Addicted: Our Weekly Fashion, Beauty and Culture Obsessions

Happy Saturday! It's the weekend and I've got a lot of shopping to do. So, let's get to it. Here's the top 3 things I'm addicted to this week:


1. Carol's Daughter Appreciation Campaign.

Everyone want's to feel appreciated and Carol's Daughter is making sure of that with their new campaign. They've been identifying individuals, some well-known and others not so much, and sending little notes of recognition. It's so nice that a major company has taken time out to acknowledge those in the community who are doing good things and making their way to the top. Here's a few examples below and you can find more by searching the hastag #URAppreciated:

Who would you send a note of appreciation to?

2. Big Hair Bettyy

Have you heard about the Big Hair Bettyy movement? If you're like me, (and every other girl), you can easily get caught up on endless YouTube hair toutorial videos. I came across one of Jnatay's videos on Instagram and had to check out her YouTube channel to see how she achieved her look. I'm in awe of her hair! So full, so versatile, and so BIG!. Check her out on YouTube: Big Hair Bettyy and let me know if you try out any of her styles. 


3. Benefit Brow Zing

I have another ULTA obsession. Here I am getting ready to go to dinner, and to my surprise I ran out of my Dior Diorshow Brow Styler. I bought it about 4 months ago after the Macy's cosmetics girl convinced me that I had to have this eye brow pencil. I actually ended up liking the look it gave; Not too fake or airbrushed. I only used it maybe once a week (remember I'm not a make-up fein). So, I was surprised when I went to twist and there was no more! WTH. I finally made it to ULTA to purchase a replacement, only to find out they don't carry it. BUT...I did find something better. Benefit Brow Zing is the bomb! I was skeptical about a powder because in the past it never really worked for me. After, a demo from one of the ULTA girls, I was hooked. It gives a really natural look but still has definition. Oh, and did I mention it's supposed to last for a couple of years! 


P.S.: This comes in Light, Medium and Dark to ensure a perfect match.


Now, get out there and enjoy the weekend!
