Unboxing @MyEbonyBox|| November Edition

Hi everyone,

I hope this post finds you well!

After their first birthday, My Ebony Box got a face lift and it looks smashing. MEB truly glossed up. When they emailed me the new look of the box, all I could think was “yassss! Go on queen!”

Hello there!

​August is almost over so you KNOW that my box is here and has been here but… I was not. I travelled so I was not home when it arrived.


I’m sure you’ve seen the content on instagram or twitter but here is my unboxing post and my first impression.

@MyEbonyBox review || May’s Edition

Good morning! How are you doing? Happy new month!

Just wanted to say a warm welcome to the new followers/ subscribers and thank for the love and support to everyone (old and new)

And it is here! I let June finish without the review of May’s box… sorry! I can barely believe that we’ve gone through half of 2017… just like that! I will be doing a big reflection and review of my life goals and accomplishments of the past 6 months!


Anyway, let’s see what has been used in May’s box

Thursday Three… it’s all about that base, ’bout that base!

Good morning to you!

How is your day going? Earlier last week, I was thinking about how it has been a long time I’ve posted a Thursday Three so I’m here to rectify that. Here are three product I have been loving and enjoying for the past weeks:

Unboxing @MyEbonyBox #4||May’s Edition

Unboxing @MyEbonyBox #4||May’s Edition

Hello there!

A new month, a new box! My box got here on Thursday with a new set of goodies.

Let us have a look at it all.

We still have the classy and classic black box.

1- Gold eyeliner – Rimmel London RRP £4

My kinda eyeliner to be honest. I used to love coloured eyeliners but for some reason we drifted apart. This right here is motivation. Watch out for the makeup look post…

I could not find it on Rimmel’s website but here is a link to it on amazon

2- Exfoliating cleanser– bea skin care RRP £29

This is the second part for the bea duo promised last month. i am now ready to use the konjac sponges. Also it is a full size product so yay!

3- Shea and coconut oil- Gro healthy RRP £4.49

I have grown fonder of this brand thanks to My Ebony Box, although buying any of their product is a hassle- especially for me living in Bournemouth *sigh*

Anyways, oil is alway needed for my natural hair. Since I am trying to grow it out, I’m going to work out on a good but simple regimen to see how much it helps.

4- QUEEN make up/ pencil bag– My Ebony Box RRP £6

😍😍👸🏾👑- That’s all I have to say!! #Highness

5- Scotch bonnet sauce sample- Tropical Paradise Preserves RRP £2

When I say this item, all I could think of was Beyoncé’s lyrics: “I’ve to hot sauce in my bag…”

Okay, I know she was not talking about literal hot sauce but in my case, it applies so we’re gonna roll with it :)-  Their FB page is here.  (That’s the first time I cannot eat the edible item whilst typing the unboxing post… sad)

6- Creamy whipped shea butter with precious oils- Aiko Naturals RRP £3.99

I used to do my own whipped shea butters so it is nice to go back to something that I know and that is practical and easy to use everyday.

7- 2 Girls artwork postcard- Nicholle Kobi 

More art!! I now can’t wait to move in my own house where I can really display all the beautiful melanin filled art that I have been receiving. I really wish I knew how to draw sometimes…

Also, I just checked her website and Nicholle is French so it’s like automatic love lol

The box’s content amounts to £49 that is almost the price I pay for THREE boxes. A big win if you ever ask me!! This is very profitable so if you are looking for a subscription box, I would definitely recommend this one.

I have some exciting news to share with you guys. I shall do it this week. If you follow me on snapchat (@mlle_mara) or instagram (@highnessempowershighness), you are aware of it all.

So follow me there not to miss out!!

Back and Front and Black and White || #WhatIWoreToChurch

“I’ve been looking at your shirt and your front looks like your front but your back looks like your front too… what’s that about?”

Well…. that’s my shirt!


I am posing and directing the pictures at the same time…

Zara did me well. I got this shirt for a tenner or just under. I was not 100% sure of it when I took it from the rail but I love me a white top so I told myself that I would try it home to see what it really looks like on.

To put it simply, I’m glad I took it in the end.

Usually, when I get clothes from Zara, I really feel like someone that has her life together.

Top: Zara

Jeans: H&M

Shoes: New Look

Although or because I wore all black and white, I decided to wear my colour on my face. Check the post on my makeup here 💜


And that is it for me for today. Hope you had an amazing start of the week. Much love and empowerment to you all💜👑✊🏿👸🏾


SundayFace: shades of purple 🔮💜

SundayFace: shades of purple 🔮💜

Happy Sunday all!

It is still Sunday at the time I am writing this. I hope you had a great day and that you rested if you were not working/ after church or work or whatever you do on Sundays.


Now, I don’t know if that’s a “don’t” but I sure did it! I went for 2 shades of purple today on my face. Purple and mauve to be exact. I was wearing black and white or I though “why not?!”


I always find it weird to take makeup pictures because I feel like the camera is SOOOOOO close to my face which feels quite weird.

Also, I feel like you can see everything that is wrong with my face- I am working ont hat one. I have changed a few things in my skincare routine (see my Menarche haul post) and I have some new products in my makeup collection that I use: my skin IS getting better by the day so YAY for that.


Mauve smokey attempt


Lips: NYX 


I used 2 NYX products for the lips. Around/ outside I have: liquid suede cream lipstick in the colour Amethyst (10) and, in the middle, I went for the soft matte lip cream in the colour London (04)


A better picture 🙂


Purple is commonly linked to royalty and nobility… what not to like I want to ask!


Have an amazing week ahead all. Be blessed and be empowered 👑💜✊🏿👸🏾
