I was always taught to show love and support people even strangers from a young age. I’m the friend that you don’t have to ask to support you because I already got you. It truly brings me joy to see others succeed, especially my people of color. After, I started Modish Mommies I began to realize that all the love wasn’t being reciprocated, but I never let it get to me. It wasn’t until we had our first event and I had high expectations that people from around the way,

As you grow up, you begin to realize the effects your childhood has on you. For the most part, I had a good childhood, but like every family, my family had their shit with them too. When I was in fifth grade I found out the man that was raising me was not my father. My real father was around because he was my mom’s best friends’ cousin, which made things even more awkward because I knew him and his entire family. My mother knew the truth but figured that

Recently, Saia went to her dentist for her six-month checkup and it was an experience for both of us. Usually, the dentist does a quick check, brushes vitamins on her teeth and then we are done. But things didn’t’ go as planned this time. Instead, they gave her the standard cleaning and we both weren’t ready for it. As an adult I have to mentally prepare myself for a cleaning, so I felt so bad that I didn’t prep her for this appointment. At first, she sat still, then we

I come from a family full of educators and I was blessed to be around the HBCU experience at an early age. My grandfather was a band director at Grambling State University (GSU), so my love for the band and HBCUs is real! But as I got older, I was worried more about turning up than my education. I was a work in progress and didn’t give my all as I should have in high school. My family, of course, wanted me to continue the legacy at GSU, but I

I don’t know about yall, but I’m ready to take some trips! We all know there is nothing like a baecation or a girls trip. It’s so necessary for us to take a break from momming and just let loose every now and then but we can’t forget about the kiddos! Traveling with the family is so important because it allows you’re family to connect on another level, enrich their young minds and create everlasting memories. Fortunately, Saia has been able to travel since she was a baby. However, it

It’s been awhile, Modish Mommies! Motherhood has been keeping me on my toes and I’ve honestly been in a funk. Modish Mommies was created while I was pregnant because I couldn’t relate to any mom blogs, so my cousin and I created a mom platform geared towards moms of color. After a while, we decided to host events that focused on inspiring moms to become entrepreneurs and provided them with resourceful tools.  But over the course of time, I lost the excitement that I once had when we first started

I have been struggling with reaching my fitness goals for quite some time now. Although I did get my diet in order, for the most part, this baby weight will not come off unless I put in some work! Deep down inside I would prefer to fly to Miami and get a makeover, but I promised myself that I would at least try to work these pounds off. Hard work and consistency lead to results and honestly, I just haven’t been consistent. Adding the gym to my schedule is easy

The older I get, the more complicated New Year’s Eve plans become. I’m over the club scene for sure but still want to be surrounded by good vibes, drinks, and music of course. I decided to keep it real simple and have a small gathering at my house this year. However, if you are in the DMV and still don’t have plans, I have a few dope options you just might want to consider.

The new year is approaching and if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to put your life and goals into perspective. I started 2018 with many resolutions that I wanted to have accomplished around this time of year but unfortunately, that just didn’t happen. 2018 started good but after my boyfriend got into a horrific accident, my momentum towards my personal goals and business shifted. My lifestyle changed from a two-parent household to one and so did the income. Everything happened so fast, that I wasn’t able to process
