Jessica Spence Artwork
You can feel Jessica Spence‘s humble, calm, energy when she enters the room. The talented artist has been creating a buzz over her latest series, ‘It’s A Process,” which is a reaction to the negative ways natural hair women are viewed and portrayed in environments like the workplace and school. She created this beautiful series, which uplifts Black hair in all it’s kinks, twists, braids and more.

Luxurious Lip Scrubs You Need in Your Life ASAP

Branded: Lip Scrubs
Chapped lips are the opposite of sexy.
Sure, upping your Chapstick game helps, but it's just one half of the equation.
If you're starting this season off with flaked, dried-up lips there's no way that a lip balm alone (no matter how good it is) will cure you of your woes. To fix the real issue you've got start from scratch, and that means investing in an exfoliating lip scrub for the summer.

#WCW: Zoe Kravitz you’re the daughter of rock legend, Lenny Kravitz, and one of the most beloved actresses of Cosby and A Different World fame, Lisa Bonet, you’re just bound to be a vessel of coolness. There’s no way around it. Zoe Kravitz undeniably embodies just that, and has made a name for herself outside the accomplishments of her parents. Blazing the silver screen in movies like Dope and most recently Rough Night, all eyes are definitely on her. Her slight elusiveness coupled with her charming and witty personality have many wanting more, and we’d be remiss in saying we didn’t feel the same.

Yas, Kontour Kween!
Today at 9am PST, Kim Kardashian released her highly-anticipated namesake Crème Contour and Highlight Kits.

Retailing for $48 ($62.95 with taxes and shipping), the social media mogul literally watched her products sell out within in a matter of minutes. Medium, which the beauty maven wears on her paler days, was the first to go.

As you head into the dog days of summer filled with backyard bbq’s and poolside lounging, you are destined to run into the classic short dilemma: How short is just too short? In our 20’s throwin’ on a pair of daisy dukes seemed like the coolest way to beat the heat, but as we move into our more sophisticated decades – 30’s, 40’s and beyond – it’s normal to feel like it may be time to tuck away all those assets.
