Shopping My Beauty Samples

I can't believe that Christmas will be here soon! I need to start wrapping my gifts soon and so happy I finally got the tree up. Well, my son reminded us that it had to be up so Santa can put the gifts under the tree lol. It has been a while since I posted my beauty samples and I have so many to go through lol. Let's get into the reviews.

Ayers Body Polish in Pampas Sunrise

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00
Review: I really love trying new body scrubs. I have tried Ayers body butter before and really loved it so I knew I would love this as well. I like that it is not abrasive at all and leaves your skin feeling super smooth and soft. Sometimes I don't like the coarse, rough body scrub and want something that feeling a little more soothing. I probably would repurchase this.

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 35.00
Review: You guys know my love/hate relationship with facial serums and this one is a love. I have tried other products by Evologie and have really liked them. This serum worked really well with my skin (meaning I didn't break out at all) and I just really loved the results after using this for a couple weeks. I most likely would repurchase this.

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss In Queen B

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 6.00
Review: I have been loving this lip gloss and wearing it a lot lately. I love the dark purple color which is perfect for this time of the year and it is not sticky at all. It has a nice shine and pretty good wear time. I have so many other Be A Bombshell products that I haven't tried or used yet but so far, I like this company. This gloss is super affordable and would repurchase. Here is a swatch of the lip gloss.

Quidad Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner

Box It Came From: Essence Beauty Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 38.00
Review: Using a deep conditioner is such an important step in my hair routine. I have tried so many out and will be adding this to my list of favorites. I really like the pretty thick and creamy texture of this deep conditioner and how my hair felt after using it. My hair was super soft and it really helped define my curls. I love that it has coconut, grapeseed and avocado oils which are amazing benefit for your hair. I will be repurchasing this.

Naked Beaute Exfoliating Facial Scrub

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I was really interested in giving this scrub a try because of the cranberry in the ingredients lol. This facial scrub is pretty amazing and loved the results I got. My skin felt super soft, it had a nice healthy glow and it felt so smooth. You don't need a lot of this scrub at all and it is a little rough but not too much. I will be repurchasing this one.

Naked Beaute Morroccan Facial Fruit and Clay Mask

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I haven't tried a powder based mask before and it was pretty interesting. I didn't want to spill anything as I was pouring it out to use. It mixes really well with water and applies pretty smooth. I was not expecting the mask to dry so tight on my face but loved the results. My skin was smooth and supple. I would repurchase this mask.

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
