On A Personal Note...

It is currently 12:45am and I just finished twisting my hair and kind of forgot I had a post that is supposed to go up today lol! I had something else planned for today but just wanted to be personal today. I had the most amazing weekend and just still thinking about it. I attended The Fearless Conference in Philly but I was doing my first Instagram takeover during the conference!! A little while back, Ahiyana Angel of Life According To Her reached out to me about taking over her Instagram stories during the conference. She first thought of me because I'm in the area and has been watching me on social media since we came in contact at her event, I Need New Friends (I have a post on this event, just to refresh your memory, you can read RIGHT HERE)! I was super excited because someone thought of me and saw potential in me going to an event on their behalf. I then became a little nervous about doing so. I really didn't tell too many people until everything was all set. I will have a more detailed post and vlog on the conference but it was so refreshing to be around so many women and we were just all being supportive and nice to each other. Everyone was just so friendly, down to earth and just wonderful to be around. I learned so much and took away some valuable lessons. I decided to take the quarter off from school to throw myself into this wedding planning. I am not happy that Zika decided to come around because we may be back here with the wedding. Of course that is another post for my wedding series but we want to have another baby and taking that risk with the destination wedding really made us think about it. So yea, I'll be doing more of that and trying to get everything else with life in order. At the end of the day, I just want to be happy and have a successful marriage. I would love for all the kid networks to stop playing so many toy commercials. It seems like they are going really heavy early with them. My son has been asking for stuff almost everyday lol. I'm trying to get him to narrow down his list for Santa lol! This should be fun! We're also trying to get him to pick a Halloween costume, he has it down to three but I am not buying three costumes lol! Hopefully he will pick one soon. I'm slowly getting back in the gym at least once a week which is a start. I hope to pick up some more days soon.



  1. That's exciting that you got to do an instagram takeover! Congrats! The Zika virus is SUPER scary! I don't blame you....and yes they DEF start xmas ads wayyyy too early!!!

    1. It was so much fun and hope I can do it again sometime. Yes this Zika is scary, we want to take it safe but I was really looking forward to the destination wedding. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!!

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.

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…
