Resolute Beauty Blogger-February and March 2015



Happy Thursday!!! Things have been a little crazy this week and kinda glad I have a day off tomorrow to relax and get some stuff done. Well I didn't update on my goals last month so I am combining them with this month's progress. I'm almost at the end of this and so amazed at how far I've come. Let's get into how I've been progressing with my goals!!


Blogging Goals

1. Set A Blogging Schedule- Before I started my new full time status, I had my set Sunday, Tuesday and Friday schedule. After taking a small break to get adjusted to everything, my new schedule is now Sunday and Thursday. It took a little bit to figure out a schedule that was really going to work and I could stick to. So far, it's been good!!

2.Change Up Current Style- I still want to make changes to the design of this blog and that is in the works. I have added a new fashion series to my blog which I'm really excited about. It gives me an excuse to shop more lol!! 

3.Attend A Blogging Event- I am still working very hard on this one and I have seen some I would love to attend but scheduling conflicts. I know I will get to one very soon!!

4.Proof Read Better- I have been kinda slacking on this but I am still reading over my post out loud before hitting the publish button. 

5. Get Calendar And Blogging Book- I am still using each one everyday and it helps so much since I have so much going on. It will be time for a new calendar soon and I'm on the hunt for a nice one. Any suggestions??

6. Learn More About Blogging- I have retained so much information over the past two months. I have been trying to study the info and use it. I'm really trying to retain readers and gain new ones. Trying to keep people coming back and returning and just trying to make things on Naturalle Drea a better experience.

Personal Goals

1. Wear Makeup More Often- I have been really having fun with creating new looks everyday. I even found my new signature everyday look. It is just not fun when it is time to clean all my brushes lol!!

2. Wear Skirts And Dresses More Often- I also have been enjoying putting outfits together and being very girly. I wear heels just about everyday I'm at work and just loving my new look.

3. Use BBW Stash More- I have been reaching for stuff more often. I had to throw away some older scents that didn't smell like the scent anymore. I also have been reaching for perfumes more but I've been balancing between both.

4. Not Stress So Much- I can't even think about the last time I've been really stressed about stuff. I do get overwhelmed at times but I've calmed down a lot.

5. Be More Prepared And Organized- Since I have started my new full time position, I had no choice but to be more organized. I have to get up even earlier now to get myself ready before waking up my son and getting him ready. I already have lunches packed and clothes laid out the night before. It's been a little struggle waking up so early but it is all worth it.

6. Finding Myself And Figuring Out What I Want To Do- Things in my life have been pretty good so far. I'm working full time now, loving my job and those that I work with, going back to school to get my masters and a little more financially stable. I know things before were a little shaky and I never lost faith that things would start to look up. I knew things would get better and I'm glad for these first few steps. I'm really working towards what I really want to do and see myself in 5 years.

So that is it for my personal and blogging goals. How are you making out with goals you set for yourself?? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy your weekend and see you Sunday.

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 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…
