HIV/Aids awareness is something that I hold near and dear to my heart. I lost an aunt to the disease and have an uncle who is currently thriving and living a full life with it, but I wasn’t always as knowledgeable and sensitive to the affects of HIV/AIDS until it impacted my family. That’s why I’m absolutely continue reading →

I have a confession B&B friends–I’m not a huge fan of beauty boxes. I’m usually pretty set in my ways and use pretty much the same products to maintain my hair, skin and nails. I used to think that subscription services were awesome option, but they just weren’t for me.
