Yes, helluuuuur. Welcome to your monthly dose of hoessentials!! Thanks for joining us 🤪.
Now let’s get to it.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer + Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
I’ve been using the SAME bottle of MAC foundation and NARS powder foundation since ~2015 (shows you how little makeup I used until recently). Being GROWN, I decided that I was capable enough to handle a full coverage foundation and thus, the hunt was on.
I was looking for a foundation that didn’t feel or look heavy. It needed to be a long-wear formula that could last through sweaty shifts in the club and handle the Houston weather. I did a ton of research (so you don’t have to) and consulted with watched a few of my favorite beauty gurus on yt and decided to take a chance on the Hourglass Seamless Finish Foundation Stick.
The same beauty influencers encouraged buying the same brand’s primer when buying a new foundation. They made sense, I mean, the two formulas are made to compliment each other. The products will work just fine as individuals, but will work even better together. So I decided to give the Veil Mineral Primer a chance, without looking too much into it.
BOIII!!! I do not regret a single got damn thing. The primer is L I T E R A L L Y a godly mixture of a cloud and liquid silk. It does a great job of creating a perfectly smooth base AND includes SPF which is v important. This primer is the perfect transition product between skin care and makeup prep.
If you wanna know more about skin care in your earlier twenties check out this post.
The foundation stick is everything I was looking for and matches me perfectly. They have 32!! shades with multiple undertones!!
So, I’m all about securing the bag in anyway possible and am always open to new ideas/methods to increase prosperity… which is how I stumbled into the world of law of attraction and money mantras.
Apparently a lot of strippers already use the laws of attractions and tbh I’ve heard mixed reviews on whether it works, BUT I definitely believe in the power of the universe and believe that energy can be used and manipulated in your favor.
A mantra is just a word or phrase that you repeat over and over and is used to promote concentration and create “energy vibrations.” It’s these vibrations that YOU create that will attract whatever it is you are seeking through your mantra. In our case, WEALTH. You’re basically using money mantras to turn yourself into a human magnet through concentrated energy and vibrations.
I’ve created this 👇🏼 pinterest board to house all my money mantras.
The key to using these mantras is repetition, good intentions, and concentration!
I haven’t seriously implemented money mantras into my hustle, but hopefully I can provide y’all with a positive review in a few weeks!
Has anyone else utilized money mantras or the law of attraction?
Lingerie Body Suits
Wearing lingerie as clothes is in (again/finally 🙌🏾).
Lacy lingerie body suits paired with literally any bottom is a fucking look.
I’m obsessed with this new trend because it perfectly blends together my two favorite looks of heaux and chic.
Meal Kit Delivery Services
Y’all. My life has forever been changed by my meal kit delivery service.
I was/am notorious for always. eating. out.
I’m lazy and slightly impatient and have no idea how to grocery shop so cooking just generally isn’t for me. Or so I thought.
After seeing the countless commercials I decided to give a meal kit delivery service a go. Especially, with the new customer specials, the service ended up being equivalent to what I spent going out to eat each week. I know there are a handful of companies to choose from and I just went with the cheapest one 🤷🏽♀️.
I started the service with the intention of eating healthier and eating in more. And that’s exactly what happened.
I get my meal kits delivered once a week and each insulated box comes with four different meals. Each meal kit inside the box has ALL the ingredients, spices, and instructions needed to make a gourmet (to me lmao) meal in your own kitchen! Everything is perfectly measured out and provided for you. It makes cooking a breeze!!
Here’s a vid of me excitedly opening my first box so y’all can see what I’m talking about.
Overall, it’s been a pretty good experience and I would recommend it to any busy hoe who wants to eat healthier and stop going out to eat so much.
Facebook lost its damn mind and we didn’t notice until now.
Whew, y’all. Buckle in for this one.
Basically, Facebook has been giving our private information to a political consulting firm who then used that data to influence the 2016 presidential election in TRUMP’S FAVOR.
There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s start with The Wired’s synopsis of what happened.
Cambridge Analytica, a data analysis firm that worked on President Trump’s 2016 campaign, and its related company, Strategic Communications Laboratories, pilfered the data of 50 million Facebook users and secretly kept it. This revelation and its implications, that Facebook allowed data from millions of its users to be captured and improperly used to influence the presidential election, ignited a conflagration that threatens to engulf the already tattered reputation of the embattled social media giant.
The scariest part, to me, is the insane privacy breach. They have sooooo much private information, such as call logs, SMS messages, monitoring what you like and post, etc. They’ve created personal “profiles” on over 50 million people off of this data and who knows what else they’re going to do with it. It’s obviously already been used for evil.
All of us need to be more vigilant with the access we allow companies and websites to have into our phones, computers, tablets, etc.
