Hey mamas!  It’s been a whole month since our Makeup N’ Martini Launch Party.  Thank you ladies so much for attending and participating in the introduction of Pittsburgh Brown Mamas to the city!  During the party, mamas had their makeup done, participated in the #GoodMama ceremony and sipped wine and gossiped (which is what we really wanted to do).  Join us on October 24th from 5:30 – 8pm to do it all again for our Mama N’ Me Costume Party.  (Click here for details)

Oh! Remember to join our private Facebook page, by clicking here, for details on joining Pittsburgh Brown Mamas.  Well, here are the highlights!

4 Good Manners that Black Children Rock At!

4 Good Manners that Black Children Rock At!

Sit up straight? Get your hands out of your mouth? If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say nothin’ at all.  Those are just a few of the behavior expectations I remember my mom setting for me when I was a kid.  While the headlines will have us brown mamas thinking that Black kids are a mess, and none of our babies are doing anything right, I beg to differ.  Yes, we have our fair share of…

Be an Indoor Gardener with these 4 Houseplants

Be an Indoor Gardener with these 4 Houseplants

I LOVE my houseplants.  Not only do they clean the air in my home, which is crucial due to my hubby’s allergies, but they also give life to every room they are in. Houseplants can be like a modern version of the knickknacks that your grandma had.  You can literally put them anywhere.  I use one of my plants as a filler in my fireplace that I never ignite.  Houseplants can accent a bookcase…

3 Ways to Make Me-Time into We-Time

3 Ways to Make Me-Time into We-Time

Dinner and a movie get very boring after awhile.  Me and Mack have been married for seven years now, and our days of dinner and a movie are definitely waning.  In fact going out at all, since we have three children, just seems either impossible or too much of a task at this point.  So, we are having to find ways to turn our lifestyle into something that we can enjoy together.  That means things…

What Do You Do When Your Man Loses His Job?

What Do You Do When Your Man Loses His Job?

It’s been talked and joked about it many Black films.  Black men, do not, under any circumstances tell your beautiful, Black wife when you lose your job. And the movies are partially right.  No Black woman wants the burden of a jobless man.  But mamas, less face it, our men are often the last hired and the first fired.  So, if you are in your relationship for the long haul, you may want…

Book Review: Light Skin, Dark Skin + Giveaway

Book Review: Light Skin, Dark Skin + Giveaway

Light Skin, Dark Skin by Quill Reed is a endearing story of self-acceptance for brown children. The new author narrates a book of rhyming poems that tells of God’s unique creation in the making of people of all different ethnicity, colors and sizes.  My 6-year-old is a new reader and found the book an easy read and interesting story.  The pages are pushed forward by simple, but beautiful…
