Growing up in the South, I always thought lice was something that affected uneducated people in the deep back woods of Georgia who went to UGA. However, this myth was broken when Mo was sent home early with LICE. Yes, of course the kid with the thickest, longest, curliest hair gets lice. OMG, what a […]
People Magazine has revealed it’s Most Beautiful Woman. Drumroll please……. It’s Nora Moore JENNIFER LOPEZ. Congratulations Nora Jenny from the Block. I have no idea what their criteria is for this accolade, but I have always loved and admired J-Lo’s azz determination and drive. When she had her twins, I loved her even more. There […]
I recently attended a fundraiser for Sweet Blackberry. No, I’m not referring the my beloved smart phone. I’m talking about the non-profit organization whose mission is to bring little known stories of African American achievement to children everywhere. Actress, and mother of 2, Karyn Parsons (A.K.A Hilary Banks) was inspired to create Sweet Blackberry by the […]
I always talk about how hard it is to get pictures of me with the boys. Since Annie Leibovitz isn’t on my speed dial, I rely on friends and family to get in some candids of us whenever possible. It is always a disater adventure. It would be nice if Mo looked at the camera, […]
There are so many moms in Hollywood now. It almost seems tres chic to have kids in Tinseltown. However, being a mom shouldn’t mean compromising style *gasp*. I was very disappointed in the fashion frocks for many A-List mommies at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards. Ladies, fire your stylists. Call me next time. Thumbs down […]
It is a fact that I love soccer. When I was a little girl, I played soccer so I was excited for Mo to embark on his 1st organized soccer experience. I thought it was a funny coincidence that I came across my old picture when I played on a under 14 team. Why does […]
I hate washing my hair. I prolly wash my hair 3x/month. Yeah, I know…it’s gross, but come on….it’s long, thick, messy. It just takes too much time and energy. Besides, dirty hair styles better, right? So, like many moms, getting my hair did, is not high on my priority list. Mostly because I just don’t […]
Since I live in California, it’s pretty much bikini season 10 months out of the year.
As wonderful as it is, it can also get costly and painful. Help is here!!!!
Treats For The Face is the only place I go when it comes to body waxing.
Many women hate going for a bikini wax, me included. But, Treats For The Face truly make the experience as painless and unintrusive as possible.
In addition to being endorsed by tons of LA celebs (Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale are regulars), they have been featured in Allure, People, and US Magazine. They have earned Citysearch’s “Best Place to Wax” for 3 years. They definitely deserve it. Here’s why:
2. They use a low-heat Chocolate Gummy Bare wax. Let me tell ya, this wax is amazing. It’s oily and they don’t use the paper strips to remove it. They just peel the wax off by hand. It is way more painless than ripping it off with those paper strips. It also makes the treatment go by so fast. I was in and out in less than 4 minutes.
3. Veronica, the owner is so professional, yet nurturing. I remember once I went and was a “little” dramatic (gasp…imagine that) and let out a toddler scream…she looked at me sweetly, and said polietely, “Honey, relax and take a deep breath“, and before I could exhale, I was finished. She is such a warm person with a calm and friendly demeanor that she puts you at ease in a situation that can easily be uncomfortable (especially for someone shy like me ).
4. Their prices are reasonable at $60 for a Brazillian wax. And because I love you, here’s a $5 off coupon.
5. They offer much more than waxing services. They do hair extensions, hair color, eyelash extension, airbrush tanning, and facials. They even have a boutique that sells cute/hip clothes, beauty products, and cool fun fashionable must haves.
No waxing is 100% painless, but Treats For the Face makes it as pleasant, quick, and painless as possible. Besides, when you’re looking and feeling great in your swimwear or whatnot, it is totally worth it.
Halloween was a great success this year. However, I had a hard time finding a costume for B to actually wear. I tried an Elmo hand-me-down that Mo wore when he was 2. Although B likes the Elmo character, he would have NO PARTS of donning the fuzzy red suit. He really likes cars and […]
Mo has always been a very observant child. When he became infatuated interested in girls at age 5, he also started to notice that losers men were aware of my presence. It became evident that the male attraction to females extended to beyond 5-6 years old. He saw that people were actually paying attention to […]
