On a personal note.....

I looked at the calendar and realized it is exactly a week until I turn 30!! I'm starting to feel a little better about leaving my 20's but I'm trying to savor every last moment of them! I had some really great times in my 20's but I honestly wish that my 10 Year High School reunion happened. I graduated in 2002 and back then I was thinking where I would be in 10 years. I thought it would be so cool to see how everyone turned out in 10 years. I got excited as it was starting to come up on the 10 year mark. I often joked that I just wanted to go so I could laugh at those who didn't really like me in high school. Who was I to think that I would be better off than others? When it became 2012,  I was ready, I was trying to figure how I was going to wear my hair, what I was going to wear, who I was going to see and it got cancelled. Not enough people purchased tickets. I was waiting for enough money to afford them. I was working at the time but I was paying for daycare, diapers, wipes, food, bills and so on. So then some people in my class got together and tried to get the reunion together and at that time, I was let go from my job and searching but I really wanted to go. Once again, no one was buying tickets and it was cancelled. My boyfriend was saying that social media kinda ruins things like that. You can see what everyone is up to on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It's sad that we kinda don't have person to person interaction as much anymore. Everyone always has a phone, computer or tablet to their face. I was kinda disappointed we couldn't get it together but honestly, I was afraid to go. In high school, I had a small group of "friends" and people really didn't like me too much. I was in the band and a cheerleader. And I honest did run my mouth too much and talk about people. I tried to be something I wasn't. I honestly didn't think that anyone would want to see me there anyway. Plus, I wasn't where I thought I would be career wise and just not happy with my life at the time in general. So I thought people would be laughing at me...still. It always got to me when I would here that someone didn't like me, someone was talking about me, there were rumors about me. I thought I was a nice person and fun to be around. But I'm starting to come from behind what I've been hiding behind and starting to realize who I really am. I hope that we can have some kind of reunion in the near future.


  1. I'm sorry to hear your HS reunion got cancelled, I have to agree with your bf too Social Media basically ruins the thrill of how is everybody now. In my news feed they don't miss a day to post what they had for lunch or what they did over the weekend. I have to admit I used to be like that, I would post everything on my online profiles until I realized how I am making it easy for identity thieves to get info about me! So now if my friends do really want to know about me, we need to meet for lunch or coffee to catch up! Advance Happy Birthday girl and welcome to the club =) it's not that bad but yeh I went thru a phase like yours too as I look back in my 20's *sigh* those were the days huh?!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jackie! Thanks for the early birthday wishes. The more I think about it, it's not that bad because I still look so young lol! It is sad to not have a lot of personal interaction anymore.

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.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
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!

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…
