• Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

Breastfeeding + Exclusive Pumping Tips {Video}

December 15, 2015

If you follow me on social media, you may have heard me talk about my current breastfeeding experience.  I have an over supply of milk, seen HERE, so I exclusively pump.  I thought I would share my experience and tips if you are a pumping mom.  Check out my video below.  I’m also introducing my new co-host, Harper.


pumping tips

I told you guys I was a cow!  Harper is so funny, she checked out on us.  Like I said in the video, this is a no judgement zone.  You should always do whats best for you and your baby.  I’m not sharing this video to brag about how much milk I have but to try and help others.  Pumping is hard work and I had to learn everything myself along the way.    Below are links to the products that I mentioned in the video.

Did you pump to feed your baby?  Please share your tips or questions below.  I’m thinking about doing a live Periscope (babyshoa) to answer questions if you have any. Let me know if you guys are interested.

    I LOVE that she fell asleep! Too precious! Just shared the tips, which are super helpful for new (and not so new) moms since every nursing experience is so unique.
