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.
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.
Who Am I?
