On a personal note.....

I think I have embraced my new age of 30 now, I'm over the initial fear I had about leaving my 20's. But I'm still like trying to figure out my life. I had to stop by the store on day and when I got back in the car, I just broke down. Things were just going all kinds of crazy that week. My current employer is making one too many changes and it affects my position. Plus I'm only part time for now and this job market is crazy, it's so hard trying to find something, let alone get into an interview. And I just want to be able to support my family and be stable. I'm grateful for having a roof over my head, even though I'm still at home, I have a job and clothes on my back. I've been struggling to learn patience. I'm always trying to rush everything and I need to let go of the wheel because I am not in control. Things happen for a reason and I know that things will get better, I will get where I need to be, but not on my time. I just have to keep pushing and keep myself motivated that I can cross the finish line and overcome this setback!

One year, I will get to New York Fashion Week!
I will be starting the squat challenge again, I will finish it lol!
I have no problems leaving the house with no makeup on!


  1. Set backs are what makes us stronger as we persevere through them. I always remember a quote: "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice that you have."
    Keep pushing on will all be worth it. (I give myself this same pep talk all the time when things become a little unbearable)

    Have a wonderful day xo

    1. Thank you so much for the encouragement! I really appreciate it! That is a good quote to know and go by!

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.

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…
