Book Collaboration with KaysWay.com

Hey Divas & Gents,

So to start off 2015 with the mind, I am doing collaboration each month for the year with my friend, sister from another mister, motivator, future business partner. Kays Way.

Each month we will introduce a book on our blog. The new book of the month will be announced on the 1st of each month and by the end of the month check back with us for our personal thoughts on the book. Twitter chats will be in the future, comments are a must so we can know how did you like the book. Giveaways in the summer as the summer months are always great for popular books and new releases.


Being the side chic is fine as long as you know your role and don't have main chic expectations...right? Lala has been playing the role of Tre's side chic for the past two years well aware of the fact that he has no plans of leaving his girlfriend/babymama Kisha of seven years. She's always played by the rules but can she continue to stay in her lane after falling in love and becoming pregnant by her young boy-toy? Or will her feelings for him and the fact that she is pregnant cause her to want to change the game and become more than just his side chic?

La'Tonya West  has a facebook page, where you can connect with her, her books are available on Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble.com

Now let me introduce you to Kays Ways!!

Kara use to watch her mom get up early to get ready for work and like most girls, she watched her in her Conair Mirror with her Avon and Revlon Makeup, sometimes also watching her paint her nails while watching TV. To a little girl like Kara her mom was already beautiful with out or without makeup.

2015, Kara is now a mom of 3 kids her youngest a little girl who I truly call my own Khloe. From the tomboy to full blown makeup addict. KaysWays was founded. She loves all thing makeup and all things beauty. She is and will always be the woman who will stop at the local beauty supply store but she is also the woman who will go in MAC, Sephora, and IMATS with grace searching products that suits her needs and her viewers.

You will honestly get it her way, honest, tech savvy and has it her way.

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Hi Divas & Gents,

                       I have found something new and exciting I have to share. I love Makeup Geek and Marlena.  Makeup Geek TV has a Youtube Channel along with Marlena.

During the Holiday season, Makeup Geek launched there first every foiled eyeshadows, which is described as a cutting edge formula with intense pigmentation & an opaque, metallic, foiled finish in only one swipe.

Promotional Discount Price for all shadows $89

These will apply as if you apply them with a wet brush- meaning richly pigmented, metallic, and shiny- but when using them dry, and without having to pack the colors on.

                                                                     Each Shadow individually is $9.99
There are ten shades total, ranging from lighter shades like a soft gold and peach, to deeper, rich shades like a beautiful burgundy and deep teal.

                                                       Swatches without Primer

Below are each shadow with details about them to help you choose.

                                                    Magic Act Light is a gold with yellow undertones and a foiled finish.

                                                  In the Spot Light is a Soft pink with coral undertones and a foiled finish.

                                        Grandstand is a Medium rose gold with slight taupe undertones and a foiled finish.

                                                    Showtime is a Rusty brown with warm undertones and a foiled finish

                                                   Flame Thrower is a True brightened warm copper with a foiled finish.

                                               Jester is a Bright mossy green with slight gold undertones and a foiled finish.

                                                              Houdini is a Deep emerald teal green with a foiled finish.

                                       Mesmerized is a Deep medium taupe with strong purple undertones and a foiled finish.

                                             Center Stage is a Bright royal blue with a foiled finish

                                                         Caitlin Rose is a Bright amethyst purple with a foiled finish.

These can be applied effortlessly in just one swipe with no primer required. With a diverse array of rich colors and a smooth silky formula that we believe help elevate pressed eye shadows to the next level of exceptional quality.

- These pans can be placed in empty palettes such as Z-Palettes.
