“You Are Black Gold, Baby”

New song “Black Gold” by Ezperanza Spalding Ft. Algebra is simply amazing! I can’t tell you how good it is to hear uplifting music! After hearing this song, I can’t wait for Esperanza Spalding’s forth coming album, Radio Music Society, which is suppose to be released on March 20th! 

What do you think of the song? 

E.L.F Haul & Organizing My Makeup Collection

I received my first pretty large order from EyesLipsFace [E.L.F] and I’m excited to add everything to my makeup collection! I also purchased a makeup organizer from Target to put things in order because my previous system was horrible!

You can check out the video of the haul on my YouTube Channel [PiecesOfJojo] and/or check below to see each of the products that I received and how my make makeup collection transformed…

Here is what my makeup looked like originally. Quite unorganized, hard to find things, and just simply a mess. 

So with all the new products I received, it was time for me to get better organized. Below is a shot of  my entire order and it all cost under $30! I’m telling you, E.L.F. is so affordable!

Motivation in Music

Truth be told, I have not been my usual ambitious, million projects at once, superwomen self in a few months. I have felt quite unmotivated and just down right L-A-Z-Y!

I have tried to chalk it up to “oh, I just need a break” or “I finished undergrad in 3 years and got my degree at 20, leave me alone”…but those are just excuses, and I truly dislike excuses. I had just lost my niche and didn’t really know what to do or how to find it nor did I have the desire to figure it out. So I sat around, just living life as it was handed to me not by what I made out of it. 

But if finally hit me last week and oh may, it was a great feeling! I finally felt energized and enthused that I’d be able to put my passion towards a great venture! And listening to The Roots “How I Got Over” album has be instrumental [pun intended] in keeping me motivated! My two favorite tracks are the above, “The Day” and “Hustla” which is below! Listen to at least these two tracks and tell me you don’t feel motivated to “starting living today” because “if you’re not a hustler, baby you’re a customer”…
