    My Everyday Beauty Routine

    I’m no beauty expert but I’m pretty damn good at putting my face together in 10 minutes flat while wrangling a toddler. If you have 0 time to yourself to get ready, this is for you. My belief is that makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty, so taking care of your skin first is key. I make sure…

    Anxiety Ease

    It’s normal to feel anxious and nervous from time to time. A big job promotion, a short deadline on a huge project, a first date; all these things are bound to ruffle your feathers every once in awhile. Anxiety on the other hand, at least for me, is physical pain due to my constant worry. Sometimes it hurts to stand…

    Co Parenting

    There’s this really weird look I get when I tell people I’m still friends with my ex, or as I like to call him, My Baby Daddy (side note: he calls me Baby Momma). It’s a bit like a deer in headlights or that I’m about to say “JUST KIDDING” and walk away. But it’s actually the truth. We are…

    CupKate is #OnLockFor2017

    I don’t know about you but I was counting down the days to 2017 to start. I really had no goals for 2017 but I definitely had dreams. Goals vs. Dreams: Goals can be written down with steps to achieve them. They can physically be obtained while goals are things I wish to happen but have no idea how I…

    A hyper sensitized world aka 2016

    Let’s start from the beginning. Yesterday I went to a football game with some friends. Most of them were guys but a few women were there too. To be honest, I usually prefer hanging out with guys because there’s less drama, less competition, and fewer bathroom breaks. However, a few things happened yesterday to make me reconsider hanging out with…

    A Strong Single Mom

    Dear Quick-to-Judge I see you — staring at me with a baby on my hip, It’s obvious I’m “a little frantic.” I see how fast you judge me and how quickly your eyes go to my wedding finger. There’s no ring on there. Trust me I’ve checked. But don’t feel sorry for me, don’t think my life is a wreck, that…

    DIY on a budget

    Over the years, I’ve learned how important it is to love where you live. It’s the place you come to relax, unwind, and bring friends over to celebrate. It’s your happy place and it should reflect who you are. Now I wish I had millions of dollars to decorate my apartment but I’m on that single mom/entrepreneur budget. LOL! Let…

    Don’t Accept It

    I think all moms out there can agree that bouncing back after baby isn’t easy. Some moms make it look really easy and they are the 0.05%. They give bouncing back a bad name. I would be lying if I said I bounced back quickly even though I did bounce back relatively quick in comparison .   I was talking…

    Bright Ideas

    If you’re anything like me, chances are you psych yourself out of a million ideas because they aren’t perfectly put together. I’ll admit, perfection is something I used to strive for before I stepped out of my comfort zone. I’d wait for the perfect opportunity or wait until I had all my ducks in a row. I’m here to tell you…
