I’ve been a bit busy with current events in my life at the moment, but I wanted to stop by on my blog and show some love to everyone who tuned in for my Snapchat Takeover with @BeautyWOC. I had such an amazing time getting all glammed up in front of the camera, meeting new people, and just being myself. During my takeover I had one-hundred something people who tuned in for my snaps. Seriously means so much you guys!❣️❣️❣️❣️
After the takeover and answering everyone’s questions I decided that it would be fun to get out in the world and snap some photos at my favorite location Lawson Gardens here in Pullman, WA. The photos came out stunning thanks to Kenzie who photographed me & snapchated for me while I was getting ready! Here are the photos we captured + a little cat walk. 😉

OnMarch 20th, Marie Sky launched their new collection of liquid to matte lipsticks and lucky for me I got to help pick out a color! I collaborated with my lovely friend Melissa and her brand Marie Sky to create the most dark mauve shade to add to her newest collection of liquid to matte lipsticks for the spring! Also, with any purchases you make on Marie Sky 10% of the proceeds goes to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.💖
I’m so stoked that I got to come up with my very own shade called XoXo -A. Can’t wait to see all gorgeous skin tones female/male rock this new collection.
XoXo -A, my very own shade that I personally picked out is everything & more. It’s a dark mauve that looks bomb in person. When I was thinking about what color I wanted to do I knew I wanted to stay true to my esthetic. I’m more attracting to dark mauves/dark colors so I wanted to make XoXo -A a mixture of both. After messing around with color palletes & color wheels,XoXo -A was created.
Coming up with a name for this mauve plum shade wasn’t too hard for me because I knew while coming up with this shade I wanted to make this lipstick my “signature” lippie. XoXo -A sounded perfect and naming it basically after me just seemed so right and personal, true. Now I’m sharing it with you all! Head over to marieskyworld.com
+ I have a discount code if any of you loves would like to use if you’re interested. It’s oxfordbasil
Melissa sent me some lipsticks from the new collection and they are just too gorgeous that I had to do swatches for you beauties!

STAY TUNED FOR MY NEXT BLOG POST. MAKEUP LOOK USING THE NEW MARIE SKY METALLIC LIQUID LIPSTICK (STAR)
Black. Gay. Slay. The three things I know best! Yesterday on Twitter the #BlackGaySlay was trending! I am in awe. I loved seeing my news feed filled with beautiful, black, gay individuals that are slaying!
Since #BlackGaySlay was trending (and currently still is trending) I decided to post 4 pictures that I thought I slayed in. Minutes after I tweeted my 4 pics I received a DM (Direct Message) from a blogger who goes by the name A. Linx.
Anywho, A. Linx said she found me through the #BlackGaySlay and wanted to know if I would like to be featured in her newest blog post on the trending #BlackGaySlay. Of course I said yes! I had to be apart of this amazing trending hashtag. Not only that, but in her blog post A. Linx definitely has the LGBTQ community’s back when it came to negative troll comments. Makes me sick that people actually will take time out of their day to comment hurtful things to someone/on someone’s post. I loved seeing someone like A. Linx that I completely don’t know take action through her blog and defending the LGBTQ. Thank you. Everyone please go check out A. Linx.blog she’s such an amazing blogger. Xo.
