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??

  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.

  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 :)

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.



Eyes

(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. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
