Update to IvolveBeauty.com

It's been a while, but I have finally updated the website. Right now I am exhausted, but I'm thankful that I was able to change the design. This has been one of my goals for the past few months, so to finally have it up is extremely rewarding, despite the challenges.

Take a look here.

Latest Books: The Grunt and The Ugly Girlfriend by Latrivia S. Nelson

If you are like me, reading a book can shape your whole day. I've read to the point where I have a mini library with shelves packed full of books ranging from fiction to nonfiction, mysteries, dramas, history, romance, poetry, and economics. Learning is one of the greatest abilities in life, and reading goes along with it.

So I'll take a few moments to share with you two of the latest books I have read. Both books are by best selling author Latrivia S. Nelson. She has written many interracial romance novels. You can credit her for Ivy's Twisted Vine, The Medlov Crime Family Series- Dmitry's Closet, Dmitry's Royal Flush: Rise of The Queen, Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign, and Saving Anya (upcoming), and also The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov (series). She is also known for The Lonely Heart Series, which includes The Ugly Girlfriend, Finding Opa!, and The Grunt.

Links to the previous book reviews can be found here.

Let me start off with The Grunt. One of the reasons why I enjoyed reading this book is because the story is told from mostly a male's perspective.The lead character- Brett Black- is a Recon Marine who has to cope from one circumstance to another fairly quickly revolving around what he discovers about his wife (who was seriously trifling). Life really throws him through a couple of loops when she leaves him and their son, so he is forced to deal with the events that unfold afterwards.  He finds relief and comfort in Courtney Lawless who is caring and compassionate. Their relationship becomes stronger after she agrees to become a live-in nanny for his son, but they are tested because of who Courtney is- she happens to be the Lieutenant Colonel's daughter and her brother is the Captain.

I truly enjoyed the pace, but the ending left me wanting to read more (in a good way). In our society you often read or hear about single mothers, but rarely do you read about single fathers, let alone single fathers in the military.

Recent Mississippi Hate Crime- White Teens Beat and Run Over Black Man

I didn't hear about this from my local news or mainstream media (as of yet), but from a family member.  The headline didn't surprise me, but it did lead me to question where were the parents because they are also at fault. It stems from a group of white teenagers driving from their town after a late party, to Jackson, Mississippi with the intent to find a black victim- which is basically premeditated. You can watch the video below for the details.

I pray for the family of Mr. James Anderson in hopes that they will attain justice.

Handmade Red Feather Earrings

These are another pair of earrings that I had the pleasure of making. You can view the previous pair of earrings that I made here. I'm getting better at making each pair, so practice makes perfect!


I recently baked some cupcakes for a local church bake sale, so I decided to share some pictures. The flavors were vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, and chocolate peanut butter.

Anything can happen when it comes to baking. I started early in the morning so that I could be better prepared if something didn't go satisfactory, but everything went extremely well. I absolutely enjoy baking, but it has taken much effort, and plenty of trial and error.
