On a personal note.......

Happy Thursday!! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend! I had fun with family and friends and just enjoyed being off work for a nice long weekend. Now it seems like everyone is getting ready for Christmas and 2016 will be here before we know it. I debated on doing a post on this but I kept thinking about it so I decided why not. Last month I went to a party with one of my best friends. We had fun laughing, joking and dancing to good music. It was great to get out because both of us have kids and we haven't been out in a while. So as the party goes on and people start filtering in, we started to get approached by guys. Now this one guy came over to dance and it's a party, you're supposed to dance. So the guy asks what my name is and if I have someone. I answered that yes I have someone. He's like No, I'm playing and I'm like I'm serious, no games here. Then he said something that made me stop and look at him like he was crazy. He said "Well, take down my number so I can be an option". I had to stop and think about what this dude said. Why would you want to be an option aka side dude? Wouldn't you want to be with someone that is completely yours? I respect my relationship and sometimes don't understand why others don't? So most of the night this guy kept finding me and trying so hard to convince me that I needed to give him my number and it was getting so annoying after a while. There were plenty of other females at this party that were most likely single and he was chasing me. My friend and I left the party early so I could avoid that dude when the party let out. What he said and how he was acting really stuck and I just couldn't get why he didn't respect my relationship, Why is it okay for me to step outside my relationship to talk to you. If I did leave my guy for you, I know he wouldn't like it if I did the same thing to him. I honestly don't think people think of these things. It seems like television heavily influences affairs and it being okay to be the side piece. It seems like people really don't value if someone is in a relationship or not. When did it be okay to be number 2? When did it become normal in a way? Even if I was single, that is such a turn off. If I don't want to talk to you or not interested, respect that and move on. I guess this is something that can probably never be answered.

So that is it for another on a personal note. I will be back tomorrow with November Favorites.

Have you checked out my previous post, November Essence Beauty Box??

~**Drea Notes**~

I haven't put up my tree yet. Is anyone else ready for Christmas?

I tried the new Holiday Spice Flat White at Starbucks and it was pretty good. You just have to let it sit for a little bit to get the full flavor.


  1. Some people are pretty ballsy. I don't understand it either. I feel like cheating is so "normal" now a days it disgusts me. Loyalty is a very hard thing to find now a days....

    1. I agree Tonya. It seems like things have really changed. Hopefully we can understand it someday. Thanks for reading!

  2. You know Andrea I think that this is such an important topic to discuss. I find it disgusting how some people will try disrespect a person relationship. I don't understand it either why would anyone want to be a backup person. Also I read a story about this woman who was engaged and she turn down a man who asked her out and he killed her! I was like what is this world coming to?!

    1. I heard about that and it was so sad and senseless. I don't know what is wrong with people these days. Thanks for reading Pilar!

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. 

(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…
