Hi Jinnalovers! I know it’s been a minute but I’ve been WFH, helping my daughter with remote learning AND trying to stay sane in quarantine. One of my favorite seasons, Fall seems to be slipping away too early and Winter is fast approaching. Why does Winter come so fast? Why can’t we enjoy the pumpkin spices and muffins a little longer, please? Haha. I am not a fan of Winter but all of my favorite holidays are in this season including my birthday (which is this weekend! Technically, it’s still fall but it always feels like winter). Even though I hate the cold season, I do enjoy having the opportunity to switch out my favorite products when the seasons change. Here is a list of my favorite products that will get be through the winter and hopefully I can add more to this list as more products drop for the holidays.

  1. I absolutely love Glossier You fragrance and the fact that it blends in with your natural body odor to give you a unique scent. I remember being at work and getting tons of compliments and people asking what I was wearing throughout the day. Who doesn’t love to smell good?

2. I started taking HUM vitamins over the summer because the pandemic had me feeling sluggish and tired. I felt like I needed to add vitamins to my routine to feel better and I did a lot of research before deciding on the HUM brand. I visited the website and took a personal quiz to see which vitamins I should take and my nutritionist (on the site) suggested that I take the following: OMG! Omega the Great™, Here Comes the Sun™, Daily Cleanse™, Private Party™, and Wingman™. I feel so much better everyday after taking my vitamins in the morning while sipping my coffee and reading emails.

3. Being in quarantine and feeling stressed has not been easy on my hair. Not being able to go to the hair salon and get my deep conditioner has caused my hair to break off and fall out so I read a few beauty articles on the best shampoos for damaged hair and black owned and I saw every one giving tons of props to Briogeo Haircare so I visited the website and took a quiz to see what products would work best on my hair. After taking the quiz, I brought and now use the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Super Moisture Shampoo fir Damaged Hair, Briogeo Don’t Despair! Repair Strength + Moisture Leave-in Spray Hair Mask and Briogeo, Don’t Despair, Repair! Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil. I love it! It makes my hair feel so soft and smooth. Waiting to see hair growth!

4. Do I need to say anything about Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin? This is my absolute favorite celebrity beauty brand and I am loving the cleanser the most – it smells amazing and my skin feels so soft after each use.

What products are getting you the winter season?


I love when fall comes around because everything is Pumpkin or Apple flavored and I get to try new beauty collections!

This fall I am excited to try out some new lipsticks – If you did not know this about me, I tend to wear lipstick or a tinted lip balm to spice up my look during the week and a red lip when I want to feel sexy and confident. Plus lipstick is a beauty product I cannot live without. So, below I came up with a list of lipsticks I am excited to try with my fall beauty looks:

The New M.A.C. Matte Lipsticks

I am loving all of Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip shades this time around. You cannot go wrong with any of these lipsticks. I will do a follow-up post after I try these lipsticks out so stay tuned.


Rihanna not only surprised us with her all-new Killawatt Foil Palette earlier this week, plus a few new Stunna Lip shades but, Sis has blessed us again with the today’s release of the Fenty Beauty Holiday 2018 Collection!!
