Live Colorfully

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with some heavy stuff this last week.  If case you missed my Instagram post (HERE), my dad passed away.  Even though we just started to build a relationship the last couple of years, it hurts.  In addition to the grieving his passing, I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster.  I’ve also had to deal with difficult “family”.  I decided that I wasn’t going let them take the little time I’ve had with my dad away from me.  I’m going to keep my head up and continue to live colorfully like I’ve always done.

My Tribe

This summer is flying by.  Everything hasn’t gone as planned for summer.  We’ve mainly been on chill mode, just going with the flow.  It’s crazy how much these girls have grown and learned in such a short period of time.  It’s hard to believe that in a few weeks Peyton will be returning to school.  For the little time that’s left, I’ll be enjoying time with my little tribe in tribal prints.

My Baby Feeding Journey + Parent’s Choice Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Mirum. All opinions are my own

If you were like me the moment you found out you’re expecting you went straight to one of those mommy to be websites. You start reading all the tips and then fall into the rabbit hole of baby feeding forums. I fell in the hole and was I like O M G. What if I’ can’t breastfeed, what if it hurts, how am I going to keep it up for 5 years, what if I don’t get any milk at all, am I a bad mother, will my baby be ok if I don’t breastfeed? All those concerns made me question myself as a soon to be mom. Once Peyton was born (now 7 years old) all those insecurities went away and I made decisions on what was best for me, my baby and family. I thought I would share more about my journey and how Parent’s Choice from Walmart played a significant role. Parent’s Choice is also giving away up to $500. Check out this video about other mom’s feeding choices and keep reading for our story.

Our Favorite Hair Gels & Edge Control

We all know that edges ain’t loyal.  I lost all my edges (and more) after I had Harper about a year and a half ago.  You can read about it HERE.  I’m happy to report that my edges have returned *praise break*.  It was a long journey of trying to cover up my bald spots without wearing a wig.  I did try rocking a wig once but I kept moving it around like I was wearing a hat…not a good look when you’re in public.  This year I’m letting it all hang out this summer.  I’ve been weave and braid free for over a month.  I know that doesn’t sound long but with two girls, trying to work out and a busy social calendar, it seems like forever.  Because I’m a lazy naturalista, my go to style is a low or high bun.  I just wash, brush and go.  With that being said, I’ve been going through a lot of gel and edge control.  I thought I would share my favorites.
