A couple of months ago I came across a new LA artist by the name of Chantel. I fell in love the first time I heard this song and saw the video. Perfect summer jam (even thought the summer is coming to an end). Chantel has recently put out a free mixtape titled “Back in the Day”. It’s sooooooooo good. I will do a review on it in the next couple of days. In the meantime, check out her video for “Sending My Love.” I’m digging the LA vibe!
Your hands are always on full display! You must keep them clean, healthy, and beautiful! We all know that nail polish is one of our most noticeable accessories. But what happens to our nails after all that scraping and wiping with alcohol-based nail polish removers and thinners? To put it simply—they get battered and weakened.
Here are some tips to keep your nails healthy and beautiful:
Eat healthy. According to Livestrong.com, by incorporating a healthy diet, your nails will be better in no time! Protein, in particular, helps your nails grow. Make sure to think of your nails when dieting and include lean meats for added protein, or beans and legumes if you’re vegetarian or vegan.
Strengthen your nails. Calcium helps to build stronger nails. Adora Calcium Supplements are made from all-natural, premium milk and dark chocolate and are only 30 calories per disk. According to Adora, two disks as an after-meal snack provide you 100% of your daily calcium with Vitamin D3 for optimal absorption. Treat yourself and your nails to calcium you’ll crave!
Moisturize. According to the Mayo Clinic, when using hand lotion, you should rub the lotion into your fingernails and cuticles to help keep them moisturized and fresh.
Hope these tips have helped! I will be trying out the Adora Calcium Supplements once they arrive in the mail. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on the outcome.

Blige, Eve), N.O.R.E., KURUPT, Jae Millz, French Montana, Max B, and Royce Da 59. Devyn has re-invented herself and has been able to develop an eccentric new generation mix of R&B, Pop, and Hip Hop genres. Her new style signifies edgy, sexy with attitude, driven and loud, which has evolved into Devyn Rose. “It’s definitely a busy and exciting time for me, I’ve been in the studio experimenting with new sounds and new ideas. Bringing joy and unique music that connects with listeners is extremely important to me as an artist and I can’t wait to share this with everyone” Devyn stated.
Devyn continues to progress with each record, breaking new boundaries in her style and continues to mature in her writing. Devyn’s new body of work is without a doubt the singer’s crowning accomplishment to date.
Although the official release date is still TBD, Devyn is giving fans a preview of “PIECES”, the lead single off her forthcoming EP, available for free download viawww.devynrose.com.
What do you all think of Devyn Rose?! I’m feeling her new single and I look forward to hearing more from Miss Rose!
