  • Fall porch loading... I want to add some hay stacks, lanterns & maybe more pumpkins but then I’m like, nah looks good enough. If you watched my stories you know i have a long list of projects I’m trying to get done before Thanksgiving. Get ready for the home content.  Some of my projects include but not limited to is transforming Harper’s room into a big girl room, mini master bedroom makeover, new kitchen lights, powder room update and possible a guest bathroom renovation. Oh, I also gotta clean up before my family arrives. My head hurts thinking about it but I’m going to do the best I can.  #teamdoingthemost #heytrinashome
  • Tonight is the season finale of @davidmakesman and I’m on the edge of my seat.  Another important women in David’s life is his gifted class teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. She sees the potential in David and continues to guide him as much as she can at school, his safe haven. Teachers, coaches and mentors  play in important role in our children’s lives.  Peyton has a teacher that looks like her this year and Harper thinks her teachers are family members. I think most of us have a teacher that stands out whether it be elementary or college. I still remember the first teacher that I felt really cared about me.  Sometimes that’s all it takes. 
Make sure you tune in to David Makes Man or catch up on @owntv 9/8c #davidmakesman #ad
  • It was all good just a week ago. I brought in my birthday in Aruba for my friends wedding last week.  It’s been hard to get back to reality. I realized I’m in desperate need of a time management makeover but I don’t have the time 😩. Now that I’ve started @supermomculture, trying to balance that, life and blog hasn’t been easy.  If you have some time management hacks, please share 😘
  • Let me introduce you to the new learning playground, @tumblesjohnscreek. Harper celebrated her birthday there a couple of weeks ago. Tumbles has Indoor zipline, rock wall, play ground & STEM classes and more! They are the unicorn of indoor playgrounds! Sharing details from our experience on the blog.  They also have a Halloween parents night out.  Details on the blog or visit

  • 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

Bathroom Organization

April 12, 2018

I’m a little embarrassed to show my BEFORE bathroom sink but I know this under the sink look is quite common. Being the beauty junky that I am, and having products on hand for both Peyton and Harper, my bathroom cabinet stay out of control. Weird thing is, I knew where everything was. We have plans to remodel our bathroom but until then I need to get my life together. I just got tired of looking at it in this state. Since I’m still on my #OrganizedonFleek roll, I decided to make my bathroom more organized and functional.

This is my before *Hangs head in shame*. Before you judge me, send me a pic of your bathroom right now LOL!

I started by clearing everything out. I had so many expired and empty bottles it was sad. Here is all the trash from my sink and drawers.

Once I cleared it out and wiped it down, I put down some contact paper from the Dollar Tree. Not sure how long the adhesive will stick, but it looks pretty and was only a dollar. So far so good.

I picked up these metal mesh drawers from Aldi a while ago but you can find some similar HERE.

I picked these containers in the food section (so much cheaper than the acrylic ones) at the Container Store. The plastic bins with handles (in the first pic) are from The Container Store as well.

This is my vanity drawer before…. sigh…

I even decided to tackle my vanity drawer. That thing was a hot mess as well. I was using some cheap dollar store dividers but they didn’t work out too well. I pick up these dividers from the Container Store but similar HERE. These little acrylic boxes are a life saver and only $1.50! You can find them HERE. I’ll be storing all my hairpins and safety pins in them.

Have you guys been enjoying the organizational videos? This series has definitely motivated me to get my house all the way together. In case you missed them you can check out my pantry organization HERE, kitchen sink HERE and my laundry room HERE. We still have one more #OrganizedonFleek gift card left to give away in April.

    I’m impressed, Trina! Any mama knows how difficult it is to keep everything in order with little ones so kudos to you 🙂 I’ll definitely check out Container Store.
