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

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

Hey Modish Mommies! I wanted to write about a topic that impacts all of us. It is something that everyone uses and is crucial to how we live our lives. Today I want to discuss communication. It has been proven that the majority of human communication is non-verbal. I am always astounded by this when I think about impact. I find myself making the assumption that unless I say it, the message hasn’t been conveyed. However, if the majority of communication is non-verbal, nothing has to be said at all

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

Saia’s dad and I always tried to implement healthy eating habits in our home but we could never stick to it. Before I had Saia, I just knew my child would eat organic everything and never eat fast food (except for Chick-Fil-A lol) but some days McDonald’s ended up being our only option. Recently, I noticed that she was constantly asking me to eat McDonald’s even on days when I cooked a home cooked meal. I began to feel guilty as a parent because I never wanted my child to

As a busy mom, it can be difficult to get the quality of sleep that is necessary for you to maintain your overall physical, emotional, and mental health- especially for moms who have infants or toddlers. You see, human beings are not born knowing how to put themselves to sleep. In fact, this was one of the biggest shocks to me as a new mom. Who knew that setting up the perfect nursery with a comfortable crib, would not be enough to ensure that my baby would fall asleep when

I’ll admit it, potty training my daughter hasn’t been an easy process. Some days are better than others but I cringe when other moms talk about their child using the pot pot because I’m honestly over the process. So I’ve decided to take a step back and really create a plan that should make this process easier for the both of us. If you are a feeling the potty training woes like me, just know that you are not alone and we can do this together! I just got straight
