Kindergarten Prep – Dental Visit

As we begin the early stages of getting ready for kindergarten I was on a mission to find the perfect dentist for my son. An affordable Cosmetic Dentist in Box Hill was just one option I cam across when I was on my search for the perfect dentist. As I know how important oral hygiene is for both myself and my kids, setting a good example is what I want to do. If you get your kids in this routine early on, it will stick with them as they grow. The other dentist was the only one in his practice and not available to my liking. My co-worker told me about her daughter's dentist. Neibauer Dental, I go online and I'm impressed right away. I see two Black doctors, two Asian doctors, a Middle Eastern doctor and few white doctors. My first thought it YES DIVERSITY!!! Then I see they are open seven days a week. WHO DOES THAT?!? I call the location of my choosing and the person on the other end was really friendly and had an available appointment within two days. SWEET!

My New Favorite Thing – Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding

I went to Target this weekend (no surprise there) and I was all excited to see Miss Jessie's products are finally in stores.  My natural journey began in July 2005 and I started using Miss Jessie's curly pudding soon thereafter.  They have a few types of curly puddings but this one is my favorite. It smells yummy and help defines your natural curl pattern. Problem is the price (this jar is $38.00) but it does last a long time. I only apply this to my short natural hair when wet.

Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycle season is upon us please be mindful of the bikers on the roads. When you hear them stay where you are and they will move around you. Every year many bikers are killed some as a result of their own error, some accidental, but many because drivers fail to see them. Unfortunately, accidents like these happen too frequently. When an accident is not your fault, there isn't much you can do. But there are simple ways where you can lessen the chance of any incident and help keep you safe on the roads, even if it includes looking into the 7 Best Motorcycle Helmets around right now. The helmet is an essential item for any biker, so this should be the first item you consider purchasing, maybe even before you've got your bike. This way, you're ensuring your safety even before you're on the road. My sweetie is a rider and last year he attended quite a few memorial rides for a fellow motorcyclist who went down and well... never came home. I must keep my biker safe, this one is ALL ME!

What will you leave behind?

Today I attended the memorial service for Mr. Paul S. Devrouax Jr. he was a principal in Devrouax & Purnell, one of Washington's largest black-owned architecture firms. He and his partner, Marshall Purnell, designed the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center, the first major building to rise on U Street in decades. It was at the vanguard of an entire neighborhood's revival... For more than 30 years, Paul S. Devrouax Jr. helped weave the urban fabric of Washington. He and his firm worked on some of the region's largest and most significant buildings, including the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the Pepco building, what is now Verizon Center and the Freddie Mac headquarters in McLean. Along with HOK Sport of Kansas City, Devrouax & Purnell designed Washington's Nationals Park, which opened in 2008.
