On A Personal Note...

I had another post planned for today but I'm not sure what was up with my laptop and the pictures downloading super slow. I got a little impatient and wasn't going to write anything but something just came to me. It seems like there is so much going on right now, it is hard to see anything that is positive in the world. It just seems like everything is so crazy and out of control. I know a lot of people feel fear, anger, sadness and hurt. I just felt so inspired after attending The Fearless Conference. It was great to be around so many women and no one was talking about each other in a negative way, everyone was super sweet, down to earth and genuine. You don't see a lot of that on tv now. I know reality television is supposed to be for entertainment but how women are being portrayed sometimes is not right to me. I have stopped watch a lot of those shows because I just see women tearing each other down, calling each other outside of their name, being very disrespectful and so on. I see a lot of that in real life and its sad. We should be more united than ever now instead of being jealous because she has longer hair, she's prettier, she looked at you the wrong way. I wish more positivity can be portrayed more than what is going on. I used to hate when people talked about me behind my back, especially people who I thought were my friends. It would hurt and really get to me. I didn't understand it and then I started doing it. I realized that I didn't like how I felt so why would I do that to someone else? There is no reason to be jealous or hateful towards anyone. You are unique and were made different for a reason. I love myself and it it took me a while to reach that point but I was so thankful when I did. I felt so much better that I could look in the mirror and love what I see. I stopped comparing myself to these other images out here because I didn't want to look like anyone else. I love how different I am from everyone else and I know there are others that feel the same way. It is so hard when there are all these famous images out there. You want to have legs like that person, abs of steel like this one, huge boobs like this one. I will admit that when I saw Teyana Taylor, it made me want to hit the gym hard lol. I know I wouldn't have abs like hers but I want to get back in the gym for myself. I want to be healthy for my family and for myself. I don't want to be out of shape because my son runs so fast and I need to keep up with him lol. I just wish one day I will see more positivity and love and support of each other. I know it is out there, I don't see too much but I know it is out there.  We all have one goal in mind, that's to succeed. Let's cheer and encourage each other that we can make it, that we all can be successful and make it. 



  1. Great post future Mrs. Johnson! TV networks need to get back to providing quality content. It's sad but drama, gossip and fighting have become the new norm not only on tv but in society.

    1. Well thank you Mr. Johnson. It is sad how "reality" tv is spilling over into real life and people are not seeing the difference. Hopefully things will change. Thanks for reading!!

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…
