Happily Ever Johnson: Wedding Day Hair

We are really getting down to the wire here!! It is starting to get a little stressful with the little details and making sure we have everything. I just can't wait until the big day! Everyone has been asking me what I plan on doing with my hair for the wedding. I knew I was not going to straighten it and was going to base my hair style from what my dress looked like. I also plan on doing my hair myself! Yes I know I could go to a salon and have it done professionally but I do my own hair anyway and have been really excited to try different styles. I know that I wanted some kind of updo and something that will go with the veil I am wearing. I tried out 3 different styles over the past couple of weeks.  This post is picture heavy so you may want to grab a snack. 

Hair Trial #1

For this style I was thinking on having big, curly hair in the front and the rest of my hair twisted. I had a time at first trying to figure out how to part my hair and how big to make the twist.

I also remixed this first style because the crazy weather destroyed the front of my hair and I retwisted the front of my hair and swooped it to the side. This is how I wore my hair for the bridal shower.

Hair Trial #2

For this style, I did the flat twist in the back again and did individual twist in the front. I figured that I had to part the twist in the back different and make them a little smaller than before. I couldn't decide how I wanted the front to look so I styled it three different ways. 

Hair Trial #3

This style I wanted to try something a little different. I added hair to this style and honestly didn't know where I was going with this one. I just kind of did it and liked how it turned out. I am currently over all these bobby pins in my hair lol!! 

I may try one more style before deciding on which one. The first two hairstyles took me about an hour to do and the last one took an hour and a half. I have been having so much fun with this and can't wait to show you guys which one I choose for the big day. Which style did you like the most? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy the rest of the week and see you guys Thursday!

I tried the new Midnight Mint Mocha frap and Starbucks and I actually like it.

    1. Thank you Elle! It will be a hard decision lol!

  3. I like the first one with the twisted front as well, the side swept style frames your face beautifully and with the veil on top, I think it would look great and will stay put all day til night hehehe! Thanks for sharing this, can't wait to see more!

  4. I love them all especially #3

  5. You rock them all, but I especially like the very last style. You'll be a beautiful bride no matter how you wear your hair.

  6. My favorite hair style is the one with you wearing the black/white striped dress or top.

    1. Everyone seems to like that one or the last style! Thank you Tanya!

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! 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…
