#WritersBlockWednesdays: Is Beauty Only Skin Deep

skindeep_natural4Whew! this California weather change has taken a beating up on my skin. It has been extremely hot during the day and cold at night. No complaints here just stating the facts. Born and raised in Cali….the weather here year round is great….just not right as were transitioning into fall lol. Between my allergy flare ups and testing out these beauty products; now it not the time to be battling changing weather climate shenanigans. You don’t know how to dress in the morning let alone which face to put on.

Since I’ve been in-between skin outbreaks, I’ve been upset at the world and didn’t want to see anybody. Too vain to go outside without makeup let alone showcasing skin that was dry, tight, itching, irritated, peeling. But even with a face full of hives, it does gets better. Thank god for dry essential oils. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil gave my skin life with a flawless glow both underneath and on top of my foundation. Determined not to get behind on my to-do-list, I made it work. I always say beauty is suffering and sacrifice. This season I took one for the team yaaasss honey! And the beauty revenge award going to…..The Intoxicating Beauty, Kahlua Parker.

I am my beauty brand; Kahlua Parker also known as Kahlua Parker Beauty. As my brand expands into other areas within the cosmetics industry, I have been a walking billboard. Double checking my makeup look. Triple checking my power moves. The representation of my business brand means everything to my overall success. As shallow and contradictory as it may seem…my looks are everything.skindeep_natural3

People are judging me at every post, tweet, angle, filter and how many times I wore my favorite black dress. I’ve been skin depressed for about month now. I had events to attend, dates to go on and haters to slay on; ain’t nobody got time for jacked up skin. There was no time to be sobbing over how my skin looked. This is my passion. Whether people agree with my vanity or not. It sure as hell not going to stop me from encouraging others to enhance their definition of beauty.

Be your own kind of beautiful. Beauty is only skin deep. There are a lot of attractive people in this world with ugly insides. I’m organic; a genuinely nice person with a good heart. The world teaches you to hate but I still love hard. I love deep. I’m loyal to a fault.

Royalty is in my blood. I’m at a point in my life where inner peace is where I feel most confident despite life’s opposition.

#WritersBlockWednesdays: WiFi Love

Technology opens Pandors box. The options are limitless. Will you WiFi your love in 2016?


for the last few weeks Ive not only been working my face, missing Sunday morning worship and trying to stay ahead of the trends; I’ve been #LoveInLimbo with a few of my suitors. Before I start downloading my feelings to this dude I need to know is this a real connection. I honestly don’t have the energy to continue with the dating shenanigans.  “I’ve realized that you continue to text me instead of calling me because you have nothing to talk about.” Hashtag you are the you could do better list in my phone


Recently, my friends have been encouraging me to sign up for online dating. Ummm WiFi love??? I laughed so hard. I figure the odds of a person lying to me are greater increased. He can create this ideal man online but then when it comes down to shipping he either can’t deliver or comes with a lot of fluff. I get all that plus good snacks with human love. Who needs a WiFi love too??? It takes too much time to feel out the application, upload a nice but not slutty profile pic then browse potential matches. Lately since watching love reality TV shows; Arranged, Married At First Sight, 90 Day Fiance has me addicted to the idea of arranged marriages putting your quest of love and committment to the real test. Smh honestly I would be open to an arranged marriage. Omg I can’t believe I wrote that. But this is my online diary duh. Well I will just give it god and go to sleep. I’m definitely not going to loose any beauty sleep over. But venting is good for the soul.


I say my 2016 new years love resolution is to know what you need in a man, know what you want in a man but be willing to compromise. Finding love is the easy part. The real work is keeping the love that you found.
