January Goals and Special Announcement

Happy New Year!! I can't believe it is already 2016 and I wish everyone nothing but good things in the new year. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and spent time with family and friends! I just wanted to come on here to let you guys know Naturalle Drea's new blogging schedule. I really thought about my schedule and how hectic everything was. I really needed to set a better schedule for myself so I have time to do things. Now there will be posts on Tuesday, Thursday and every other Friday. Also I will be starting monthly goals as a new series. I will post at the beginning of the month a few things I want to accomplish or improve and will post the results at the end of the month. This month I want to work on the following:

Drink more water- I have been slacking so much on this. I used to drink water all day at work and just have been slowly getting away from it.

Exercise More- This is also something that is not easy to do. I don't have my gym in the area of where I work and it is hard to workout before or after work. I have a few DVDs I can use and Nike Training Club on my phone.

Set a budget- I have a lot of exciting things coming up that I really need to save up for. I do a lot of impulse buying and I need to save more money. This is going to be hard but it needs to be done.

Take my vitamins- I got away from taking my vitamins as well. The bottle is just sitting on the kitchen table waiting for me to start taking them again.

So at the end of the month, I will let you guys know how I made out. See you guys on Tuesday!!

Have you checked out my previous post on my December Birchbox and Ispy??

    1. I forget to take my vitamins and I sit them on the kitchen table so I see them but still ignore them. Thanks for stopping by Keisha!!

  3. I am also planning on a better blogging schedule and i love the monthly goals idea! I slacked off during December and need to get back to a good routine now. *

    1. It really helps to have a good schedule so you can plan ahead of time. Thanks for reading Jackie!!

  4. Great goals! I need to eat healthier which is a constant struggle for me. Blog schedules are def to keep up with if you have an already hectic life. 2x a week is hard for me now.

    1. Eating healthy is always hard especially when people bring in cookies and doughnuts lol! Yes things happen and it is hard but I'm determined to stick to it. Thanks for reading Tanya!

  5. I have set out a whole new blogging and YouTube schedule for myself too. I'm crossing my fingers that everything works out.

    1. I hope everything works out with your new schedule Lily! It can be tough at times. Thanks for stopping by!

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! 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…
