7 College Safety Tips

Saturday, May 20, 2017



Although I’ve personally been out of college for a few years, there are many safety tips that I have when attending either a small campus or a large University. Being far from home, safety is high up on my list of priorities. For girls especially, it may not be the best of conversations but it needs to be talked about.

Cheap and Easy Photo Editing With FotoJet (Review)

Saturday, May 13, 2017

If you love Canva but hate the price FotoJet is what you need. Read my review and give Fotojet a try for free.

The hardest part of blogging for me is the branding. For a long time I did not care about the branding until I got really serious about my blogging (i.e. trying to turn it into an income). Being consistent and creating images for my blog take just as much time and thought as creating writing. So on recommendation I tried Canva (the go to for bloggers) but it comes with a steep price ($109 a year) so when I was contacted to do a review on FotoJet I was over the moon.


How To Prevent Hairloss During Pregnancy?

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Hair loss in women is becoming relatively common with about 30% experiencing at least some degree of thinning in their lifetime.   The psychological effects can be varied, furthermore, when there is a concept that any hair loss in women is socially unacceptable, women are more emotionally affected even when the thinning of their hairs is in early stages. These two perceptions make further complicated, the process of dealing with hair loss in women.

Today You Are 5 (Happy Birthday Noah)

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Dear Noah,

Today You Are 5 (Happy Birthday Noah)
Today you are 5.
Your favorite foods are blackberries, spinach, and Pepsi. You have never had a PB&J sandwich and most days of the week getting you to eat is a struggle. You are the one kid in your class that eats your vegetables and leaves everything else on the plate and it is a wonderful yet hard thing to deal with as your mom. It never feels like you have eaten enough.


Today you are 5.
You are obsessed with Youtube, Darth Vader, trucks, and tornadoes. You want to be a truck driving doctor who does not go to college and chases tornadoes, and I just want you to be happy whatever you do.



Today you are 5.
Your favorite people are auntie Angel and TT, uncle Khalid, and mommy. You think everyone named Ibrahim is your cousin and that visiting auntie is talking over Skype.


Today you are 5.
The world is simple what is right is right, and what is wrong is wrong. Love is love, men can cry, but you cannot wear pink because that is a girl color. It all seems so simple now and I know that will not always be the case. But try and remember love is always the best option.



Today you are 5.
You are no longer the little baby that needs me every minute. You are this independent, free thinking, know it all preschooler, and I am happy and heart broker at how fast time has gone by. You are an introvert like mommy but very much willing to get out of your way to make a friend.


Today you are 5.
You think you want to grow up and be bigger and bigger, but just for me take it slow, and enjoy just being 5 years old.



Love mommy,


4 Things to do After Going to Court

Saturday, April 22, 2017


I have had a court case thrown out twice after 7k, there were many tears and a lot of stress I was pissed off, hurt, and over EVERYONE. This is sometimes the hard truth about going to court sometimes it does not go your way, and it is beyond stressful. Divorce, custody battles, mediation, judges, your cazy a** ex are apart of single motherhood (for a great deal of us), and the last thing you want is for them to dictate your happiness.

If you are a single mother chances are you have spent some time in court. The idea of a courtroom is enough to drive a woman crazy. I have a few things I like to do after going to court just to brush off the stress and anxiety so I do not carry it home.
