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,...

Learning to Save Money with #GrouponCoupons!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine. I am frugal. Really frugal. I can’t imagine paying full price for anything. I search, research, get the best deal possible at every turn. One of my favorite places to shop is Groupon. From the comforts of my bed, I can scroll and search for great items...

Reuse and Conserve for #EarthDay

Over the last month, I have taken full advantage of my new Amazon Prime account (2-day free shipping, amaaazing!) and loving not paying shipping fees. What I’m not loving is the amount of waste (the boxes, oh the boxes) with each of the products if they don’t come packaged together. So, in honor of upcoming Earth...

3 Reasons You Should Consult with a Professional Before Investing

When it comes to investing, the losses caused due to small mistakes are very real. The effects of those losses can have a significant impact on your life and sometimes, it’s difficult to bounce back.

Big News: Introducing Modernish Mommas

Last year, I read a lot of blogs. I saw the gambit from complaining about parenthood to wildly inventive (but time-consuming and extensive) DIY projects. I enjoyed reading them all. What was noticeably absent was the tie between motherhood and work. Up to 19% of mothers are likely to develop postpartum depression and 10% of mothers...
