Started with a thought.......

So I was just siting at home, folding clothes and cleaning (my normal on days off) and had a thought. All these makeup and hair products that I have been trying out, YouTube videos I've been watching, why not blog about it! I'm just getting back into really wearing makeup after having my son two years ago. No one ever really taught me how to properly apply makeup, I kinda just picked up things from friends, then eventually found the MAC counter and now the power of Social Media. I kinda wish that I was taught how but I've enjoyed learning the way I have. I also never really knew what products were the best, worst, and so on. In high school it was all about what I could afford, in college, one of my best friends told me about MAC and I was hooked ever since. Now from watching MUAs on YouTube and through Beautylish, I've learned there are so many other products out there. I just never knew about them until about a couple years ago. Now, I'm obsessed with trying out every and any product I can get my hands on.
On my 24th birthday, I was at the salon getting my hair done and decided after that, I was going to stop relaxing my hair. I loved wearing my hair straight, how it felt and looked but I didn't know how much damage I was causing it. My hair would only grow to a certain length then start breaking off. I have cut my hair short several times to see if it would grow really long and not shed so much. Going to the salon and getting it relaxed, wash, curled, colored was getting so expensive. So I started just going to the Dominican salons and having them blow my hair out. I noticed that it was growing, looking healthier and not as damaged. After a few years, I started to notice the natural hair movement starting to become big. I was scared on how my hair would act if I stopped straightening it or how I would wear it, what to use and so on. Thank goodness for social media, I never would of know all that I'm learning now about my natural hair. I stopped going to the salon a few months ago and I'm enjoying my natural hair journey.
I just want a place to come and talk about products I'm trying, how my hair journey is going and so on. Most of the time, I'm talking to a two year old and most moms know how that is. Just hope to really learn more along the way and hope who ever reads this does too. Enjoy!

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
