Hey there…

 

I have not said anything in a while….hmmmm have I been waiting for some boxes to talk about….I suppose so. Have I been busy? Sort of. Im a learner, I love learning so I utilize today’s technology and social media platforms and video sharing sites to learn and discover all sorts of things for it is a big world out there. Although nothing compares to actually traveling this suffices me for now. I recently learned thing’s about Christianity or rather what many take for granted and dont know. I discovered some great Korean dishes from Maangchi’s channel on Youtube. Several deserts from well known IG members. Found some really awesome and talented unsigned artists and musicians on IG and Youtube…..Awesome lyricists such as Abyssthabyssness and Chev Robinson, Lee England Jr the violinist with AWESOME COVERS! Talented Brazilian singer Henry Wallace (Good luck on EX FACTOR!), Smooth vocals and talented Guitarist/Singer Cedric Johnson (CedricJohnsonmusic on IG), soulful sounding Lauren Cameron, and the Concious MC Dr.Boney to name a few whose music can be found on the Soundcloud and Youtube. Sad to say but mainstream music and artists are not for me. International music/artist like Afro Pop artist Yemi Alade or the Korean Male Pop Group “Big Bang” on the other hand are! Found some great new authors thanks to social media in general and amazon reviews. Whenever, I have downtime I’m learning. Whenever Im bored I’m learning. I truely believe a mind is a terrible thing to waste and nothing is more fun than being able to converse about various subjects or topics. Well, until I receive one of my monthly subscription boxes and fyi I will be trying out the Degustaboxus! (Try code FBMOB9 to get your first box for $9.99 or my code TIESHAG-8C6 for a discount sorry I dont know how much of a discount) I may come here to just encourage such things like setting a goal to learn one new thing everyday! Maybe, I’ll “beat” my face and do a make up review. Maybe I’ll do a book review……maybe an Album review. Ah, I can’t wait for the controversial David Banner Album to drop. Whoever is reading this can feel free to comment. I love to cook and bake so perhaps later on I’ll share some recipes. Hmmmm this has become a open Diary 😂😂 Well until next time. ✌

What more can we do?

IMG_20160606_155641


Hello, Im back again to talk not about a subscription box but my day. Today, I purposely styled me and my LO’s outfit to match as well as our hair. We both rocked our hair out to enjoy the weather and feel comfortable. Since we are black aka African American aka African decendants  our hair defys gravity  (a wonderful perk of our DNA) and our hair stood up and out which is known as an Afro! The first person to compliment us was someone in our own community who happened to be an older black women. The next was a man who almost got in a car accident complimenting us and then my niece’s little classmates at her school. Unfortunately, as I had expected the type of black people who would have something negative to say with their mouths and eyes appeared but I paid them no mind and they quickly shut up. I thought to myself why is it that in 2016 with all the available knowledge do we still have ignorant black people but then I remembered the Chemtrails being sprayed in our sky daily. And gases underground via  the MTA said to be a harmless gas for test run practice in case of a terrorist attack…..I remembered the drugged and unatural foods that occupy 95% of the shelves all over America. I remembered the vaccines that cripple people mentally and then I remembered the entertainment world where most celebs push straight or curly hair they grew or wear from someone else. I remembered that to be you is now frowned upon. That saying good hair only applies to straight hair that shines and not full thick coarse hair that defys gravity and comes natural for people of color. I forgot that too many are still brainwashed and therefore hate themselves and could never do what I did. To just comb my African inherited hair out, moisturize, shake and go takes a certain amount of freedom. Mental freedom, that allowed me to be able to see me as beautiful. To want to represent myself to the world and not project a worldy image of myself yet again today. To hear those snickers and “look at her” comments but dispose of them just as fast as I heard them. Im free to do me in 85 degree weather meanwhile they are extra hot trying to save face with those who could careless wheter they lived or died. I love my wigs and acquring different looks from them but I never avoid my own look or prevent others from seeing what I truly look like. Because I’am not ashamed. Im beautiful with or without fake hair. With or without make up. Iam enough.

I hope everyone transcends to a higher realm of being so that we all can be happy, comfortable, respectful, love ourselves and each other. Its asking for alot but we have come a long way that I believe anything is possible. What more can anyone do but be the change that they want to see. Thanks for reading. Until next rant…..I mean time 😎 Stay true….Clearly my true self feels silly 😏 ⬇

The trend I just so happened to learn of lol!

Hello everyone reading, I recently discovered by accident who Pat Mcgrath was and the limited edition highlighter that she put out a couple of weeks ago. Apparently,  Sephora was one of the main places to get the product. Perhaps, everyone who wears make up knew all the above but I sure didn’t!  So when I stumbled upon these twins on youtube expressing their excitement I was taken aback….Twins first impressions

Naturally I searched for other youtubers of other shades who have used the product and found one who demonstrated a swatch as well…Cynthia B

I saw another who I failed to screenshoot and wont for you can search youtube and find a very huge selection of various different types of people who swatched these products as many purchased the goldtone highlighter and the pink highlighter. The twins pictured above did say each was $72 dollars but Im not sure if that was including tax or not so I rounded it up to $80. You can click the highlighted links above to watch the full youtube video reviews the ladies above uploaded. I think the product in either color is beautiful and in fairness it was three pieces included. A stick with two different applications the pigmented highlighter and a brush. Along with the fact that a well know Black make up artist put this out I suppose it wouldn’t be any cheaper. Would I buy it? NO. I can play around with my pigmented eye shadows to achieve the same look and have. But to each their own. I rather enjoy creating looks with unexpected products. (My ONLY exception would be if I ran out of ALL the stuff I have and actually found my way to a Sephora or their website….then it would be the Goldtone ONLY) I was just surprised that I did not hear much on IG about this as the youtubers proclaimed. Well, thats all folks….my two cents on a trend I didn’t know was occurring. Be on the look out for Goldtone and pink highlighted cheek bones gallore this summer!

Body Image…..

Hello everyone 😙

Sooooooo, body image is so important to EVERYONE! Including myself! I aint even gonna lie. But to me its a problem when folks are only unhappy with their outer apperance because they compare themselves to airbrushed, cosmetic surgery and unhealthy celebrities or even non celebrities. Thats a BIG problem to me. I once weighed 160 and at that weight I wanted to wear crop tops because I wanted to showcase my results of hardwork and pierced my belly. I felt healhty and accomplished that I had lost so much weight as I intended to. Now pushing 230 wheter I look it or not to others I feel good but I know I would feel better being able to wear things only presented or created for smaller sizes. And in all honesty I just want to go shopping anywhere and thats possible for smaller sized individuals. And so due to my love of fashion in a sense and to be my healthiest might I add I try my best to be conscious of how much I consume and what! Thats just me. I know how I can lose weight quickly (working out 4x a week) or slowly (eating less and healthier ). Never do I look at other women and think Im ugly because I’m not their size. I love myself fat or skinny. I look good either size. One is more obviously acceptable but that is not my motivation to lose weight or my concern. I  dont compare myself to them and they are not my role models or ideal image of Beauty. We all look good at different sizes in my opinion and we all look good at different sizes to others. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I shared the pic an instagramer shared because it was very true of what most of us have thought at one point in our life man, woman or child. It cracked me up and made me smile because it is life. Anyway, I hope everyone reading stops feeling bad about their size or comparing themselves to others. The entertainment world is just that ENTERTAINMENT. And women are objectified non stop. And so are men on some level. We all need to be mindful of the younger generation that watches all the entertainment, reads the magazines and music videos that depict one type of woman and do our part to embrace reality. Off my soapbox. Write you later ✌

Hello world!

My name is Tiesha, that’s 3 syllables 😁 by the way (Ti-e-sha) but you can call me Tie! It has been a dream of mine to be able to write about what I love and ….what I don’t love (hate is such a strong word) and so here I’am finally. It only took me about $70 and 6 hours of researching which web host I would sign up with but I made it😭😪😆 Now, what will I be sharing you might be wondering well here goes….EVERYTHING! Because life is far from black and white and BELIEVE ME I thought of starting a blog where I only talked about the Beauty and Geek box Subscription services I enjoy. Or the Avon products I sell but I’m into so much more like cooking/baking and educating the younger generations of blacks on who paved the way for me and them. I’m into social events whether they be good or bad (Shruggs). Kickrocs and yes I misspelled it on purpose, has always been my choice of words towards those with ignorance as their first language and my tag name elsewhere. So that is how the name of my sweet little blog and etc was selected. I hope all of you reading are as open minded and compassionate as I’am so that you will enjoy your visit. But if Not….well 😏
