What About Your Friends??

I had another post scheduled for today but this was on my heart to write about. I was kinda inspired over the past couple of months with this and also after seeing Girl's Trip (which was really amazing by the way, go see it). Next to my relationship with my family, I cherish my friendships. Those are the people who know you best, won't steer you wrong, there to listen to you, give advice when you ask for it or not, the people who you can call up and have a great time with no matter what you are doing and those who push you to do and be better. In return you do the same for them. I've have some friendships come to an end in the past and have out grown some friends but I've been wondering how I can be a better friend or how we all can be better friends. I'll admit to not keep in touch with everyone all the time but it is good to check in on some of your friends, you never know what they may be going through. I am one to put on that facade and act like everything is peachy when I'm really not okay. I am one to hold things and not want to say anything but it is not good to do that. Your friends are there to help you. There were some friends that I did not know were going through certain stuff and I want to do a better job at reaching out more often, getting together more often and actually taking action on those plans instead of just talking about them. I have been really inspired by a lot of things lately and just want to do better in all areas of my life. I plan on getting out there more and networking with other influencers and bloggers, making those connections and relationships. I love the connections I have with other bloggers from previous events I have attended. I want to keep this positive vibe I have going and just keep making improvements. It is always good to make improvements, you only get better.

  1. Loved reading this post Drea! You know I'm somewhat like that myself, I put up facade like everything is fine when it's not. I think that's part of being human. I used to hear so many people say that you'll see who you're real friends are as you age. That's true, some friends you outgrow, and that's okay too. I keep my circle of friends pretty small, but nonetheless I'm glad and grateful for those I can truly call my friend. Wonderful post and insight!

    1. Thank you Pilar. It is important to keep those friends around that are in your best interest and you can truly call a friend.

  2. This is so true. Your girlfriends are SO IMPORTANT! I have drifted alot from mine for one reason or another such as people moving or having kids (which I don't). I do think its so important to stay in touch and be there for one another. Sometimes I feel like I keep more in touch with my blogger friends than my non blogger ones.

    1. It sometimes seems like your blogger friends understand you a little more but it is good to have that diverse group of friends. Thanks for reading 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.

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…
