For the Curls, the Culture, the Curves!

I'd already decided Beyonce was about to acquire more of my coinT this year because Ivy Park. Kelli, my favorite HBO Insecure cast member, rocked some for the finale and Mobile's own Lavern Cox is the newest face of the brand. Yes, mostly for shallow reasons and I'm ok with that. The unshallow reason? Yonce has a new baseball cap with big haired ladies (and some gentlemen)  in mind!

It'll run you about $35. I never said cheap....

I've already decided to crowd fund my Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter but I've just been inspired to buy Cover Girl foundation because I'm very cheap and more than $10 for makeup sounds hella expensive. Speaking of HBO's Insecure, the shows creator Issa Rae has been invited to sit with the easy, breezy, beautiful, cover girls. While I'm sure my shade is only available in Queen Latifah's Cover Girl Queen Collection I'm throwing them my monies. Awkard black girls like myself see you Issa and we salute you. We are on the come up! One time for the weird!

I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head. Never EVER in my life did I imagine I'd be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come. Visit @COVERGIRL to learn more #COVERGIRLMADE

Danielle Brooks better know as Tastee on the Netflix's original Orange is the New Black is curvy girl goals. From her Essence cover with a slew of famous curvy girls to her effortless ability to dress her curves for any occasion, it makes sense she'd create her own line. Danielle announced on her Instagram that she’s collaborating with Universal Standard to design their new Tria Collection. The line is known for catering to women sizes 10-24 so it's a perfect fit. 

.....oh, by the way, this will also not be cheap. Most items retail for about $200

📣THE DAY HAS COME📣I’m designing @universalstandard's new Tria Collection! Beyond excited about this collaboration with this amazing brand! You'll soon be able to shop this look and a few others. Can't wait to show you more. For now, stay tuned! If you don’t already follow them on IG - do! #USxDB #Tria4US #nowyoucan #voiceofthecurves Check out link in bio. 💋
