The Most Delicious Food Subscription Box – Love with Food

Love with Food

I snack. I’m not ashamed of this. I struggle with dropping this postpartum weight, yes, but I will never give up my snacks. It’s just not gonna happen. I got the opportunity to review the Love with Food box subscription box of snacks and I just about fell over. I looooove me a subscription box. And especially one surrounding snacks. I mean, look at this…

6 Mugs, Water Bottles and Tumblers That Will Make You Squeal

Bottles

If you roll up to my crib and ask for something to drink, said beverage will probably be in a mason jar. I have a thing for mason jars. I put everything in ’em (helllooooo fridge oats) and I just love how cute they make everything look. When I’m not entertaining folx and treating myself to green smoothie, tea or ice water, chances are they’ll be housed in a mug, tumbler or water bottle.

And so, this is PERFECT timing for a Shopbop sale. I mean, when isn’t there a good time for a Shopbop sale? Tell me how much you love these…

My Blacklane Experience

Blacklane

Flying. I’m hitting the airport at least a half dozen times each year. It was about double pre-kids and now that I’ve got two babes in tow, it’ll be quite a while before I travel with both. Have you ever seen parents with more than one kid in the airport? Everyone is flustered. I’m not ready for it yet but when the time hits, I will definitely be using Blacklane.

Self Care Matters – Amope Pedi Perfect for the Win!

This post was sponsored by Amopé™ as part of an influencer activation for the #AmopeCrowd and Socialstars™. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions are my own.

 Self-Care Matters

Girl, listen. Can we have a chat? You know, sister to sister? Let me keep it real with you. You don’t mind, do you? It’s a struggle. By “it”, I mean…almost everything. I look at where my life was 5, 6 and 7 years ago and I chuckle at how I used to complain about the little things. I wouldn’t mind some of those stresses now. I’d trade them for my current ones in a heartbeat.

A Love Letter to the Postpartum Hair Loss Beast

Postpartum Hair Loss

Dear Postpartum Hair Loss Beast,

Hey girl hey. So we meet again, huh? You didn’t catch me off guard like you did with my first pregnancy. Nope. This time, I was awaiting your arrival and had my Black Jamaican castor oil and head wrap game on deck. I knew you were coming to take me out. Things are different this time.

I mean, yes. You are still snatching my edges (quite literally) and have me playing a game called How Far Back Can It Go? with my hairline. There’s mostly humor behind all of this. There’s some sadness, too. Yes, I’m a girl who can confidently rock hair down her back and a bald head but losing your hair never feels good. Especially when you know you have no control over it.
