This mother’s day all I want is to relate to those beautiful people walking the malls, strolling with their kids to the park and those perfect women that we see in the spotlight.

A Good Man Walks Among Strong Women – Lessons For My Sons

A Good Man Walks Among Strong Women – Lessons For My Sons

Studies have shown that girls as young as six are influenced by gender stereotypes, and that role models from the entertainment they chose can have a lasting effect.¬† What about the boys? Do gender stereotypes focused on female leads send the same influence to their male counterparts? Seems that the way we model women in the media DOES in fact have a big impact on our young sons too. While raising my own two boys I have noticed that a lot of their perceptions of women are not just made…

Spring Color Pop – Makeup Addict Lip Vinyl Review

When it comes my lips, it is pretty safe to say that I am a neutral color girl – meaning anything that resembles a color that is not the same color of my lips does not usually get put on them.

Summer Mom Essential- The Mom-o-kini

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ The words¬†bangin‚Äô bikini just don’t seem to apply much after you have children, unless you are Jessica Alba or Kim Kardashian of course. But keep in mind that there are other options to keep you covered and still make you look and feel sexy.¬†One thing I have struggled personally with is ditching the bikini for a one-piece bathing suit, especially because I feel like that is the transition to being a ‘geezer’ on the beach – I just ain’t ready for that. Enter the monokini, or as I…

Jana Kramer Feeds Her Child The Unthinkable!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________ – – Recently, the¬†32-year-old actress, Jana Kramer hit the supermarket to purchase some baby food for her adorable daughter, and to everyone on social media’s dismay – it was jarred organic food NOT homemade from scratch.

Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________     A couple of days ago I came across a post in a mommy group that has been on my mind ever since, it was a simple question about what age little boys should stop ‘seeing’ their mothers naked. Got me thinking, not because the question was relevant- because to me it really isn’t, but because I cannot believe that in this day and age we are actually harping on issues like this.

Mama’s getting inked…again! Tattoos & Parents.

Ready for my secret reveal? I am finally going to share with the world a piece of me‚Ķ I am a tattooed mama- though you would never know it- I am. When I was younger I never thought of the idea of getting a tattoo as much of a choice. In my family, we just didn‚Äôt think to even ask or do something so altering to our bodies. Then my brother-in-law came into the family- tattooed, pierced and a full on tattoo artist too. Within a few years, we were…
