Easy Salmon recipe – Stuffed with Cream Cheese

Easy Salmon recipe - Stuffed with Cream Cheese

What can I say, I am a foodie. As much as I love take-outs, nothing beats a good homemade meal.  Most days after picking the kids from school you’ll find me in my kitchen trying to figure out dinner. I do have weekly menus that I try to follow to the teeth, but there are days where I just hop on the internet to find something to make. I am one of those cooks that hardly measures anything.If I make it once, I can make it next time with no measuring involved. For the sake of this post, I made sure everything is measured to make it easy for you to follow.This stuffed salmon is one of my absolute recipes. It easy to make and takes less than an hour. Even my husband, who’s only specialty is boiling eggs can do this one. Find the ingredients and instructions below. Read More »

Plus Size Resort Wear- Dresses

Plus Size Resort Wear- Dresses- Mycurvesandcurls

Happy Monday loves,

One of my absolute dreams is slowly coming into reality- Plus size resort wear are finally available. For the longest time, shopping for vacation clothes for plus size women has been a nightmare for me. I mean, I would spend hours just looking at all the beautiful resort wear on Revolve, knowing that nothing will ever fit me. Even though we are not at that level just yet, plus size retailers such as Nordstrom and Eloquii are taking note by bringing us some beautiful resort wear. Some of them are perfect to wonder around the beach and some are just what you need for an evening out in the island. Here are some of my favorite plus size resort wear

Starting A Conversation With Your kids

I love when these two can get along and watch a show from beginning to end without any fight. It’s called the power of the Ipad and Netflix. Everything has changed from when we were young. Every kid now has one of these little devices on hand to keep them busy. As much as we try to reduce their online intake this is how things are headed now. They spend as much time with these little characters on their Ipad as they would with their friends. For that reason, it’s so important that we suggest shows with positive characters to help reinforce good values. I am sure you are aware that most time kids want to watch everything except what matches their proper age rating. Read More »

Healthy Lawn with Scotts® Lawn Response 9-1-1

Scotts® Lawn Response 9-1-1 x mycurvesandcurls.com Assa cisse
Guess who is going to get down and get dirty this summer? Apparently not me. When my husband asked me to come help him clear our backyard to get ready for summer gardening this is how I showed up. Oh yes! Even backyard work has to be done in style.

We’ve been trying to get our back and front yards lawn awesomely lush and green for a while now. It’s safe to say that we’ve made a considerable amount of mistakes along the way. Summer is getting closer and it’ll soon be time to get down with the lawn. We’ve had some time to get ready and plan things out. Over the next couple of posts, we’ll be documenting our efforts along the way and hope that you’ll take the journey with us (husband and I)  and possibly share some of your results as well.

12 Black Travel Bloggers To Follow On Instragram

12 Black Travel Blogger Accounts To Follow On Instragram

I am always looking for inspiration. Instagram has been one of those places where I found the most amazing fashionistas, decoristas and travelistas. As I mentioned in previous posts traveling and taking care of our home are two of my priorities this year. I follow quite a few travel bloggers on Instagram and Snapchat. The fact that I am taken from country to country all from the comfort of my home is unbelievable. What was life before Snapchat? Out of all those accounts I follow, only a few of them are black travel bloggers. I thought it would be fun to go on a quest to find more of them. Read More »

Pretty Spring Handbags

Pretty Spring Handbags amazon Canada

Soft colored handbags are almost non-existent in my closet. I tend to stick to neutral colors not only because they are easy to transition from season to season, but you can also wear them with everything. We all need a little bit of color in our lives, and spring is the perfect time to swap out your neutrals for something on the softer side. Here is a list of some of my favorite Spring handbags available at every price point and fit every lifestyle.

Off The Shoulder And White Crop Denim

I hope y’all had an amazing week! I sure had a busy one. I’d like to say that’ll take it slow this weekend but who am I kidding? With summer rolling in there is so much to do around the house. I am working on a fun project for the blog and hoping to finish painting the pergola in the backyard. Talking about summer, how cute is this outfit? I think it is the perfect combo for both spring and summer. It features two trends I am loving this season – The cropped pants and off the shoulder. You may think, I am a bit bias because I am the off the shoulder girl, but who wouldn’t want to show a little skin especially when it’s hot outside. Read More »
