The Best For My Kid

Meet Myers, an affectionate mixed Pitbull that stole my heart less than a year ago. When we first met, I thought, this big ol’ dog is about to eat me alive. Thankfully, over time, we were able to establish a bond that is like no other. He meets me at the door whenever I visit, smothers me with wet kisses in the a.m. even though his ulterior motive…

Envy Me Baby!

HP has been around for quite some time. I remember my first laptop (entering into my freshman year of college) was a HP laptop my mom had scrambled cash together to buy me as a graduation gift. The excitement I felt then is the same excitement I feel now being introduced to the new HP Envy x360 laptops that are currently out now. You're probably thinking…

One Word That Boosts My Mood

You're Missing Out on the LG Twin Wash System!

Have you ever tried doing laundry while your To-Do List is the length of the US Constitution, only to realize not everything fits and you're on a strict timeline? Or when you need fresh/clean clothes because in less than 5 hours you need to be at a networking event, but don't want to do a huge load? I know! Me too! I don't know why but I always end up in a dilemma of having too little or too much laundry.

Watcha Matcha!

After struggling the first 14 days, I've finally created and maintained a routine that stuck. Every morning, I'd say my affirmations, hop in the shower, and immediately sit on my mat with my journal, Love Louder by Preston Smile (it's SO GOOD), and a glass of smoothie or cup of tea. My BFF has been pestering me about this Matcha business, so instead of my routine tea/smoothie, I've replaced it with Organic Matcha DNA
