Knock Out the Flu

flu symptoms 2017

*This post “Knock Out the Flu” is sponsored by K-mart. However, all opinions are my own* We did back-to-school shopping for Ziana last month, but back-to-school doesn’t just mean getting the necessary supplies for your kid and making sure they get all their necessary shots, but it also means taking care of ourselves. There’s nothing worse when your child comes home sick from school over and over and over again.…

Couples Trip to Philadelphia

**The trip was semi-sponsored with Visit Philly and Sonesta hotel. However, all opinions are my own** I had the best weekend ever!! When you become a parent the days of sleeping in and getting up to go where ever your little heart desires quickly disappears. Being a parent you don’t sleep in for 12 hours or go on exotic vacations with your spouse or friends. Now, it’s a bit different-…

PJ Masks Live

PJ Masks We’re the PJ Masks PJ Masks We’re the PJ Masks It still amazes me when I sit and watch cartoons with my kids and actually sing-a-long to the catchy tunes. Ziana is all about her cartoons and one of her favorites are PJ Masks because they get to dress up as super heroes and kick some serious butt. Now that Ziana has a little brother who copies and…

Amazon Farmhouse Unboxing Purchases

Amazon Farmhouse Unboxing Purchases It’s no secret that I’m in love with, obsessed with and dream of living in a country farmhouse style of home. I always grew up loving country style homes– a huge two story home with a creepy attic and a wrap around porch to sit out on rainy days. However, I was never the kind of girl who cared about what the inside of my dream…

Carter’s Big Baby Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. When it comes to saving that “cash-money” as my 5-year-old would say I like to hold on to it tight. I’m somewhat of a penny-pincher. When I see a good sale I’m all over it, especially when it comes to clothing for the kids. When us moms/dads buy something we can wear it for years…

The 3 Best Parks in Queens

favorite parks in NYC

As a mother one of the things you kind of start becoming great at is finding pretty cool places to travel with your kids, one of them is parks. I always figured Manhattan or Central Park had the best places to hand out at, run around in and unique jungle gyms that I just got use to taking my daughter to the most dullest park around the block. That was…

Perfect Fall Slip On Shoes for all Outfits I’m pretty sure years prior summer was still around in September maybe even going into October, but nope not this year. The last weekend of August was already getting chilly and I had to already put on long sleeve the following week. Absurd? Well for me it was, but thankfully I thought ahead of time and started doing some fall shoe shopping…

first day of kindergarden

Five-years ago I gave birth to my first kid, Ziana Eliz. Fast-forward to today and she’s finally attending school. Sure, she attended Pre-k last year, but lets face it– Pre-k is play school. This is the first year it’s going to be a bit more towards what the rest of her years ahead are going to look like in school. It was also the first year I had to encounter…

Bring on the Stripes Can you believe this Labor Day weekend was the worst ever? The sun wasn’t out, rain clouds poured over us and chilly came by early to visit. It was the last chance I had to enjoy the beach, which I never made this year. Better luck next year! With the cooler weather now fast approaching it’s only right to start stocking up on new sweaters and…

Kissing My Kids on the Lips

kissing kids on lips bad

We can’t help but instantly fall in love, want to coddle and smother our babies in kisses, but many of our actions could raise such uproar and can be deathly dangerous. I’m the first to proudly and unapologetically say that I kiss my kids on the lips and make-out with their cheeks. I can’t help, but smother them everyday and grab them to lay one on them. I remember growing…
