Sabrina and Idris Elba are national treasures that should be protected at all costs.

The couple recently announced that they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and confirmed the self-quarantine hype. If you aren't on a mandated self-lockdown by now, you probably should be, and Sabrina has the perfect skincare tutorial to get you through without losing your sanity.

In a recent episode of ELLE UK's "Wake Up With Me", Sabrina opened up about the morning routine that helps her slay the day, and according to her, it always starts by checking in with her mom and and her ridiculously delicious husband:

"Usually, my husband's here but I'm traveling and he's working and we would have my 'us time'. That's probably the first thing I do every morning with him. Just check-in, make sure we're good and then we can carry on about our days and it's just a nice way to start."

Along with QT with loved ones, Sabrina says that her plasma-infused moisturizer is the key to getting herself all the way together for the day ahead:

"Barbara Strum can make a face cream using your plasma. So she takes a bit of blood, mixes it around, separates the plasma, makes it into her face cream. Kind of sounds gross, but it works really well and it's made just for you."

Yves Saint Laurent Pure Shots Y Shape Firming Serum 


"I love starting with this serum. When I break out, I tend to get dark spots for a long time, so I make sure to use this after every wash. I'm guilty of mixing two serums, as well. I'm getting older now, so the more the better, and this is from YSL."

Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara 


"Let's move on to a bit of mascara and we're done. Fenty, who doesn't love this brand? Her new mascara is phenom. I do have lash extensions, but I like to put a little bit on top. I know they tell you you shouldn't, but a little mascara never hurt anyone."

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember.

That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word.

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
