Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal dinnerware, we wanted something that had the right amount of flare I'll say without being too much. The rep from Miskasa was so helpful in that department. 

We walked around the store for a while and found some cookware, towels, washcloths and other kitchen stuff. I really loved the event and crossing that off of my list lol!

Next on our list was the wedding bands. We both were not too sure on what kind of bands that we wanted. We headed over the jeweler where he got my engagement ring from and he was super helpful and made the process easy. It was really fun trying on all the bands and I found one that I loved and went with my ring. My fiance found a band that he liked as well. I didn't know they made rings in all these different metals, I thought it was either silver or gold lol.

Lastly was getting together with my coordinators (aka my Mom and aunts lol) and looking for decor. We are pretty much doing a DIY for the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres  and so on. We went out on one Saturday around to a few stores looking for the flowers to everything. It was a lot trying to figure out my many tables, how many bridesmaids, groomsmen, how many other corsages and things we needed. We made out really well and found a lot of what we were looking for. I found all of the arrangements I wanted on Pinterest (which I have been on a lot lol). I already knew what I wanted, it was just a matter of finding the flowers.

I feel like we are making a lot of progress. I just need to make sure I have everyone's correct address and making sure I'm not forgetting anything lol. I'm not going crazy just yet lol. 

So that is it for another wedding planning update. How did you stay organized when you planned your wedding? Hope you enjoy this week and see you Thursday!

I miss watching football on Sunday! This Superbowl should be a pretty good game.

My son is so into Michael Jackson now. He watches his videos and tries dancing like him. I love it!


  1. I thought the wedding registries were really over whelming but my cousin went with us and helped us out back when I was engaged. I think DIY centerpieces are the way to go! Def a smart way to cut costs. I wish i did that lol

    1. Yea it was a bot overwhelming but glad it is out of the way finally lol! Thanks for reading Tanya!

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! 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…
