TRENDY TUESDAYS : Quarantine Nails

Image
Hey babes and happy Tuesday!  So with all the craziness going on in the world, as a black woman my heart has been feeling extra heavy lately and I'm sure yours has too. That being said, sometimes you just need a minute to detox, regroup and treat yourself to a little "me time". With everything going on including us being on lockdown for the past few months, these times have allowed us girls to get creative when it comes to our beauty regimens.  Although businesses are slowly starting to reopen now, some of us aren't quite ready to take that chance yet. One of the biggest beauty trends I have been seeing all across the internet, has been the popular demand for press on nails.  That's right girls... PRESS ON NAILS! You remember? When you were too young to have long nails so you went to the nearest beauty supply store to buy you some press ons, tryna be grown(okay maybe that was my childhood) lol, but anyway these aren't your average press ons!

National Harbor Wine and Food Festival

Image
Soo this past Saturday was the wine and food festival at the National Harbor which in our opinion should have been called the wine and liquor festival!! Don't get me wrong, it was greatly enjoyed but I was really looking forward to tasting the food as well and it was nowhere to be seen.    Besides that, it was a beautiful sunny day, and it was a friend's bday weekend and everyone was getting their drink on! We had shots of Jack Daniels, Bacardi, and Pinnacle vodka and etc.! At that point we lost count! It was the best and of course tons of wine tastings which didn't make it any better! And of course, we bought a few bottles to take back home!   So as you can imagine we were feeling quite nice, maybe too nice lol!  To the point we basically canceled all plans to go out that night to just order the fight and try to sober up (well sorta). Lol! So, there you have it! I can honestly say that was the best wine festival and I would advise anyone next year to come o
