On a personal note...Father's Day

Dad is always that one man that will always be in your life. Other men come and go but he is there in your life forever. My dad is another person who had a lot of influence over me and taught me a lot of things. It was crazy when I started to get an allowance, he had me tracking my finances. I'm thinking "What do I need this for? All I buy is candy and barbie stuff!!" But it was a valuable lesson I needed to learn and I'm grateful for that. I knew how to put money away to save and track how much I was spending. I was able to save over $4000 for my first car which I couldn't believe that I did. He was always reading to me and teaching me things about life and how to survive in the real world. I can be shy sometimes but I remember my dad would always send me into the fast food restaurant to order our food. I used to hate going inside but it taught me how to talk to people and not be so shy. I didn't understand why at that time but I do now. I guess that's the thing with parents. They teach you things they know you will need in life. They know you won't understand it at first but know you will need it in life. My dad really stressed the importance of a good education and to strive for success. He wanted me to successful and great at whatever I was destined to do in life. He was always there for support and someone to talk to. He also taught me that I needed to be independent and stand on my own but if I needed help, not be afraid to ask for it. He stressed the importance of just always learning new things and challenging yourself. My dad loves being a grandfather, its a new role he has taken on. My son has another male figure to look up to because I always admired my dad. He always worked hard to provide for his family and be there. I thank my dad for all the lessons he has taught me, I'm still learning some of them but I'm grateful for the knowledge I have.

Another father that is special is my boyfriend. He has taken this father role and ran with it. I love watching him interact with our son. My son is always talking about daddy and loves guy time. He is setting such a good example for our son and I'm glad that he is in our life. I couldn't of asked for a better father for my child. I know when we decide to have more, they are going to love him just like he is so loved now. We both stepped into parenthood not knowing what to expect and we are doing a really good job. They do say that boys are Mommas boys but I think he's Daddy's Boy more. Daddy is his best friend and I'm just Mommy lol!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!! Hope you enjoy your day!!

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!

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…
