Happily Ever Johnson: Updates

It has been so cold and windy lately, I'm not ready for winter lol. Well, I know I haven't updated you guys on the wedding planning lately and I wanted to have things in place before making any announcements or updates. We have decided to change venues and the wedding back to the states. It was somewhat of a mad rush to book a space. I got a little frustrated at some point because the plans were changing and I was worried about everything and if plans were going to stay concrete. I can breathe now because we officially have a venue! I felt like I was starting all over again with making appointments to visit venues, doing walk through, asking all those questions again and breaking down each price to make sure we were getting the best value and won't spend outside our budget. Our original date was not available anymore so we are now getting married in June of 2017. It was good that we have a later date so we have some more time to plan. So now it is back to deciding on center pieces, favors, escort cards, decor and so much more. The dress that I was going to purchase was not going to fit this new venue and kind of glad I didn't commit to it at the time. I started looking at dresses that I've tried on before and went out myself to try on some dresses. It was actually nice because I was able to look at the dresses and hear my opinion on them in way. And I can say that I will be saying yes to a dress! When I saw myself in the dress, I saw myself getting married in it. It was everything I was looking for and I didn't want to take it off lol! Of course you guys won't see it until the big day but I love it! I have the bridesmaid dresses picked out and the groomsmen tuxes as well. We also figured out what the groom was wearing as well! It seems like things are starting to really come together now and I'm getting excited! I am now trying to get the guest list together, collect correct addresses, figure out seating charts, invitations and so on. We also need a new hashtag for the wedding and I can't think of one lol I'm hoping I don't drive myself too crazy but glad I have the help of family and friends. I have been on Pinterest like crazy looking for ideas and have been finding some really great stuff. I just want this vision for our wedding to come together and we remember our special day forever.

See you guys Thursday!

  2. Just take a breathe and all will workout. It sounds like you have loads going on, but at least the later date is better for you. I used to help planning wedding events so I know it's a lot of work. <3

    1. Thank you so much! Yes I do have a lot going on and glad we have a little more time for everything!

  3. I feel like picking out the venue is the most important part so I'm glad you finally have everything figured out! Glad things are coming together for you!

    1. Yes it was important because I was basing my dress off the venue. I'm glad that part is over lol! Thank you Tanya!!

  4. That's great to see everything's coming together for you! Can't wait to see your dress!

    1. Thanks Jackie. I was stressing out a bit but glad things are working out!

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!

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…
