On a personal note.....

Happy Sunday loves!! Anyone having a Superbowl party or going to one? I will be watching the game but not going to a party. I haven't done a post in this series in a while and just want to talk to you guys. It seems like a light finally went off in my head and I got it. really pushed myself and workout out for a whole month and it felt great. I'm starting to see some great changes with my body and I'm going to continue to keep going. I feel so determined and motivated now and wondered what happened. I guess I wasn't ready for what is about to come in my life. I've learned to stop dwelling in the past and stop wondering what should of happened and what could of happened. I'm looking forward and not turning back anymore. I've learned to stop looking at what other people have that I don't, it's just not my time to have it. I know things I really want in life will come when I'm ready for it. I'm really working on my resume, applying for jobs like crazy and just waiting to hear "You got the job". I know it is coming soon. I made the decision to go back to school and get my masters and figuring out what career path is right for me. I just feel like I've been changing so much and I never gave up. Things may seem so crazy in this world and in life but you should always keep going and not give up. Never give up on your dreams, always go for what you want. I'm so thankful for those who believe in me and always support everything I do. My cousin gave me a camera he was no longer using so I can record better videos and my boyfriend got me tripod for the camera. I have found so much research on how to make this blog better and I want to succeed at blogging. The other day, another blog called Brown Girl Bloggers started following me on Twitter and when I went to their site, I was on there all day. They had so much information and things I never knew about. I learned so much and registered to be apart of their community. I took a chance and started putting some of my videos on You Tube and now have 21 subscribers. I just want to encourage you to just keep moving towards your goals and never give up. Things always get better in life, you just have to have faith and believe in yourself. Hope you have a great week, enjoy the Superbowl and see you Tuesday!!!

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…
