Happily Ever Johnson: Finishing Touches and Bachelorette Fun

I can't believe in 6 days I'll be officially Mrs.Johnson!!! Time has flown by so fast, its crazy! It just seems like I was just starting to plan this wedding and now it will be here!! I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I'm out of wedding planning mode lol. I know you all have been enjoying this series so much and can't wait to show you guys everything! We are now down to the last little details and things to do. We had our finalization meeting a couple weeks ago and we went over everything that is going to happen that day, I finally gave over my seating chart because it was driving me crazy lol and just what we have to do next. We were doing a walk through of where the ceremony will take place and snapped this picture of my fiance standing where we will say I do.

 I felt a little something from me standing on the aisle and seeing him up there. It just felt so so-real, like this was really happening soon, 

Soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Johnson

After we had our meeting, we went out to test our signature drinks for the wedding. It is hard to tell if something is going to taste good by reading the ingredients and looking at a pretty picture. We both have very different taste when it comes to drinks, I'm not a fan of beer or bitter tasting liquors. I love my mixed, fruity drinks per say but loves a good Long Island lol! We both searched online and I think we found our drinks, now we just need to name them lol!


I've been doing a lot of DIY projects for this wedding. Etsy and any craft store has been my best friend for the past year and a half. I have been online for hours searching for stuff and ordering like crazy. First I started working on the Mr. and Mrs. sign that will go on the head table. I ordered this off of Etsy plain because it was less expensive to order with no paint or glitter. I just purchased glitter spray paint and loved how it turned out.

I also did my own table seating cards. This seating chart drove me crazy and glad that its done lol. I didn't want the typical cards and wanted something different. Searching through Pinterest, I came across this really creative table assignment with small succulent plants. I really liked the idea and decided to go with it. Here is a sample of what the cards will look like. I'm using a chalkboard marker to write the names and table numbers on each one. 

I have to pick up my dress soon and I was so excited to try it on and see it again. I took my mom with me and she loved it. They had to do another alteration and steam the dress again but can't wait to have it on for the big day.

Overall things are really starting to come together and its so exciting. I also had my bachelorette party about two weekends ago. I didn't know the location or what we were doing but I had so much fun .There was a lot of alcohol(and there really was a lot lol), laughter and fun the whole weekend.

I will have a post up tomorrow and will be taking a break after that. I plan on vlogging up to the big day and will post that sometime after the wedding. Thank you all for your suggestions, advice, kind words and support during this planning process. I am just waiting for the big day to finally get here!!

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…
