I Get It From My Momma: A $500 Mother's Day Giveaway

5/06/2013

First I want to say congrats to my nephew CJ for becoming a Tampa Bay Buccaneer over the weekend!

Usually, I do outfit posts on Mondays, but I was given an offer I couldn't refuse: talk about my mom and give you muses a chance to win 10 $50 gift cards!What I love most about my mom is that she is a quiet soul. She has never been much of a talker, but when she does talk, she knows exactly what to say...and people listen. And that's something that I hope I was able to get from her because I would consider it to be the best advice she ever gave me, without even saying a word.

Happy Mother's Day! 
Some interesting facts about my mom
♥ Her hair used to be red and she wore it in pigtails when she was younger ♥
♥ She only wears skirts and dresses ♥
♥ Clearly, I get my cheeks from her ♥
♥ She has a little Asian in her ♥
♥ One of her favorite pastimes when she was a kid was climbing trees ♥
♥ She cooks the best Jamaican food in all the lands ♥
♥ Her calves are amazing, so credit my legs to her ♥Chasing Davies // Oh to Be a Muse // Sandy a la Mode // TfDiaries // Jessica...

  26. I was quite a handful when I was growing up. My mom used to tell me that one day I would see that she really did know what she was talking about. Sure enough about age 26, I got wise. My own daughters are now at that point in their lives. Just amazing....

  41. That browns are my color. Even growing up in the 80s and all those colorful eyeshadows, I wasn't able to wear them. But I did look like a clown. I've worn the same eyeshadow for over 20 years!
