On a personal note.....

Funny thing, for the past two weeks I didn't feel like putting on makeup. As much as I love it, I just didn't feel like it. I felt like I was in a funk or something. My thoughts felt pretty clouded and like I couldn't get them together. It felt like so much was going on or I was thinking about too much at one time. Times like that make me miss yoga. I love how relaxing and refreshing it was. I was able to clear everything out of my mind and just have a clear mind, be able to see things clearly. I often go outside for a walk on my lunch to get some fresh air and help to clear all these thoughts. Sometimes I go somewhere quiet and just listen to the quietness. I love to do that, just sit and be still. It is really relaxing and helps me a lot. I'm speaking on this to say that is okay to frustrated by life sometimes. It may lead to breakthrough or new discovery. Being in this kinda funk inspired me in a way. I feel like I discovered something about myself and really learning about me in a way. It made me look at how things have been going in a different way and given me a different perspective. I just wanted to give some encouragement to those that may be going through something like I am or something different. Things will always find a way of working themselves out, you will always learn something good out of anything.

I hope you guys have a good weekend and see you Tuesday!!

Have you checked out my April Favorites??

~**Drea Notes**~

I think we found our resort and venue for the destination wedding!! It is getting exciting!

I can't wait to see family this weekend. I still can't get over my niece graduating from high school! I feel old lol!

I think I am one of the few people who haven't seen Lemonade or heard the album yet! Lol! 


  1. I haven't seen Lemonade either. I'm not a fan of Beyonce lol I like her better back during her Destiny's Child and Crazy in Love days. I have felt the same way as you said above. I still wear makeup but just in a funk. Not feeling very positive or in a good place lately. I am hoping I can change this because its a pretty shitty feeling. I work out which is supposed to help with stress but it hasn't lately :/. I take my dog for a walk on my lunch break every other day and its def nice to enjoy the weather.

    1. Fresh air seems to make you feel better or just going for a walk. I hope you get out of this funk too Tanya!

  2. I'm so much in a funk these days too. I can't seem to shake that feeling no matter I do lately. I am hopeful that things will get better :) I'm not a fan of Beyonce either lol! Like Tanya, I prefer her during her Destiny's Child days.

    Keisha xo

    1. I'm sure things will get better Keisha! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Girl, I feel it. We all go through those ups and downs. I've been going make-up-less too, just not feeling all the makeup hype lately and trying to take a step back as a reminder to myself that all natural is all good too. I'm sure you're still slaying au natural. Keep your head up :)

    1. Yes there are days I want to be extra and days I want a natural look. Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. Thanks so much for this Andrea! I have downloaded a Meditation App for times I just need a break when blasting music doesn't work.

    1. Maybe I should get a meditation app too. It could help. Thanks Jackie!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
