Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!! Can't believe its 2014 already! With this new year, a lot of new things will be coming. I was talking to my cousin before the new year and he is helping me with my blog. He was asking me about the name and my audience and what I wanted to get out of this. It really made me think about it. I started this blog because honestly, it was something I really wanted to try and say that I did in my life. I have been really geting into watching YouTube and reading other blogs and thought I would challenge myself. I felt like I needed to do something that was just about myself. I just thought of the name off the top of my head but it's not really fitting now that I think about. At first, the purpose was to be about getting back to yourself after having a child but never really got into that. I'm just an enthuist on beauty and makeup products and just wanted to talk about them and share my reviews on them. And this name now that I'm looking at is too long and just not what I'm blogging about now. So my name and URL will be changing very soon to really fit me and my platform.

Its just crazy how poeple can really make you think about things and see what you are really trying to do. I really want this blog to be successful and grow. I gave myself a challenge and I want to step up to the plate and really put my all into this. My cousin also made me notice that I'm not really putting enough of myself on here, I just talk about my products, do my reviews and videos but what about myself? My readers and hopefully I get some followers soon should know about the blogger that is posting this. I honestly hide behind a lot and really don't show my true self. I'm afraid of other people's opinions about me. I just need to take a leap of faith and just really start coming from behind my mask. I want my readers and followers to be able to relate to me.

So a lot of changes will be happening soon and I hope you guys have been enjoying my blog so far! Stay tuned for my January series and more exciting, new things!


  1. You are an amazing beautiful woman, we would love to see you more. I know it can feel awkward but just go for it. You know, I'll be here as your own little personal cheering section!

    1. I really appreciate your kind words and encouragment! It really means a lot!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

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.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh!

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.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
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. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
