On a personal note....

Happy Thursday! Man this week at work has been so crazy! Classes started up again and it has just been super busy. I can't wait to relax this weekend! It is funny how some things just happen for a reason. I wanted to put up a video today but my laptop decided to start acting crazy and I got a little frustrated but it was okay. I was think man what can I put up today and thought to give a little update to what is going on. My life is about to get a little more hectic and bust with planning my wedding. I got engaged December 26 and it was a total surprise! I plan on filming my engagement story soon and will be introducing a new series documenting the whole process. I was trying to think of a name of this series and hope to come up with one soon. I hope I don't drive myself crazy with all this planning but it will be well worth it when the big day. I'm just super excited about everything. I really have to buckle down and save save save!! It is going to be hard because I do a lot of impulse buying and at Sephora at least once a month lol. That is why establishing a budget is in my goals for this month. I need to really save more than I spend so I can have a nice wedding. Did I mention I was excited?? I'm still in grad school and that is going pretty well. I'm really learning a lot and enjoying my classes so far. My son asked for a brother for Christmas which was funny. Yes we do want more kids so he can have sibling to play with, just want it to be the right timing for another one. That is about all that I wanted to talk about. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Tuesday.

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! 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…
