Happy First Day of Spring!

What better way to say Spring is here by wearing a fun and colorful print.
This lemon print dress by the brand Ineffable is so adorable. I like that it has two deep side pockets and the material is very breathable and comfy with the black top being 95% cotton and 5% spandex and the soft flowy skirt made out of 100% polyester. 
It can be worn with a sweater, jacket or blazer or can be worn alone.
You can find it on Amazon for $15.99 ranging in sizes Small to 2 X- Large. I'm wearing a size Small.
This dress will be perfect for Easter as well.

Paul, Apostle of Christ Soon In Theaters Nation Wide

Leave a Comment

Christian films have come a long way and I'm so happy that they are being played more often in mainstream theaters so everyone can see them and receive their inspirational and encouraging messages.
I can't wait to see the movie Paul, Apostle of Christ. It opens in theaters nationwide a week before Easter Friday, March 23, 2018.

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST is the story of two men. Luke (Jim Caviezel), as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul (James Faulkner), who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke and Paul resolve to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not inch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible.
Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much—floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure—yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten ... and if he has the strength to nish well.
Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ as an example to an unbelieving world. 

Here's the teaser trailer:

  The MPAA has rated the film PG-13 for some violent content and disturbing images
   Running time is 1:47 min

Check your nearest theater for tickets:

I Ended Up In The ER

Leave a Comment
Hi my beautiful readers,
Sorry for being MIA but I was dealing with an unexpected health issue. Can you believe it? I had a kidney stone?
It all happened on Sunday at 1:20 am. During the day, I was feeling good and even got to wear my new heels. I visited our friend's church and listened to the message by my loving sister in law who is also a pastor and was visiting from Boston. The word was great and when church finished, I went to my in laws for dinner and even got my hair cut from a lovely friend. Then after, I went home to change and got ready for a meeting with our church Youth Leaders, we all had a great dinner and a great time.

I showered when I got home, ate some mixed nuts, brushed my teeth and went to bed then it all happened. A pain I have never experienced before all at once and wouldn't want to wish on anyone. To me it felt like labor pain mixed with gastritis pain mixed with a horrendous Charley Horse. I tried getting up but ended up rolling on the floor and screaming. My hubby woke up and thought it was a muscle spasm so he tried massages and lifting my body up with a belt but it was not helping or working. So then he took me to a hot shower but before I got in I threw up twice in the sink.
I got into the shower but the pain on my right side on my waist wanted to travel to the front so he insisted I go to the ER. I did go and the staff were friendly, attentive and comforting. My diagnosis was a kidney stone that I had passed while I was at home.
Thankfully after prayer and meds, I am back to normal and I don't want to ever go through that again.
There was no warning this was going to occur but It did so and very suddenly, I might add. So if you get a pain you can't resist, please get it checked out asap.

Here's how I looked before all the pain and drama
by the way if you like the shoes, they are 50% off now and available here: Pom Pom Shoes
                                          Then after ugh:( this was the picture I texted my mom.
                               I thank God it was only one stone and I didn't need surgery.
                               God healed me for he is Jehovah Rapha the Great Physician.

God bless you all and I hope that if you are in need of healing today wether it be spiritual or physical, that you look to God and pray to him for your Healing...

Neocell Ceramides 

Leave a Comment

Press SampleProduct given for testing and review purposes.

When I was asked to test out this product I was very skeptical especially because it involved taking it in pill form. To be honest, I never heard of ceramides before so I decided to give it a try and to my surprise the results after using it we’re phenomenal.
I started on Jan 1, 2017 and stopped using it on February 1.

I was able to see a dramatic difference after 17 days of using the product and more so after I finished the bottle.
My skin was hydrated and the lines disappeared! I couldn’t believe it but these pills from Neocell actually work.
They are available at Walgreens, CVs, Sams Club, Bed Bath and Beyond and Face Values stores.
These before and afters are the real deal! My real deal🙌💕

DIY: Pink Braid With The Hair 2 Wear Collection

Leave a Comment
Hello to my lovely readers,
Here’s a very simple and easy quick diy I did over the weekend. I took a gray faux braided headband and dyed it with Arctic Fox Virgin Pink using a small tooth brush. I left it on for about 15-20 min and the results turned out well. I wish it would have been a brighter pink but nonetheless it still blended in nicely with my hair ☺️ 

You can get this thick braided headband on HSN for $10 bucks and it comes in the usual normal colors but I wanted one in pink so I had to dye it. This headband is very beautiful, and it stays in place on your head as long as you don’t hug a lot and it is part of the Christie Brinkley hair accessory line. I just ordered the dark brown braid as well, that one I will leave as is.
Here’s the linky to The Cristie Brinkley Thick Braid Headband and my photos..


 It transformed into a multi-dimensional braid.
I really liked how it looked and so did the hubby. 💋

Bad Habit Beauty After Shock!

Leave a Comment
Happy weekend friends,
I'm so excited to share that Bad Habit Beauty has done it again! Remember, the previous posts I did on the Aphrodite and Athena palette? Well, this company is popping up with so many palette dupes it's crazy.
I just ordered this new one called After Shock for 10 bucks on the Shop Hush app with free shipping. If you buy it on the Shop Hush website then shipping is not included for free. So download that app!

Back to this vivid colorful palette, It is supposedly a dupe for the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions palette that retails for 27 bucks. And it is filled with 6 matte shadows and 3 shimmer shadows. I do not own Huda's so I can't compare but I can tell you the After Shock palette is very buttery and pigmented. I'm sure the real deal is bomb but I'm really impressed with the Bad Habit Beauty one.
The packaging is beautiful, it has a large mirror inside and the palette closes magnetically, nothing flimsy here. They just released the After Hours Collection which includes this one and 3 others which look beautiful as well.  She's a Bad Habit Beauty For sure! I experienced little fallout and minimal kickback.

These are just finger swatches without primer.
                                 This is the look I created with it and was very pleased😊

On the lids I used: Drop and BPM
For the transition shade I used a Smashbox taupe color
on crease I used Chaser
on lower lash line I used both BPM and Sensation
for highlight I used Wet n Wild Brulé
Inner Corner: Electronica

The Joico Color Intensity Eraser Wonder on Purple Hair

Leave a Comment
Welcome back my lovely readers!
Well, this weekend was truly a challenging one in regards to my hair color. In my last post, you saw the vibrant purple that I absolutely did not like. I tried to like it on me but it wasn’t working.
So, I decided to look up youtube videos and use my last weapon because fading it and letting it fade on it's own was taking too long. 
Last year, I bought a packet of the Joico Color Intensity Eraser and I never used it because I 
 was scared too, now I know why. LOL

Surprisingly, it's not bleach, meant for semi -permanent hair color and it's suppose to lift off the color in minutes. The chemists at Joico did not disappoint and the product worked amazingly, the only draw back is you could end up with blondish green hair like moi.

I did everything the packet instructed to do by using 3 oz of 20 developer mixed in with the 1 packet.
As soon as I placed it on my hair, the color lifted in seconds but I still needed to do my other parts and the blonde was already changing color. So if you plan on using it work fast and rinse it off. I didn’t even wait the recommended time of 30 minutes or else my hair would have turned seaweed green. oh no!

                      Hubby stepped in to help!

My results were a blondish green and I thought ready to get another pixie, but I decided to research on youtube again and I found videos on how pink cancels out green and you know me I love pink. So the next morning, I did two strand tests for about a couple minutes and the color absorbed fast. I tried a baby pink color and a straight on pink using Arctic Fox Virgin pink.

I loved the color of the diluted pink but I was afraid after it would fade, the green were to return so I went on ahead and used the full on pink. I left it on for about 15 -20 minutes. The color was already coming in super fast so I froze in the shower to rinse it off, then I added the Deva Curl One Condition Decadence for moisture. 

Love it!

So thankful and relieved I did not need bleach to take out the green, did my research and only used pink dye. In my case, it worked for me because I wanted my hair pink again but to others it might be a different story so research, research, research. I’m so happy with my end results and that my hair did not get fried in the process. 

Have a great day friends! God bless you and stay tuned for more posts on The Color Wheel Gallery💕

Oh, here's a little vid so you can see it in action lol

Arctic Fox Purple Rain

Leave a Comment
Happy Friday everyone! So glad you can join me on another post.
Well, in the previous post I mentioned, I had changed my hair color again. I was going for the purple trend and I got it alright. When, I took my Arctic Fox hair dye, I was pondering whether to dye it a lavender shade or a full blown purple. I wanted to dye it a single color because having it two shades was more maintenance than I thought. Any who, I went for the plunge. I used Arctic Fox Purple Rain and it was intense and messy. My hubby helped by coloring the back part of the hair and everything was once again uniformed. After I let it sit under a plastic cap for 1 hour and 1/2 , he also washed it for me in cold water. I love my man💕 
                     This was the dye I used and the results it gave me over my pink hair.



I was in total shock and all of my precious pink was gone! After seeing the results, I was a bit disappointed I didn't leave some pink in. Well, right after I saw all the vibrant purple, I decided to try to fade it by washing it under hot water and using a shampoo with zinc in it. I washed it 3 times in a row and 2 times with the shampoo.
The next day these were my results and a fade became evident but not as much as I hoped for.

I then decided to not use any more of that drying shampoo and keep washing under hot water and use my moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. 
Well, this is one lesson learned. I will never do purple again. lol 

 I don't know what's going to happen next. I guess I'll wait until it completely fades then decide.
It's fun to experiment but be ready for the results. You either will like it or hate it. lol
Have a great weekend💕

The Bad Habit Athena Palette with some eye looks

Leave a Comment
I'm really liking the sister palette to the Bad Habit Beauty's Aphrodite. Not only is it pigmented and beautiful, it's pretty much the dupe for the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk, which I do not own because  it's a bit pricey for me at $65 bucks.

As for the Athena palette, it has metallics, shimmers, mattes and a glitter top coat just like Desert Dusk. These shadows pop more on the lids with a makeup setting spray. I use the NYX dewy setting spray on my brush then dip them into the shadows to get beautiful and vibrant long wearing results.

You can get this this palette on the Shop Hush site or on the app for $12.00

Here's the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette which is very colorful and beautiful as well.

Here's the Bad Habit Beauty Athena Palette

                                         and now for the looks I did using some of the shadows...
                                                                         Look 2

 I'm very pleased with the performance of this palette and for 12 bucks it's a total shocking deal.
Stay tuned for my next post! My hair is no longer pink 😳😲 💟
