Expanding to photography

I’ve been becoming more fascinated with photography, the different cameras, lenses, and the story behind photos. My dad always had this Nikon D80 camera and I’ve been studying and learning how to use it and learning about the different lenses for it also. I bought a 18-55mm lens which is good for portraits. I’m going…

A Day at a Street Fair

This past Sunday there was the annual street fair that happens every Fall in my town. It was a warm and sunny day, perfect weather for it, I took my daughter and we spent a few hours there and had met up with my friend and her family. We watched the kids run from bouncy…

Why Fall is the best season

From the hot 87 degree days, warm breezes and the sun setting at 9pm, summer brings out the happiness and excitement in people. From June to August it’s two months of vacations, parties and beautiful sunny days. Once Fall rolls around, some people become disheartened because it means we’re getting closer to the colder months,…

Fall Favorites

Now that the weather is changing from Summer to fall, what I use on my hair and skin changes. I use a variety of products as it gets colder because my skin has different needs from summer to fall. So I’m going to share my current hair and skin favorites. Being that I have naturally…

Friday at Tanger

Today was a beautiful sunny warm day and I took Aviana to Tanger Outlets in Deer Park. Depending on where you live in Long Island you either go to this location or the one out in Riverhead. It’s a 35 minute drive to Tanger without traffic, and I’ve actually never been to this one I…

Life with my little love bug

My Avi baby is 8 months old now and I can’t believe it. It feels like yesterday that I gave birth to her and laid my eyes on her for the first time. She has so much energy and always happy, it’s amazing watching her move around, learn to do new things and her interact…

Finding purpose in your 20s

Who else is 23,24,25 years old still trying to figure out their purpose in life? Or undecided on the career path to go down? It seems like in today’s day and age being 20 something and traveling, going to college and just living it how you want to is normal and accepted. Remember as kids…

When you come to Long Island, you have to eat at these places

When you think about New York people always think of NYC right off the bat, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Central Park, and of course restaurants. But New York is more than just Manhattan, there’s more to explore (and eat) and Long Island has so many restaurants and food spots that are sometimes overlooked because…

The Best Ice Cream

Living on Long Island there’s many places to get ice cream, Carvels, Ralph’s, Cold Stone, Rita’s and many others . When I saw that SpoonsLI would be opening last month in July I knew I had to go once it opened. I’d always see cool ice cream shops on Instagram that have exotic flavors, edible…

My go to summer curly hair styles

I’m sure every curly girl out there knows when it’s summer time and the weather is beautiful that you keep your hair up in a cute style. Leaving my hair out when it’s hot is sometimes a swing and miss with me because I want my hair to blow in the wind and not worry…

Black & Breastfeeding

Being that Black Breastfeeding Week is coming up I wanted to make a post about black women and breastfeeding. I can say that out of the mom's I know 2 of them breastfeed. Compared to other races, breastfeeding in the black community is lower. I'm sure other moms out there who breastfeed know the struggle…
