Some of you were asking what I was wearing on my lips in this week’s HGTV video, and wouldn’t you mind-reader readers know, I was already prepping a post to share this gem of a lip stain with you. A couple of weeks ago I picked up this Revlon Just Bitten lip stain in Passion, and was so over the moon for it, I ran right out and picked it up in Cherish. I wore in this week’s video, I wore it to my chiropractor’s office, I wore it to a rehearsal dinner. To test it’s diversity on skin tone, one of my best friends, who happens to be an African American drag queen called $himmy Hendrix, also tried it on… and it shined like RuPaul’s pearly whites. There is nothing this lip stain won’t do except get your weave stuck to your face, which, to me, is the highest of recommendations.

What are some of the ways you’re celebrating Black History month? We are always trying to find ways we can walk the walk, not just in February but all year long. Some ideas; supporting black-owned businesses, supporting charities that empower communities of color, reading books by authors of color, exposing ourselves to art, films, stories, podcasts, web series, and varying works by black people. We can also look and learn about so many hidden figures who’ve built this beautiful country. I’d love to hear other ideas in the comments. One not-so-hidden figure to learn from is the glass-ceiling-breaker Shirley Chisholm whom I imagine would be very proud that her legacy has led to so many female candidates and leaders today. “Shirley Chisholm had long been known for breaking barriers. Four years before, she’d become the first black U.S. Congresswoman in history as a Representative of her New York district. When she launched her primary campaign in January of ‘72, she became the first black person to seek the presidential nomination from one of the two major parties (the first woman was Margaret Chase Smith, who sought the Republican nomination in 1964). Her slogan was: “Unbought and Unbossed.” – @history
