the 5ive



I haven’t posted a “The 5ive ” post in a while because as most of you know I gave birth a little over a month ago and during the last months of my pregnancy I was in complete chill mode as far as blogging went. When you’re as big as house, can’t see your feet and tired all the time, all you want to do is eat and sleep!

I might have been absent from the blog, but I was very present on the web. On those nights where I couldn’t find a comfortable position to sleep in, I surfed the web and came across some cool finds, some of which I’m about to share below.

Let’s do this!


First – A huge thank you to Fashion Bomb Daily, Uptown Magazine, Red Tricycle, MKF and This Afropolitan Life for featuring me on their sites/social media networks, y’all made a girl feel special, I appreciate the love!

SecondBree Newsome ! #freebree

Third – I usually don’t watch the BET awards, but I did over the weekend  because Traci Ellis Ross was co-hosting, and everybody loves Traci Ellis Ross! Then this happened and well… I danced… in my living room… like no one was watching, except Riah and Micah we’re watching ( I think they were scared) they’ve never seen mommy so excited. I might have  I also rapped and sang every lyric because why not?!

Fourth – Are you living life…. If not watch this inspirational video from fellow Canadian, Shameless Maya!  watch this!

Fifth – Last but definitely not least (insert drumroll here) … I  can fit my pre-baby jeans again!!!!
So what they have a little stretch in them, it’s kind of a big deal for me considering that I still eat like a pregnant woman ha! But now that my 6 weeks of recovery (C-section) are almost up, I plan on being a little more active and by active I mean no longer giving into my crazy cravings ;)


as always outfit details can be found on IG ( @milknhonee)

    GIRL! I’m so jello that you can fit into your jeans already. You look so good! I couldn’t fit my jeans before I got preg, so I got some work to do. I enjoyed the Bad Boy reunion too! My big preg butt was up, getting it in!

      Hey Girl!
      Listen I couldn’t believe it myself… Mind you they do have some stretch in them but shoot I’m happy as everything, it took me two years to lose the weight with Riah!. I think I shared this with you in the comments on your blog, but this second pregnancy was like.. Whoa.. I got better quick and I’ve been nursing like crazy which also helps with losing weight! Wasn’t that Bad Boy Reunion the Bomb! Child I was in here getting it in too, these poor babies were looking at me like what’s wrong with her!
