MAG NEWS: KANYE WEST, ERYKAH BADU + KIDS COVER HARPER’S BAZAAR ICONS ISSUE

Harper’s Bazaar recently unveiled their September 2018 “Icons” issue featuring celebs and their kids. The newsstand issue features Bruce Springsteen and his daughter while subscribers will receive the issue featuring Kanye West posing with his two oldest kids, North and Saint.

The rest of the “Icons” featured in the magazine include, Erykah Badu and two of her children, Lionel and Nicole Richie, and Christina Aguilera with her son and daughter. I am very family-oriented so I love seeing celeb families on magazine covers.

5 UNEXPECTED WAYS I UNWIND AFTER A LONG ASS DAY

Lately, my days have been long and hard. I’m a full-time employee and mother to a four year-old. I love finding ways to unwind, relax and clear my mind of the day’s stress. Here are 5 unexpected ways I unwind after a long ass day:

Take a Bubble Bath

I am more of a shower person but, lately I have been enjoying a bubble bath using LUSH products. I feel so relaxed and ready for bed after a nice long and hot bubble bath.

Have Some Ice Cream

Ice Cream always made me feel better as a little girl and today it brings about a happiness I cannot explain. Maybe I associate ice cream with the fun times in my childhood so it always brightens my day and mood.

Put Headphones on and listen to music

Music always makes me feel better – I listen to 90s R&B when I feel loved and like singing at the top of my lungs, and pop and Hip Hop when I’m exercising or cleaning the house. Music always does the trick for my many moods.

Have a glass of wine – Need I say more!

Netflix and Chill – literally!
