I love Nia Long!
She is 43, #brandmom, mother of 2, sexy, sweet smile and just seems like the perfect sistagirl.
This #BrandMom is still in the season of #gratitude especially for the little things which cost little to nothing. As you get older – life is about simplicity – the quiet moments and finding the perfect snack, which won’t add any additional love to your handles. I am ecstatic about my recent discoveries and wanted to share. ☺
My skin has changed since I turned 40, however, 46, has been rough and I mean that. This season the skin has been dry; I’ve tried the uber luxury brands to the no-frills brands, however, I am thankful for saving my skin from being similar to a reptile with an old-fashioned scrub shared on my radio show from @MarshaMakeovers. A listener sent a question into the chat room about dry skin and all I could do was say AMEN.
Never Forget to Celebrate the Little Things: Happy Thanksgiving!
I am so thankful for the little things and will celebrate this Thanksgiving with simplicity and NO DRAMA!
Thanksgiving is only one day, so why stress? You can order Chinese Food and still celebrate family. Right? Continue reading
Ever since I had accepted the job as a mom, I realized that being prepared before the celebratory events was a stress reliever. I have created a system based on my own “last minute” frustrations that help me stay prepared before the holidays, birthdays, spring breaks and etc.
We already know that Christmas is on Dec. 25th, Thanksgiving is in November, Spring Break is in March, school starts in September or August for some and we know the dates of our children’s birthday. Preparing for these festivities before they get near, help us as Busy Moms stay sane and sound avoiding the shopping rush, sale anxiety and last minute pickings. Continue reading
Do you have an accountability partner? You know a buddy or a coach that will cheer you on and keep you motivated to reach your goal?
This past weekend I attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within, 4-day conference in New Jersey. The experience forced me to tap into self and put my fears on blast holding me back. Yes, it was that deep. The sessions were typically 8-12 hours a day and the first day was the firewalk. NOTE: You can experience severe burns.
Inspiration is needed to nurture and feed the soul. As a woman, inspiration, is as vital as the heart/blood pumping life into the body. There are times when you feel alone as you plot, negotiate, pitch, nurture and love. Being discouraged is part of the path however you are not alone. #BlackGirlsRock! Black Girls Rock is must-see TV on BET. You will not only get fed spiritually, musically, emotionally and sisterly you will (also) feel jazzed to get out of your way. Yes! Move out of your way and live your authentic passion to reach your ultimate goals. I loved when honoree Mara Brock-Akil (creator of The Game, Being Mary Jane, Girlfriends) said, “Black women/girls are worth rooting for however you must start cheering for self first.”
Are you the best cheerleader for #BrandSelf?
Somewhere along the way, we got a memo saying that we had to be fabulous–all the time. How is this possible? How many of us are pretending to be a superwoman when we are a super wreck? It’s time to re-invent.
Re-invention is the process of being honest about what’s compromising your spirit and preventing you from being the best (job, business, marriage, family and friends). The goal of re-invention is to become your true, authentic self–so you can live your purpose and make the necessary changes to W-I-N. Continue reading
