• 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

      According to every “How To Blog” blog post, the about me page is crucial. It’s like a squid game, but for bloggers. Those who have a good about me page survive, and those who don’t die. ¬†It’s like the absence of an about me page will trigger a catastrophic algorithm that causes your blog to implode. Not only do you need to have one, but it must follow the about me, but not really about me template. Since I don’t have one, I thought I better get on it before I meet my untimely demise. So, I sat down to write…

  • How To Cultivate Poise

    I’ve been obsessed with the idea of poise and class since childhood. I vividly remember being so excited at the opportunity to attend an etiquette class when I was a child. You see, when I was in 2rd grade, my school announced that they were selecting 30 girls to participate in an etiquette class at school. Since they never told us the criteria they were using to make their selection, every night I blindly prayed that I would get picked. Unfortunately, I was not chosen. My sister was. To say that I was disappointed would be an understatement. My sister had no…

  • Haters Gonna Hate

    There are two types of people in this world, those that hate and those that focus on self improvement.¬†Haters will always spew their hate, and it has nothing to do with what they “hate”. Seriously, next time you find yourself hating something, maybe you should take a step back and ask yourself why you hate it so much. Do you really hate what you say you hate? Or, are just feeling insecure about yourself and using hate as a distractor? I’ve got $100 bill that says you’re trying to distract both yourself and others from your own perceived flaws. Go ahead, try…

  • How To Boost Serotonin Naturally

    Does your mood shift after the holidays? Mine does…every year! It never fails. This year my mood took a nose dive before Christmas, and has yet to bounce back. In fact, each day it seems to get a little bit worse. Everyone’s talking about Covid boosters, yet I’m over here wondering where to get a serotonin booster. Serotonin is usually the neurotransmitter that comes to mind when people talk about depression. Serotonin is a mood stabilizing hormone that also helps with sleep and digestion. If your levels drop too low, it can leave you feeling depressed, anxious, exhausted, and even cause some…

  • Graze Vs. Meal: Which Is Better?

    Are you a meal person or a grazer? I never really gave it much thought until someone mentioned that they cook three meals everyday. I’m the opposite! I cook one, occasionally two meals a day. The rest of the day we either eat left overs, snacks, or things that the kids and I can make quickly.  I usually cook meals that will have left overs that way I can skip cooking the next day. Cooking isn’t my favorite thing to do. Plus, when I cook more I feel compelled to eat more and usually end up over-eating. I really want to teach…

  • ‘Twas The Night Before Grinchmas

    ‘Twas the night before Grinchmas…wait, wait, wait! Grinchmas? Yes, you heard that right we celebrate Grinchmas. I know that there are many Christians and Muslims  who are offended by the way my family has chosen to celebrate this lovely yearly tradition. But, before you throw shade, let me explain how this all came about. You see, my husband’s family is Muslim and I am from non-practicing Catholic family. Growing up we always celebrated Christmas, however, it was never in a religious way. Even though my husband grew up in Canada his family never celebrated Christmas because well they’re Muslim and it’s not…

  • 10 Reasons A Niche Is Too Inhibiting

    Do you have a niche? Not really. I do gravitate toward personal development. However, I personally don’t feel like niches are all they’re cracked up to be. Like many labels in life, I find them restricting. Sure, if you’re a surgeon operating on people then maybe a niche is a good thing. I mean who wants a plastic surgeon who does boob jobs most of the time doing their rhinoplasty. Not me! So, yes niches can be important. But, does that mean everyone needs to have a niche? I don’t think so. So, here are 10 reasons why I feel niches are…

  • The Law Of Attraction

    My First Introduction To The Law Of Attraction My first introduction to the law of attraction was when I was in college. I was working full time for the federal government and part time at a local piano bar to help make ends meet. Financially, I was struggling. I took out student loans, but that didn’t even cover all of my tuition let alone books. There was literally nothing left over at the end of each month. Actually, it was worse than that because I was racking up credit card debt along the way. Life was stressful to say the least. At…

  • Halloween Weight Loss Challenge

         Who wants to join a Halloween weight loss challenge? When you’re a mom, Halloween can be a daunting time of year especially if you’re trying to loss weight. Between all of the parties, trick or treating, and Halloween themed gingerbread houses you can easily pack on a couple of pounds without even realizing. Since I’m still a couple of pounds away from my goal weight, I decided to challenge myself. This Halloween my goal is to not collect the “Mom tax”. For those of you who unfamiliar the mom tax is, it is when Mom takes several pieces of candy…
