The title 'Daily Cleaning Tips for Busy Moms' played on my nerves a little. I mean, what mom isn't busy? Even if you are a SAHM, and you have one kid, housework will still kick your butt! Never mind all the other things moms need to do! Nonetheless, I thought I would share a few [...]
Hey loves, I wanted to share six must-haves for the new mom with you guys. When I had my baby, I was starting from ground zero on the knowledge of …6 Must-Haves for the New Mom
I feel like much of the financial education advice put out there says it's geared to everyone and but doesn't tell us how to manage money in marriage, in general, or how to create wealth. I don't find that to be the case most of the time at all. Much of it considers the family [...]
The national Christmas drink in Jamaica is Sorrel. Period. I like my sorrel dark, strongwomen and spicy. I thought I would share how to make Jamaican sorrel drink in time for you to enjoy some over the holidays. Even though we drink it year-round, there's nothing better than a well-chilled glass of sorrel to accompany [...]
I am not now, nor have I ever been a breakfast person, but if I was, a 5 minute breakfast is exactly what I would be making. In fact, I used to fully hate having breakfast so much, I would dodge my mother in the mornings to avoid having breakfast or tea. She’d turn her [...]

Hey guys! I thought I’d do something a little bit different with this blog and share household items and products I’ve been loving and using for some…Cleaning Favorites – The Jamaican Edition Pt 1
Clearly, I'm crazy. Head gone, clean! And why is that, you ask? Well, because, I, me... Shandean has decided that in the year of our Lord, 2020 and chaos, I'm going to take on the beast that is Vlogmas. You're thinking that's not so bad, but hold the thought, Goodie has decided to attempt it, [...]
Being married to a doctor is brutal. Even more so when said doctor is a resident. From the time my husband and I started dating, his professional path was something that I took honest consideration about, among other things. Not to be a brat, but as someone who was a student nurse myself once upon [...]
I know this topic is discussed to death and there are opposing ideas on whether parents should put the children first in a marriage. I’m sure you can tell by the title of this post where my head is, but I would like to share my position and train of thought on a more in [...]
Do you guys argue? I get this question a LOT. Partly due to the fact anyone who knows my husband or has been in any proximity to him knows his general demeanour and disposition. Of course, people who know mine are a little more sceptical that the answer to the question would be 'no', but [...]
By now, I've been awake for a few hours. Yesterday was Mother's Day and if we're being honest, I spent it in bed. All of it. Right there is where my husband brought me coffee, showed me my gift and later brought me dinner. I roamed Netflix, social media every now and again and barely [...]
Many of us dream of things going back to the way they were before, but do we understand that whatever is there waiting for us on the other side of SARS-CoV-2 is not like it was before? A time when "The Great Pause" of a world perpetually on the move will be thing present only [...]
Apart, from the obvious things, COVID19 has pretty much redefined life as we know it. Notwithstanding the big things, there are so many every day, mundane activities that you're not able do or suddenly notice and it's quite sobering. Not that I make a habit of takin things for granted. I actively try not to. [...]

I published blog post this morning about flying solo with my daughter, and my husband wanted to share his side.
The other day, the need arose for Sio and I to travel alone. Up until that time, we traveled as a family. My husband was a tad concerned, asking numerous times if I was sure I'd be okay mostly because our child is frisskkyy!
To accurately describe the still very young journey of motherhood that I’m on is to fail, and do so miserably. What I can say, is that although I remember life before my nugget, it strangely seems she has always been here. Maybe it’s her energy that was here, helping us to love her even when [...]
Hey, guysss! It’s Q4 already. The final quarter or 2019. I hate to say it, but I’ve found myself in a dry patch where blog posts are concerned. I am at a loss with topics and though I try not to ‘post just to post’, that’s exactly what I’m doing right now and I have [...]
This morning as I had my coffee, I came across a video on Facebook where a twelve day old new born stopped breathing. The police stopped the speeding car and successfully revived the child and kept her breathing until paramedics arrived. I cried through the video. the mom looked like a new mom and I [...]
I cannot believe how fast this time is going! Then again, I can believe it. When I watch my once mild tempered child catch an attitude and lash out in 0.0001 seconds flat, I can believe it. She is not here to play bruh. Talking She is talking. Well, as clearly as a child of [...]
If motherhood has taught me nothing else, it is the true meaning of the phrase "beautiful mess" and the preciousness in appreciating every day and not letting life pass you by. This whirlwind of a journey has been indescribable from the start, but more importantly, I now understand the true preciousness of time and living in the [...]
