On a personal note....

Happy Sunday!! I'm currently watching my team right now and hoping they win today. I was mapping out posts for this month and just wanted to do a personal one today. There has been so much going on lately and I'm proud of myself that I keep moving and pushing. I just felt like somewhere I lost my drive and focus. I was feeling a bit lost about my career path and what I wanted to do and it scared me a bit. For one, my age and worried about where to start. I know what I love so much and what I hate doing. It's just a matter of narrowing it down. I had a thought of going back to school for journalism. I was thinking of expanding myself to writing beauty related articles for magazines and improving how I write on this blog. Then I was thinking hard about going back for my masters. Would it make me more marketable to companies? Would it better my carrer path? But the thought of doing homework again and writing papers made me stand off a bit. The job market now is so hard, I'm just getting frustrated with putting in hundreds of applications and hearing nothing back. I know I have to stand out to someone, that they would see the potential I have. I know I'm a great team worker and I get my work done. It's just a lot going on in my head but I'm happy for not giving up and being so patient with life. I know that job is coming soon, that opportunity will present itself. I'm so thankful for learning to be more patient and knowing things will be okay. I know I won't be in this runt for long. I also have been looking for blogging groups and in New Jersey and Philadelphia area and haven't found a thing. Most of what I have found is no longer active. I just want to network and get myself out there. I want to expand and grow. I love the blogging world and so grateful for sticking to this because I really love it. Hopefully I come across something or I should just start something myself. 

Hope you guys enjoy the rest of the weekend and see everyone Tuesday!!


  1. I understand the whole going back to school thing. The thing that really sucks is that I work with people who don't have their bachelors degree (and I do) and we make about the same money. Also, there are people that don't have a degree and make way more than that is why I decided to not waste my time or money getting my masters unless I am in a job where they will pay me to go back and get it,

    1. I know that feeling, I was in a job like that where managers didn't even have a degree and I did. I work with people now who have or working and masters and its making me think. Thanks for reading Tanya!

  2. don't ever give up love. it may take time, but that opportunity is out there! If this is something you really want to do, it will come =) Networking as I have learned is hard, I am still learning as I meet new people through this blogging journey. We may not have PhD's or MBA's but we do know how to use social media and how to social network, and use that to your advantage! A lot of these companies are still learning about it and as bloggers, we are great examples of social media influencers.

    1. Thanks Jackie!! I'm still trying to network and get myself out there as much as I can. Social Media is really big now and it is at our advantage!

  3. Never give up on your dreams! I think at some point in life everyone feels this way. I know I have! Even though I have a B.A. in Psychology, I'm not currently pursuing it. I've been thinking about going to grad school soon, but until then I make the most out of what life has to offer. I know that they're so many wonderful possibilities out there. Things just take time and I think you're great at writing on your blog! Good luck with all your future endeavors Andrea!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Pilar!!

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!

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…
