On a personal note.....Birthday Edition

Well, its past midnight and officially my birthday. I'm not 30 until 11:11am according to my mom, lol! I was so scared at the thought of turning 30 and leaving my 20s. I had some really great times in my 20s. I got to experience the college life and meet all kinds of new and interesting people, been out in the real world working and trying to find my way, became a mom and just experienced a lot out there. I don't like that fact of getting older but things can only get better hopefully from here. Plus, I still look so young so I can get away with not looking older anyway lol. But I'm just happy to see 30 and have what I do have in my life. I know that I really need to get it together and push to get to where I thought I would be at 30. I believe that I have grown up a lot and have been learning from all the mistakes I've been making. I think I know better about most situations and just have more sense. I hope 30 brings new and exciting things into my life and just continue to grow and learn about life.


  1. Happy birthday pretty!
    You don't look like you just hit all!
    Best wishes, hugs!

  2. These milestone birthdays seem so difficult. But as a woman that has more than a decade on you, I can tell you that it is all what you make it. Women in their 30-40s are more self assured. We know what we want and how to get it. We are done playing foolish games that seem to be so popular with younger women and we don't need to take other women down to feel empowered. You are beautifully, gloriously you! Embrace your 30s for all they are worth. I really enjoyed my 30s and I am sure you will love yours as well. Happy birthday doll. I hope it's a grand one!

    1. Thank you so much Shalunya! I'm feeling much better about being 30 now, things can only get better from here!

  3. Hope you had a fabulous birthday! You certainly don't look a day past 25. Plus age is just a number. You're as old as how you feel. Xo

    1. Thanks Rhondine, I did have a great birthday.

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.


(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! 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! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

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…
