DIY HE Liquid Laundry Detergent #whirlpoolmoms

Lately, I’ve been brushing up on my domestic skills and I recently started making my own HE laundry detergent that works great in our Whirlpool Duet washer. Instead of talking about custom cycles as originally planned, I’d like to share my laundry detergent recipe instead. Before I get into the recipe, I’d like to updateContinue Reading

Apple Cinnamon Muffins With Streusel

Apple Cinnamon Muffins With Streusel

While I generally love anything with apples; applesauce, apple pie, apple jelly, apple whatever, I don’t eat the fruit (apples) as often as I’d like. I prefer an apple that is both equally sweet and tangy and those are hard come by. The apples I have eaten have either lacked sweetness or tanginess. Weeell, IContinue Reading

Slow Cooker Mixed Bean & Italian Sausage Soup

Slow Cooker Mixed Bean & Italian Sausage Soup

Italian sausage during grilling season is one of my weaknesses. The flavor of the sausage combined with a well done grilled taste, hint of BBQ sauce of a bun is enough for me. So when asked to try Johnsonville’s new Brat and Italian Sausage Burgers, I was super excited. Italian sausage in the form ofContinue Reading

On His Way To Pre-school

I never went to pre-school because the school put priority on the children who they thought “needed” it. Weird right? I don’t know what that was all about, but I know that times have changed and I know there are many benefits to attending pre-school even if the child is brilliant. Surviving the real worldContinue Reading

My Maybelline Silver Diva Runway Makeup Look

One of the things on my life list is to improve my eye makeup techniques. I am a bare faced diva by nature, but I do like adding a natural foundation for a more polished look and a little color to dress up my beady brown eyes. Just a little makeup goes a long wayContinue Reading

Three Inspiring Jamaican Female Artists

Three Inspiring Jamaican Female Artists

I returned home from Jamaica last Tuesday and I am still reflecting over the fabulous time that I had; the adventure, the laughs, the tears, the inspiration that ensued. I will spare the full nitty gritty and break it all down into a series of post-reflections, but today I want to highlight the lovely femaleContinue Reading

Living The Jetsons Life With Whirlpool Duet

It seems like just yesterday we were setting up our brand-new-to-us washer and dryer that we scored from Craigslist. It was an older Kenmore set from around the early 2000′s. Three years ago, we were basking in the glory of our washer and dryer that would enable us to do laundry in the comfort ofContinue Reading

For The Trendy & Stylish Kid: Cookie’s Shopping Haul

As the weather begins to transition from scorching hot, to a gentle cool, and Jayden grows a little taller, I realize that it’s time to do a little shopping to prepare him for the season. Marshalls, Old Navy, and Crazy 8 are the stores that I usually shop for Jayden’s clothing, but I think IContinue Reading

Living Feels Good

Living Feels Good

I’ve been blogging less it seems. Once or twice every 10 days. My internal blogging alarm is naturally set to do so. And there’s a reason for that. I’ve been living and taking the necessary steps to take care of myself and my family. I’ve been less active on Twitter and Facebook, which are commonContinue Reading
