On a personal note....

We are 6 days away from Christmas and I haven't finished my shopping yet!! I will most likely be out this weekend with the other last minute shoppers lol! We finally got our tree up in the house and I just wanted it to be simple this year. 

I don't know how some people do daily vloging but kudos to them because Vlogmas is tiring lol. I am getting through it but it is a lot editing almost every night. I can say that I did it this year, not too sure if I will next year lol but I'll continue with occasional vlogs. 

I am so exciting about how things are starting to come together and fall into place. I am grateful for staying in a positive space and kept pushing myself to keep going. There were plenty of times that I wanted to give up but the hard work is starting to pay off. I'm just excited for these opportunities and new doors that are opening. I have been really working to improve Naturalle Drea and myself and it can only get better from here. I have been up many late nights with writer's block, technical issues, tears, frustrations and doubt but I pushed past all those things and kept going. 

I know that next year is going to bring more good things, opportunities and so much more positive vibes. I love this positive space I've grown into, sometimes I have to catch myself but it feels good. 

Hopefully you guys are ending this year on a good note or will start next year with something to look forward to. I will have post Thursday and Friday and will be taking a break until the new year. 

Have a great rest if the week and see you guys Thursday!!

HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT MY NOVEMBER ONYX BOX??

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.



Eyes

(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. 

Face

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.








BK Girls Night Out and NY Vlog

Last Saturday, I had an amazing time in New York. I was initially going to the BK Girls Night Out event and saw that Alissa Ashley was having a meet and greet at the ELF store in Times Square. I had to go because she's one of my favorite YouTubers and I wanted to support her collab with Elf. We were able to purchase her lip gloss before it launched during the meet and greet. She is such a sweet person and really pretty in person. You'll see in the vlog what else I purchased at the Elf store. 

I had some time in between events so I stopped to get some coffee...and it wasn't Starbucks lol. I stopped by Pret and had a really good Pumpkin Spice Latte. I also had a breakfast sandwich and just enjoyed sitting and city watching lol.

I walked around the city for a little bit before it was time to head to Brooklyn. It was fun taking the subway and figuring out what train to take. Thank goodness for Google Maps lol. I didn't get too lost, I was just on the wrong side of the tra…
