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!!



  1. I think that's wondeful that you're staying in a positive space Drea! Omgosh I can relate to so much you're saying about blogging. It can be hard work, but I love blogging so much. I wrote a similar post to this my reflections 2017 post and I feel like things are falling into place in my life too. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and here's to a wonderful 2018!

  2. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. When you have a happy moment treasure it so when times get tough you can reflect on something positive.

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
