• Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad

This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.

  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well! Tune in to the powerful series #DavidMakesMan on OWN on Wednesdays at 9/8c #AD
  • I used 3 packs of @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair in Suga Mama and one pack of exotic curl in coffee (said wrong in video). My edges can’t handle single braids so cornrows it is! #latchedandhooked #bohobraids

Back to School Famous

August 26, 2019

This post is sponsored by Famous Footwear.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Back to school shopping has always been a big deal to me. I remember when I used to go back to school shopping with my mom when I was in elementary school.  She used to let me pick out my outfits.  Not only did picking out the perfect fit give a chance to show my personal style, but it also boosted my confidence in school.  I want my girls to have that same feeling so we headed to Famous Footwear for the girls to pick out some new shoes for school.

Famous Footwear is known for their great selection and great prices for the entire family.   Babies, boys, girls, men and women, they have it all.  They have all the name brands and trends at low prices. 

For a 4th grader, Peyton isn’t too picky about her shoes.  Comfort is important to her.  Peyton will set her own trend if it means a comfortable shoe.  I love that she is confident in her style.

Harper, on the other hand, was all about the lights!  She wanted light up shoes no matter what.  These were her top two choices for back to school.

We took our time to try on all the options the girls picked out.  The sales associates were great, helping us to find sizes and letting us know about the current deals going on.  With all the cute shoes, it was a tough decision for them to pick just one. 

Famous Footwear made shoe shopping with the girls a breeze.  All the names and styles in one place. The girls are ready to style their shoes for school.

Harper decided to go with silver and pink Skechers with heart lights for her first day of Pre-K 3. She walked in like a BOSS!  She wanted to make sure everyone saw her shoes.  Harper definitely was #feelingfamous in her new kicks. 

I’ve learned that allowing kids to express themselves (within reason) with style can help their confidence in starting the new school year.  Roll up to your Famous Footwear or shop online HERE to save and send your child back to school feeling famous!
