#OwnYourCulture: Makeup with Winnie

Lately, I have found myself more and more intrigued by beauty and different makeup items. I am a fashion girl to the core and most times, I like my face as simple as possible- a dab of foundation, lipstick and if I remember- mascara. I have nothing against makeup- I just really prefer to have outstanding outfits and clear, glowing skin. I always hope to do that naturally but given my kind of work schedule, I suffer from dryness sometimes or just tired skin from several sleepless nights or long days in the sun! I love that through we get to meet so  many fabulous experts. One such expert is Winnie of We got the deets on perfecting your makeup skills. Check out for more!

#OwnYourCulture: Congolese Edition with Rshan Phonsi

With the #OwnYourCulture movement It's my hope and dream to travel across Africa learning about the diverse cultures. I have been having a superb time learning from around East Africa, the beauty of it all is completely breathtaking. I can only imagine how much more fabulous lays beyond here. I was super excited to work with Rshan a Congolese style blogger. It was exciting to learn about her home and culture.  Being passionate about her country and youth empowerment, two ideals I hold dear, It was amazing to get together to create and learn.
