Hello 2017

Hello my loves!

With only 6 hours left in the year, I am happy, excited and nervous. This year has gone by so quickly and a lot of good things have happened this year. 2016 for me was pretty great, but I'm looking forward to 2017. I feel like 2017 will be a much better year for me personally because I'll be working on a lot of things for myself. I don't really plan to have any resolutions this year, but rather a few goals and ideas that I want to accomplish in 2017.

In 2016 my son turned 2 years, my family and I moved to a better house in a better location, my brother went on tour to Africa and Italy, my other younger brother has been acing his classes and my baby sister has joined the National Honor Roll. Now, there hasn't been much for myself as I still haven't found a job, but I've been working hard as a stay-at-home mom (being a mother isn't necessarily a job, but mothers do work hard 24/7 with no breaks and no pay. I now know how my mother feels).

I'm looking forward for 2017. I want to work on myself spiritually, physically and emotionally this coming year. I want to do more things such as go out (when the weather is better) instead of being a homebody. I want to cook and bake more than usual. I want to continue looking for a job whether it's in the beauty industry or going back to working behind a desk. I want to get fit and gain weight (yes, there are people in the world who want to gain weight). I want to work on my freelance makeup artistry business and find something new to do business wise. I want to really get into wedding planning (that's a whole story in itself). I want to get closer to God. I want to work on my blog and YouTube channels.

2017 seems to have so much promise for me and I am excited. My son will be turning 3 in Feb. My bae and I will be going on 5 years together. I'll be turning 26 years old. Just a lot of great things.

I'm currently hanging with my bae and our son. I normally go to church with my family, but this year I'll be with my loves watching movies to bring the new year in. I did, however, get my hair done yesterday and it was a change. I got a cut, highlights and red rinse. It's a new look, shorter hair, but I am truly obsessing over it.

2016 goodbye. 2017 hello!!


Tea Haul #5 ft Chefs Limited and Simple Taste

Hello my loves!

Today's post is a tea haul sharing all the new teas, sweeteners and "equipment" I got. I am slowly, but surely becoming a tea drinker. I currently drink two cups of tea a day, but that may bump up to four cups a day pretty son. I'm trying to cut back on how much soda I drink and cut back on candy and drinking tea seems to be helping me out.

I went to Walmart and got a few teas and then I got two awesome products to review which are great hot drinks in general. I received the Chefs Limited Whistling Tea Kettle and the Simple Taste Electric Milk Frother.

I have been enjoying my Chefs Limited whistling tea kettle so much! It's makes making a cup of tea so much fun. Now, I do own a Kuerig 2.0 but for some reason using my tea kettle and hearing it whistle brings a different kind of experience to my tea drinking. The kettle is stainless steel and has a black body with silver hardware. It's so modern and simple. Love this kettle. The kettle retails for $39.99 USD on Amazon.

The Simple Taste electric milk frother is so freaking cool! I've never had a frother or even thought to frother my milk, but I am so happy I got this! It makes my cappuccinos and hot chocolates much better. I love frothing my milk and so does my two year old. In the evenings, since it's getting colder, we go into the kitchen and make caramel, white chocolate or french vanilla hot chocolates and he loves pressing the button to froth the milk. I also like how multi-purpose the frother is. It can be used on various types of drinks, for use in mixing sauces and even to whisk egg yolk. It's simply amazing. It retails of $12.99 USD on Amazon.

I just love a good tea. I'm hoping to even make orders with Teavana, Tea Forte and David's Tea soon. Thanks for sticking around to see the teas I purchased.

What tea are you currently sipping on?


Studio Gear Cosmetics Prime Objective Face Primer Review

Hello my loves!

Today's post is going to be a review on an awesome product by a company that is absolutely new to me. I was given the opportunity to try out a new face primer. Now, I'm not huge on primers for myself, but I do normally stick to my favorite 2-3 primers. However, this new primer has changed my love and made a home in my heart.

The primer I am talking about is the Prime Objective Skin Perfecting Face Primer by Studio Gear Cosmetics. If you have never heard of Studio Gear Cosmetics I will give you a bit of information about them.
