So Fresh and So Clean – Why I Use Noxzema In Summer AND Winter http://www.afrobella.com/2015/12/22/noxzema-review/ http://www.afrobella.com/2015/12/22/noxzema-review/#comments Tue, 22 Dec 2015 12:50:14 +0000 http://www.afrobella.com/?p=14001 Bellas, as you know by now, I love a beauty brand with a heritage.

You Deserve — The Dyson Humidifier http://www.afrobella.com/2015/11/24/dyson-humidifier/ http://www.afrobella.com/2015/11/24/dyson-humidifier/#comments Tue, 24 Nov 2015 16:16:47 +0000 http://www.afrobella.com/?p=13852 I grew up in Trinidad and lived in Miami for more than a decade.
