Shopping My Beauty Samples

I hope everyone had a great weekend. My son was so excited about the Eater bunny and eating jelly beans lol. We make sure that he knows the real meaning of these holidays and its not just about the candy and presents. Today I am sharing a few reviews from my beauty stash. Let's get into the reviews!

You Be Natural Botanical Black Jamaican Castor Oil Scalp Soother Ointment

Box It Came From: Cocotique
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 8.98
Review: I could not wait to use this. My scalp gets really itchy inbetween washes and I look for something to help. Oils can sometimes weigh my hair down and I forget that I have dry shampoo around lol. This really helped relieve and sooth my itchy scalp. It has a pretty light scent and very lightweight. I would purchase this again. 

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water Gel Toner

Box It Came From: Sephora
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 55.00
Review: I redeemed this as a 100 point perk at Sephora. I have heard so much about this company and really wanted to try them out. I really like this toner. It does have a strong scent but it goes away. It does help with controlling the oil and helps keep my skin matte. You have to be careful not to use too many mattifying products with this together, it will dry out your skin. I think I would probably repurchase if it wasn't out of my price range lol. 

Promise Organic Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Facial Lotion

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 14.99
Review: This moisturizer came to the rescue the past couple weeks. I ran out of my current one and my skin was not staying moisturized with one that I used previously. I found this one in my stash and fell in love. It kept my skin so soft and moisturized all day. It is very lightweight and feels amazing on the skin. I think I would purchase this again. Plus I love that it is 100% natural and parban free. 

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 79.00
Review: You guys know I love this brand and this is another favorite. I have loved everything that I've tried from this brand. Dr. Brandt has amazing products that really work with your skin and just improve the appearance of it. I may bring myself one day to purchase a full size product from them. 

LottaBody Control Me Edge Control Mini

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 2.99
Review: I love the convenience of this edge control, you can throw it in your purse and go. It smells so good and I really like this one. It lays my edges down for the whole day, doesn't flake and doesn't give a crunchy, hard feeling. I would purchase this again.

Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 35.00
Review: I really like the concept behind this eyeshadow quad. You can either order a pre made palette or create your own. This one was created and I love it. This color scheme screams Fall but I feel like I can wear these during any season. The pigmentation of these shadows are okay, you do have to build them up a little but love the color pay off. I would get more of these shadows. Here is a look I created wearing most of the colors in this palette. 

So that is it for my beauty samples. Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday!!



  1. I hear great things about Sunday Riley but its so expensive! I love the Dr Brandt scrub but so pricey too! That Doucce palette looks pretty but I'm all about pigmentation so I woul def need to swatch it first before purchasing. THanks for sharing!

    1. I know! Maybe one day I can bring myself to purchase something one day lol!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
