The Resolute Beauty Blogger

Resolute Beauty Blogger June 2014

Last month I did a post on my blogging and personal goals. You can find the original post here. +Tanya  from Leopard Lace and Cheesecake asked if I wanted to join in on this post and I agreed! I know they post their results towards the beginning of the month.

Hi Ladies!  Beauty Bloggers Shalunya from Shalunya and Boyet and El from Glossy Glam Blog teamed up to create The Resolute Beauty Blogger. They wanted to do this to not only stay on track with their Beauty Blog Resolutions for 2014 but also to give other beauty bloggers the chance to join in on the action. 

Here are my goals and updates on each:

Blogging Goals:

1. Set a Blogging Schedule: This was one of the first things I did. I was blogging whenever I had a free moment and it just got a little crazy. I now post on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday and it makes it so much easier! I can schedule post ahead of time and just be more organized!

2. Change Up The Style: The blog still needs more work on the design aspect but I have changed a few things. I don't have the monthly themes anymore but still have some of my series like Brown Box Hair Products Reviews and my new on Shopping My Beauty Samples. 

3. Learn More About Blogging: Haven't really dug into this one but will do soon. I've just been reading other blogs in the mean time.

4. Attend a Blogging Event:  I haven't come across one wait I have. I saw a friend mine post about a blogging conference, Blogging While Brown but it was not in the budget this time around. Hopefully I'll get to an event soon.

5. Proof Read a Little Better: I have been working at this. I really take the time and read over my post a few times before posting. I even read it out loud to hear how it sounds. 

6. Get a New Calendar and Book:  I did go out and get a calendar, wish I took a picture of it. I keep my work schedule and what post I will be doing. I didn't get a new blogging book yet. The one I do have is almost full and I will be purchasing one soon. I'll be sure to take pictures next time!!

Personal Goals

1. Figuring Out What I Really Want To Do:  This one is going to take a while. I know things take time and don't happen overnight. I know I will find my way.

2. Wear Makeup More Often: This has been a hit and miss. It really depends when I wake up in the morning and if I did prepare the night before. I don't get a full face on all the time but I do get some makeup on. 

3. Wearing Dresses and Skirts More Often: I have been pretty successful with this one. Besides when I go to church, I have worn a dress or skirt to work once or twice during the week. 

4. Use My BBW Stash More: I've only done it one week this month! This one still needs some work!

5. Be More Prepared and Organized: I have been packing lunches the night before and it makes the morning so much easier!! There have been a few nights that I was just too tired to do so but I have been doing it more. I don't put out my clothes the night before. I try and then I wake up and don't want to wear that and search for something else lol!! 

6. Not To Stress So Much:  I'll admit to having a small meltdown but I've been trying to control myself. I know stress is not good for you. I wish I went to the gym more often because that helps a lot. 

So that was the update on my blogging and personal goals after a month. I feel really good after getting a few of them accomplished and will continue to work more on the rest. Do you have blogging and/or personal goals? Comment below and let me know!!

~** Drea Notes **~

Can't believe the 4th of July weekend is here! Why is summer going by so fast??

I haven't had any Funnel Cake or Cotton Candy yet this Summer!! Those are two of my favorite things to eat every Summer!
Can't believe I have been blogging for a year in August!! My first giveaway will be coming up then!! 


  1. Thanks for joining us Drea! Having a blog schedule is definitely helpful. I think you got some great and realistic goals here. I think looking at your progress each month really helps see how much you have grown not only as a blogger but a person as well. Can't wait to read your updates next month!

    1. Thanks for the invite Tanya! Yes this blogging schedule has made things so much easier!

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…
