What If This Is My Body?!

When I look in the mirror I see Nik! Cute, lovable, THICK, short, curly hair, golden skin Nik. I also see some changes I’d like to make. Like any other mom/woman I see the changes in my body after kids, as I age, and as I embrace who I continuously evolve to be. For example this fupa (fat upper pubic area) I could divorce it, I’d like one chin, toned arms, and thighs that don’t give a round of applause when I walk and a butt that is WOW from the back and the side. Judge if you must that’s … Continue reading What If This Is My Body?!

Know Nik: Issa Vibe!

Picture this…Late night the moon and stars are your only light. It’s quiet, not scary movie quiet, but quiet. There’s a gentle breeze blowing, Anthony Hamilton is playing gently on Alexa, in the background, your favorite red wine is in your favorite glass, you have your own personal charcuterie platter, and you are deep into the book you are reading this month…This is life!

I like to get up and get started. As I noticed my sleep pattern change I … Continue reading The Early Bird Gets The Worm!

All You Need to Know About Self-care

I consider myself an intelligent person. I know how to care for my family, to meet their needs, and to make sure they are taking care of themselves. It’s common sense right?! I have structured lists that keep them on schedule, keep them healthy and make them all around better human beings. I’ve taught my kids the importance of making sure they are healthy mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and financially. The area I was lacking in teaching them was that their mom needed to take care of herself too. Moms we truly have to practice what we preach. I can’t … Continue reading All You Need to Know About Self-care

Being Nanekia: God Is…

Today’s post was supposed to continue my journey into feminine health, but when He speaks you listen so here we go. If you follow me on social media then you know my sister and I revealed our Dad was diagnosed with colon cancer. Our family received this diagnosis as cities began to quarantine and our new normal began to take structure. This isn’t our family’s first fight with cancer, my mom is a two time cancer survivor. Our family’s response has always been to fight.  This trip around is different, our access to each other as a family has been … Continue reading Being Nanekia: God Is…
