On A Personal Note.....

Happy Sunday! Fall weather is really here and I'm loving it! I was just inspired to write this from some things that happened at my job. I come across a lot of people and it just bothers me sometimes that they are so impatient. They try to rush a lot things that need time to happen. It made me think of how I used to be. I was so impatient and wanted things to happen when I wanted them to. I would get so frustrated about things and it took me a little bit to realize I needed to be patient and learn to wait. Like the saying goes, good things come to those who wait and that is very true. I had to learn the hard way that things will fall into place when they are supposed to and it is okay to wait for things to happen. Sometimes you can't help but get excited and want things right away but it is so worth it when it comes at the right time. I just want to say to those of you reading this that everything will fall into place when it is the right time and will be worth waiting for. Life is too short to rush through everything, take your time and smell the roses. I am so glad that I learned to be patient and wait on things to come. It is the best feeling in the world when what you have been waiting for happens at the right place and time. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend, see you guys Thursday!!

I'm so mad at my football team. I hope they get it together today and win please!

  1. So true! I still struggle with having patients, I want things to happen like yesterday, even though I know that things will happen when they are supposed to happen and not before. Fantastic post Andrea!

    1. Thanks Keisha. I'm always in a rush myself but it is good to slow down and wait for thing to happen. Thanks for reading!

  2. i think part of it too is our society--we need everything fast. now info, food, everything is available super-fast. i remember the card catalog days in the library. now it takes seconds.

    1. That is very true Elle. It seems like everything new that comes out is supposed to be faster than the previous one. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thanks for the reminder love! Being patient is one I learned from taking care of my fur babies and doing some meditation - definitely great for my blood pressure hehehe!

    1. I need to meditate some mornings before my son gets up and I get my day started. You are welcome Jackie and thanks for reading!

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.


(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.

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!

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…
