Mental Health Awareness Month

I love allergy season, says no one ever lol! I had planned on having a video up today but you guys don't want to hear me sneezing, sniffling and blowing my nose during the entire video lol! I guess with the warm weather comes the pollen and allergies lol.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and to be honest, for years I was not aware of this myself. It is important to bring awareness to mental health because you never know who may be going through it or having a tough time dealing with their health. Mental health is something that should not be taken lightly at all. If someone confides in you, please take them seriously and just be there. 

I learned so much from my blogger friend Ashley who runs Don't Die Afraid. She was not afraid to share her story and journey with everyone and it was pretty inspiring. Ashley is a big advocate for mental health and it is just amazing to see the work she is doing to bring awareness. It made me more aware of it and to open up about my bout with depression. She hosted an event two years ago called Let's Get Uncomfortable, Mental Health Makeover to bring awareness to mental health and it was such success. I was just blown away to hear everyone (men and women)  tell their personal stories about mental health and how they overcame it. You can see the BLOG POST HERE and VLOG RIGHT HERE!

I feel that it is important to share your journey and story of mental health, you never know who you could help or encourage to step forward and get the help they need. I want to help bring awareness myself and will share my story later this month. What are you doing this month to bring awareness to Mental Health??

Hope you enjoy your weekend and see you guys Tuesday!!


  1. Mental Health is so important. I've def have had some mental health issues over the past few years after going through so tough stuff and I must say seeing a therapist helped me alot. I'm still not perfect and make mistakes but have learned to deal with things differently. I always wonder about opening up regarding that topic but its very different than what I talk about on my blog.

    1. I always debated on talking about this but it may help someone else if you are brave enough to open up about it, Thanks for reading Tanya!

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…

Make Beauty Review*

Happy Friday beauty lovers! I hope you have been enjoying Winter again lol! I hope Mother Nature gets it together soon lol. Today I am bringing you another review powered by BrandBacker! *I was sent these products for testing purposes and this is my opinion after using. Let's get into the reviews!

I was pretty excited when I was picked for this campaign. I have tried a Make Beauty eyeshadow before and loved it. Honestly, I was expecting the samples to be a little bigger. I was a little disappointed in the lipstick sample, it was hard to use. It kept breaking when I was trying to apply it. Make Beauty is a very new company to me that I was introduced to through Birchbox.  They have just about everything from eyeshadows to contour kits. They also have a line for skincare as well.

Review on Country Life Maxi Hair Plus Biotin Vitamins

Back in February, I purchased these vitamins to try out and I finally finished the bottle lol. You can find my first post about these vitamins here.

I previously tried Biotin vitamins by Nature Made and you can see my review on those here. I read some where on Facebook that these were the dupe to the Hairfinity Vitamins that everyone is talking about. I wanted to see for myself how these vitamins worked. I read reviews before purchasing and saw nothing but great reviews except for one or two people saying they had a headache when they first started them.I love that these are Gluten-Free and Vegetarian capsules. The only thing about these vitamins is having to take four daily. I found it better for me to split them up. I would take two after breakfast and the remaining two during lunch. Sometimes I would forget to take the second set or forget them all together. I will say that I saw better results with these than with the Nature Made vitamins. My hair is fuller and has grown some. I d…
