Test Your ‘World AIDS Day’ IQ

November 30, 2012 1 comment

December 1st is World AIDS Day.  This annual observance focuses on the challenges of living with HIV and ways to support those impacted by the disease.   Use this opportunity to learn the facts and share your knowledge with others.

Below is a quiz I found online to test what you know about HIV.  I scored 90% when I took it.  I encourage you to test yourself and use this day to reflect, learn about prevention and focus on staying healthy.

Yours by grace,



Beauty Upgrade with YouTube

November 27, 2012 Leave a comment

While looking for a special updo hairstyle I discovered Vaughn Monroe on YouTube.  Vaughn’s channel is Ms. Vaughn TV.  She has natural hair like moi and shows steps for creating glamourous & beautiful styles.  I subscribed and have become a huge fan.

HAIR: Twisted Updo

She shows make-up, fashion and gives skin care advice.  Through her I’ve found some great looks and helpful techniques.  She’s pushed me to experiment in ways I usually wouldn’t.   The results have been creative and fun  – a nice change of pace.

MAKEUP: Doll Face

Check her out when you get a chance.  She and her sister Meechy Monroe  also recently launched an online shop with reasonable, stylish fashion and beauty finds. It’s called The Style Queue.  These ladies provide great information and tips. The sites are great for style and beauty inspiration.
