Skinny Shaming Is A Real Thing

Let's get real today, many people seem to think that skinny shaming is acceptable. Suggesting certain women really need to get a pizza or a burger and eat the whole thing it is an unacceptable joke. People only hear about fat shaming but skinny shaming is a real problem too.

Body shaming
NounThe action or practice of humiliating someone by making mocking or critical comments about their body shape or size.

Don't get me wrong, I have had positive comments like I can pull of anything because I am skinny, that I could be a model and I have had girls tell me that they would kill to have my body however I have been asked how sad it is not having a big ass, I have been told that the wind will blow me away and that men do not want bones, they want curves (especially from the African community). Bones, too skinny, toothpick are just a few of the names I've been called over the years. Instead of being greeted with a typical "Hey, how are you" you often hear "you are…


I know most female (if not all of them) can relate on that most annoying moment when we are getting ready and find out that we run out of products or when we drop our compact powder or eyeshadow on the floor. Ladies, no more panic, I have a solution to that problem. If you want to know how to make you favorite makeup and products last longer, keep on reading:

  • We all have that favourite foundation, the one we don't want to let go and if you think you've run out of it, chances are you haven't. A decent amount of product get stuck in nooks of a bottle, so pour your face moisturizer inside of it, shake it up to mix it and tadaaa.

  • Did you break your compact power, your eyeshadow or your favorite blush? Girl do not throw it away, I repeat do not throw it away. Just add few drops of rubbing alcohol until the crumbles become a paste and smooth the product by pressing it back with your finger or a back of a spoon. 

  • Your lipstick broke by accident? No worries, I got you. Melt both sides a bit by using a lighter and then put them back together carefully and wait for it to dry. Voila you can use your lipstick again.

  • So you are doing your makeup and find out that your mascara is dry. Don't panic, take a glass of warm water and put the holder in it. Your mascara will almost feel like new again.

  • Makeup brushes are normally expensive, so make sure to wash them regularly with baby shampoo or dish detergent and olive oil. Wash gently the ends with olive oil and then with shampoo or dish detergent, rinse and lay them flat to dry. 

  • You are doing your manicure but the top of the nail polish won't open? Well don't throw it away, take a cup of warm water and then dip only the handle in the water to loosen it up. Make sure not to put the whole thing in the warm water.

I hope these hacks will be helpful for you as they have been for me. Thank you for stopping by.
