I use the Curl Recharge spray primarily for touching up my curls and also as a prep for styling it on 2 or 3-day old braidouts and twistouts and it works great! MIZANI is giving away 4 sets of hair products for you lovelies!

Ever heard of black | Up cosmetics? No? Well if not, LBS is about to put you on! They are a high-end French based cosmetics brand, specifically catering to women of color. They offer everything from foundation to eyeshadow, lip shades and everything in between.
They also have 15 foundation shades for women of color from fair to very deep – that’s right FIFTEEN SHADES. That’s pretty awesome in my book, considering standard beauty brands only offer a handful, if that.
Being broke is no joke, especially around the holidays. One simply does not have time to pinch pennies, so we’ve put together 5 awesome DIYs you can gift to your favorite peeps if you’re on a low budget. Thank us later.
If you’re obsessed with footwear and accessories like I am, I’m sure you’ve heard of online retailer and shoe subscription service JustFab.com. They tout a vast array of chic & trendy shoes and accessories at incredibly reasonable prices. I’m talking fancy party heels for $39.95/pop!
For those of you who reside in the Glendale, CA area their flagship store is hosting a huge 30% off sale at Glendale Galleria. And for those of you, like me, who can only shop JustFab online – know that they give new members 20% off the first purchase + FREE shipping. It’s a no-brainer. And also an awesome gift for a shoe-lover.

Today’s Fab4Holiday giveaway comes courtesy cosmetics company BECCA Cosmetics. I feel in love with them upon attending one of my blogger beau’s events . Danielle of The Style and Beauty Doctor hosted an event in NYC featuring BECCA and that’s where I discovered them. What I love about the brand, besides the fact that they offer really awesome luxury makeup is that they cater to all skin tones.
Versatile, multitasking, virtuoso women make the world go-round. Our dedication to our careers, families, friends and self-care, makes us the queens of balancing. Our motto is everything is doable, no matter how difficult it may be.
Working women require much to keep our lives pushing. Most of those things are intangible like sleep, relaxation and an occasional retreat to a beach in the middle-of-nowhere. But simple gifts, like a new briefcase or blazer, can turn our Christmas lists into a way to expand our goals. We present a shopping guide for the working woman:
Can you believe the new year is only a little more than a week away? I seriously cant believe how fast 2013 has flown by. I literally can remember, clear as day, all the things I was doing at this time last year. The holiday parties I went to, the New Year’s eve plans I had. It seems like the older you get, the faster time flies. Anyway, enough ranting about being old (woe is me). I’m actually really excited for 2014! I’m now 33 weeks pregnant with a new baby on the way (woot woot #babybrownsugar).
Every holiday we get so wrapped up in ourselves with a laundry list of desired gifts, we forget about the significant others in our lives. Well here at LBS, we so happen to know a thing or two about what the gents may be hoping for this year. Check it out:
This Fab4Holiday wouldn’t be complete without a giveaway from one of my favorite skincare and hair brands – Shea Moisture! They are probably one of the most-talked about brands here on LoveBrownSugar.
I literally use Shea Moisture products everyday – from their body scrubs (which have been helping me immensely with retaining moisture in this harsh/dry winter) to their Curl Enhancing Smoothie which I use on my natural hair.
