April 19th, 2018 at 12:02pm I gave birth to a beautiful chubby cheeked, 7 lbs and 12 oz. baby girl. She showed up with a head full of hair and a side eye that can still kill to this day. (LOL) She’s also my snuggle bug. We have been snuggling and hugging since she came into this world. I’m still not sure how 365 days have gone by already, but here we are on April 19th, 2019. Happy 1st birthday, Riley!Read More
How many of you or your children are on the natural hair journey? Taking care of natural hair can be a chore in itself, but it’s worth the work. My daughter started paying more attention to her hairstyles about a year ago. After I braided her hair she ran to the bathroom mirror to admire her hair and tell herself how beautiful she looks. This is when I decided to have a little more fun and switch her hairstyles up every week.
I post Jordyn’s new hairstyles on social media (Facebook and Instagram) on Mondays. The more styles I post the more people are interested in the hairstyles. On numerous occasions people have recreated the styles on their little ones and told me how much they love them. This is when I decided to keep track of her hairstyles to share with other parents for ideas.Read More
If you’re like myself and millions of other people around the world you are a fan of Starbucks. Well, at least one item on the Starbucks menu. I wouldn’t consider myself addicted like some people, but there is always one item on the menu drawing me in year round. Fall it’s the Pumpkin Spice latte or Frappuccino. Christmas season it’s the Cremé Brûlée latte or the Egg nog Frappuccino. Spring and summer it’s the Caramel Frappuccino. However, the one drink I love no matter the season is the Mango Drangonfruit Refresher. My sister got me hooked to it a little while back and it’s become one, of if not my absolutely favorite drink, on the Starbucks menu. It is for this reason I decided to create my own spin off of the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher. I used a few more tropical fruits and call it the Tropical Mango Refresher.Read More
Last weekend I dedicated a few hours of self-care to myself. I took a nice long bath, washed my hair, did a face mask, and drank a glass of wine. It was heavenly…while it lasted. About an hour and a half into my self-care session my oldest daughter, Jordyn, invited herself into the bathroom to ask me fifty questions. Oh, and to remind me that I’m a Mom of two small children, which means time to myself is limited. Ha!Read More
