When I tell you this weekend was completely BONKERS, it was completely BONKERS! The hubs and I ran the Color Vibe 5K at 8AM on Saturday. I unfortunately, only have a handful of pics from the whole ordeal so check my IG stories for the latest on that. Otherwise, click here for all the colorful pics from when I ran this same run back in 2016.

Any who, immediately following the run, I jetted across town to the other side to join my pageant sisters for our first official dance practice. As if running a little over 3 miles wasn’t enough, I had to tack on learning a dance routine and walk in sky-high heels, LOL…Oh but wait, there’s more, because I’m crazy and can’t possibly imagine a weekend that’s not jammed packed with way too many activities, LOL, Nelle and I met at my house and floored it to downtown for the Shello Nail Polish launch party. After witnessing a wrestling match and taking too long trying to find parking, this ladies and gentlemen, leads me to my next activity, which was meeting the creator behind this amazing vegan nail polish brand, Ralphlyne Vieux-Harrington. For deets on the brand, check my Shello Polish post from a few weeks back.

Big shout out to Ralphlyne for planning this amazing launch party. The crab cakes were THE BEST. Most importantly, I was able to chat with this beautiful soul and hear more about her mission and vision for the company and I’m excited for what’s to come. Speaking of what’s to come, if you’re checking IG, you already know we had a Shello Polish giveaway winner. Keep scrolling for the deets on that…


At random drawing, by the hubs, I’d liked to extend a big congratulations to Valerie for winning our Shello Polish giveaway. I hope you enjoy your polishes and don’t forget to #colorwithconfidence. Stay tuned for another giveaway, I have some amazing goodies for all my readers and I can’t wait to get this party started. By the way, I almost forgot to mention the cutie wearing the gray jumpsuit and adorable glasses is Angelica from The Strong Suit blog. It was so great meeting her and getting a chance to chit chat about our crazy weekend antics. When you get sometime, go check out her blog, there are some pretty great reads up there that I’m sure you’ll love.

I hope everyone has an AMAZING week! And to my NC peeps and everyone on the east coast, I pray everyone’s safety for the hurricane that is predicted to hit our area this Thursday. Be safe and don’t forget to stock up on water and non-perishable items.

Till next time.

Neutrogena and I are back at it again but this time I’ve partnered with them to bring you the new Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen. #gotitfree. There’s no doubt in my mind I’ll be kicking it in the sun all summer. Me and my good friend Tay need extra protection to keep our skin glowing and youthful because this pretty lady is getting married next year so it’s even more important to make sure her skin is picture perfect for the big day. Tay is wearing the SPF 50 for extra extra protection and I lathered on the SPF 30 to my arms legs and face.

In case you’re wondering, this works well under make-up, goes on smooth and doesn’t leave that annoying white film that’s so hard to rub in. It’s also ultra moisturizing but doesn’t give you that clogged pore feeling. Me and Tay tried out the new product for our friend date at the park and just lounged around on the grass soaking up the rays. Your mission for the rest of the summer is to 1. stay protected with the Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen and 2. make #EverydayaSUNday.
