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!

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there.
