All Good In The ‘Hood.


1

Good evening #Instagram. A few of you have recently followed, so I wanted to introduce myself.
1. My name is Bibi.
2. Bibi is an Urdu title used in Southern Asia for “one who is revered.” Tons of Desi women have this name. 🇵🇰
3. I’m not #Desi 😆😆😆
4. I’m an ultimate artist. I mean that I do and appreciate all kinds of art forms.
5. I’m a Mom to two, and a bonus mom to two. 🤰🏾🤰🏾🤰🏾
6. I make Bomb, authentic, creamy, tasty #Chai.
7. I’m here to share my journey to entrepreneurship with you, and teach how to live out loud, no matter what “they” say about it.
8. I hate wet socks. 🧦🧦🧦
9. I drive a hooptie, and she’s my Boo-thang. Specifically because of how I purchased her, where I was in life at the time, and it’s the first car I paid off in full on my own! 🚙 🚙🚙
10. I’m 36, but I feel like I’m 18. 💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾
11. I’m a resistance and lifestyle blogger who performs poetry and sings all the time.
12. I’m weird and get bored easily, so this is my last line. KBye!
Welcome to Mi Vida Loca!

“THANK YOU FOR DOING SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOURSELF TODAY!” .
.
I attended FOUR Zumba classes this week just to hear these words. Well, not just these words. Give me any opportunity to shake my booty 💃🏻 to Shakira and I’M THERE..
.
But, it was after each class while stretching that our instructor THANKED US for caring for ourselves. This really hit home for me and gave me the warm and fuzzies like you couldn’t believe..
.
FULL DISCLOSURE: Self-care has been one of the hardest habits for me to form. I’m still learning. I’m like a kindergartner of the self-care world. There are times where I don’t want to care for myself because I feel like I didn’t work hard enough that day. There are times where I feel guilty doing something for me when my to-do list continues to grow. I could go on and on about all the excuses I could make, and maybe you can too. However, there are not enough excuses in the 🌎 that could take away the fact that YOU matter..
.
Self-care is the ultimate form of self-love and self-appreciation. Maybe for you it’s taking an extra 5 minutes in the shower to clear your mind and walk through your day. Maybe it’s treating yourself to a cup of coffee, because let’s be honest, coffee is just a HUG IN A MUG! 😍 Maybe it’s looking at yourself in the mirror and saying, “I’m proud of you!” POINT BEING: YOU MATTER. Your life matters. You’re making a difference everyday in the things you say and do. But, I know for me, I make a positive difference in the things I say and do when I pour more time into myself. I tell my students at least once a day, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” .
.
So, no matter what craziness this day could bring. No matter what you may face, please know that YOU MATTER and you deserve that time, no matter how long or short to #selfcare .
.
Happy Friday babes! ✌🏻

NEW FAVOURITE FACE MASK 😍

This week's #facemaskfriday is my new favourite from @thebodyshop
Their 3-in-1 wash.scrub.mask from the Tea Tree range I initially picked up to use as a scrub (which I still do) but I tried it as a mask and won't be looking back! The tea tree is SO cooling and refreshing, so it's absolutely perfect after a long day. It's super gentle on my sensitive skin despite its scrub texture, and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean, hydrated and fresh. The tea tree oil also means it's great for blemished skin - it's pretty much my dream product! I can't wait to try out more from the Tea Tree range 💕

I just want to spend quality time with her.
She just wants to lick the bowl.
And do everything herself.
My little piece of stardust,
how dearly you are loved,
for knowing exactly what you want,
and for being exactly who you are. 💫 // #HER

#AFewThingsFriday ☕️🍁 This week I’m sharing five of my fall favorites! These are just a few of the things I’ve genuinely been loving lately, and sharing is caring.♥️ •

Rabbit Mighty Tights: my sweet friends at @runinrabbit sent me these tights and I absolutely love them! In addition to being super comfortable to run in, they are so buttery soft that I literally don’t want to take them off after a run or workout! How often can you say that about spandex?👌🏼

Healthy snack of the moment: peanut butter mixed into plain Greek yogurt to make a fruit dip for sliced apples. This tastes like such a treat and is a good, filling source of protein, healthy fat and carbs.🍎

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides: I began adding collagen to my morning coffee four months ago, and I’m still loving it! I was dealing with some frustrating cystic acne breakouts this summer, and call it coincidence if you want, but my skin has been completely clear (even of minor blemishes) since I’ve been using @vitalproteins, and my hair seems to be growing at a faster rate too!🤩

Scented candles: I know, so basic, right? But there are few things more cozy and calming than a warm house filled with your favorite seasonal scents. Right now I’m into the “Leaves” 3-wick candle from @bathandbodyworks. If I’m at home, that candle is burning. The scent is a combination of red crisp apple, golden nectar and warm clove spice, and is perfect for this month before we transition into the more wintery stuff.🔥🍃🍂

PJ’s! I’m all about the pajama party within 30 seconds of walking through the door this time of year. I‘m always cold, so I have to put on all the layers to feel comfortable. But don’t fall for those cute PJ bundles at Costco for $12.99! If you saw my stories this week you know the price is too good to be true.😂 Anyway! I also recently picked up a couple cute sets at Nordstrom Rack and Target, and basically live in them around the house. #thisisforty right?💃🏼

If you have a favorite thing you’re loving lately, please feel free to share!👇🏼 I told you I was going to make an effort to get more into this season.😉 Slowing down and appreciating the little things has definitely helped!

FRIDAY Feels ✨

I have a confession... My daughter is now 2 years old and I do not have a baby book 😳. It’s not like I didn’t try! Every one I picked up would be too pink or too generic or commercialized. None of them felt right. Today I came across As you grow. It’s gender neutral, whimsical, modern, and simply gorgeous! The more research I do, I see @magnolia featured it which isn’t surprising. I mean look at this book!!! So I of course NEED this book to finally put together two years worth and counting of beautiful memories. If you’ve been having a rough time with picking out the right book to hold all your treasures, I hope this finds you. With love, Rachel. #asyougrow @theweekendtype #babybook #scrapbooking #mamablog #hudsonvalley #hudsonvalleymama #rachelintheraw #instagood #memories #whimsical #theone #2yearslate #mamaofone #rachelbutler #magnolia #amazon #microblog #instagram #truth #moneyisthecockblockofmydreams #momboner #instamom

This weeks blog post - ‘The Bipolar Mum’, in mini blog format, which basically means it’s my Wednesday blog post in 10 quick, easy to read swipey swipey squares. 😆🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
And if you enjoy this one, why not CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO and check out some of my other posts, including the hugely popular - ‘Sexual Bereavement - are you mourning your pre kid sex life?’ And last week’s - ‘Improve your child’s behaviour with chores.’ 🙌🏻😆🤷🏽‍♀️
Have a great weekend guys. What are you all up to? I’m off to the theatre tonight to see my friend in a play and guess what??? My husband has taken the kids to the in-laws for the weekend so I am home alone!!! 😱 So far instead of loving it I’m finding it eerily quiet 🙄

Many moons ago one of my absolute favorite teachers shared this quote. It has always been one of my favorites, but I’ve never heeded the advice. .

A few weeks ago, my parents were in the middle of some home improvement projects and my mom sent me a picture from the back of my old bedroom door. I had painted this quote on it. She simply said “Do it!” .

I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. I needed that reminder on that day to not be afraid. To chase my dreams and accomplish great things. I don’t want to look back on my life and think “What if?” I don’t want to live scared of potential success because that also means potential failure. .

My (totally unsolicited) advice to anyone reading this, don’t wait. Do it! Write the blog, start the YouTube channel, go back to school and finish your degree. Do whatever sets your soul on fire. Don’t look back 20 years from now and wonder “What if?” .

Expat problems: moved to a new country with zero holiday decorations (besides one Cubs baseball themed nutcracker🤦🏼‍♀️) because we had 30 seconds to tour our new home and had no idea if it had any storage for them. I’m kicking myself because I have to buy SOMETHING to decorate our house for Christmas- not to mention find someone who will deliver us a live tree because I doubt there’s room on a city bus to bring one home (we don’t drive in London.) I picked up a few things to spark the holiday spirit in our home from a lovely local boutique today and listened to Christmas music on my walk home. Instant mood booster, and even inspired me to dig out my favorite red Stila matte-lipstick. Christmas is saved! 🎅🎄😅 .

When you’re not wanting meat so you sack off the bacon and have loads of egg instead 😂
Living for this on a Friday morning 😋💝

Finally got around to watching The Shape of Water. Not at all what I expected, but I was impressed. Quirky, weird & beautiful.

Real techniques mini multitask brush. 🖋Small handle with normal brush size. Perfevt for traveling
🖋P500 in most of thr online shops
🖋Same result but lesser hassle in bringing in long brush handles when traveling or at your make-up kit.

Wish they could release a set of this minis!

Shared from my @walk_portsmouth Instagram—From yesterday’s daily look-see of North Mill Pond from my second floor window, I caught view of this rustic and fun looking set of railcars parked on the track! Naturally I scooted out for some fun snapping with a new camera I am testing out.
I kinda like having the RR a bit behind my house. Thankfully, the train moves super slow once next to the ‘hood. So I barely hear it as it passes by which is rather infrequent; sometimes I just feel the soft rumble of the train going by. The RR keeps threatening to have a heavier presence, but so far nothing more than what it’s been in my 12 yrs here.
Maybe because I’m a traveler, I’m attracted to the sound of the train passing by. Even though I’ve never traveled by train but maybe twice in my life. The first time was in the Philippines going from the capital city out to a small fishing town to visit my grandparents. It was one of those wild developing country scenes, in which my parents were literally handing us little kids (I was 7 yrs old) onto the train through the windows because the doorways were too crowded to get us into the train!
Anyhoo, I also just like taking snaps of old rustic things. Their wear and tear is such a visual to the passage of time, and makes me feel warm, fuzzy, and nostalgic.

Fungi Friday. These little cuties were super tiny. Overwhelmingly feeling like a new phase in my life is about to begin. We got the keys to our new place in the Whiteaker today! I can’t wait to start hanging up art and making the kitchen my own.

Met my girls at @worldofbeerbrandon tonight. I only choose my favorite places to eat when I am on vacation and this time was no different. #WOB continues in its spot and getting better, today they had #HarryPotter #Trivia and it was great. I ate a #burger and #tatertots and drank a #milkstout #nitrobeer delish! Thank you to my friends for separating time to be with me today @natpio50 @mairi_mouse , @winstar21 and especially @hokuspokus15 because it was her #birthday . Love you girls ❤️ with the years our #friendship can only grow.
However, my highlight of the day, not including the super haul at @rossdressforless was sharing a video where “cierra los ojos” of #babyrastaygringo comes on my #iphoneplaylist and I tag one of them @babyrasta and he shares my story. #juventudcompleta #fangirling all the way back to #TheNoise #firstgirlcrush .
