What’s your ritual when it comes to self-care? As women, we truly have superpowers taking care of everyone else. However,  often-times we leave our own well-being on the back burner. As a mom, I definitely seek out small fractions of “me time.” That may consist of brunch with my girls, getting my hair or nails done and of course, indulging in pampering sessions that include using the new Dove’s shower foam body washContinue reading →

Happy Birthday to meeeeee! Yassss–Aquarius season is in full effect. As a winter baby it can be hard to plan and coordinate an outing when there’s  generally a snow storm on your birthday. Well not this year! As a 30 something woman, like most older people, I didn’t want a late night out partying at a club. So I chose the next best thing–BRUNCH at a popular midtown Manhattan restaurant with igloos on the roof! It’s called 230 Fifth  Rooftop Bar.

Happy New Year’s Everyone!

Happy New Year’s everyone! Even though we’re 5 days into 2017, I’m still hopped up on the holiday spirit. That’s right–my Christmas tree is still up, I still want to bake cookies and watch the Hallmark channel and I want to wear sequin EVERYTHANG.

For the the New Year I celebrated with friends and family absolutely no resolutions. For me, once I make a resolution, I end up quickly forfeiting it. If I say I want to lose weight at 12am on the new year, by 12:01 I’m already craving sweets. I find it best to make small, attainable goals for myself beforehand. For example, stop drinking my calories and just drink water. I went out and bought this cute BKR water bottle and you know what? I haven’t bought juice or soda in about two weeks.

Christmas Shopping Guide

Stocking Stuffers $10 and Under
Did you take advantage of the Black Friday deals or Cyber Monday sales? I did! I’ve been in the Christmas spirit since early November and couldn’t wait to start my Christmas shopping. However, this year, this mama is sticking to a budget and a specific list. Along with gifting friends and family larger gifts, shopping for stocking stuffers is also fun!
For those people that participate in the office Secret Santa or just want to give out cutesy gifts, I’ve compiled a few of “Khadijah’s Favorite Things (a la Oprah’s favorite things without the hefty price tag).
My favorite stocking stuffers on the list above are:
1-Red Scarf by Old Navy
Old Navy is having some major sales. I love stocking up on winter accessories to prepare myself for the following winter season. Scarves are such a universally flattering gift that anyone would love.
2-Choker
90’s style is all the rage right now, so the $9 chocker is definitely a great trendy and affordable gift.
3-Rituals Body Lotion
 I love, love, love, the light scents of Rituals products. This delicious body cream is only $10!
Honorable mention–the Vaseline Holiday Rosy Lip Therapy Tin available exclusively at Target!
The gifts above are mainly for the beauty and fashionista lovers in your life. Which stocking stuffer is your favorite?
