    Why I Decided To Get Hair Extensions Postpartum After Baby Number 6

    In early January, I decided to take the plunge and get hair extensions and I absolutely LOVE them. You’re probably wondering why I would do something like this so here it goes… For the past ten years, I’ve been pregnant or postpartum and my hair has seen better days. Every single time I have a baby, my hair goes through a major shedding stage to where I’m left with legit large bald spots and regrowth that looks like someone got a pair of scissors and gave me Barbie bangs.  NOTHING HAS HELPED MY REGROWTH to where I’ve been able to get long hair again. No amount of vitamins, supplements, hair…

    My “Healthy Gatorade”

I do suggest…

The last major federal law that regulates the beauty industry was passed in 1938 by President Rosevelt. The same beauty industry has grown to $511 billion dollars! That’s a very large market with many ingredients that have not even been tested for human safety. With the lack of regulation,…

    How I Made Meal Prepping Non-Negotiable

    Meal prepping. Some people love it and some people hate it. I used to not want anything to do with it. As a mom of six, I’ve found that this is a non negotiable for us. When I don’t do it, even the littlest amount, it makes life crazier. One thing God has taught me in life is to never say never and really take time to find practices that will make my life flow easier. Work smarter and not harder, does that sound familiar?  I was at a point, not to long ago, where I really struggled to do all the things, especially when it comes eating healthy and…
