When I opened my email earlier today, I flipped the fuck out. Missguided x Barbie collaboration has dropped and I'm gagging over the pieces.
Me at the Botanical Gardens on Washington Avenue looks like another world!
Is the question that everyone asks me who is not from Brooklyn when I tell them where I’m from. Brooklyn folks are one of a kind, spicy, feisty and determined. We are educated and successful. Some of the world’s best people come straight from Brooklyn, more specifically Crown Heights. Some of my favorite Crown Heighters include Nas, Marty Markowitz, and the first woman to run for president Shirley Chisholm. Today, after much work and collaborative effort our borough is filled with monuments, buildings and activities to accurately reflect all the wonderful characteristics we have. 11225 is dynamic and home to some of the best attractions New York City has to offer. Within a 2 mile radius, we have parks, gardens, monuments and a plethora of museums. More than enough to keep one busy during any kind of weather.
Spending a day in Crown Heights where I grew up at can start 10 minutes away from my home at the Prospect Park Zoo. Walk one block and end up at the world famous Grand Army Plaza. Following that, we can cross the street to the Brooklyn Library Central Branch whose exterior is decorated in 14 karat gold hieroglyphics. A walk through the grand library leads you to the back of Mount Prospect Park and a 4 minute stroll leads you to the side of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with the great lawn and beautiful rose garden. Come in October for Cherry Blossom season and prepared to have your mind blown. 20 steps from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is the front of the Brooklyn Museum which features a beautiful fountain and steps. A rest destination packed with food trucks for those who have trekked around the park and the library. Once inside the Brooklyn Museum, visit one of the Pablo Picasso paintings we have but also be sure to visit any of the featured exhibits some past ones include Kaws, Kehinde Wiley, Georgia O’Keefe, Murakami and many others. But what most don't know is we also have a huge replica of Lady Liberty tucked away in the back of the parking lot.
With all that walking and sight-seeing you’re sure to be hungry. Within a 10 block radius, Crown Heights has a plethora of food offerings including West Indian, Indian, Mediterranean, Italian, French, Thai, Mexican, Japanese, American Burgers, coffee bars and the finest fast food NYC has to offer. Franklin avenue also boasts a number of bars with specialty happy hours and a desert bar for your sweet tooth. Describing Crown Heights sounds like you are in the middle of midtown New York but you’re not. Steps away from all the hustle and bustle of Washington and Franklin avenues are tree lined blocks, beautiful brownstone homes and most importantly family. Friday nights in the summer at CUNY MEC you can see a free jazz concert, Target First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum is a party. #PostalCodePride Come visit us sometime!

As a woman coming of age, I’ve always known how important my feminine health was. Since I was a young girl, I’ve had many issues and complications that lead to me being a little more wary in regards to not only my feminine health but leading a healthy sexual lifestyle as well. I was diagnosed with a cyst at a young age and later, following childbirth HPV. I made sure to get tested on a monthly basis whether or not I was switching sexual partners and I also kept up with my yearly PAP smears. Although HPV can resolve on it’s own, if left untreated it can lead to cervical cancer and other issues like infertility. Yes, condoms and protective measures are important but more important than that are yearly pap smears(twice a year if you’ve had HPV) and constant check ups are the only sure way to stay safe.
Chlamydia is one of the leading causes of HPV infections and cervical cancer. Currently, in the UK notablyEast Yorkshire and Humber, Chlamydia is on the rise. Because of it’s sneaky nature and non symptomatic effects, Chlamydia is allowed fester and causes tons of harm to the reproductive organs including the possibility of infertility. More than 70% of women who have been diagnosed with Chlamydia never experienced any symptoms in comparison to 30% of men diagnosed who have never experienced symptoms. It takes 3 to 6 weeks for Chlamydia to be symptomatic if the symptoms even appear at all.
Just to be clear, there doesn’t need to be penetration for you to contract Chlamydia. As long as there are sexual fluids present, it is possible to spread the infection. Activities that could unknowingly spread Chlamydia include but are not limited to anal sex, oral sex, vaginal penetration, sharing dildos and toys without proper sterilization, and reusing condoms.
If you have come into contact with someone who has Chlamydia or believe they have contracted it, do not wait. You can get Chlamydia testing for free at the clinic. Some people, understandably so are a little more hesitant and too embarrassed to go to a public place for STD testing and diagnosis so, The Independent Pharmacy allows you to test in the comfort of your own home and acquire the proper Chlamydia treatment online. You can swab a sample and send it back them, just like the free clinic takes a sample from you and get the results within a shorter time frame, only 3 working days. Following that, if it’s determined that you do in fact have Chlamydia, you can also purchase the necessary medication right from the website and have shipped to your front door.
The testing lab that the Independent Pharmacy uses is a well known and trusted lab in the UK and meets all governmental code and requirements.
I have been considering bankruptcy since I was 26. After multiple conversations with different people and going in to the bankruptcy building and getting a feel for the process I decided not to. I went to the Bankruptcy court downtown Brooklyn in Cadman Plaza after reaching out for free help multiple times in which those attorneys always seemed to be on "vacation". I left that office with a list of things I needed to do bills I needed to have and it included everyone I owed, their amount and their address. I thought it was weird that they charge poor people for being poor and proclaiming publicly that they're poor. If I had an extra $900, I would just pay off some of my debt. Our nation has a habit of thinking backwards. Out of all the things I was told, what left a lasting impression to me was that once I go through with this process whoever I forgot to include in the bankruptcy process, I would still owe. That scared me.
It was a good thing I decided against it. Previously I had owed over $40,000 in school loans and credit card debt. After doing my taxes in 2014, and receiving a very large bill from the IRS, I realized something happened. Since I had not paid my student loan debt with Chase in over 7 years, they wrote my debt off and magically I was no longer liable for it. We have been taught to believe that all of our student loan debt will always be looming over our heads but unbeknownst to us, there's always a loop hole. My chase loan was a combination of a private loan and one of my Sallie Mae debts that was apparently sold to Chase. I did have to pay $2,000 of taxes or re-do my taxes for that year which is a small price to pay for a free $20,000.
It is important to not only pay your bills but keep track of the bills you don't pay. Imagine if I had spent my last few dollars doing the bankruptcy process only to be exonerated of thousands of debt in the very near future. I've been raving about Credit Karma but it has been such a help for me to keep track of what I pay, what I owe and how long I have until I no longer have to pay these people any more. Credit is a game of time. Those who win understand the game and play it well.

Wage Garnishment in New York
*This is a sponsored post!
One of the biggest issues we had when creating a safe space for Sai was the material we would use for him. Inside was easy, as Target and Toys R Us have those washable mats that are pretty durable. Outside, on the other hand was no walk in the park. The elements are always against. In New York, and I'm sure in the UK, streets are repaved yearly after treacherous winters wreak havoc on our concrete. It's even evident at our parks that most materials don't hold up despite not having the same wear and tear as concrete. This is a problem that Soft Surfaces has a solution for. If you're creating a safe space for your kid in the UK, Soft Surfaces provides unmatched knowledge, a high level of quality and a guarantee of safety to keep kids safe. Soft Surfaces specializes in Wet Pour which is commonly utilized under play equipment but can also be used in backyards and areas without play equipment. The material is sponge like and soft meaning running, jumping, playing and even falling gives as little injury as possible. The best part about Wet Pour is that it can be 100% customizable with artwork and colors to create a playful, friendly environment for children of all ages. As per budget, the size of the Wet Pour and area determined the cost but in the United Kingdom Soft Surfaces LTD works with you to find something that fits your budget.
I was young and full of a 700 credit score. The world was my oyster. I could apply for loans, cards with high balances no one could stop me. I was unstoppable. That was until I was spending more than I was making. The credit card payments became too high. Before I knew it, I was dodging creditors, refusing to open the letters and then, years later I was hit with the wage garnishment.
The first time was shocking. I was wondering what the hell was going on. Initially, I thought my employer had got me for my hours. I called my manager raging mad trying to figure out why such a large chunk of my check was missing. I called the Marshalls office and made an agreement with them of something I could afford. One week, I was unable to make it to their office before they closed and the next paycheck, my wages were being garnished.
I learned a few tricks about garnishment including the switch up. Switching jobs doesn't STOP your garnishment but it does put it on hold until the company you're working for reports that you're working for them. Most small companies it takes a while almost a year until the next tax time. Larger companies report immediately and you'll be found. No matter where you go, they will take your check until you pay what you owe.
Last Monday was the last day of a garnishment of mine from Capital One. It's been 3 years. I owed them give or take $3,000. I work seasonally and wage garnishments are not allowed to touch things like unemployment so that's something to bare in mind. However, a peculiar event did happen at the end of my garnishment. It appeared that there was a second garnishment, I called our processing company ADP to see what gives. They informed me that Capital One had sent another order in addition to the one on file stating I owed them an additional amount of money for fees and interest. Fortunately, I knew to call the Marshall immediately and have the office fax over a letter that would cease the payments. Capital One had committed fraud by making up an order that never existed to recoup additional funds and hoped that they were dealing with a rookie but they're not.
Here is the direct law regarding wages
In New York State, a creditor can garnish the lesser of 10% of your gross wages or 25% of your disposable income to the extent that this amount exceeds 30% of minimum wage. If your disposable income is less than 30 times minimum wage, it cannot be garnished at all.
The last part is extremely important. If your disposable income not total income, disposable is less than 30 times minimum they can not garnish you but YOU have to be diligent.
Here are some tips to combat wage garnishment in NYC
1. Do not miss court dates. Missing court dates gives them an automatic judgement in their favor which you can have repealed but you don't want to go through that process. Avoid this by showing up the first time.
2. Be realistic and don't let them bully you. These companies will try to suck you dry for every penny you have. Some interest rates are exorbitant make sure you have your paper work from when you signed the contract, some companies (like Capital One) will not only give you a higher interest rate but tag on expenses you never owed in the first place.
3. Keep a calendar with the amounts you paid and what you have left. I was very diligent with knowing my payments and predicting when it would end. A lot of people don't pay attention and end up having to fight these companies for their funds which will take forever. Don't be that person who lets money leave their hand freely.
4. Learn for next time. Wage garnishment is no joke. If it happens to you once make sure it never happens again! Make realistic credit agreements, learn the 30/60/90 rule. Otherwise, it can go on your credit report as a tax lien and makes it difficult for companies to trust your creditworthiness in the future.
5. You don't need an expensive lawyer. Everything you need to know about the law is right there on the free world wide webs.

I was first introduced to ToSave earlier this year in January it was one of those websites that I felt was too scary to shop on because it had EVERYTHING kind of like an Ali Express. I received an email from their PR company to do a review on the website and things did not go smoothly. Some of the items I wanted were not available in my size o were sold out but eventually we picked items that they had in stock and items that would fit. As always when shopping on Chinese sites, I am so worried with sizing because I don't fall into the traditional S,M,L,XL I'm in between M,L, XL and 1X so shopping can be super difficult for me. I posted tips on how to shop overseas (sites like Zaful, SammyDress, SheIn and now TOSAVE) and you can see this blog post here and this exact outline is what I used to make my determinations with sizing on ToSave.
I ordered 4 items and they came in approximately 11 days. Shipping from China usually takes anywhere from 10-30 days so this was pretty exceptional. All my items fit except for the lingerie piece that I had, the bottom piece was too small but it was beautiful quality. The lingerie item was the only thing that I felt didn't match the picture 100% I thought it would have more structure to it like it did in the picture however, for $4.00 you really can not complain. The most expensive item in this haul was the dress and it was $8. I'm interested in ordering more stuff from this site they have many home items and probably more bralettes because you can never have enough of those.

1. Rock a bodysuit
After out mid sections expand and attempt to rubber band back to normal, we still try to hold on to our former selves. Our past lives of Forever21 camis and tight H&M tees are over. Bodysuits give coverage to your front and your back without the plumbers crack or chicho cleavage.
2. Not every jean needs to be skin tight
In the 2000s it was all about the skinny low rise. While we gasped at our moms rocking their mom jeans, we can do it too with a little more pizazz. Mom jeans are flattering to the tummy area without being too tight and still provides the assmazing view of the backside you want. Plus with the options of shoes to wear the jeans become much greater. My favorite pair of jeans came from Banana Republic.
3. Show your arms/ shoulders
You can be sexy without showing cleavage. I was so ecstatic to see off the shoulder tops make a come back. Those things were my favorite. You can grab some cute, inexpensive, off the shoulder shirts from my favorite site SheIn or from Rainbows if you are close to one. Some of them are similar to styles you may have seen at Zara for a fraction of the price.
4. Get fitted professionally for a bra
One of my biggest post partum challenges was the guess work of my bra size. I was doing the math adding and subtracting 32s, 34s, dividing cups until I figured something that I thought worked for me. A bad bra can ruin a great outfit. There's no need for your bra to be so tight that your skin seeps underneath in a cry for help. Back fat shouldn't be accentuated unless of course that's your thing. No one has the same size boobs all their life and like a pap smear you should be getting fitted yearly. AdoreMe.com is actually doing FREE fittings this month so check them out.
5. Go from body con to skater
As a smaller lady, my go to outfit was a crop top, body con skirt and Tory Burch flats. Now that I have a little more meat on me, I wear body con skirts occasionally but I really love A-line and skater skirts. They're so feminine and stylish. You can add elements like a leather jacket or studs to create a cute, contrasting look.
6. Do not get rid of your crop tops
Yes, I know the majority of us don't want to show our stomach and that's fine. But, do not get rid of your crop tops. Crop tops are not only great layering pieces but are excellent to pair with high waisted linen pants and a- line skirts.
I know you probably read the title in awe. Probably cursing me out as you read this calling me all sorts of names, maybe stanky leg, stinky butt or whatever else is clever. But the truth is it's not that bad. There is life outside of deodorant(for the most of us anyway).
Ever since I was a young girl, wearing deodorant was sort of a rite of passage in which you cross into adulthood. I still remember the name of my very first deodorant; Team Spirit. Through my journey of life, I've seen many family members go through ailments, people die for drinking and smoking and on the extreme end, people dying for absolutely no reason at all. I gave up meat last year and it was a very long time before I had a steak again. Now, I may eat meat every other month if the mood hits me. After reading articles about pus and the mistreatment of cows, I decided that maybe milk wasn't the best thing. We switched to almond milk. I gave up cheese altogether.
Giving up certain foods has caused me to be the butt of many jokes, and sometimes being called a fool. Rightfully so. While I was giving up these things I was putting into my body, not once did I pay attention to the things I was putting on my body. Such as laundry detergents, facial washes, perfumes and deodorant.
If you thought looking at an ingredient list for a bag of chips would make you crazy, just try looking at the ingredients on a can of hair spray. The majority of them you would probably have to Google and when you see their other uses, you'd probably be shocked as hell to know that you're spraying that in the air or any where close to your face. This was my shock when I looked at the ingredients of my beloved Secret deodorant.
Thinking back to when I was a young girl, I would find lumps underneath my arms after extended uses of deodorant. My grandma told me I just needed to change the deodorant but I never asked why or what it was. There is no solid evidence and it's only suggested that swollen lymph nodes can be attributed to life altering diseases such as breast cancer and lymphoma. Why was smelling good possibly worth the cost of my life?
Honestly, it's not but here's my journey of my one month without deodorant.
Weather is mild 50's to low 60's. Raining occasionally and dark.
All is well. Shower daily, smell decent, did not shave all is well with the world.
One day in upper 80's. Mostly 60-70 degrees. No rain in sight and sunny as hell.
Going strong, smelled a little musty one day towards the end of the day. Kept underarms to self. Enjoyed life. Gives up cheese.
Decent days, low 60's no rain. Sun with clouds.
The stench hit the motherfucking fan. Increased activity, and nervousness. Changed soap from almond and patchouli to citrus. Smelled like onions from the hot dog cart. Feeling wild self conscious. Tried to mask it with perfume. Failed immensely. Body changed smells through different emotions. First time I've ever noticed it. Smell subsides when emotions subsides, or maybe my nose grew accustom to it. LMFAO. That's terrible. Shirts smell terrible at the end of the day.
Gloomy and cold. Low 50s - mid 60's. Went on vacation for two days, hot, muggy and 87 degrees.
Switches back to patchouli and almond soaps. Decided not to bathe for 2 days. Smells perfectly fine. Drinks more water. Controls sweat through controlling nervousness smell subsides when emotions subsides. Shirts do not smell after being taken off.
What I can say is that I smell different at certain stages of the day and certain emotions trigger different responses which I have never noticed in my whole life. I have been some accustomed to smelling like Dove and Secret that I never took the time to smell me. It was also really cool to figure out that citrus oils did not blend well with my body's natural chemistry which was shocking because I was using that soap before I decided to give it up. Dr. Bronners soap has become my go to body wash and I can't wait to explore with fragrances.
Obviously, I am not the first person to do this!
