Working Out with Confidence

*This post is sponsored by Poise Impressa,  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m letting you guys in on a little secret.  My bladder hasn’t been the same since I gave birth to Peyton almost 6 years ago.  Since having Harper it’s gotten even worse.   I can’t cough or sneeze with out peeing on myself.  I know, TMI.  I thought it happened to everyone until I shared my problem with a few people and they didn’t have the same problems.  I thought in for the rest of my life, I would have to wear those big bulky pads.  I’ve found a product, Impressa by Poise, that helps me to do things I want to do with out worrying about light bladder leakage without wearing a bulky pad.

All White Outfits You Already Own

I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by.  Memorial Day is almost here and Peyton’s last day of school is tomorrow! I’ll be the mother of a 1st grader!  Make it stop!  Memorial Day weekend starts the season of All White parties.  If you received an invite to Puffy’s all white party in the Hamptons, I’m here to help you out.  Instead of rocking a plain white dress like everyone else, I’ve found some mom friendly all white looks for inspiration.  The best part is you probably already have these pieces in your closet.

How Young Is Too Young for Extensions?

We love seeing cute pictures of little girls.  I’ve come across a few that after further inspection I notice the child may or may not be wearing extensions. If you’re like me, you may go comment creepin’ to only see folks ripping the mother apart for adding hair in this baby’s head. That got me to thinking…how young is too young for extensions?

Mommy & Me in Suakoko Betty

Would you believe me if I told you I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted kids?  I was never a “kid” kinda woman.  I was still on the fence about kids even after I hit 30.  Maybe it was because I saw how my mom struggled and thought it wasn’t worth it.  Maybe it was because I heard  were so many horror stories of being a teen mom I was turned off.  Or was I just scared.  Would I be a good mom?  Would I be able to provide for them.  Fast forward ten years, I don’t know what my life would be like without my girls.  I’m so excited that I can include my baby dolls in what I’m passionate about.  I’m also grateful that brands like Suakoko Betty and Creative Soul Photography  help me capture beautiful moments with my girls.

Happy Hair: Books & Activities for Little Brown Girls

When I was a little girl, my mom had to search far and wide to find a brown doll that resembled me.  I was almost over Barbies when they finally had came out with the brown Peaches n’ Cream doll.  Remember her?  I’m so excited for Peyton and Harper to have brown dolls and characters in books that look like them.  First thing Peyton says when she sees books or dolls she says “She has a puff like mine” or “Her hair is curly like mine”.  It warms my heart.  I’m happy to introduce you to Happy Hair “I Love Being Me” products.  happy hair 1 Continue Reading
