It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
It’s the most stressful time of the year!

We are weeks away, are you ready?
Hosting Thanksgiving can be overwhelming and stressful and beautiful all at the same time, so it’s important to stay calm and prep ahead. There are so many things you can do in advance to make life easier, like cleaning out the fridge and even cooking ahead. To give the homes a Thanksgiving ambiance, many people decorate them with vintage floor lamps and other antique things, especially in the living room and dining room.

My day doesn’t usually start until I’ve had that first cup of coffee. My Keurig brewer has been a lifesaver, especially on busy days like Thanksgiving. I never used to drink coffee however after trying a coffee at my friend’s house a few months ago, I decided I wanted to buy a coffee machine. She told me she spent a while reading reviews on websites like before she bought a machine for herself. Coffee machines can be expensive so doing your research before buying one can be really useful. It’s also important to know the difference between an espresso and a nespresso machine, click here for a full explanation of what nespresso is so that you can make an informed choice when choosing the right coffee machine for you. So before I get started, I enjoy a little me time and use my Keurig K-Latte Single Serve Coffee and Latte Maker to brew a fresh cup.

Then, it’s off to the races as I dive into meal prep, decor and making room in the fridge.

Before you know it, everyone has arrived and we’ve all enjoyed a delicious meal together. From there, it’s time for dessert and no dessert is complete without coffee for all, especially on Thanksgiving.

I also like to set up a dessert and coffee station with everything my guests need, including the Keurig K-Latte coffeehouse brewer. A lot of specialty coffeemakers can be complicated, time-consuming and messy, but the Keurig K-Latte Coffeehouse Brewer is simple to use. Everyone of my guests can enjoy exactly what they want, from a fresh cup of coffee to a creamy latte made from any K-Cup pod in just minutes and all from the same brewer!

Then we all find ourselves in my living room on the couch, stuffed and happy.

The Keurig K-Latte Coffeehouse Brewer is available exclusively at Walmart for only $99. I know that some people can’t justify spending that much on a coffee maker, so if you’re holding out for a deal, be sure to wait until Black Friday and Keurig Coffee Makers will most likely have some deals on then!

The MOMS and Jada Pinkett Smith

The MOMS hosted Jada Pinkett Smith and her mom, Adrienne Norris for an event at a private residence in New York City for the launch of the 2nd season of Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch.

The MOMS also introduced Jada to The MOMS Marketplace filled with mom business owners and mom entrepreneurs. Nothing was off-limits with The Moms and an audience of over 100 Mom influencers. Her number one piece of advice to all Moms is “let your kids be who they are” Women in business are important, there need to be more conversations about working Moms doing what they can to start their own businesses or thrive in the corporate world whilst bringing up a family. That is why when moms are pushing themselves to do everything they can, they need some inspiration, whether that be checking out some Stay at home mom quotes or getting business and financial advice from other working moms. Supporting each other is a must, so when Jada and Adrienne came to speak to us all, it was evident they had worked hard to get to where they are now whilst being full-time moms.

Jada spent time with each of the entrepreneurs in the The MOMS Marketplace to learn about their companies and the stories behind them, including a new fitness app, Gixo, founded by Selina Tobaccowala – the founder of, a customizable handbag company, Goldno.8 , a T-shirt you can design called Chalk of The Town and a makeup Line by Khuraira Musa , and NY Cakepops, a dessert company started by a Mexican immigrant now sold over the country including in Yankee Stadium.
