Birthday Vacation to Punta Cana

Thursday, October 6, 2016


Hello Brownies,

Guess who's back?????  Me after a couple of months off due to my broken wrist injury (ATV accident in Costa Rica). I'm happy to report that my wrist is completely healed and I promised my sons that I would never ride the ATV's again in my life. For my birthday this year we took a family trip to Dominican Republic. We visited Punta Cana and Santo Domingo over a span of 5 days. This vacation was nothing short of amazing. This was my first time visiting the DR so I was overly excited about laying out on the beach relaxing. The trip started off terrible because our flight was delayed by two hours due to the rainy weather. But once we arrived and got off the plane it wasn't anything else to complain about. I truly enjoyed myself and spending my birthday with my husband and sons was everything. Here are a couple of pics and I forgot that I got my hair braided and I effing love it.
 













Valentine's Day 2016

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Hello Brownies,

It's been awhile since I've last blogged but now I'm back. I wanted to share with you how I spent my Valentine's Day this year because it was so awesome. I was browsing on Instagram two months ago and I saw that Maxwell posted that he was going to be performing along with Nas at The Barclays Center on Valentine's Day. I immediately sent my husband a email informing him that this is a concert that we shouldn't miss. The next morning we purchased our tickets and began planning our travel to New York. Of course, I love coming to NY to shop in Soho and eating soul food at Amy Ruth's so I was very excited. Let's fast forward to the weekend of the concert in looking at the weather report and it's saying that it's going to be the coldest weekend in years. This made me immediately rethink my outfit because I wanted to look extra sexy for my hubby since it was Lovers Day. Let's just say I was layered up and had in flat knee boots. I wasn't playing with the freezing temperatures at all. The concert was every bit of amazing and I'm not just saying that because of my obsession with Nas or my love for Maxwell. It was just the perfect way to spend the evening with someone that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It was my first Tim seeing Nas perform live and I was very impressed. Maxwell never disappoints, you have to be a strong man to take your wife to his concerts. The ladies are screaming nonstop while the men just sit there and look, lol. Here are some of the pics of that night, please enjoy.

New Hair Color

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

I was browsing Instagram last week and saw that Monica had colored her hair this beautiful red color. I immediately decided that I wanted to take the chance and color mine. I arrived for my appointment and my stylist asked what was I getting done to my hair? When I said I wanted to get it cut down and colored she was surprised because she knows how much I love black hair. While here are the results with a before and after pics.

Hat Obsession

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


Last year I started a love affair with hats which is unusual for me. I would only wear hats when I was running out to the store when I was having a bad hair day. That all changed when I went into H&M and started trying on different hats just for the fun of it. Needless to say that I loved the way that looked and went on a hat shopping spree. Now I wear them for fashion instead of covering up m messy hair. Here are some og my favorite hats that I purchased. Do you ladies love hats for a fashion statement or you only wear them to cover up a bad hair day?

Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Review

Tuesday, January 27, 2015


Hello Brownies,

It's been awhile since I posted something, I truly missed you all. Today I wanted to share how Viva Glam Miley Cyrus looks on me. I must admit I thought it was going to be a darker hot pink but it isn't. I used Beet Lipliner by Mac with the lipstick and lipgloss. Take a look and let me know if you like it. Here's some additional info about the lipstick and lipglass in case you didn't know. The color is described as a Hot Pink and the formula is Amplified. The lipglass is described a Hot Pink with Sparkling Pearl.

 Every cent of the selling price of #VIVAGLAM goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
