CLEANSE BY LAUREN NAPIER Introducing: Cleanse by Lauren Napier

On a flight from Dubai to New York City, celebrity makeup artist LAUREN NAPIER found herself trapped in a window seat. Unable to leave her seat to refresh her face, she was struck with an idea that would change how we cleanse our skin, on the go: “I was delirious from nearly 30 hours in transit, I wanted to freshen up my face, but I couldn’t. The bulky package of cleansing wipes I had, was all dried out.”

CLEANSE by LAUREN NAPIER is a set of twelve individually packaged facial cleansing wipes, that fits neatly into your traveling makeup bag, briefcase or evening clutch. “Because let’s face it, sometimes we want to cleanse before cocktail hour, we want to cleanse before spin class, sometimes a gal doesn’t make it home and refuses to leave her face all over his pillowcase,” laughs Lauren.

How are You Doing… Really?

HOW ARE YOU DOING How are You Doing... Really?

Its been a while since I took the time to ask my Brown Sistas and brothas how they are doing. I’ve been a bit MIA myself since mid-February, dealing with many of the curve balls life seems to throw you when you least expect it.

Like many of you, when things get rough I tend to clam up. I close down and smile, so as not to let anyone know that things are amiss.

Thinking about it a bit more, that’s probably the same thing Karyn Washington did. If only someone had looked beyond the smile and asked “How are you doing… really,?” she and others like her might still be here.

KARYN WASHINGTON 350x165 Remembering Karyn Washington

This post is not going to be about suicide or mental health. I have read enough speculative pieces about Karyn Washington’s emotional state in the days following her passing and I do not wish to add to that canon. Instead, I want to remember how she lived and what a great impact she has had on so many of us.

Has God Abandoned Us?

HAS GOD ABANDONED US 140x140 Has God Abandoned Us?

It is said that the root causes of all our difficulties is: human selfishness, mistaken order of values and sin. We need a new way of thinking about ourselves, about our relationship with the world and with God. In the news and daily publications, human suffering, violence, starvation, poverty, disease and war are reported daily—not to mention the pollution of our waters, air and land.

When God created us, he envisioned a world of beauty and harmony; he created the world, making it every part an expression of his wisdom and love. Humans were created in his image and likeness; he gave us dignity, an immortal soul, self-awareness and freedom. But we sinned by disobeying him, and thereby rejecting his design for creation. So the original harmony of creation was destroyed; that was the first sin…not when Cain killed his brother Abel, Genesis 4:8.
