How To Make Milksicles

Teething is a normal part of a baby’s development when their baby teeth are in the process of erupting. It typically occurs from 6-24 months of age and trust me you will know.

During this time your child will most likely experience discomfort due to tender and swollen gums, become irritable, go through tons of bibs from drooling, and try to bite on any and everything to relieve the pain. Oh and lots of crying.

Teething is a stressful time for you and your baby as you struggle to find ways to relieve their pain but thanks to one mom named Tasia Blackwell (same name gang 💁🏾‍♀️ so I like her already) who invented Milksicles there’s a solution to this challenge.

Shit just got real! I said Yaassss

It’s been one week since I got engaged and it feels exactly how I thought it would feel-simply amazing. I’ve been smiling from ear to ear this whole week. Just happy, gloating and drunk in love.

I’ve literally been playing Beyoncé’s “Love On Top” in my head on repeat. Hitting the high notes and everything. LOL. I’m making sure it gets played at my wedding (it’s never to soon to start planning) because I’m obsessed with it right now.

The lyrics hit different when you know exactly what Beyoncé means when she says finally you put my love on top. Man oh man, like this post if you understand.

This love shit is work. It’s easy to be single and selfish. To be in a relationship is hard work but to be able to depend on someone is the best feeling in the world. A lot of times you are all you got so to find someone you can be unapologetically you with to go through life with is a game changer.

Hussle With Purpose

Right now the west coast is in a serious state of mourning. On March, 31, 2019 the west coast lost Grammy nominated Nipsey Hussle to senseless gun violence. If you ask many of my peers they’d say our generation lost our present day Tupac.

The same way Tupac’s death affected not only the the rap culture but the world back in 1996, in loosing Nipsey Hussle (another young legend) we all felt that pain again. Even if you didn’t know him you at least had empathy about his untimely passing because he was legit a good dude who touched so many lives.

R.I.P Nayborhood Nip 🏁💙🏁

Nipsey’s celebration of life ceremony and 25 mile funeral procession was a testament of how much of a cultural influence he had.

Nipsey was a not just a young Black successful rapper but a leader, activist, family man, mentor, friend, father and entrepreneur who never forgot where he came from and always gave back. The fact that he came from nothing-it’s inspiring and let’s me know that you can have anything you want if you hustle and go get it.

Sometimes we share all the good and happy news but don’t like to talk about the ugly side of motherhood. The side that causes your hormones to rage in ways you never knew.
