About 5 years ago me and my daughter were going through SOHO having a mommy and me day and we came across a store that I always tried to avoid because of the many smells it had going on which gave me a headache. Now fast forward and there is not a mommy & me day that doesn’t go by with us picking something up. I am a fan favorite of the fresh face mask be careful where you go, these bad boys are hot sellers many times in Roosevelt Field Mall’s Lush there is a waiting list just to buy them (I don’t run into this problem in the city often) I myself use Cupcake a cocoa & spearmint blend that leaves my skin so radiant and soft . What I love about lush is they an organic handmade products made by their team. Don’t believe me? Look on your products once you buy them not only that go online and see actual associates making products. My daughter loves FUN it’s clay, soap a bubble bar and coloring fun my daughter loves it and actually loves baths more because of it! Stop in your local Lush and become a Lushhead! I myself can’t wit to try the henna hair dye (which they will do in store for you for free if you buy the bar there an appointment is needed at most shops) a blog is sure to come following that!

This year God did show up and how himself mighty and I can truly and really say I learned the true meaning of Christmas at 24 years old. For starters as I my mind wandered from last Christmas until now Is a gift in it’ own! Around this time lat year I was jobless, homeless slightly depressed and dealing with a fool I had no business crossing the more than church mates line. Continue reading
So I’m brushing out my hair and my 7-year-old is brushing her teeth it is officially 5 days after the election. Barack Obama has been declared the president for another 4 years. Whoo Hoo! The hood girl in me wanted to running around bumping my President is black all the while the professional mother career woman and just grown-up in me was just excited anyone but Romney was in office not because of race but because I truly don’t believe he was the correct presidential candidate for me. Ok back to my story so we are getting ourselves together and some how our conversation got on the President. Up until this very moment I just believed my child A like Barack Obama because he was a black man but also because she was a little upset about the whole Mitt Romney firing Big Bird Joke.( lol) Yet when the subject came up this particular Sunday morning my daughter blurts out “Yeah mommy we voted for Barack Obama because he is black right?” Continue reading
