Stone Mountain’s New Yurts Are Now Open for Camping

Do you know what a YURT is? The name alone immediately made me go to google to start my research!

  1. YURT– a circular tent of felt or skins on a collapsible framework, used by nomads in Mongolia, Siberia, and Turkey.

Yurt My family and I were recently invited to the Stone Mountain Park, Georgia’s most visited family park, to preview their modern twist on a Greek classic; a contemporary camping Yurt.

1902787_10205935297095093_6572869691378046793_n

11391553_10205935298055117_4059693478930942612_nThey’ve created 3 brand new Yurt structures that sit comfortably on the lake. The new homes away from home are made of wood and canvas, featuring outside decks, picnic tables, charcoal grills, a fire pit and large water spigots for camping convenience.

yurt

Inside each smoke-free yurt, comfort awaits in the form of log furniture, heat and A/C, electric outlets, large windows, skylights, ceiling fans, lockable doors and sleep space for up to five guests. All a camper needs to bring is a sleeping bag or linens, personal items and family/friends for sharing the experience.

The Yurts opened up for reservations on May 15 and quickly sold out. To spend the night is only $99 and $149 for holidays.

One Big Thing!

My children loved viewing these yurts and were begging me to spend the night here. I just had one question, “Where is the bathroom!?” Because the Yurts are located on a campground, they have a community restroom facility that has showers and restrooms within walking distance.

Directions to Stone Mountain Park’s Campground:

Upon driving through the main gate, make an immediate left onto Stonewall Jackson Drive. Along the way you’ll pass The Commons restaurant on your right. Stone Mountain Park Campground will be on your right.

Go straight. The Yurts are located on Trail B. You can also view their location on the Campground map:

eShakti’s New Site, Selections and $35 Off Code for You

A few months ago, I was sent a lovely Black and White custom made dress by eShakti and I really loved it. Sometimes things look better online and you don’t know what you are really going to get in the mail, this wasn’t the case.

eShakti 3

I loved my black and white dress and every where I went, I was complimented on the style, fit and design. I’m the type of person that will immediately tell you where I got something from, because I love to share great things! There is enough for all of us to look and feel great!

Well, its time to share some more good news about eShakti – their website has received a facelift and they’ve added more custom pieces. What makes eShakti different is you see the dress, shirt, jumpsuit, skirt, etc., that you like and then customize it to your specific style and taste. You are literally able to select your:

eShakti

The new site is very clean, simple but modern. They’ve added Contemporary and Bohemian themes, and introduced new products in their categories like Jumpsuits, Pants and Shorts.

eShakti

One thing that I personally do not have in my wardrobe are shorts. I don’t wear them in public. The reason is because growing up, I was called “Knock Kneed!” Which means, my knees went in and shorts just looked crazy on me!

As an adult, I know how to walk and not look wired, but shorts still ride up and I love the feel of a dress and fitted skirt.

With eShakti’s custom shorts, I would honestly give these a try because I can make them fit and look how I want them too.

eShakti

What makes eShakti stand out is that they showcase real women wearing their clothes right on their site! These ladies are all different shapes and sizes and are rocking their custom made outfits with confidence.

2 Reasons Rain Boots Work in Every Season

Emma Feature

I received a complimentary pair of boots from Emma’s Mode but my thoughts are 100% my own. 

I honestly do not remember having rain boots as a child. My childhood memories of rain boots are of other little girls and boy with cute boots, a raincoat and a hat. That wasn’t me. I wore regular shoes and hoped my umbrella worked, as I ran from outside to inside, praying I did not get wet.

Besides praying that my hair didn’t get wet, it was hard to avoid the shoes. I hated wearing gym shoes in the rain, because they were sure to get soaked – which included socks and feet!

Fast forward to 2015, and I am now married and a mother of three but yet I still want fashionable rain boots. I see moms wearing them all the time and I say the same thing every time I see them, “Oooooh, I want some rain boots!” My husband just shakes his head.

Every Season There is a Reason

(Reason #1) No matter if it’s Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, it’s a proven fact that it’s going to rain. We all usually watch the weather forecast, so we can usually prepare for the rain in advance.

Due to the fact that rain doesn’t have a season, it’s always possible to have a pair of rain boots to compliment the different seasons. I received my first pair of rain boots from Emma’s Mode and screamed when I opened the package. Why?

  1. I always wanted rain boots and here they were!
  2. They were so freaking stylish, they didn’t even look like rain boots!

After I posted these on Facebook, so many friends wanted a pair too! We all secretly wanted a pair of stylish rain boots! Well, lucky for them and you that these particular boots are on sale for $8.80!

Let me say that again, $8.80!

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 9.56.57 PMWith women wearing rain boots even when it’s not raining, I think that price is perfect when you are trying to make a fashion statement. The pair that I have are black, which could go with just about everything. The gold accent adds style along with the quilted look near the top of the boot.

Honestly, they don’t look like rain boots and I would easily wear them during the winter! If I lived in Chicago (or anywhere that snowed) these would also be perfect!

Emma

(Reason #2) Who wants wet feet right?

Emma 2

Whether you wear your rain boots as a fashion statement or to keep your feet dry, either way you won’t be alone. I will be wearing mine right along with you. I promise the day I opened my package, I prayed it rained the next day!

Do you own rain boots?

  • Shoes
  • Apparel
  • Activewear
  • Accessories

5 Tips to Keep Your Underarms Smooth & From Turning Darker

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dove. I received a product sample and promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Dove Feature

One thing that women don’t talk about openly is their underarms but we all secretly care! We care about how they look when we raise our arms, the texture of skin and of course the smell (we’d prefer not to have one).

For the past two weeks, I have been using Dove  Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with my underarm routine. I can honestly say, the deodorant is a keeper. One reason is that I don’t like to wear deodorant if I don’t have to. So, to have the choice of 48 hour scent and moisture protection is a plus.

Of course you wash your underarms daily! You just don’t need to reapply as much or more, your choice.

11010969_10205590797722824_1343533233804685089_n

5 Tips to Keep Your Underarms Smooth & From Turning Darker 

When I was younger, and puberty was setting in. My mother shared with me how to keep my underarms from becoming dark as I age. I have always kept that one tip and as I have grown, I’ve added a few more.

1. Never EVER shave your underarms with just water and a razor. For some reason, this will cause that area to get dark quicker over time. Over the years, I have always used soap. My soap of choice now, is black soap (because that’s what I use in the shower), but you can use what you like.

2. I only shave my underarms when someone is going to see them. Which means, I don’t shave my underarms in the winter or fall. Before you turn up your nose, I don’t get a lot of hair there anyway, so it’s not like a bush under there! I shave in the spring and summer because I like wearing tank tops, sleeveless dresses etc. I don’t believe in shaving them, just to shave them. This has also kept my underarms the same color over the years.

11053484_10205590365432017_5447714011884654936_o

3. BONUS: Use a body scrub on your underarms occasionally to remove dead skin. I recently started doing this and it leaves my underarms so smooth!

4. At night, apply a moisturizer under your arms. I use a soft butter I create for my family, but you can use the same moisturizer you use for your body.

11174396_10205590365872028_6273569524852579588_o

5. During the day, Use Dove  Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant. It moistures, keeps you dry and promotes smoother underarms. The NutriumMoisture has an ingredient that is made to moisturize our skin.

Before I was sent this product, I was already using Dove Deodorant. I am already sold on their brand because they always seem to put our best interest at heart. Their products always seem to do what they promise and that makes me happy. You can purchase Dove  Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant at any local grocery store across the country for around $4.99 retail price.

Spring Break in a 2015 Lexus 200 NX (Car Review)

DSCN2583

My personal dream car has always been a Lexus. I have loved the style, class, & body styles since they appeared on the scene. So when I was given the opportunity to review a 2015 Lexus 200 NX, it was literally a dream come true, for a week. When it was delivered, the beautiful rich dark red tone and unique body shape had all my neighbors staring and thinking we had a new car!

Family_Lexus

This year my family spent Spring Break in Florida visiting relatives, so driving the Five-passenger luxury crossover Lexus NX allowed us to save money & time with all of the three driving options;

  • Eco – allows you to save more gas. Best used for road trips or long distance travel.
  • Normal – this is for everyday driving around.
  • Sport – this gives you that boost of speed that our “youthful self” desires!

Easter

We were able to enjoy Easter this year with my in-laws and our children couldn’t have been happier. We surprised them the next day with a trip to Busch Gardens.

DSCN2633

My favorite features were:

  1. Touchpad – similar to the mouse you use with a computer. You were able to get to all the major features of the vehicle with a slip of your finger.
  2. Touch lights – if you wanted to see something, just tap the lights and it will cut on or dim. No buttons to press.
  3. Speak Features – if you didn’t want to use the mouse, you can hit a button and actually tell the car what you wanted to see or do.
  4. Built in phone charger – Maybe this should be #1. There is a slot that you literally drop your phone in, and it charges it! No cords or outlet needed.
  5. Eco or Sport Option – What do I feel like today? Saving gas or getting there faster than the speed of light (ok, that’s an exaggeration).

DSCN2587

My husband did most of the highway driving. He said he was giving me a break because he thought I was tired. I think the truth was, he was enjoy the way this car handled itself on the road. I asked him what he liked about the vehicle (why are men so simple sometimes):

  1. Good get up and go – I had to remind him a few times to lift his foot!
  2. Nice wheels (only a man would say that)
  3. Dual climate control – we normally fight about that!
  4. Smooth ride – it did seem to just glide. I loved that.

DSCN2648

The Lexus NX 200t Sport starts out at $36,580 and ownership comes with many benefits!

MOTOR TREND, 2014
“Lexus has an upcoming hit on its hands.”

PicMonkey Collage

Many times 1 week is not enough time to really get a good feel for the car and all the amazing features, so I was lucky enough to find a friend that actually owns this car! After getting over feeling a tiny bit jealous that she gets to experience this luxury every day, I asked her to tell me first hand why she loves her car:

Tosha Hudson: 1-2-15 First person in the Northeast to drive off the lot with the Fsport. Lexus of Englewood

Why I love my fSport

  • Rear Camera/Parking Assist – Three colors show you how aligned you are to the curb or parking spot.
  • Park and hold button– great for when stuck in traffic…instead of putting the gear in park.
  • Side View Mirror assistance– At first it was annoying but this has been helpful when driving during dusk hours and often difficult to see cars coming along side of you with no headlights on.
  • Heated Steering Wheel – Great for the cold weather in the Northeast. It only stays of for a few minutes then you must reset.
  • Sirius Radio-Plenty of stations to choose from.
  • Bluetooth– allows you to Sync the car with your ipad and iphone
  • You can still use the navigation while car is in motion-I had a 2006 Lexus IS 250 and this was not a feature during that time.

The fSport allows for additional speed with phenomenal pick up and the use of paddles to change the gears.

I’m single and usually drive alone in my car, so the NX has the ability to cancel the air flow to the rear of the vehicle. Thus, not wasting air being vented to the back.

DSCN2656

After riding around in this Lexus for 7 days, it was hard to give it back. It just made me feel like the cool mom on the block!

Dove

In the next few days, I will be trying out the Dove Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant! I honestly love Dove products and have been using them since I was in my teens. I trust the brand and I’ve never been disappointed. As for deodorant, I currently use Dove as my deodorant of choice, so I’m excited to try their Advance Care product line and check out the major difference.

One major difference that it provides is 48 hour odor and wetness protection. That works out great if you don’t like to wear it everyday. Dove deodorant also contains NutriumMoisture, which is made up of ingredients that moisturize the skin. What does that mean? Smoother underarms! That’s sexy… to me!

I Challenged Myself: 3 Easter Outfits Under $100 at OshKosh #ImagineSpring

Imagine Spring_#imaginespring

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

It’s very rare that you find a store that can dress all of your children when they are different sexes and their ages vary in years. Usually, I find myself going to three different stores depending on what I am looking for.

Osh_KoshFor this upcoming Easter, I was overjoyed to shop at OshKosh B’gosh because their new Imagine Spring line with sizes that go from 0-12 and the styles simply rock.

Over the past few years, our church as made our Easter celebration a less fluffy and a more casual cute affair.  It’s more of a come as you are Easter Sunday. I challenged myself to get my three children one outfit for Easter from OshKosh for $100 or less! So you could already see the huge smile on my face when I walked in the store and saw the 50% sale!

Cha-ching! Savings and style….. Let’s shop!

Osh KoshThe first thing my husband noticed when I brought these clothes home was the quality! He loved my daughter’s Navy blue and white dress, and that it was 50% off too ($24). I had a few outfits in my buggy for her that ranged from sporty, casual to dressy before I forgot I had two other children to shop for!

Osh KoshMy youngest son recently turned two and he’s also ready for Spring! He likes to run and at this age, they don’t really know what sitting still means, so he needed an outfit that allowed him to be free. I love his navy blue shorts with the collared yellow shirt that buttons underneath. I also bought his cute sandals at OshKosh, that could go with a variety of Spring time outfits. Again, this outfit was also 50% off!

Osh KoshMy oldest son looks like he going to a picnic! I love the pink shirt (50% off, $15) with the blue and white squared shorts. He told me, “Mom, this doesn’t match!” I knew then, I have a lot of styling tips to teach him as he matures.

Osh Kosh KidsSpring is here, and although I shopped at OshKosh for Easter – I know that I will be back because:

  • The quality of clothes make me wish they carried my size!
  • The variety of styles for my children range from casual to dressy.
  • Child appropriate styles, which means kids looks like kids. Just stylish!

Sophia Video Baby Monitor Giveaway: How Long Did Your Child Sleep in Your Room?

It seems like the more children you have, the more relaxed you get with each one. Being a mom of three, it is the same way for me – to an extent.

With my first child, he slept in my room until he was 6 months old, but I personally didn’t have a good night sleep for a year. I found myself watching the monitor for any slight movements and even going to check on him myself multiple times throughout the night.

With my second child, she stayed in my room about 6 months as well. I think I felt better because she moved into the room with her big brother until he was big enough to move to his own room.

Emory!!

Now this third child… this is a little different. My son stayed in the room with me until he was 20 months! I just got used to my son’s bed in the room with me and I actually enjoyed seeing my little man in the morning. Not to mention, my oldest child is a boy and we were debating who our baby would room with.

Well, we moved and my husband put my son in the room with our oldest the first night in our new home. I was like, “Umm, are you trying to tell me something!” It was so weird not to hear him move during the night or to look over and see my little man smile at me in the morning. Although he’s a toddler now, he will always be my baby!

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 9.14.34 PM

6 Reasons Why I Stopped Eating Chipotle for 60 Days

You read the title correctly. I stopped eating Chipotle December 30, 2014. My goal was not to eat there again until March. I wanted to go 60 days or 2 full months without eating at this restaurant!

Chipotle

People who are close to me know that Chipotle was a favorite of mine and I could eat there everyday if the opportunity presented itself. So, these people were also the first to laugh at me when I told them I was giving it up for sixty days. After the laughing stopped, the next response was the same, why?

I Stopped Eating Chipotle for 6 Reasons:

  1. I was spending too much money there. I could easily eat there 3 days at week, which amounts to $21 a week ($84 a month!)
  2. I was sneaking around. I would eat there before dinner and then still eat dinner so my husband wouldn’t be suspicious that I just ate CHIPOTLE!
  3. I was covering up any evidence that I ate there. I would stop by dumpsters on the way home to dump all evidence of Chipotle before I got home! I would even rinse my mouth out!
  4. I was using different methods of payment. I have a separate account and would gladly use it so my husband wouldn’t know I ate there for lunch!
  5. I felt that I should have Chipotle stock, if I was going to keep giving them my money. But that came to a halt when I saw one share was over $700!!
  6. It’s not as “organic” as I thought! My husband told me that Chipotle admitted that although they try to have organic veggies and cage free, grass fed meat – it’s not always possible. WHAT! That broke my heart, but I can totally see their point. With hundreds of stores, how can all their meat and veggies be strictly “pure” unless they have their own cattle and chicken farms. And although my husband information was second hand, I do agree with the statement and my loyalty dimmed.

Chipotle

**Read: My Husband Banned Me From Chipotle: 7 Reasons Why I Still Sneak Back.

Did I Really Make It 60 Days?

I did! I really made it 60 days and I almost slipped twice. At the 30 day mark, I thought I did a good thing and maybe I should quit and get me a bowl! I pressed through that emotion and in mid February, I almost slipped again. I said, “I made it 45 days. That’s great! I could really just stop!” I pressed on and made it 60 days.

Emotions After Reuniting With Chipotle

Well, on March 1st – I can’t lie, I tried to go to Chipotle. The line was too long and I wasn’t moved to get out and wait. (1st sign of a shift for me) So, on March 2nd for lunch, I had Chipotle. I knew there was another shift when I didn’t ask for extra anything! I have my special methods of getting extra:

  • smile more
  • make small talk with the person making your food
  • Just ask!

Not this time! I didn’t even attempt. I took what they gave me and paid (2nd sign of a shift for me). When I took that first bite, I made a noise! “Ummmmm, this is so good” as chicken, sour cream and cheese filled my mouth! I still felt this way at bite 3, but quickly thought, “This is a lot of food! Am I going to eat all of this?” (3rd sign of a shift for me). Normally, I could eat my burrito bowl and yours too! But after going 60 days without one, I saw this bowl with clearer eyes and realized just how much food it was.

Chipotle

As I was reaching the end of my bowl, my taste had shifted and it just wasn’t that good anymore. Hpmh! Is the thrill gone? I immediately said out loud, “This is like an ex-boyfriend! When you see him, you realize how much you miss him because he looks good, smells good and could even feel good but not too long into your visit, you realize why he’s an ex.”

Disclaimer: this statement is not about my ex, it’s just an example!

The Future for Chipotle and I

It’s looking slim. 60 days away from this place that had my attention, really did my mind a favor. I’ve eaten there 3 times since March 1st and each time, the same result … the thrill is gone. It taste the same as it did, but something in my mind won’t let myself remember what it was that had my tastebuds going crazy.

I can now see myself easily eating there 1x a month vs. 2-3 times a week.

Now, honestly I need to ask myself what else do I need to walk away from for 60 days? Hmmmmm

Does anything or anyone have your attention so much that you might need to take a 60 day break from it? Could you even do that?

  • It’s not free – Yes to sign up with certain blog sites are free, but that’s the extent of it, if you want to be great at this. In order to invest in your blog, which is basically investing in yourself – it’s going to cost you.
  • You meet friends that can become family – I have so many new great friends because of blogging. It’s a family within itself. I have been able to meet moms, wives, fashionistas, business women from all over the world that I would have never crossed paths with otherwise.
