Yesterday I celebrated my 24th birthday. Like really.... I've been walking this Earth for 24 years exactly! I'm ANOTHER year closer to 30 and my sweet 16 feels like it was just 3 months ago. Time truly does fly.

My journey of being a mom these past 8 months have been a great learning experience for me for many reasons. When I chose to pursue attachment parenting, that was something I strongly wanted - so naturally, breastfeeding was to be apart of that. Having that unbreakable bond is important to me.

I have to say that this year so far has been wonderful in the world of bloggers for me. I'm come in contact with some pretty amazing ladies! Social media doesn't have to be all bad news and drama- it's really allowed me to make great connections and new friendships online.

Some of you may not be aware that I once attended cosmetology school.  My college experiences are pretty vast, if I say so myself. I enjoyed my time there and I definitely learned some great things that stood by my side.

About two months ago I got a new phone! I honestly didn't expect to go with a different brand but I did anyway. I previously gave my electronic life to the Samsung Note 2, which I had since July 2013. It was a great phone.

You would think I would have upgraded and got the Note 5 or whatever but there's a limit to a screen size that I'll settle for. That Note 5 may as well be a table notebook. No thanks.

I am in a serial relationship with a jar, believe it or not. Coconut oil is the Alfredo sauce to my pasta. I love everything about it. I also have many, MANY uses for it. I even shared how I use it for baby. Some strange and others totally normal! Ha!

Spring is legit right around the corner. I'm in Georgia and the heat had already made several appearances, which I am definitely not looking forward to dealing with for the next few months. My 24th birthday is also in two weeks and I have no clue what to do with my life that day other than catch up on sleep.

There were many things I didn't get to wear this winter. Mostly shoes I wanted to rip the runway in but never got the chance to. I blame me not really wanting to leave out the house enough to dress up. My top 3 that I wish I would have worn I purchased from JustFab, my favorite place for bag and shoe lovers to splurge on a dime.


Motherhood has been quite the journey these past few months for me. My Channing man turns 8 months on the 21st and I can NOT believe how quick time has already flown. I've learned so much and even discovered a few things about myself. Being a mom is REAL!

For all you new moms out there, here are 3 things you're sure to need to know for when your little one needs you most. Thank me later.

If you've spent many hours searching the stores for bras that best suit your figure and style, this is for you. I've always had issues with finding the perfect bra for me for as long as I can remember. Let's be real, it's not as easy as it looks and many of us are guilty of wearing bras that are both the wrong size and fit. Shameful, right?

In light of celebrating the essence of all black beauty via social media yesterday, scrolling through my Twitter account brought on an urgent spark of inspiration to me. I wrote somewhat of a short, literary piece for you to enjoy.

Black beauty broke the internet and all the beautiful faces of both men, women, and children unapologetically displaying their pride for their melanin was defining.

Every girl has her own views as to what essentials should be. I personally have various sets of them. Since 2015 is my year to explore the world of minimalism, letting go of MANY things is a tedious task for me.

It's been a long..long time coming but I knooooow a change is gonna come! Oh! I haven't shared a beauty-related post in a while and I felt it was time to do so. I often get tons of compliments from people whenever I decide to go the extra mile to put on makeup. I usually have more fun with my eyes so what better post than to share my 3 favorite eye tools, right?
