IT TWANKLES AND GLISTENS!!
When I graduated college many, moons ago (don’t ask how many moons ok!) As a gift my mom gave me a ” You’re a grown woman self care kit/Lesson”. She has always been on our heads (my sisters and I) about taking care of our skin. To the point that she will comment things like “I hope you have on sunscreen!” on a fire selfie posted to Facebook. Think I’m kidding? Exhibit A:
Throughout my life I have been told that I am and like things that are considered “Extra”…OK… I used to think of it as a bad thing until I understood that having or being “extra” is just adding a little sauce to the ordinary in your life, which is what I really enjoy doing. Continue reading

Today I got paid…And then even though I wanted to buy some Nike Uptempos I paid bills instead. This is also a rent check .So let’s just say I’m going to have to get creative in the kitchen and in life to keep this party going. However that doesn’t mean I can move and shake in life even when things get tight. Part of keeping your eyes on the prize is having a positive mindset and attitude.
