Hey everyone! This year, Dinechka Makeup LLC has chosen to raise funds for NAMI MC (National Alliance on Mental Illness), a non-profit organization that I have known for a few years now. I think raising awareness of mental illness is so important, and would like to show the support that I can. The goal I have set for our team is $1,000 – thank you so much for contributing! All donations are tax deductible since NAMI MC is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Fundraising Goal


Their mission statement: NAMI MC provides comprehensive support, education, advocacy, and public awareness to promote recovery and so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.

Hello everyone! It’s that time of year again! For this spring’s charity event, I have decided to team up with a local non-profit organization in DC called City Blossoms! City Blossoms works with community-based organizations, neighborhood groups, and schools to create outdoor spaces where children and youth can use their creativity, intellect, and energy to grow and maintain fantastic and functioning gardens. You can visit to learn more about this fabulous group.

On Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10am-1pm, we’ll be volunteering at Cardozo Education Campus Garden, located at 1200 Clifton St NW, Washington, DC 20009, to help prepare the gardens for a season full of delicious fruits and vegetables! Dress casually and be ready to get your hands dirty! Email me at: or text 240-479-9745 to RSVP!

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

I decided I’d review the #imPRESSmanicure nails I received. They were very easy to apply, and even though the design is a bit high-school-esque, I received a ton of compliments today. I’d definitely get these in French! They stuck on for days, even through me going through so many paper files, etc.
