Being patient is key....

My fiance sent this to me a while ago on Instagram and I have reposted this myself. (And excuse the language in this one)

This really spoke to me and I have been quiet about a few things that have been going on. I don't tell everyone moves that I'm making because there are those who will try to talk you out of it or tell you that you can't accomplish that. 

I can finally say that after a lot of hard work, I got a promotion at work!!! I wanted to wait until it was official but I am super excited for this new job! I actually applied for this job three times and I guess third time is the charm. After this position came up again, I was so over it and ready to give into defeat. People understood my reasoning but encouraged me not to give up so easily. I really, really appreciate those that encouraged me, didn't let me give up and talked me out of not trying again. My manager even helped me prep for the interview which I went in more confidently and did so well. I can't express what it means to have people who see your potential and want to see you do better and are willing to help you get to the next level. I am truly grateful and just so happy. I have worked so hard and hard work really pays off. Also being patient and waiting for your turn. I was just wondering why everyone else was moving up, getting promotions and I'm still sitting here. It wasn't my time yet and I'm glad I have learned to be so patient and wait, look what happened! 

I wanted to tell any of you ready to give into defeat, ready to give up.......KEEP GOING AND DON'T GIVE UP! I can truly attest to it and know how it feels. You have to go through the storm to get to the sunshine and rainbows. I hope this encouraged some of you and motivated some of you to give it that extra push. Have a great weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!!

My son already has a loose tooth! I'm not ready for him to grow up! Lol!

We are going for a tasting this weekend and I'm excited. Hopefully we can decide on the menu. It is getting so close!!


  1. Congrats on your promotion Drea! How exciting! I'm like that too sometimes when I'm over something and feel like quiting, I keep going. I usually stay quiet about my goals as well. Isn't it sad how people can try to be negative influences when you want to accomplish goals?! I know not everyone is like that, but in life you would think we all should want each other to make it and be successful. Great post!

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.

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…
