Happily Ever Johnson: Surprise Bridal Shower

I knew my bridal shower was coming up soon but didn't know when it was. I was wondering how they would get me out of the house and dressed for my bridal shower because most weekends, you can catch me without makeup and in comfy clothes lol. Well my Maid of Honor texted me one day last week and asked what I was doing Saturday. I responded that if you count laundry then I wasn't doing much lol. She said that she found a day party in New York to go to and wanted to know if I wanted to go. I said sure, the guys were going for their tux fitting that day anyway. She said cool and said what time we were leaving. I was pretty excited because I haven't been to New York in a while. It was Saturday and it was such a nice day. Funny thing is, I brought an outfit to wear to my bridal shower and put it on just in case that day. Even if it wasn't going on, I was still going to wear it again lol. My maid of honor picked me up and on the way she said she had to stop and make payment at the venue where another event was going to happen. We stopped there and she ran inside then came back out and said the manager was going to be while and to come in a wait with her inside of sitting outside in the car. I said sure and when I walked in the room and everyone yelled "Surprise!" I was truly surprised and was expecting my shower to be at another venue lol. 

They got me good lol! My family and bridesmaids did such an amazing job with the shower, I loved everything! I was so happy to see everyone! Here are some pictures of the decor around the venue. There was even a Mimosa bar lol!

The cupcakes were so good!

We played a lot of fun games, ate, took pictures and just had a good time. I loved how my favorite color was throughout the venue and decor, even my bridesmaids were wearing pink! My fiance' and some of the groomsmen came towards the end and he helped open gifts with me!

It was such an amazing day and I'm so thankful to everyone who came out and helped throw the shower. I didn't want to be traditional and wear white to my bridal shower lol. I had to be different. I got my outfit from Macy's and shoes from Call It Spring. I did my own makeup as well. 

We are one month away from the big day and we're getting excited! I'm down to getting the small details together and making sure we have everything in place! Enjoy the week and see you guys Thursday!!

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.

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!

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.

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…
