Celebrate Valentine’s Day with these!
WATCH. Relive the romance that led to one of the most beloved families in the White House. Southside with You shares the origin love story of U.S. President Barack Obama (played by Parker Sawyers) and lawyer Michelle Robinson (played by Tika Sumpter) as they go on that fateful first date in the summer of 1989. Available on HULU.
SIP. Valentine’s Day is all about loving yourself first. This weekend, give yourself some deserved me-time with a lovely cup of tea. Brooklyn Tea is a black-owned company that offers high quality, organic, and fair trade loose tea. The brand’s “Black Rose Tea” is a perfect choice, as its flavorful floral blend promotes youthful skin with Vitamin C and detoxing properties. Get your cup at BrooklynTea.com.
WEAR. British makeup brand Lottie London partnered with social media star Carrington Durham for a new beauty box to create your perfect sultry look for Valentine’s Day. With “the rusts” eyeshadow set, TVDivaGal smoked out my eye with the purples “crave, fire and flex” as suggested by Carrington for darker skin tones, and it looked fab! The box also comes with “stamp liner” that allows you to stamp on a cat-eye wing; “oil slick” in Extra Cherries, which is a 100 percent vegan lip oil that adds just the right hint of pink. There’s also “dewy setting spray” so your V-Day glow will last all day long! Get your Lottie London x ASOS Exclusive Box x Carrington Favorites Set, exclusively at ASOS.com. $20.
