HAPPY NEW YEAR! It is about to be 2022 and I wanted to just make a post about how great 2021 went. It had some high and low points but over all I learned so much. I enjoyed myself this year and I really believe that that is because I learned so much about hustling, finances and myself.

The year of 2021 was definitely about discovery. I was a part of so many things I lose count. I learned how to buy, sell and trade crypto, joined Shipt, got on the Shifts by Snag a job app, got to do jobs for Intellifluence, completed jobs for Dscout app, sold well on Depop - Mercari -Ebay platforms I mean the list just goes on and on. I was very impressed with the meals I made and how I was able to control myself with social media and make it more like work than a hang out. 
As I get older I am so much happier with just small things in life and a sentence I said to myself a lot this year was "I have enough" or "I have more than enough" I was very thankful out loud not just in my head. I enjoyed the time I got to spend with my family. I was just very grateful for everything I have despite everything that is going on in the world. I'm really excited for this new year and I think it's going to be power packed with many changes and challenges.
I'm here for ALL of it! The challenges made me really look into myself to see if I really had what it took to stand on my own and I do! I could have buckled but that's not my personality. I came from the mud and I'm used to things getting gritty and I'm proud of myself for being able to handle it. I'm looking forward to learning even more new things, making more money and just growing into the woman I want to see. I'm not everybody's cup of tea but I'm also not for everybody. I'm for the streets (That's a joke....)  I'm grateful to God for another year and I can't wait to see what he has in store for me in 2022! I know it's going to be good🀎

Have a Happy Blessed New Year! Don't forget to come see me in 2022! LOVE YALLπŸ’™

Check out the 2021 New Years Eve wrap up on YouTube:

 I wasn't to sure about getting this color of wig. It was a cross between a ash purplish pink. I was calling it and "ashy lilac" but if you look this color up it actually #612 the wig also has a gray type of look to it. At $9.99 on sale there was nothing to lose.

I was extremely impressed with the unit. The wig cap was in tact and the hair was soft and there was no tangling.
It was time to get out of my comfort zone and try this new style of wig length and color. To my surprise it looked great!
The color is way more true in these photos than the ones at the top. There is more of a purple hue to the wig. I liked the length and the loose curls. The bang is also very stylish and matched with the wig perfectly.
Pulling the wig unit up into a half ponytail was also a wonderful surprise because usually you cannot pull off this style without the tracks of the hair showing. This wig was weft very nicely and because it was made well I could pull this half up half down style off.
This amazon short bob wig in a #612 was an absolute steal! I'm sure the wig cost more now but when you see these sales I would jump on them. I'm very happy with my purchase and wouldn't mind this same wig style in a more pink hue. I like the lilac type of look on me. The color is different in a way that it stands out but it's not loud so I could wear this look out of the house with no problem.

Here is the actual video review of this same Amazon wig on YouTube:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out the content! Here is another wig review and try on for a Long Wet and Wavy Amazon Wig Unit:

                                                             AMAZON WIG REVIEW









 I've had this little Imagic 12 flash color make up case/palette for years now. I know it has to be about 3-4 years I've been using this same make up case and it has been great for creating: eyebrows, eyeliner, lipstick colors, lipliner, and you can even combine colors to do your actual foundation.

I didn't do any foundation for my make up on this particular day. I wanted to challenge myself to use ONLY the Imagic 12 flash color case and maybe some lip-gloss and a little powder.
As you can see I am going to start with a bare face and see what type of look I can come up with with no other make-up other than my Imagic 12 flash color case. This should be interesting. 
Half way there! So far we have brown eyebrows, pink eyeshadow, golden eyeliner, peach lips with a brown outline and gold in the middle (very pretty combination)
Here is a complete look! All that was added was some powder to keep my eyebrows from wiping off, lip-gloss to go over my combined lipstick colors and of course a curly wig. I was just trying to do a very basic everyday make up look. It's really nice to be able to do your makeup like this everyday with one product.
I'm a huge fan of the iMagic 12 flash color case palette. It's so convenient for a person on the go with not a lot of time for make up or a big budget for make up. There are so many looks and combinations to come up with in one small palette. The looks are endless.

Here is a video from over (3) years ago with me doing another more detailed make-up look with the iMagic 12 Flash Color Case and setting it with cornstarch. It was more of a joke but it actually came out pretty nice.

Thank you so much for watching and reading. I hope you enjoyed and check out this blog about 



If you're ever getting tired of a certain kind of dish: don't be shy about shaking things up!  Although you could reinvent your entire plate, there are things you can do to increase the intrigue of nearly any meal that you love.


These are four of the most creative ways to add some heat and flavor to your food while still getting to enjoy the familiar flavors that you love.

Unique Spices

We all know about cayenne and chile powder, but why not take it further?  In southwestern American states, there's a popular spice called chiltepin.


Made from powdered chiltepin peppers, this fine red grain is incredibly spicy and quickly adds heat to any dish without adding much flavor outside of it.  This ingredient is the best way to heat up familiar dishes without changing their flavor too much.  


There's a lot of hot flavor in this, so a little chiltepin goes a long way!  If you're interested in trying this, ensure you buy the full powder instead of trying to make it from dried peppers yourself since it can be hazardous to breathe in while blending.

Fun Dipping Sauces

Dipping sauces can change the flavor of any dish without having to change the steps of making it!  This could mean serving a dish with fun pepper jelly, or making your own unique sauce.


If there's any fast-food chain you love that has a tasty spicy or tangy sauce, consider looking up homemade duplicates that you can try in your kitchen!  This is a fun way to try out making your own sauces while getting to make it as spicy or mild as you'd like.

Creative Combinations

If you're used to the classics and want something fresh, consider replacing parts of the recipe to boost the flavor some.  This could mean replacing the cheese in chicken cordon bleu with pepper jack or adding buffalo sauce to your favorite hollandaise when you make eggs benedict.  Combining spicy and creamy together ensures that it doesn't devour the original flavor of the dish but amplifies it and makes it something more playful.


Almost any dish can have items shipped out or added to make it spicier, like replacing celery in your mirepoix with jalapenos to keep the same bright green texture while adding spice. So don't be afraid to get creative.

Sometimes Spice Isn't Capsaicin.

Although most people think of hot peppers when they think of heat: capsaicin isn’t the only way to make a dish burn in a good way!  Instead, consider spicing it up in other ways. For example, for desserts, cinnamon can add a lot of unexpected heat.


Although it's usually used in smaller amounts, cinnamon, when enough is used, can quickly build into a pleasant warmth and is the reason why Altoids and Big Red gum are known for a nice burn. 


In savory dishes, consider including horseradish!  This root can pack a major punch and is the main ingredient in American wasabi: so you know it’s hot.  It’s a delicious and healthy ingredient you can add to almost any savory dish to create a complex flavor.

 I have been wanting a deep fried Oreo for years! Every time I would go to an amusement park or fair the stand for deep fried Oreos wasn't open. I was so intrigued about these deep fried Oreos I said "I'm going to make them myself from home" I was surprised at how little bit of ingredients to make them. Here is everything you need:

This is it! (Plus the milk I forgot to put in the photo) 
-Pack of Oreos
- 1 Cup Pancake Mix
-2/3 Cup of milk (pictured below)
-1 egg
-1 1/2 Teaspoon vegetable oil
-Confectioner Sugar (To sprinkle on top when the Oreos are finished)
This is all you need to make deep fried Oreos at home. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and make a nice batter to dip the Oreos. 
My batter was a little thin so I added some more pancake mix to make it just a tad more thick but not too thick. Add the milk a little at a time so you can get the batter exactly how you would like it. Here is the fun part...Dip your Oreos with a slotted spoon and put them in the hot oil.
I used the deepest pan I have to fry in. Make sure you have enough oil in the pan to almost immerse the Oreo. They cook extremely quick so make sure to turn them quickly after about a minute or two. It's very similar to how funnel cakes cook and taste.
Take them out put them on a plate with paper towels. Sprinkle the confectioner sugar on top and enjoy!
They turned out amazing! I ate all 12 (That's not good) but that is how good they were. I can't wait to do these with family because it reminds me of carnival/fair/amusement park food and I think it makes for a good time with a group of people. Make sure to give these a try for your next game night or gathering. Thank you for stopping by and have a great one!











Today started out like any normal day. I blogged, filmed some videos and got most of my online work done. I go to edit the video in the afternoon on my iPad and that was a no go it said "Not enough space" so I say no problem I'll edit on my iPhone and I got the same message "Not enough space" I deleted alot of apps and pictures and no matter what I did it still read "Not enough space" This was only 7GB for the two video clips. Any other time my storage balances back to about 13 or 14 GB this time it jumped to 22 GB it cuts me off around 23-24 GB so there was no way I was uploading this You Tube video. I wasn't happy about this at all.
So now I'm livid! I haven't uploaded a video in almost a month and uploading to You Tube is one of my top creative outlets. It has been one of my most enjoyable creative outlets (besides blogging :) So now I'm on the hunt to see what programs I can use. My computer is not the top of the line I only have like 8 ram or something like that lol. I was looking for online editors you don't have to put on your computer and I found Veed.io which I may try next but in the middle of this search I found gold! A guy explains there is a free video editor inside of Windows 10. I just got my laptop a month or so ago and I have Windows 10. I looked in the search bar and there it was. I went from being tired to extremely excited. I got up made a quick two clip video and put it in my computer.
Windows 10 video editor is very simple and beginner friendly. I was able to put a video together with a beginning, middle and end  with backround music in about 30 minutes. The splits are not as sharp as iMovie but they can work. Overall I'm giving the program 5 stars because it did what I needed done without the computer glitching or dying on me (which both have happened before with other editing programs) The export was quick. I exported my file to the desktop of my computer in under 5 minutes (this was a 6 minute video) 
I'm very happy I learned to do this within 1 hour. I wasn't going to let it rest until I was able to upload a YouTube video. I'm glad I was pushed in the corner to learn to video edit with something else other than iMovie. I will be looking for video editing alternatives even if they are paid as long as it's low cost it might be worth it. Check out the actual video below that I edited on Windows 10 for free!


Thank you for stopping by! Hoped you learned something new because there is always more than one way to skin a cat (My age is truly showing) Have a good one and come back now ya hear!



 Doing custom press on nails from home is extremely easy. All you need is any shape of press on nail (make sure they are full cover) Any type of nail stand, and some type of sticky putty to attach the press on nails.

Take your sticky putty and put your press on nails on your stands. These are for a (24) set of custom nails to be sold later on. You can also do these just for yourself or for friends and family.
To keep them all together while designing them I cut a gift box from The Dollar Tree in half and made it strong with some colored duct tape. It just makes it easier when cmoving multipe sets of  press on nails around.
Now that your press on nails are set up and ready to be painted it's time to pick out your nail polish colors. I'm going with a combination of pink and tan.
My colors of nail polish chosen are: Kiss Gel Shine Nail Polish in DTGNP06 and L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in a shade of  "Simply"
I chose to do some press on nails in the pink shade and some nails in the tan shade of nail polish. The tan press on nails will be designed with acrylic paint and some nail art brushes and tools.
The acrylic paints are from Michaels by Craft Smart. I also have a liner brush, angle nail art brush and dotting tools that I will be making various nail art designs on each press on nail with.
As the nail art is being done the acrylic paint will dry depending on how thick you put the acrylic paint on. You will know it's dry when it looks like chalk and is dry to the touch.
I let the press on nails dry for about an hour just to make sure there is no smudging or smearing when I apply the topcoat.
I'm big on this Poshe Super Fast Drying Topcoat. I apply two coats to all of my press on nail sets.
After the press on nails have two coats of Poshe topcoat on them I let them dry for a couple hours before I put them in a box. If possible letting them dry for (24) hours would be ideal but if thats is not possible at least a couple hours.
After you have let the press on nails dry they can placed in a box for storage yourself, a friend or shipped to a customer. In a few easy steps you can have custom press on nails to keep, gift or sell. 

Leave some color combinations or nail ideas if you have any to share! Thank you for stopping by make sure to come back!

 I was looking at this wig for the longest and didn't know whether I wanted to order a wig that long or not. I got some Amazon gift card rewards and decided that was my chance. Yes! You guessed it I'm a frugal person, a cheapskate, a penny pincher... whatever you want to call me it's fine just know that I know how to save a buck. So this wavy glue less lace front wig is about 26 inches which is to date one of the longest wigs I own.


I was very excited to receive this wig unit in the mail from Amazon. The wavy wig retails for about $39.00 and is well constructed. In the pictures of course I already cut the lace off at the edges. The cap was nice and snug and it has two straps in the back of the lace front wig. Plus combs to secure the wig at the front and in the back.

I liked the versatility of the natural long lace front wavy wig. I wore it more dry for more of a wavy hair style but if you add a good amount of water the lace front wig becomes wet and wavy which is a nice option if you want to go for another type of style.
This particular wavy lace front wig is pre-plucked which I like because I'm not good at plucking the wigs at the front. There was also a little baby hair to play with in the front. The entire wavy lace front wig is synthetic but is also heat resistant (low heat can be used on the wig)

I'm usually not a huge fan of black wigs but because this one was long and luscious I said "that's what wigs are for right... to wear hair you don't have" So in this case it worked out very well. The wig unit really surprised me when it came to styling into and up do look. It was constructed very well and you can definitely pull off a ponytail in this wavy lace front wig.
I like the just rolled out of bed messy look and as you can see this hairstyle can be achieved with this wig. It's been a while since I orded this natural wavy lacefront wig from Amazon so I dont remember the seller. Here is the YouTube video below I'm sure I mentioned more details about this wig and you can see the wig unit in action. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Stay positive, have a good one and come back and see me sometime lol!



 I'm all about some DIY projects. So when I was thinking about changing my video backdrop/ background in my recording room for YouTube I thought about the popular organic balloon garlands I keep seeing online and on Instagram. I used to work at a party store for years blowing up balloons on a daily so I thought this would be a fun DIY balloon project. I got a balloon pump from Ebay, table cloth from The Dollar Tree and the balloons are both from The Dollar Tree and Ebay.

I had a ball blowing them up with the hand pump! There was no design I just blew up all the colors and bunched them together. There was a pack of (6) Confetti balloons from The Dollar Tree that were great accents in the bunches. The balloons were one big garland and then I messed up and put some strong double sided tape on them and it made the middle pop. Which ended up being cool because I ended up with two clusters. One for each side of me.
I was very impressed with the outcome! The two clusters on both sides of me while I sit in the middle for videos or pictures. The table cloth was black which really made the colors pop out. This can also be done for parties as well. 
Very cool DIY balloon backdrop/background that cost me very little but gave off a great look on camera and for photos. I have a couple more ideas with balloons for future backdrops. If you want to see the full video on Youtube of how I put this together with all my shenanigans included click below:
Thank you so much for reading and stopping by! Hope you got some balloon ideas flowing for your next at-home project. Have a great one!









 This is one of my favorite quick bean salads I make when I need to prep some food to last a couple days. Dairy-free garbanzo bean aka chickpea salad is my favorite because there is REALLY no cook time. Unless you would like to make your garbanzo beans fresh. Mines are out of the can but you can make this with homecooked garbanzo beans and it will be even tastier! Here is everything you need to make this delicious dish!

I'm just one person so I used one can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas) but feel free to add more if you are making this dish for more people. Black olives, Sweet relish, Plant based Mayo, Yellow Mustard, and red onion (its not pictured here but I added some sliced green olives also.
Chop everything up into a bowl of your choice (everything except the garbanzo beans) get ready to add some seasoning and our wet ingredients.
I go a little crazy with the seasonings and I added sunflower kernels. The sunflower kernels give the salad a crunch and a nutty flavor which is a great compliment to the taste in this garbanzo bean (chickpea) salad. Seasoning is optional you can use any type of seasoning that works for you here is what I put in this garbanzo bean salad: garlic powder, chopped chives, fine pink Himalayan sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, ground paprika. Only use the seasonings you like in your dish.
Came out excellent! Added some crackers and topped it with some shredded dairy-free cheddar cheese. This is definitely one of my top quick recipes! Garbanzo bean salad can be a side dish for a dinner a quick snack with some crackers or just lunch by itself. You can find garbanzo beans (chickpeas) in a can for under $1.00 each or you can make them from scratch a bag might cost 1.49 but they are worth it. It's a staple in my pantry to have canned garbanzo beans and bags of dry garbanzo beans. Add them to your grocery list and start feasting!




 I did it again! I was able to scoop four colors of nail polish from The Dollar Tree all Sinful Colors brand! I'm super excited because its very rare to see Sinful Colors nail polish in The Dollar Tree. Sinful colors nail polish is usually in a store like Sally's or a higher priced beauty store. I was also impressed with the shades I picked up. Usualy the colors all look alike or they are dull and unwanted but these colors are POPULAR!.

First color is a deep lush red called "Redrum" It's a sexier type of deep red. Would look great on nails or toes. This is more of a classic color. If your a red lover this is a beautiful shade of red for a set of nails.
Next color is called "Charmed" it's a fine glitter sparkle type of polish. This charmed color can be worn by it'sself but I feel like it would have popped so much more over a cool tone colored nail polish. But is very suttle by itself. Very fine and glittery without the flash. Like a elegant champagne glitter.
The third color named "Interglamactic" it's a violet purple but brighter type of shade. Not quite purple but not pink either so I would say it was more of a pretty violet shade. Great to step out of your comfort zone with. Not to bright but a stand out nail polish color.
Last but not least is "Spirirted" a lilac purple shade that is super cute. I have this shade on my pedicure right now and it looks great! I'm not a purple person but I might start doing a purple manicure and pedicure once in a while. It's a nice break from red or blue.
I'm very pleased to put all of these Sinful Colors nail polishes in to my collection. I would love to see a lot of these shades as press on nails. More manicures and pedicures with these nail polishes before the summer season is over.
You guys already know the drill! Check your local Dollar Tree or just a dollar store and even discount places like big lots and you can possibly run up on deals like these.
So grateful to have found these for a total of $4.00! (Plus tax of course) Thank you for checking out my Sinful colors nail polish swatch blog! As soon as I find more shades I will swatch them. Have a great one!
