Welcome to my blog! It means so much to me that you are here, following me as I leave my footprints around the world.

Not Your Typical Motha is where I write about anything and everything that is near and dear to my heart; Topics ranging from style, beauty, parenting, family, places and food. It can also be a place for me to pour my heart’s contents when I am having a challenging feat at life (no one told you life would be easier when you get older). It will be a place where I come for solace because I am as bullish as it gets (Taurean all around).

I am going to get real over here. This is by no means a place for me to give advice because I am far from perfect, and I am the last person you’d want to get advice from. But, I hope that I can shed some light to you and thus gain from this experience myself. I hope that you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoy writing them for you.

Why am I Not Your Typical Motha?

I find that no matter how old I am, I tend to do things a little differently. I am a hands-on mother, but I don’t want to be “that mom” who complains all the time, who forgets to take care of herself and uses their child as an excuse for not going further, reaching higher. I believe that women are strong individuals, but we lack the confidence to know that we are capable. It is very easy to feel as though you aren’t enough, especially when you become a wife and a mother – You just don’t prioritize yourself anymore. But, we have to keep reminding ourselves that the times have changed. Women are given the opportunity to live life to the fullest now – Something our fore-mothers can only imagine of having! So, let’s all be successful career moms, let’s all not forget our kids’ spirit days in school, let’s all be understanding and supportive partners, and let us all be god-damn sexy and beautiful for ourselves!!

Now, you tell me – are you a Not Your Typical Motha too?


NYTM’S FIRST WORK-SERIES (November) — New posts every Sunday (Starting 11/11)

This is going to be my first blog-series for you working mamas. Have you ever woken up one morning and scrambled at trying to find a nice outfit for work? You grab an outfit that is fool-proof and comfortable but when you get to work, you realize you could do better? Wait, that’s me too. I have always wished there is a blog I can go to that gives me ideas on what I should wear. For instance, here are 5 looks to cover your Monday – Friday outfits. I will also be sharing my secrets to looking and feeling great, from hair ideas to grooming tips… So you can have it all. Or at least, some. 😉 Stay tuned for my five posts in this work-series, written and curated with one mission in mind, to help you be a not your typical motha too.
