Homemade Decadence Review

I know I'm not the only one who is so over Winter. I hope this storm is the last one!!! Happy Thursday!! This post is going to be on the December Book choice from the Birchblogger Book Club. I was so excited to get a cookbook this time. I love cooking and this book was right up my alley. Let's get into Homemade Decadence by Joy Wilson.

I was literally drooling while flipping through the pages of this book. There are so many recipes for breakfast foods, drinks, cakes, pies and even ice cream!! I got so excited as I was deciding what to make. This is Joy Wilson's second cookbook and I just love it so much!! She is a self taught baker who became a professional and later on a photographer and author. I love the mix of sweet, salty and savory recipes. Some of the items are very interesting like Black Sesame Seed Shortbread and Dirty Chai Tea Lattes. There is something in here for everyone! So far, I have only made two things but I plan on baking a whole lot more! Here are some pictures of the baked goods.

Brown Sugar Cupcakes

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Everything is so easy to make and it gives so many tips and tricks to baking. This would be a great housewarming gift, something for a first time baker or someone like me who loves cooking. If you are looking for some new recipes to try, I really recommend this book. You can find this cookbook on Amazon. 

So that is it for this book review. What are some of your favorite cookbooks? What do you like to bake? Comment below and let me know. Be safe, stay warm and see you on Sunday. Check out my previous post reviewing Insta Natural Essential Oils.

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.

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.

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…
