#WritersBlockWednesday: Routine Or Addiction

blackloveDoes having a type mean you are settling for what you routinely like dating? Or could it be that you are addicted to loving the wrong person at any cost? I have been struggling with practicing #TheWait; waiting on my true love; the man that Yahweh has for me. I am a addicted to what I physically like so therefore I routinely date those types of guys. I desire a tall, dark, handsome, intelligent and god-fearing man that adores my body, worships my brains and appreciates my intelligence. Finding my Boaz has been no easy tasks. While patiently waiting, I decided to re-connect with me. Being the best I can be improves the dating process. Clear clutter for clarity! When you know he’s not for you or vice versa, delete the number, avoid all communication because this will free you up for the next suitor. I would go out on dates because I was bored. I began to get so consumed with the “why” we were not compatible, I realized that I was wasting time by routinely dating the wrong guys.

Dating is challenging in a world full of social media distractions. After drooling on my phone for a minute over a guy on instagram who was clearly made in Gods chocolate image; I came back to senses to realize that his looks may fade over time but will his loyalty to his wife and family come first. Will he profess his love for me even when I am not around? Will he provide for our family at all cost? Will he protect our family from harm?

#SavedSexySanctifiedSundays: Saved In The City TBT

Beauty Socialite, Kahlua Parker

Took a quick a cute #SavedInTheCity selfie break before giving thanks to God for hashtag giving me life during this mid-west county death heat. I was working on this filming for a few weeks in DC and in Indianapolis. It was so hot on in Indiana my life began to flash before my sweating eyes. I imagined that hell is going to be hotter than this. I immediately began to fall on my knees, worshiping and praising God for being alive to fulfill my destiny. The church is in me not in the building. So even though I had not been physically to church or bible study since traveling; I am thankful and humble wherever I am. Especially now that I’m in this air-conditioned room after long set hours.

Y’all know I love a good Jesus twerk professionally known as praise dancing. Head over to my youtube channel to watch my sister Lindsey get her praise.

#WritersBlockWednesdays: Are WE Ready For Matrimony

If you been on this #glitzglamgossip journey with me then you know that I’m a hopeless romantic. I love love. I love love songs. No matter how many times I experience heartbreak, I know that true love is still  possible. When I heard ‘Matrimony’ by Wale featuring R&B crooner Usher lol I fell in love all over again. Then when I when to youtube and saw the video my heart melted. I immediately added it to my #SummerLove2015 youtube playlist.wedding_candles

If there’s a question of my heart, you’ve got it
It don’t belong to anyone but you
If there’s a question of my love, you’ve got it
Baby don’t worry, I’ve got plans for you

But I’m promisin’ you better though
And your friends sayin’ let him go
And we ain’t gettin’ any younger
I can give up now but I can promise you forever though

After reading #TheWait by DevonFranklin and Meagan Good, I realized that I was created to love and receive love from the man who God (not Kahlua) has prepared just for me. I learned a lot about myself, the type of the guys I was choosing to date and how reconnect with God for spiritual guidance in times of weakness. I’m still a work in progress. Judge if you will but Im still going to love on me some chocolate lol.

#KahluasKonfessions: Love Detox (UPDATE)

Dear Secret Admirer.

I took a few weeks this spring to evaluate and reassess my journey in both my professional and personal love life. In trying to get this love thing right, dating at times can be mentally exhausting. No more decoding a dudes text messages. No more decoding the hints. Dude, just try saying what you really mean. Tell me how you feel about me. Honestly….I’m mature enough to process the information.

What’s on your mind? Do I make you a better man? Can you see yourself being in a committed relationship with me? Tell me what’s in your heart and I’ll tell you whats in mine. Let our minds compromise together in order for us both to be happy. Let our hearts communicate with each other the joys and sorrows of this amazing journey called life.

Xoxo.MadamK.

#KahluaParkerBeauty: Beauty Is Skin Deep Makeup Look

You probably can’t tell from my pictures the texture of my skin is rough. Up close my friends could tell how bad my skin looked. My skin has been peeling and discolored. One night cream was too strong for my skin resulting in the top layer of my skin burning. My under eye area resembled a healing black eye.

skindeep_natural3Beauty is suffering and sacrifice. When I took on this new exploration into the beauty blogging world, I had no idea the extreme sacrifices I was taking on my skin. I refused to let this breakout get me down. I just tweaked my beauty routine a little bit.

skindeep_natural2After washing my face with Philosophy Purity Wash, I slathering 2 drops of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil all over my face. Once the oil has almost absorbed into the skin, I apply a quarter size of Lancome Bienfait Teinte Beauty Balm #7 Suede with my Beauty Blender Pro. Blend out. Set with Milani All Over Bronzer #01 Bronze Glow. Using Smashbox Fusion Soft Light in Baked Starburst to highlight my cupids bow and bridge of nose. Enhanced my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Dark Brown. In this look I choose to focus more my eyes to deflect from my skin issues. Urban Decay Naked Palette is one of my go-to for a quick natural smokey eye. From this palette, I used Half-Baked on the brow, Side Car in the inner corner, Naked as a trationsitonal color and Toasted on the lid. Finishing the eye with Benefit Roller Lash Mascara in black to create that baby doll wide eye look without wearing false eyelashes. Complete the look with a brown colored matte lip, Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in True Grit.skindeep_natural1

Head over to Youtube to watch I how I bring my skin back to life.
