Designer Frames with Glasses Plus Discount

Hey, Beauties and Beaus!

I have another product review for you! My friends at the glasses shop sent me a brand new pair of blogger computer glasses to try and I had to share my thoughts with you guys. They also gave me a discount code just for you guys when you make your first purchase.  

I work at a computer all day long, at my 9-5 job and when I get home at my blogging job. My eyes tend to get pretty tired at times and after much research I realized that I needed computer glasses to help with my eyes. Unlike the typical computer glasses with the yellow lenses, Glasses offers computer glass with clear lenses. This was great because it allows me to use them as fashion specs when I’m not using the computer. I noticed while using these glasses that all of my electronic devices, my T.V., my iPhone, and my tablet looked clearer. I have found myself using them late at night to watch T.V. just to get rid of the glare from the TV. FYI, I have perfect 20/20 vision. The glare from the computer and other electronic devices can cause your eyes to be tired and, therefore, extended use of such devices can cause your vision to get hazy while using them.

 I loved the packaging of my glasses. The frames came in a sturdy clear plastic case with a cleaning cloth to keep my glasses free from scratches and smudges. The case closes shut and locks into place to prevent it from opening if you were to drop the case by chance.

The Glasses Shop offers frames for the entire family. They offer both prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses. You have the option to select the frames that best suit your personality.  Their glasses selection gives you the option to purchase full frames, semi-rimless, and rimless frames.  Amongst their wide selection of eyewear they also offer vintage eyeglasses, reading glasses, cat eye glasses, tortoise eyeglasses, and clip-on sunglasses. Trust me you will be amazed at their offerings and all of the choices they have available. What I loved most about their product selection is their glasses are affordable. These glasses were less than $50 and I absolutely loved that I could afford the glasses. Most would consider these cheap glasses, and assume the quality may not be great, but the quality of these glasses were actually great. I didn’t have worry about adjusting them and they didn’t loosen up. I actually loved the quality of the lenses. They didn’t appear to be thin, easy to break, or scratch.  

Glasses has a big campaign called First Pair of Glasses Free which means all the new customers can have a pair of free glasses except shipping and handling fee. There are both optical glasses and sunglasses available at the same time.  You can get your first pair free today and because we love you so much for being beautiful people, you can get 50% off eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses using the code GSHOT50 when you check out (sales frames excluded).

If you are concerned about how your glasses look on your face before purchasing, Glasses offers you the virtual try on option. Simply upload a picture and try them on virtually. This was great for me because I was able to know exactly how I would look with the glasses on, and I love them!
Check out Glasses and don’t forget to use the discount when you check out! You can get two pairs of glasses for a great price!

My Experience: Stay Lean Tea 14-Day Detox Review

14 Day Detox Program

Hey, Beauty and Beaus!

As promised, I’m sharing my final thoughts and review of my experience with Stay Lean Tea. These past two weeks have been great and honestly, I have plans to keep this tea on hand. My love for tea has grown over the past year. Trying this tea was definitely a must because I love tea. Plus, anything that will help me feel and look better about myself, I’m completely all in and ready to incorporate into my life. Check out some more facts about the tea and read my final thoughts and review.

Quick Facts about the Tea

Stay Lean Tea will help to do the following to help promote healthy weight loss:

  • Burn Fat & Boost Metabolism
  • Detoxify the Body
  • Suppress Appetite
  • Removes Toxins from the Digestive Tract
  • Reduce Bloating and Water Retention
  • No Laxatives Included


Lean Burner Blend: Longjing green leaf, Pu'erh Tea Leaf, Dandelion Leaf, Lotus leaf, Lemon Grass, Oolong leaf, Goji Berry.

Lean Cleanse Blend: Longjing green leaf, Chamomile, Chrysanthemum, Rose flower, Lavender, Roselle, Lemon Grass.

The key ingredient is the rare leaf Longjing which is loaded with antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and catechins that work together to stimulate fat loss and detoxify the body.

My Experience

If you missed my one week review read it here. As you can see from the ingredients, this detox tea contains a lot of great ingredients and packs a lot of power. Unlike previous detox teas that I’ve used before, this one actually helped to suppress my appetite. I’m a snacker, who loves to always have something to munch on, this helped to kick my snacking habit to the curb. The appetite suppressant was great for curbing my food cravings between meals. As I mentioned during my 1-week review, I was able to actually fast from breakfast and lunch and not feel hungry. I noticed a lot of reduced water weight and bloating during the 14-day detox. This may be TMI, but my menstrual cycle was present during the detox. I tend to become really bloated before and during my monthly menstrual cycle. Using the tea helped to get rid of the bloat amongst other things (helped to relieve cramps). This is one of the reasons why I loved this tea! It has been the real MVP the past two weeks.

Love in my Cup

The taste of the tea was refreshing and easy to drink. I like to add lemon and honey to all of my hot teas regardless of the taste just to give it a little flavor. Adding both lemon and honey helped to bring out the flavors of the tea and give it some extra personality. Towards the end of the detox, I simply used lemon to add some flavor. Although the tea lacked the sweetness that I was used to, it still had enough flavor to drink with ease.

The Lean Burner morning tea contains Oolong Tea, known for its excellent health properties, gives the morning tea a coffee taste. It doesn’t taste like Starbucks coffee, but it does have that morning cup of coffee taste. This worked out for me because I didn’t drink and/or crave coffee while using this tea.

The Lean Cleanse Blend evening tea had more of an earthy taste. In my opinion, the evening tea was great with a little more honey than the morning tea because of its earthy taste. Don’t misunderstand me, it was easy to drink, but you couldn’t help but to notice the distinct difference between the morning and evening tea.  The Lean Cleanse Blend tea contains both Chamomile and Lavender. Once you finish the cup, you will feel ready for bed. I was so relaxed while drinking this tea, at first I couldn’t understand while I was so sleepy and ready for bed until I really paid attention to the ingredients. Honestly, I wish I could drink a cup every night, I have a hard time sleeping most nights, this tea helped! Due to the instructions, you can’t drink the tea every night, but you will enjoy a great night’s sleep. The tea doesn’t contain a laxative, so you don’t have to worry about experiencing stomach irritability and/or stomach cramping. Drinking plenty of water while using this tea helps this tea to be the most effective.

14 Day Detox ProgramLastly, what I loved most about this tea was the premeasured pyramid bags. The tea was ready to use. I didn’t have to use a tea diffuser or shake and shift my tea for effectiveness. Each little bag contained the right amount of ingredients to create the perfect cup of tea and set the perfect mood. I like easy ready to use things. I could make my hot water with my coffee maker, pour my hot water over my tea bag in my mug and let it work while I finished getting ready. Shifting, shaking, mixing, and measuring tea while I’m pressed for time simply adds to the fact I’m already in a hurry and late.

Was this tea effective?

I believe this tea held true to its claim. I didn’t lose major lbs., but I did loose water weight. Let me just add that due to my menstrual cycle and the difficulties I experience during that time of the month, I couldn’t do anything more than light toning exercises.  I didn’t feel bloated, my tummy appeared flatter, and I know that the detoxification process was working because I noticed changes in my skin. I had a really bad breakout on my face the week before using the tea and I’ve since noticed my skin clearing up and looking healthier. The tea did suppress my appetite and I know that it has helped to boost my metabolism just in time to help with my weight loss goals. I do have plans to keep this tea on hand because it was indeed a great experience. I believe with exercise and proper diet with this tea you can meet your goals.

My Experience 1 Week Review

I’ve used the tea for one week now and I love it! I’ve noticed a difference already within one week. It’s hard to give a full complete review so far because I’m not finished with the tea. However, I will say that I have experienced appetite suppression and reduced bloating. During the first week, I actually went on a personal fast for a period of time throughout the day for four consecutive days.  I started with my morning tea and it held me throughout the day until I ate dinner. I wasn’t hungry or searching for something to eat. I was actually comfortable and I didn’t feel starved. There wasn’t any hunger pains or stomach growling. Like most women, I deal with bloating. Especially at a certain time of the month. None of my clothes will fit comfortably. During the first week (which just so happened to be the time I expect bloat), I didn’t experience any bloating. I noticed that my clothes fit great and actually better. It’s too soon to say that I’ve lost weight (as in lbs), but I’ve noticed my tummy appears flatter.  I feel slimmer around the waist. 

There is soo much I could share from my first week, I don’t want to spoil it for my final review, which will be posted November 16, 2015 two days before the end of the giveaway!

Easy Solutions for Greasy Hair

Hey Beauties and Beaus, 

It's me Victoria, an official guest blogger for Miss Nic's Elegant Edge with a new post. Are you
tired of hiding greasy hair in a ponytail? Frustrated with a need of everyday shampooing? Check our simple solutions to defeat oily hair.

Solution #1 Wise washing

A desire to keep your hair clean is praiseworthy, but everyday shampooing only makes things worth. The more you wash, the more oil your body produces, so try to clean at least every two or three days.

Solution #2 Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is a great decision as it will keep your hair looking fresh and clean. I use Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder Dry Shampoo and it has never let me down.

Solution #3 Careful with hair products

Excessive use of styling gels, mousses and shine boosting products weighs down hair making it greasy within a very short period; and make sure to treat only ends when using a conditioner.

Solution #4 No touching

Did you know that you overload your locks with additional oil from fingers when touching it? If you want to defeat greasy hair, keep your hands off of it!

Four Tips help Avoid a Bad Hair Cut

Tip #1 Ask around

Conduct a serious investigation before coming to a salon – check their website, read feedback of clients, take a look at photos. Choose a professional stylist who will help you to create a flawless haircut considering the shape of your face and texture.

Tip #2 Emotions aside

Hasty decisions aren’t good idea in general and especially when it comes to your hair. Anger and disappointment might lead you to an experience you’ll later regret about.

Tip #3 Show a photo
In order for a stylist to know exactly how you want your hair to look like, bring a photo of a desired haircut. Stylists are visual people and it’ll make their life easier.

Tip #4 Speak up

Don’t be afraid to be honest when sitting in the chair and watching in the mirror – ask questions, disagree with length, make suggestions because this is your hair!

Despite the hiccup, I had such an awesome time and I want to continuously extend my gratitude to Family Dollar for such an AMAZING FABULOUS two days I', still in awe. Take me back PLEASE!

How to Create a Basic Skin Care Routine

Beauties and Beaus, 

I always receive compliments on how great my skin looks. EVERYONE seems to want to know what do I do to get/keep clear skin. It can be flattering to a degree, but I honestly work hard and overtime to make sure my skin is in great condition. Just like everyone else, I have bad days and my skin looks horrible.  I frequently wear makeup, so I have to make sure I'm really sticking to my skin care routine to make sure my skin stays the way I like it. Growing up, like everyone else, puberty made my skin look awful! I have experienced bad breakouts and to combat this, I had to create a skin care routine that I have stuck to for years. The only thing that has changed over the years is the products. Before I proceed, here is my disclaimer: I am a licensed cosmetologist, not a dermatologist. I can't give you sound advice concerning acne and/or what products you should use to help clear your acne. If you believe you have acne and it's a serious case, please consult your dermatologist. 

A good skin care routine will consist of the following: CTM (Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize). Simple and straight forward. EVERYONE, including the guys, should clean, tone, and moisturize their skin twice daily (Morning and Night). Skipping the twice a day will only create skin problems, not prevent them. I can not stress this enough. Most people wake up, splash water onto their face and they are out the door. This is not a great routine, water is great, but it's not enough. Let me break this down... 

Cleansing your face with a cleanser (soap, gel, or cream) will help to keep your skin clear from dirt, oil build up, and bacteria (all three are the primary cause for acne issues). Cleansing your skin regularly (2x per day) will help to get your skin on track and keep you from having problems in the future. In order for your toner, moisturizer and your extras (eye cream, exfoliant, facial mask) to work properly, you have to cleanse your skin. Avoid Bar Soaps such as bath soaps to cleanse your face. They can be over drying. 

Toning your skin will help to smooth it, calm it down after the cleansing process, replenish the surface of the skin, hydrate the skin, and remove any leftover makeup or dirt. Some toners even help to prevent breakouts or clear them up. You don't want to leave this out of your skin care routine.

Moisturizing your skin is necessary to help add moisture to your skin, prevent wrinkles, and protect it from sun damage. All skin types need moisturizer. Don't skip your moisturizer! 

How to determine which products to use

Before you purchase your products, you must first know your skin type. Many of the products your find in the store will be formulated to fit these five skin types. 

  • Normal: This skin type is neither oil or dry
  • Dry: This skin type may experience tightness, flaky areas, and/or dry patches
  • Oily: This skin type tends to be shiny, more prone to skin breakouts, and large pores
  • Combination (Normal/Oily) (Dry/Oily): This skin type will be oily in their 'T-Zone' (forehead, nose, and chin) area.
  • Sensitive: This skin type tends to react negatively to certain cosmetics and may become irritated by climate changes.

After you have determined what your skin type is, you can start purchasing products. You should know what your concerns are and what your desire to correct before choosing/trying a product to determine if you like it. For example I desire to prevent breakouts, I have combination skin, when I decide to try a new skin care product, I look for products formulated to prevent breakouts for combination skin. Finding the right product is simply trial and error. I have tried my share of skin care products and my favorite at this moment is the Aveeno skin care line. My focus is improving dark spots and evening out my skin tone. Aveeno focuses on doing this using soy. I use this product line daily and when I remove my makeup I use Neutrogena skin care products because they focus on deep cleaning my pores. If you've watched any of my tutorials, you will understand why I'm focusing on deep cleaning my pores at the end of the day. 

Products you need for a Basic Skin Care Routine
1. Cleanser
2. Toner/Astringent
3. Moisturizer (Day/Night)

Tools Needed for a Basic Skin Care Routine
1. Cotton Balls/Pads
2. Facial Cloth/Facial Buffs

Exfoliating and Facial Masks are two other important steps to incorporate into your skincare routine. Both can help to improve your skin further and keep it looking healthy and glowing. I will discuss both of these in later posts.

Keep in mind your diet (food intake) and water (8 glasses +) can determine the outcome of your skin. What you put into your body will reflect on the outside. I drink lots of water daily and I make sure to avoid sugary drinks/juice as much as possible. I prefer green tea (enriched with antioxidants) over other drinks. 

PS. As a woman of color, I swear by the Ambi Skin Care Product line. Especially the Complexion bar, Cocoa Butter bar, and Fade Cream. I will use these when I feel necessary. Throughout high school, these products were my favorites.

Stylish Frames with Firmoo

My Friends at Firmoo sent me my first pair of fashion specs/computer glasses a few weeks ago and as your beauty best friend and blogger, I wanted to share my experience with you.  I don’t wear glasses, and according to my doctor I have 20/20 vision. However, I work at a computer for my full-time job, my blog, and I’m just an all-around computer nerd, so my eyes do get a little tired. I’ve experienced blurred vision and just achy eyes in general just from extended computer use. There’s a name for these symptoms, according to the vision doctor, the issue is Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). The solution is simple…computer glasses.  It was suggested to me to find some computer glasses to wear while working on the computer, and after searching Amazon and EBay, all I could find were these ugly yellow tinted glasses.  The frames were unflattering and the yellow tint just made it even worse. I just put it to the back of my mind to revisit at a later time.

Firmoo contacted me and sent me a pair of fashion specs/computer glasses to try and I love them! They are completely adorbs and I’ve received tons of compliments. Good-Bye to the traditional goofy looking computer glasses and say hello to computer glasses that can double as the perfect faux specs to add to your everyday look.  Firmoo offers glasses for both men and women and some amazingly cute sunglasses to help you beat the heat. The selection of frames to choose from are great, they offer nerd glasses, designer glasses, reading glasses, prescription sunglasses, big glasses, computer glasses (including blue-light blocking lenses) and much more! Their website is updated daily with new frames to choose from, no worries with finding frames to fit your style preference. 

As I mentioned earlier, the typical computer glasses are just unflattering in appearance. I took advantage of their virtual look viewer to find the perfect frames to fit my face and appease my sense of style. I uploaded a picture of myself, made my selection, and I placed my order. It was that simple. The checkout process was easy and far from difficult. I was so happy to have the option to choose from multiple styles and not just one specific style for my computer glasses. Most of all my frames would be clear and not yellow. What’s even better, my glasses serve two purposes. I don’t have to limit them to computer use only. 

 My glasses came within a matter of days, and I received my new stylish frames, a case, carrying pouch, a cleaning cloth, and a tiny (double ended) screwdriver.  They have helped tremendously when I use the computer. No more suffering from CVS! If you check out their site right now, they are having a sale until the end of July. As a bonus, new customers receive 15% off your first pair. If you wear prescription glasses, you can enter your information before checking out.

I love my new frames and I’m sure you will find a pair to fit your style and personality! Happy Shopping!  

Bare Face Kinda Day
