April Favorites

Happy Sunday!!! It has been a crazy busy week and weekend for me!! One of my best friends got married over the weekend and the wedding was amazing!! We had such a good time. Well, as I would say it's better late than never and here are my April Favorites. I didn't get a chance to film a video so I'm doing a regular post. So grab a snack and enjoy!!


Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick

I picked these up at IMATS back in April and have been wearing them ever since!! I have heard so many good things about these liquid lipsticks and had to get my hands on them. They are so pigmented and long wearing. I really didn't have to touch up my lipstick at all during the day. They do not feel drying at all which a plus. They do transfer a bit so be careful of that but they stay pigmented all day. I have two in the colors Berry Me and the limited edition Black Rose. Here are swatches of both.

I really recommend picking a few of these up, they are pretty amazing!! I'm in love with them lol!!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

After hearing some of my favorite You Tubers rave about this brush, I had to pick one up. I already love Real Technique brushes and knew this one would be a new favorite. It applies my foundation evenly and gives a flawless finish. The brush is super soft and just an overall great brush to own. Here is a close up of the brush.


Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Styling Butter

You guys already know this is one of favorite hair care lines. I saw this in Target one day and decided to give it a try. I love the thick and creamy texture of this styler and how moisturizing it is. Here is what the product looks like.

 It gives my hair amazing definition and helps keep my style looking great during the week. Here is a picture of a twistout I did using this styling butter.

Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter

I'll admit to picking up hair products and letting them sit in my bathroom for a while until I remember that I purchased the product lol!! I have heard so much about this twisting butter, I had to try it out. I was very impressed with the results I got after using this. I love the creamy consistency and the smell of this product. Here is what the products looks like.

 It helped keep the moisture in my hair and my style lasted for the week. Here is picture of my hair after using this twisting butter.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Extra Moisture Detangler

This is another random purchase I made at Target lol and really love this product. I already love Shea Moisture and this is another new favorite. I use this before styling my hair to get any tangles out I may have missed. My hair is pretty thick and can get tangled easily. This products really helps styling my hair so much easier.

So that is it for my April Favorites. What were your favorites last month? Have you tried any of these products? Comment below and let me know. Hope you have a great week and see you Thursday.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
