Marvel Studios BLACK PANTHER Movie

I’m creating my 2018 movie watch list and Marvel Studios Black Panther is at the very top! The star line up is epic beyond proportions and I am really feeling the melanin love in this one. I just got back from two week in Kenya and the accent and wardrobe portrayals are taking me back to the mother land. “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. If you don’t recognize any of those names you have not been watching the hottest movies and cable series of 2017. Take a look at the cast. Did I not tell you the wardrobe for this movie was [Click here to continue reading]

At my house, that’s my role. I make sure the sick person is taking their medicine on schedule, staying hydrated and eating. I’ve always been prepared when it came to playing nurse, but not when it came to me being the patient. The medicine cabinet was always well stocked with things the kids needed to get better, but not always things my husband or I needed. As parents, we can be [Click here to continue reading]

Roasted Garlic Chicken and Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar Salad Dressing | New Year, New Me Meal

This post was sponsored by NAKANO® Rice Vinegars as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.  I’ve kicked off the new year by getting back to better eating habits and I’m still going strong. During the holidays I ate every sweet and savory thing I wanted, but once the first week of January rolled around I got back on track with meal planning. Prepping meals ahead has been my number one way to make sure I’m making conscious decisions about what I eat. One of the easiest proteins for me to prep ahead is chicken. When paired with NAKANO® Rice Vinegars it becomes even easier. NAKANO® Rice Vinegars come in several amazing flavors that can be used as a marinade, salad [Click here to continue reading]

New Year Healthy Morning Meal Routine

Okay so I’m not looking too bad for 2+ months out the gym. I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t even try to work out all of winter 2017. Before November even arrived, I’d made up in my mind it was too cold and my schedule was too crazy. After that realization, I quit working out cold turkey so I could enjoy the busyness of the holiday and family. Not having the pressure to stay fit while eating so many delicious fatty foods during the holidays was amazing. Now that the holidays are over I can resume good eating and working out while actually enjoying it. My current weight is 133.5 which is the most I’ve weighed in a while. After thirty or so [Click here to continue reading]

5 Ways to be a “do-it-all” hostess without doing it all

This shop/post has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #KrogerPizzaDeal #CollectiveBias I’m hosting for the holidays, have 6 family birthdays between November 22 and December 25th, plus Christmas shopping, gift wrapping, and a New Year’s Eve dinner. Quarter four of this year is absolutely hectic, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. One thing I’ve learned is that family is everything and spending as much time with them especially around the holidays is important. This time of year can be overwhelming with all of the dinners, pot-lucks, and parties, so I try to incorporate convenience meals to lessen the burden. After hours prepping and cooking for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I don’t want to think about [Click here to continue reading]
