Update: Life Will Go On.

I know things have been a little quiet around here lately.  Life has been one crazy roller coaster after another.  I can barely go on my computer to post on my blog without any distractions (have so much on my mind!!) and most days, I can barely make out a complete sentence when I'm either speaking or writing. If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and/or Facebook, then you know I'm pretty active in those areas but when it comes to attending blog events or writing on my blog, I just … [Read more...]

We Can Stop HIV One Conversation at a Time #OneConversation

Disclosure: This post is made possible by support from the We Can Stop HIV One Conversation at a Time campaign. All opinions are always my own. As parents, it’s our job to help, protect and guide our children on the right path to be safe, successful and law abiding citizens. It’s also our job to talk to them about how to be safe in their sexual relationships when they’re at the appropriate age or when they’re (gasp) ready. If parents are not talking to their children about sex, especially … [Read more...]

A Love Letter To My One and Only Love.

You know me. I usually don't put our personal life out on the internet. It's our private life and no one needs to know our business.  But this time is different. I'm writing this letter to let you know. This love of ours just can't go. I never knew how happy I would be. Till you showed me how love can be...... Guess the song. 😉 Ok on a serious note: 19 years ago today, we got married by the justice of the peace in Yonkers. It was just an ordinary day. Nothing special. No … [Read more...]

We all know that winter is the most important time to keep your skin well moisturized. In fact, I recently wrote all about one of my favorite lotions. If you haven't read my post about Lubriderm, click anywhere on this link to learn more about it. Most of us know that feeling of dry, flaky, itchy skin during this time. You'll find me applying lotion in the morning, throughout the day and before I go to bed.  I'm always applying moisturizer where ever I am. Being that I use lotion so much, I … [Read more...]

Nueva Vida – A New Hope #SomosFiOS

Throw Back Thursday: Halloween Edition #tbt #Halloween

Does anyone post #tbt on their blogs nowadays? I haven't noticed any. I usually see them on Instagram but I decided to post it on the ol' blog since I rarely post personal stuff anymore (that will change!). As I was looking thru old photos, I found several photos I took from my mom's house that I had planned to scan onto my computer. Here's what I found: This is me as Wonder Woman. I was in first grade. Wonder Woman was my idol at the time so naturally I thought I was bad! I remember when … [Read more...]

Ramblings: My Weekend in a Nutshell ~ July 4th

Hey everyone! How was your 4th of July? I hope you all had a wonderful 4th! As for me, my weekend was great. I spent it with my lovely family. The best part was that it was low-key and without a schedule. I also cleaned, I cooked many meals and I baked a cake. Which also means I ate a lot -- more than I would like to admit. I did do a few squats here and there but it's nothing like doing the squat challenge - which I've got to start again. I also did the treadmill. I probably burned … [Read more...]
