  • My mom’s favorite church song is Grace & Mercy. When @pintsizefaith they sent me these shirts, they didn’t know.  I believe this was a message from my mom that his Grace & Mercy will bring me through. Thank you @pintsizefaith  for all the inspiring messages.
  • The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • 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. Links to what I’m wearing in profile. #momstyle
  • *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?

Master Bathroom Renovation: Before & After

June 20, 2019

My master bathroom is finally done (cue the shouting music). This process started unexpectedly after a massive water leak in my master bathroom under the tub early March. My master bathroom is directly over my living room and the leak caused my living room ceiling to fall in. So my house looked like a hurricane hit it. We had to get the insurance company involved which hasn’t been a pleasant experience. We basically had to pull up all the tiles and floorboards because moister was found underneath, hence the complete bathroom renovation.

Started from the bottom and now we’re here! I’m so excited to share with you. This post will be full of photos but I’ll go into more detail about the renovation and tips that will save you money on future projects!

Looking at the before pics make me cringe. I can’t believe that I’ve lived with this 90’s gold and white bathroom for 4 years! It was old but it was clean. I also didn’t have the money to shell out for a new bathroom. I prayed for this, I didn’t know that God would send it to me in the form of a massive leak.

What do you think of my new bathroom renovation? I seriously don’t even want to use it because it’s so pretty and I don’t want to mess it up. The bathroom is fully functional. There are still a few minor details that need to be addressed and the frameless shower needs to be installed.

I’m so happy with how it turned out. I designed and purchased everything myself to save money and had my contractor provide the labor. It was mentally challenging at times, especially with everything going on in my life but I made it to the other side (barely LOL). Like I said earlier, I will go in to details with tips on how you can save a LOT of money on renovations. If you have specific questions please leave them in the comments or email me thebabyshopaholic@gmail.com.

    The bathroom is gorgeous! It’s clean, classic yet modern. Is there glass surrounding the shower ? If not will you be adding? Why/why not?
