• I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

2 Weeks to a Whiter Smile Before + After

November 7, 2014
Growing up, dental care was not a priority in my household. While there are many great dentists all around such as Dentist New York City, my family had a busy schedule. My mom worked twelve plus hours a day to take care of us, so the last thing she was going to do was stay on top of my dentist appointments. Besides the “required” school visits that was all I got. Gross huh? By the grace of God, I grew up to have straight and off white teeth. I’ve noticed the older you get, the more that “white” starts to look like beige. This wasn’t something that bothered me too much, as I knew I had options such as Dentist New York City and the idea of using teeth whitening products.

Instead of racking up a crazy dentist bill, I took the two weeks to whiter smile challenge with Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit.

Wearing Stila Beso liquid lipstick.

The Crest 3D White Luxe system is an at home two week tooth whitening kit. The Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit kit comes with 14 treatments, two in each pack for upper and lower.
In addition to the Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit, Crest also has a collection of 3D products like mouthwash and toothpaste. During my 2 weeks to white journey, I used the Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Sensitivity toothpaste. Using the Crest 3D White Luxe Sensitivity toothpaste is not required but will offer some relief if you are experience tooth sensitivity when lifting away surface stains.

My teeth have always been on the whiter side so I figured my results would go unnoticed. Boy was I wrong! Even when I was taking pictures, I kept thinking to myself, I’m not going to be able to tell the difference. My teeth are clearly a few shades whiter in just two short weeks.

My 2 weeks to a whiter smile journey with Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit kit was super simple to use. I set my alarm to remind me to do my treatment for an hour each night. The Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit strips stayed in place during the treatment. I was surprised how easily the strips adhered to my teeth and did not move. I did not experience any tooth sensitivity issues using the Crest 3D White treatments. I’m no dentist but if you have sensitive teeth, I would suggest using the 3D sensitivity toothpaste and maybe spacing out treatments every other day. Again, I’m not a dentist, so if you have any concerns it would be wise to consult with a professional at a cosmetic dentistry.

I’m very excited about my results. I can’t believe I was able to achieve whiter teeth in the privacy of my home that could have easily been a $500 dentist visit.

    Yes I have bought them and YES they work!! The only thing I have found is that if I continue with my coffee and red wine ways (duh, not getting rid of those), then I have to keep up very regularly with the whitening! But overall, the results are amazing. Do tell what red lipstick that is in your first picture?? Divine!

    I need to get me some 3D White Luxe Whitestrips! I tried 3D whitestrips before but I wasn’t consistent and your teeth look white girl! Lipstick is popping too!
