January Fitness Challenge

Happy Sunday!! Currently about to finish some laundry and cleaning and get my son ready to go back to school tomorrow!! I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend so far. I recently posted about making more commitments and sticking to them this year. One of those things is working out more consistently. Last month I tried doing the 30 day Ab and Squat challenge...again and failed miserably. I haven't been to the gym in I don't know how long and feel myself getting out of shape. I was going through some pictures and found this.

I purchased these fitness DVD's over a year or two ago and I only used them for about a week or so then stopped. Starting tomorrow I will be using these for the rest of the month and taking myself to the gym on my days off. I know it's going to hard and I'll want to give up but I need to just remind myself that I made this commitment and I want to be in better shape. I will give weekly updates on my progress and I encourage some of you that want to get back in shape or have been slacking on getting back to the gym to take this challenge with me. You don't have to run out and get these DVD's but just doing something like walking everyday or going to the gym or fitness class weekly. Let me know if want to join in and we can encourage each other. Wish me luck cause I'm going to need it lol!!

I think I'm the only person that hasn't taken their Christmas tree down yet lol! I'll get to it this week.

It's officially my birthday month and I'm excited!! Thinking of getting another tattoo soon.


  1. Good luck girl! I work out 3-4x a week and can tell you that you NEED to make it a routine thing or it just won't happen. I hate working out but I KNOW that I work out Tues, Thurs, Sat, and Sunday so having a set routine def makes it easier.

    1. Thanks Tanya. That's good to have a set schedule for working out. I'm always all over the place but I'll have to try that.

  2. i didn't want to take my xmas stuff down but i did sunday! i was kinda bummed but i'm ok with it now

    1. That's good, I just don't like the taking down part lol!! Thanks for stopping by Elle!!

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…
