Bar trip to Hawaii!

After sitting for the bar, law school grads typically go on a “bar trip” to celebrate completing three years of law school and surviving the bar. My Fiancé (then boyfriend) and I initially planned a two week vacation to Europe, but with the start of my new job (which included a move to Philadelphia), we had to rework our plans.

My Fiancé travels for work, so we were able to book our tickets to Europe with points. Thankfully, he was able to cancel the flights and re-book for earlier dates to Hawaii! After researching the “calmest Hawaiian island,” we decided to travel to Maui. Maui is described as the place you to go relax; thats exactly what we needed for two reasons. First, we flew out the day after I took the bar. Second, after the trip, we had about two days to pack up the apartment and move to Philly.

Proposal in Venice, Italy

I’m a pretty private person, so I debated on what I’d include in this post. I decided to keep it simple, and include a brief story and my favorite pictures from our proposal.

My Fiancé Sam and I decided to go to Italy for our annual spring trip. We spent five days traveling between Rome, Florence and Venice. Five days was not enough time, so we definitely plan to go back.

Everyone swore up and down that Sam would propose in Italy. I was convinced he would after we got back to Philly. I was wrong!

Allow me to reintroduce myself…

Hello, I’m Tisha.

To my faithful followers from 2015: I’m still alive and well. To my new followers: girlllllll you’re in for a treat—I have a lot to blog about. Now lets get to it, shall we?

Since my last post: I’ve graduated law school, moved out of Columbus, Ohio, started my first full-time legal job, passed the bar exam, turned 25, and got engaged. A lot right? I cannot discuss each of these moments in one post, so I will blog about them over the next few months. I’ll also be blogging about my favorite things (skincare, makeup, fashion, natural hair), mental health, physical fitness, and my travel adventures (I might include a few posts about being a black woman in corporate America).

What would you all like to read about?  Leave a comment down below; I’d love to know.

Thanks, Influenster!

Hey all! This post is going to be a little different because its kind of sponsored. I never thought I’d actually be saying that. lol For those that don’t know, there is a company called Influenster that sends complementary products for testing purposes, with a decently sized social media following. That includes instagram, facebook, twitter, blog, youtube, etc. First your sign up, link your social media accounts, and based on your interests and your social media presence, Influenster will send you emails asking a few questions to determine if you’re a good fit for a certain campaign. So far I’ve received two influenster boxes- a ralph lauren fragrance box and the most recent one, an Ole Henriksen box.

Tisha, where have you been?

I’ve been MIA and I am mad at myself for that. This year I set a blogging goal and I was so close to meeting it sooner than expected. My blog was getting more attention than I ever thought it would without any outside promotion of my own! I had so many blog ideas; I started them, saved them, and never posted them. Why? Well, between law school, working this summer and plain ‘ole laziness, I didn’t have time or energy to blog. So to those of you that are still loyal (LOL), here’s a life/month by month update.

🍾 Champagne Glow! 🍾

Hey all!! I know its been a minute, but lets look past that lol. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you know all about the🍾 Champagne Glow Palette by Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill! 🍾 Of course, I had to have it. I didn’t get Champagne Pop when it originally came out, so this time around it was a no-brainer. The palette includes two highlighters: champagne pop and prosecco pop, and three blushes: amaretto, pampelmousse and rose spritz. It is sold out on Sephora.com, but there might be some in stock in a Sephora near you (I sound like a sales person haha)! It is limited edition, so once its gone, its not coming back. Here are a few swatches of the palette and some pictures with me wearing Champagne pop!

I will say, I didn’t notice much of a difference between champagne pop and prosecco pop. Maybe when I actually put it on, the true colors will come through. Enjoy!! 😊😊

2 years natural- what I’ve learned

Hello all! Long time no post. Its been a couple weeks since I’ve posted, not because I don’t have anything to write about, but because its finals season for me. My first exam is in 20 days so I’ve been focusing on STUDYING! I’ve given up all social media except for this blog and Instagram…but I might be gone from the blog too 🙊

Spring Makeup Series:Metallic+Purple

Its been pretty warm the past week in Columbus so I felt inspired to try a different eyeshadow look! I really wanted to buy the MannyMUA palette with Makeup Geek, but it sold out and I gave up makeup shopping for Lent so it was a no-go lol. I decided to use some colors I already have that look similar to the shades in the palette.

Spring is here!!!!! I’m so excited to bring out all my warm shades because Spring makeup is my favorite!! I love my pinks, purples and nudes of course. I hope you guys like this. Here we go.

Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation

Two posts in one week?! Yes! I’ve only posted once this month and that’s sad because I’ve had these posts saved for weeks! This is my first review and I am pretty excited about it. As you can tell by the title, I’ll be talking about Lancome Teint Idole 24 hour foundation. This was my second high end foundation purchase. I purchased the Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo foundation but the color wasn’t quiet right. So I used Sephora’s Color IQ matching system and I was matched to Lancôme.
