been enjoying being single, but I’ll never sit here and say I don’t enjoy relationships and who I am in them. I also understand if/when that happens for me again, It’ll be the last time I’ll commit. I got one more good relationship in me…After that…Who knows. But I think I’ve reached a place of Self-Love, Self-Worth and spent the last 2 years Self-Reflecting, where I know I am ready for that when the opportunity presence itself again. We are always working on ourselves and meeting new people can show you more of what you want out of life, so I understand that I may not just FALL right into another relationship, but I am open to learning and growing with someone.

Money, I mean does this really need an explanation? More Money TO ME means, one less stressor. And that’s on that. Granted having more money will bring on a different stressor, but I think I’ve out grown the latter, like ok, I get it I know what it like to live paycheck to paycheck, what’s next?

Support, I mean now I have a GREAT support system right now. Thank GOODNESS for my mother! My Nia is spending the next year in St. Croix and that is amazing!! And I am beyond thankful & grateful!! She getting the RED JELLO for real (inside joke amongst my parents!) Support with my business someone who understands what I need to get done and who will push me and encourage me, obviously I can encourage myself, and my friends as well, but it’s nothing like having that one person in your corner cheering you on. Also If I think long term or into the near future, Nia will be back…LOL and as a single mother, sometimes things get so crazy you will definitely lose track of taking care of you. It gets tough and it’s nothing like having that person. I didn’t go through postpartum depression, but I feel like I may have gone through depression in general when she was around 2, being overwhelmed and unhappy. So having an intact support system is not only something I want more of, but I think it is necessary for my mental health in the long run.

Spontaneity, THIS!!! This is just something I crave!! It not something I get often! AT ALL. I think it is just something I need. Not all the time, but just a lot more of. Wether is a random last minute date or a random weekend getaway…JUST LOVE a good surprise and spontaneous behavior at times, especially since I am baby free so it’s more realistic right now!

Now at the end of the day, happiness is not by seeking more, but to learn to enjoy less, so that when you do get more, you appreciate it more. So I’ve learned to just enjoy what I have (right now), but keeping in mind what there is something greater. What is for me will be for me and when it’s my time I’ll just make sure I stay ready so I can accept that!! I am sure my opinion of that statement may change and what I want will change, but for now…Not sure If I answered this correctly, but those are the things that came to mine.

What can you think of that you want more out of life?



Cruelty-Free Cosmetics!! NU Evolution Cosmetics

I got the opportunity to try out a line that is new to me, called NU Evolution Cosmetics. Of course I had to come through and share with you guys my thoughts about this line. BUT before we jump into the nitty gritty of this line, I wanted to quickly go through the uniqueness of what this line is about.

This line is Cruelty-free, Vegan-Friendly & Gluten free brand. Their products contains Natural and Organic ingredients. So if you are conscience of the ingredients you like to use in your makeup or just a makeup junkie in general this is definitely a line you might want to try out. “For the Beauty Junkie WITHOUT the Junk” Defiantly check out THIS section of there site to see all the ingredient that don’t use, which include, Talc, Parabens, Dimethicone, etc. It also includes some details of why these ingredients are not ideal for cosmetics as it pertains to our health. So definitely read up on that, I found it super informative.
Ok so know that I’ve gotten the basics out of the way, let me dive into the products I received.
I received 2 Eye Shadows, Onyx & Versailles. Onyx is a Matte Black, it does have some shimmer specks in the pot, but it applies matte. Versailles is more of a Champagne shade, again it does have some shimmer specs, it does apply with a little sheen, but somewhere between a matte & an satin. They applied very smooth and were very pigmented. All of the eye shadows are individual and retail for $20 each.
I also received one of their Pressed Blushes, the shade is called Flushed. I would describe this shade as a muted pink. The shade on this is really nice, however I did find on my complexion I didn’t show up as well on me. I think if you are on the caramel side or fairer this shade who show up great. But no biggie, this can defiantly go in my make up kit to use on a client. The blushes are also sold individually, and retail for $28.
Next up is the Lipstick, The shade I received was Diva, a fuchsia shade. I REALLY liked this lipstick. It is super hydrating and moisturizing. To be honest, I am not usually a fan of “natural based” lipsticks because I find that it end up lacking the the pigment that I like, and surprisingly this lipstick was highly pigmented. These lipsticks retail for $30.
Color Corrector
Lastly, is the Base products!! Camouflage Cream, Foundation & the pressed powder. I am always here for a great foundation and base. So I was really excited about trying these out for sure. The Camouflage Cream shade I received is Disguise. Which is definitely on more of the peachy corrector type of shade. This cream is really thick and pigmented and a little bit goes a long way. Now this type of corrector is a little too light for me but, I don’t know if you guys remember, but I talked about on L.A. Girl pro concealer I thought was a little to dark so when I received this I felt it was actually perfect to mix with my L.A. Girl pro orange corrector and it worked out really well. This products retails for $32.
Next is probably my favorite item OVERALL, which is the Complete Cover Foundation. My PERFECT match is the shade 104. When I say PERFECT match, I mean PERFECT MATCH!!!! The shade is spot on, I didn’t need to do anything to “make it work,” IT JUST WORKED. The coverage is definitely build-able, I would say a Medium to Full Coverage. Not cakey at all. I would say the finish is definitely skin like, but my skin was stayed matte (which I think related to the next product I am going to talk about). This foundation was amazing!! Definitely somewhere the top of my list as far as, favorite foundations go. I couldn’t think of one thing I didn’t like about this foundation. Love the packaging for sure, it is plastic (though I prefer glass bottles), but it does have the airless pump with is a plus. This foundation retails for $47, & IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! Just take my money!!! LOL
Lastly is the Pressed Powder Foundation. This is my 2nd favorite item that I received. I used this powder to set my foundation. These two together are like PB&J! Match made! The shade that I used in the powder is 204. The powder is also great to just apply after a spot conceal and wear it as your foundation. It gives medium to full coverage, so also build-able. Also love the packaging on this as well, the compact is super thin and elegant. Light enough for travel or to just trow in your purse and go. The powder retails for $45.
Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of this line. The fact that there products are able to perform just as well as the brands the use the harsh chemicals, is really impressive. One thing I would like to see is this brand grow, as far as shade ranges go. It’s a decent start but can definitely tons of room for improvement. I would’ve definitely loved to try out a loose powders because y’all know I love a good loose powder,  but they did not have a shade for me. Which is of course discouraging, but they did have the basics I needed and I can appreciate that for sure. But if you are darker than me, you definitely won’t be able to find a foundation shade. But I also have to keep in mind that this is a Boutique Makeup Line, so it is on a waaaayyy smaller scale. But I highly recommend to  check out this line.
What items would you thinking about trying out? Leave it down in the comments section.
Check out the video below, showing ALL of the items in action!!

Lingerie for Hips & Curves??

Oh yes!! You read that title right!

After having my daughter I wanted to find some sexy pieces but I gained weight in a lot of areas (for the good) *wink* So going to the local Victoria Secret…It honestly just wasn’t cutting it.

So after some research I found a site that literally offers Lingerie for sizes 10-28, Hips and Curves!!

red babydoll


They have tons of cute & sexy items. I know I fall between the lower end of the sizes, BUT my biggest issues is the bust area. Having a small waist and them a size G bust makes it SUPER difficult to find lingerie that fits me. And this site also over some larger cup sizes!


So definitely go check out the site! let me know in the comments which pice is your favorite!



NEW Moda Collection!!!

I did a unboxing on my channel last week, but I also wanted to post some pictures of the NEW brush sets available from the Royal and Langnickel. These are the MODA MYTHICAL line! So Let’s just jump right into this, because you guys already know how I love the brushes from Royal & Langnickel so there’s no need for me to get into that right?


Star Travel Kit

This is a 6pc set (include holographic zip pouch, not pictured). This is giving me all types of ¬†unicorn vibes.

(Don’t forget to use EBATES to get that cash back as well!!) Price just under $17 on the Walmart site, you can’t go wrong.

  • Blush Brush:¬†Define your cheeks for perfectly blended results, I also like this brush to apply my pressed or loose finishing powder
  • Complexion Brush:¬†Create an even, natural finish with cream or powder foundation (also works very will with liquids)
  • Domed Shadow Brush:¬†Apply eye shadow smoothly to define eyes.
  • Crease Brush:¬†Perfect for precision blending in the crease of the eye, however since this brush falls in the larger side of my mini eyes, I like to use this brush to contour my nose, or apply a sweep of color to my lid or inner tear duct area.
  • Angle Eyeliner Brush:¬†Soft angle brush with a chisel edge for a precise line at the lash line or brows (By far my FAVORITE sized angled brush).
  • MODA¬†Holographic Zip Case


Splash Travel Kit

Can you say MERMAID!! Ok Ariel, I see you!! HA! This 6pc set (includes holographic flip case, not pictured) is for all the mermaid lovers out there. This set can be found on the Royal & Langnickel site for under $20 (make sure to use my coupon code: TOTALDIVAREA for 10% off) Check the out HERE!

  • Highlight & Glow Brush:¬†Perfectly shaped to apply precise highlights to your entire face.
  • Crease Brush:¬†Perfect for precision blending in the crease of the eye.
  • Eye Shader Brush:¬†Sweep and blend eye shadow over the entire lid.

New Arrivals from Coach

I usually don’t do these kinds of post, but I just HAD to come and share something that caught my eye!!

These new Coach Fall Floral Handbags Tho??? Bomb.com is an understatement.

I am not on the market for a new handbag, nor is it in my budget, but that doesn’t mean I can’t admire from afar and at the same time share it with you guys just incase you are like me and just like new things to look at and admire, or if you got some extra money you want to use to gift yourself with something nice…Check out some of these new Fall ready Handbags!

First up, Foldover Crossbody Clutch in Glovetanned Leather w/ Tea Rose Tooling.

Price – $250

Color – Dusty Rose

Direct Link –¬†http://go.magik.ly/ml/76ta/

Foldover Crossbody Clutch In Glovetanned Leather With Tea Rose Tooling

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have been having this thing for crossbody bags for the past few months. They are super convenient and can hold everything¬†I¬† need, cash, debit cards, phone & lip balm. This Dusty Rose color is so Fall. If you are a simple and/or don’t like carrying much with you, and enjoy being hands free (which is my personal favorite feature about a crossbody), this is a great option, but it’s not as expensive as I thought.

The Coach Swagger 27 in Glovetanned Leather w/ Tea Rose Tooling is next on my Wish List.

Price – $695

Color Options – Black or Pale Blue

Direct Link –¬†http://go.magik.ly/ml/76tj/

Coach Swagger 27 In Glovetanned Leather With Tea Rose Tooling

This bag is a lot bigger than the 1st one. Obviously right? LOL. This one has 2 color options, which Black would be my preference. It features inside zip & snap pockets, fabric lining and a detachable shoulder strap, so being hands free is still an option with this handbag, but holds A LOT more!

Lastly, is the priciest, but I just couldn’t deny how gorgeous this bag is! The Rogue in Pebble Leather w/ Tea Rose, is just a FABULOUS¬†bag!!

Price – $1200

Color Options – Melon or Beechwood

Direct Link –¬†http://go.magik.ly/ml/76tp/

Rogue In Pebble Leather With Tea Rose

I mean honestly, how can you not like this bag? This Pebble Leather handbag has an inside zip and french purse pockets. It has fabric AND Suede lining. The straps can be linked together so you can, again, get that crossbody feature that I love. This bag is also compatible with the Coach interchangeable straps, so you can change it up and personalize it to your style. Doing the most is necessary with this bag.

Coach is really on to something with this Rose Tooling detail. Which if I am honest, I’ve never been one for “flowery” style things, but these items here have made me a believer.

You can check out the rest on the NEW ARRIVALS from Coach HERE! Check it out and comment below what are some of your wish list picks!

Moisture Love Review

Hey Divas!!!

So I am back with a products review on some new products I received! I’ve been dying to try out this line so I am so stoked to share my thoughts on this line.

Blog Picture.jpg

When I first caught wind of this line it was called Coco Curls, but they have rebranded themselves to focus on what their line is truly about…M-O-I-S-T-U-R-E! Moisture is main key to maintaining and caring for natural hair. I am so fortunate to be able to collaborate with this brand to bring you this review. NOW, don’t get it twisted even though this is a collaboration I am not being paid for this review, so all opinions are my own and my own experience with the line. Since that is out of the way, let’s just get into this review so I can answer all of your questions, and justify you going out and purchasing these products.

The products that I received are the Gentle Embrace Hydration Shampoo, Deep Indulgence Replenishing Conditioner, Sealed with a Kiss s Finishing Oil and Kindred Spirits Moisture & Style Cream.

Let’s start off, the smell. The smell is pretty consistent throughout the line. Smells sweet like fresh baked pastries or something…LOL But definitely not overbearing but quite appealing.

For the Gentle Embrace Hydration Shampoo it is a pretty basic shampoo, has really nice consistency and creates a nice lather. Not a lot of bells & whistles to pull out. My hair was clean but not stripped, so if you like a non-stripping shampoo I highly recommend this one.

The Deep Indulgence Replenishing Conditioner is SUPER THICK!!! It is not runny at all, I kind of almost wished it was in a jar for me to scoop out. But I ended up using this as a Deep Conditioner, I only left in on for about 15-20mins w/ my Heat Therapy Wrap. My hair was really soft and I was able to detangle my hair pretty good with this conditioner.

The Kindred Spirits Moisture & Style Cream‚Ķwe are Kindred Spirits!!! This is probably my favorite out of the entire line! When I first tried it, I tried it out on a Twist out which came out SUPER DEFINED and soft. A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY! I can’t stress this enough, even though the consistency is very light the moisture packs a HUGE punch. The next few times I tried it, I used it for my wash & go‚Ķand y‚Äôall KNOW I am not here for wash n gos usually, but with this product I must say I am a believer. My hair was So soft and defined, I got about a good 3-4 days out of both styles, which is about how often I do my hair anyway so that was perfect.

Lastly, the Sealed with a Kiss s Finishing Oil was a nice sealant, I used it 2 different ways (kind of) LOL When I did my twist out I did the LCO method when I did my wash n go I did my usually LOC method! It worked out nicely each way. The oil added a nice sheen to my hair as well as locking in the moisture!

Twist Out
Twist Out using the LCO Method

Wash N Go
Wash N Go using the LOC (Stretched using Banding Method)

Not that we have gotten the basics out of the way, let’s get down to the nitty gritty…Pricing. The pricing range is $16.50-$27.50. It is by no means the cheapest on the market but for what you are getting and and how long the products will last, to me it is completely worth it. So you’ll definitely get your moneys worth.

Did I mentioned this is a Black Own Business?? If not, well it is! And I’ll spend and extra few coins to support a B.O.B. #FACTS

Overall, I really enjoyed these products. The Moisture was on 100! Which is a great thing! The Style Cream is pretty light weight so for it to provide that much moisture it is mind boggling. In combination with the Hair Oil, I went 4-5 days without having to re-moisturize my hair and I had no product build up. My hair stayed super throughout the week and kept its elasticity.

I would defiantly repurchase, these products they are amazing & well worth a try!!

If you haven’t tried it, are you going to try it after checking out this review?? Let me know in the comments below!

Oh and don’t think I forgot, I will have a tutorial up on my channel for both the Twist Out & Wash N Go So make sure you SUBSCRIBE¬†to my channel so you don’t miss when those go up!!



Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Review


So I decided to step back into the drugstore foundation game, after being out for over 2 years. So I know I am late on it, but i decided to finally try the Maybelline Fit Me Matte +Poreless.

This foundation claims to be a tone & texture fitting foundation w/ a natural fit. This formula is for Normal to Oily Skin. I also says it contains blurring micro-powders that erase pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless-looking finish.


Light creamy formula with no distinct scent.


Now I will won‚Äôt say that I loved it right off the bat, because I didn‚Äôt. The shade I picked up is Coconut 355. The first time applied it and wore it all day  it felt like my skin ended up being really oily a lot sooner than some of my other foundations. Also the shade to me was a bust! See picture below. It was super ashy and kinda gray.


…Now I knew since that was 1st drugstore foundation in a long while, I decided 2 give it a 2nd chance. So, I went back to Walgreens and picked up a deeper shade, Mocha 360. I did end up mixing the 2 together to get my perfect match, but that is not a big deal to me. Now, once I found a shade combo that worked for me & found an application that worked, I was impressed.


I love this formulation because it provides a smooth, matte medium-full coverage look while still looking natural! This foundation is great for daily use and priced under $10 you have nothing to lose. For a flawless finish, I apply a dime-quarter sized dollop (depending on coverage wanted)  on the back of my hand and applied and blended it out with a damp beauty blender. To set the foundation, I then used my usual Black Opal Finishing Powder.


  • Great, Competitive Price Point
  • Matte finish
  • Lightweight
  • Doesn‚Äôt oxidize
  • Buildable


  • May have to mix shades for perfect match
  • Not long-wearing
  • Doesn‚Äôt stay matte all day
  • May have to mix shades for perfect match
  • Can cause break outs

Have you guys tried this foundation? What your thoughts and experiences?
