Welcome To 2017...No Resolutions Here

Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with family and friends! I am not ready to go back to work lol! I really enjoyed being about to spend Christmas break with my son. We had so much fun and I even got back into the gym!! This wedding is in 6 months and I want to be snatched and slaying down the aisle lol! (But I'm serious, I will be slaying tho lol). It was the perfect time to hop back in the very now crowded gym and it felt so good. I just need to stay away from all the junk food I love so much (especially when people bring donuts into work) and I'll be good. I'm so thankful to be seeing another year and starting it off in a good way. 2016 was pretty interesting and I have learned a lot about myself. I went through a lot of emotional ups and downs and learned so much about the power of being patient and waiting on things to happen when they are supposed to. Everyone has their own path and trying to jump on someone else's path will take you off course. I am just happy for the little things in life and excited for what 2017 has in store. I'll update you guys on the wedding stuff soon but things are coming together. I used to make resolutions every year about what I'm going to do, how I'm going to change and so on. Life is unpredictable and you don't know what will happen in the new year. Honestly, I forgot about my resolutions and didn't stick to them. I do have my monthly goals on here and it is easier for me to complete then trying to chase something for a year that I know may not happen or can be out of my control. I know for a fact that I want to stay in my positive mind and spread that around like glitter lol. I know I want to read more books and be a better Drea this year. I know there are some things I can improve on and it takes time. I'm still a work in progress and proud of where I am today. I'm just excited for year for obvious reasons lol and just where it will take me and my family. See you guys Thursday!!

Have you seen the show This Is Us?? is so good. We caught up on all the episodes, If you haven't seen it, you should!

I need to take week vacations more often, I loved the break from work and I didn't think about it once until it was time to go back lol! 


  1. I agree, coming up with a list of goals is pretty hard to stick to for the most part but the two that I really plan to focus on are being more positive in life and looking for a new job. Happy New Year!

    1. I like the focus on being more positive. It can be hard when a lot of things are going on. Thanks for reading Tanya and good luck on the job search!

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.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
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. 

(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
