Thanks to Purex & Social Insiders for providing me with a sample of Purex plus Clorox 2 in exchange for a product review. As always all opinions expressed are 100% my own; we don’t call it Kay’s Ways for nothing!
For the whole month of April I think I put up one blog post and one YouTube video. Now we all know I struggle with consistency (I’m still working on it but just make sure you’re subscribed to be notified when something new is released!) but only one of each for the entire month that’s really not like me but with good reason. Yet it’s time to get my mind right y’all and I’m here to tell y’all what I’ve been up to in my absence. I’m usually pretty private about my life online but in the spirit of Mother’s Day and because it’s Mind Right Monday it is what it is. And you guys should know by now when I’m gone for some time I always come back bearing gifts so umm yeah, make sure you read the whole post to find out what you could get!
So, What I’ve Been Up To???
For starters, these kids keep me pretty darn busy. Having a 2 and 3 year old to chase after is no joke; Jreu pretty much entertains himself by running from room to room giving everyone in the house their turn of terror. He’ll be entering Pre K this September; and he’s ready for it too! He can’t wait even though I told him he’s gonna have to sit still and actually listen. Ms Khloe is attached to her momma but independent at the same time. Having two older brothers, she’s pretty rough but yet still loves being a girl. From me doing her hair or nails she’s always down for a little pampering then will go smudge the damn polish playing with the boys. The struggle is real!
My oldest, Daejon is pretty cool, calm and collected (just like his mom & dad LOL). He’s the oldest so as I’m typing this he’s a little upset that he has to clean up the room that apparently he didn’t dirty. The hazard of being the oldest I guess (trust I used to hear it from my older siblings as well). I’m so proud of him though; he helps out a lot with his brother and sister – reading to them, playing with them, giving them a snack, he takes good care of them and watches out for them as a big brother should. I can’t believe Daejon is in the double digit age range and will be graduating next month. No more elementary school for him – I’M NOT READY!!!
Me and babe was actually supposed to go out of town to celebrate our 13 year anniversary but we changed our plans since his mom was sick. My mother in law’s health hasn’t been the greatest but we’ve been dealing. Constantly praying and hoping for the best (Prayer warriors if you’re reading send some this way). It’s the only way I know to deal with things. As someone who lost their mother at 22 years old who wasn’t ill, it’s hard for me to watch babe suffer with his mom so I’ve been here to be his rock.
It was actually his idea to stop at Dunkin Donuts one day (he lives for Apple Crumb pastry they have) and I couldn’t pass up my French Vanilla Iced Coffee. What I didn’t expect was this new donut! Y’all if you make it to DD anytime soon trust me you NEED to try this Blueberry Cobbler Croissant Donut!!! Hell I may go back tomorrow to get me one myself. It was seriously that good and actually has real blueberries inside, need I say more?!
And of course I had to squeeze in some time for my love of beauty
Here in NYC it was the season of trade shows. I was fortunate enough to not only attend IMATS on pro night (peep my haul video HERE) with my girl Dana from DMarieBeauty824 . I also had the opportunity to work with the lovely ladies from LA Splash Cosmetics for the rest of the weekend! Even got the opportunity to meet the gorgeous Laura G who recently collaborated with them on the Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks. And you should already know about my love for liquid lipsticks so of course I picked up a few from the collection! I had a blast and everyone was so nice, it definitely was an amazing experience.
Just a few weeks later came The Makeup Show and unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the actual show but I did get to go to the Press Preview Event the night before. Just like last year we got a bag of goodies, many of which I will reviewing for you beauties in the upcoming weeks. Also got to hang out with my girls Lisa of Lisa a La Mode and Brandi aka PrettyPRChick as well as a few other beautiful beauty bloggers. All this melanin tho!
So what have I been up to?
You know the usual, being a wife, mother, employee, entrepreneur, running errands, grocery shopping. I even got to test out the new 2016 Madza CX3 for a week (more details coming in a full review next week!). Oh and how could I forget LAUNDRY!
Purex plus Clorox 2 Stain Fighting Detergent
I’m sure you can imagine with a family of 5 the laundry is no joke! See in NYC a lot of the apartment rentals don’t allow you to have a washing machine in your space so I usually do laundry bi-weekly. Luckily this time around I was able to try out the new Purex plus Clorox 2 stain fighting detergent. From paint and markers to pizza and barbecue sauce if it’s around my kids will get it on their clothes (even Daejon!). There’s been countless times I’ve just tossed an item or cut it up into a rag since it was forever destined to be stained.
That’s what I like about the Purex plus Clorox 2, got a stain? No problem, just pretreat the spot with some of the detergent and then throw it in the laundry as normal. This detergent is built to take on 100 stains including chocolate, tomato sauce (a la that pizza I told y’all about), ice cream, even grass and blood y’all! You can even use Purex plus Clorox 2 on your whites and it’s also safe for colors taking the guess work out or need for lugging additional supplies to the laundromat (I mean as if laundry for 5 isn’t enough?!).
