Happily Ever Johnson:Just Engaged, so now what?

Happy Snowy Friday!! The snow is really starting to come down and it looks like I'll be snowed in for my birthday! I can always celebrate another weekend but was looking forward to this weekend. Well I hope you got the chance to watch my engagement story. You can see that post HERE!! Well I'm bringing the first post to my new series, Happily Ever Johnson(that is going to be my new last name lol). I'll be taking you guys along the whole planning process until the big day. Since we just engaged we've been doing a lot of talking about everything. It was just like where do we start with the whole process?? I found The Knot.Com and that website is just amazing!! It has everything and is very helpful! You can view different venues, make your guest list, and view pictures of just about everything. I love that it gives you a to-do list for things you should be doing every month up until the big day. Here is a snap shot of our checklist.

They have so many articles and just full of so much information so I don't feel so overwhelmed. We first thought about the budget which is the most important thing. You have to know what you can spend and the limit you want to set. I think this is very important! I really want a nice wedding within our budget. We next talked about a date. We wanted to have enough time to plan and enjoy the whole process so it will be Spring 2017! We also started selecting the wedding party and compiling our family and friends list. It just seems like a lot but I am up to the challenge. I decided to take on planning the wedding myself and with some help from family. I'm just so excited. My fiance also brought this planning book and mug for me. I love how hands on he is with this process.

I can't wait to get into this book!! I hope you guys stay safe and warm wherever you are and see you on Tuesday!!

I tried the new Latte Macchiato at Starbucks. I like it with a pump or two of Vanilla.

I hope this is the only big snow storm we are getting this year! Lol!

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…
