Expecting Mamas With Little Monsters
Whether your second pregnancy was planned or a pleasant surprise, being pregnant while caring for a toddler is no easy task. On top of first trimester fatigue you will also be dealing with daily temper tantrums. Surviving pregnancy with a toddler in tow and keeping your sanity will soon become your number one priority, trust me.
My daughter has a new found love of stickers. She is constantly wanting to play with her sticker book but at her age, she isn’t quite skilled yet in taking the stickers out on her own. I was trying to find an easier way to let her play with stickers, without having to help her every 2 seconds to get a new sticker out. That’s where I got the idea of making her a felt board for her room.
The Lasting Impression of Words
Have you ever heard that the way you speak to your child becomes their inner voice? Well, this is something I absolutely believe in. I think we, as parents, need to remember this phrase daily and put it into practice in the way we talk to our children.

I went to see Black Panther because I’m a fan of Marvel, but I was specifically drawn to see it because of it’s cast. In my life, I’ve never seen a movie that portrayed black characters in such a beautiful light. Where black women were warriors and inventors, and where black men were leaders and superhero’s.
In honor of Black History Month, I thought I’d share some of my favorite beauty brands created by black women. It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, red, or purple, these brands have something for everybody. So, if you’re in the market for new beauty products or looking for new cosmetic brands to support, add these amazing brands to your list.
How Far I’ll Go
I feel like this is very appropriate to write about as I currently make my checklist and scramble to get things together for my family’s upcoming trip. This time around it will be a 4 hour car-ride following a 2 hour plane-ride but lucky for us, this isn’t our first go-round traveling with baby.

Ok, so I hate using the word “cheap” but there really is no other way to describe me when it comes to spending money. I like to shop but I like saving money more. Believe me when I say that I’m all about a good deal and using coupons (no one is ever too good to use coupons).
Finding Your Happiness
The day I became a mother was the greatest day of my life, hands down. I’d never felt such happiness before, but, little did I know it would only last for so long. Before you take this the wrong way, understand that after having a baby your hormones and emotions are running rampant, literally.

Whether you’re a new mom, or a seasoned one, sometimes you just need to hear every once in awhile that you are enough. That the long hours you spend taking care of your kids or working so that your children will never go without is enough.
