  1. Lately I've been getting lots of compliments on my glow-up so I thought I would share what I do and some of my favorite products! No bougie brands here, everything I use can be found at your average American drugstore. Hair washing - Pantene Pro-V Classic Clean 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner styling - AXE Messy Look Flexible Hair Paste rejuvenating - Aura Cacia Organic Argan Oil with Peppermint Oil on-the-go - Batiste Dry Shampoo Original Scent Face cleanser - Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser exfoliant - St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask toner - Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner spot treatment - Burt's Bees Herbal Complexion Stick serum - Neutrogena Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster moisturizer - Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer eye cream - same moisturizer with Vaseline self-tanner - Jergens Natural Glow Firming Daily Moisturizer sunscreen - Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Broad Spectrum SPF 55 lip balm - Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint night cream - Ponds Dry Skin Cream Teeth toothpaste - Colgate Max Fresh with Whitening Breath Strips floss - Oral-B Complete Satin Floss Mint whitener - True Company Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder gum - Trident White Gum assorted flavors Body wash - Dove Men+Care Elements Minerals+Sage Body and Face Wash deodorant - Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Antiperspirant Deodorant shaving cream - Edge Extra Moisturizing Shave Gel lotion - Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion fragrance - still looking for one tbh! General hydration - 8 glasses of water a day nutrition - Target Men's Multivitamin Gummy other skin precautions - stay out of the sun, no fried foods, light on dairy posture - sit up straight, stand when you can fashion - cute, cheap, and comfortable All of these products and tips have made such a difference lately! Confidence and beauty are far more of an attitude than a look, but sticking to these things has definitely helped me feel my best.
  2. Lock this droopy-lidded worthless piglet up for life and incinerate the key.
  3. FOTP is the last place that should be giving someone shit for pitting women against each other.
  4. I found the Babe.net article last week while looking up something completely different. They're not a huge source by any means, but it's still cool to have been mentioned by name for my sleuthing and randomly come across it. I wonder which member here is lurking for them.

      I saw this yesterday! They need to do a Young Avengers movie with Kamala, Peter Parker, Shuri, Kate Bishop, Johnny Storm, Wiccan, and Hulkling.

      I don't really know anything about Wiccan or Kate Bishop (even though I have a toy of the latter), and very little about Hulkling. I liked Shuri a lot in the actual Black Panther movie, would be cool to see her in a bigger role. 


      Who do you think should play Kamala? I'm sure there's a lot of great young Pakistani-American actresses out there, but I have to confess that I'm ignorant to them.

    3. Hermione

      I don't really know any either, which says a lot about the current state of Hollywood. They should find an actress who is unknown, age-appropriate, and has that spunky and feisty Disney heroine quality. Maybe she can eventually be the Peter Parker to Carol Danvers' Tony Stark.

  5. Hermione here

    Last night, I confessed my true feelings to the guy I've secretly liked for almost a year (and have talked about a lot on here). It went pretty well! 👀

      Not exactly, but I'm still happy about how it turned out. We were going our separate ways and would probably never see each other again, so I decided to just get some closure and tell him how I really felt so I'd have no regrets looking back. But we're doing our own things and are happy for each other. lotus1

      Things seems to be going your way lately.

      You should have done it earlier! clap1 Maybe you wouldn't go separate ways if you told him how you feel instead of waiting one year clap1 Bless you xx

  6. I don't come on here much anymore, but I used to regularly share my personal and professional aspirations with you all on my blog and around the forum. It seems like every other day I used to vent about something in the Let It Out thread, and now I have no reason to because life has gotten so good since then. I know it's cliche, but things really do almost always get better if you work hard and give it time. The past few days in particular have been completely surreal, and I feel so inspired. I can't stop singing, dancing, writing, smiling, laughing, and crying (happy tears, obviously). I love my life, I'm so happy, and everything is perfect for the first time ever. If you're wondering why I'm in such a triumphant mood, this happened over the weekend: I've experienced such an outpouring of love and appreciation from my family, classmates, coworkers, professors, church, and friends online and off over this achievement. I was also the inaugural recipient of a new award created by my school, and I'm so honored to be recognized in this way. My cap decoration is a message to everyone who said I couldn't do this, including some who are very close to me (all of whom have since apologized), and it hurt at the time but ultimately motivated me to study, hustle, and grind even harder to prove them wrong. Even though the last few days have been amazing, I refuse to let this be my peak. I may have one degree down, but I still have three to go and a whole career ahead of me. I'm already planning my next move, and will be starting teaching classes this summer and transferring to the most prestigious teaching university in the area this fall. The world of academia is my home, and I never want to leave it. I hope to change lives, leave a legacy, and inspire the next generation, and doing it in the classroom through literature and language is as good a way as any. I also plan to keep writing stories and songs, getting involved in my community, and staying in touch with the wonderful friends I've made at school as well as continuing to make new ones. Thank you to everyone who has embarked on this journey with me. I'm glad I could be part of yours. ♥
  7. Girl, same! It was part of my awakening. But it's just ridiculous fun, I love that she doesn't take herself too seriously. It was also her first video with Tessa.
  8. The areola line reminded me of Yoga... That song is so much fun at sleepovers, cookouts, game nights, and pool parties. These all go off too! The last one makes me miss her Cindi Mayweather/Metropolis stuff, as much as I love the fact that she's singing as her true self now.
  9. What are everyone's favorite lyrics? My contenders: "Remember when they told you I was too black for ya, now my black is popping like a bra strap on ya" "I'm tired of hoteps trying to tell me how to feel...for real" "But even back then with the tears in my eyes I always knew I was the shit" all of Django Jane
  10. Help, I'm obsessed with I Got The Juice. Also, I gave this a glowing review in the local paper! Promoting the queen while getting paid.

    Celeb News

    This was amazing news to wake up to. My queen is officially out! I know she's been wanting to make a statement for a while, but was coy about it because of religious family. But she's alluded to it in her music for a long time, and it was getting more and more blatant so I had a feeling this was coming up. Also, whether people knew or not doesn't matter. This is Janelle's life, not a Gillian Flynn book, and it doesn't have to be shocking. This is about her taking a weight off her shoulder, and whether it's stating the obvious is completely inconsequential.
