On A Personal Note...

I sat here looking at a blank screen for a while trying to figure out how to start this post lol. It happens sometimes when you feel a little stuck on how to start. I've been adjusting a lot to my new position and duties at work. I love being closer to home and saving money traveling in state. I can now be home to do homework and have dinner with my family. I can also cook dinner if I want. I'm just so thankful that worked really hard to get into this position and didn't give up. I wanted more of a challenge and wanted something different. I have been really focused on learning this position, asking a lot of questions, making sure I understand everything and so on. When I first started, I kind of knew about the position from my previous position and knew what I was about to step into. I had people tell me about the position and how it can be and wanted to make sure I could handle it. I know people meant well but once someone doubts I can do something, I feel like I need to prove people wrong. I know my abilities and what I'm capable of, if I know I can do it, I'm going to show you. I'll admit it was a bit overwhelming at first because of all the information I had to know, things I had to remember, important reports and know how to juggle my responsibilities and time. I'm pretty much use to that type of environment from previous positions that I have held. As I started to do work on my own, I started to feel more confident and stopped second guessing myself. I have support when I need it and I'm grateful for that. I know you have heard that quote that if your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough. When I got this promotion, it scared me at first. It scared me that I actually made something happen, I got to move up, I stayed patient and it paid off. Then I started to wonder if I could really do this, would I be good and it hit me that things were going to be fine, I asked for this and HE would not give me anything I was not ready for. I'm glad it scared me and made me uncomfortable because it is forcing me to step up and show them that they made the right choice. So far, I'm doing well and getting a lot of positive feedback. It feels good that I am excelling so far and I love it. I am just so grateful for the opportunity. 
I hope you guys have a great weekend and see you Tuesday!!

I tried the new Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato from Starbucks and it is very tasty! I like it!

I need to find time to read again, I have a couple books waiting for me lol.

I have really gotten into listening to Podcast while at work. I know I'm late but I just love how it is motivating me. I'm currently listing to Life According To Her and #Goals. Go check them out!


  1. Congratulations on your promotion! I always admire you for pushing yourself all the time - working, finishing school, planning a wedding and taking care of your li'l one!

    1. Thank you so much Jackie! I still wonder how I do it all lol!

  2. That is so great that you are doing well in your new position. I'm happy for you. I need to get a new job so bad but scared and at the same time nothing is jumping out to me as interesting when I look.

    1. Thank you Tanya! Job hunting can be hard but I hope you find something soon.

  3. Congratulations on your promotion Drea! Hard works always pays off and more importantly you never gave up! I'm learning for that every struggle or challenge in life, it's usually for a bigger purpose. 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.


(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.

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…
