To Our Boys - Have Courage And Be Kind!

With all that is going on in the world, I thought I would put my thoughts down on paper. I am both angry and dumbfounded about what has been going on for years in Hollywood.

If you don't know what I am talking about, it is 2 words - Harvey Weinstein. Big honcho who is accused of groping and raping women. I believe I recently read there is over 50 women who have come forward. Most of these women were either models or actresses.

Trendy Haircuts That Aren’t Trying Too Hard For Moms

I worked in the beauty industry for many years and have seen trends come and go. But for moms, we need to hold on to some trends that make our life a little easier.

For instance - the hair trends. We want haircuts that don't make us look like "mom". Kinda sounds a little weird since we are actually mothers. We have birthed these children and are raising them to be kind, successful adults. Fingers crossed right?

How Moms Should Survive The Holidays Without Loosing Their Crap!

With the pumpkins and corn stalks put away, there is another time of year quickly approaching.  This is one that has a lot of meaning and is very festive, but can also make steam come out of every mothers ears.

As you drive down your streets, you will see houses decorated with the colors of red and green.  These houses will be so bright, that it will take you a minute to see what all the decorations actually are.

During this time, you are encouraged to make incredible memories for your family.  But to be completely honest - the holidays are friggin exhausting.  You feel like you are in this vacuum and  every piece of you is being sucked out.  You are way too busy to "stop and smell the roses" to realize that the time is slipping away.

Finding The Girl I Used To Be! - Sky's The Limit

One day while I was sitting on the beach watching a group of girls frolicking in the ocean, a sadness engulfed me. It wasn't a feeling of sadness that would catapult me into a depression, but one where it felt like I needed a HUGE hug.

The girls were laughing and standing on each other's shoulders and doing back flips. This is what I used to do. By doing these flips, the girls had no idea what the outcome would be.  If they would receive the perfect score or hit the water with their face. There were many times where I would taste salt water for days.

The Higher The Ponytail - The Better The Day!

So all of us Moms can relate to this one definite thing - there will ABSOLUTELY be days filled with chaos and wanting to pull out your hair.  You will wake up with a knot in your stomach and think you can't get through another day.

You will wake up to a sink probably filled with dishes from the night before.  Too tired at the end of the day to load the dishwasher.  Let's be honest, the thought of housework after you have tucked the kids into bed (if they even go to bed) is not a turn - on.  You will avoid that dreaded sink at all costs.
