I’ve always been an advocate for breastfeeding….but let me be clear, I had my limits. I used to give a major side-eye to moms that breastfed for unimaginable lengths of time, like beyond a year. Ugh! I didn’t understand it. It seemed weird, unnatural, and like some strange mother-child dependency thing that just went on way too long. Clearly, a breastfeeding mother carrying on for this length of time needed some sort of intervention to end this inappropriate behavior.
I am a career-driven mother of 3 dedicated to the health, spiritual, and emotional well-being of moms.
Doctor by day, a ton of fashion on the side, and mother 24/7. Meet Dr. Kiarra King! She is a Board Certified Obstetrician Gynecologist, trendy fashion blogger, and a mother of a beautiful daughter! She is also one of Sassy Plum’s fashion/lifestyle contributors.
No no, see, this is not a game. This is serious business and I know I’m not the only one that comes from a family that operates under the Robert Rules of Thanksgiving Dish Determination. It’s not your average Sunday dinner, where folks are forgiving and the pressure is at a minimum. No, when your family members are SERIOUS Thanksgiving foodies, the stakes are high!
Can you believe it’s been a year since we’ve began this journey? It’s gone by so fast and we have learned so much from each other! Blogging is a great way to share information with our mama community based on our individual and collective experiences. From stay-at-home moms, to working moms, to many other stories along the way, we try to bring you a collection of voices that sing motherhood in many tunes. We hope you stick around because our voices are growing, and the best is yet to come!
I tried flat-ironing my daughter’s hair once and it didn’t work out for us. Don’t get me wrong, she looked absolutely fab u lous for the first 16 hours. She stayed in the mirror about 15 of those hours, primping and prancing, telling me how beautiful she was. It was the looongest 15 hours of my life.
When a mom can’t find what she’s looking for, what does she do? In good-ol mom fashion, of course she creates it herself! This is exactly what happened with mom Keewa Nurullah as she was shopping online for clothes for her infant son.
Welcome to Mom Ditch Day, where moms take a break from it all to celebrate ourselves!
Three years ago I started a mom group on Facebook. It wasn’t just any Facebook group, but a group that would be carefully crafted and tailored to moms that were the upmost supportive on all of our motherhood journeys.
Introducing the Little Miss and Mr. Men books to my own kids allowed me to relive my ENTIRE childhood! I can remember being a little girl and my mom reading these books to me when I was barely able to read myself.
If I’m ever missing a pair of shades, they are most likely in the possession of this little diva right here! She is literally my mini me and likes all the same accessories I like. Her fall dress is perfect for the changing of the seasons since it has 3/4 length sleeves. It’s Target’s most addictive line, Cat & Jack. The sparkle shoes (that coincidentally match the sparkle heart of the dress) are from H&M. The shades are from Charlotte Russe. Check out her backyard photo shoot below!
I’ve been a mom, like forever. I can hardly even remember when I wasn’t a mom. Don’t get me wrong, parenthood is amazing, stressful, glorious, exhausting, joyous, and infuriating all rolled up in one chaotic ball. But did I mention, it’s amazing? And guess what is doubly amazing….becoming an aunt!
I had no idea that becoming an aunt was something magical that is nothing like motherhood! I recently became the proud aunt of twin boys and I am over the moon! Why didn’t you all tell me it was this awesome? You’ve been holding out on a sista!
Moms discuss what it feels like to have the “Baby Blues,” anxiety, Postpartum Depression, and Postpartum Psychosis.
My daughter takes make-believe to the next level. She has an infant babydoll/family member that is always around. Wherever we go, she goes. Kind of like “my buddy” for those of you old enough to remember.
Diner en Blanc. The phenomenon, originating in Paris 29 years ago with 8,000 guests, stretches over 6 continents where people receive an exclusive invitation to flash-gather in a secret place, and perform an extravagant pop-up dining experience…. all white everything. White linen tablecloths, jewels and pearls, beautiful table settings. Tablescapes that will blow your mind away! And I was there for it all! This year I was invited as a guest and decided to chronicle the event! Here are the photos of my mom friends that were of the 4,000 in attendance in Chicago.
