Junie Bee Nails x Teyana Taylor
If you haven't already heard, Teyana Taylor recently announced that she's opening a 90s-themed nail salon in Harlem! I know I'm not the only one who's excited because I loveeeeeeeeee nails!! There hasn't been a lot of info as far as the location or opening date but stay tuned.....I know I will be!
I know my fellow West Indians will appreciate this one! I recently came across a monthly subscription box with uniquely tailored products that are essential in many West Indian kitchens. Even if you're not West Indian but love the food, you can get your hands on products like (seasonings, pepper sauce, sorrel, pholourie mix, curry, and so much more). Visit www.callaloobox.com for more information.
Do you suffer from painful mentsrual cramps?! Then, you might want to check out Livia. It's pretty much a small, clip on device that, once turned on, eliminates pain associated with cramps.

Get Divorced Online...
If you didn't believe the internet and technology has taken over, you probably will after reading this post. Yes, you can now get divorced online. And it's not that expensive. You can start with a simple questionnaire to find the package that best suits you. The most expensive package listed is $2500 (plus additional state fees). Not sure how I feel about this, but I guess it does save time since so many people do everything else online. So if you're ready to call it quits with your hubby (or wifey) check out www.itsovereasy.com

There's Something About Cardi!
I must admit my love for Cardi B grows more and more every day (actually, it's borderline obsession at this point!). But I wasn't always feeling her. My boyfriend first showed me her IG page back when she was just a regular stripper from the Bronx posting videos with no chill. And I was sooooo annoyed! But she grew on me. She around my age, she's a Libra like me, she's half Trini (like me!), and she also doesn't give a fuck (LIKE ME!!!). And just like any other Libra she's sensitive, self-conscious, and super down to earth, but will still fuck you up if need be. But that's not what I love most about her. My love for Cardi B is simply because of the way she leveled up. Whether you respect her beginnings or not, if Cardi B doesn't motivate you to never stop the grind then you're fuckin' bugging....or a hater! Either way, she's taking the world by storm and I hope she never stops! I recently checked out her interview with Fader magazine and of course I loved it. And if after you read it and you don't love her too (or at least respect her) then idk what else to tell you! www.thefader.com/2017/06/22/cardi-b-cover-story-interview
