Fenty Beauty, Rihanna's make-up line, has been named one of Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2017. The products join other honorees such as the Nintendo Switch, Tesla Model 3, and fidget spinners.
"I never could have anticipated the emotional connection that women are having with the products and the brand as a whole," Rihanna told the publication. "Some are finding their shade of foundation for the first time, getting emotional at the counter. That’s something I will never get over.”
And to those Fenty fans who are currently wondering how she can possibly top what she's already done, Rihanna revealed that even better things are in store. "Some of my favorite products aren’t even out yet," she said, when asked about her favorite Fenty invention.
"The options are pretty much unlimited in the world of beauty, and I love challenges, so I’m going to continue to have fun and push the boundaries in this industry."

Listen... When people sleep on you, let them rest. When people walk away from you, LET THEM WALK. Stop begging for people’s time, energy, love, attention, understanding, honesty, forgiveness. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who left. If they are no longer with you in your walk, it’s no accident. Let it go 🤝
s e l f - c a r e f r i d a y. Is that even a thing? Um, YES! Because I made it my thing. Let’s be real, self- care Sundays are awesome in theory but when you have kids, Sundays are rarely your own.
As a solopreneur wearing ALL the hats, Monday-Thursdays are my go-hard days. I get up at 5:30am to steal an hour before the kids wake and I work until it’s time to take them to practices, make dinner, help with homework, get them ready for bed, etc.
Fridays they have early release from school which means my day ends by 12pm. So instead of working, I spend from 8-12 caring for ME; whether that be a lazy morning facial/hair treatment (or both...I’m a multi-tasker!), my indulgent 90 minute yoga class, getting my nails done or going to breakfast with a friend, I dedicate my Friday mornings to doing whatever the hell I want!
It’s the perfect segue from a long week of hustling to a weekend filled with my family’s organized chaos (don’t misunderstand—I wouldn’t trade our chaos for the world🖤). Issa Friday reset. It allows me to go into my weekend rejuvenated because, let’s be clear, when you are a parent, “the weekend turn-up” takes on a whole new meaning!

Part I Synopsis: Who says that women have to choose between love and their success? In the 21st century, can’t women have it all?
Jade, an ambitious marketing exec, knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. But after many years of avoiding monogamy and commitment, she finds herself craving more than just mindless sex. Now, the self-proclaimed heartbreaker is ready for love. Her only challenge: she hasn’t quite met anyone that rocks her world. That is until she meets Max…
Max is mysterious, charming, and sexy. The moment he and Jade lock eyes - she’s hooked. But her draw to him scares her, awakening some nightmares that she’d like to forget. She worries if she can truly have it all.
