    Hair Care Routine

    Okay y’all, I’ve finally written out my much desired hair care routine. As my followers have grown over on my Instagram, I’ve gotten so many compliments on my hair and requests for details – my favorite is when someone simply drops a “#HairGoals” comment on my pic! Growing up, I always lusted after the straight, smooth hair of my friends. But, I was the curly headed little girl who always wore a ponytail because neither I, nor my mom, could tame the mane. But now, as topknots, mom-buns, and messy braids have taken over social media, thick & wild hair is trendy! Nappy heads unite! I’m naturally blessed with thick,…

    #DOGMOM with Inspiration.fit

    In May 2015, in celebration of one year together, Cole and I added Beaux to our little family. He’s now a three-year-old, 90lb chocolate lab, with a special white patch on his chest. From the start, we’ve absolutely adored him and taken him everywhere we go. The first night we brought him home, we traveled to stay with friends in Tyler, Texas and took him along. Cole tried to make him sleep in the crate, but after 30 minutes of crying, we couldn’t take it anymore and the bed has been his ever since! We have a little saying – “if he can’t go, we can’t go”- and you can…

    Faith over Fear – Angel’s Journey

    After battling a knee injury that refused to heel and spending six months on crutches, our sweet and courageous cousin Angel Wilson was diagnosed with Spindle Cell Osteosarcoma and began her cancer journey at MD Anderson on July 18 of this year. She and her husband, Mike, quickly made plans to move from West Monroe, Louisiana to Houston, Texas so that she could be near her oncologist and treatment team. Last week, she completed Phase 1 of her treatment – 4 rounds of intense chemotherapy. Phase 2 will include a surgery to remove the tumor from her distal femur, and reconstruction of her knee. Recovery and rehab will follow, including…

    Three Mighty Warriors – with Shayna Staffa

    Through reaching out to Etsy makers in an effort to spread Angel’s story and get together a few inspirational items to cheer her up (more on that later), I connected with Shayna Staffa – owner of Three Mighty Warriors. Shayna, a bright-haired, tattooed, creative was raised Catholic but left the church soon after her high school graduation. As an atheist, she was hesitant to accept the invitation when her family asked her to join them at a new church last year. courtesy of @shayna.hugz “They would constantly invite me and minister to me about Jesus,” Shayna said. “I finally gave in and attended a few church services. Then I accepted…
