Kamilah is T W O ! !

20171014_095243

Kamilah Savannah-Maree is T W O years old guys!! Where did time go? Like no seriously where did it all go?!?! I can vividly remember the day I had her. And I think that’s the day that I was truly complete. She’s seriously the best part of me. She might not look like me but when she was born there was something there that reminded me of me. And my dad has validated that time after time, he’s told me that he sees me in her. I’m not sure what it is yet but little quirks about her remind me about me.

She is for sure the better me shes a lot more funny than me, prettier, smarter, and a lot more brave than me. She is a ball of sass, ask anybody. But with the sass she has a little sweet and loveable side to her and when you get to see that side it just melts your heart. She is a hugger she loves to hug and they come at such random times which makes them 20 times better. Her personality is starting to shine brighter than before. She loves books, she would rip them apart at first but now she’ll just sit around and look through the pages. She is definitely a little book worm in the making like her mamma. I can go on and on about Ms. Kamilah but let me just say this…

To my now two year old..

I love you more than you will ever know. And I wish you would stop growing and just stay little forever. But that’s just wishful thinking. As you continue to grow i hope that God gives me the tools and knowledge to help you grow into the person you need to be. I hope you continue to be who you are. Because you are pretty dang awesome! I hope you continue to pinch my nose and say “toot toot” everytime. I hope and pray that you know just how love you really are and just how much of blessing you are to your dad and I.

Happy Birthday

October 15 started out like any other Sunday. I made breakfast and we sat around and watched movies until we had to leave to our destination. Now I went back and forth between making her a party or just having something small with family. I chose to just have something small for her and go all out next year for her third birthday.

We went to Gattis, which is an arcade for both little and big kids. We had an amazing time. The boys went crazy and played just about every game. Kamilah played what she could and just ran all over the place. Which is when I realized that my choice of shoes was probably not the best decision made. Needless to say it didn’t really matter becauae Kami enjoyed herself.

We played for about two hours before we sat down, ate a little more and then brought out the cakes and opened up gifts. We got two cakes because Noahs birthday was in August and we were unable to throw him a party and I knew he kinda felt left out. Oh and by the way they totally butchered Kamis name, we just scratched out and went on. So we sang happy birthday to both of them at the same time. The funniest thing happened when Kamilah blew her candles I guess she wasn’t to sure on how to feel once the candle went out because she had a confuse look on her face soon after. Kason took the initiative to smash into Noahs cake like it was his birthday lol but we didn’t mind they were just having fun and Noah thought it was the funny.

After the boys got cleaned and all tidy up it was time to open up gifts! Wwoohhoo!

20171015_151644

Noah got a watch that I forgot to take a picture of it but he was so happy. He loves watches even tough he rarely wears them.

Kamilah got a necklace that I again forgot to take a picture of but it is the cutest thing ever! She also got her beloved Trolls, a Troll little house and a my little pony toy.

She was over the moon with her toys. I don’t know if she’ll remember this day or not but I know she had a great time. She was surrounded by people who truly love and care for her and that something that I will cherish for her.

And again sweet girl happy birthday and I love you sssoo much!!!!

Mammas Fall Picnic & Little Announcement

This past weekend was one to remember.

Saturday we didn’t do much we hung out at the house because babe decided to surprise us early in the morning. And we just wanted to spend some time with him even tough he slept most of the day because his trip back home was a long one. Him being there was enough the kids were happy so was i.

Then Sunday rolled. You see about a week or two ago a friend of mine put together a picnic. The guest would be moms and their kids from around the areat. The plan was to bring food, snacks and drinks. To hang out and let the kids play and most importantly get to know each other. To say i was nervous is understatement i was nervous wreck.

20171009_193028
Missing a few mom’s, some had to leave early and this picture was taken towards the very end

I was nervous for no reason at all. The moms were so nice and welcoming. After we introduced ourselfves we just kinda starting talking to each other. It was not awkward  what so ever.

We continued to talk and talk, we ate some very delicious pizza and desserts. The kids were having blast! They were running wild, playing tag and being kids. Kason came to me at one point and said “I’m having so much fun mommy!” Brit did an amazing job picking out the location the playground was steps away from us easing our natural mother instinct to freak out when we lost our kid in the crowd of other little kids.

One of the moms is a photographer and she also has a blog which I will share down below. She was nice enough to take pictures of the kids and their mini little pumpkin patch.

She did such amazing job.

20171009_213522

One of the things I loved about the get together was not only did i get to meet new moms I got to witness women coming together. Even though most of us knew eachother through instagram it seemed like we all clicked.  I had a great time meeting these ladies and their kids. We are planning to get together again next month. And hopefully friendships grow from our little get togethers.

Before I wrap this up I want to share a hilarious picture of Kamilah…please don’t mind her lol she is something else

20171009_213608

And I also wanted to say

Thank You! Sheislittlebutfierce.com has reached 100 followers!!! I know the numbers don’t mean anything just as long as I’m doing what I love but this is big to me. So thank you so much for making my day!

Kids Fall Staple Shoes

Fall is finally here and you know what that means…

N E W W A R D R O B E!!

Okay maybe not like a whole new one but you know add a few new items here and there, a girl can only dream. I think this is the part that I look forward to the most when the seasons change adding new pieces to my collection and watching my style change..which hasn’t changed at all. But you know whats best than adding to your wardrobe??

Adding to your kis(s) and dressing them in all the cute new clothes!! But this trip we took the our local stores I was on the hunt for shoes. For specific Fall staple pieces. I wanted to get the boys a boot or some oxford kind of shoes and for Kami I was specifically looking for ankle boots.

And I completed our mission and scored a few deals using RetailMeNot. Some of the stores were having deals so I was in heaven. I got them shirts and other little essentials but I wanted to show case what I broke my back for lol.

Like seriously I had a tiny heart attack every single time I saw what I was looking for its like the shoe gods were on my side or something.

Okay so I wont be stingy or whatever, I will be sharing where I got each pair of shoes. Because I want y’alls kids to look fab too! I say this because I feel like some people don’t like sharing where they get certain items from for whatever reason….

shoes 1

This pair is for Kason. I was originally going to get them from the stores website but I am so glad I didn’t it! I got a little discount and I did not have to wait for them to be delivered. I feel like this pair will go with so many things I can dress him up or dress him down. They’re very versatile if you ask me.

Store: Kids GAP

shoes 2

So this pair is obviously for Ms. Kami! When I saw them I just had to get them there was no leaving them behind. Sadly I did not get a discount because the store didn’t have any sales or coupons out there. But beauty is pain (even in the pockets) I love the color and just the overall look. She owns a pair of pink combat boots from the same store and I can tell you guys that they still look brand new.

Store: The Childrens Place

shoes 3

This pair is for Noah, now I feel like these compare to Kasons are a bit different. I know they may look very similar but they give out very different vibes….makes sense? Maybe not but I don’t know they’re slightly different. Same as Kason’s they will go with a lot of outfits.

Store: Tommy Hilfiger

shoes 4

 Last but certainly not least, these babies where exactly what I was looking for! I have been online searching for boots just like this since last month and I’ve had no luck, until now. I almost bumped into a couple trying to get to them so yes the struggle was real. I have no idea why I was even rushing to get to them because the rack was full of them but in my mind I thought otherwise. Anyways I cannot wait for her to wear them. The store where I got them from had so many cute clothes and shoes. I was impress.

Store: Crazy 8

I am not done I wan to get the boys another pair, so I will be back on hunt soon. I am also planning on getting basic shirts and cute jackets so we can layer them.

I’m so excited and cant wait for the kids to wear them, be on the lookout for pictures. Hope you all enjoyed this little post

Flourish VoxBox

Voxbox!!

Ive been waiting so patiently for an opportunity to get a voxbox from Influenster, and the time is finally here!! Just and FYI all these products were free for testing purposes.

20170908_181014

Look at all these goodies!!!

20170908_180921

So lets start off with the candy because that’s the best part right. Let me just say that Welchs has done it again! They were delicious, yes were because we demolished them the minute after I posted the picture on Instagram.

20170908_180935

Next we have Balance Nutrition Bar, it is cookie dough flavored so yyuumm. I haven’t tried it yet but I will tomorrow so I’ll be sure to post about it on either Instagram or twitter. But I mean who doesn’t love cookie flavored snacks.

20170908_180928

I’m excited to try this hair mask from Eva NYC, because I’ve never used one to begin with and because my hair definitely needs it.

20170908_180942

Origins Anti-agin Power Serum, I’ve honestly never used any serum. But I’ve heard wonderful things. So I’m excited as well I have yet to find any rinkles but hey a girl can never start too early. It’s a two week trial sample so it should last me a while.

20170908_180914

I’m personally a tea kind of gal. So when this baby was the first thing on top I almost died. I’ve heard wonderful things about FitTea but always hesitated to buy because “what if doesn’t work” thoughts always came to kind. Anyways so now that I have this free sample which by the way is not a sample at all it this bag retails for $25 dollars. It has individual tea bags and it’s a 14 day detox. I’ve already completed two days so far. The tea is very good people say they taste ginger i however taste the lemon which is an ingredient. I drink the tea early in the morning but I’m going to start taking it before I work out. I add honey instead of sugar by the way.

20170908_180958

I also got a few coupons just in case I want to purchase some more of the products mentioned above.

I am so happy to have gotten these products and I will keep you guys updated on how I liked the products I haven’t tried yet. So follow me on Instagram or Twitter.

A Weekend With Us: School supply Shopping and Lazy Sundays

I’ve survived it! Yes the most dreaded time of the year well at least for me anyways…school supply shopping (insert suspenseful music here) Okay I’m not totally lying I love it. This is the first time that I shop for two kids. And to my surprise it was kinda easy! Kasons list consisted mostly of arts and crafts stuff while Noah’s got to the needy greedy rulers, erasers and all those fun supplies.

20170805_124917.jpg

I didnt get a few things on both lists so I’ll have to go back and look around for the few supplies we are missing. One of them being Manila paper, each school year it N E V E R F R E A K I N G fails. My next mission is uniform and shoe shopping, now this is the one thing I really dislike. My kids are very weird when it comes to clothes, the sizes vary. This is especially true with Kasom he is a very petite boy his waist is our problem. I looked around while I was getting their supplies but no luck so hopefully we have better luck this time around.

So after our Saturday fiasco our Sunday was pretty mellow. We stayed in our pjs and took naps throughout the day. After waking up from my nap I noticed that the kids had been inside all day and then I remembered I bought them some chalk so I decided to let them go out on the balcony and draw. Let me just tell y’all that it was S U P E R hot outside today. Texas heat is no joke! They had fun even if we only lasted 30 mins.

20170806_161935

We then ordered Cheddars and chilled, until bed time.

That was our weekend, nothing too exciting. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and hope that your week is just as amazing.

Repping World 101: How To Get Started

I am not too sure if I have shared this or not but Kamilah is a rep for small shops. You’re probably asking your self “what’s a brand rep”, “what does a brand rep do?” and “how can my child become one?”

To answer the first and second question in one a brand rep is somebody who represents a brand and promotes it on social media by taking awesome pictures show casing their work. Sometimes you will be sharing discounts the shop is having as well. In return you will get very good discount and sometimes you will get free items. It all depends on the shop.

IMG_20170715_185931_300

It’s like your child becomes a model over night and you are now a mommager, I’ve always wanted to say that!

IMG_20170608_072258_476

You will be surprise on how easy it is to become a brand rep. Usually the small shop will hold a bran rep search/enthusiast search. To enter you will usually have to repost the contest picture and then under that picture they will ask you to say why you would like your child to be a rep for the shop. They will also ask for you to say a few things about you child, like their age and personality. Then the shop will go through all the entries and pick their rep team. The size of the teams depends on the shop owner and sometimes she will have different categories. Some shops will start you off as brand fans and you can move up from there.

IMG_20170622_114211_501

 Dont get discourage if your baby doesn’t get chosen, it’s nothing against them, keep trying. Kamilah didn’t get picked for the first couple of times I entered her into rep searches. And at first I was like “okay I’m done” but I had to remind myself that we had just started this journey. Kamilah  was finally chosen to be a brand fan for a small shop called leolaskybows. We are still repping for her and we recently became brand enthusiast this past rep search.

We’ve been repping for almost 6 months now and I love it. I try to stick with bows and clothes but there so many stuff you can rep. I’ve met a lot of awesome mom’s and met some of the sweetest shop owners. I love that me and Kamilah can be a part of helping their shops grow. That’s what all this is about helping a shop grow and empowering other women! And I am all for that.

How I feel about Kason starting Pre-K..

 Kason is officially starting school this coming August! I will be a mommy to two kids in school how freaking cool is that?!?

Screenshot_20170606-080804

With this new milestone approaching us i am having very mixed emotions. I’m excited but kind of scared not because I think he will be overwhelmed or that he will cry as I walk away..oh no he will love school and probably be that little kid who waves by to his parents. Like “see ya!”

I’m nervous because I know my child lol I know he likes to play and be himself. Kason is an awesome child don’t get me wrong. It’s just that he has a very energetic personality and he likes to make people laugh. He can be shy but once he is comfortable oh its on! As I’m typing this he is jumping and dancing to Moana while his sister just sits on the couch. Some people can handle his personality while others just sit and watch and probably think to themselves “looorrddd!” But that’s just who he is, he is a very happy, energetic, and all around kid.

He’s very smart for his age and likes to learn new things which comforts me in away. He knows his colors, shapes, and numbers. His dad bought him some mickey mouse cards with colors and shapes and he would sit with him for 30 mins a day going over and over the shapes and colors. Kason loved it, he would bring the cards and ask his daddy to ask him what color/shape was that. He also understands Spanish.

I’m sure he will be fine because again I know him it’s just the pre-k jitters setting in. We still have a few months to go and I have to tackle some of his little habits. Which include him having a bed time. He is a total night owl which is not good at all although he will be going to school in the afternoon I want him to get enough rest and hopefully his brother has an influence in some way. So far that hasn’t worked because Noah is out within minutes after laying down and Kason is still up wanting snacks.

20170606_080904

We have some work to do I know that much. I will also be buying him and his brother some books so they can work on them during the summer! *saracasm* Wwoohhoo they’re going to love me!
