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 😏 ⬇

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!

I’am patiently awaiting my May…….Lootanime…..box by…..Lootcrate!!!!
They mentioned Dragon Ball Z along with some other names Im not very familiar with that will be in this Unity themed box and Im so hyped. That show is nostalgic for me. Just like the orignal Sailor Moon!
OKAY, Im gonna shut up now. This was just a spontaneous and random expression of my excitement. Im done……..really. That’s all I wanted to say 😂😛 Talk to whomever is reading this later!
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 😏
