On a personal note......

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekend and cold weather! This is something that I've been seeing a lot of lately and I'm kinda fed up with it. I honestly debated on writing about it but it has been on my mind for a while and I just had to write about it. I've been trying to wrap my head around why women do more tearing down of each other instead of being more supportive. I see a lot of this on social media and it's sickening. One thing I saw was a recent YouTuber that hit 1 million and an Instagram page posted a picture of her congratulating her and the comments where so uncalled for and ridiculous. People were basically saying that because she's light skin, she's not black and just being straight up ignorant for no reason. You just couldn't say congratulations on her hitting a milestone, you had to be disrespectful for no reason. I just can't understand why people feel the need to be Internet bullies and say whatever they feel in the comments of people's pages. If you don't like the person, video or picture.....just ignore it. I see a lot of this in my community and I'm tired of it. I'm supportive of everyone, no matter what it is you are doing, what color you are or anything. It is just sad. I'm sick of the battle of natural hair vs relaxed hair. I have had both and just so happens that my hair being in its natural state works better for me. I don't bash anyone that still relaxes their hair, I'm supportive of healthy hair. I'm sick of the light skin vs dark skin. We are all the same race, does it really matter??? We don't support each other enough and then complain about not seeing enough of us hitting 1 million on YouTube or on social media or business owners. We don't support each other!! On the other side of it, I do see women supporting each other, reposting each other, purchasing their products and saying nothing but genuine and good things about them. Why can't we see more of that around? Why can't we just use our good judgment or common sense? I don't know what is wrong with some people. I'm going to continue to be supportive of everyone, even if I don't get the support back. It is okay because I know who I have in my corner and who truly supports me. I'm so appreciative of everyone who has been trying to help me with this blog and make it better and giving me that constructive criticism.I'm going to be more supportive of my fellow bloggers and YouTubers.  I love blogging and hope to start doing tutorials soon. I know that ignorant comments do come with that and ignorant people.I'm surprised that I have 31 subscribers on YouTube and hope to gain more. I hope to gain more readers and commenters on my blog. Its okay if I have a little or huge following. I do this because I love it. I hope that women can come together more and be more supportive instead of tearing each other down.

I'm sorry but I just needed to say something about this. Hey this is my platform here and feel like I should be more personal sometimes and speak about things.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you guys tomorrow.

Have you checked out my previous post on my most recent haul from The Makeup Holiday Pop Up Show??

  1. It's very seems a lot of people don't want to see someone happy or doing better than them. I don't like seeing the disrespect myself :(

    1. I just don't understand it, hopefully things will get better someday! Thanks for stopping by E!!

  2. I agree, we should be supporting and uplifting one another not tearing one another down! I so know the struggle with light skinned vs dark skinned. I have had deal with that a lot growing up. Fantastic post Andrea and I'm looking forward to you tutorials!

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…
