On a personal note....

It seems like so much has been going on lately, the presidential race, Olympics, summer going by way too fast, Football season is almost back (I had to throw that in there lol). Along with that, I'm still holding down a lot but it has gotten so much easier with having a set schedule for everything. I don't feel like a chicken with its head cut off lol. I'm not doing so much last minute anymore but still procrastinate a bit (can't help it lol). It just feels like I am a lot more focused on what needs to be done, what is a priority and so on. It just hit me that I'm an adult (like after how many years) and I'm about to be a wife next year. Where did my young adulthood go? It just seems like I was fresh out of college with my degree, still going out and partying and just getting into real adult responsibilities. Now I'm a mommy, about to get married, looking for a house, back in school and really trying to find my niche in the career world. I am still amazed every time I look at my son that I helped create that little life and he's growing so fast. He's going to kindergarten (I think I'm going to cry the first day of school). It is just amazing to me and I love my role as a mom. The other day I was up late and the movie Step Up was on. At some point I started to tear up because of how much I miss dancing. I really hope I can fit that back into my schedule because it was something that was a big part of my life and such a passion. I would eat, sleep and breath it if I had to chance to. I also can't get over Naturalle Drea turning 3 years old at the end of the month. I'll have a blogaversary post around then.

  1. Life really does fly by! You should look into classes and take them every now and then. You don't want to lose something that you loved so much!

    1. I have been trying to find some classes but there are always conflicts with my schedule. Hopefully I will. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!

  2. Time flies when you're having fun =) The worse thing is sacrificing what you really, really love because of stuff but there's always a way to squeeze that in if you really want it.

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.

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! 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…
