Hey guys! I have been recently nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the wonderful Keisha from The Chrysalis Gals!! Thank you so much!!

Ok so here are the rules:

  • You must answer all eleven questions given by the person who nominated you
  • You must nominate eleven of your favourite blogs and give them eleven of your own questions to answer
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • Finally...Make sure that the bloggers you have nominated know, by leaving them a message.

Questions asked by Keisha:
Why did you start blogging?

The idea just popped into my head one day to have an outlet to talk about all the beauty products that I love, get from beauty subscriptions and that I buy a lot. I've been reading other blogs and wanted to give it a try and challenge myself.

What advice would you give to a newbie blogger?

Don't give up. I started a blog before this one and I gave up on it too easy because no one was reading it and I got a little frustrated. It takes time to gain followers and readers and to be successful at it. You should know the purpose and platform of your blog and build from there.

In three words, how would you describe yourself?

The three words I would use to describe myself are determined, caring and unique.

Who or what inspires you?

My son inspires me. I have another person that I'm responsible for and I want to succeed and be successful. He gives me inspiration to really push and make things better for our family.

If you could have any dream career in the world, what would it be?

Hmmmm.... I would love to have my own dance/cheerleading company. I would be the owner/teacher of a few classes. We would offer all genres of dance for all ages and have dance and cheerleading competition squads.

What makeup/beauty item would you never leave home without?

I can't leave anywhere with some kind of lip product. It doesn't matter if its gloss, lip balm, lipstick.

If I was to take a peek inside your purse, what would I find?

Oh boy, I carry a lot of things in my purse. I have my wallet of course, notebook for my blogging ideas, makeup bag( that has lip balm, concealer, small pallet, mascara, lip gloss,mirror), gum, notebook with my things to do list, some random toys my son puts in there sometimes, tampons, mints, aspirin, cell phone and snacks.
Which makeup brand is you absolute favourite and why?

Even though I'm exploring other brands, I still love MAC. It was the first brand I was introduced to and I just love the quality you get from the products, plus they have foundation that matches me perfectly.
Bold lipstick or neutral?
Definitely bold lipstick!!
What is your shoe preference…flats, wedge or Stiletto?

My preference would be stilettos. I love when I find comfortable ones!!

What would be your dream vacation? 

My dream vacation would be to Italy. I've never been on side of the world and I would love to experience real Italian food!

I know a lot of you have been nominated already and since I don't have a big following now, anyone that would like to answer my questions is more than welcome to!!

If you could only use three makeup items for the rest of your life, what would they be?

If you could create a cosmetic line, what would be the name of it and what would you sell?

Who is your beauty icon?

If you could have any celebrity's closet, who would you choose?

What inspired you to start blogging?

What is your favorite fashion designer?

What advise would you give to a new blogger?

What is your favorite color?

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

If someone told you I would pay you 1 million dollars tax free to wear the same outfit everyday for a year, would you do it?

If it could only be three season year round, which three would you choose?



  1. I enjoyed reading your answers!!! I'm a stilletto gal also...I love high heels!
    I also agree with your answer to the second question...I often thought of giving up also, but patience and perserverance is key!
    Thanks so much for paticipating!

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! 

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…
