The first finish the story was a big hit so here's a second one...
You're driving on a country road. It is late at night and you're far from home. You realize, as you check your mirrors, there is a man you do not know, hiding on the floor of your back seat...

Hey y'all! I know a lot of you have probably been wondering where I've been or why I haven't been posting as much as I used to. I started off the year pretty well, stats were up and collaboration emails were pouring in... and then I disappeared.
So around the end of February I became extremely busy. I was finishing up my Masters, interning at a local pregnancy center, and working. Whenever I would actually try to blog something, I never liked it enough to actually post it. After a while I just felt completely uninspired and neglected the blog all together. Recently, I thought about how my blog used to be... during its earlier years and how much fun it was. I posted random things that I enjoyed and it didn't feel like a chore. I took the time to reflect on why I started this blog in the first place, back in 2012. I started this blog because I wanted my own little section on the internet. I wanted a platform where I could be creative and post whatever I wanted. If you know me, then you would know that I have always loved taking pictures and making videos. I may not be a professional but they are my hobbies. This blog was created as an outlet for me to share not only my home life but my hobbies, inspirations, music tastes, fashion, and so much more. Looking back, I haven't been doing much of that. What I am saying is that I am reverting the blog back to its original form. All original content will be coming back including more! I'm bringing back POTW (pictures of the week) posts which were a fan favorite, as well as funny clips, music, favorite youtubers, and more. It's time to make the blog fun again. I am also well aware that Miracle's Hottie of the Week posts are missed... I may bring that back as well but I'm still debating on it. Anyway, itsmiraclewhip.com is here to stay and I will be uploading more frequently. Yall know by now I can't keep a schedule so check back daily for new music, videos, and pictures. Don't worry, I will still have a ton of food and drink posts as well.
I know there are a few kids who like being posted on the blog so if anyone wants to be featured send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also fan pictures, personal requests, and business inquiries should send emails at email@example.com.
Thank you for sticking around with me and being loyal readers. Cheers to a lit and exciting blog.
Hey everyone! I'm kicking off my summer content by sharing my favorite go-to makeup products. I have only been wearing makeup for a little while so I'm pretty new to it. I must say I am getting pretty good at applying it and finding what works for me.

I'm loving Rihanna's Mimosa Sunrise/Sangria Sunset Freestyle Highlighter. She has done an amazing job creating products that look amazing on ALL skin tones. Usually women of color are an after thought for a lot of makeup brands so it's nice to see a line dedicated to everyone. I also really love her Universal Lip Luminizer. It's a basic lip gloss that looks great on anyone. All of her products are good, I recommend checking them out.
My secret to fleeky eyebrows is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz with Wet n Wild's Mega Clear on top. OMG. Ever since I've been doing this, my brows haven't been the same. They look amazing everytime!!!
The key to amazing lashes would be Tarte's Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara. This mascara will bring your lashes to life with just one coat and I LOVE it!
Kat Von D's 10th Anniversary Metal Crush Highlighter is amazing... HOWEVER...!!!!! It absolutely sucks as an actual highlighter (in my opinion). It is very messy and gets everywhere. One swipe on your cheek and it'll end up all over your face. It's so pretty that I didn't want to take it back so instead I decided to use it as body glitter, which is perfect for this time of year. It looks amazing on my shoulders and décolleté.
Makeup Forever makes some amazing blushes. In my Sephora, I haven't be able to locate the names of these blushes so I'm not sure what this one is called. It's a burnt orange looking color that looks amazing on my skin tone.
I am a BIG fan of Fresh Beauty. I'm currently using a few of their skincare products and I love them. This lip treatment by them is amazing. It's a simple lip balm with a light tint of pink. This product will keep your lips moisturized for hours.
Mary Kay CC Cream is fantastic. This formula is amazing for my skin type which is DRYYYYY and it matches my skin perfectly. I would recommend checking it out if you're not a foundation wearer or just looking for something with light coverage.
These are my favorite go-to makeup products. I don't wear makeup everyday but when I do, it is guaranteed that I'm wearing these products.
Don't forget to share your favorite makeup products in the comments below!
Yesterday I graduated with my Masters in Pastoral Counseling/Marriage and Family Counseling. It was a very cold and rainy day but I couldn't miss it!
This was Liberty's 45th commencement. The class of 2018 was Liberty's largest in history with over 20,000 graduates. Not only did we have the largest class but we had the largest crowd they've ever had with 40,000 people.
Former President Jimmy Carter was the guest speaker.
I'm so excited to finally be apart of the mastersclub. Hooray!!!
With spring weddings and prom approaching, looking for a dress may become overwhelming and stressful. Thanks to Dresshopau, you can find the dress of your dreams from the comfort of your own home. Dresshopau is an international supplier that offers a variety of dresses from wedding dresses (Junior Bridesmaid Dresses, Mother of the Bride Dresses, Flower Girl Dresses) to prom and cocktail dresses. They also provide a variety of sizes ranging from a size 2 to plus sizes.
I'm going to show you all a few of my favorite dresses from the sight:
This pink sequined dress is perfect for prom or any extra special occasion. I love the classic style that it provides at the top as well as the attention grabber at the bottom. You will turn heads in this dress.
This dress is super sexy and perfect for an extremely fancy date night out. This color would look perfect on anybody and you would for sure grab the attention of others. This dress would actually be great for Valentine's day, which is coming up soon!
Valentine's day will be here before we know it; and ladies, we all know the struggle is real when you don't know what look you're going for. Over the next few days I will be showing you three look ideas: Cutesy, Edgy, and Super Hot. Today, I will be giving you some ideas on how to create a "cutesy" valentine look. This look is perfect for Galentine's day (a day with girlfriends) or a date with friends. The "cutesy" look is muted and soft, and it incorporates a lot of pinks and whites.
To create this look I picked this dress from Shays Shoe Haven. Shays Shoe Haven is the perfect place to find well made pieces at affordable prices. Shays Shoe Haven is currently having a 50% off sale on all clothing items! This is the perfect opportunity for you ladies to snatch up your Valentine's day outfit. Request to be a friend on FB so you can receive information on flash sales and other secret deals. Shays Shoe Haven ships as well! Just send a message if you're interested in an item! https://www.facebook.com/shays.shoehaven
I also paired this look with faux pearl earrings. I purchased mine from Claire's but you can find them anywhere. I know a lot of people don't like the look of pearls but they are so darn cute to me.
I also kept my hair straight and simple with minimum makeup. Mascara, blush, and lip gloss is all you need ladies (for this look anyway).
For an extra fun touch, I added a pink puff handband that I purchased from Forever 21 for less than $5.
And there you have it. Simple but cute and perfect for Valentine's day.

Puzzles are beneficial to everyone, no matter what age they are. For children, puzzles are a learning tool that increases their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills. For adults, puzzles keep the brain active thus decreasing the chances of Alzheimers and Dementia. Puzzles are also helpful when it comes to increasing a person's IQ as well as their overall mood. (Any kind of puzzle is good for you whether jigsaw, crossword, or word-search) For your own health, try incorporating puzzles into your daily routine. Did I mention, puzzles are also great for decreasing anxiety and stress? I just completed the puzzle below in 2 minutes and 56 seconds. Solve it and leave your time in the comments below. I want to see who can beat me! Also let me know if you enjoy solving puzzles.
Today, I am going to share my most embarrassing moment. I tend to get embarrassed pretty easily, so this is just one of many embarrassing moments for me.
I get embarrassed over the smallest things... and don't even get me started on second-hand embarrassment! If something embarrassing (or awkward) happens to someone else, I am embarrassed for them (whether they are embarrassed or not)!!! For me, second-hand embarrassment is TOO REAL!
So let me tell you about my most embarrassing moment. It all started when I was a newbie on campus. It was only my first week at Virginia State University. Literally, I think this situation happened either my first or second day there. I was looking SO FAB, because... come on! The first week at any school is your time to shine. You gotta pull out your best shoes, that new outfit you picked out, and have your hair laid and slayed....

"I love you," she whispered into her pink cell phone. Nothing but music and the rustle of paper returned what she thought was an open and honest expression. "Did you hear me?" she paused. "I said I love you."
It's the start of a brand new year and I know everyone is on their health kick again, which means... more workouts!! There is nothing worse than working out to either "elevator" music or no music all. I remember in school, P.E teachers would make us workout with no music and it would be TORTURE. I didn't want to do anything! Having music during a workout is uplifting and motivating, especially when the beat is nice.
When I workout, I listen to a little bit of everything; rap, hiphop, pop, EDM and trap (fast or slow). Today I'm sharing just a few songs that I listen to when I'm working out. These songs are PERFECT for exercises such as running or cycling. (I like a lot of older songs if you couldn't tell.) What's your favorite workout song?
I am more determined now than ever to make this the best blog on earth.
We know how I am with blog schedules... smh... but I'm going to try it one more time. I will be posting new content EVERY MONDAY. THURSDAY. AND SATURDAY. I will also be posting content that has been requested or suggested. I've had a lot of people tell me last year that they loved my recipes, so look out for more of those! Also, I've been getting a lot of requests for fashion posts as well as hauls. I'm going to try my best to put out some great fashion content. If there is anything else you guys want to see, drop me a comment below. What did y'all do for new years? Did you turn up or stay in the house like I did? And who's excited for new content?! I know I am! Share the blog with your friends and family and come back on Thursday for a new post.
