June Goal Results and July Goals

I had such an amazing weekend! I went to an event in New York (it will on the blog soon) and hung out with friends. What did you guys do this past weekend? Today I am bring you the results of my June Goals and ones I have set for July. You can see last month's goals HERE!!

Create a schedule for Schoolwork and Blogging (including a YouTube Schedule)

This had to be done because I was just all over the place trying to get things done and it was driving me a little crazy. I wasn't making enough time for everything and was falling behind on some things. Also recording and editing videos is very time consuming and I would sometimes be up so late at night trying to get the next day's post up and I would be so tired going into work the next day. The schedule really seemed to work and helped me so much. I have days were I would record videos, prep post, do my schoolwork and time for rest. With this schedule, I wanted to have day were videos go up on my channel. I was just all over the place with that as well. Now videos will be on the blog and channel every other Thursday and Friday.

Bring Back Workout Challenge with DVD's 

*Sigh*.... I've come to notice that I cannot force the workout unless I'm willing to make the time for it. I know that I want to be healthy and be active but I have to find a way to fit it in my busy schedule. If that means that I have to workout after work or early in the morning then it will happen. I actually did workout for two weeks and started to see results but just fell off after that. I will get it together at some point, especially with the wedding coming up.

30 Day Accountability and Inspirational Journal

I was very successful with this one, well the month isn't over yet but this has been so helpful. This is from Life According To Her by Ahyiana Angel. I met her at the I Need New Friends event I attended in April. You can check out that post HERE! Ahyiana's business is a community that is all about uplifting and supporting women. It is also a place for resources on business advancement and just learning. This journal unfortunately is unavailable but please check out her website RIGHT HERE!! I have learned so much about myself doing this journal and it has made me aware that I need to have more accountability for myself and things I am trying to do.

Here are the goals that I have set for July:

Get through a book
Stick to schedule for schoolwork and blogging
No meat during the week

Did you have goals set from last month? How did you make out? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday!!

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.

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.

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!

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…
