Blogger Behind The Scenes Tag

My Christmas tree is still up lol. That is only part I don't like about the holidays is taking everything down. I will get to it soon, hopefully. So during my Christmas break, I was reading through everyone's blogs and commenting and came across a tag Rhondine at Napps & Sass did. I thought it was a nice tag so I decided to do it myself!

Where do you blog?

I am always on the couch with a glass of wine, laptop on lap and sometimes watching tv. I sometimes blog from my tablet or phone but majority of the time, it is on the couch.

Where do you find inspiration for your blog post?

I try to map things out ahead of time so I can figure out what I want to blog about, what products I want to review and videos to record. I love talking about beauty products that I've tried and love, my subscription boxes, hair and fashion so the inspiration comes from there.

How long does it take you to do a blog post?

It really depends on the type of post. If it involves a video, that takes the longest. I'm bad with pre-recording, most of the time I'm filming the night before, editing, taking pictures, waiting for it to upload. That take a few hours. If it is a review on a product, it can take about a half hour to 45 minutes. If it is a personal post, it takes about a half hour.

Do you plan your blog post? If so, how?

Yes I plan my blog post. I use my task calendar on my tablet to keep track of what I want to post for the month. I usually see what products I've used to review, have one or two personal posts, my subscription box and favorites. I just go through the month and map out what post I'm going to do each week and try to plan ahead with the picture taking and filming.

What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

I really like when I review my beauty samples. It is fun trying out new products that I've received from subscription boxes and seeing what works and what doesn't. I always discover new favorites and exposed to companies that are new to me.

What kind of camera do you use?

For my pictures, that is all my phone lol. I have the LG5 and love the camera on it. When I record my videos, I am currently using the FujiFilm Finepix S. I am in the market for a new camera to record with and take pictures with.

What editing program do you use?

Adobe Premier

Do you use a notebook to track your ideas?

I use to but now I use my tablet for that. It is easier to carry around lol.

Do you take your own pictures?

Yes I do!

Who knows about your blog?

My family and friends know about it and those that follow me on here and social media.

Are you an organized or messy blogger?

I will say that I am in the middle. I do plan out my post ahead of time but always doing things last minute lol. I'm working on it!

Biggest Blogging Pet Peeve?

Hmmmm.... I don't think that I have one lol.

So that is it for this tag. I tag all of you who read this to this as well. See you guys Friday!

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…
