Taking a break.......

On Tuesday I did mention that I had some exciting news to share. I have been working part time for a while and searching like crazy for full time work. I was starting to get a little frustrated but never gave up. Well a full time opportunity came up at my current job and I am now full time status!!! I was just so overjoyed and thankful. I will have a more stable income, I can go back to school and start to make some moves. Then I started to get a little overwhelmed. How was I going to juggle being a full-time working mom, grad student, blogger and balance everything else. It has been a while since I had a full time schedule and based my blogging schedule around my days off during the week. I start my full time hours next week and just need to take a small break away from Naturalle Drea. I really didn't want to because I love this so much but I need to see how to handle everything. I will most likely change my blogging schedule around. Thank you to those who have been encouraging to me and so supportive. I will be back soon, don't think I can stay away for too long.

  1. Congrats girl! That is awesome. I don't have any kids but I do work full time, am married, have a dog, and other things going on in my life. If you really love blogging, once you get settled into your job, you will find a way to work it into your schedule. Just don't feel that you HAVE to post 3x a week etc..Good Luck and talk to you soon!

  8. Congratulations, Drea! Full-time work is hard to come by these days and it really doesn't matter what your educational background looks like or what your experience is in. It's just the dismal state of our current job market. But, thankfully you found something. I imagine that juggling full-time work, grad school (been there, done that and never going back!) and mommyhood will be tough, so I'm wishing you lots of rest. Keep up your energy! :))

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.



Eyes

(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
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. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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 CHECKED OUT MY LATEST SKINCARE REVIEW??

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…
