Today Is Giving Tuesday…

Traditionally, today is an opportunity for non-profit organizations to ask for donations to fund their programs. On the other end, many people use Giving Tuesday to make end of the year tax deductible donations. In 2012, Giving Tuesday was created to simply encourage people to do good within their communities. Doing good can be provided in the form of financial or in-kind donations. Or the goodness of giving can be accomplished in other forms of community support.

Personal gifts – its still giving. For those who are financially able, consider giving a monetary gift to someone in your personal circle, work network, or associates; other than your immediate family and friends who you just exchanged gifts with. Get a card and put some money in it (as the old people say). In place of cash, you can give a gift card. That coworker who has gone back to school or your neighbor who has a college student; both are racking up multiple by the minute. Ride share, grocery store, or airline gift cards are great examples of financial giving with a personal touch. While this is not tax deductible its a tremendous sowing into your community on a more intimate level.

Shop Thinx (BTWN)! Period-proof undies for tweens & teens.

Small business owners – they need the support. This is different than supporting their Black Friday Sales. The small business owner in your circle that doesn’t have the capital that others may have can use a a monetary gift or gift card to pay for postage or buy supplies. Or they simply need it for dinner for their family next week while they’re packing orders. If you’re not in the place to support financially, inquire how you can volunteer your time to the business. You may not know the impact of your gift, but you have helped someone move closer to meeting their life goals.

Helping hand – those that we pass on the street. Those $1 or $5 bills we have in our wallets that we get back as change. Instead of walking pass our local homeless people in fear, take some time to go out prepared with cash in hand to give to that person you know is sleeping on the side of the building or in their car. Don’t worry about this program or that program. Don’t question what will be done with your change. As homelessness in the U.S. is at epic levels, we all can play a role in the safety and well-being of human beings in our neighborhoods. Data shows that everyday the working poor and middle class workers are living in homelessness more and more. You will contribute to the safety and well being of another human being.

Words & Kindness – are always needed. If you don’t have money then give kindness, or encouragement to those you encounter. Smile at children that come your way as you go about your day. This let’s them know they are seen in a positive light. Tell a mother how beautiful her children are. Give a positive review to the young man who bagged your groceries. Make a conscious effort to look people in the eye and speak to them. “Hello! How are you?” Your kindness will bring sunshine to another.

Hold Space – step back and center another person. Call and talk to a friend you haven’t talked to in a while; give them your time and attention while listening to them share what’s going on in their life. Reach out to someone who is grieving or mourning a loss or someone who is recovering. Give them time in your world to share their feelings and experiences without judgment and intrusive questions. Merely, hold space for them to release while you are present in their world. You will validate their existence while standing in loving support of another soul.

And if you can’t do the above today, tomorrow is fine. Next Friday; your next payday, works as well. And if you don’t have the financial means, you have the time and heart-space. You and your heart are needed to make community strong and health. Today is Giving Tuesday and your community needs your gift.

Happy Giving Tuesday!

Awesome Moms Gear: Plus-Size Nursing Tank Tops

For breastfeeding moms who desire to feed discreetly, I often suggest layering their clothing by wearing a tank top under their blouse or shirt. Raising the top layer up from the bottom and lowing the second tank and your bra down from the top can be an easy way to keep mom’s belly covered and the bulk of her breast out of sight. In some cases, mom may want an actual nursing tank top to complete their outfit. For plus-size moms, it might be difficult to find nursing tank tops in their size. I have gathered some plus-size nursing tank top options for moms to choose from. Take a look and let me know what you think.

I will revise this list as new items are released or I’m made aware of them.

Do You Know Your Baby’s Hunger Cues?

Hunger is a major topic for the breastfeeding family. Whether the concern is if the baby is getting enough to eat at each feeding session or if mother’s milk is enough for the baby, parents may not understand the signs of hunger in their baby. Let’s review the signs of hunger in your breastfeeding newborn and what these signs are communicating to you.

Just like you, your baby can communicate their level of hunger. Our job is to pay attention and respond in a timely manner. In my connections with families, I recommend latching the baby to the breast when the baby is licking their lips and putting their hands in their mouths. As we explore the different signs you will see why.

THINX Period-Proof Underwear.

Wiggling – You may see this after your baby has just woken up from a nap or in the midst of the baby sitting for a period of time. In some cases, your baby may need to eliminate or it could be the early signs of hunger. This is a sign that is easy to overlook because it can appear that your baby is simply adjusting their position. When you see this, watch your baby or begin to prepare for breastfeeding. Now is the time to get to your comfortable chair or get your pillow.

Licking Their Lips – This is another sign that can be overlooked. However, it speaks to hunger directly. Think of how you feel when your mouth is dry and you are ready for a drink of water, especially after waking up in the morning or after a nap. At this point, its safe to assume your baby is ready to latch. Please note, this is at a time when babies are still relatively calm; which makes latch easier. If you have not prepared to breastfeed, now is the time. If you need to cover, make sure you have it and are ready to use it.

Breast Pads

Hands/Fingers In Mouth – Your baby may appear calm or a bit frantic; depending on their temperament. I strongly suggest putting the baby to the breast now because the next stage of hunger moves quickly. If latch is an issue for mom, she may feel like the baby does not want the breast or the latching process may become overwhelming for her if the baby becomes upset. This is the stage when helpers can remind or suggest to mom this is a good time to put the baby to the breast if mom is away from the baby or has not seen the baby put their hands or fingers in their mouth.

Rooting – The baby is actively looking for the breast by turning their head side to side and trying to get the breast into their mouth. This is when our Genius Baby shows their natural awesomeness – I Can Do This Myself Mom! Many moms feel like the baby is being ‘grown’ because the baby is using their own hands to get to the breast. This is actually a stage of early distress and elevated hunger. Latch might be more difficult during this time for a mom who is not confident in her ability to latch the baby pain-free or effectively. Take deep breaths and remember the latching techniques you have learned. For friends and family who are holding the baby, this is the time to give the baby to mom as she needs to feed her baby. 

Crying – While many use crying as the only sign of hunger, we have missed all of the above and our baby is in full distress. I strong suggest that we latch the baby to the breast before we get to this point. And that we do not use crying as a primary communication method. This is a new thought for many families; but the benefits to breastfeeding, mom’s confidence, and the baby’s overall development are worth the effort to make this change. In some cases, the baby will latch effortlessly once the breast is presented. In other cases, the baby may need to be calmed down before mom can get a pain-free and deep latch. Bring the baby into a skin-to-skin position and speak to the baby in a calm voice. After a few minutes the baby will calm and the latch can be attempted again.

As you can see, your baby can communicate with you. Knowing these hunger signs will help you be present and more empowered during your breastfeeding journey. Latching before your baby begins to cry as much as possible and breastfeeding will be more peaceful and enjoyable to you and your baby.

Madame President! Did you cut your hair?

Having been in the natural hair community since 2007, I have learned the first question people ask when someone cuts their hair is, “OMG! Why did you cut your hair?”

*cue slow eye roll*

So I cut my hair on Monday, December 17, 2018. The day before my 48th birthday. I cut off the hair that I have been growing since 2007. It was very long. And I cut it.

What? Oh you still want to know why I cut my hair?

Because I wanted to.

It’s really that simple.

32866344_1769143409819558_2146813109115813888_oOk! Ok! There might be a little more to it. I was tired of my hair. My long curly hair, that was down to my butt when strengthened. Yes! That’s how long it was the last time I pressed my hair a few years ago.  I have had a several trims and a shaping by the wonderful Keyonna Tillman of Kurlified by Keyonna a few years ago. And as beautiful as my long curls were, I was tired, bored, and a bit frustrated with them. The time it took to care for them was wearing me out. I have an extremely busy schedule and taking 45+ minutes to wash my hair was wearing me thin. The actual styling of my hair was a breeze. I could get that done in about 15 minutes. 37700158_1859421324125099_4294066787386916864_oNo. I did not want braids. No. I did not want to try twist, braids, or any other kind of outed style. I simply wanted to cut my hair. So, after years of stalking short hair photos I found a few that I liked and I took them to a stylist friend of mine and I let her cut the bulk of my curls off.

I’m loving that wash days are a breeze. Styling is a bit more work, but the overall process is much quicker. I can have an hour to get dress and wash and style my curls and make it out of the house on time. I call that WINNING!

So there you have it! I cut my hair.

48391889_2063251193742110_67154321933860864_o

Now this will be the last time I answer the question, “OMG! Why did you cut your hair?” So when you see me share this link, know the slow eye roll is happening. You know how I’m looking. Yeah! That look!

If you cut your curls, congrats! I hope you’re enjoying your short curls like I’m enjoying mine.

…thought I was going to ask you why you cut your hair lol!

I know! Because you wanted to!

#ILoveToWriteDay2018

Journal. Notebooks. Calligraphy. Doodles. Poems. Short Hand. Essays.

Happy #ILoveToWriteDay

Today, is a day devoted to anyone who loves to write. Whether you are a professional writer or someone who has discovered that doodling helps with your anxiety while sitting in a meeting. According to John Riddle, creator of I Love To Write Day, the day is meant to “have people of all ages spend the day writing.”

Your writing possibilities are endless. You just need some writing tools. Some prefer their computer or laptop and others are faithful to pen and paper. Personally, I am a fan of both new technology and a pretty pen and notebook. My preference is based on what I’m writing. Work and school related material that has to be submitted or shared professional, I prefer technology. Note taking, journal entries, and personal writing have to be by hand. And the tools have to be pretty and fancy. I love big and bulky pens. My journals and notebooks have to be unique and speak to my personality. Here are a few of my favorite journals that I would recommend to others or give as gifts:

Journals

  1. This antique handmade leather bound daily notepad with unlined paper is great for daily diary writers or free hand journal entries.
  2. These journal notebooks are colorful and great for daily diary entries, travel journal entries, or for college students’ notes.
  3. The Tree of Life Journal comes with a cord closure and hand itched design; which makes it perfect for those who want a very unique journal notebook.
  4. This faux letter journal notebook is refillable and comes in a variety of shades and cover designs.
  5. This leather journal set comes with a metallic pen, unlined paper, and wrapped in antique leather all in a beautiful gift box making it a great gift for a boss or seasoned writer.

Pens

  1. This luxury ballpoint pen writing set with genuine leather handmade pouch is elegant and makes a thoughtful gift for your serious writer and pen lover.
  2. The IdealPool Rosewood Writing Set is luxurious and elegant; making it a great gift for your executive or fancy writer.
  3. This set of refillable calligraphy pens for beginners comes with 4 different sizes of black ink pens with brush tip. It is a great starter set for calligraphy students!
  4. Journal writers will love this 10 color pen set that comes with drawing stencils that are perfect for planners and scrap-booking.
  5. This vintage Rosewood fountain pen will be a cherished pen of experienced and seasoned handwriting lovers.

As a current college student my writing skills have improved greatly. However, I am fully aware that I have room for improvement. I keep my library stocked with writing resources to reference to regularly. Writing, for many, does not come easy. For this reason, I keep a list of writing guides to share with new writers and students. These are great gift ideas during spring break, trunk parties, and winter holidays when students are home from school or for those interested in making writing part of their daily life or career:

Books

  1. Elements of Style is a writer’s Bible! It is the classic style manual for every writer. Writers and students need this book in their personal library as a staple reference. This is a great gift for high school and college students and new bloggers.
  2. On Writing Well – The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction is a praised guide for proving sound advice with clarity and warmth that is meant for everyone who wants to learn how to write or who needs to write to get through the day.
  3. Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content is 4.6 rated instructional book that will guide any business owner or influencer in creating content that is eye catching and thought provoking.
  4. 7 Essential Writing Tools: That Will Absolutely Make Your Writing Better (And Enliven Your Soul) is a 5 star rated book that invites you to fall in love with the magic that is writing with writer-tested and approved tools on story structure, scene creation, plot, voice, and character presentation.
  5. The Writer’s Toolbox: Creative Games and Exercises for Inspiring the Write Side of Your Brain is an innovative kit that includes exercises and instructions that focus on the right-brain approach to writing and other tools that any aspiring writer can use to step into literary greatness.

Take on today’s charge and write something that makes you happy. Let’s make writing a part of our daily self-care routine. We will touch those feelings and thoughts that we keep deep within and so desperately want to release. Whether we share with the world or not is not the focus. We simply need to write to acknowledge what we carry in our heart.

Get your journal and pen and write!

*hugs*
