New Baby Alert: Minbie Bottle

 Hey Cuties,

There is a new baby on board and I have baby fever. Let's be clear my baby girl is three and I am done making babies. My niece had a baby which makes me a Great Aunt but I'm too fly for all of that. I'm affectionately known as Auntie Amazing. haha I'm totally soaking up all the fun things that comes with a new baby. Minus all the sleepless nights, delirium and showering every couple of days.

Curl Centric Curly Kids Coloring Book Review & Interview

Where are my coloring Cuties?

This one is for you and or the little Cutie in your life. Ever since I was a little girl I loved to color. When my girl was old enough to scribble I was buying her coloring books. Out of all the coloring books we have Doc McStuffins is the only one that has images of little girls that look like her. Nori likes a variety of characters and I'm okay with that. However I want her to see images of people that look like her and have hair textures like hers. Beauty is shown in a very narrow scope and that simply isn't good enough for me.  When I find images of brown boys and girls I support them.

Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo

Hey Cuties!

My sister and I embarked on our first sister’s trip to the ATL to attend the Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo. The weather was perfect, the hotel location was perfect, the food was amazing and we got in a lot of things in our five day stay. So much so I have to break it up into an ATL blog series.
