• I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

Black Excellence

January 22, 2018

I hope you all had a great weekend!  After being “snowed in” for almost a week, Atlanta finally thawed out.  Peyton only went to school once last week.  Even Mister was home for a few days.  The week totally threw me off track.  I’m not looking forward getting up early, but kind of looking forward to getting back to my routine.  Another routine that I’m excited to get back to, Mommy and Me looks!  Our first look of the year in all black is giving me black excellence vibes.

Peyton and Harper: Coat, Crazy 8 | Jeans (similar) | Shoes, FabKids |Hat (old)

Trina: Coat, Nordstrom Rack (similar) | Gucci Belt | Faux fur headband (similar) | Shoes, Zara

It’s been a hot minute since the girls and I took photos.  I think they were excited to get back to it.  I shared with you guys that I was down in the dumps after the holidays (HERE), and I guess I drug them down with me.  We’re happy to be back in the game!

I really love this look.  We got that P Diddy black excellence vibe going on.  In this post-Obama era, it’s important that we celebrate our blackness and continue to strive for excellence.  Black Excellence is going to be a theme around here.  I feel that it always has been but we’re going to turn it up a notch. I will continue to promote and celebrate black love, families, black girl magic, wealth and health.  I hope you’re here for it! Cheers to Black Excellence!

    You and your girls are too cute, I love it!! And can I just say how hot your shoes are. Me and my feet aren’t in agreement with heels these days, lol but I have many in my closet I need to either wear or get rid of.
