7 Things About Me

1. My favorite color is pink.
2. I was ESPN in college. I cheered for basketball and we had a chance to go to the NCAA tournament. The game was hosted at my school and unfortunately we lost but people saw me on tv!!
3.  I played the Clarinet and was in the marching band in high school.
4. I do not like the taste of coconut.
5. I tried out for the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleading Squad a few years ago, I only made it through one round.
6. I always wanted to be a hair stylist and have my own salon, I used to give all my dolls hair cuts.
7. If I could eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be french fries! I love them so much!!

I'm not sure if I even know 15 bloggers and I believe everyone I know has already been nominated!


  1. I don't like the taste of coconut either. It's the texture I don't like. I love using the oil for beauty related things and for cooking.

    1. I love using Coconut Oil to wash the makeup off my face at night and in my hair. Thanks for reading and stopping by!!

  2. Hey Andrea...I enjoyed reading a little more about you. I also love pink (no surprise there lol) I was also a hairdresser and my goal was once to have my own salon.

    1. I do come across a lot of people who love the color pink! I always wanted to go to cosmetology school but I just never did. Thanks for reading!

  3. Hey Girl! I love learning more about other bloggers. My cousin Nicole is HUGE on cheerleading. She cheered in Jr High, High School, College, and was an an all star team. She is the cheerleading coach for Curry College. Its her life lol. I too played the clarinet but I sucked and gave it up after a couple years. Thanks for sharing Drea! By the way, are you on bloglovin'? If not, you should sign up so that people can follow you on there.

    1. Yea, I'm still itching to cheer again lol! I have Bloglovin' on my phone but not on there. Is it easy to tranfer posts from here to there?

    2. You don't have to transfer anything. All you do is link your blog to your bloglovin account and everytime you publish a new post, it shows up for your readers to see on their main dashboard. I read 90% of the blogs I follow on there. Its really easy. All the new posts for blogs you follow are all in one place and once you read it, it grays or so that you know youve read it.

    3. Oh that sounds easy enough. Thanks, I think I will do that sometime this week!

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…
