Hello all you warriors of words, today blog is a little bit different in a way that’s never been done here before.

Rachel and her husband Ahmed has a fantastic blog “YamteQ”. I highly recommend discovering their blog especially for mothers. They provide a lot of fun informational blogs and resources. You can follow Rachel on social media and don’t forget to subscribe. Thank you Rachel for including me on this fun thread.


The inspiration for the Vogue Magazine Series (VMS) is to get an intimate insight on today favorite celebrities, reality personalities and political personalities.
