JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America

As a kid, I used to dream about visiting the Mall of America. Growing up around my mom who loved to shop, I pretty much had no choice but to carry some of the same traits as her, one of them being…spending as much time in the mall as I could! About a month ago, my family got the opportunity to visit JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America. I was so excited to be staying at a hotel that was not only near the biggest mall in the country of the United States, but inside it!

how to style Mary Jane shoes, the beauty beau

Happy Monday and Happy MLK Day! I’m hoping that everyone who is enjoying a Monday off fully understands the reason behind why the off day even exists. I am a huge “backer up” of equality and believe in everyone having the same opportunities, no matter what. I am so grateful people like him existed and was bold enough to speak up about what’s right and wrong. There really aren’t enough people out there like that today.

My skin changes almost more than I change my underwear as I continue to age. From season to season, I end up using different products due to the ones from previous seasons simply not working anymore.

This helps determine the products you need for your skin, which all happen to be available at Sam’s Club!

Nexxus Therappe Shampoo review, the beauty beau

One of the main keys in managing natural hair is constantly testing out new products. With my hair texture, it’s so easy for my hair to dry out and lose its moisture. Also, getting my hair styled professionally can get super expensive with it being thicker and tougher to manage. When I first found out Costco had a bundle pack of Nexxus shampoo and conditioner of luxury, salon quality, I knew there couldn’t be a better time to give this line a try!

how to wear a boyfriend denim jacket

The first time I wore this look was to the Imagine Dragons concert I had the pleasure of attending a few months ago. It’s grown to be one of my favorite looks worn, one of the reasons being that 2 of the band members gave me compliments upon meeting them. They may find a compliment to give everyone who gets the opportunity to meet them, but whatever. Let me live in my bubble, okay?!

how to wear sock boots, the beauty beau

Typically when I shop, I never worry about what I have at home to go with it. I’ve learned through years and years of experience that if I don’t already own something to wear it with, I’ll just find something later. That thought holds true with this royal blue faux wrap skirt. It was a pop of color that I needed in my closet!
