On A Personal Note....

Happy Football Sunday!! I'm currently watching NFL Red Zone as I type. I was going to do a fashion post today but something was tugging at me to do a personal post. The other day I was just looking at my son and I'm just amazed at the little life I helped bring into the world. I can't believe he's 4 already and growing up so much. He's in preschool now and will be in kindergarten before I know it. It's just amazing how I can love someone so much like this. When I first found out I was carrying him, I was scared at first but the more I got to hear his heartbeat, see him through Sonograms, feel him kicking and moving, I grew more and more in love. I couldn't wait for the day I saw his little face and I just instantly fell in love the moment I laid eyes on him. Of course I was wondering what to do now, how to raise him, will he turn out to be a good person? All those things still wonder in my mind but everyday with him has been amazing. Yes we have our days were I'm asked 50 million questions, hear Mommy every 5 seconds and want to lose it because he's not listening but looking at that cute face and hearing him say "I love you Mommy" just melts my heart. I love watching him grow and learn things everyday. I just never imagined having a child would make you feel like this and it is an amazing feeling. I understand what my parents felt when I was born and raising me. I understand how important it is to be there in your child's life, at every concert and school event. I loved going to his seasonal concerts and enjoying Muffins With Mommy for Mother's Day. I just sometimes can't get over that I'm someones Mommy and that is my title now lol. It seems like people only want to see your kid, not you anymore. I'm enjoying this journey and hope to have one or two more in the future without the morning sickness and swelling please lol. I just wanted to gush about my son, he's just amazing and I love him so much!

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!

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…
