2016 Oscars Best Dressed 

If you didn’t tune into the Oscars you missed both a fun filled and entertaining night! Chris Rock did an amazing job keeping the jokes flowing in spite of the controversy that arose leading up to the event in regards to the lack of African American  nominees. Below are my top favorite looks of the night! 

  
Cate Blanchett in Armani (my favorite of the night)!

  
Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell
  
Jennifer Garner in Versace
  
Margot Robbie in Tom Ford
  
Kerry Washington on Versace (looks a little Matrix like, however still very stunning)!

Mother of Three: The Balancing Act

So after having my third child I quickly learned just how busy my life had become. I can honestly say that I had more time prior and took it for granted. I believe the toughest part about being a mom of three is being able to give each child the attention he/she needs. 

I remember when my daughter was an infant, my son couldn’t wait for her to fall asleep and ask “So mommy what do you want to do with me?” Of course I was exhausted as any mom would be after caring for a newborn and a toddler. On Most occasions, “mommy and me time” didn’t last very long because by the time I did what I needed to do (like shower) and then play with my son, my daughter would wake up. Furthermore, my son was uninterested in all three of us playing and is the same way today. 

I cannot say that I have figured out a way to balance my time amongst the three, but I am trying. More so  with my daughter. Since she is my shadow and literally watches my every move, its important to me that I spend as much time as I can showing her how to be a young lady. Also so she doesn’t have the “middle child complex syndrome”as my husband often says. Lol.  

As for my boys, I am not really worried about them. Even though they need mommy too, its in a different way. I will always be there for them, however they will have to rely on their father to teach them the ropes of how to be men with honor. 

It is my prayer everday that God will help me to be the best mother to my kids, to lead by example and help them know the Lord as they should. I understand that I am a work in progress.  I truly believe that if I trust in the Lord He will lead me through any obstacle, including the highs and lows of being a parent as He will for you. 

Stay tuned for the follow up. Be blessed!

Celeb Pick of the Week-Lily James

  
Wow there is just something about this look that I just adore! Ms. James definitely rocked it at the premiere of her film,  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies held in London this past Monday. Her stripped crop top and full skirt by Erdem shows just the right amount of skin providing a sexy and sultry look. The two piece also featured a mini train and included pockets, which you know I looove!
