Summer is filled with family fun and celebrations for us. Kay will be 4-years-old tomorrow (2nd), the 4th of July, my birthday on the 10th, my brother-in-law on the 11th, my niece on the 17th and the list goes on and on. Of course, there will be plenty of parties, gifts and greeting cards passed […]


Graduation is a major milestone. Whether it’s from kindergarten, high school or college, they all matter. It means that you stuck to it…through the good, the bad and the ugly…you pushed on. I totally understand the feeling because my it seems that school has always been hard for me. Not academically, but just things that […]


When it Comes to Your Hair, Just #DoYou #spon

by Notorious Spinks on 06.16.2014

When I think of hair styling, I’m instantly taken back to my days as a child. I remember sitting on the floor each morning as my mom would comb my hair. She would choose this time to make me eat breakfast as my hair fell in my bowl of grits while she pulled my hair, […]


In a week or so, it will officially be summer. What’s summer without the essentials, right? As for me, I’m not a big summer person (that heat) but I’m here for it. First on my agenda is get ready for the summer heat by adding to my sundress collection. Yes, I love my dresses and […]


The closet figure I have to a dad is my brother-in-law.  He always has a nonjudgmental listening ear, gives great advice and he is always there when I need him. It doesn’t matter if it’s a flat tire, unscrewing a top from a jar or suggesting a good Blu-Ray or DVD to watch. Most importantly, […]

Can you keep a secret? It’s a wet one, too.  You see, I have always suffered from sinuses and allergies and it is getting worse with age. Seriously, I sneeze and blow my nose everyday, many times throughout the day. I have to keep Kleenex, hand sanitizer, feminine wipes and panty liners pin my purse. […]


Sinus and allergy season is in full-swing. It seems that many of the people I know are suffering from sinus drainage, allergy and asthma attacks, and the season has just started. Like millions of others, I suffer from sinus and allergy problems and according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, patients have already […]


One of my favorite foods is pizza. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, hot or cold. I just love me some pizza. On Wednesday, I got to see what happens behind the scenes at Papa Murphy’s Pizza. You know, where the magic happens, where the pizza gods commune and all that good stuff. […]


This June will mark the third anniversary since my mom passed and it’s still hard to bear sometimes. However, because of my loss I have a renewed respect for the mother-daughter relationship. This relationship tends to be unique, not always perfect, but worth it in the long run to nurture and cultivate. That’s where Walmart […]


Dear Fear, I Quit You!

by Notorious Spinks on 05.02.2014

Dear Fear, I QUIT YOU! Truth be told, you’ve been lurking around here too long. Because of you, I have failed to accomplish many of the goals I set for myself. You make me feel… unworthy. When you show up I start to second guessing my plans, my abilities, my being… But if I’m honest, […]
