One of the best things about being a parent is that you get to do all of the fun things that you always wished your parents would do for you. Yes, this includes going to Disney World. As a young girl, I was obsessed with going to Magic Kingdom and, because my parents were nowhere...

Fun fact: I love a good eyeshadow palette! I first developed a love for eyeshadow after becoming a full-time Beauty Editor working at a magazine. The beauty product mailings would come in droves and I would hoard the eyeshadow palettes to bring home for testing. I’d spend the weekend creating different looks with them. Of...

When I left New York, I thought for sure that I’d be back within a couple of months. I somehow twisted my mind into thinking the only reasoned I returned to Texas (aka home) was for my son. That, as a single mother, it only made sense for me to come back in order to...

Listen, much like any mom anywhere, I appreciate (and love!) a good mom break. I need it, it’s crucial, and all those moms that tell you that they don’t need one are a damned lie. (Yeah, I said it lol.) The problem is that they don’t get to happen very often. Also, if you aren’t pro-active...

I just wanted to take a second and share the link to my newest piece for Cosmopolitan. (Click here to read.) It’s always a big deal to me when my work is published on a major platform. Not only because I really love writing, but because it’s all I really want to be known in...
