It’s been a very eventful and fun filled weekend for me. My little man graduated on Friday and will be going to Junior High School in the Fall. And he turned 11 years old today. We’ve been celebrating all weekend with a BBQ, Go Kart Racing, a picnic and today we went out to eat at a burger spot and went to see Monsters University which was too cute. He’s becoming such a big boy and growing so fast that it makes me nervous. I noticed today that his voice is starting to crack, I’m not ready for all of this yet! lol










Little man really enjoyed his entire weekend and so did I. He drives me up the wall at times but I love my boy and I am very proud of him.

Little man’s outfit: Old Navy Shirt & Shorts | Nike Kevin Durant Sneakers


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    You look gorge as usual and your little man looks just like you. He is so blessed to have a strong, confident, beautiful black woman rearing him. You set the bar for him when it comes to women so you probably (prayerfully) won’t have to deal with the typical chickens that seem to be everywhere. He’s going to want women of substance and class. Keep up the good work. He looks like a happy, well-balanced young man on his way. Before you know it, it’s gonna be his high school graduation. My oldest graduated last year.

    That dress is EVERYTHING!!

    Peace and Blessings,

      Congrats to your oldest Shani and thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it. I am so nervous but I put in my all and pray for the best. As a parent that’s all you can do 🙂
