Selamat Datang!


Welcome to my blog! It means so much to me that you are here, following behind my footprints as I try to leave my own mark in this world.

Not Your Typical Motha is where I write about anything and everything that is near and dear to my heart; Topics ranging from style, parenting, family, places and food. It can also be a place for me to pour my heart’s contents when I am having a challenging feat at life (no one told you life would be easier when you get older). It will be a place where I come for solace because I am as bullish as it gets (Taurean all around).

I am going to get real over here. This is by no means a place for me to give advice because I am far from perfect, and I am the last person you’d want to get advice from. But, I hope that I can shed some light to you and thus gain from this experience myself. I hope that you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoy writing them for you.

Why am I Not Your Typical Motha?

I find that no matter how old I am, I tend to do things a little differently. I am a hands-on mother, but I don’t want to be “that mom” who complains all the time, who forgets to take care of herself and uses their child as an excuse for not going further, reaching higher. I believe that women are strong individuals, but we lack the confidence to know that we are capable. It is very easy to feel as though you aren’t enough, especially when you become a wife and a mother – You just don’t prioritize yourself anymore. But, we have to keep reminding ourselves that the times have changed. Women are given the opportunity to live life to the fullest now – Something our foremothers can only imagine. Let’s all be successful career moms, let’s all be excellent mothers and partners, and let us all be goddamn sexy and beautiful for ourselves. YES – US!

Now, you tell me – are you a Not Your Typical Motha too?
