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??

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: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
