    Celebrating Journee

    Happy Halloween everyone!!! I know I’m two days early but life has been hectic lately with all the Halloween parties, fall festivals and Journee’s birthday (she’s a Halloween baby you know!) that’s right a full blood Spooky Scorpio of the night, and her attitude shows it! Lol   Now if you were watching my Instagram stories you can probably tell, we had baby girls birthday party this past Saturday. It was definitely Harry Potter themed. I will admit to this, I’m a last minute event planner which is why I’m not in that line of  business. I waited to long to get her outfit together and someone fell through so…

    Failing

    So today’s blog is about me sharing how I deal with being human and a mother. I know it’s a weird thing right ? Being human? Being a mom? Well let’s get into it…….every single day I play this movie in my head over the decisions I have made and how they effect my children. I think about the things I did wrong, the ways I handled certain situations, did I love on them enough? Did I tell them I love them enough?  Did I forget something that they needed or wanted to do? All these thoughts especially came to mind this past weekend when I realized that I forgot…

    Mommy’s Budget Shopping

    This past weekend I decided to go shopping for my kids because my daughter is out growing everything and my son is getting taller by the day not to mention his normal wear and tear on all his school clothes. Now being honest I really don’t have a lot of money to spend on clothes right now but as you will soon find out I am the budget queen. I will always figure out a way to have what I need and a little but if what I want.  So let me tell you about a little secret……….Consignment shops!!!! They are everywhere all you have to do is look! Here…

    You missed me?

    So I have been missing in action for almost two months now and you’re probably wondering what I’ve been doing! If you’ve paid attention to my Instagram then you probably know that I’ve been working on my clothing brand Tribe of Melanin. Well I’ve finally Launched it and I’m so proud of myself and the products I’ve come up with. It took me almost a year to buy my business license, buy my logo, my merchandise designs, creating my online shop, my business social media accounts and so much more. It’s been so hectic but it’s just the beginning of a long road ahead of being a entrepreneur.    In…

    It’s my birthday!

    TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! Buuuuuutttt since I have to work today I opted to celebrate this past weekend. I’m finally 30 and it feels good, I’m alive, I’m breathing. God gave me another year, another day to live and that’s a lot to be thankful for.  Saturday instead of going to the club like I originally thought about we went out to dinner. Applebee’s was AHH-mazing, the food was great and our waitress was wonderful, I had a great time with family and friends which was all I wanted. I had a half rack of ribs, bacon Macaroni, French fries and mozzarella sticks, which are my fave!! Sunday I woke…

    Journaling

    Having a space to write your most intimate feelings when your not particularly up for sharing them with the world is very important to me. I have so many unspoken thoughts that I’ve never said to people whom I probably should, and I just haven’t found the flow to turn them into poetry. I’ve been feeling really sad and alone lately and I feel like I don’t have someone to express myself to so I started back writing in my journal. I feel like crying sometimes and I haven’t been completely, satisfied with my life, yes I work very hard to keep a straight face and project positivity but it’s…

    Transparency

    So being that my blog is a personal blog I thought I would take this intimacy thing just a little bit further by sharing some of my most private thoughts and stories about myself.  lets start off with how I didn’t always love my complexion. This is something I didn’t let be known, instead I kept it to myself. growing up all the boys that I liked always went for the lighter skinned girls or the white girls. That’s just how it was. Thank God I an amazing grandmother who always told me how beautiful I was and taught me self love. Yea, Grandma Guice was dope, she always uplifted…
