Today I want to talk to you about friendship. As a woman, it's okay to demand the type of friendship that you deserve. In fact, it's sometimes necessary. I will talk more about this and more in today's post. Should we, as grown ass women, be asking demanding things from
Hello my pretties! I hope you've had a successful journey thus far. Decluttering your life isn't easy. We all struggle with different areas. This week, my mental declutter has been the most successful. I've reached a good mental state in regards to my career path. Owning your own business can be very
As a busy woman, I find my moments of "Me Time" to be few and far between. One of my goals this year was to dedicate more time to myself. I find it difficult to do when I have mountains of responsibility at home and in my career. I'm sure
Last week, I told you about my new found inspiration to declutter my life physically, mentally, and emotionally. I'll admit, this Declutter Challenge hasn't been easy. The first few days I went through a series of ups and downs. The good news is that I've finally found my groove. It just took a
Inspiration is the first step toward decluttering your life and hopefully that inspiration comes from this post. I want to tell you all about the steps I'm taking to declutter every aspect of my life and how you can too!
We're pet parents. That means we've adopted a furry little creature (or a few) and made our home – their home. If you're anything like me, you let them get away with just about anything. You definitely allow them to get away with more than your children do. I let my
ADMIT IT! You've been ugly crying every Tuesday for the past few weeks! This drama series is taking over the world! -- Why This Is Us is making women all over the country UGLY CRY! #ThisIsUs | Women and Their Pretties
Castaway Cay 5k - Need to knowWhether you run or not, I highly recommend doing the Castaway Cay 5k for the simple fact that it's free. You might already know that Disney runs can cost a pretty penny, but not this one. You might as well take advantage of an opportunity to run around a beautiful island.
This post was brought to you in partnership with SearchRx. One thing that disgusts me in this country is how expensive our health coverage is. We pay bucket loads of money for doctor visits, tests, and then just when we think we're all done – we pay more for our
My life is a constant river of reflection. Not a day passes without me reflecting on the day before. I think of situations I could have handled better and I acknowledge those that I managed well. I do all that I can to nourish every ounce of my being. A strong mind, body, & spirit
Well, my friends. I'm back on Nutrisystem again. My journey in 2015 was challenging, but so rewarding. After 3 months of Nutrisystem and my new lifestyle choices, I lost a total of 18 lbs – without working out at all. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. My confidence
Social Media. It has a bit of a stigma attached to it these days, with good reason. A few things we all think of when social media is mentioned are: funny memes, cat videos, addiction, bullying, and gossip. Is that all social media has to offer? Is it only beneficial
Today I am reflecting on everything I accomplished in 2016. We've come to the end of the road and I've got a lot to be thankful for. It was a year full of traveling, writing, networking, and lots of love. When 2016 began, I told myself that it was going to be an
Thank you to Upthere for sponsoring this post. I wish a service like Upthere was provided when I was a kid. although, I probably wouldn't have accepted it. Let me explain... I've always been the photographer in my family. I remember being a kid and taking photos of absolutely everything.
Let's face it. Sometimes, life gets the best of us. We aren't the perfect women, wives, mothers, or children. It's so easy to let our responsibilities take center stage. We are so focused on making sure everything is so perfect, that we lack balance on the family front. Quality family time is
The smell of pine always awakens my happiest memories. I think of the years that I went searching for the perfect Christmas tree. I still remember when I decided that an artificial tree would replace the real thing. It's much easier in Florida, when all of the real trees are overpriced
When word of the Loving movie first came out, I had no idea what it was about. Like most Americans, I had never heard of the Lovings. I didn't know that this incredibly couple help shaped the country that I love. I didn't realize that it was because of them, that I am allowed to marry the man that I love. Their story is like no other because the Lovings weren't an interracial couple fighting for the freedoms of America. They were simply a couple, a family, that fought for their right to live and love together – in the land of the free.
Before I tell you anything else, I must let you know that I am the future Mrs. Claus. I have always cherished the feeling that Christmas gives me. I spend the entire year waiting for Christmas because it's always been such a special time for my family. We gather together,
Last year we were able to donate over 150 toys and books to over 50 families! We felt so very thankful to help families over the holidays, so we are doing it again this year! Please check out the rules and requirements below for more information. Happy holidays!
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Loving actress, Terri Abney, along with the lead actors and Director of the Loving film. We talked to all of them about bringing the Loving story back to life. This is a very touching story because it's true. It's the true story of the Lovings, who were sentenced to prison or to leave the state simply because they were an interracial couple that got married. With the hate and discrimination this still exists, this movie couldn't have released at a better time. There's a lot that we need to talk about and Terri Abney has a very important message for this generation about love, acceptance, and speaking out.
