Second Car Search: Mazda CX-5 Great for a Small Family

Disclosure: In partnership with Drive Shop Atlanta, I received a car to review for a week. All opinions contained below are my own and 100% honest. For years, my family has lived with one car.

Kid Style: Stay Cool for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is regarded as the “official” start of summer, and lots of families take advantage of the occasion with cookouts or trips to the beach or pool. Our Memorial Day celebration is a bit different: Every year (except last year, because toddler), we spend the whole weekend celebrating Atlanta’s Caribbean Carnival. There are parades,… Continue reading Kid Style: Stay Cool for Memorial Day

Outfits: Leave Nothing But Footprints (+ Giveaway)

Lately, life hasn’t given me many reasons to feel like dressing up. Of course, once upon a time (not that long ago, really), I didn’t need a reason to get dressed.

I’m also getting a real kick out of styling all her little… Continue reading Kid Style: DIY Slashed Leggings + Lauryn Hill

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… Continue reading Kid Style: FroBabies & Timbs

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… Continue reading Awaken the Force with DIY Star Wars Cosplay + New DVD
