The last year under quarantine has been extremely difficult, and people, including me, have tried many things and many ways to bring a little light into their lives during these hard times.

Personally, I've made a few purchases that have made lockdown life a little nicer and easier like...

This beautiful handmade headwrap from the Black woman-owned company Fanm Djanm that brightens up the loungewear I now live in.

This headwrap comes in so many different patterns, so it's easy to find something that fits your personal style. Bonus: The headwraps are lightweight and easy to clean.

A buildable foundation because it gives me a glowy look for virtual meetings with minimal effort.

A bottle of NYX Born to Glow Foundation

In the Before Times™️, I wore makeup basically every single day. Since I started working from home, I’ve abandoned my routine for the most part. When I do feel like putting on makeup, I grab this foundation.

It makes my skin look healthier, and well, radiant, so I never feel the need to reach for blush. The foundation is also buildable and not too pricey, so that makes it a win in my book!

A bottle of oil-infused serum that's been keeping my face feeling soft and plump with the help of rosewater.

I'm constantly battling my dry skin, so I’m always excited to try a new product that promises to deliver hydration.

I purchased my first bottle of the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum back in August. I. WAS. NOT. DISAPPOINTED. My skin feels so supple after I apply the serum that I have to remind myself to stop touching my face. The rose scent is lovely as well!
