On A Personal Note....

Time do you manage?? We all want to get everything done in the 24 hour day but it seems like there isn't enough time in the day. I feel like I may be taking on too much or losing how to manage everything. There is so much I want to do and it is like I don't have enough time. Maybe I'm over thinking and I do that a lot but I'm starting to get a little overwhelmed with everything. I know what is important but there is so much that is a priority. It is already tough being a full time working mom and now fiance' but throw in grad student, blogger and now wedding planner. Also still finding time to be around friends, date nights,working out and family time. Sometime it is a miracle how I even get everything done. Sometimes I'm running around like a crazy person but you wouldn't see that. I keep it looking like I have it all together and not letting others see that you are going crazy. That you have a million and one thoughts running through your head at once and it is hard to keep focus. I love when I have a day off during the week. It is my time to really relax. I would sit in the house sometimes on the couch and just listen to the stillness and quiet. I can hear myself think and really get my thoughts together. It helps keep me sane at times. It is always good to take a time out and get yourself together during the week. I feel like it would help so much if you have a chaotic life. At some point, I will figure all this out, I know I will. See you guys Friday!!

Have you checked out my previous post on my April Essence Beauty Box??

I see that Starbucks brought back the S'mores Frap! I liked it last year and will be getting it again. I wonder if another new drink will be coming soon.

I can't believe my niece is graduating high school next month!! I feel super old lol!! Kids grow up so fast!! My son will be going to kindergarten next year! I know I'm going to cry!


  1. There is definitely not enough time in the day. I wish I got out of work earlier it would definitely help! I can't imagine being a mom too! You must do a pretty good job at juggling everything though. :)

    1. I would love to work out in the morning, it would be great cause I'm too tired after work. Thank you so much Tanya!!

    1. It would be nice though lol! Thank you 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.

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…
