The Fearless Conference

The Fall weather is officially here! I started to pull out my jackets and long sleeve shirts, I love this time of the year. Today I am going to be talking about my weekend at The Fearless Conference. 

This is the second year for this conference that was created by Melissa Alam. This conference was created to get women together to empower and encourage women to not be afraid of taking those leaps of faith and go for what they desire to do. You get to be around like minded women and get advice, tips and motivation from those that have learned to become fearless in different industries. You can learn more about the conference RIGHT HERE!!

A little while back I was contacted by Ahiyana Angel of Life According To Her to go on her behalf and takeover her Instagram stories. I was super excited and flattered that someone thought of me to do something on their behalf. I couldn't wait to attend the event. We stayed in contact to map out a plan for the weekend and she was very encouraging that I was going to do a good job. 

The Fearless Conference is held for two days. You can choose one of the days or attend both. The first day was full of workshops and a happy hour at the end. You were able to choose between two different workshop tracks and you could move from each one depending on the ones you were interested in, I was just blown away by the information and advice I was hearing. One of the workshops featured Jess Edelestein, co founder of PiperWai. Her story of how she turned her side hustle into a multi million dollar business was just amazing. Her company, which sells natural deodorant was featured on Shark Tank and I was just soaking up everything. What stood out to me was when she said that you have to be resilient. I loved how she didn't let anything get her down and she stuck to what she believed in and has become successful. I also learned from another workshop another way to really use Pinterest to make inspiration boards. I feel like I have been using it wrong all this time lol. I also learned more on how to use social media to my advantage. After all the workshops were done, we got to enjoy a happy hour so we can relax and network with other attendees. There was also of photo booth so you could take some fun keepsake pictures.

I had the pleasure of conducting an interview with Melissa for Life According To Her and she is so down to earth and so sweet. I love that she created this event for empowering and uplifting women. You can check out the interview on Life According To Her's YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!

The second day was full of keynote speakers, Live Q&A and a few panels. Before everything started, there was lunch, the photo booth and you could also get you hair and/or makeup done and take some professional headshots. It was also a time to network and talk among the other attendees.

After all that fun, the day began with keynote speaker Amanda Steinberg founder and CEO of Daily Worth and Worth FM. She was such an amazing speaker and really encouraged us to know about our finances and how to really invest and save. There was live Q&A session with the co-founder of LOLA, Jordnan Kier. She helped launch a tampon subscription service (we got a sample in our swag bags lol). I love how she just went against the neigh sayers and put out a product that is made with 100% cotton. Next we sat in on a series of panels from different people taking about how to manage your work/life balance, how to be your own boss and how women can stand in a male dominated workforce. I loved hearing everyone's advice, perspectives and encouragement. 

After everything was done, it was time to go home and apply what you learned. I just love that it was such a judgment free zone. Everyone was super nice and down to earth. We all just talked and got along so well. It was refreshing to be around a group that is all about empowering other, wanting to see everyone succeed and just giving women that extra encouragement. I loved every minute of the conference and will be back again next year. I am so thankful to Ahiyana for the opportunity to takeover her Instagram stories and be reporting live from the conference lol. It was a little hard for me at first because I had my phone, camera and tablet at the same time. I was getting footage for both myself and Ahiyana lol. I was a pro by day 2! We need more women coming together for a positive purpose and spreading that around and encouraging others.

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…

Make Beauty Review*

Happy Friday beauty lovers! I hope you have been enjoying Winter again lol! I hope Mother Nature gets it together soon lol. Today I am bringing you another review powered by BrandBacker! *I was sent these products for testing purposes and this is my opinion after using. Let's get into the reviews!

I was pretty excited when I was picked for this campaign. I have tried a Make Beauty eyeshadow before and loved it. Honestly, I was expecting the samples to be a little bigger. I was a little disappointed in the lipstick sample, it was hard to use. It kept breaking when I was trying to apply it. Make Beauty is a very new company to me that I was introduced to through Birchbox.  They have just about everything from eyeshadows to contour kits. They also have a line for skincare as well.

Review on Country Life Maxi Hair Plus Biotin Vitamins

Back in February, I purchased these vitamins to try out and I finally finished the bottle lol. You can find my first post about these vitamins here.

I previously tried Biotin vitamins by Nature Made and you can see my review on those here. I read some where on Facebook that these were the dupe to the Hairfinity Vitamins that everyone is talking about. I wanted to see for myself how these vitamins worked. I read reviews before purchasing and saw nothing but great reviews except for one or two people saying they had a headache when they first started them.I love that these are Gluten-Free and Vegetarian capsules. The only thing about these vitamins is having to take four daily. I found it better for me to split them up. I would take two after breakfast and the remaining two during lunch. Sometimes I would forget to take the second set or forget them all together. I will say that I saw better results with these than with the Nature Made vitamins. My hair is fuller and has grown some. I d…
