When I first found out I was pregnant with my son, I was excited, just like every new mom. Unfortunately, when reality set in that I was becoming a mom, I realized that I was lost when it came to necessities. Thankfully, the staff at Babies "R" Us was there to assist me with my registry; and through that registry, I was able to come up with the perfect baby shower gift for all of my friends.

Plan with me: the Create 365 Happy Planner review

Happy Planner

The Create 365 Happy Planner was created by me & my BIG ideas (MAMBI) a few years ago, and combines planning with the need to scrapbook. The idea- dreamt up by a mother/daughter team- has has exploded and there is no question why. Coming in three sizes: classic, mini, and big, the planner is perfect for the diy-ers, bloggers, moms who want to have it all together, and the type A personalities out there. 

I am so inlove with the idea of the Happy Planner that I currently have three: two classics and one mini.

DIY: How to make up your hair with simple things found in your kitchen

diy, haircare, organic

Hi all, today I have Aubrey from www.girlswithnaturalhair.com, and she has something very cool to tell you about! Take it away, Aubrey!


Taking care of your hair is always a challenge. It’s this time when you’re entertaining the idea of going to a salon and have the stylist do all the job. And it’s also the time when you think you have no other choice but to purchase hair products. The thing is, there are a lot of ways that you can do in order to achieve the quality of hair that you are aiming for. And you don’t need expensive products for that. Just the things that are readily available in your home already serve as perfect hairstyle paraphernalia. Even your kitchen tools can make a huge difference.

Parenting & ADHD: Dealing with judgement


Are you a good parent? How do you know?

I have always thought that I was a good parent. I always put my child first, no matter what. My focus is generally on him, whenever he is home from school. Of course, there is always house work that needs done, a shower that needs to be taken, or a shift that needs to be picked up at work, but I try to keep my attention on my son. 

The other day, a person close to me called my parenting methods into question. Earlier in the day, I had already gotten a call from my son's school because he nonchalantly said "I want to stab myself with a knife." You should have seen my face when his teacher told me, but truthfully I wasn't surprised. You see, my son watches a lot of YouTube. As much as my husband and I try to monitor what he is watching, there is always a video that gets in there that is not parent approved. And the video that sparked the "outburst"? A prank video. And yes, I watched it with him. But why if I watched the video with him, would he say "I want to stab myself with a knife"? It's simple: because he didn't know what that phrase meant.

Walgreens Beauty Haul

#hask, #haskgoesgreek, HASK beauty, Wet n Wild

I love beauty products; the only thing that I love more is cheap beauty products. While I was at Walgreens about a week ago, I decided to grab some new beauty products. I currently have a thing for buying cruelty free products for one reason... no animal testing. I chose two brands to buy from: HASK and Wet n Wild; and spoiler alert, not only did I fall in love with the price, but the products as well!

10 favorite FREE Spring fonts

free fonts, blogger fonts, graphic design fonts

To be honest, I have a thing for fonts. It may well just be a budding obsession, but I can tell you that I have TONS! I really love to mix and match the fonts in Photoshop, especially when I am ready for a blog makeover. And the nice thing is that there is a TON of fonts out there on the interwebs. I can tell you from experience that it's really easy to find fonts and fall in love with them, but sometimes it can be hard to find FREE fonts that you will love.

Letter from the Editor | March

#monthlygoals, blogging goals

Well, it's March. No surprise there. But to be honest, is any one else also trying to figure out where the heck February went? Or how we are already in the third month of 2017? I know it's cliche but it seriously feels like we were just posting pics on Insta of toasts and champagne celebrating New Year's, and now today is the first day of Lent. What the heck?

Sure, since it's March, it means that Spring is right around the corner (hopefully...), and then onto the warmer days, bonfires, beaches, and flip flop weather of Summer; so it's not all bad, right? I mean, this month I am looking forward to a lot of things... like my much anticipated tax return, Lil Man's Spring Break, a full time job (hopefully), a lot of cleaning, and so much more. 


Blog wise, March is going to be a very exciting month!
