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!

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.

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…
