MY FALL HOME TOUR + DECOR TIPS

MY FAVORITE KINDLE FIRE APPS FOR PRE-SCHOOLERS

We've been having such a good time with Chase and Conner, watching them grow and seeing their little personalities blossom. I have to admit, this is my favorite time with them! You see, they were born prematurely at thirty two weeks. Thankfully, they didn't have any...

FALL DECOR SHOPPING AT HOMEGOODS

Fall's just around the corner and I'm already thinking about transitioning the decor around our home to welcome the new season. One of my favorite things about living in the Northeast is experiencing the four seasons, and bringing the best elements of each season into...

FROM THE BOSSMOM PLAYBOOK – HOW I BALANCE IT ALL

It goes without saying that my plate’s full, pretty much all of the time! Balancing my most important job (raising my two beautiful boys), while having a full-time job AND building two brands is exhausting. I try not to complain too much about how tired I am because I...

MY TIPS FOR A LIT SUMMER STAY-CATION

It's been less than a week since I got back from the mini vacation I took with my guys. We took a few days off and drove down to Virginia Beach for some "R and R", and a much needed change of scenery! As we drove back, it dawned on me what a privilege it is to have...

OUR HOMESTYLE SUNDAY BRUNCH

Eating "fancy" on a Sunday morning has been a tradition in my family since I was a child. Growing up in Jamaica, it meant that delicacies such as ackee and saltfish (our National dish), breadfruit, and Johnny cakes were reserved for this special meal. After helping my...

FESTIVE SWEATERS

'Tis the season for festive sweaters! I love seeing rich, bold colors stand out against the drab, and sometimes snowy, landscape characteristic of the Winter months. There's something so unexpected about that bright pop of color that livens me up, and gets me even...

LIVING MY FITTEST LIFE NOW

I'm entering my 40th year in 2019. Since I became an adult (legally of course, maturity had nothing to do with it), this milestone age would be when I would've achieved all of my life goals. Thank God I've grown up since then, but turning the big 4-0 is still a pretty...

A ROYAL WEDDING!

We are ROYALS! We already knew this, but the historically charged Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made it plain for everyone to see. The dress was magnificent! Not for its grandeur (the silhouette was quite subdued), but for the strong message it sent...
