Who is Nola Bougie?

When I had my son, I was told that MY life was over! I would no longer enjoy spa days, early hair appointments or happy hours with the girls. “Why?”, I asked. The response, “Because you are a mom.” What?!!! Do women really believe this? Do women really believe that they can no longer take care of themselves and enjoy life because they have a child or a husband?  

I'm a wife, mom and a pharmacist of 15 years, who loves Rose', spa days and some good tea. Don’t get it confused, I still jump out of my seat when I hear "Cash Money Records taking over for the '99 and 2000." Let me show you how to “Embrace Your Inner Bougie” and make Self Care a priority in your life!
