Happily Ever Johnson- Updates

It is crazy how you expect things to be vs reality of things. I can say that I expected different when planning a wedding and it is pretty much not how TV and movies made it look lol. Everyone has a different experience and mine is not like everyone else's. I'm just glad in a way that I'm not as stressed but this every little detail thing...ugh! I can say I have said YES to a dress! It was such a hard decision because I was between two dresses and it was so hard trying to choose one. I went with the one I kept thinking about, kept looking at the picture of myself in that dress over and over. I am so happy with my choice and can't wait til you guys see it. We have started our registries and still trying to put stuff on there. I didn't realize there was so much stuff and just trying to figure out what we really need and what to put on there. If I could I would put everything but you do have to narrow it down so people are not printing out a 20 page registry list. It can get overwhelming trying to shop for someone, I have shopped for many registries lol. I am getting a little frustrated because of this Zika virus that is around now. We want to have more children and it could be a risk for us having this destination wedding. I'm really trying to figure now the best thing to do. We both really don't want to change our plans again but on the other hand, we want to be healthy to have more kids ....ugh ...decisions...decisions...decisions. At the end of the day, I just want my Dad to walk me down the aisle and have memories with my husband (of course I want to slay in a wedding dress lol). In the meantime we are getting the Save The Dates together and I already started looking at invitations. I've been online and in stores looking. I want something that has our color scheme and just something really elegant and nice. I found this website Minted that you can request a free kit from.

They basically send you a couple sample invitations, different kinds of paper, colors, font and so on. This was so helpful so I can determine what style of invitation I would like. Hopefully it won't be so hard to pick out invitations lol. That is basically where we are right now with the planning. Let me know where you ordered your invitations from or any recommendations. Enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Thursday!

I have a busy, fun weekend ahead of me. I can't wait to hang out with some of my close friends and have a good time.

I really want to change my hair color but don't know what color and how my hair would react. 


  1. SO glad you picked your dress! Can't wait to see it! The zika virus is def scary...I feel like invitations were the easy part for me. Just pick a color that you want to be part of your wedding and go from there.

    1. Me too,, it was such a hard decision lol! I hope this invitation process is easy lol. Thanks for reading Tanya!!

  2. I'm afraid of the Zika virus also....our family is going on a cruise during the Christmas time and we are stopping at some stops that are affected by Zika.

    1. I haven't been on a cruise in so long. Yea it is a scary thing, hopefully it is not as bad next year. Thanks for stopping by E!

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.


(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.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
