Under the Kitchen Sink Organization {Video}

I’m back with my second #OrganizedonFleek challenge!  Last week I tackled my pantry HERE and this week I’m taking you under my sink.  I’ve found that organizing and decluttering work best when you break them down into small tasks.  Under my kitchen sink was a hot mess filled with cleaners that I never use or even empty bottles.  Watch the video below to see how I got it together and learn how you can participate in the Organized on Fleek Challenge to win a gift card to one of our favorite stores.

Breaking Out of A Funk

I hope you all had a great Dr. Martin Luther King weekend.  I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys much since the New Year.  I planned on hitting the ground running for 2018 but that didn’t happen.  I don’t know what happened but I’ve been in a deep funk since Christmas.  I haven’t been wanting to get dressed or leave the house.  I did go to the gym only because I felt it was acceptable to look like I just rolled out of the bed.  I’ve managed to look presentable about 3 times since Christmas.  I haven’t taken pictures of me or the girls since before Christmas.  This was a feeling that I wasn’t used to.  I’m usually always ON.  I’m thinking that I was just burned out. This phase has encouraged me to change some of my plans for 2018.

Easy Way to Make Healthy Smoothies

This post is sponsored by NutriBullet.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you’re anything like me, you planned to hit the ground running to step up your health and fitness game for the New Year. I’ve been doing my best to continue to eat right.   My goal is to incorporate more healthy and nutritious meals for me and my family. The easiest and best way to get nutrients that our bodies need is in a smoothie. My family loves them. But beware; an innocent smoothie can be packed with calories. Now that I have the new NutriBullet Balance, I know exactly what I’m putting in my smoothies. Making the perfect healthy smoothie just got easier thanks to NutriBullet Balance nutrient extractor.

Natural Hair Pillowcases

I’m so excited to share this product that will help all my naturalista minis and mommies.  To this day I still get emails asking how to grow out bald spots on babies and toddlers. Bald spots are usually due to babies rubbing out their hair because they spend a lot of time on their back.  Just like us women, the texture of our hair against cotton is not a good mix.  It can cause bald spots and breakage.  A friend told me before I had Peyton that I needed to make sure she kept silk or satin behind her head.  Where do I find that?  I stole a few of Mister’s silk pocket squares and used that for Peyton when she was a baby.  It wasn’t cute but it helped.  When I had Harper, our friends from MM Blankies sent us one of their fabulous satin blankets that she could lay on and be wrapped in.  I’m happy to share with you MM Blankies newest genius product, designer satin pillowcases.   Continue Reading
