How to Make Fun DIY Christmas Ornaments

Hey Cuties, We are four days away from Christmas; have you found your cheer? Have you finished shopping? Have you hung your stockings? Have you not bothered to pull out any decorations and just plan to lie around in your pajamas? No judgement, I believe in spending the holidays the way you want. I also realize that the holiday time can be a very sad and stressful time of the year. If you are missing a special someone I send you my love. If this is your first Christmas without said love one, I send you my love and I suggest doing something that honors them or something the both of you loved to do. 

Did you know National Ugly Sweater Day was a thing? #NationalUglySweaterDay

Hey Cuties, Friday was a big day for me and I was looking forward to it. I was on Good Morning Washington, News Ch. 8 & ABC 7 for National Ugly Sweater Day. My recent blog post on the DIY Ugly Sweaters for LittleCuteLips and I were right on time.  National Ugly Sweater Day is the third Friday of December, this year that was Friday, December 16th, so happy belated #NationalUglySweaterDay

Get the kids in on the Ugly Christmas Sweater Trend

Hey Cuties, We are sixteen days out from Christmas and the holiday preparations are still underway. Did you know that it was an official Ugly Christmas Sweater Day? Me either. It takes place on the third Friday of December. This year it is Friday, December 16th a week from today. In honor of such a day, I will be on Good Morning Washington on ABC7 - News Channel 8 giving tips on how to make your own DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater. I showed you an adult DIY, now I have a kid DIY for you.

Stepping out of my comfort zone in the name of Girl Scouts

Hey Cuties, At the end of October, I was telling my girlfriend the rest of my year was dry.  I wanted it to go out with a bang but my calendar was bare. Ever since I uttered those words I've had blessings upon blessings bestowed upon me. I am proud to say I was ready for each one of them. I didn't know what was coming but if you stay ready you don't have to get ready. On Saturday I was invited to speak for the very first time. #BucketList I was honored to speak at the Keys to Leadership: Girl Scout Conference on Leadership & Inclusion at American University.

The truth about Black Girl Magic, Mom Melanin, Sequin, and Make-Up

Hey Cuties, Last week I got all fancy and hit the town with a bunch of moms. We put on our festive party clothes, left the kids at home with someone responsible and had a girl's night. A girl's night on a Thursday evening.  The invite said A Holiday Beauty Fete; get fancy, come to Bloomingdale's, Lancôme will be there and District MotherHued had planned an evening of fun.  The #DMVMomTribe showed up and showed out and fun was had.
