On a personal note.....

It feels like time is going by too fast. I can't believe that my wedding will be here next month and I'm keeping pretty calm (when on the inside I'm screaming and running with my hands in the air)! I feel like I've been in wedding planning mode for so long, I won't know what to do with myself afterwards lol. The new job is going well so far. There were a few times I started to doubt myself in the position because things got a little rough and I felt like I had to be an expert at it. I felt like I had to prove something because I was finally given this opportunity and wanted to show that I could do this job. I didn't want to make mistakes and felt like I had to be somewhat perfect. I had to remind myself that there is not such thing as being perfect, it is okay not to know everything at once. I had to remember that things take time and you can't rush things. There is still so much to learn and I had to remind myself that they did pick the right person for this job. I am doing a pretty good job so far and so proud of that. I feel like things are starting to fall into place and looking good. There are so many things I want to and accomplish personally and professionally. I only want to be successful and not have any regrets on not stepping out on faith and taking that risk. All I can do is try and if it doesn't work out, it is okay, at least I gave it a try. I never know what could come of something if I don't take a risk. I'm just so excited for the new role in my life and actually going by a new last name! I've been practicing my new signature lol. I know it is going to be a bit of an adjustment but I know we will be happy and love this journey together. Any recommendations for a camera to film with? I'm in the market for a new one and waiting until after the wedding to purchase one. I know there are so many out there but just want one I can record videos and vlog with. I'm just glad that I am in a good place and being set up for success. I'm looking forward to everything that is coming my way.


**~Drea Notes~**

There are so many good movies that are coming out this Summer. My son is super excited about all the kid ones lol!

I'm looking forward to seeing what new Summer T.V shows are coming out. I'm looking forward to Animal Kingdom and I need to catch up on Suits. What Summer shows do you watch?


  1. I'm glad you are finally adjusting to your new job and happy! You must be SO excited for your wedding to come!

    1. Thanks Tanya! I really am and trying not to stress lol!

  2. Sounds like things are going well for you Drea! I'm so happy for you! You're wedding is quickly approaching! I know this is an exciting time for you and your loved ones!

  3. I remember back in HS when I was practicing signatures with my crush's last name hehehe. I never thought to practice before I got married lol! I'm glad everything's going well with the new job, and yes don't be afraid to say I don't know - it's better to let them know than pretend you do and mess up later - as what hubby has told me before too =)

    1. Lol I did the same thing in HS! I will always ask a million questions until I understand something. Thanks for reading Jackie!

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…
