Fro Butter African Black Soap Review and Demo

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed time with family. I had so much fun with family and did a little too much shopping lol. I'll be sharing my Black Friday haul soon. Today I am sharing a demo and review of Fro Butter's African Black Soap!

I normally use African Black soap to cleanse my face and body but you can also use this to wash your hair! Directly from the Fro Butter site, This African Black Soap has been resourced from Ghana and infused with Shea Butter and is 100 % natural. It contains no additives, fragrance and is vegan. It is a natural source of Vitamin A, E and Iron. African Black Soap is used for cosmetic uses and can be lathered, to be used as a shampoo.
I was a little skeptical at first to use this to wash my hair thinking it would dry my hair out but I was wrong! This soap really cleansed my scalp, left my hair feeling super soft and made it so easy to detangle my hair. I was so impressed and blown away. I think this is one of new favo…

Sephora VIB Haul

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday! I love the time to spend with family and eat most of the day lol. Today I am sharing what I got during the Sephora VIB sale. I didn't want to go too crazy but excited about the stuff I got! 

So that is it for my haul. Did you shop the VIB sale? What did you get? 
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and enjoys this time with family and friends. I will see you guys Tuesday!!


Friday Fun and Rocky Run

I guess I am getting myself ready for Vlogmas this year lol. I'm excited about it but don't think I'll be posting a video everyday but I'll have some kind of schedule. Today I am sharing another day with my son and the Rocky Run my husband and I did last Saturday. It was so cold that day and glad we purchased warmers for our hands and feet. They really came in handy. Hope you enjoy!

Hope you guys have a great weekend and see you Tuesday!!
~**Drea Notes**~
My son now needs a third page to write out his Christmas list. Help us lol!
I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! I'm excited!

Fun Thursday Vlog

My son had one of those weird weeks were he only had school Monday and Wednesday becuase of the election and teacher convention. I like when I get the chance to take off with him and hang out. He really enjoys that. Last week, he hung out to pick up the packets for the race and I needed him to burn some of that energy. Check out what we did last Thursday!

Hope you enjoyed our fun day. What do you like to do on your days off? See you guys tomorrow!

Thankful Everyday

I survived the Rocky Run! It was so cold that day and I made it! I will actually train next time I have a race lol! I hope you guys don't mind these personal post but I just felt like writing a lot more lately.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! When did that sneak up on us? Next time we know, Christmas will be here and then 2018!! It is crazy how this year has gone by so fast. This time last year I was counting down until my wedding and we're coming up on 6 months in December! 
 It just seems like this is the only time of the year that people are thankful and very giving. I know it is the season of that but what about the rest of the year? You should be thankful all year for everything, even the small things. It really didn't hit me until adulthood about being thankful for everything. There were moments where I wasn't working and looking like crazy for a job but I was thankful to still have a roof over my head and food to eat. I was thankful when I was w…

Just felt like writing....

At least once or twice week, I look at my blog and YouTube channel and debate if I want to keep going. I admit to looking at others and wondering what I'm not doing or how can I get there. I know I'm not supposed to look at others and stay on my own path. I know that success comes when it is your turn but sometimes it can get frustrating. You can get discouraged at times and want to throw in the towel.
I remember the promise I made to myself when I started this blog not to quit or give up. I started a blog before this one and after about a couple weeks I deleted it because I impatient. I had to learn how to be patient and wait for things. I thought it was supposed to be instant where people would read and comment. A few months later, Naturalle Drea was created and it was hard to keep going. It was hard at first to not want to shut everything down again but the more I was writing and started recording videos, the more I wanted to keep going. All the views and comment worries w…

Blossoming to Grow

During the months of September and October, I took this 4 week writing course called In Bloom. I have been looking for a writing course to help improve my writing and blogging skills. I came across Write Laugh Dream by Ashley Coleman on Instagram and first signed up for the Writers Write WLD series. It was a four week course where you were given daily prompts and you wrote something to finish the thought. I really enjoyed writing daily and just making myself think about how to finish the prompt.
After the series was over, Ashley reached out about signing up for a pilot session of In Bloom. This was another four week course but it was more interactive than the previous series. There was a video call once a week as well as a workbook for the course. During the first week was an introduction of the course, introductions of everyone and what we would be writing about. The goal at the end of the course was to help us to improve our writing and create a writing piece. I was excited to jump…

On A Personal Note...

I was supposed to have a video up today but I don't think you want to hear me sneezing and sniffling through the whole thing lol. This weather is crazy, its hot, then cold then hot again and of course I get sick lol. I'll have those videos up tomorrow but I wanted to get something up today.
 I always get inspired to write when good or bad things happen. The other day I met up with some friends to just catch up and chat about life, motherhood, marriage and our businesses. It just felt good to be around those like minded people who want to see you succeed, help you grow, give advice, bounce ideas off of each other and so on. It just felt good to be in a positive space with them and realizing that I need to surround myself with more people like that. I need to be around people who have that positive mindset, who actually support you, gives you advice, constructive criticism and I do the same for them.
 I feel like everyone could benefit from having that positivity around them. I…
