DIY Gymnastics Medal Display

When my husband and I bought our daughter a Groupon deal to try out a few gymnastics classes a few years ago, we had no idea that it would become her passion. We were honestly just trying to help her find an activity that would burn off extra energy. At the time, she was still being treated for leukemia, so [...]

Kid Style: The Wonder of Nature with Tor Organics

My family has lived in Georgia for a total of more than a decade, but I admit, we haven't seen as much of it as we'd like. We're creatures of habit, and we tend to frequent the same places we've always gone. That's mostly my doing, I'm sure. I tend to prefer the familiar. But since Juliza and I started [...]

Kid Style: DIY Slashed Leggings + Lauryn Hill

OK. I admit I'm having a whole lot of fun with Juliza's newfound fashionista persona. Since she is really shy around other people (read: She doesn't like very many people at all), I love seeing her light up in front of the camera. I'm also getting a real kick out of styling all her little outfits. Case in point: I've [...]

What’s in My Baby Bag, Toddler Edition

Breastfeeding is magical. OK. Maybe not magical. But there are quite a few perks, one of which is not having to make bottles of formula, and another of which is never having to take said bottles of formula with me when leaving the house. As a result, baby Juliza's baby bag has always been free most feeding supplies. Of course, [...]

Kid Style: FroBabies & Timbs

One of the things I've made it a point to do is make my girls feel empowered about their hair. In a world where naturally curly hair among Black women and girls is only just approaching the realm of mainstream, it is important to me that they know they are beautiful just the way they are. So when I discover [...]

Awaken the Force with DIY Star Wars Cosplay + New DVD

I'm going to admit something. I've never really seen most of the Star Wars movies. By that, I mean that while I remember iconic scenes from most of the films from watching them in passing, I never actually sat and watched any of them in their entirety, on purpose. So when Walmart offered me a chance to have a viewing [...]

Kid Style: Black, White and Tutu

Baby Juliza loves to play dress up. She asks to put on shoes pretty much the moment she wakes up in the morning, and she'll only take them off to nurse or get up on the sofa or bed. When she wants to wear a tutu, she asks to put on her "princess." I would say I don't know where [...]

Get Your Batman v. Superman Fix at Walmart

I've never been much of a comic fan, but like most other people, I get into the stories when they're brought to the big screen (or the small screen via TV shows). My husband is the same way, and his latest interest is the new Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He is almost annoyingly excited about it and tells [...]

Review: Carol’s Daughter Now Available at Walmart

When I first went natural back in 2009, I was a product junkie. I would buy and try a new product — sometimes several new products — just about every week. After years of managing relaxed hair, it took a while before I figured out what worked for my hair. There was also the fact that products specifically designed for naturally curly [...]

Child of Mine Will Get Kids Ready to Swim

Last year was interesting. When my family and I lived in an apartment complex with a pool, we spent a lot of time in the water during the late spring and summer. All of us love to swim, and even infant Juliza loved bouncing and kicking as she floated. But when we moved into our current home in a community [...]
