Put Your Child in the Story {Personalized Story Books}

This review has been compensated by Put Me in the Story. Honestly, I am loving this new trend of getting personalized story books. I was able to personalize a lot of things as a child because April is so common and, well, it’s on the calendar. However, my siblings aren’t so “lucky”. They have beautiful names, but...

Be Stubborn in Your Vision {by Becoming an Uber Driver}

Now that my children go to their independent school, our household budget has changed immensely. Before, my husband’s income was adequate to support our simple household. But now, we need to be able to finance sending three children to non-public education. As early as last year, I’ve started working on my own ventures. So far,...

Keeping in the Sun this Winter with @GlassesUSA

**This conversation is sponsored by GlassesUSA. All opinions are my own.** Summer is over. And in Florida, a real winter is never coming. Since moving here, I have noticed how much I miss seasons. Let’s be real, Southern California doesn’t exactly scream four seasons. Yet, I lived through several cold winters, including one that was...

CompTIA #MakeTechHERStory

On our way up the coast, my husband and I started talking about our career choices. He’s an aerospace engineer. I’m a lawyer. I love a lot of things about the law, but it doesn’t spark my creative side. He asked me why I didn’t choose another career field since I clearly have passions in other...

Hurricane Matthew… Getting Ready for the Big Storm

**This is not a disaster preparedness post. For those coming for that, I have linked guides for actual hurricane preparedness.** If you aren’t on the East Coast, you probably haven’t heard much about Hurricane Matthews bearing down on the eastern seaboard, the largest in a decade. For this area, I believe it’s the largest since Hurricane...

My All Natural Fabric Softener Solution

The essential oil revolution has brought out numerous claims. Some are completely legitimate, some are just sales tools and others are straight out lies. Don’t get me wrong, I have a large variety of essential oils in my stash ready for many types of solutions. One solution that has always struck me as questionable, at...

End Your Kids’ Summer with a Bang at Groupon #Groupon #ad

One thing that gets under my skin is finding an item cheaper after I already paid for it. With Groupon Goods, I’ve never had that problem. I told you a while back about the shopping haul. I still use all of those products and frequently search for more, checking out the app two or three times...

I Found A Neighborhood Hidden Gem: Gaines Park

Summertime is all about how to keep your kids occupied, still keep your sanity and your money. I really wanted my children to take classes, but their ages range from 2 to 12 and I don’t have the time or the energy to run them to different places with possibly conflicting times. We decided that swim lessons...

Pathways to Financial Freedom Series

As a black woman who did all of the things that society told me to do (went to college, law school and had a family), I was wildly unequipped to deal with the financial aspect of becoming an adult. I knew how to balance a checkbook, but learning how or why to develop an adequate...

Best Father’s Day Gifts for Men Who Mean Business 2016

In my house, Father’s Day gifts are the hardest to buy. My husband often just buys whatever he wants whenever he wants it. So, this year, I thought long and hard about things that would prove really useful in his daily life, but may not have known about. If you’ve got a businessman at home,...
