    Curly Hair Madness: Finding What Works

    This post is sponsored by Curls. Although I received free products to help facilitate my review, the thoughts expressed below are my own.  Growing up with a mom who didn’t understand how to manage curly hair was somewhat of a nightmare. From brushing my hair to styling it, there were a handful of hairstyles my parents would do. Most of the time, my hair was pulled back into a braid or parted to the sides with braids. On weekends, my hair was in a bun for ballet class and in a French braid during show season. Taming Curly Hair There was nothing more painful than having my mother try and brush my…

    Add Self-Care To Your Daily Routine

    This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Caring for others is part of a magical handbook of being a parent, but what we fail to remember is that caring for yourself is just as important.

    The Mommy Uniform

    I’ve always joked about the clothing items I wear on a daily basis, and it’s time I shared it with my readers. I won’t be surprised if you wear something similar.  Getting dressed for work means throwing on the same outfits throughout the week. Most people have a polished look going on when they enter the office, but when you’re your own boss, it means you wear whatever you like. Oftentimes, I walk around barefoot in sweats and a tee while communicating with clients throughout the day. Doesn’t that sound like a dream? Eh, it has its perks. Dealing With ‘Top Clients’ My number one clients are the kids, they…
